spiritus


Forever New chambray blouse, Thrifted denim skirt, Rubi t-strap shoes, bag c/o Oasap, Forever New belt


It's October already! That's taken a while to sink in. So have a lot of things to be honest. In about four months I'll be getting my driver's license; in about a month (and a half) I'll have finished my tenth year of schooling (with only two to go); and we are almost finished 2012! It feels as though it was only yesterday I was compiling my resolutions for this year. I looked back on them this afternoon and I have nearly accomplished all of them without even realising it! I've gotten a job, improved my organisational skills, built up my thrifted/vintage collection quite a lot (mainly in the last few months) and am (currently) saving for a DSLR. I've also matured a lot more ... both physically and emotionally. I think I worry considerably less, have developed a much stronger shell and my independence has thrived. 

Anyway, before I waffle on further (I'm meant to be saving a post like this for the end of the year!), these photos were taken yesterday; it was quite a hazy afternoon. After taking a few pictures, my sister's and  collected a few pine cones for decorating and painting. There's a really amazing forest up past my house and it has the most Christmas-y atmosphere. I love it! Speaking of festivities; Halloween is coming up! We Australian's are pretty pathetic celebrators but I intend to make this year the best with the help of Izzy. We are going to have our annual Halloween sleepover complete with er, scary (when I say scary, I mean Harry Potter because that's all she can handle) movies, hanging ghosts and candy. 

How have you'll been? What are your plans for Halloween? Have you achieved what you've wanted this year? Tell me about some exciting things that have happened to you so far this year ♥

Such a great post! Ho exciting that you've got everything done early! I didn't even set any resolutions... I never have, I feel if I make goals, I never achieve them, or it seems to take ages!! Not setting goals makes things seem like more of a surprise as well!! I am however in my twenties and working full time... so maybe I should have set some goals when I was younger!! hahaha ohh well!! :)
