I'm back, baby!

Well, looks like I'm back in charge of my own destiny once again. No dream job will be handed to me on a silver platter, and that suits me just fine.

I have sorely neglected my crafting on account of all this Best Job brouhaha over the past several weeks, but watch out, because I'm back and feeling super motivated. I mean, if I can put that much effort into a pipe dream, surely I can be doing more in pursuit of real goals.

Destined for greatness?

This, my 30th year, is the year that great things are supposed to happen, at least that’s what they told me.

So when I learned of an intriguing opportunity being made available by Tourism Queensland, I naturally decided to go whole hog, full force and put all my eggs in this one basket. I mean, isn’t it obvious that THIS is the great thing I’m destined to experience.

As if you aren't already getting your fill of me, Yours truly on this or my other, completely self-involved blog - ilana turns 30 - you can now follow my efforts to land The Best Job in the World on my newest blog at

Keep your fingers crossed...

I resolve to buy majority handmade and vintage

I'm not quite ready to go cold turkey on my Old Navy/Target/Forever 21 habit. But I am making a concerted effort to keep it to a minimum, and put more of my hard earned money toward supporting handmade, and staying green by shopping vintage.

And to that aim, I discovered the absolutely cutest, somewhat new (since October) vintage store right here in good ol' Greenpoint - Old Hollywood.

I needed another clutch like I need a hole in the head, but I just couldn't resist.

And as a side note, every time I step into one of these super cute new boutiques, it makes me absolutely ache for the day when I can open my own. No, Yours truly hasn't abandoned her goals completely, don't fret now my dearies.
