You might remember me

Just poking my head in to say... hi. I've been completely stolen from the blogosphere by the Olympics, of all things. If I'm not watching it, I'm obsessively reading up on the latest news. My old sport swimming is always my favourite (my swimming career peaked at age 11 though), but it felt wrong that we didn't sweep up the gold medals in the pool this time! I also like diving and gymnastics, but whatever they're showing, I'll watch it. It's equal parts inspiring and depressing - here are people performing amazing physical feats while I'm on the couch eating chips and/or chocolate.


As a result of my Olympics obsession, I'm barely keeping on top of uni work, so I haven't got much time for the old blog or returning comments. I really need to turn that TV off and catch up.


Luckily I picked up a 3 pack of Buenos for $3 to help me get through this. I have already made my way through one pack, not that I have much to show for it. For an example of better productivity, check out my girl Wailam's copy of a Dali painting.

  1. Ahhh you're the complete opposite to me - I haven't been watching any Olympics, which is such a shame!
    Haha been focusing on my school work instead :P
    But I know what you mean about pigging out whilst watching these incredibly fit people do all of these amazing things with their bodies. I do that all the time when I'm watching the Biggest Loser LOL
    I LOVE THE LITTLE HUMAN SKELETON THING IN YOUR ROOM OH MY GOD I WANT ONE :O

    1. Well obviously you have your priorities sorted!
      I put Billy Bones together from one of those weekly magazine series, haha.

  2. I'm only interested on the ones you've listed and running as well. It's such a shame though. Diving is always on so late or early! It's the event I'm post excited about and yet I still haven't anything of it on tv. I love buenos. They literally melt in your mouth. It's so sooooo so good <3

  7. Lovely shirt! I wish I was an enthusiastic about the olympics as you, but being in the USA makes watching live events all the more difficult (unless I'm up really really early haha) this time around. I definitely loved the first week's events more than this week, and I similarly had my "couch moments" with a bag of popcorn- while all the athletes did rigorous physical work for me. Looking forward to the closing ceremony though! x

    1. The time zone thing is bad for us this time as well - all the exciting finals are on at about 4am, no chance I'm getting up for that haha.

  10. I love your tee. I'm also obsessing over the Olympics lately. I swear, back when I was 11 I thought I was going to be an olympic swimmer too ahah... and then I stopped swimming because I was scared of getting broad shoulders LOL.

    1. I didn't stop in time for my shoulders... so now I've got man shoulders without an Olympic swimming career to show for it!

    1. At my shopping centre! To be honest I never wear the glasses if I can help it...

  13. Oh, Kinders are SO good!
    I was JUST thinking that same thing about the olympics the other day- I was watching the traithlon and eating chips/crisps while vegetating on the couch... I love watching whatever's on. It really is amazing what they do! (And I get a little emotional sometimes when someone wins or loses).

    1. I was getting teary at times too, I don't know when I got so emotional!

  14. I've sadly fell victim to the olympics too! Ive watched everything because seeing team gb has just given me an overwhelming sense of national pride. I honestly don't know what I'm going to watch when it's all over :( xxx

  22. I've been watching olympic games too which is WEIRD because I'm always the one who hides under a blanket with a laptop while the rest of the fam is watching sports lol. Swimming is my favourite too!

    1. Yes to Tom Daley, no to the fact that he was born in 1994. Haha, oh dear.

  24. tehe! I am sad because I only had the chance to watch a very small amount of the Olympics! I hope they were wonderful! :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh Jane, I know how you feel. Every once in a while when I was able to tune into the TV and watch the Olympics I was absorbed. I looooove the Olympics, even though I'm not great at performing any sports :p Sadly/luckily (not sure which to pick) the Olympics are over now... (the opening and closing ceremonies were both so wonderful!!)

    1. I'm not sure if I'm sad or glad the Olympics are over either, I was starting to feel a bit burnt out from being so invested!

  28. 3 pack of Buenos for $3?

    OMG JEALOUS! I love Buenos. They are so nice! And I haven't watched any Olympics at all :(

    ReplyDelete
  29. haha good luck with the uni work! I hadn't been watching much of the Olympics to be honest, but it's so good when watching with a group of people! sport is not really my thing at all but somehow it gets so exciting when you've got a group of people commentating haha.

  30. haha kinder bueno and the olympics are the most perfect excuses not that blog! i myself have been missing online, just busy fixing up my photographer website and will be touring art galleries hoping to be one of their resident photographers. it's so much work and kinda sad i haven't been posting enough, but it really serves the purpose of my blog anyways- if that makes any sense. i'll be in Brisbane for four days end of October, and although you reside in Sydney, i am hoping there is a slight chance you'll be around my area. would love to see you one day x

    1. Hope all that's going well for you! Unfortunately I won't be leaving Sydney at all during that time - it's when I've got to start bunkering down for exams :(

  31. I absolutely love your top! The Olympics were pretty cool weren't they? :) Thanks for your comment about the Lip tars, I was actually thinking of buying NSFW funnily enough, it looks like a really intense red! But, like you said, they're not exactly practical for reapplication :P xx

  32. I LOVE Kinder chocolate, it's delicious! I must say though, my favorite bar is Twix
