Gasp it’s been ages since I’ve posted, all thanks to exams. But the end is nigh, it will be over on Monday then freedom! On Friday during my exam, my friend commented that I had one of the strangest problems someone encounters during exams. Usually its a tummy ache, memory loss, writer’s block, the table is wobbly (which is usually fixed with paper) yada yada. I however had the sun shining down upon my paper, reflecting all the white so I could barely see what I was writing or reading. Boy did my eyes burn. I had to do the paper with a booklet shielding my paper from above and the other furiously scribbling away.
During periods like these, all you feel like doing is returning to the basics. Black and white can make a pretty good combo (: oreo knows it.

YES first paper down, two more to go. The tragedy and confusion I felt during today’s paper was made up for in an epic proportion of thai food. Green curry chicken, yellow curry crab, seafood tom yum etc etc. Wonder what comfort foods I will come up with for my next few papers. Maybe a cupcake that comes in peach, mint or yellow colours? Well that was what I dressed for when I received my yellow circle skirt in the mail, reminds me of the paper cups that cupcakes come in. I went on a pastel overload, just like what I did with the thai food 😉
And dear Poncho has conjunctivitis, we had to test it with fluorescent stains. The vet mistook a green mark on her nose as a previous staining test but I explained it was because I dropped a highlighter on her nose a few days back. And soon enough, the fluorescent stain from her eye started leaking out her nose and J remarked how this would be an excellent look for trick-or-treating but we’re too old and we missed halloween! A corgi with neon green leaking out her eyes and nose, can you imagine?

Sometimes I really ponder if swot vac is useful because I tend to take it for granted (bad joanna) but I’m always grateful for it. Time is of the essence and I need all the time I can get before exams on Monday. Brain fried… On a lighter note, today is my birthday! Which of course I spent buried in my notes at the library, plus J and I have to nurse Poncho’s infected eye. Remember to give your pets worming tablets and flea/tick protection everyone! Spring is here and Summer is around the corner and all these little buggers are coming out from their hide-holes. Protect your pets! With all these in mind, I more or less forgot my birthday was approaching but Jeff manages to give me little surprises throughout the week!
Monday: most beautiful birthday present ever
Wednesday: strawberry cakes and frangipani tart surprise while studying
Friday: surprise dinner somewhere in crown?
He’s the best (: Hurray! I’m one lucky girl. Will be sure to take lots of peektures tomorrow, wait for the update. In the meantime, the photos above were meant to bring a cheery mindset amidst the dull study period. Bright red and polka dots, kinda reminds you of minnie mouse huh. Back to work!

I am having such a slow day of studying, I have to speed up but there is a never ending amount of pathology. Bones, joints, muscles, cardio, circulatory, endocrine, lymphatics yada yada yada. And Poncho is having the time of her life napping on the couch in various awkward positions like only a dog can, giving weird expressions. By the way, if anyone is interested, please check out my Facebook here! I’m trying to clear out my wardrobe before I move house so I’m selling clothes, shoes and other knick knacks for low prices. It has stuff from quirky circus, charlotte ronson, sports girl, topshop etc.
The above photo are from my backlog, just on the way to church last week when the sun was just at the right angle. I love the rosy blush of terracotta, and this blouse is adorned with bows in the front with a button back. How quaint. Have a good weekend everyone, and all the best studying to those who have upcoming exams!
I love gardens, maybe you can tell by now from all my past posts but the shape of trees and the colour of the grass just mesmerises me. I especially appreciate the ones in Melbourne because the grass is dry and there’s hardly an ants. Both of which are abundant in the motherland so getting a wet patch on your shorts from sitting is not a great idea. People wonder who is this strange girl who dresses up to walk her dog, yes it’s me, but why not? It’s one of the few times I get to go out and not get blood on my clothes or have to wear covered shoes in case a scalpel blade drops. So here I am, in polka dots! With my room mate Poncho (: In my opinion, there’s always a way to incorporate dots into an outfit. A headband, a pair of shoes, a skirt, shorts, a dress! Hope you like the birds I paired with my outfit, owls (found this necklace at a market!) and lovebirds. Enjoy.
Hey all, did anyone go for the Finders Keepers Market over the weekend? Me! It was held at the REB at Carlton Gardens, like I needed another reminder that exams were near. But upon further inspection, I never noticed how beautiful the insides of the hall could be when you’re not sitting an exam. The market featured stalls that specialised in quaint handy crafts, one of a kind trinkets, artistic wonders with live music and food to boot! It was a treasure trove of quirkiness, vintage and colours. I treated myself to a glass bottle and some hand-drawn eye candy. There was this rad stall where these two guys collected old vintage trunks and hand held luggage cases and converted them into speakers!
As for food, J and I snacked on nori chips while walking about, whoever thought of putting seaweed on hot cripsy chips is a genius (you can see it on instagram @annaandponcho, feel free to follow me!). Did anyone buy anything from the market? Send me some pics, I would love to see them (: Back to the study table for now, enjoy the photo explosion coming up!

Now that my pathology test is out of the way, I’m gonna use this break time before I get back to my case studies to gush about this designer I stumbled upon! ALEXANDER TEREKHOV! His designs give off the air of old-school glamour that was born from the mixture of european and oriental flair. So lady-like, but yet adventurous with a whimsical flair through it. There is this colour gradient going through his clothes as each look comes down the runway, it’s amazing how the colour scheme progresses. How I would like to get my hands on one but Moscow is really far from Melbourne ): Even celebrity bloggers like Miroslava Duma is seen in his designs. Doesn’t he just make the world a more beautiful place?
The photos coming up are taken from the website:
Here are a few favourites of mine! Tell me what you think.
p.s I have discovered instagram! You can follow me at @annaandponcho AND I’m selling some clothes/shoes from my exploding wardrobe that are new and secondhand so have a look if you’re interested at http://www.facebook.com/annaandponcho
