Rumour has it that in my absence I’ve acquired a job as a professional bricklayer in a dusty little corner in Brazil; married my highschool sweetheart and spread honey on the moon in a windy island in Greece; had a few kids – mostly twins and triplets; shaved my head and attacked the tripod with an umbrella. Partially true, especially the twins and triplets bit – took two visits to IKEA to get shelves for them to sleep on. Again, I won’t apologize for ‘not blogging’, it’s pretty clear you didn’t continuously peck on the F5 (refresh) key every day of the past 2 weeks… although this has been the longest I’ve gone without putting anything up. Who knew the momentum of not-blogging is as powerful as blogging non-stop? The ball started rolling and I just couldn’t stop – not this ‘blog’ ball, the ‘life’ ball. I have many balls, apparently. Admittedly there have been big changes to my life as of late, but congratulate me? I’ve finally got something that somewhat resembles a life! Hope you don’t mind if I share a few in the next few posts, but one thing at a time – starting with how I lost 10kg…

Shot in the beginning of September with Kit, (thank you!)

  8. I know, life has its ways of going by too quickly and I feel like the blog train zips by even faster to catch and keep up with. you look gorgeous! i love the chambray and the satiny texture on your midi skirt. maybe i am one of those crazies who does hit f5 until i break the key. your photography never fails to surprise me!

    Glad to see you back! I’ve been having dreams lately, me lost in the woods of your sensational blog.. I really do admire your level of literature, they ought to dedicate a whole studies for your blog, park-and-cube studies: the study of fashion, photography, and witty writing skills.

  28. Beautiful pics, love it!

  29. I really like the first photo! All these photos look like taken in a monastery :)

  30. Looove this!
    Generally, Isn’t the bag a little too stiff or awkward?
    You definitely pulled off the bag without making ‘em too awkward,
    btw, 결혼 축하해요!

  31. 아 고맙습니다~~
    The bag is stiff but I love it for that reason, really gives that pull-together look! But it doesn’t fit in my bicycle basket which is the only thing I’m peeved about… oh and the fact that the strap pops out when there’s something remotely heavy in it (i.e camera)…it fell and shattered my camera lens filter! Thank goodness it wasn’t the lens…

  32. Hi Canary, you flatter me. How’s Dan Silvester Johnson and Kyu doing? x

  33. I missed your lovely photos in my Google reader.

    And yes, please do share how you lost 10 kg! That’s been my goal for ages and I’ve managed to lose 2 without doing anything. I do walk a lot in London though…

  34. Canary

    @Shini, Dan and Kyu are very well, thank you for asking. :-)

  35. how perfect! your photos are pure art.

    with love,
    your opinion is VERY important for me!http://chocarome.blogspot.com/

  36. Do tell, I hear you’ve taken on a new role full time??

  37. Indeeeeedy, but who’s the bird telling everyone!? Must catch it and roast it for dinner…

  38. @Shini, it’s your bird, no? hehehe. Suspense for your readers until the next post!

    Hope it’s going well x

  39. Welcome back!!
    I miss you a lot specially to see your beautiful outfits, traveling story or easy to do recipe. Everytime I doing blogwalking,I never forgot to see your blog but this is your longest period of being absent from the blogger world. Hmm..maybe just my opinion that you look very pale and very tired in some pictures that expose your face. I hope you are fine (:
    Congratulations for all things that you achieved in the “life” ball, I’m sure those things make you happy and feel blessed. By the way I love your bag even it’s look awkward, I know how you feel about the bag and it’s look match with your outfit.

  40. Looking superb as ever. Missed you.
    Angry birds??! Ahh… :D

  41. love your leather skirt + great bag! x

  52. Love your outfits & your photos! You are amazing. Visit my website: http://ordinaryqirl.blogspot.com

  53. Ha! Shini, you never fail to make me chuckle! But I read in the Asos magazine that you were getting married, so huge congratulations if the absence (which you don’t need to apologise for! This is your blog and you can do with it what you like) was for that reason.
