Dandelion deeds

Aren't these hand-painted flowers beautiful? They are from my school's visual arts exhibition. The concept is, if you have a smart phone, you can use the QR code scanner app, and it will give you a sweet little message about the flower on your card. How lovely is that?

I'm off to study some more maths for the big term test tomorrow :( Wish me luck!

The September Issue

This picture was all over pinterest about a month ago, and now it's in Vogue Australia's september issue! It's really, practically a perfect outfit With the navy jumper, pink pleated skirt and sparkles.

This week is super stressful and I'm feeling quite overwhelmed at the moment, with a digital media competition entry due tomorrow (which I completely forgot about until today!) and a few assessments later this week. I'll be very glad come Friday night.

 Relaxing for a bit with some cookies and vogue. :)

I'd steal the mona lisa, but I know I wouldn't keep her

(ignore the where-the-hell-am-I-looking-face)

Happy Sunday! Spent most of the day sitting around eating biscuits, reading and getting distracted by random things on the internet. I'm wearing my new lipstick from Rimmel London, that I did a post on a while ago. What do you think?

Had a bit of a wander around Westfield, but didn't really see anything that caught my eye, and had a cheeky yogurberry. I love how it's DIY and you can scoop extra of what you especially like (in my case mochi!) and  try a little of something new, then getting it weighed altogether at the end (I am quite easily amused).

Five Things

Full new pots of jam and honey always make me happy.

I tried to make some chocolate cupcakes from a new recipe, and somehow they turned out like this.. a weird hybrid halfway between a pikelet and a muffin. It tasted alright though, a great mid-morning snack with some milk or coffee.

The fresh fruit in warm hues at the grocery store.

Look how pretty and cute these soap dispensers and cushions  at Myer are!

Vanilla scented candles and a few books that I always keep on my table, for bedtime reading. One of the best things to look forward to after a long day.

How's your week been?

A little lipstick

A few days ago, I purchased this beautiful lipstick. It's the Kate Moss for Rimmel London #12 and it's a pretty warm, orange red. The colour just warms up my face and I love it.

What's your favourite shade of lipstick or lipgloss?

Stripes and Strawberries

It's been so ridiculously windy this week, sitting in my room now, I can actually I hear the wind! All the better to feel cosy and snug indoors :) I swear ever since One Direction became famous and made public their love for Nandos, their business has improved significantly.

This week has been very relaxed, with no upcoming exams or assessments, which I'm a bit worried about actually. I feel like I'm forgetting about something very important that I need to do.. Or maybe I'm just being overly anxious?

I am at the moment, eating some strawberries and dreaming of summer, feeling very proud of myself as; I have finally found the perfect striped sweater! And some boots on sale from $45 to $6.50, what a steal! :)

I'm off to watch a few episodes of White Collar with a nice big mug of tea. Enjoy your week-end lovelies.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

A  few of my favourite little trinkets :)

This rose covered jewellery box used to be my mothers that I sneakily stole, the beautiful roses were just too hard to resist.

Happy Friday everyone! After an incredibly busy week, I am looking forward to a lazy weekend curled up on the couch with a big mug of tea and a book.
