Mother Nature....

Hello Lovelies, Mother Nature has unfortunately struck my fair city again today (thank god not on my birthday yesterday!). We had a 5.5 magnitude aftershock at 1pm today which sent us running out from eating lunch at work, we were then sent home as a precaution so the building could be checked. I went home via the boys work to make sure he was ok and he was staying on at work. I was sitting home by myself when another massive aftershock hit at 2.20pm which was a magnitude 6 and even shallower than the 5.5 earlier......I nearly shat myself not going to lie. It was huge and made James car roll back into the garage door and his big surround sound speakers fell over as did other minor things....I ran outside and the ground was still shaking and for a goood 10 minutes after that I swear the ground did not stop moving just aftershock after aftershock....very scary and unnerving. James came home as did our flattie (his brother) so Ive got company now. Thankfully we have power and water etc although water pressure is very low and we are being told to conserve. Buildings have collapsed, more liquifaction and deaths so far thank god! You can see pictures and more info here

Yes, Im freaked out but what can I do so Im gonna carry on and give you an outfit post! I was going to show you my birthday outfit but I think I'll leave that for tomorrow. Another outfit with my army style top hehe, teamed it with some bright coral this time for something different.
