Okay so being home isn't all that bad.....aside from the freezing cold weather and new job (argghhhh I kinda hate the full time gig....no I'm gonna be honest and I say I would much rather have the money to go where I want and do what I want without the job) its pretty damn wonderful that I can escape on the weekends and meet up with my beloved sisters and friends.
Even though its a 3.5 hour drive to get back to Sydney.....the time flew....... sharing conversations about the new job and plans for future travel and business ventures.....it was enough to make me forget that I was only 1 week into a 2 term full time job. So at 9:30pm we (Niva, Sia and Pulu) met for coffee and spent the next three hours talking and laughing about everything and nothing.

We had enough time to share some pics from the holiday and then  we managed to get a few hours sleep before getting up early to make our eyelash appointment (fake eyelashes are the best! all you need is some bronzer and you're good to go!) and then jumped on train to get to city to meet up with Jadey to have some lunch (heartbroken that we couldn't stay for her party....but I had to get back for work >,< ).

I wanted to be warm and comfortable so I wore my yellow converse shoes ($25) that I picked up in California. Basic black tights ($7), my sisters scarf from Forever 21 ($8) and old floral shirt that I have also worn here previously as well as my jacket from Kmart ($19 I think) worn here.....I basically have a few favourite things that I just love to wear....so I wear them.

Happy 21st Birthday Jadey (center)

So we ate and we were merry......Ain't no place like home.

Big Love,

Hey Jiji.... yeah my eyelashes are short and boring and I got some fake lashes before America so I it cost me $30 and it took like 5 mins to put on....seriously the BEST THING I could ever have done....no mascara or runny lines....just clean freshness and Im ready to go...I think you should DO IT!!!
