end of year 11 // boat cruise


My school is pretty awesome in general, but especially when it comes to putting together end of year celebrations. One of the most exciting parts of these kind of events is getting all dressed up and fancy. I ditched the usual "pink and frills" kinda vibe that I am notorious for and went with a more Audrey Hepburn style outfit. I felt marvellously grown up and loved every minute of it!
The teachers took us all to Brisbane on Tuesday night for a wonderful, fun-filled night on a cruise along the river. The atmosphere was absolutely angelic as we all sat down to eat a meal overlooking the beautiful lights and water, and celebrated the fantastic year that is about to be over. We then all headed down to the bottom level of the boat to dance and mingle. It's celebrations and fun events like this (and last years Year 10 dance) that really make me appreciate the grade, school and the community that I am a part of. Sometimes I take for granted how lucky I am to be surrounded by such a beautiful group of people and caring teachers. 

I'm so excited for what next year has to offer me! I was given the position of Magazine curator for the school next year so I will make sure that the yearbook is an absolute success! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far and I'll talk to you soon xo

Wow Maria, you are such a stunning young lady! It's amazing to know that it has been about 2 years since I first came across your blog, and since then you have continued to grow into such a beautiful and sophisticated woman.

Congratulations on becoming magazine curator, you will do a fabulous job
