Photobucket Amazingly sharp scripted and edited film. Also loved the eighties inspired pink typography and soundtrack to match. Not much a fan of Gosling however, but he played the part well. And you all know my feelings about Mulligan! I couldn't say a bad word about her pretty petite face.

Swedish Hasbeens

After almost a year of um-ing and ah-ing over whether to purchase Swedish Hasbeens I've finally made the plunge and purchased the classic super high natural hasbeens. I was going to buy the clogs at Gorman, however they just never looked as nice as the Swedish ones. Man, the Swedes always know how to do it the best!

Heading out to my friends next door neighbors house warming wearing my favourite Gorman mustard silk shirt. My fringe really needs to be trimmed and I want to kill this summer glow I have going on (that's what you get for spending too much time in the beach sans sun cream.) Yes, I'm pretty asian when it comes to having tanned skin, I've just never been one that looks good tanned. But on the plus side, I have four pear rekorderligs to finish and I'm bringing my film camera out with hopes to finish the roll of film currently residing in it.

Freaks and Geeks

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket source; screencaps

New favorite cult television show. It's only eighteen episodes long, and lasted one season but has since reached a pretty huge cult following. I'm totally in love with the whole 90s grunge vibe it has going on (Lindsay, the main female lead is in jeans and a khaki green parka in almost every shot of the first two episodes) and it has young grunge versions of James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jason Segal. Man there are so many new and old (but never watched) television shows that I have to marathon this summer. They include; Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Freaks and Geeks, Big Love, Modern Family, Scrubs, The Mighty Boosh, 30 Rock, Flight of the Concords, Popular amongst catching up on others.

Having said that, it's summer here now. I've spent the past couple of days since my last exam at the beach with a beer in hand, reading, chilling, watching Star Wars and really not doing anything at all. It's amazing.

I'm just a little bit in love with the whole minimalist look mastered by designers like APC, Acne and American Apparel. I have so many simple striped tees it's ridiculous. Pretty much just procrastashopping away from my communications exam tomorrow.

DSC_0018DSC_0016DSC_0017 It's a little bit of a tradition that whenever Viv and I travel, we will always source out a decent place for Dim Sum. Here's some snaps of my favourite dishes from our last dim sum sesh.

Summer Goals

b&wDSC_0010 Three exams yet to be completed and five days until chilled cider can be enjoyed on the beach. And then, three months of uninterrupted summer bliss. So many things to be achieved, dreams to be be checked off. We are the ones that let them come true. Let's get to it.

arvust_shirt Sporadic blog posts ftw. It's mainly because I haven't taken my camera out in about a month, due to exams and Viv being in Sydney for the past couple of weeks. I've just been hibernating away, studying and watching heaps of television. Only another week and everything will be over.

Yesterday I took a well deserved break (not really deserved at all) from my non-existent study and went on the hunt to buy some uber cool boys clothes for my boyfriend (he has about 3 shirts which he alternates between, and two pairs of jeans both with holes in them...) I ended up buying myself some guys shirts from General Pants too (seriously, the skater tomboy thing is still running through my veins). I really can't resist leaving General Pants empty handed, it's like some sort of crime or something. The first two shirts were raglans (2 for $50!), which I've wanted since I started skating. Technically I'm supposed to be sharing them with him, but whatever, they are amazing. He actually bought some really cool cheap monday chinos and a pair of jeans which look really nice. The other shirt I bought was this Arvust yellow, white and blue striped organic cotton shirt (pictured) which is actually the most comfiest thing ever and fits really nicely. I've also been needing glasses for the majority of this year now, but kinda procrastinated getting them as they really make me look like a downright hipster. But after studying for these exams, I've realised that the actual health of my eyes is probably more important than caring what people think haha.

Love is a temporary madness

Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don’t blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being ‘in love’ which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.

Study study

C008523-R1-04-5C008523-R1-03-4 I've been a lazy blogger, haven't really been doing anything all too interesting besides studying. I saw Norwegian Wood last week and I didn't love or hate it. I was planning on reading the book before the film, but I just ran out of time and it was about to leave the cinemas. I think when I saw it I was tired and in a bit of a crappy mood, plus it was really long so I lost a bit of concentration. I'll have to rewatch again in the holidays. I've bought so many freaking books over the past month that I just don't have a spare second to even consider reading them. I have to start sticking to the rule of, no buying of new books until all of the last ones have been read. I really can't see that happening anytime soon though.
