So its only my second post and already i can see there is going to be problems because i have realised that i do way too much consuming and i have many, many opinions. How will i ever keep up with it all? Good thing there is no limit on how often i can blog! (see what i just did there? I used blog as a verb, such versatile word to have in one's lexicon).
Unfortunately the post holiday glow is starting to wear off, and life is returning to normal. The good news (for me at least) is that i have finished my exams and so the post holiday glow has been replaced with end of exams giddiness! What this means for you, dear readers is that i have three months to dedicate to my blog!Well not quite three months I do plan on doing other stuff - I have a life you know.
'wow man how can you argue with that price? '
Kudos to the folks at Penguin i say. Anything that makes good literature more affordable for the hoi polloi gets the Miz Murasaki stamp of APPROVAL! I myself have five, probably soon to be six or seven, who knows where it'll end.
I have no interest in pushing up the margins of those retailers. I'm all for cheaper books of course, but not at the expense of the Australian industry, or the poor confused minds of students, learning to spell words in Australian English, but reading books written in American English. At this point I could rattle on about the Americanisation of Australian culture, but i think we all get my point. Lucky for us, the government knocked this proposition back (good one Kev, I think we dodged a bullet there).
Well, back to the Bs.....
So go forth and read, read I tell you!
I really can't say enough about the button, from a fashion perspective they can make a whole outfit. Simply by changing the buttons on our clothes, we can change the whole look of the garment, and the options are endless. Just step into your local haberdashery store and see what i mean (hab-er-dash-ery what a word).
I have a bit of a penchant for mismatched buttons; consequently, I have updated countless outfits by simply changing the buttons (i love a nice soft cardi with contrasting buttons). Lately though I have noticed some clever, crafty ladies using buttons in jewellery. Maybe the Kiwis were ahead of us here, because a few years ago i was holidaying in Raglan, where there was a whole assortment of button based jewellery for sale. If there is one thing Miz Murasaki can't go past it's unique, clever jewellery. With this in mind i have recently become the proud owner of some button hair clips and a button ring. The gals with short hair will agree, cool hair clips are very important (incidentally hair clips can also change the look of an outfit AND say a lot about the wearer, but i digress).
Anyway, I'm off to read some penguins and mess about with buttons, till next time.
btw, Raglan is a great place, if you're ever in the Land of the Long White Cloud, check it out.
- As Oz music month draws to a close i am particulary enjoying The Funkoars, who said RADelaide was dull?
- Buttons, fashionable and functional is there anything they can't do?
- Popular Penguins. Affordable literature for all.
- The light-headed, giddy sense of freedom and possibility one has after end of year exams.
