One of my favourite blogs is Death Wears Diamond Jewellery. Sarah Hannah has this amazing writing style - a true, natural and quick prose that flips through experiences in a way that makes you nod your head and wonder 'how did she know?' I love her eclectic mix of internet trawling finds, and I hope she doesn't mind that I am borrowing a format of hers for what will hopefully become a regular feature (in an attempt to bring some structure to my own inadequate sporadic blogging style).
Listening… to Montreal band Stars. So very excited to be seeing them play in London soon. I saw them play in Sydney, and they were amazing. In an uncharacteristic act of slightly drunken boldness I ran up on stage to get the towel they'd used. I was then stuck with a giant white towel for the rest of the evening, but it was a victory symbol that was by no means going to get discarded on King St.
Reading… Georgette Heyer novels, and a biography of Lord Byron. Also Girl With a Dragon Tattoo. And twitter. No need for newspapers when you have Twitter.
Watching… Entourage and Top Gear. I'm just as surprised by the latter as everyone else. Also people watching. People in tubes especially.
Buying… Shoes and more shoes. And an amazing lilac-y satchel bag that is big and unstructured, but remains a satchel none the less.
Wearing... Camel coloured trousers, oversized white tops, tucked in and belted. Brogues. Red blazers tucked into tutus with tights. Vintage boots.
Wanting… Burberry. Shearling. Aviator. Amazingness.
Trying… to learn to cook. Current status: one batch of ANZAC biscuits, one batch of chocolate brownies. This does not a cook make, just an oompaloompa from too much self-sampling.
Loving… Hyperbole and a Half. Some serious LOLs moments here. Especially the Why I'll Never Be An Adult.
Writing… Getting back in to freewriting. Pushing aside murky layers of distraction, waiting for that random word.
Inspired by… This week? Clearly Death Wears Diamond Jewellery. Also by random acts of thoughtfulness in the form of little presents put in my room (Maria).
