(how gorgeous is this flower crown made by my friend Tiara?)

Hey everyone! In the midst of research booklets on the foundations of Christianity, measuring the volume of superficial water tanks, reading the most snooze-worthy English novel ever and maintaining my sanity, I've been brain storming ideas like a mad woman for Avenue M. I've decided that at the beginning of each month I will document the month beforehand in a mini-series. I'll talk about lots of different things that happened in the previous month like thrifting adventures, room updates and fashion/ lifestyle things that I documented.
Hope you enjoyed April as much as I did! To be honest, this year is going way to fast...

Last month I made a huge difference in my lifestyle; particularly with my exercise. It's now become a habit to go for a run  (or walk) every afternoon to get fresh air and clear my head. When I'm not up to running, I like to bring along my camera to scope out new picture locations, lighting and pretty Autumn sunsets. I really recommend it to anyone. As little as half an hour of exercise a day can make a huge difference in your health :)

I'd been wanting a hair colour change for a while, so I enlisted the help of my visiting sister and she dyed my hair a few shades darker than my natural colour. I love it! It suits my skin tone a lot better and it's so much more even and pretty looking. You guys seemed to like it too which made it even better :)

I gave my room another makeover last month! It helped keep me on track and inspired. I cleared out about three bags full of things I didn't need and now my room is looking as spotless as ever! I was thinking about doing an updated room tour. What do you think? In video or photo form? Let me know!

Went out with a family friend of mine to a cafe to have tea (well, in my case, a caramel milkshake) and visited a nice Noosa restaurant on ANZAC day with my family. I think it's important to do these things often... it's nice to have a treat and enjoy good company.

Issue 52 of Frankie was a marvellous bedside companion, I must say! It was bursting with excellent articles, fab-u-lous illustrations and was probably my favourite issue yet. Time to compare it to Issue 53!

How was your April? Anything exciting happen for you? Please share it in a comment! I'd love to know :)

Nice to know that your April was fantastic. Mine was fairly drab because I was drowning in academics...
I would love to see your improved room :) In any format that works for you.
