and so this is Christmas...

I'm devo... Christmas is over! 

Sunday 23rd we all went to our Grandma's place for Christmas lunch. Its the good old tradition fare, from turkey, ham, cheesy cauliflour to trifle, fruit salad, pav and pudding. I was proud of myself, I didn't go too crazy with the food. I viewed this as my stomach starter... as I had two massive days to follow. 

My cousins have had their own children now, so it was so much fun watching them tear open their presents.... and their responses with "wowww mum look at this!!!" ... how good were those days just totally oblivious to the Christmas stress! 

Christmas Eve I woke with the worst hayfever ever! I looked ridiculous with my puffy eyes and nasily voice hehe I hoped that the telefast kicked in so I looked half okay for our Polish Christmas. After rushing around all day, and having a quick nap I was ready for the night ahead. It was good to see my brothers and their gf's all in the one place - we are all so busy these days, we never get a chance to catch up and have a laugh. As you would know from my previous post, Babcia and I had done a lot of prep for the night ahead.. so it was good to see the final product getting eaten (and no complaints). 

Presents were exchanged and I got my favourite Lychee candle, yipee! Great timing as I've used mine all up. My cousin is awesome, she got me this decorative tree. My cousin said she remembered how much I loved my aunties xmas tree from last year so here is my own little wooden version.. perfectos for apartment living (unlike my 6 footer haha). 

We all hung out at babcia's for hours joking and talking rubbish before everyone left, exhausted, as we were about to back this up for Christmas day lunch! 

Christmas Day and my brother woke me up ... he was ready to open the pressies together before he left for the coast with his girlfriend. I got a perfume I'd have my eye on for ages... Thanks Santa! 

As one brother left, another one arrived, and off we went to my aunties for more awesome food. We were well and truly done by the end of the day, all laying on the couches like we've run a marathon (aka food coma). 

I ended up spending boxing day and today in geelong, relaxing, watching trashy jersey shore repeats and movies. Its funny how being at mum and dad's is always home, no matter where you actually live! 

I have had a look through instagram today, and was shocked to see the present hauls people received (as in adults, not children). People really do go all out! Or do we (my family) not really get into the pressie exchanging enough? Your thoughts..

Before I forget I got a few things I wanted to try while I did a last minute Christmas shop last Saturday. 

I tried this... I like it but just not dark enough. If i had a undercoat of something and then the bronzer on the top I'd be happy. But not bad for $9.95! 

Okay so I got this tacky grape scented polish from Sportsgirl for $7.95.. Turns out I love it! The colour is awesome for a cheapy. Unfortunately even with a good quality top coat it doesn't really last.. had to reapply after 2 days. I really loved it against my black David Lawrence dress so can't complain. and yes it does have a scent... although more bubblegum than grape! 

Anywho, hope your Christmas was awesome!... What did you do? Is anyone away on holidays? I don't think I've done a proper xmas holiday is years...

Holidays are here! YIPEEEEEEE


The holidays are finally here... I don't have much time off, will be back at work on the 3rd Jan - but a little time is better than none at all! I want to save my leave as much as I can for a proper holiday. 

I have been struggling this week... just so damn tired! Last night I thought I'd get in the Christmas cheer and do my nails Christmas style... 

I ended up taking this off... hate it! That red just doesn't do it for me! 

I then put on this... what I thought was a red with a pink through it... but clearly I couldn't get away with the red argument at work, everyone agreed it was pink! ahh well.. what can you do! I'm loving the nude colours lately. When I'm feeling a colour, I should just run with it, I just end up wasting time taking polish on and off. My nails need a good shaping to be honest. I have been quite lazy of late.

We got these hampers from our bosses' today! Horray! Love the double bottles of wine... 

I got these little goodies from buddies at work as well...

Shortbreads in this cute tin! I love it! 

And a little bag of lindt chocolates.... one of my FAVOURITES! hehe

Can't wait to relax for a few days ... What are your plans over the Christmas break? I love to know what everyone is up to!

Hit me with the Tan


I dunno about you, but this year has killed me with expenses! So I'm on the hunt for cheaper alternatives to my usual make up routine. As we are getting into summer, I love to smother myself in fake tan. I could even be that orange girl you maybe laugh at! However I rather be orange that have my white skin reflect the sun off it haha I know i'm tragic! Anyway my point is I want some budget friendly options for tanning. So I thought I'd trial out a few I saw in Safeway when I was supposed to be shopping for dinner.... 

This Garnier Self tanning mousse I found rather messy to apply. I really needed a mitt, and the colour was so not dark enough for the effort I put in applying it. I think I would have to get to three applications to get near the colour I would want. I'm a terrible reviewer as I can't remember the price of this exactly (or any of the products really)- but I'm pretty sure it was around $11 as I picked it up on sale. 

This is my favourite self tanning product. I like to apply at night before bed to wake up with a glowing tan. It goes on like moisturiser, and is pretty forgiving in the sense that I slap it on and rub it in pretty roughly and it ends up generally pretty even. It costs around $10-$12 but I like to always have this on back up. 

Quite obviously I have a thing for Garnier products.... But this partiular one is not a winner as far as I'm concerned. The gel like consistency feels odd on your legs, and takes ages to sink in. The colour you get from it can often be streaky and not that dark. I have however heard some girls loving it.. Maybe its my lazy application that is not working for me! This costs a little more than the self tanning milk, but if you have the choice, go the milk! 

Okay so you have a party to go to which has totally crept up on you... which means you look like you haven't seen the sun all winter. This could be your emergency solution! Its literally a spray on make up and has a great colour! but don't be wearing it if you expect rain in the forecast - it will just run off you! classy look huh! This is for around $25ish dollars, good to have in the cupboard as a backup! However I highly recommend applying this OUTSIDE or this could happen.... 

This is picture was given to me by Pani! Disgusting hell yes!!! Thank goodness its easy to remove! Seriously it looks like a crime scene its so horrid! 

I have heard great things about Sportsgirls' tanning lotion - I am still yet to try it! 

So what tanning products do you use? Clearly I have some obsession about Garnier products.. I really need to venture out!

Christmas preparations and celebrations

Hey guys! 

Friday was our work Christmas party ... my plan was as follows, cab to train station in morning, train to work, get ready for party at work and take a cab home at nights end. Unfortunately my plan turned out to be waiting for a cab for 45mins in the drizzle humid weather - my freshly washed hair officially reached boof status in 10mins. I was NOT happy! After a train and tram ride I got to work at 10:15 - I should of been there by 8:45... Let me tell you I was cranky and looking rather dishevelled haha 

This is me pointing out the obvious fact my hair is not straight! Ignoring that part (and the fact I have no make up on at this point) I wore my new David Lawrence dress as well as my neutral tony bianco pumps which have faired well for me! 

The party was at One Fitzroy Street in StKilda.. was a great spot as we had lots of bars around us for a longer night out if we wanted. Turns out most piked it by midnight - I think the weather really knocked everyone around a bit. Nevertheless a good time had by all! My KK was awesome though, I got this little four pack... someone knows me a little too well! 

Can't wait to crack open these sparkling moscatos! :)

I was majorly drained by the end of the night, but Mez was kind enough to drive me home... especially because its so out of her way! Honestly I was relived by this, the thought of waiting for a cab would make me go insane! 

Saturday I had the best sleep in! I really could of sleept all weekend, but I had to get up and get things done before Sunday as I was off to Geelong. 

I am determined to learn the polish traditional cooking for in the future. I spent all Sunday with Babcia cooking mountains of Perogie. If you don't know what they are basically can be described as our version of dumpling... or as I like to call them, giant tortellini! Perogies can be meat filled, vegetable filled - usually potato, or even filled with berries as a dessert. Babcia and I made over 200 of them... meat filled with her special recipe. I think every family has their own version! Anyway these are the results.... 

These little ones go in our traditional mushroom soup

This was the start of our first batch... this went on for hours! 

We celebrate Vagilia which is on Christmas Eve and we make these especially for it- although this is just for starters... not to mention babcia's famous cabbage rolls and fish starters. Makes me feel full just thinking about it!

After all this cooking, I got home and ended up making a huge batch of truffles for people at work on Sunday night. Usually I make lolly bags, but I thought truffles are always a winner! 

By the time I got back to Melbourne I was so damn tired, and glad for a good nights sleep. I feel like I've been trying to catch up all week! 

What are your Christmas traditions? I wonder if I have any polish readers that also celebrate Vagilia......or something similar?

Looking Forward......

I've been in a odd kind of mood lately... and I think its because I'm trudging through life without any real goals. And goals are so important - you always need something to work towards, we all need some sort of purpose. 

This upcoming new year I want to get started on setting some proper goals and actually working towards them ... from now even! I remember in primary school writing letters to ourselves which we would write at the start of the year, and open at the end. I want to do this again! I want to ponder on this for the next few weeks and see what I can come up with - not off the cuff goals like go out more and eat less ice cream! 

Meanwhile this afternoon I met up with my two good friends for coffee at The Boat House. When we got there around 5pm and it was 37 degrees and we all looked drained before we even got chatting! Pretty soon the weather turned, and it was cold! Melbourne weather is so cray cray! Anyway we were talking about NYE and we all agreed that Riva is the way to go! Sounds like it should be fun.. esp having a group of us going! I went and got the tickets right away for Pani and myself - not taking the risk of waiting until payday to get them! Pani and I have learnt the hard way that getting NYE tickets is a nightmare last minute. So hopefully it will be a good night.. sneaky sound system will be there and Grant Smillie... and some other random people I haven't heard of! 

I was in Geelong last weekend to see family and organise Christmas cooking days (yes I am that ethnic that we have to block days for cooking food haha). I took mum out to lunch and then we went looking through the shops. There were so many good buys... I bought this cute dress from David Lawrence for my work Xmas party. Its a classic cut, so I figure I can wear it to both my mum and dad's side of the family for Xmas ... yes I'm being that thrifty with my purchases haha 

I was lucky enough to also get 20% off which made my day! I think they have great classic dresses, I just noticed they are having buy two, get the 3rd free. If I have a few hunderd to spare, I would def take this up!!! Click here if you are interested

We also ventured to Witchery and I go these cute earrings ... I thought they would go perfect with the dress...

Again I got to the counter and they were $29.95! If your haven't signed up as a Witchery member, I would def recommend you did. They have some awesome offers ... over the Christmas period they have been having the 12 days of Christmas sale... so many good deals to be had! 

Sometimes I forget my mum is in here mid 50s.. she bought this really cute Basque structured dress from Myer and these cute heels from Witchery. She also saw this adorable box clutch, which I must say I wouldn't mind myself, but I think she might get that from Santa (i.e. me) 

I would really like to test myself and see how long I can manage imposing a non useless spending rule. I am a terrible impulse shopper (earrings in this post prime example). I shouldn't really put a rule on this, just another rule I'll end up breaking haha 

I got a few instant tans I want to give a whirl this week... downside = back tanning. If you don't have someone around is it even possible to get your back done? Common girls, tell me your fake tanning secrets!

Its Christmas time!!!!

Heya Prowlers! 

I am the worst blogger ever! I know I know! 

BUT I'M BACK! with an attempt to be a good little blogger hehe

Is it just me, or has Christmas come around ultra fast! I'm determined to get into the Christmas spirit this year ... My year hasn't exactly gone to plan so I want to make an attempt of a great Xmas and New year! I love my optimism about New Year... however its often quite the let down...  My last 3 New years have been at Docklands and every event I've been to has just been crap! I'm still haunted by my experience at the Watermark... they ripped us off, and had hardly any bar staff to cater for everyone and therefore impossible to get a drink - not to mention a dud crowd. We did another event at a place I can't quite remember the name, but it was another horrid night. Bogan central! One of the better nights was H2O... but still wasn't thrilled by it either. I was speaking to Mez today and we both agree Docklands is where fun goes to die! But I'll keep you posted on what I decide to do! 

Anyway more importantly back to CHRISTMAS!.... Last week I thought its about time I got myself a Christmas tree. I just decided on a fakey... especially since I'm solo and carting that little baby up to my floor of the block didn't sound like my idea of fun! I got this giant 6 footer for $27 from Big W! Can you believe how cheap! I texted my dad to tell him I got it from there where he replied with "I can't believe you shopped at BigW"... (He thinks i'm a brand snob, I proved him wrong huh!). I also got the lights and star from there too... seriously that place is the bomb for Christmas decos at el-cheapo prices! 


I must admit I did buy some gorgeous Christmas ornaments from Myer before my venture to BigW. I love them all, and they had 30% off so its hard to say no really! I could say no to the hyperactive children running around the decorations section of Myer. Look I know I don't have children and I am sounding like the Christmas grinch, but as I pondered at my lighting choices, some kid ran over, fell to the floor and whacked my legs and was looking up at me like I'm the weirdo. His mum didn't say anything .. I thought it was odd .. is it okay to let random kids just hit you on the legs while your minding your own business? Hence the reason I ran off to BigW ... I shouldn't be such a kid hater, to be honest majority of the kids were pretty cute, amazed by all the Christmas trinkets to choose from!

I didn't think through my shopping as I had to carry a Xmas tree and bags of random decos etc back to the car on a very busy Sunday afternoon! Dumb decision... I was grumpy and irritable by the end.... but my mood quickly changed once I got home and started putting up the tree! 

I love these glass ornaments ... my brothers would always break them when we were little! Myer had so many of them I was like a kid in a candy store! 

I posted this on Insta (kitty1983) ... my Camera skills are terrible! 

Anyway so I'm happy I feel quite festive with my tree up... now to accumulate a few presents to sit underneath! 

I got some great little gifts from Myer today! Myer has a awesome section of stocking fillers and gift packs in the back left hand corner of the store on ground level (Myer Melbourne City store). 

This candle smells AMAZING! I'm not sure if its soy or anything fancy but the scent alone is a winner. 

These MOR packs are so cute! They even include a mini candle! 

What are your fail safe Xmas stocking fillers? I feel like i'm giving the same old thing!

Stakes Day Race Day

Heya guys!
Hope you all had a great weekend!

Now I must say anyone who knows me would be well aware that I love my Saturday morning sleep ins and to get me up before 10am better be worth it! I found myself up at 6:30am knowing Mez will be at my place nice and early to get me to the races! We were off to stakes day, and we had to be there by 9am as Mez is part of our work social club, and had to deliver all the delicious goodies and help set up.

After mucking around with my makeup for ages, I thought I’d take a picture before I got messy by the end of the day! I love my headband with flowers on it, was so cute. I just don’t think the big fascinators suit me, I think any attraction to making me look bigger is a No No hehe.

We were located in the Nursery and had a few allocated car parks where the social club had set up with big umbrellas, tables of snacks and lots of alcohol on ice! Mez and I dumped the food and went to park the car … it was like a lego maze to get out of the damn car park, it took some skill but we made it!

We cracked open the champagne at 10:30... drinking before midday… yes its true! What can I say, the weather was fantastic and the drinks were going down way to easy . Before I knew it I was talking dribble, and Mez made me drink a flute of water before I continued with my day. She did have a point, but who wants to waste valuable stomach room on water!

I thought it was great to see all the girls dressed up and the guys in their suits! Such effort made by all! I wish people would make the same effort on a night out. For example, whats with guys and their crappy $20 slip ons. They should have a blanket ban, they are hideous and should only be worn by old men!

Mez had enough in the early afternoon, which was fair enough to, who wants to be sober while everyone else is having fun! I did however find some girls who had quite as many drinks as me which made placing bets extremely amusing! I wasn’t fairing too well in the betting department until I spoke to these girls, I made my money back plus more.. YIPEE!
There were some interesting behaviours near the end of the day! The people in the car park behind us started packing up and randomly left a platter of cheese on the ground when they left.  I was talking to one of the guys at work and we noticed some random chick just came along and started pecking at the cheese on the platter, nibbling away, and then went on her merry way hahaha What the heck!  

Another girl from work was sitting around all day drinking, and when she finally got up she toppled over into a bunch of chairs and on top of people! HILARIOUS! I usually don’t laugh at stuff like that but she was acting like it was quite normal behaviour lol… good times! Hrm clearly what seems funny at the time doesn’t sound quite so funny when typed out here…. Lol maybe cause its work people it makes it a bit more amusing for me!
Before I knew it, it was 7:30 and time to go home. One of the girls from work dropped me home which was excellent as I pretty much dumped Mez for grog haha. Anyway within 30mins the night turned ugly and I was sick, VERY SICK! I put myself to bed at 10! Clearly drinking all day in the sun is great at the time, but can have horrid consequences.  I was invited to a hens that night but declined, and as I suspected, there was no way I could of gone on all night! I clearly don’t know the concept of pacing myself!
Sunday I ended up feeling sorry for myself for most of the morning, until I perked up by the afternoon.. thank goodness!

Have you been to the races? We did not manage to venture to the general admin, which makes me wonder what its like? I feel like I’d love to dress up in a really expensive outfit and enter some sort of competition on race day! Lame I know, but I love gorgeous clothes! Maybe next year I guess….

Results of Melbourne Cup Shop Day ....

Heya guys...

Can I just start out by saying after getting pressured into the sweep at work I ended up $75 up! Woo Hoo! Thats my Stakes Day Betting money in check! 

So as you probably read last post I was on a mission on cup day to find my stakes day outfit. Originally I had my eyes set on a particular black lace David Lawrence dress but funnily enough, out of stock! 

I actually ended up trying on heaps of dresses and I had major problems being hemline and many of the colours out there actually did not suit my skin tone and made me look old.... If I see yellow I need to walk away. It just doesn't work. oh and mint green... makes me look old! 

Anyway I was starting to loose patience but I pulled myself together walked into DJ's and decided to just take my time and rummage through every possible rack....

but Horrah! I found something!....

Dress - Table Eight $229.99

Seriously my 'normal' face always looks so angry. I think at this point I'm concerned with the fact that I need need to waste more time (and money) at the shops in the undergarment department to purchase underwear that hikes up to my chest to flatten my stomach lol ....But that said I still bought! 

I ventured to Myer as they had a discount on all millinery .. generally hats don't suit me so I was looking for a clip, headband type thing. 

I tried this on for size... Not for me, as you can tell by the unhappy look on my face...

Triple Flowers on Headband $59.95 
(plus 25% off and a $20 gift card = $24.96 cheap!)

Second one I tried... and we have a winner! I think its pretty cute even if I do say so myself! 

On my way home I thought I would detour to Sydney Road for True Blue Shoes. They have the best sale on at the moment. One pair or shoes for $70 or two pairs for $100! And because I love Tony Bianco its absolute heaven for me! I think most of my shoes are from there! Anyway I found a pair of black pumps but they ran out of my size... I guess it wasn't  to be :(

I took this at home... I really need to master the full body photo... you can hardly see me! I have on my mimco black pumps but I kept thinking about the peep toes I saw at True Blue shoes on Sydney road. 

So here are some more random pictures if your interested....

So you can see the headband properly....

From the Front....

And the back....

As I stewed over not buying the shoes from True Blue I thought I'd have a quick look at the peep toe website. I found these gorgeous things for $49.95! and only my size left! (40 - 9.5) I had to buy! But I think I maybe pushing it to get them by Saturday. Ah well I'm sure I'll find another event to wear them to! 

I have a black Fiorelli clutch which I have had for years! I love it so much.... and I think my outfit is complete with it ... except for the fake tan! 

So I kind of detoured from the full elegant look I wanted to go for... but ah well... Hopefully it all comes together on the day! 

So what do you guys honestly think? Yay or nah? xxx

Feels like a long weekend... but not quite

Heya Prowlers! 

Its the beginning of November and that means Melbourne Cup weekend! ....which marks our first public holiday in what is the longest stretch of the year without one! and it couldn't come soon enough! 

I don't really have any interested in the Melbourne Cup but I did draw out the favourite in our cup sweep at work. We'll see if I have any luck! My boss pressured me into putting my name into the sweep... If I win I def will be thanking him!

While we're talking races I'm going to Stakes Day this Saturday and I'm pretty excited! I've never been to the races before (well I went to the country races but thats not included), but I'm liking the idea of getting dressed up and drinking most of the day (without sounding like an alco). I plan to hit the shops tomorrow to find a dress (yes I left this a bit late)... but I think I will go classic. I really like this David Lawrence black lace dress. Yes I have a thing for David Lawrence. I used to think its totally for my mum but there are some really beautiful classic dresses that I can't help but like! 

David Lawrence - Sleeveless Lace Lady Dress with Grosgrain Trim $229 

Last Friday after work I thought I'd attempt to dress shop at Highpoint after work. Far out all the dresses are so short! A lot of you lovely ladies can get away with this, but at the moment I cannot! (even thought I still try to as you will see below). So as I gave up on the races dress shopping ... I did find these two at Sportsgirl. Note my poor photography and the lack of showing the detail of the dresses... but hopefully you get the idea! 

Love this dress... and I'm never really into the Midi length. I should take better photos.

Printed Floaty Day Dress $48.95 (Damn it I paid $69.95 ripped off!)
As you can see this is rather short, and its got the whole Hi - Lo thing going on, which is good at the back for me! I have it on now. So comfy! 

So Pani came to visit on Saturday night... and we ventured to Dan Murphy's for a decent stash of Moscato. 

I had to have this Moscato, I mean how cute are the bottles! 

Pani in charge of our stash! Can I just say the guy at Dan Murphy's was so helpful.. although he did recommend a $4 bottle which made me laugh.. what the hell! Did we look like cheap drunks?! 

Anyway so we got home and realised, as the weather was hot, that all we needed for dinner was oysters and wine. We always go to Esca Grill.. Why you say! because its so damn good! We wanted to try something new, but I have no idea about any good seafood restaurants, and whatever we googled sounded so dodgy! So Esca Grill it was... 

Oysters kilpatrick are the bomb! You non oyster eaters get on this! 

No flash.. good one Pani! haha

Esca Grill have this awesome Moscato on their wine list, but Dan Murphy's doesn't have it which surprises me. Anyway its by Montevecchio ... if you love sweet wine, you'll love it! 

I couldn't be bothered dealing with drunken idiots on Saturday night so we didn't last long! But next Sat I'll probably be one of them.. haha

On Sunday Mez and I went to visit Jkats and a few other for a BBQ. It was great to catch up... I think I held a child for the longest in my life. I don't quite know what to do! I think I do like kids, but I don't know how to act around them. I'm quite pathetic like that! I guess I'll get used to it with a few of my friends with children running around! 

I made the bestest dinner tonight! Mussels with White Wine and Garlic. THE BOMB! Healthiest dinner, and delicious. I have a thing for seafood. 

I nearly cried today when Mez told me about her wedding dress disaster,  I can't handle people crying, it just makes me cry. Then I appear heartless as I run off from the situation because I don't want to end up full sobbing. I'm hopeless like that! I told her that the memories can't be taken, and that she looked amazingly beautiful in the dress, but in all honesty I'm kind of heart broken for her. There was so much effort that went into that dress.. not only was it sentimental because of the memories of the special day but Mez created that design herself....its got that extra bit of love put into it hehe. I'm glad she had that day to rock the most beautiful dress I've seen!  

I shall post soon re: possible dress for races! If you have any recommendations for dresses that suit what I'm looking for def let me know! 

Hope you have a great Melbourne Cup day.. and maybe even pick a winner!

Hi All!!! 

I have been a horrible blogger of late! 

All I have been doing is being locked up in my apartment studying and eating. These two are a terrible combo! 

Friday was my exam and I have never felt so sick after a exam before... I studied so bloody hard and I thought I would of walked out feeling so good about it! I am really worried about it and trying to distract myself from thinking about it. So I plan to distract myself from stewing about it as much as possible! 

So apart from the exam little much has been happening... But i'll try to fill you in anyway...

A few weeks ago we had a lunch and drinks thing for work... I love this picture of myself (how vain do I sound haha) except for the massive bags under my eyes! Awful! 

My forever new necklace broke but one of the guys at work fixed it for me! Horray... Thats the thing with junk jewelry, not exactly durable. 

I also wore this OPI polish - Coney Island Cotton Candy! I originally bought it for my mum, but actually thought it would make her look washed out so I kept it myself. Loving it! One of the best neutrals I have! (The pink pedal faster suzi has a bit of shimmer in it, and I'm not 100% on it.. )

And what I wore, Forever new jacket and necklace, Basque black peplum top, and bettina liano jeans. 

Anyway the point is that we literally drank and ate allll day, and when it got to 5pm mez and I were done! I didn't even have energy to keep a conversation up. Although I had this random impulse to go to the shops after... which I did, and suddenly it hit me to just go home and I ran to the closest taxi and went home... It was such a weird afternoon. 

Mez guilt tripped me into going to the races in a few weeks with work... stakes day i think?? I have never been to the races... well once, to the country races, but that doesn't count! I am kinda excited to get dressed up but I feel like I've left my options to the last minute. I found some good dresses online, but I don't know what to do ... risk buying and not knowing the size or just try on stuff here and know it will be fine. 

Online shopping is quite tricking in that regard... quite obviously I am on the 'bigger' side so finding clothes can be a bit of a challenge for my body shape. Things will fit my hips but not my top, and visa versa depending on the cut. Sometimes I wish I had my own stylist... my own body shape confuses me! haha My chest is a major issue... they are huge at the moment! lol and its not a good thing! It makes clothes look ridiculous,... ahh well!  I guess I am a little delusional and still think I have the same body as I did a few years ago ahahha just silly... but anyway I'm sure I'll find a dress I love! 

This weekend wasn't mega exciting ... although Pani did come to visit. It reminds me that we have to start planning what we want to do for new years. We have no idea what to do! We have had several new years eve's at the Docklands but they have been really terrible. Dodgy crowds, disappointing venues. We were thinking of maybe getting a hotel room somewhere .... See what happening in Stkilda or something. Maybe riva? Not actually sure what is happening. We don't want to leave our options to the last minute like always ... really limits your choices! Do you guys have any ideas? 

Will try and keep more up to date.. Hope you all had a great weekend!!! :)
