Me-Made-May Days 11 and 12

I have been having quite a bit of fun.

Day 11

My friend Marko called me at about 10pm and said "let's go this new place in the 13th district". I almost said no because that is the outskirts of the city to me. I took forever deciding on my clothes and then made myself walk out there. It turned out to be one of those great crazy nights. I had so much fun!! I met some really interesting people. You could pay what you wanted for the drinks!

I wore:

I just made the singlet earlier in the day. When my friend moved out of the flat a few months ago he left loads of his clothes. So his t-shirt became my new singlet. I cut it out and resewed all of the seams but kept the original hem. 

I really, really don't like when girls wear shorts with tights. I think this is a huge faux pas. I kind of look down on those girls. Tights are for wearing with skirts and dresses! But then I did it. I wore my shorts with tights... 

I really wanted to wear my shorts! And I thought it would get cold. So I just did it.

There was food too - also of the pay what you want kind.

On my way home I met Mario and Luigi at 5:30am!

I met two cool guys at some point during the night (not the Mario brothers, other cool guys). We hung out for a while, went and ate Turkish fast food. Everyone was sleepy. They needed a place to crash cos they lived out of the city. So I let them stay at my place. Impromptu couchsurfing!

Day 12

Hilarious start to the day. I have this galeria thing in my flat. I don't know what it's called in English. A mezzanine? It's pretty common in Budapest flats. Like a half level thing in the room. So anyway, one of the guys was up there (the other was in the bathroom) and he woke up and didn't know where he was. So he starts calling out "helloooooo". OMG, it was so funny. Hearing the "where the fuck am I????" in his voice. He even asked who of his friends he had been with the night before.

The three of us hung out for a bit, all hungover, then their friend came and picked them up and I went out to meet my friend Denisa. We went to check out a cool little second hand market near the Bazilika. There were lots of rooms with different sellers in each. I got stuck in one with piles (and piles and piles) of German Burda magazines from the 80s. The seller lady kept bringing me more and more to peruse! I am so glad I wasn't in my twenties in the 80s. Some years seem especially heinous for women. But I did end up buying 7 magazines from across the whole decade. There were some cute clothes hidden under those should pads.

Denisa found a cool bow tie.

We had lunch at the nicest little Indonesian place. The waitress there was so cute and the food was delicious. I will definitely be going back there soon.

I wore:

My first dress repeat of the month. I could have gone longer but I wanted to wear this dress... I got new summer sandals that match it.


  1. Woot, I'm really into your makes. I much prefer your outdoors photos because I get to see something of your city (which looks fairly interesting based on the number of historic buildings around)-Melbourne's nice in the city centre and the country but pretty much everywhere is hideous suburbia with row upon row of cookie cutter boxes ('houses'/ mcmansions) XP

  2. You live in Melbourne? I love that city! I used to live there! For a year when I was 19. I think if I ever move back down under anywhere I will go to Melbourne.

    Budapest is a gorgeous city, I'll try to get more outdoor pics.
