June...

Bought this fab crimplene maxi 

at my fave op shop...

I am totally not food motivated. Being a coeliac, vegetarian with several stupid allergies, I eat the same few things every day. 


But we went out for my gorgeous friend's birthday dinner to an amazing restaurant who were happy to modify their dishes just for me... 


Honey and port baked fig, with ginger and butterscotch ice cream, spiced apple and flowers. Edible frickin flowers. Oh My Gawd, I died and went to heaven. Best thing I have ever eaten.

And that was kinda the last three months. 
What with sickness, moving house and work, we've been pretty stupid busy. 

I'm struggling with my lacklustre approach to blogging at the moment. I can't force it, and I just don't have the free time that I once had, but I can't let go of it either. 

So please forgive me if this is all too self indulgent and boring. And as always, please forgive my lack of comments on your blogs. I try to keep up with reading my favourites, but it's always in the wee small hours of the morning, when I get a spare five minutes, and I'd rather leave no comment than something vapid and meaningless. It doesn't mean that I'm not interested and madly in love with you. I promise I am.

I hope you're all well and happy, cutting your frocks to age-appropriate lengths and rocking the safety pants.

Wow, three months packed into one amazing blog post. Your wardrobe is to die for!

Sue said...

Even if you only did a post a year I would still follow you. You have no time because spunkarse moved in, and you are forgiven. Love every fricken outfit, you are giddy with love and life, and I for one love it!! I do miss the shack :-)

Konad-licious said...

They are all so fabulous, I couldn't pick my favorite. And when you have a body like yours, then its a shame not to wear a mini. I am also super jealous you get to have a sudebiard just to store purses.

Trudie said...

Oh honey you are most glorious. You have had a lot going on. I'm glad though that you've popped in to show us what the last few months have looked like. Life is busy, crazy and most wonderfully exciting and colourful. If you don't have the time you don't have the time, but I do understand the feeling like you you don't want to let the blogging go,. I don't think any of us want to let you go. Are your itchy feet going to send you my way? It would be most wonderful. Stay beautiful and exciting.

P.s - I had to laugh you nearly became a food blogger with that one food pic and description. Sounds like. It was pretty intense and amazing.

We'll take what we can get love xx I quite like seeing every thing in one post xxx

Frocktasia said...

World's Worst Blogger? I do not agree, this post is glorious and well worth waiting for. Who decided that in order to be a contender for World's Best Blogger you need to drop a blog as often as you change your undercrackers anyway? Surely it should be more about quality than quantity. You stick with what feels right for you and what suits your new busy bee lifestyle with loverboy. Have an ace time on your future roadtrips, enjoy the new flat and keep rocking those spectacular get-ups. I will be waiting in anticipation for your next blog installment, however long it may take.xxx

awesomeness overload!!!!! Not really, you have an amazing way with putting outfits together.

Sheila said...

I'll take everything you post, and read it with delight, every time, Sarah! Whenever, no matter, no rush, no obligation. We all have lives and those come before blogs. Lovely to see you and the man enjoying yourselves so much - I hope both of you are feeling better! Cheers, Sheila

Citizen Rosebud said...

I am revived by your return. Love your style and drink up this whole season of you rocking.

Melanie said...

I was just pining for you and then, beep, there you are! How happy I am to see you. I'm sad to hear about the sickness part but I hope you are enjoying fine health in your NEW HOME - gaaa! that's exciting - especially drinking coffee from your new cup, may it runneth over.
All fantastic outfits, need I even say it? But it's the attitude in them that makes them groove.
I'm going through VOGOFF submissions and miss my favourite astrophysicist and time traveler. If Hettie shows up again, I'm sure I can find a place for her in this issue...
Hugs, Sarah! Boy Toy is looking mighty handsome (and healthy).
