march challenge



march challenge: do something different everyday!

this is a new challenge that jo and i are going to do for the whole month in march. amongst other bloggers around the world, these lovely ladies are also taking the challenge with us: adeline from lady croisant, anna from much love, illana from see me everywhere and tracey from quiet paws

join us! take it as simple as it can be: order different coffee from your favourite cafe, wear an old pair of shoes that you haven't worn in years, walk different route to work or do sparkapolooza! (excuse myself, couldn't help myself for shameless self promotion here!). you can also think big and do a completely new activity: sky diving maybe? no need to do or buy something new all the time. be creative, this is why this challenge is called do something different everyday NOT do something new everyday.

any rules? this is your own challenge, everything is completely flexible on how you want to do this and how you want to record your progress. for me, i'll be tracking my progress on instagram. you can add my ID lauratj or if you're not iphone or ipad users, you can check my instagram photos here.

why this challenge? just to put more colours to your everyday mundane life. and of course to have fun! you never know what you might find or experience just by doing the simplest thing differently from your day to day routine. 

need some more inspirations? read these words of wisdom from my previous posts here and here.

hope you'll be participating, would love to hear from you! or we will also have some updates on Half/Half facebook page so join us there. *updated* if you do join us on of those many social media channels out there, please tag your post #differentmarch so that i can follow your updates :)

midnight in paris






see: woody allen's midnight in paris

i finally got a chance to see this last week. it was at bondi open air, which is this open air cinema by the beach in sydney and it was all meant to be a nice outing for a summer night. but no. it was freaking cold and windy and grey, it was drizzling on and off all night. it's ok though because this movie was SO good and it was definitely worth it staying out. 

i've always thought paris is beautiful but i feel like i didn't appreciate it as much as i should on my visits during the time i lived in europe. i want to go back to paris! does anyone of you live there? i'm still interested in hearing where everyone is from, drop me a line here :)
