life through the lens #4
The beautiful array of dresses at Podie Pie! I hogged the change-room the whole time I was there...
I'm alive! Just imagine a girl emerging from the rubble of a volcanic explosion and you've hit the nail on the head. I am half way through my first exam week of my last year of high school and I feel as though my academic soul has been ravaged. Aside from the purple under my eyes and the "close-to-falling-asleep" status in class, I'm doing okay. I thought I would just give you all a quick update on what life is like lately... At the weekend, one of my closest friends, Ruby, and I went thrift shopping and had lunch together. I picked up a pretty black dress and a green anorak for less than the price of a loaf of bread so I was quite pleased with myself. I think I might go back again for a thriftual (hehe, see what I did there...) this weekend, Winter is creeping up (the nights are getting cooler), and I'm in desperate need of a nice pair of jeans! On Sunday I spent the day "studying" with a few friends; which mostly consisted of consuming cake and gossiping.
Beautiful flowers at the grocery store // Found my pearl cat ear headband after I thought I lost it! Expect it to be featured in an outfit post very soon
My ten year old sister made this apple pie all by herself! It was absolutely perfect // Trying out different makeup looks for the cooler months - raspberry lips and a bit of bronzer to give my complexion a colourful glow!
The holidays are going to be such a lovely break. Although I still have two projects that I need to finish before we go back to school at the end of April (read Nineteen Eighty Four by George Orwell and analyse the Stepford Wives), I can't wait to celebrate Easter with my family, attend my Aunty's wedding and sleep in a little more than usual. Speaking of the wedding, I finally picked out a dress for it! It's from the same shop all of those dresses pictured above is from (Podie Pie). It's got a beautiful boat neck and has light blue and white polka dots and hits just below the knee. It's very fifties inspired and I think a pair of white kitten heels will look perfect.
I hope you're all having a lovely week, and stay tuned for a new post that is coming up within the next few days, all about my blogging lifestyle! xo
The day before I got my eyebrows plucked! Man they were caterpillar-y. Haha! // My current journal has a front cover that says "Paris is always a good idea". Can it get any more perfect?
So, I had a bit of a rave about this mug a few weeks ago. Basically, it has improved my quality of life. It's just a magical mug and it was only a $1 at an op-shop and I drink tea from it every morning. Best. Purchase. Ever // Autumn skies are really beautiful at dusk...
