can't get enough

veronica etro never ceases to amaze me. 
her iconic crazy madness of patterns
makes me feverish for more.

this season it was all about
leather sleeves, tartan and paisley patterns, 
nylon lurex, and always the ethnic influence. 

too much is never enough.

my fave looks: #3, 4, 6 and 8.

the corner house

tonite was bar hopping in bondi.
ok wait, correction:
on bondi road. 
NOT bondi.

bondi beach: travelers/backpackers.
bondi road: locals and chillers.

we went to the corner house where t-honey had her bday.
i like this place cuz i feel like i'm in an actual home
with different rooms to wander around in and
hang out on the balcony that's sheltered.

and they have good thin crust pizzaaa!!!

then onto the squirrel where holly (vancouverite)
works and ate chicken pate and a brownie. 
yum yum!

that's what she said

"why are we like this?" she asked. 

"what do you mean?" he said.

"i mean, there you are with your girlfriend. 
and there i am with my boyfriend.
and yet, here we are."

"i know you have your girlfriend. 
and i have my boyfriend. 
but one thing is for certain:
i will always love you. forever."

"what do you mean by that?" he asked.

"i mean that i know we'll be together someday again.
we'll live happily ever after."

"how can you be so certain?"

"i can feel it in my bones.
and Jesus told me."

go for a ride

me, chris and emmanuelle went for a 
ride in his super cool yellow jeep.

listening to blues and rock,
we decided to go to the north shore
and see where our route would take us. 

we ended up in balmoral beach. 
pretty small beach. nice sand. nice scenery. 
then we went to manly beach and chilled
and relaxed there. 

i wish you could see the pics and watch the videos
i took. they're fun. espesh the vid where me and chris
are lying on the beach and manu can't find us, 
so she sits down on the beach by herself
about 30 metres away. and then chris
calls her and asks her where she is
while we stare at her and laugh.

also, i wish you could hear when we were
making fun of manu's french accent. she kept on 
saying how nice the "bitch" (beach) is. i was like what?
yah let's go lie on that "bitch." look at all the seagulls 
circling that "bitch." there's a lot of waves crashing 
on the "bitch." haha... oh dear. we are silly.

next monday we are gonna drive on up to the farthest point
of the north shore, to palm beach. i hear it's amazing there!
can't wait for some more road trip times! :)

"oh! you are a great deal too apt, you know, to like people in general. you never see a fault in anybody. all the world are good and agreeable in your eyes. i never heard you speak ill of a human being in my life."

"i would wish not to be hasty in censuring any one; but i always speak what i think."

"i know you do; and it is that which makes the wonder. with your good sense, to be so honestly blind to the follies and nonsense of others! affectation of candour is common enough; - one meets it everywhere. but to be candid without ostentation or design - to take the good of everybody's character and make it still better, and say nothing of the bad - belongs to you alone."

i miss my sisters' pretty faces.
can't wait to see you soon!

bon iver

i've been listening nonstop to bon iver's new album:
self-titled "bon iver."

his music is a dream to me.


"armour let it through, borne the
arboretic truth you kept posing.
sat down in the suit, fixed on up
it wasn’t you by finished closing."

"settle past a patience where wishes
and your will are spilling pictures.
water’s running through in the valley
where we grew to write this scripture."

i know i know i know

"this love hasn't changed me at all. 
the same as i love you, you'll always love me too. 
this love isn't gonna last. it's me and you."

i luv how on saturdays 
i can go have brunch
in one of the many places
in surry hills and then go to the
markets, (my fave is the surry hills one)
and then pass away the day relaxing, reading, 
painting and writing and doing laundry. 

that's my ideal day.
it's very therapeutic for me.
