Shopping update

Tan clutch from Forever New - I can't help buying something every time I step foot in this store. Dangerous!

New headbands

And from the Camilla & Marc sale- Savanah in dusty pink

Just a bit of complaining


I don't know what's worse. That my mouth is permanently cut up, or that I don't even bother eating anymore because it's an absolutely miserable task.

This is coming from someone who usually eats out of boredom and loves snacks. So it's basically TORTURE. On the upside, I guess I'll definitely lose weight. Downside - I can't live like this!!! It's killing me already.

Some things I picked up yesterday from the pharmacy:

The Medijel is for during the day, and it just numbs the pain away, haven't fully tested this one so not sure about it's effectiveness

The Kenalog is for use at bedtime, and it's meant to heal the wounds pretty fast, and also creates a paste barrier when you put it on. So far so good, I think it's healed my cuts a bit faster after one application.

I'm still eating very slowly, in little pieces and it still rubs against and hurts every time I open my mouth. I only eat when absolutely necessary. I can't believe eating has become a chore! I even turned down a birthday lunch offer at my new work because I can't eat properly. Not happy!

My inner foodie is crying me a river. Grrr. Please someone tell me it doesn't stay like this forever!

Since I didn't look enough like a 15 year old...

I finally got my braces.

They weren't as painful as I was anticipating them to be. It was more annoyingly long and tiring getting them on more than anything.

They don't hurt otherwise, but eating is a different story. Hoping this subsides very soon (otherwise I will be very upset)

So yes, total Ugly Betty for now.

It's all in the details

I definitely think that's it's the small details that make a clothes truly stunning. Not that simple basic pieces don't have their place as well, but who can resist such pretty creations:

Sass and Bide In another life Embellished dress

Sass and Bide, I'll do it my way Swing dress

Nicole Finetti Twisted Dress With Applique from My Catwalk

Bits and Pieces

Have been neglecting blogging lately again due to work, applying for jobs, being a hermit and not wanting to do much in this freezing cold weather!

Been doing some shopping here and there:

Tony Bianco heels- bought these for work, but they are great for any outfit!

I can never help myself in the accessories section in Forever New. It's the best shop for reasonably priced goodies.

Bangles from Forever New

Also had a squiz at IGA supermarket after work and found more intriguing lollies:

Chocolate skittles!! Unfortunately these don't taste very good...

Crazy core skittles

The Blue Raspberry and Lemon ones are yum!

Almond M&Ms

Hershey Almond Joys

Snapped this pretty picture of St Mary's Cathedral before going to the Sydney Winter Festival... didn't take any pictures of the actual festival though since it was so small/packed and I couldn't be bothered!

Nothing much else is new.

1) Still hunting for a job.

2) Pretty much have gone cold on the idea of going back to uni. Endless nights of stress and study, being broke, accumlating a HECS debt etc has zero appeal to me at the moment. Especially since there's no promise of a job afterwards either.

3) Have curbed my appetite for shopping. I haven't bought much lately due to being busy with work. Which is a good thing

4) In place of said shopping habit, I've been eating a ridiculous amount of junk at work. Chocolate bars which I justify because it's for charity, chips, various morning teas, cakes and whatnot. SO FAT

5) Have been slacking off at the gym, only going once a week or not at all because of overtime. Must get into it again and stop with the excuses! This cold weather really doesn't help since it just makes me want to hibernate. Grr
