5 Things Sunday...

1) New books!

When out celebratory-shopping yesterday (end of semester, hell yeah!), I had initially decided to get myself a cute pair of red boots (which I still haven't located.  If anyone knows a great place to get boots like that, please tell me! Hehe.), but when I passed QBD, there was quite a few books on sale which I wanted more than a pair of cute boots.

I <3 Louise Bagshawe's books, and the other 2 were a "oh why not" buy, and the bottom book, Daughter's of Fortune is fabulous!  (Definitely not for the young ones, it's a bit racy...)

2. Locating "me" time
I haven't had enough of this lately =)

3. English Breakfast Tea
The week before last I had a cold, so long story short, I tried English Breakfast tea.  So. Very.  Good.  And cheaper than buying a regular coffee too...  ahh so great on a freezing autumn day...

4. The Magic School Bus
Growing up on these books, there's still a stash in the bookshelf at home.  It totally saved my bacon on my last assignment (I'm studying education). 

If you haven't read The Magic School Bus before, even if you're an adult, you totally should!!

5. Catching up on Blogs I Read
I highly recommend reading these too, they're packed with great photos, a great read and are just generally awesome!  ...and for the last week, fabulous procrastination reading...

Next Sunday I'm house sitting and won't have access to the internet for a week, hopefully I can do all the crafty-cooking stuff that I want to!  That means plenty of posts for weeks to come, in theory ;)

Until next time,

Pattern: No Navi!

It's been a while...  Life's been pretty hectic around here, finally 3/4 way through my prac, so hopefully I can get more pattern making / stitching sometime...  For now, here's a small pattern inspired by this demotivational poster:

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
