Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolli-lollipop

For the last few years I've been teaching piano, however it's been only in the last few months that I've been using lollipops as a reward for practicing.  So that meant I needed to make a cute lollipop bag, one which matches my piano book bag.  Of course.

Lollipop bag!

Still using my favorite fabric - turns out I have so much of that stuff it's crazy...  Either way, I'm mostly pleased with how this turned out; I glued the ribbon up a little too high so it doesn't close as much as I'd like, but hey.  It'll do its job and hold lollipops.


Right in time for school holidays, I have the lollipop bag stocked and ready to go.  With the best sort of lollipop, of course.  Ahh Chuppa Chups.  You hold so much temptation and are so delicious...

Lollipops ;)

The lemon lime ones are totally my favorite.  Apparently my students don't like the plain strawberry ones, which is a pain because last term I ended up with quite a number of leftover strawberry ones...  Which so was not annoying to get rid of ;)

Until next time,

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…
