Brisbane weather totally sucks; I swear it is bipolar! It is really hot during the day and cold as ice at night. Being the lazy person I am; I try to dress to accommodate the transition from day to night – wear a long sleeve and a skirt, so during the day I am still ‘cool’ (because I am wearing a skirt) and at night I am ‘warm’ (by wearing a long sleeve top, seriously, what was I thinking when I woke up this morning?!). I swear this thinking does not work at all. I am hot and sweaty during the day and by the late afternoon I am an icicle.

Doesn’t help that I was feeling yucky today, so this was all I could manage to pull off. Do you know those days where you feel like your ugly and your hair doesn’t like you, even though you washed it the night before, it is oily and just hates you. Usually, when I am feeling like that I opt for tying my hair up. I usually tend to stay away from tying my hair up because I have a face the size of a meat bun; by keeping my hair down it doesn’t look so large (some weird Asian logic my mother taught me).

I really want to find different ways to style my hair when it is not in my favour. I’ve tried dry shampoo but I feel as if I am just chucking junk into my head, or maybe I am not using the right products. Not too sure, hmm.

Anyway, I am actually meant to be doing my ethics case study due next Monday but I have yet to start typing it. I procrastinate like crazy; does anyone have ANY suggestions to keep motivated and focused? I work well under pressure but lately I have been cutting it close and what I have also realised, as soon as I cut it close- I settle for a pass not a 7. Speaking of this case study, I should get back to it and my Sydney photo diary will be up probably this weekend.

Lots of love,

  1. These are great photographs.
    I am a heavy procrastinator too. Usually, for me, setting "deadlines" helps me get going since I know I have to do something by a certain point. If I don't, then I let it drag on too long.

    1. I'm so screwed right now! I still haven't done much from the last time i blogged either!! :(

  2. I like to procrastinate too so I am really no help! :) Love your outfit! Very chic and I like your hair in a bun!


  3. You look very fresh:) What keeps me focused are lattes, so try it!

    Maybe follow me on bloglovin too?

  4. I really like the asymmetrical skirt! Everyone seems to be wearing the zara skort at the moment, it's nice to see an asymmetrical hem that isn't that!

    love, greta
