Hi there!!! It’s yours truly logging in now at about 9.59PM on Monday night to blog from my new computer. Yes, that’s right! I’ve got a new computer!!! If you follow me on Twitter, then you’ve probably heard about me whinging about my lagging hand-me-down of a computer, ’twas a over eight year old veteran machine which presented me with great lagging capabilities when over three internet windows were open, took over 5 minutes per action i click on photoshop, froze every few days unexpectedly, probably had a bazillion different spyware/malware/trojans on it and had not only a broken cd/dvd drive, but also a broken USB port and well.. not really the computer’s fault, but also came with a a degenerating monitor which displayed grey/light blue/light pink/anything light as white (oh have i been deceived!). Oh boy, it was some sort of an ancient intel pentium core duo processor with well.. 512mb ram?
Now! Presenting! My new computer. It’s operates with the latest processor and has 8gb worth of ram. That’s pretty much 15 times what i used to have!!! Now when i open photoshop, it loads instantly and i can pretty much open as many internet windows i want and just wow! I can’t believe i don’t even care my bank account is empty..
So anyway, /end new computer happiness rave/ – these strange sort of geometric/aztec patterned trackpants looking harem pants are from my mum. Actually, it’s quite funny how i acquired them. My mum walked out the door to attend what i believe is.. my sister’s parent-teacher interview night and she wore these pants. I looked at them in an expression of ‘i need those in my life!’ and she said ‘oh i was just going to chuck these out’. And before i knew it, i had full ownership rights of those pants. Both to possess, use and enjoy. Yes i study property law. But no we don’t really talk about the law of who owns pants. I wore these pants to tom’s house a couple of weeks ago and when he saw he, he just stared at them with an expression of ‘what are you wearing?!’ I’m pretty sure they are hugely grandma and i’m still not sure how to pull them off but so far, this is how i’ve been wearing them.
My watch is from Breo.com, a lovely UK company that’s recently expanded to Aussie :) This is the style i got and both my sister and tom have fallen in love with it! Actually the funniest thing was that a couple of weeks ago, my sister was telling me about these watches with the ‘jelly’ wristbands and how she likes them, so now we’re sharing :) It’s a lovely hot pink colour which reminds me of the colour blocking trend that’s going around at the moment and will be perfect for my Spring outfits!
Oh and i have one more thing to say. I am in love with the speed of my new computer and you can probably tell by the amount i have typed. Actually that could also be due to the fact that i got a new keyboard which types silently. As opposed to my old keyboard where i had to really bash those keys down to get anything on my screen. Not to mention that my lag-free machine now enables me greater flexibility to play around with the editing of my photos which you will see soon!

Romwe gifted scallop blouse, american print shorts and leather embroidered bag c/o Chicwish, voodoo tights, Sportsgirl socks, Urban Outfitters boots
As the weather starts to warm up, i have suddenly found myself longing for the spring/summer season ahead. All this inspiration from the northern hemisphere is really getting my excited for some hopefully mild temperature summer days. Of course, i’m not at all interested in those sticky 40 C plus days.. those ones are ..bad. Anyway i’ve been thinking about what i’d like to be wearing this summer and i’m getting all excited about buying cropped tops to wear with high waisted skirts/shorts/pants! I don’t know but the silhouette of such an outfit really appeals to me, after spending many of my days with tops tucked into my high waisted bottoms :)
I’m wearing my tassel suede bag again and a some blue american print shorts, topped off with a candy pink scalloped t-shirt which was snapped on a day that was fortunately sunny and 20something degrees. Funnily enough, i really wanted to wear these shorts again today with a vintage koala jumper i had. But then i thought about it.. koala jumper = Australia. american shorts = America. That sounds like a rather strange combination so i didn’t haha.
i’ve got another sweet giveaway lined up hopefully coming soon. I’m sort of waiting to hit 3000 Google followers as well so i can celebrate together. Stay tuned! ♡

Lisa Mitchell: Sun Sun Sun
bowler hat, tshirt & backpack c/o Romwe, ASOS leopard belt, vintage purple shorts, Voodoo tights, Sportsgirl socks, vintage boots
My bad! It’s been a little longer than 24 hours but i just got home so.. i’m excused :D I wore this outfit last week to uni and Tom snapped these pics for me! It’s probably the fifth time or something that he’s used my dslr and i’m really happy with how they turned out :) We were blessed with great lighting on the day as well.
My brown leather boots realllly need a polish. The heels are pretty much worn out now, i’ve had them for almost three years now, and being vintage boots i am thoroughly surprised and happy about how much trauma they have gone through. They have lasted so so long and i’m extremely happy but i think they’re going to fall apart soon :(
I guess this is the type of outfit i have been going for when dressing for uni. Shorts/skirts + top + chunky cardigan. Actually the day i wore this it was some 20 degrees.. today, being 16 of course, i doubled up on the cardigans. Oh and you can’t tell, but i have a long sleeve under my t-shirt :) Sneaky layering huh!
I’ve been trialling this backpack for uni over the last couple of weeks and i’ve got to say that it is one of the most functional bags i’ve ever owned (that is big enough for uni). And my statement is based on the side pocket on the right which i put my metcard in, making it super handy to take it out and up it back in when i take the bus to uni. I take two buses to get to uni so i have to pretty much take my metcard out and put it back in at least.. *counts* four times per trip! Anyway i always carry quite a bit to uni so i get paranoid that the strap will break off but so far.. so good.
