flowers in her hair

Monday, September 17, 2012

At the weekend, Izzy and I finally planned a sleepover. It was loads of fun and we did the usual; ate yummy food, gossiped a little (okay, a lot!) and watched youtube beauty videos. It's so nice not having any more assessment for another two weeks as this week is the last of term three. I plan on spending my holidays working, reading, going to the beach and shopping. Most importantly I want to relax and find the perfect dress for the Year 10 dance. At the moment, I've been loving this, thisthis and this. Help me pick the perfect one!
In these photos, I am wearing a dress I thrifted recently that has quickly become a new favourite, a gorgeous flower crown made by Izzy herself, a Rubi satchel, a vintage bangle and Forever New belt.

Anyway, these photos were taken on another morning stroll we took. Something hilarious always happens when I take photos with Izzy! Whilst I was taking her pictures at the gates of a pretty house, she was telling me about the cranky neighbour that lives there. Just as I was starting to freak out a little, we heard a few noises and thought he was going to come out and chase us away! We sprinted down the driveway onto the path, laughing so hard because there wasn't anyone there! I can't decide which was funnier: seeing Izzy sprint down the drive in booties with a look of terror on her face or me sprinting down the drive with a look of terror on my face. It reminded me SO much of the scene in the film Pollyanna where they trespass into the old, angry neighbour's property and get caught! Dear me :)

I hope your week started off quite nicely and you don't get into any mishaps whilst taking your photos!

♥ Props to my peasant friend for taking the pictures ♥

I love Pollyanna and that scene. And when they look at prisms . .I became obsessed with putting prisms around my room after seeing it.
I love your dress. How pretty!!!
