m.i.a

Yes folks, it appears I have been missing in action for the last few days but not to worry, I am alive.

I'm just not well. My fantastic wedding weekend produced two epic hangovers which then morphed into a flu which has had me more or less bed-ridden for the last two days.

I feel terrible since I've alread had so many sick days from work and also extremely worried because my 10K race is on Sunday. Yup. I have NO idea how I am going to pull that one off. I'm too weak to run or exercise so my hopes are that as long as I do my strength training and my physio stretches, AND if I feel 100% by Saturday, I should be able to do it. Here's hoping! It would majorally suck to have four months worth or training and angst go down the drain. Damn you body!!

Anyhoo, I will put up pictures from the weekend tomorrow or Friday (they are on my work computer) and focus one some other tidbits today.

First of all I want to thank MizzJ for the lovely award!



Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

A package from eBay came today - so it was lucky I was at home sick to receive it - and I'm fairly impressed with my findings. I didn't take photos of everything (though I will) but I got a sweet La Rok motorcycle jacket, a nude 3.1 Philip Lim blouse and a Chloe lilac sweater adorned with chains, among other things.

The most amazing find was this Liliu seafoam tissue-thin leather jacket.



I snapped it up for an amazing $19 which is even MORE amazing when you factor in the fact that the tags show it's real price: $1080!!!



Now why anyone would pay that much for this jacket, I am not sure. All I know is that I got a fab deal because it has lots of "shock-wear," such as discoloration on the shoulders, faint stains here and there, etc. But I expected it to be a lot worse than it was so all I can say is how very pleased I am to have such a sweet leather jacket in one of my most favourite colours in the world (note to Designers out her: please make more seafoam green stuff! I mean, it says it's Aqua but in person it is very much seafoam) - how delightful for spring!

I had to go out to the store today to get some more cold meds and protein shakes, so I slipped that on over my new Calyso tank top, Hudson jeans and new Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent sandals - matched perfectly!

Also have to mention I got Daisy Chain Dreams' Eiffel Tower necklace in the mail today and I LOVE it! Big props to Daisy Chain, and kudos for the nautical keychain too - I'd been meaning to get a new one since my Hollywood Tower Hotel keychain broke recently (totally not worth the $10, damn you Disney!)



Hope you're all having a bright and sunny day as I am! Just minus the flu, of course...

haha thanks! I feel like I have a booze baby in my belly thanks to the weekend antics but I'll take it :)

MizzJ said...

The jacket looks great and that's an AMAZING deal!! I totally agree, seafoam is a totally underutilized color.

As for the run, my trainer recommended not doing any exercise at all this week so that your body is well rested for the run! I'm so nervous and am going to Anton's on Friday to stock up on pasta haha.

sorry to hear you were sick, hope you're better for your race. i too was hit hard with a stomach flu which felt like the worst hangover ever. but better now :)

I love those turquoise sandals they are to die for. And thanks for your comment.. still think size doesnt matter as long as you own what you wear. I sometimes think, maybe I shouldnt wear this or that.. but I live on the beach so that doesnt leave me many choices no? And then I just say, well, eFF it, and go do it my way. =)
