5 Things Sunday =3

If this is the first time you've read it, 5 Things Sunday is a list of 5 things which have made my week awesome!  I find that it's a great way to sum up the week and to look at all the fabulous things which happened, rather than just the really bad things ^^

Also, I feel bad for missing all of last week!  It's been a rather long week, a major family thing and my final assignment stopped me from blogging for a bit!  I'm back though, I genuinely missed it, so hopefully I can present you all with some awesome stuff this week =3

1. Asos Australia
I first heard of the Australian version of Asos from Sydney Shop Girl, so I've been browsing for the last week...  Then, sadly for my bank account, but fabulously for my (admittedly rather empty) wardrobe, there was a 50% off sale. So I got some adorable clothes which are totally in the mail, and I'm so excited to receive it soon!!!

2. Retiring an accessory and rediscovering it at a convenient moment
...Then realising exactly why you retired it in the first place.

A few years ago I got this adorable Guess bag and at the time I had the matching wallet.  Last night, I needed a small bag which wasn't red (the only small bag I have is a red one, and I'm totally not a fan of matching a red bag with a pink dress), and my mum suggested this Guess bag.  Granted, it looked adorable with my outfit, but...  When your wallet, keys and phone don't fit in a bag, then back to retirement it goes...  Hehe.

3. I got a fringe!

Ok, I have always had one in some form.  Giant forehead and all, I don't look fabulous without one, hehe.  For the last few years I've had a side fringe (which on bad hair days looked exactly like an emo fringe over one eye...), but the other day I got a full fringe and I'm so excited about it  ^^  (Ok, so the photo isn't fabulous, but hey, it was the best one I got, hehe)

4. A "Pet" Plant!

I've been meaning to get a plant for a while, as a sort of intensive to get me outside more often.  It would've worked, except for the awful weather we've had up here over the past few days.  It's a gerbera, who I decided to name George.  Because I like naming things.  It looks really cute in its blue pot as well!

5. Thursday Night TV
Thursday night has officially been labelled "Mother Daughter Bonding Night" where we watch (and comment on, of course) Four Weddings and Beauty and the Geek.  It's a lot of fun!

Woo!  It was hard to pick just five things, it's been a pretty good week ^^
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 =)
