Reasons To Grow Your (my) Hair Long

Leighton Meester's shoot with Christophe Meimoon for Marie Claire UK...
(thanks Fashion Gone Rogue)
Definitely inspired to grow my hair out now. It's been frustrating switching styles while my hair is in its ugly middle-stage and it's going to be like this for about two years but I'm sick of having no versatility with it. There's something really 60s about the first photo, and she's so petite and doll like

OH and young Mia Farrow is delightful

For Sale This Week

Here are a few of the items I have for sale on TradeMe this week...I made a big trip out to Petone and went to my favourite shop where they let you have anything for like $1. Got a free portable typewriter there once even. I still didn't find much though, all the good clothes in the thrift shops seem to be drying up as people become more aware that you can look unique in cheap clothes too. Also the shops themselves are putting their prices up. I'm talking $21 for a fucking black bodycon dress of no particular label. Poor people still need clothes, you know....anyway

The mohair sweater is hideous and awesome at the same time. The polka dot dress has cut out detailing and bows on the back but it wouldn't photograph for me.

I'm getting really sick of sub-par photos from my shitty point and shoot Olympus so I decided to save up for one of these babies or something like it

All I really want is a camera that takes semi professional looking photos, godamnit....soon

Also, some photos from the last couple of weeks

Karaoke Madness

Also, Me and He Who Doesn't Want To Be Named

Well Well Well

I've been doing some searching....these photos make me weak at the knees

I'm also steadily building up my collection of ugly brown mugs, this one is my current favourite:

13 Going On 30

Watching 13 Going On 30 tonight...I'm not and have never been a fan of romantic comedies but can someone explain to me why 30 party-goers dancing in synch to "Thriller" by Michael Jackson makes me get goosebumps all over? Disgusted with myself.


After a few half-hearted tries I've decided to try this for real. Hopefully if I keep it up it can be some sort of compilation of all things that influence me as it goes on and will be good to look back on later. I'm currently obsessed with all things 60s/70s....I foresee numerous posts of people who I don't know and photos I don't own

Me, looking like a 12 year old
