Swim by me






If you're like me and can't swim, chances are the thought of swimming in the ocean is overwhelming.

But I really want to snorkel in Malaysia in two weeks.

P Diddy's solution was to get some flippers on me, and get me into the local pool. Armed with flippers, goggles, and a will to learn how to swim, we began the lesson by blowing bubbles in the water..... while small, itty-bitty children did breast strokes and freestyle in the next lane.

Perfect. While P Diddy's patience lasted a lot longer, my determination dissipated into nothing in about 15 minutes.

On an almost entirely different topic I really like my 50s-inspired, checked Speedo swimsuit. Panelling is so body-flattering and a boy-leg cut is so refreshing in the age where scantily-clad bodies by the beach/pool reign.

Wearing checked Speedo one-piece swimsuit, Target Fusion high-waisted denim shorts, Diva medallion, Country Road T-bar wedges.



PS. If you are Asian and love gambling, can you please spread it out over the year instead of clogging up Kings Way in both directions on Chinese New Years? We'd all rather not sit in epic traffic on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, thanks.

Additionally, can everyone please ensure your car doesn't break down on the Kings Way bridge, next to Crown's carpark entrance, on New Years?

We all appreciate it. Thanks, folks!

Those shorts look exactly like mine, except I purchased mine at Topshop! Cool!
Good luck with the swimming, I'm sure you'll land it in the end:) I was on a snorkeling trip in the Whitsundays, and a few of the Irish couldn't swim, but they had floating devices so they could still snorkel!!
