this image is me right this very moment. in a nutshell.

missing in action

So I've been out of the blogging game for quite a while now. Call it a hiatus or whatever. I call it pure laziness. I fail epically at keeping this blog updated. Blah.
I figure considering it's 3am Sydney time, I might as well kickstart my return to the blogging universe. Insomniac much?


where dreams are made of



miss you big city
belleza a un latido del corazon


return of the mack

sweet happenings which have taken me away

so no excuses. i said i was back, but really i wasn't.
this is take 2.
i totally blame time.
i have been overcome by time deprivation. sleep deprivation. blog deprivation.

i am incredibly sorry for not getting back to all your replies. i will most definitely devote some time to catch up/visit and read all of your sites/blogs.
you all are very very sweet!

here's hoping you all had a wonderful merry filled xmas spent with all those you love :)
xmas this yr for me was a quiet one.
most my immediate family were overseas on vacation, so it was quite a non event.
nonetheless it was spent with the one i love and with great company.
kinda glad we didn't go all out this year, i think i've more than made up for my share of gluttony this year.

so what else have i been up to?

dining, wining, friends, bday

cannot complain.

i could however, really do with a vacation.

i hear the words 'burning' and 'out' fast approaching.

btw: i hope you all have a wicked NEW YEAR!
wishing all of u the best. here's to another yr!
bring on 2010 :-)

left for dead

i'm alive. i'm kicking. i'm incredibly sorry i haven't replied to you darlings.
i seriously hope you all enjoyed the merry season! :-)
i have a whole lotta shit to catch up on...


we're halfway there

Market loving & NZ treats.

To say it was a gorgeous day in Sydney today, would be an understatement.
I could not pass on the opportunity to go out to the markets to get my gozeleme fix and relish in the market atmosphere.
I forget at times how pretty this city is.
Sometimes, when you're so busy holed up indoors you almost forget what being outdoors feels like.
I have to say this though. What in the bloody hell is up with some of the prices being sold at the markets?!
Shit on a stick. I'm so used to the cheap thrills of my op-shop finds, that it boggles my mind to see 'second-hand' gear being sold for a ridiculous amount.
Ripped up tshirts, which uh i think anyone can do,was being sold for $30 and up. Damn.
I'm in the wrong business.
Nevertheless, amidst all the excessively priced goodies, I still managed to come away with some sweet finds. Mainly singlets/breezy tops (albeit, all predominantly grey)
Oh and I almost forgot, Happy halloween everyone!
I wish I was going to some halloween costume party, but alas, I am not. No time for play, when you have work. Boohoo.
To make up for our non-halloween night, the love and I picked up some treats from this fantastic candy store we love in glebe!
I can't say I've really got a sweet tooth, but I did manage to score some 'sweet' finds for my fave kiwi :)
p.s thankyou allegra for the award! you're soo sweet! ;-) wow. my first 'blog' award. hehe.


there'll be no darkness tonight

Be right back

I promise!


Run away from all your boredom Run away from all your whoredom and wave

So evil. So sick.

I wish I could say that I'd just come back from the most amazing vacation, or that I had been working on some top secret assignment which i would later reveal to you all, and that's why I have not been updating.
But the truth is, I've just been so tired. (who isnt, these days eh?)
There have been days where I have felt completely lazy and completely unmotivated to even turn on my laptop. It's seriously gone as far as me having to resort to using my phone to browse the worldwideweb. (Ah...thank goodness for modern technological advances! :)) My partner had actually begun to worry that I had broken my laptop, (Quelle, shock, horreur!).
Boring as it may sound, but Work, and being ill for a little while are probably the main culprits which have prevented me from updating this, as well as the fact that my social life at the moment = nada. haha. Ok I lie. It probably equates to 'tepid' on the scale of cold to ON FIRE! So that limits the amount of topics I can rave on about.

I can't complain. All the free time I've managed to conjure up has really consisted of time spent with my partner in crime (who made the edible, i mean delectable french toast and egg combo in the first pic above), homeware shopping, decorating, op-shopping (yay to more faux fur coat finds!), buying books, books, magazines and more books, reading, and basically just chilling out watching dvds and vegging out at our lovely abode.

The last 2 weekends have been lovely though. If only I had the common sense to document it on camera. ha.
Dinners, yum cha/chocolate lunches, wigs and skeleton pens! Oooh yeah.

Halloween is coming up, and although this holiday is typically associated with our North American counterparts, we Aussies (or should I say, discount stores Australia wide) have taken it on board with much gusto. Ok, so maybe that was a slight exaggeration :/
But I have seen people, I mean, little kids in the past go 'trick or treating' during halloween. Albeit wearing regular clothes, but nonetheless 'trick or treating' around the neighbourhood! (I'm pretty sure, that the trick part would have outweighed the treat part! Unfortunately :/)

So going back to skeleton pens. Don't you just love it?! (see above pics)
Lily and I both have one (courtesy of the sweet partner and aforementioned discount store)
I'm pretty sure there'll be lots of time spent prodding and lighting our pens eyes away with these bad boys.

Yes. The simple pleasures we have in life.
