rambles about covers, collages and crackers

hopeless romantic
I decided to spend my last day of holidays relaxing. I wanted to have a lovely, healthy day and feel good about myself. I though a bit of positive self pampering could help me feel a little better about going back to school and continuing work on algebra tomorrow. For breakfast I had plain porridge and honey and snacked on apple and crackers in between. I also got around to making some orange and poppy-seed muffins. Improving your diet can make such a huge difference, I feel really great! And I switched hot chocolate for some honey and lemon tea just for something different and it was rather nice. 
I'm pretty excited about buying the latest Harpers Bazaar Australia with Mia Wasikowska on the cover. The theme of the editorial is Edwardian style. She wears romantic blouses, cinching belts and beautiful Rodarte lace. I can't wait to see her perform the role of Jane Eyre, it's just such a beautiful story and she is perfect for the role. Onto the Polyvore collage; it's sort of a mishmash of all things pretty. The floaty chiffon Topshop dress is just beautiful and goes with the blue heels like a dream. I also cannot contain my excitement for the last Harry Potter film that hits cinemas in less than 48 hours. I've been hidden in the pages of the Deathly Hallows for a few days now, and I know that this final installment of the worldwide phenomenon will be a film to remember. 

Hope everyones week is full of magic and glee! x
