Spring weekends

It's been a long, hard week.  I've had zero energy and motivation - for anything!  I am back at the gym full time after a very slack year.  3 gym sessions and one 'tan' run a week for the second week in a row.  I have lots planned for the summer and I need the body and the strength and energy to fit it all in.  I think Melbourne has finally heard my pleas for some warmth and sunshine and it finally delivered with two sunny, 21C/70F days.  There was a lot of smiles and appreciation shown by me.  Melbourne came alive for the AFL grand final (which ended up being a draw only for the 3rd time in history - AFL doesn't believe in extra time, so they have to come back for a rematch next week!)

The weather was so pleasing in fact that my legs came out of jeans/tights/trousers for the first time since April.  And my quest for a grey blazer ended with a $600+ Lover blazer picked up on eBay for $90.  Life's good!  Plenty of cooking, cleaning, cinema visits and reading was also actioned in between.

  • shakuhachi 'twisted sister' jersey dress
  • zac posen for target jacket
  • witchery suede boots
  • asos over the knee socks
  • sportsgirl eiffel tower brooch
