Pour a little sugar on it, honey

We've just finished an assignment in class for Chelsea Sugar- designing a mock set of ads for the NZ Womens Weekly. So, I went down the Kiwiana route... since everyone in NZ knows what Chelsea sugar looks like, I decided to have some fun. Although, I swear the pink wasn't quite so bright before I uploaded it. Sorry if your eyes are burning.

But, in more important news, I got new boots! I've been desperately needing some new boots for the days where it's so cold that you absolutely have to wear a pair of socks or two, unless you want to freeze your toes off. And because I value what little sense of balance I have without losing the added stability my toes provide for me, I went on a mission.

Boots. New ones.

And returned with these. I love a successful shopping mission. I imagine it's similar to the thrill of killing a bison in order to provide for your starving family, except without the blood and guts. And, they're so stable, I probably could hunt a bison in them if I really wanted to. Perfect!

Another thing I find absolutley amazing is the built in iSight camera in my Macbook. It's just so handy for the times you can't be bothered setting up a real camera that actually takes decent photos. Which, if you're like me, is fairly often.

Unfortunately, these two loves of mine don't get along so well. The above photo merely proves that I should take a little pride both in my photography and in myself. But for now, I'm just going to go with sticking my legs in the air and hoping that my parents don't walk in on me trying to photograph my legs with my computer. That could be a fun one to explain.

Hmmm. Next time, I'll get the camera out.
