Choo Choo

I don’t just love Jimmy Choo shoes. I love Jimmy Choo everything.

Don’t worry. I drooled a little too.

All my loving

Websites I’m really enjoying lately..

Jimmy Choo

Readers of my blog should know by now that I’m a pretty massive Jimmy Choo fan. But I’ve actually never really spent tonnes of times on their website. Maybe for good reason. It makes me a little bit depressed at how lovely everything is. It’s on my list of things to do before I’m 30, own a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes. I don’t know how I will ever afford it, but it’s still a goal. Part of me feels like a superficial ditz who is really too obsessed with fashion and fashion related things, the other part thinks.. no.. this is beautiful art, not just shoes.

Lifehacker

I found this website the other day. It’s just a bunch of articles in different categories, but it saves just googling around looking for things. It’s meant to help de-clutter your life and help out etc. It has yet to really influence my life in a meangingful way, but it’s good for something different to read in a lunch hour.

The Sartorialist

Most fashionista’s (never used that word before in my life) would know about this one. So so very good. And such regular posting.

Toni Snell Photography

I think I’ve linked to Toni Snell’s blog before, but it’s because I really like her. My best friend Bec is getting married in 2 weeks and Toni Snell is her photographer. I think it’ll be kind of like meeting a celebrity, I get really star struck and make a bit of an idiot of myself. Because I’m such a fan of her work I think it will be a little bit like when I saw Hamish and Andy. I was a real idiot.

The Cherry Blossom Girl

This site is also a recent find but I really love it. From what I can gather, the author is the model and she’s just stunning. Really romantic sort of clothing which is the kind of stuff I just love. The pictures are also really beautiful, great settings and poses etc. You should take a look! The only real bummer about this site is that a lot of it is in French. It makes you feel cultured though, there’s also a translation which helps!

Stuff Christians Like

Always a favourite of mine. I love good Christian humour. It’s hard to find, but this is definitely it.

Shopping for labels, looking for love

A couple of days ago I arrived home from a weeks holiday in Sydney. Ages ago Bec and I booked a holiday that started off with a couple of days shopping and culminated with the Hillsongs Women’s Conference, Colour. Overall it was a great holiday, shopping and Jesus, always a good combination. I’ve noticed some things about Sydney that I’d like to share.

1. Labels, labels, labels! There are fake labels everywhere in Sydney. I’ve seen them from time to time here in Brisbane, but they are seriously everywhere in Sydney. At markets, stores, Chanel, Versace and Dolce as far as the eye can see! Bad fakes, good fakes. We had a lot of fun shopping in the real stores though, and when you see the real prices (actually.. most fancy stores don’t show you the real prices, because when you’re rich you don’t care) and compare them with the fake prices, you’re really getting a bargain.

2. Sydney smells! I mean not everywhere, it didn’t smell inside of Jimmy Choo or Chanel, or Escada…. but almost everywhere else stinks. We’re walking through the markets.. it smells. We’re walking down the street.. it smells. We’re walking through Bondi.. it smells. Seriously, why does it smell so much in Sydney?

3. Sydney really is the place for the foreigners to reside. I actually think there are more foreigners in the CBD than there are original Sydney dwellers. By the end of the week I’d gotten quite good at deciphering foreign accents.

4. Sydney on a whole, is better looking. Females are better looking.. seriously, the amount of good looking women at Colour – WOO!! And let’s just say.. that the men in Sydney.. are better looking also. Maybe I just got used to the guys in Brisbane? Who knows.

5. The travel home from Sydney is a pain! We got charged like $50 in excess baggage.. although on the way down we had excess baggage and didn’t get charged. Bec got random drug tested.. which is a pain. Our plane got delayed by an hour.. and we had the bumpiest plane ride I’ve had in ages. Although that was kind of Brisbane’s fault.

Overally though.. it was a great trip. Filled with lots of good photos and even better memories. Maybe I’ll post some pictures later!

Sorry to the Syndey CBD and any proud Sydney fans.. but your city really does smell.
