#jeansfreephona day 7

Already been to a maths talk this morning, with Rish spurring kids on to study mathematics for mathematics’ sake. Will be on YouTube soon, if my camera work wasn’t too shakey ;)

Now, to loiter at the Uni for awhile, be inspired by the learning around me.

And wear my tights and skirt in style :p

Can I do it?

Think of all the tights and socks to wear!!! :)


This post has been written in conjunction with ghd


So, I like purple. Always have. I remember I had a cardigan once my Aunty knitted me. It was purple, and warm, and I wore it everywhere. :) When I got to choose the colours for my room, I went for lilac. I was stoked when the bouquets for my sister’s wedding had purple ribbons. It goes on.

There’s a lot less purple in my wardrobe these days, but I still have a bunch in the accessories department (gotta have some sparkle in my mostly grey and black clothing! You’d think I lived in Melbourne or something.) Like the Butterfly clip above.

Purple tights

Many pairs of purple tights have been in my life.

Hello Kitty Pants!

And of course Hello Kitty AND Purple? I’m in!

But it was 25% off!

Or this favourite lingerie set of mine, Pleasure State :)

Purple Glittle Jesus

And there was that short lived affair with the Purple Glitter Jesus Moneybox. (JESUS SAVES!!!!) How is he going, Hannah?

So, if I was to get a ghd to replace my old hair straightener, it would HAVE to be purple. Like the Purple Peacock above. Then I’d KNOW it was mine ;)

What’s your go to colour??

Phillips Air Fryer
Hey look, no oil!

I’ve been getting oodles of hits for certain posts on this site. Most recently, it’s been for the post about Go the fuck to sleep, and for my once over of the aircooker. So, it seems like lots of people are googling something of interest and clicking through to see what they can find, and coming to my ramblings about it.

I know I’ll do the some. Ebay for something, google away looking for info, find a review site like personalopinion.co.uk, tech sites, some blogs, compare prices around the place and reach a decision about whether to get something, and how much I’m willing to pay… Putting different weights on different opinions, with blogs that I know for their honesty in reviews probably weighing in more than those with glowing opinions on everything they see. Same with review sites, I want to know the good and the bad, so I can work out if the bad is something I can live with!

There’s also the issue of the ridiculous dollar discrepancy, and how easy it is to buy so cheap online, Myer might have to do more than up the staffing in its flagship store to lure me into buying certain things online. Especially things like electronics which I KNOW I can get cheap online. Maybe they will stay my go-to for tights, and for clothes that need trying on, but for things where I know my size (repeat buys, most things other than jeans) it’s so easy just to click through and pay with paypal, and have it delivered from the other side of the world for less than the cost of going to the store in person and dealing with the shopping centre…

How about you? How have your browsing and impulse-buys been going with the strong dollar and easy access to paypal?


Oh, Hi Canberra winter.

Yes, temperature of minus 6.5. APPARENT TEMP -9.7. And still minus two when I left for the gym at six am.

Canberra Winter

A frost.

Obstacles on the walk to work at 8:30 in the morning.

And these clothes are clearly not substantial enough. Cute, but failing to warm me.

(I should add that only HALF the electric blanket gave up. Much snuggling required.)
