It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you.

There’s been a lot going on lately. In the past weeks which I have been absent from this here blog I have done many many things. I have been to a halloween party, two exhibitions and partied the weekend away in the city. Let’s start at the beginning.

I went to a halloween party at my friend Lynne’s house, she’s from Chicago. I posted about Halloween last time and said I would show you a photo of my Lisa Left Eye Lopes costume. Here it is:

It was a success, however, in the process of what I think was everyone trying to be original with their costumes, there ended up being four Left Eyes. FOUR! You’d think there’d be a lot of Michael Jackson’s, Amy Winehouses, but nope, Left Eye it was. Luckily amongst the four Left Eye’s, there was one from each TLC era, so that was a plus! More

Halloween Costumes and Book Fairs

So all week I’ve been putting things together for my Halloween Costume for next Saturday. Last year I went as a Mathlete, see photo below.

It was a huge success, but this year the theme is dead musicians, so I’m going as Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. That’s right the coolest member of TLC. I’m channeling the 90s Left Eye so I will be in bright colours, a huge hat, oversized clothes and doc martens with scrunchie socks. CAN’T WAIT!

Check out my Halloween Costume post over on Bookish Ardour.

Hopefully I’ll be looking something like this: (Left Eye on the right)

I will post photos after the event. This weekend I went to the Lifeline Book Fair in Gymea. I always head straight for the collectibles and rare finds section of the book fair and try to find as many classic copies of books I love. This year was no different and I found some pretty good books let me tell you. An awesome copy of Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, a classic copy in a little cover of Treasure Island, a classic well-worn copy of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and some great gift’s for friends/family. I found an old school Kodak Photography Guide for my dad, a copy of Phantom of the Opera for my nan, a classic copy of Pride and Prejudice for my friend J-Dub and the beginnings of my Secret Santa gift. It was a great trip and I go every year, it’s always worth it. The money goes to a good charity and I get awesome cheap books/records. If you ever have a chance to go to one I highly recommend it.

I also went bed shopping today. I’m upgrading finally and can’t wait. But anyway, about to go out for dinner with an old friend, always a plus on a Sunday night when you’re in denial about going to school tomorrow. Hope you all had a great weekend and please leave a comment with your best Halloween costumes, or what you did this weekend!
