Gone Casual

I can't exaggerate how lazy my last few days have been. I've achieved a bit of meadering around town, listening to some music and watching loads of movies and tv shows. My folks gave me three seasons of Arrested Development on DVD.

I must admit I am feeling good though, particular because yesterday I finally plucked up the courage to head to the Red Cross and donate some of my liquid red stuff. Far less painful experience than I anticipated and the people in the centres are incredibly grateful - especially around this time of year - where donations drop off significantly and hospitals are needing more blood than ever. You don't need money to help save some lives!
Please click the links to find out more and if you're from a Nation not listed please utilise google and find out where you can donate.

Anywho this is an extremely casual outfit in a sunny, blurred out setting.

dress, American Apparel
cardigan, SES
jeans, Kmart
clogs, Funkis
sunglasses, Paddys Markets

I can't get over how beautiful your profile is. 1990's Grace Kelly...if I can somehow put that into a nickname I think that is how I shall refer to you from now on. :P

Sadly, I've been told that I can't donate blood. I apparently fall under the weight requirement. (I didn't think I was that small!)

Zanita said...

Its pretty daunting thinking about that needle - but when you truly contemplate the kind of good its doing its pretty easy to muster up the strength. Close your eyes and grit your teeth!
Thanks to all of you - im fanatical about the nineties of late x

I was going to say very nineties as well.
Wow, noughties are over, and we're in the teens!
For some reason I'm not really cared of needles any more - too many blood tests these past few years I think.

Happy New Year :)

Amelia said...

That's so good to hear you donated blood and to see that you're making people aware! I donated blood for the first time too a few months ago and now do it as often as I can. I HATE needles and usually faint, but it's really not that bad! (Oh and I love the free food you get at the end lol)

I love this casual top that you're wearing!

You like Arrested Development?? You're even more amazing than I thought! I'm so excited for the movie- and did you hear they're bringing the show back?? I think it's only going to be on Netflix streaming but I'm so happy it'll be back on!
