A post a month...

Times flies. I know, I know. The WORST excuse ever... but an excuse none the less! :)

So this week was jammed packed with awesomeness in the states and of course, I'm here chilling (working really hard) in Australia without American television to catch any of the goodness on tv...

Here's what I've missed:

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK .. ugh. The clothes are to die for. I am a big fan of Whitney Port's newest collection and one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta debuted her (questionably terrible) line a few days ago. Ah, the good, the bad AND the ugly! 

MTV VIDEO AWARDS. Seriously, I love this stuff. I've been a fan of MTV for... well my entire life! and I've watch pretty much all of the award ceremonies. Evidently I missed an amazing one because Kanye was a b*tch and stole the limelight from Taylor Swift. Golden. Who else would storm the stage and proclaim someone else as the best? Only Kanye. 

Hmm... I know there was something else happening that I was sad to have missed any converge on, but it seems to have escaped my mind at the moment!

Oh, The Places You'll Go!

It's been ages since I've updated and for once I have a great excuse-- I moved to Australia! I've been talking about it for a while and I finally decided to go back to school to get a Masters! Hello, Grad school life (goodbye any sort of money I had saved...)

 I really should have taken picture of me packing because it was probably the funniest/ worst thing I have ever done. I wanted to take my entire wardrobe but that was a little over the 90 pound limit (turns out that is not really that much weight). I impressed myself when I fit in many (many) clothes, makeup, accessories, several purses, 3 books, sheets, blanket, duvet, a pillow AND 13 pairs of shoes!

I moved from a country with 4 distinct season to a country that gets hot, hotter and dead hot! eek! I'm really not used to heat like this and my clothes are not really heat appropriate. It's the middle of winter and I'm hot wearing my jeans. Apparently it's only going to get hotter from now on...  uh oh! This may be my one chance for a tan-- ever! :)

On to the better things: Before I left I picked up a sweater from Bootlegger. I will take a picture because it's my new favourite piece of clothing and I wear it all the time!  A friend of mine owned it and I borrowed it in NYC (and accidently left it at Sushisamba and had to take a taxi back in the morning to get it... oh, good nights in the City!) It's great for throwing on for an evening out or the class in the morning! (really, must find a picture)

I've been here for about 6 weeks now (I know, I know... I should have updated before this) and I have bought one purse. Nothing else. Can you imagine going weekS without buying anything? Yah, me neither. It hurts.  I need to avoid the many (MANY) malls in the area and leave my cards at home... sad. BUT in the end I'll be a Master of Media! It'll all be worth it in the end! 

Off to find a job. Must be able to buy clothes and travel!

Work clothes...

Who doesn't love clothes? I certainly love clothes!

I have a new job that requires me to wear navy scrubs and white shoes. Have you ever tried to find white shoes in the middle of winter? It's quite a feat, let me tell you! I also don't look nearly as cute in all navy as I do in my other work outfits! haha oh well. The upside, I am saving loads on not having to buy "work clothes"!! yay!

Shopping, again.

I think I have an addiction to shopping! This weekend was suppose to be full of cleaning and laundry and all those fun things I hate doing during the week but instead, I went out in the freeing snow-rain to go shopping! It was sooo chilly and I wore flats... foolish (but stylish!) and had my cute (but broken) leopard print umbrella in hand...

After 3 hours, I purchased a great coat for.... well, for no occasion really. It's not warm (it's actually quite deceivingly chilly), but it's super super cute with a great neckline that can fold up or down, fun buttons and a belt!! I couldn't pass it up. It's sad that the majority of my regrets in life are based on pieces I didn't buy!!

Secondly I picked up a great dress by ONLY called the "Mad Party Dress". It's got a sweetheart neckline with a zipper up the front in black almost sweatpant like material. Comfy and cute. I Love it.

It may not seem like a lot, but I neglected to write about the other stuff I bought last week! A cute black skirt, a few tops, summer dresses (I couldn't resist!)... opps!

I may be poor, but I'll be stylish!

Yours in super cute new clothes,

**pictures come soon!

I am a geek.

Have you seen this:


HALLOWE'EN!!!-- "u r lamerz like Paris Hilton"

Hallowe'en is nearly here and as per usual, I have no idea what I am going to be!!!

This might be my favourite so far on my search! --- nothing I would ever be, but hilarious!


Smile with your eyes...

I'm not usually home during the day... but today I got a day off work and that means catching up on all the shows I never get to watch! Yay!

This morning I watched the Tyra Show. Generally I get my Tyra fix via America's Next Top Model (which is probably enough Tyra for one week) but I opted to watch MAKEOVERS with Beyonce's mum on Tyra Show today! Love it! For all of you that watch ANTM, the makeover is always the best!!!

Check them here!

P.S. Next Tuesday on Tyra, rapper T.I!!
