I bought this floral dress at Brunswick Savers for $5.99 the other day. It was originally floor length but we cut it and I'm going to hem it tomorrow so it will be a little shorter when I've done that. I think its pretty cute but I really wanted a smaller floral print. I tried on this AMAZING floral dress at Jeanswest (of all places) today and it looked so good on but it was $70 and I don't really spend that much on clothes any more. It isn't on their website so I'll go back tomorrow and take a sneaky change room photo to show you all, maybe you will convince me to buy it because it really was amazing. The fun thing was the size 16 was too big and the 14 fit really good, even a little loose, its nice to go down a size, I think stopping eating McDonalds has helped but I don't have any scales so I am not sure if I have lost weight or if Jeanswest sizing is generous. I defiantly feel better going back to my normal diet rather than my stressed out time poor student diet of fast food. Today we had the yummiest lunch at this organic vegan cafe in the city, mmmm kidney beans I love you. I love how easy it is to find vegetarian food here, I never thought about it until I lived in Japan, I just thought it was easy everywhere, but now I know that's not true. I think we take it for granted here, but really the vegetarian options here are amazing. When I first became a vegetarian it wasn't as good as it is now (14 years ago) but even when it was "bad" it was good if you know what I mean. Henry and I have been doing a lot of baking and cooking lately instead of eating out. Henry made yummy vegetarian sheppard's pie the other night and I made a healthy vegetarian quiche with yoghurt instead of cream, which I think tastes better anyway. I hope I can continue with this healthy eating even when I go back to uni next week, but its so hard when I have no time and have loads of assignments to finish. Oh well we will see.
