FEELING lazy and rather lethargic of late. On the inside I’m all ideas and full of beans yet my outside facade tells a different tale. I feel like I’m wearing cement blocks for shoes while gravity is attempting to sieve me through the ground. It’s leaving me all out of whack and because of this I don’t feel like doing much these days, hence the photo choice above, which was actually captured a few weeks back on Instagram. I really wasn’t motivated enough for photographing anything remotely creative and considering it was quite an effort to simply scroll through my iPhone for something decent let’s just leave it at that.
WEARING this pair of drop crotch lounge pants from Bonds and a grey tee from Cotton On, similar to this one. Perfectly simples. And perfect for an anticipated day indoors, tackling emails and commanding my brain to action. I have so much work to catch up on it’s just not funny. That said I’m already easily distracted by the cuteness that is my puppy dog Chanel. She’s fast asleep beside me right now, peacefully dreaming away. And in case you were wondering, no Miss Coco is not a morning person. Girl loves to sleep in.
LOVING the new Quil bucket bag by 3.1 Phillip Lim. Oh how I’m feeling this one and I do hope this piece isn’t going to become the next “it” bag that will see fashionistas worldwide rushing to acquire. And considering that the Saint Laurent is slightly out of reach right now, I’m praying only a select few will tote him around; unlike his older sister the Pashli. I am fiercely crushing on this one kids and can’t decide between black or the really cute cut-out version. But I guess in terms of practicality and idiot proof-ness, the classic black would be ideal, considering that I’d most likely lose my shit with the other version. You know, all those itty, bitty round holes make an ideal escape for smaller items like a NARS lipstick or a mini bottle of Coco Mademoiselle or your keys who are constantly seeking some weird kind of liberation from you.
USING nail polish as if my life depended on it. Seriously though, I’ve been going through numerous bottles the past two weeks. I keep changing my nail colour on a daily basis. One day Essie Blanc, the next onto Liquorice and then moving onto OPI’s Cajun Shrimp. I may or may not have a problem with indecisiveness.
LISTENING to Flight Facilities new album. And when I say listening to, I mean this song on constant repeat. I’m kind of obsessed with it right now. Total chill out vibes making it ideal for cooler weather and my lackadaisical state too. These tunes would also be the ideal accompaniment for a road-trip. And speaking of travel…
DREAMING of a European getaway. Or a getaway in general. It’s been far too long since my last adventure, a good few years at that. My soul is restless and really feeling those wanderlust pangs these days so I need to make time for a foray. I was even contemplating a road-trip along the coast, predominantly the western coast of Victoria. I’m picturing a cute cottage nestled high amongst the canopy of leafy trees and with easy access to a sandy beach, preferably right outside the back door. Just a cozy little place to unwind, recharge and make some much needed headway on my novel and all whilst listening to the sound of waves crashing and kissing the shoreline. Places like this exist right?
PLANNING and organising myself. I brought a 2015 diary from Kikki-K with clear intent on scribbling and using those pages. Well at least 90% of them; unlike the previous years frivolousness. Yet I’ve failed to scrawl anything remotely coherent within it’s perfectly designed pages in the last month or so. I’m making a point now to utilise it fully, otherwise, it would be an incredible shame to let them go to waste.
HOPING that March will be kind, eventful and incredibly abundant. Not just for myself but for each and everyone of you.
