What I wore this week: #1

Well I've sporadically been posting pictures of outfits I wear on flickr. Even more sporadically have I been uploading them onto weardrobe to try and catalogue all my clothes.

Inspired by some of the great gals on the youlookfab forum, I'm now going to blog about these very same outfits.

Feel free to press snooze.

Otherwise watch me attempt to channel my inner fashionista (everyone has one of those right??) and attempt to move my wardrobe out of birkenstock land :)

1) Sunday
It was cool again last weekend. So cool that I threw on a scarf before heading outside. In summer. Crazy!!

Not a very summery dayNot a very summery day

2) Tuesday?
Wearing the red shoes and the black skinny trousers I bought recently. Paired them with a red tunic top. Too matchy? As it was cold outside I threw on a SS black cardie for the trip to work, didn't wear it during the day though. Excuse the wet hair please :)

3) Thursday
I think I've posted pics of this outfit before. Its a combo that works for me - everything about it is so comfy!!

These pants are at least 7 years old. Funnily enough another colleague at work has the exact same pair - we both wore them on the same day. We have promised each other that if we ever find brown pants as comfy as these we will let the other know!

Oldies but goodies

4) Saturday
Going out to the markets today. Finally a warm and sunny day!! Yet more Vietnam pointy toed shoes. The right foot on this pair felt very snug. Wore them for about 2 hours with no pain as such, but still.....snug. I hope they stretch out!!!

Finally a sunny day!

Wrong and right

So very very wrong:
  • That according the V countdown of best hits of 1992, Billy Ray Cyrus' Achey Breaky Heart is #2.
A travesty!!
Somewhat restoring justice into the world:
  • The gunners November Rain is #1.
Suck on that Billy!

Now this is getting ridiculous

We have been living in this house for nearly 8 weeks. Times flies when you're working your ass off for a mere pittance more than you'd get working the same hours at McDonalds having fun.

Anyway, this is not a rant about money. It's a rant about SPIDERS.

These ones to be precise.


In a mere 8 weeks we have now had 6 of these suckers inside our house/car . It's a bloody infestation!!

I cannot handle the sight of these massive, hairy, sneaky, scurrying spiders. They scare the pants off me. Give me a snake, cockroach or rat over these buggers any day of the week and I will not complain.

I can't handle huntsmen!

Tonight I'm all alone. And we've run out of insect spray. I am feeling very, very vulnerable.

Not one, but two

Mistakes I made tonight whilst attempting to make this slice:
  • Using 1 1/2 cups of both plain and self-raising flour instead of 1/2 cup of each
  • Using regular sugar instead of brown sugar
The result? A pale glutinous mess that could barely fit inside the mixing bowl or baking dish.

Completely inedible. Ugh!!
