Ella Verberne between shows at MBFWA.

Highs:

  1. This amazing video of Drake out on the streets in disguise, asking people what they think of him. If you haven’t seen it, watch immediately and make sure you watch ’til the end.
  2. I spent five days in Sydney last week. I went to fashion week. I mean, what else is there to say?  How could that not be in this week’s highs?
  3. This is not as good but if you’re like me and you find it interesting to see actors sing (especially when they’re really good) you will like this. It’s Anne Hathaway and Jimmy Fallon singing Broadway versions of rap songs. Also, Anne Hathaway sings the line “you dirty Hatha-hating bitch ass bitch don’t kill my vibe” which is pretty great.
  4. Did anyone watch the Lorde live stream from Coachella? Damnit she is nailing it in terms of style. She’s nailing it all ’round but because this is a pseud0 fashion blog, I am talking about what she’s wearing. I am super into her pants look. No mini skirts here! If you didn’t see the live stream you can watch a re-run of it here (on the second channel) in about 20 minutes, otherwise I can just tell you she was wearing high-waisted wide-legged white pants and those Stella FW13 white boots with the massive platform sole and a white crop top/sports bra thing. Also, hair half up. She looked like a Spice Girl. An amazing, modern version of a Spice Girl. 90s but cleaner. So good. 
  5. Speaking of great Coachella moments, I haven’t found a really good video of this yet but Beyonce got on stage with Solange to dance to ‘Losing You’ and there are some average instagram videos of it here.
  6. Oh by the way I booked flights to New York so that is happening. #casual #notcasual

Low(e)s:

  1. I did a really stupid thing and didn’t look properly and got on the wrong train to the airport in Sydney. And when I say wrong train to the airport, I actually mean I got on a train that wasn’t going to the airport at all and once I realised I couldn’t get off to go back until I had reached Ashfield or Ashbury or some suburb way in the completely wrong direction. Not fun.
  2. The person next to me on my flight home had her arm completely leaned on and covering the arm-rest between us, and her feet in that gap between the two seats in front. I already have weird personal space issues so you can imagine how I was feeling.
  3. My grandma had to go into hospital for surgery last week.
  4. I kind of f’d around with my blog and now it looks how it does now and I don’t know why but the comment form has disappeared/broken/wasn’t coded in properly and now you can’t comment on here and I don’t know how to fix it.

Highs: My car is fixed, aka the left side of it isn’t completely fucked. I was in Melbourne on Tuesday and Wednesday! It was pretty whirlwind. I got up at 3:30am and caught a four hour flight to Tullamarine and after some lunch and serious losing the plot from lack of sleep, I got to attend what I was there for in the first place - Mimco’s VAMFF show. Holy moly they put a bit into production over there! The lighting and seating and venue and everything, was super cool. More on this tomorrow. Today I cashed in one of my Christmas presents – a massage at the Chuan Spa at the Langham hotel. I fell asleep half way through which I think is a…

Highs: This remix Ben did, of Watercolours’ ‘Kyoto Train’. I went to a wedding. I wore this Liam dress. Four people told me they loved the dress, and even though I don’t like the number four I still feel good about it because I’m going to be presumptuous and assume they loved the dress because I was wearing it SO WELL. Great foods eaten this week include: the egg fried rice at Spicy House on Dominion Road. (It sounds boring but I swear it’s the best egg fried rice I’ve ever eaten. I have a sneaking suspicion it’s full of MSG but whatever, it’s delicious.) Also, the BLAT (minus the T, and the relish. I do not like tomatoes and I do not like…

Today my blog turned five years old.

Posted on March 6, 2014

In previous years I have forgotten about March the 6th. I almost forgot about this blog birthday again until someone asked me this morning how long I’d been doing it for. ‘Doing a blog’ is such a weird phrase, it doesn’t sound right. I’m actually kind of annoyed at myself for not putting today in my calendar. If I had I could have organised something as a celebration. I’ve always wanted to chuck a bunch of money into a party and have blog supporters be able to come and eat and drink and dance and take lip-sync selfie videos in a safe environment with no judgement and at no (or very little) financial cost to them. I guess it’ll have to wait ’til next…

Things I’m going to be good at/better at in 2014.

Posted on December 31, 2013

Drinking water. I reckon I currently drink like one glass of water a day, if that. Copious amounts of juice, but hardly any water. Someone at work told me something about how some Victoria’s Secret angel drinks a litre when she wakes up and I feel like I should give it a go. Not the litre, but just more water. Reading books/reading offline. I got two books for Christmas and if I don’t finish those f*ckers by the end of Summer I’ll be so disappointed in myself. Eating less KFC. I had KFC last night, I’m feeling regret, hence this being added to the list. Exercising. I walked up Mount Eden, 100 steps to get up that one side where you enter from off…

Stream of consciousness thoughts, four days before 2014.

Posted on December 27, 2013

I never put up a Christmas post. I had intended to – usually on Christmas day I have a lot of down time. This year was hectic by comparison. I had one of the worst sleeps of all time on Christmas eve night, I think I went to bed around 2:00am and woke up at 5:00am, fell back asleep and then up intermittently ’til I couldn’t handle it anymore at 8:30am. Which reminds me – remember this time last year or the year before when I was having terrible trouble sleeping? Now I’ve gone full circle – I can sleep anywhere at pretty much any time. Weird, right? So anyway, I had an exchange of presents with my boyfriend, and then a present exchange…
