5 Things Sunday

1. Playing the tourist in my own city

I went to the Southbank Markets for the first time in years yesterday!  Of course, I took my camera.  It was a most enjoyable day, and the weather was perfect!  You know, the gorgeous, pretty much cloud-free winter days.

So many awesome things!  Must go back soon... That, and go to the Gallery of Modern Art.

Also, the local wildlife was pretty cute too ;)  Seeing 2 galahs in the middle of the city is pretty cool, I must admit.

How awesome is this for an idea!  It's a garden made up of pallets!  I thought this was an awesome idea!!  Especially if you have to move or something.

2. Realising that your crochet blanket is twice the size you thought it was

I'll post a pic later this week, it's getting massive!  Especially since the last time I posted a pic of it it was 30cm square...

3.  Going back to uni!

WOO!  So excited about going back tomorrow, especially since I have 2/3 great subjects to look forward to!

4. Photography

I used to do a lot, but it dwindled over the years as I discovered new hobbies / broke my original camera.  Yesterday I got to do a lot more, which was fabulous and I do want to do more!

Hopefully I can get a little better, too.

All the photos are of Southbank, by the way.

5. "Window" Shopping

Well, virtual shopping, really.  I do love it.  That, and the wishlist-compiling.  Ah pretty dress, cute shoes, you will be mine!  *evil laughs*


That's all for now,
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 =)
