I love this photo of Susie in Stockholm, snapped by Rumi of Fashiontoast.
More Stockholm diary photos here.

Today was such a great day. I hosted my very first clothes swapping event and snagged the sweetest fitting black blazer, some battered black skinnies and some other great pieces. And the best part? I wasn't even expecting to find anything I liked because I dress like no one else in this city. I haven't been this happy in probably over a month. Pictures to come.

P.S. Yesterday I went indoor skydiving for my new freelance writing job. It was mad fun.

I am all over this Alexa Plum Loopy Leopard blah blah blah Mulberry like salmon on rice at Yo! Sushi.

I haven't wanted much lately but I'm feeling particularly greedy today since I've spent the last 24 hours getting exactly what I want, i.e. I just got offered a freelance writing job and my latest project is getting huge help from awesome friends I met while working at my last job. As a result, here's a Polyvore set of some more o my must-haves.

Behind the scenes of one of my latest little projects.

I wanna be a stylist, man.

Kesh has a new print. I dig. A lot. Only a Trinidadian could be that rad. :p It's pretty affordable too - even the recently rebelliously unemployed like me can have one. But no. I am thinking to grab the rest of the money and run. I've been dreaming of spontaneous sabbaticals...Like..can you go on a writing retreat when you're not really even a writer?

I don't have blue hair anymore.
I don't have listerine anymore either. haha...
I'm bad, but not that bad.
FUN FACT: my dad's a pilot and he can get stopped from flying if he so much as gargled too much of that shit. He's all picking fights with my mum these days about shopping for the alcohol-free kind).

Really lovin' this woman right now, especially since we now share a third nasal opening (it's good to be bullringed again now that I'm miles from an office).

As usual, The Fox and I are not friends tonight. He still hasn't quite come to terms with the fact that I actually am a social alcoholic (I hate people who laugh and nod and say they are too) and it bums him out. So I've left him a box of donuts in the fridge with an apologetic Post-It note attached and Rehab tonight is at my parent's place. I'm updating my CV, changing my Facebook name and snuggling up on the sofa with the girls watching Kendra's E! True Hollywood Story.

FUCK ME, DO YOU KNOW WHAT'S SOOO GOOD? Spicy tomato and rice soup. Staying true to my new 'life's a bitch but I can handle myself now that I own a flat' stance, I brought over my own canned food. Mother dearest still pried it from my hands to heat on the stove, though, and made sure I had every last drop! That and tea with cardamom spiced milk just does it for me these days. I'm losing hella weight, though, obviously.

I just had a really easy, breezy talk with Panda (it's been a long time coming), and I actually have no ill feelings towards his new girlfriend. I get great vibes from her. I hope he reads this. I mean that.

Yesterday I quit my job.
I feel like this right now....

Last thing you ate: home made pasta

Last thing you drank: chai tea

Last thing you watched: Isao Takahata's 'Grave of the Fireflies'. And I cried and cried and cried. There was a thunderstorm up in my bed last night.

Last thing you bought: some takeout from Bricco Cafe - THE best fast food Italian in town, I have to say. Just waiting until it hits 6.38pm so I can eat it!!! (fasting)
Last thing you returned: An Arabic phrase book
Last thing you dreamt of: running into my now ex-boss at a chinese restaurant cum bowling alley

Last thing you fought with someone about: Honestly? I can't remember the last time I fought with someone.

Last thing you regretted: nothing, but I was thinking if I still had my job, I would probably be able to go to London in October like I had planned.  

Last thing you forgot: how much more exciting life is when you're just wingin' it (yeah, I say that now since I only got paid a week ago)
Last thing you wrote: a resignation letter
Last text you received: I dunno because I lost my phone. AGAIN! And I knew it was going to happen so I didn't splash out a new one, thank FUCK!

Last thing you laughed at: The Fox telling a serious story but with very cute, very flawed English.

Last thing you read: I'm reading a book that's banned here called 'Abu Dhabi: Oil and Beyond'. It's very enlightening. My ex-boss lent it to the team to read hoping it would shed some light on where we're based and where we're writing about. It does, but I no longer work there.

Last thing you felt proud about: having the guts to leave and branch out even before I had a plan. Stupid. But exciting.

Last thing you considered: teaching Creative Writing...

Last person you spoke to: I'm holed up on the couch with my mum catching up. She just got back from trips to Canada and Chicago.
Last thing you saw that you wanted: Kelis' style!

Last thing you stole: some small food items from my mom's kitchen. It's going to be a tough couple months.

Last thing you realised: that I'm actually doing well for someone my age and that I shouldn't freak out so much. I'm 21! I'm just getting started!

Last thing you decided: to take on a couple one-off jobs from my adoring mother until I find my feet. I will now be my mum's personal trainer three times a week, and will double as her style consultant and wardrobe sorter.

Friday night in.
My idea of piggin' out.

The fam's off in Toronto setting up my little brother for college so The Fox and I are vacationing in their apartment on the weekends, throwing dinner parties, playing Truth or Dare and cards, watching The Tudors and The Hills and fighting about whether one particular time is better to go to the gym rather than stay home and watch a dumb movie. He's asleep on the sofa and I'm chowing on my lonesome with some back to back Beverly Hills 90210 - something The Russian boat dweller lent me. And I swear it was purely coincidence that I started watching it just in time for 90210 Day.

I am thinking of quitting my job, not only because my bosses don't like/trust me, but because now that I know that, I get a feeling it's a great time to dive into all my purely passion driven projects, even if they involve next to no money. I'll probably go consult Susan Miller after this.

[UPDATE] Lo and behold, Susan Miller says this month is a great month to quit my job and change my focus in my career sector; even study again!

I've been really out of the blogosphere and fashion loop for quite a while now and I actually find it refreshing. But allow me to adore a teensy bit of what I've missed... these insane DI$COUNT fingertips selling at Meadowlark. They have a gorgeous guest blogger collection but all the jewelry at Meadowlark is just quite simply fab.
