Another year, eh? That means I’m (over)due for the inevitable 2011 recap! Last year I:
- appeared on Triple J;
- set up the All Bodies Directory;
- brought fat acceptance to Cosmopolitan Australia;
- shaved my head;
- MCed for Gisela Ramirez’s launch and Sydney Creative Movement‘s end-of-year concert;
- crossed two new countries off my list; and
- after seven years, FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY moved in with the Boyfriend.
Bring on 2012. Onwards and upwards, I say.
On New Year’s Eve, the Boyfriend and I went out to dinner to Ms G’s. (Lightning quick review: Good, but several dishes are similar, and inferior, to dishes at other inner Sydney restaurants. Their mini bánh mì isn’t as good as Gardel’s pulled pork sliders. Their xo noodles aren’t a patch on Duke Bistro‘s.) After returning home to grab supplies, we went to nearby Sydney Park to get a panoramic view of the fireworks with a packet of glow-in-the-dark jewellery, a box of sparklers, and a bottle of fancy French perry (which I much prefer to champagne). Lovely.
This necklace is the best purchase I’ve ever made. It’s a wee bit exxy (£123; those colourful gems are Swarovski crystals) but – no exaggeration – it/I receive compliments every single time I wear it. It is absolutely spectacular.
Dress: Jibri – custom made (I’m between size 1 and 2). Old collection.

Bag: Broadway Betty. Vintage.
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Uniform Glitter from Solestruck – size 10. Old collection.
On New Years Day, we invited a few mates over for a barbecue lunch at ours (BECAUSE WE HAVE OUR OWN FLAT!) before heading to a nearby warehouse party. This is my perfect dancing outfit: baggy top, stretchy leggings, lightweight accessories and high top sneakers.
I’ve loved this Anna Scholz print for months. Seeing these amazing leggings on sale was the kick in the arse I needed. TIGHTS AS PANTS FOR LIFE.
Tshirt: Sportsgirl – size large. Old collection.
