5 Things Sunday!

1. 50's Evening Dresses
Ahh I'm loving this style at the moment, I've got a formal event coming up in a few months  so I was looking around for inspiration as to what to wear...  Something like the above dress would be amazing, but we'll see. Hehe.

2. Nail Polish

Ever since discovering this blog, my nails have been changing colour with a rather regular frequency.  It's so much fun!  I'm using Maybelline's "Mini Colorama" in "Marshmallow" (2 coats) and Rimmel "60 Seconds" in "Blue my Mind" (1 coat).  I'm not a fan of layering the Marshmallow, after several hours the blue on my right hand is still smudgeable...

3. Crochet!

I know I said crochet blankets last week, but this week I learned to crochet granny squares thanks to my mum and last night I taught myself to do single crochet stitches.  So. Very.  Awesome.  My giant granny square blanket is just under 30cm (see photo above), which is awesome, I didn't realise it was getting so big!  I'm going to re-do my single-crotchet stitches scarf, it's... rather wonky, hehe.

4. Rainbow Cake!

I <3 this cake.  It's my birthday on Thursday, so I'm hoping to make this for my own birthday.

5. ProActiv
Yep, I have zits.  So I tried this stuff as a last resort, and I do like it!  Especially the mineral powder, that stuff is fabulous!

Hopefully this week I'll be posting some stuff I'm working on / have made!
So 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:

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 =)

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…
