The circus comes to town

You may have noticed (or not) my absence from the world wide web. Brought on by using our bandwidth allowance way too quickly. Time to upgrade, me thinks. I feel slightly out of it but have been suitably distracted by a crazy busy workload (yes, I have brought work home this weekend), birthday shenanigans and catching up with friends....

....so I shall have to pick up the pace and get right back into the swing of things. And remember to take some outfit snaps. I'm also in the process of choosing a new digital SLR camera (preferably Canon) courtesy of a massive collaborative birthday present from family and friends, so any suggestions/recommendations would be highly appreciated.

In the meanwhile here are some snaps from the Circus themed party I threw to celebrate my birthday. Good times. The bunny won the "best outfit" prize. Granted. And the feather falsies were bought about 6 months ago and I planned to add them to the outfit regardless. Mission accomplished.

Mmm so to be Totally Honest I am not especially fan of "Circus' aesthetics" (OOooooh YES I have Absolutely NO Humour) BUT the way this "BODY conscious-esque" jumpsuit shapes your "BOMBnextDoor-esque" curves . . . Highly tend to make change my narrow Opinion !!!!

à Bientôt, Antoine

I love my Sony A20 SLR but it is the cheapest ($500-700) - if people were buying a camera for me and price was no object, I would definitely do Canon Rebel! One day :)
