Lately

It's been quiet around here, so here are some pictures from my phone. I'm loving my new iPhone for photos when I don't happen to have my camera - I always have it on me, it's unobtrusive, and the quality's not too bad. I still think people's compulsion to take pictures of everything and show them to everyone via the internet is a bit unnatural, but hey, I'm the one with the blog, so I can't really talk.


Wearing some sensible clothes for a meeting. These boots are destroying my feet (I thought the leather would stretch but it never did) but I paid so much money for them, damn it.


Hot dogs for lunch at El Loco, and garlic/cheese/honey toast (genius!) from Tom n' Tom's.


Nachos on a rainy Saturday when I went into the city and ate Mad Mex by myself, and a frozen yoghurt run.


Fancy breakfast: Ham and cheese croissant and caramel mudcake.


Anish Kapoor exhibition at the MCA - really good, go see it if you're around. I'm not usually into sculptures but some of his are really interesting and fun to look at.


Sydney on a nice afternoon before a catchup over dinner.


Giant bucket of mini-chocolates after a night out, thanks to Jenny.


More froyo, while YY and Jenny did some sort of makeup swap.


This giant, evil-looking black bird (doesn't look that big in the picture) yesterday in The Domain - it wouldn't fly away and was still there after we came out of the art gallery. And also the haircut I'd got in the morning (will show better pictures with the fringe lying properly!).


For brunch this morning - nutella and banana on toast. I'm making the most of fancy breakfast opportunities; when class starts again next week it'll be back to hurriedly shovelling cornflakes for me.

It's back to uni for me on Monday. The last week of holidays is always stressful, because there's so much pressure to cram as much fun as possible into those couple of days that it's always a disappointment. I'll be trying not to fall into that hole.

  1. Such perfect photographs as ever, Jane! I must get my hands on that toast from Tom n' Tom's. You're encouraging me more and more to save for a trip to Australia in the near future. (: Gosh I'm so jealous of your amazing photo composition skillz! x

  3. I definitely have the compulsion to take pictures of everything. Sadly I don't have a camera phone so I am lugging my DSLR baby around everywhere hahahha.

    Also, there is a trick I learned to stretching leather. Basically, you put on some thick socks, put on the shoes and then start blowdrying the shoes (not too hot though!). I haven't tried it myself but my friend has and she says it works?

    1. I've actually tried that, to no avail. I've even tried the rubbing alcohol on the inside of the shoe! Lesson learnt - don't size down on shoes, haha.

  10. I wish I could reach in for a slice of your banana toast. mmmm :D And I want an iphone just for the camera - is that wrong? ;)

    1. Not wrong, one of the main reasons for getting an iPhone was for the camera (definitely wasn't for the touchscreen, I have fat thumbs).

  11. I really love these photos! They're just so simple and honest. I'm going back to uni next week as well, and I am TERRIFIED. I haven't studied since 2011, as I took all of 2012 off to travel. Chemistry?! That's still a thing?!

  13. oh yum, your first fancy breakfast that included caramel mud cake is definitely my favourite type of breakfast, haha. also that garlic, cheese & honey toast sounds ridiculous but it could actually work and now i'm really curious!

  23. It's honestly incredible how impressive the picture quality is on the new iPhone! But I have to confess - you post some of the most delicious-looking food pictures of any blog I know. Seriously... It's an hour until my lunch break, and I'm dying.

  29. Oh, I just love all your breakfast photos. It's definitely hard to fit in fancy breakfast in the midst of uni work. So sad your summer vacation is already over! I agree that the last week before is always pretty stressful, but it's also kind of exciting to get back in the swing of things.

  30. Delicious food! I really like to jump into those pictures to eat them, hehee!
