MONDAY - PART 1 OF 1
Yeah I'm back, finally.
I didn't plan on being away from the site for so long, things have just been so busy lately. Exams before the trip then when I got back I was psysically and emotionally drained for the first week then the following week I had to catch up on life plus the pile of work waiting for me at the office. Things are finally starting to fall back into place again, I've missed this more then you know!
I wish I could share more personal pictures with you guys, but that would involve my friends and I can't really post that stuff on here, but if you are keen there is always facebook. Email me if you want my credentials, please include your blog or website. I may or may not add you, it depends on how well I know you as a reader, so don't take offence!
(The little Russian dolls are form Berlin)
Ottawa -London - Dublin - Marrakech (via London) - Casablanca - Rome - Berlin - Barcelona - London - Ottawa
LONDON, ENGLAND: I'm not really going to share that many pictures as well everyone knows what to expect of London. I'm actually considering moving there next year, so I'll be able to travel more. It's still just a thought though. It's the only city I can see myself living in for a while, I didn't even feel that way when I was living in Melbourne.
DUBLIN, IRELAND: Yup that's me, walking around the beach in Bray. It was raining that day (What else is new), but we decided to check it out anyway. I tried to do some different things since I had already done all the touristy stuff when I was in Dublin last September.
MARRAKECH, MOROCCO:Morocco was the highlight of this entire trip, I'm so glad I decided to take a chance and go there in the end this place is so magical. We couldn't get Aladdin, flying carpets and Rock the Casbah out of heads lol.
Shopping in the Souk is a special skill, too many goodies!!
I bought this book when I got to the Tegel airport, unfortunately it wasn't in the right language! Yes, I had a Jen moment.
I was blown away by Berlin, the city is so neat and organized it's hard not to be impressed. I want to go back someday soon for sure.
The white and silver Jar is from Morocco.
I was trying to get this painting I got in Morocco onto a canvas, I ended up taping it down at the back because I didn't have a stapler.
Wooden pencils from the Berlin Zoo, I knew I would not use them, but they were too cute to pass up.
My boyfriend was in Australia for a week while I was gone because his nan is sick, he did manage to bring me back this months Cleo which came with a free Kookai bag. I'm not too sure I like the covergirl though lol
Funny one on the blue dress, I actually saw a girl wearing it in Barcelona at my hostel and I was admiring it, then when I was in London I spotted it at H & M I would have walked passed it if I had not seen how great it was on her. The shirt dress on the left is from Blanco.
STUFF I GOT WHEN I GOT HOME: They came out with a new color for the racer tshirt at American Apparel, there were only two left...well I guess now only one. I wish I could have found it in the extra small (men's), but I'll have to deal with the bigger size.
50/50 tee and skirt both from American Apparel. I can't believe I bought this skirt in another again. I need to stay out of that store, I'm sure they know my face.
Geeky glasses from American Eagle.
Floral dress from Fairweather, the other one was free (buy one get one free). There wasn't too much to pick from in the free section, and it's not really my style, but once I tried it on at home I didn't mind it.
Sweater/Jacket from Aritzia
This weekend was also the Glebe Garage sale, I go with my mom every year. This year wasn't too sucessful for me as I didn't find any big ticket items, but I'm still happy with my finds. I really like the Leaning Tower of Pisa parmesean shaker and the 80s tshirt from China. ( The girl who sold it to me bought it herself back in the day! I love how legit it is.)
So I think it's safe to say I won't be shopping much this summer, I'm going to save my pennies for a change and daydream about celebrity looks instead.
I will try to get back to fashion in the next couple of days.
