A Studded Collar

Time sure flies...

Since I last blogged, I went through a series of interviews for my dream job... And I got it!

I will tell you more about it in due course however for now, I have just been busy getting used to my role and changing my routine from lazy student to 9-5er.

Moving on, it seems despite my absence that I've been nominated for the Navabi Curvy Blog Awards 2013 - a big thank you to whoever nominated me - see my sidebar for the link to vote!

Now onto my outfit...

Among The Flowers

A month ago, Mum and I went to a park near our home for a picnic and some fresh air. Before we left, we decided to snap some photos in the tea gardens.

Inspired by The Justice League

I have two reasons for writing this post. One, I want to write about one of my interests: comic books. And two, I want to take advantage of the comic book fashion trend and use superhero costumes as inspiration for outfits. I also wanted to take this opportunity to post photos of hot half-naked men.

For those of you who don't know. There are two comic book companies who created the superheroes we know and love today: DC Comics and Marvel Comics. DC is responsible for heroes such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and The Flash while Marvel is responsible for heroes such as Spider-Man, Thor, X-Men and Iron Man.

I'm actually more into Marvel than DC but since Marvel films are dominating at the box office, I feel DC needs more love right now. I've also decided to take this opportunity to share with you the actors I want to play the "missing members" of The Justice League - DC's "equivalent" of The Avengers.


Shop This Look:
Louche Bags Berkeley Clutch

Potential Actor: Kellan Lutz

Now I know Aquaman doesn't have the best reputation. If The Big Bang Theory has taught us anything, it's that Aquaman sucks. However I think he's a very underrated hero. He's telepathic and can control the minds of both animals and humans. He has superhuman strength.  He has the ability to breathe underwater. He can swim at high speeds and he can see in the dark. Not too shabby, right? If you need more reasons to think Aquaman is cool then check out this article.

Sun in The Sky, Sun in My Eyes

Taking photos outside may actually become a habit of mine! I got home from work knowing my Mum was about to finish work too so I impulsively grabbed my white heels and walked straight out the door again to besiege her. Unfortunately I forgot to bring my digital camera AND my white Gucci sunglasses (to complete my all-white look) but hey, I'm getting there... So again, my apologies for the iPhone quality photos... And my squinted eyes...

This all-white look was inspired by this month's link-up challenge from:

A little tip: Remember if you're wearing a fitted or thin white garment, to wear nude underwear or if it's a dress, a nude slip can come in handy.

The Tale of My First Maxi Skirt

Firstly, are you my GFC follower? Google reader won't be available from July so switch to Bloglovin - check out the top of my side bar to find out how...

Secondly, I took photos outside! I had two "photo shoots" - one before watching World War Z and one after watching World War Z. (It is an amazing movie!) The photos were taken on my Mum's iPhone hence the low-ish photo quality but this is still progress for me, right?

Before World War Z ...
... After World War Z

Geo Gets Tucked In

I'm finally back! How do you like my blog's mini makeover?! It was tough finding a wallpaper to top the last one but I have! I adore it! An "About Me" section (with a video!) and a blogroll section is coming soon!

Today I went to meet a couple of friends at my favourite cafe. Unfortunately the jumper ended up being too thick for the high temperature inside but my best friend's compliment on my outfit kept me smiling through the heat.

Busy, Busy, Busy

It is ridiculous how long I've gone without blogging and honestly, I've been that busy that I didn't even realise just how looooong! I profusely apologise.

Unfortunately I won't be making my way back onto the blogosphere until June, when I finish my last school term of this academic year. Until then, please sit tight and watch me slowly transform my blog...

I'm talking a new background, new pages (e.g. About Me, Blogroll), and more varied content to give my blog more of a personal stamp. I've decided to fuse my feminine style with my hobbies and hopefully churn out a more interesting blog for my lovely readers :)

Don't worry though, my blog is always first and foremost a personal style blog so if it's just my outfits you're after then rest assured, they will always be a dominant and regular feature.

Thboxes Give-Away!

I am very happy to report that this is my first give-away! I've had a couple of websites approach me before but I simply wasn't interested in what they had to offer. Call me old-fashioned but I like to only promote brands I actually like.

Thboxes is a China-based online retailer that delivers to customers all over the globe. They offer ranges of jewellery, handbags, clothes, accessories and shoes.

In this international give-away you could win a piece of jewellery priced $8 or less. (All of their jewellery is priced under $9 so "$8 or less" barely limits you.) The number of winners will equal 10% of the number of applicants!

Also all participants, yes, ALL participants will receive a 10% discount code. Which means even if you're not a winner, you win.

Here's some of the jewellery you could get your hands on...

Unfortunately, I'll be gone a while longer but I already have some posts in the making - I look forward to my comeback!

Here's some Pon and Zi by Jeff Thomas to get you through your day...

The Geometric Jumper

My first outfit post of 2013 features this Warehouse geometric jumper which as I've said before, I wouldn't normally choose. It doesn't have a defined waist which is normally a must for my body shape and if I do choose a baggy knit, it tends to be a dress rather than a top.

Apps: Draw Something!

I have been swamped with college stuff this week so I haven't had time to take any outfit photos... Bummer.

I began wondering whether I should do a post of my favourite apps and while wondering which apps would make the list, I remembered Draw Something - an app I was addicted to last year. It's basically pictionary and while I'm not a particularly good artist, I have my moments! I can only draw well from sight though, not from imagination so I tend to google cartoons and draw from sight onto my iPad.

Here are my best drawings...

Gossip Girl, Season 4

I figured since my last (now most commented!) post was a heavy dose of my style in 2012, I'd do a post with someone else's styling as my first in 2013. Some of you may already be fed up of my Gossip Girl dedications but I am going to keep going until the last season! Now only two more seasons to go...

In previous posts we've looked at...

...Season 1...

...Season 2...

...and Season 3.

Now it's time for Season 4...
