Purple Cat?

So...i don't really know anything about cats but i saw this picture online. Are there actually purple cats in existence? Like some sort of rare breed? Or did someone just decide to dye their cat's fur purple so it'll look "different". I remember some girl that used to be in the girl group Danity Kane dyed her dog's fur some odd colour; it might have been blue or so...

Me & My Laptop

I have a confession to make: i think i've developed a sentimental attachment to my laptop. You see, it happens to be one of the few items i have left from England and June would make it 2 years since i've owned it. Although we've had our ups and downs, although there's been times i wanted to chuch it out the window, it still holds a dear place in my heart and i can't bring myself to let it go. You might remember that i blogged about getting an Apple laptop many moons ago, well that plan has now been shelved because i've decided to use my laptop till it absolutely falls apart. Do you think it can survive another year or two? Here's to pushing it!!! I do know that i have to spend some money on getting a new battery and fixing the dvd drive but that can wait till after it's 2nd birthday...

Loving & Hating My Hair

Those of you who read this post might have felt that my ranting ended there or that i've gotten over it; i'm sorry to break your heart but i haven't so if you couldn't stand it then, here's your chance to close the page before i begin ranting part 2!!!
For those of you who chose to stay on and read, thank you mucho!!! You must be very tired of hearing this by now but i really envy Amber Rose and Solange Knowles! It takes a lot of courage to rock a bald head or a baby afro. It's not only about having the right face shape to pull it off but also about having the right swagger. On the 3rd of October 2009, i relaxed/ chemically straightened my hair and decided that i was going to attempt transitioning to chemically-free hair. You see, as much as i absolutely adore having bone straight hair I always hated the fact that in a couple of weeks i would need to retouch my roots again. This wasn't much of a worry when i lived in England because the lady who did my hair was AMAZING and her salon was about 30 minutes away from me. So it was always a breeze until i moved down to Australia. The first black hair stylist i met not only fried my hair but also my scalp in an attempt to relax my hair. I was so pissed off because the front of my hair became really damaged and i had to get braids installed.
Anyone who knows me would tell you that i get bored really easily and i'm not much of a fan of having extensions in my hair for a long time because i love to feel my hair on my weekly wash days. Herein lies the problem, i currently have braids in and it is absolutely driving me bonkers! I just want it out right this very moment because it is affecting my sanity. I've had it in for 6 weeks now and i really don't know if i can take it anymore. But if i take it out, i'm faced with another dilemms, what to do with my hair. I don't want to rebraid it so i have the option of relaxing it myself or dealing with two textures (my roots and my relaxed hair). The problem with two textures especially on short hair is a lack of styling options. Let's not even mention the dreaded breakage which is enough to give me heart palpitations! So you now understand why i envy these girls.

Acne Printet Leggings

I really really wish there was a black version of this Acne Printet leggings! How cool is it? A black version would have quickly shot up to the top of my wish list for Winter!

How I'd Like To Wear A Shirt

I must admit that i do get a tad jealous when i see people wearing their shirts tucked into their skinnies because i love how it looks and i've always dreamed of wearing a shirt like that. I especially love it on girls with smaller boobies because it never looks like the twins are being suffocated in there. Ya know? But my tummy is always in the way of giving this a go ~_~

Hunter Carnaby Tall Wellington Boots

Remember the Jimmy Choo wellies i blogged about in December? Well, i have no intention of buying them because they're about AUD$600! As much as i think they're pretty cool, i'm not one to wear wellies in the first place so spending that amount on them is bonkers! But as we seem to have a bit of the great British weather here in NSW, Australia, it might be a very good idea for me to invest in a pair of wellies at some point and that's where these Hunter Carnaby wellies come into play. At 139 pounds, i think it is a great replacement financially and style-wise for the Jimmy Choo version as i've always hated the look of plain rubber. This one does mimick the snake skin and i must admit i can picture myself wearing this with a blazer or parka on a rainy day in Spring! Need i say more, click here to get yourself a pair!

Je Ne Sais Quoi...

I spent the most part of yesterday and today studying as we're currently in the recess week and when i get back to uni, i've got 2 tests in the same week and i need to be prepped for them. But i had to take an hour break from studying to refresh and i spent 20 minutes doodling the above picture! What do you think of it and what's your best part? My favourite is definitely the eiffel tower! There's just something about the eiffel tower that usually pulls me in and makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Or maybe it's just about the idea of France and Paris and how much i'd love to go there and go wine tasting in Bordeaux, spend summer in Montpellier and winter in Paris. Oh, i almost forgot to mention shopping in Paris as well. Just thinking about it is making me get all gooey over here so i'm going to stop. Have a nice day ^_^

Jaeger Catwalk Shoe Boots

Did you like the Opening Ceremony boots from yesterday? Can i tempt you with something a bit similar? If you didn't like the fold-over look of the Opening Ceremony boots then you'll appreciate the simplicity of this one. It is much cheaper at 199 pounds but a little bit higher at 4.75". I actually prefer these Jaeger boots to the ones from yesterday mainly because of the peep toes and the lace detail on it and you can snag a pair right here!

Opening Ceremony Peep Toe Shoe Boots

I don't know about you guys, but these boots look pretty cool to me. I love anything that looks a bit odd but still stylish and doesn't scream Autumn 2010. I love the fact that the heels are chunky at 4" and by now i need not tell you that the probability of me falling flat on my face in these Open Ceremony boots is pretty high. But, if you've got 280 pounds to spare and don't mind investing in them, please click here :)

Bee Looks Cute

This has got to be one of those rare occasions where Beyonce's attempt to look cute actually works and i really like it. I like everything from the dress to her flats and those details on her purse. I'm wondering if the additions on her purse are from a diy job or if it actually came like that.

La Mer Wristwatch

I came across this La Mer wristwatch whilst browsing online at Singer22 and it retails for US$110. It actually reminds me of a bracelet that Courtney Cox wore in an issue of InStyle Magazine Australia and i quite fancied the bracelet at the time. I'm not really into leather wristwatches because i sweat easily and i noticed in the past that the area where the watch was on my wrist used to itch after a while. But i'm more than willing to make an exception for this so it is automatically going into my Wishlist...

How Can I Make Something Similar?

I'm sure it's fairly obvious that i have no intentions whatsoever on actually purchasing this Balmain jacket. Now that we've cleared that up, i would like to know any creative ideas you guys might have so i can have a jacket that looks like this. Remember how i've been looking for my holy grail jacket that is trans-seasonal? Well, this jacket already fits the bid for something that i would want to own. So any ideas on how i can achieve this including the best materials, accessories etc is very much welcome :)
