MSFW - It's Summer in Here! @ Monday, September 28, 2015

Tuesday 1st September

It's Wednesday Night but feels like a Thursday Night, and I can barely recall what we did earlier this week. I don't get sick often, but when I do I totally crash. This time it's with a fever and coughing.

Smoking doesn't help. But it seems almost like every 3rd person in the city smokes. Tuesday started before noon on the train where I had the nerve to tell people (a hillbilly couple) to stop smoking (we were on the train) as I collapsed into a coughing fit (I do have a fever, a cough and can barely breathe). And they told me to f**k off and go back where to I came from. One of my friends said white people don't experience racism (the receiving side) but for me that's definitely not true. 

What would you do when you see someone getting attacked on the train? Knowing that if you said something you'd be next? There should be a helpline via text or a discrete way of calling for help.

I got off the train and waited 30mins for the next one, in doing so missed my time slot for lunch. But I'd rather than than be on a train where I don't feel safe. Fortunately those people are rare on our line.

In the city it's spring fashion week, or rather summer in the hub aka clear plastic tent at city square. Very nice and warm, but not as hot as my coffee. :P Free coffee all week! But only if you know about it. ;)


One of the two runways we're seeing this year is Alannah Hill, featuring florals, pastels and sequins along with Melbourne's 'race day ready theme' aka a race that goes for 2.5mins, that's really an excuse to take a day off work and go drinking while wearing awesome headpieces. My favorite part is the end as that's when all the headpieces are on sale :P

The show was 15mins, the same duration as the ads. The music loud, club loud. You could feel it invading you. There's a couple dresses I like. To our suprize the models were white rather than orange. This year we were lucky enough to get seats which are ticketed. The general public gets to stand. We didn't get tix for the forever new show though. Hoping to get that next year. I'm still not actually sure.

I want this dress! For those who didn't make it to the show I'll be sharing it soon. :)

Sequins. Meeting. Nap. Meanwhile jas went to the 'The Dapper Guide to Vertical Melbourne' ate/swallowed oysters and had eclairs. I was too tired/sick and spent the evening on my face on the sofa, till security woke me.

This time last year I vaguely recall going to one runway show, standing room only. Being frustrated on not being about to buy tickets. And a pop-up at QV. We also went to a show, though was too late to get a showbag, I was under the impression that they'd save some for media but apparently not. 


Thursday, feels like last night to me (it's Sat afternoon as I write this). It's a very vague memory. I had class, went to the office where my body ached (randomly) and we went to the mr runway show. Highlight of the night was ice cream after the show :P Crunchy Nut Cereal! It was awesome! I love it, I'd recommend it and get it again next week.

The Show - More pictures coming soon.

Dex2Rose - Cereal Milk $8

Made from crunchy nut cereal steeped in milk, this velvety gelati is reminiscent of those lay Saturday morning spent watching cartoons and eating cereal, whether you're 5 or 50. Served with a marshmallow pop and diced strawberries. 


The Seasonal Flavour Exchange, the event that lead to jas been fired as my event assistant. If anyone's interested in going to events with me shoot me an email (link on the right). We'll be covering that event by the way, well I will anyway.

Last Sunday

Today we woke up with bronchitis, my throat hurts and I keep coughing :( Reckon I caught it off a woman sitting on my left, where? I don't recall... not feeling great. People are disgusting and I can smell EVERYTHING. If you're a friend there's a high chance I can identify you by your BO or deodorant. The car is a garden, full of jasmine. It's suffocating and feeling like I just snorted it. We are not feeling great.

On the other hand Emma bought me some donuts from Bistro Morgan! I couldn't go, because I wasn't sure if I wouldn't have a breakdown. I'm a cupcake person. Le beau's a donut person. I'm not that impressed, for the ratio of dough it needs more filling. But other than that I liked them, though I prefer the hot jam donuts we get at the station near school.

The afternoon was spent shopping for art & craft supplies. We almost have everything. :) Along the way we bought some pretty brooches to support cancer. Each year mother buys another brooch as she always looses the one she bought the year before, meanwhile I've had the same one for years. Do you buy the same brooch to support a cause annually? 

This Sunday

When I open my mouth unintelligent things come out. XD Yes this is because I communicate in writing, not in person. The later I'm not very good at, and I prefer the prior. This is why I work from home and via email. Also when I'm asked to make calls we practice it and have a script.

How was your week?
