5 Things Sunday/Monday

It's a late one today (well, it'll be Monday by the time I post this...) because I was on a date with my other half =)

1. Unexpectedly receiving mail

I love getting mail, so when I got my Shop 'Til You Drop magazine in the mail on Monday, I was so excited!  That, and I love getting mail in general.

2. Catching up with friends

Especially since it's been a while.  There's nothing quite like catching up with the people you haven't seen in a while - I spent my Saturday catching up with some friends that I haven't seen in years over the Harry Potter movies.   We saw the last one too.  If you haven't seen it already, I'm horrified.  It's utterly fabulous.

3. The view from my window at sunset

I do love my view - it's utterly gorgeous to see the palm trees silhouette'd against the changing light - it's absolutely stunning, the photo doesn't do it justice.

4.  My favorite boots

You know the pair, the ones which go with everything, are really comfy and totally cute.  I love winter so I can wear them so often!  Well, to the point where they live in the car...  Hehe.  They're black suede knee high boots with a tiny heel. ^.^

5. Giant.  Fluffy.  Socks.

I hate slippers, so I have my giant fluffy socks to keep my feet warm.  That, and these are just adorable.

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…
