Is this thing on?

According to blogger it is been 14 months since I posted; I feel like if I could have held out just a little more it would have been some sort of record!

Unfortunately life just got a bit too busy with working long hours and studying my masters leaving me with very little time for blogging/social life/personal hygiene but I still read so many blogs and miss posting so here I am trying to revive this beast!

Between all the work of 2011/2012 I have had a great time, I got to travel to China and Hong Kong a few times for work, Thailand for pleasure, hung out with the rockingest nephew around all of which have made life pretty damn good. I stuck a few photos I found on Instagram of some highlights of the past year which looking at now seems to basically reading, food and wine so that seems about right.

Please note B&W filter to disguise poor photog skills.

Back to Reality

Wow I haven't blogged in so long I actually forgot my password!

Anyway I am back from New York and recovering from post-holiday blues. I was pretty bad with photos but have uploaded a few of NYC and San Fran.

Had such an incredible time in NY and I think I donated pretty heavily to Bergdorf Goodman's bottom line. The McQueen exhibition at the MET was incredible, but unfortunately photos weren't allowed so you will just have to take my word for it.

...Now to catch up on everyone's blogs!

I faltered. I fell. But in my defense saving money is REALLY boring. I'm usually not a big fan of diffusion lines but I bit the bullet and bought this Dion Lee for Cue shirt dress yesterday. I tried to wear it with tights and a jacket to work today but I think I am still looking pretty inappropriate. Oh well I think it's cute anyway.

Hello My Name's Shannon and I am a Blackoholic

I finished my MBA! Ok thats a filthy lie I finished this trimester but good news is I dont have to spend every day ploughing through 10 hours at work then another 3 with my head in a book for a few weeks. Huzzah! So back to the blog I run.

My wardrobe seems very scarce at the moment but I am trying not to spend any money until I reach New York (so outfit posts will probably be mediocre at best). I am however, trying to wear more colour as my wardrobe pretty much consists of black and grey. This is my attempt for my work get-up today , I must have underestimated just how much black I wear because I have got 6 comments (its 9.45am) that its wierd to see me in colour.

Could I be an unintentional goth?! I'm not a cure fan so I think I'm in the clear.

Kachel Dress, Peter Morrissey for Big W (!) jacket, Necklace from markets, Calvin Klein Shoes and YSL ring

By the way I wanted to take these pics in little pavillion we have in our backyard but there are workers next door who could see so I had to resort to the dingy garden.

R & R

I actually had a day off yesterday (!!) so we went out for breakfast in the Italian Forum and wondered around the city enjoying the sun. It was a lovely relaxing day, it turned out to be a great way to recharge the batteries.

Me looking like a total tourist
They had an egg white omelette on the menu, so we both ordered it to be healthy but it turned out to be ridiculously bland....find the basil people!
Showing off his stamp from the previous night (classy).

To brighten up the place where I do all my work we bought some lilies and a wild lime candle, the candle smells delish!
Wearing Forecast dress, Gucci sunnies, Colette clutch, Avon necklace and Ysl Arty ring.

Fool's Paradise

Things have been mind numbingly boring for me at the moment, working long hours and studying at night. Usually my remedy would be some retail therapy but given that I am supposed to be saving for NYC and San Fran (8 weeks to go!) that is not an option.

So I did the next best thing....posted the things I want on here!
Peter Lang Cuff, Tom Ford Sunnies (how many pairs of sunglasses do I need?) Forever new leopard coat, Willow Existence Jacket, Asos Dress, Alexander Wang boots, Oscar De La Renta Necklace and Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil (in happy day)
