Swagger Like Us

Seeing this photo of Victoria Beckham for her new Emporio Armani campaign makes me want to run to Myer and stock up on new lingerie. I've just finished my shopping ban and i have to say i'm pretty proud of myself. I've managed to save $600 from not doing any impulse shopping and my bank account and wardrobe are looking better for it. i just had my hair straightened with GHD's today for the first time and i must admit that i love the bounce it gave my hair. My hair actually swung in the wind and sat right back afterwards so that's very impressive. I'm considering splurging on a GHD straightener in July as i don't want to make any big purchases right now. Hot on the heels of GHDs is a new crush i've developed in the form of the Samsung G600 in elegant pink and Samsung P520 [Giorgio Armani phone]. The P520 is probably the only touch screen phone i'm interested in purchasing as it's chic, classy and elegant; pretty much everything you'd expect from a Giorgio Armani designed item.
This is probably going to be the most stressful week for me so far since this semester started. But i must admit that i have started on a good note and i guess positive thinking is probably what has helped me the most. I haven't reached for a cup of Gloria jeans coffee nor have i made any for myself at home. I'm bent on staying on this positive streak for as long as i can muster the enthusiasm to. I'm even faking my own excitement by looking at pictures i love daily and repeating positive mantras to myself to keep me in the mood.
Even though i only had about 4 hours of sleep on Sunday night, i was up at 5.30am Monday morning and got to uni at 8am to do some work at the library before attending all the appointments i had for the day. Due to this early start, i'll definately be hitting the sheets early. My health drive is also going great and i'm proud to admit that i've actually lost 2kg! Yup, that's like 100kg in my books because i know how extra difficult it is for me to lose weight.
This weekend is the Shop Til You Drop fashion show which i'm attending with friends and i'm very excited as i haven't attended a fashion show since 2007. But as with the territory, i'm having to worry about what to wear from my wardrobe and i've decided to stick to the casual chic look because i'm not interested in making a ridiculous purchase just for a show; plus i'm very excited about recession dressing. The lovely item that would be added to my wardrobe would probably be a blazer. I've been considering getting a tuxedo blazer in black or just a regular blazer in navy blue. I'm yet to decide on which to invest to but i'm sure either one would make my wardrobe sing.
Currently on repeat are: Lollipop remix feat. Kanye West, Director by Avant, What Is It by Baby Bash feat. Kingston and Crazy In Love by Beyonce feat. Jay-Z. Y'all have a good week and i'll certainly keep y'all up with the innings and shindings.....
