Semester One.

Good luck to all returning to University tomorrow, or those back at work for another week of raking in the chips. May your studying be fruitful and your stationery coordinated.

This is what summer looks like.

Not all of these were taken this year (due to very average weather) but this is what summer looks like to me. So much gratitude to God and the weatherman for the last few days - utterly beautiful.

Bring on more sunny weekends!

NYFW rant.

Mother: Amy we have to go we're running late!
Amy (browsing The Collection and Okay, I know that this is just another week for you, but you are clearly not aware that history is being made today! (dramatic emphasis for maximum effect)
Mother: huh?
Amy: It is in fact New York Fashion Week and although I'm well aware that this doesn't impact you in any way, it happens to be an enormous source of information and entertainment for me, and so I will be downstairs in five minutes when I have finished watching Calvin Klein and seeing if Occupy Wall Street are going to make any impact at all!

Quite funny. And although (truth be told) NYFW has no actual impact on my life either, I love seeing what comes up in the collections, and it spins my mind thinking how much in advance designers are! I mean technically (even though winter will be here in a couple of months), these clothes are being shown so that they can be manufactured by November. And worn in December, in the Northern hemisphere.

Now because we're down the bottom of the world and things are the wrong way round, we're supposed to be behind. But I think we're pretty good at sneaking things early, and I'm betting, like in most seasons, we'll see some crazy things pop up this winter from the recently shown collections. I'm hoping so anyway, because nothing makes me smile like some outrageous fashion.

And we all know summer might be the best season, but winter is the most fashionable. There's only so much fashion fun you can have when more than a single layer and/or closed toe shoes make you die of heat. Keep your eyes peeled ladies, I'm looking forward to getting back to uni and doing some serious people watching.

The last two weeks.

These pretty much sum up my last few weeks. Short & sweet while I have a few minutes.

Valentines Day: (despite a valentines tradition of hanging out with my friend Matt, and a fantastic singles dinner hosted by a certain sneaky sneak. Kudos goes to Michelle for her DIVINE red velvet cupcakes!)

Full time work. Overrated and impossible to concentrate sans caffeine. Addicted? Noooooo.

Only way to do it:

Mmmmmmm shoe shopping. . . oh to have a closet like this. 
Oh to actually have places to wear shoes like this!

Enough said.

Love you all, hope your summers are wonderful. If it's winter where you are, my bad. Didn't mean to make you jealous.
