WIP: Granny Square Blanket!

So last time I blogged about my granny square blanket it was around 30cm square (huh.  It was only a month ago.  Well there you go...).  Which I was pretty pleased about at the time.  Well, I still am, it just got colourful and giant. 

Pretty sure when I last posted a picture it was just the blue centre, but I'm pretty sure you can see it's a fair bit bigger since I changed colours.  Hehe.

The easiest way to me to show off the size of the blanket was to take the above photo.  Though I guess it didn't occur to me that the last colour I used was purple and my bedspread's purple too...Ahh well, I think it's pretty clear?

I am *loving* this colour combination, of the teal, black, purple and yellow.  It did seem a little odd when I started, but I really do love it.  They started off as colours I already had (the yellow and black were initially for a Hufflepuff scarf, but I gave up on that... the purple was a freebie with a magazine and my Nan gave me the light blue), and I added teal.  Because I do love that colour.

So as always, until next time,

P.S.  If this works right, you should be reading this on Wednesday...  *fingers crossed*

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…
