Red and pink, oh my!

This picture has made me withdraw anything I have ever said about wearing pink and red together. Contributing further to my colour blocking obsession, is this outfit from Sportmax S/S 11.

That said, I still live by the rule my mother taught me "blue and green should never be seen without a colour in between."

What is your take on mixing non-traditional colours?

Love me?

Buy me these shoes?


Absolutely obsessed with ASOS. Now this is a seriously big call...but, before I even open a tab for Facebook in Safari, I open ASOS. Now that's some crazy shit. I hit the "new in" section and take it all in. New blazers, new skirts and new pants. Ohhh my!

I discovered ASOS only perhaps 6 months ago and I have probably done half a dozen orders already. And let me tell you, the orders are not for one item each. If you can work out what size you are (bit of a risk of first) you will be in heaven. Hint: go for the same size you are in Oz clothing regardless of what the net says - the sizes skew larger.

Best purchases thus far? A bright orange skirt, an amazing navy blazer and a leopard watch! Delish.

Check it out. Don't blame me if your credit card suddenly reaches it's limit.

The Biebs

The Biebs. Aka Bieber. Aka 'Baby' singer.

Can not believe what a phenomenon this 17-year-old has become. The YouTube sensation is breaking hearts and is so popular that any girl linked to him is in the line for death threats (ahem, Selena Gomez!).

What I love more than anything is how everyone from my Nan to a toddler knows who he is. While in Melbourne recently Meredith's mum rattled off some random facts about a passerby having the same hair as Justin Beiber's new cut.

What have we become? He's the new Justin Timberlake. Remember the Mickey Mouse Club? Woah. Makes you feel old, just like when you see a guy using a discman on the train.

I still cringe when I hear Baby playing but you know what, we will all have to answer our children's questions about who The Biebs was and why he was so great.

Anyone have an answer?

What's on your playlist?

Every few months I create a new train playlist and literally listen to these same 10 or 20 songs every morning for about a month. The current list includes an insane amount of Kanye West. Bit slow on the uptake with this one but am absolutely digging (get it?!) My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Sample of the current playlist:

  • Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
  • Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve
  • The Bitter End - Placebo
  • Blackbird - Paul McCartney
  • The Blower's Daughter - Damien Rice
  • Breathe - Angels & Airwaves
  • Make You Feel My Love - Adele
  • Clocks - Coldplay
  • Could I Be You - Matchbox Twenty
  • Hand In My Pocket - Alanis Morisette
  • Makes This Go On Forever - Snow Patrol
  • Supersonic - Oasis
  • All Of The Lights - Kanye West
  • Every Teardrop is a Waterfall - Coldplay
  • Flume - Bon Iver
