What I Wore 3.12.08

Things have been pretty quiet around the ol' Gin HQ (aka, my house) recently! I have picked up an awful awful cold/flu thing from Boy so I have spent the past couple of days feeling like my head is wrapped up in a big pile of cotton balls. Not very good.

This is what I wore to go and get groceries. I left all my makeup at Boy's on the weekend, hence the no facing the camera directly! Eek!

Top: Target//Skirt: Dotti//Leggings: American Apparel//Shoes: I ♥ Billy//Necklace: Paraphernalia

Also, one of my bloggy crushes Nubby Twiglet did a post today on 10 random facts about her. I had fun reading her list, so here is mine! Sorry if some facts are repeated from other posts, but, well, I'm sure you can cope.

1. I'm pretty good with grammar and spelling, but I can never spell 'rhythm' and 'business'! I always spell it 'buisness' and spell rhythm any number of ways.

2. My first job was working in a kiosk at a sports centre.

3. I've never dated anyone with blonde hair.

4. I can't whistle or blow a bubble with bubblegum!

5. I'm right-handed when I write, but I do most other things (like pouring coffee or whatever) left-handed. I'm not ambidextrous or anything, so I don't know what's going on there!

6. I haven't been overseas (yet!)

7. My fingers are double jointed, and the tips of them flex out naturally.

8. I can't stand the taste of bourbon - even smelling it makes me want to throw up!

9. I've met Arj Barker & Tara Moss, and my friend and I accidentally harrassed the kids from Operator Please at Big Day Out (by accusing them of sneaking backstage - it was rather embarrassing)

10. I was 'senior student' in primary school, which basically was the head girl. My good school career ended pretty much after year 7, though!

So make a list too!




  1. I totally have problems with rhythm too! I even had problems typing it just then for this comment. I also have trouble spelling diarrhea. But hopefully I won't have to use that particular word too often.

    P. S. The word verification thingy is 'bumsdip'. After talking about diarrhea, I can't help feeling something weird is going on. I think I just lowered the tone of your comment section considerably, sorry. :P

  2. for being sick/without make up you sure look cute!

  3. looking good...loving the necklace. oh you're not alone on not being able to whistle. I try and try and try but I just can't.
    How are you going with that piece I asked you to write btw?

  4. After my birthday shenanigans, I can't stand the taste of Bourbon either - it got so bad that I had to say 'The B-Word' instead of Bourbon or else I'd want to be sick.

    I hope you feel better soon though :( You still look super cute!

  5. love this outfit, your waist looks tiny!

    (no 5, that is wierd! haha)

    hope you feel better soon! xox

  6. LOL, what you got against blondes? j/k

    I can't stand the taste or smell of bourbon either, and I was born and raised in Kentucky!
