la garconne

Some inspiration from La Garconne. Not sure how but they always manage to use the simplest items to look chic... I am so drawn to this simplistic style at the moment, it's just so much easier to throw some basic pieces together knowing that they'll look good whichever pieces that you put on. So comfortable as well.
I'm toying with the idea of flower pants as well. Miranda Kerr looks so good in these two:

how I want to dress this summer

They have started popping up everywhere but I'm not sure if I should get a pair. They look like something that I'm gonna wear once only (yeah like that maroon jeans...) but they are so.pretty. 

and oh rain, please stop it you.

fifty shades of yum

I am a curious cat. So of course I have read Fifty Shades of Grey. 

I have heard many, many things about this book, mainly about how poorly written it is and how much sexy time is in it. First, here's a gif image that shows pretty well my reaction when I first read it:

..and my opinion on this book, in dot points:
  • I didn't think that it will be that the sex part is going to be so descriptive and confronting.. then again this is my first R rated book that I have ever read.. so yeah (sorry for lack of words)
  • The sexy time drags the book for so much.. I reckon they could've chopped some/most of the sex parts and make this series into 2 books and not three. 
  • Book 3 is the most boring book. Far out. 
  • I agree that it is written like a 15 year old write a sick fanfic. but then again it started as a fanfic so really.. can't complain.
  • all the Holy Cow, lip biting, inner goddess thing is annoying. 
  • Christian Grey is a batshit insane psycho. He actually reminds me of a controlling and obsessed ex of mine. Saying that, I am more attracted to Christian rather than Edward Cullen though.. maybe the appeal is on how a person like Christian may actually exist and also the fact that Edward is a sparkling vampire *vomit
  • Christian Grey don't have that much fashion sense.. all he wears is black jeans, dirty ripped playroom jeans, suits and tshirts. The writer could have described this better.
  • How can a 22 year old chick be so clueless about sex, relationship and her body in general? 
  • I can so imagine Angelina Jolie be Elena and Meryl Streep as Grace Trevelyan.
  • I still dont get about Jack's grudge against the Greys?? is it only because they adopted Christian, not him??That's just silly...and what's with Elizabeth? is she his old PA/lover kind of thing?? (I obviously skipped a lot of the book) this whole thing is just confusing...
In summary, I'll give it a 3.5/5... trashy but enjoyable. Read only if you actually have a time to kill. I think I enjoy it most because I imagine Matt Bomer as Christian Grey when I was reading it.....
Pretty sure the writer mentioned somewhere that Christian wears black jeans and black leather jacket?

Now in suits. oh and this is my favourite photo:

Aw Mr Grey you can spank me anytime! Can't imagine anyone else as Mr. Grey. Yum Yum.

What do you think of the book???


PS pics are from here. You are welcome ;)

The mr is obsessed with cameras. he was so excited when he bought his leica and I don't understand why because for me its really just like those oldie cameras that you find on Surry hills market. The above are some of the photos that we took using that grandpa of a camera.. I think it looks pretty cool.. like a subtle version of instagram (just with real actual camera) I feel a bit weird because I can't see what the pictures looks like straight away.. and then I realize that it has been that long since the last time that I used or have someone take my picture with an analog camera. The above pictures are taken in a place called Magic Point (when it was still warm enough to be barefoot).. it’s quite a scenery isn't it. On one side you've got a rocky edge and the sea and at the other side is all green and grassy (Sorry for lack of better words) It's nominated as one of the 'getaway places within Sydney' by SMH few months and I agree with them, the place is really peaceful and it gives you the sense of being somewhere far away from the city whilst it is actually just 20 minutes from the CBD. 

Here's the outfit talk - this is basically all I wear all winter and probably the direction I am heading at. I think I've gone past that phase of buying everything that I think is 'OMG SO CUTE' and have become someone that shops more wisely with much less impulse-induced purchases- which I am proud of!

Have a good weekend everyone xxxxxxx
