It's nothing glamorous or slightly adventurous being that I need to keep to an all black colour palette, though the accompaniment of a duster and my The Fifth watch does make me feel slightly more stylish and less like a frumpy merchandiser.

 READING  Crazy Rich Asians. Still. Unbelievably I am yet to make much headway with this book. Not because I don't like in, in fact I really adore this novel, it's just that I can't seem to find time lately for anything much more than work. And reading is something that I miss and yearn to do more of. Especially considering how cooler the days have become.

 LOVING  all this dreamy chilly weather hitting Melbourne Town. The days are beyond crisp with hints of sunshine. If only I could take advantage of those arctic mornings and stay in bed that while longer. And speaking of, those mornings do leave little to be desired with nuisance frost enveloping my vehicle, which has always been parked in a garage and now I've been forced to keep him out in the driveway. I honestly can not cope with this new ritual of battling frosty icicles, condensation and frozen fingers. How does everyone else in my street manage?

 EATING  Nutella donuts; warm and oozing with gooey hazelnut goodness. Oh God I can't get enough of them lately. And I project those cravings onto everyone else around me. Just ask my friend Liz. For the sake of waistlines everywhere, it's best to keep well away from me.

 OBSESSED  with online shopping. I've done some serious damage and I can't find the will to cease, despite my accounts serious cries of pain. I've felt unnecessarily compelled to spring clean and restock Le Wardrobe. New pieces to join the party include these Tom Ford Anouska's and a Status Anxiety wallet both pictured above. I finally said adieu to my beloved Gucci tri-fold, one I've had in use for nearly a decade and sadly I'm not entirely sold on my new wallet. I am a devoted tri-fold lover and this is no tri-fold, which was my main reason for not updating it in the first place. This style seems to be a rarity and I just can't with those other designs, the kind the market seems to be over inflated with. Where have all these wallets gone? Of course since acquiring and upgrading to this one, all I note is tri-fold wallet. Why Universe, why?

 USING  YSL Rouge Pur Couture, No 10 more and more. I don't usually wear lipstick because I kind of like a naked lip on me, and I don't usually wear it to work because it's too much maintenance since I'm out on the road all day. But this one isn't too bad, it's long wearing and doesn't bleed.


 LISTENING  to Justin Timberlake's Future Sex Love Sounds. An oldie but such a goodie.

 WATCHING  You who came from the stars. Rowena from Rolala Loves and Emmy Lou from Scarberian Fashion Lover have got me hooked onto Korean dramas! It's started with Descendants of the Sun and now I'm moving onto this series. It's about an Alien living on Earth for 400 years is set to return home just as he finds the girl he fell in love with here on Earth back when he first arrived. I'm halfway through the series now, so girls if you want to give me a list of other dramas to watch then let me know! This may be contributing to my lack of reading time. Hashtag, sorry, not sorry.

  14. It took me ages to get through Crazy Rich Asians but I was finally able read it during jury duty last year. So good! You need to read the sequel China Rich Girlfriend too when you get a chance. LOL I feel you on the time suck of K-dramas. I just recommended a bunch to Emmy awhile back. She's watching My Girlfriend is a Gumiho right now and enjoying it. What genres do you like best?

  33. Oh I love crisp weather but we are heading in to 3H territory here in NY...hazy, hot and humid. Ugh Funny I order a jumpsuit from ASOS in black of course. But I did not have a good experience with them, as the state was missing from the address. Their software does not auto fill the state in when you add the zip and it also does not catch errors so the shipment was returned to sender. Then you can not email them you have to tweet and then they would not resend after the address was corrected and now I have to wait a year and a day for a refund. So not sure if I will order from them again, but the jumpsuit was super cute :(

  34. I love Crazy Rich Asians. I'm Asian and I could really relate to the story. It's brutally honest and shows the side of Asia that the western countries is not kinda aware yet. Most people think we're all kind of those people in "Eat Pray Love" novel. I can't wait to read it's sequel China Rich Girlfriend :)
