All Around the Floral-y Scarf

Ok, I'll admit it - up until a few hours ago, I didn't own a circle scarf.  Being a Brisbane-ite, I never thought it got cold enough in winter to justify the purchase of one such scarf.  Needless to say, when I saw this pin I thought it'd be great for a summer scarf, especially because I can't really wear necklaces in summer (my neck turns green...)

Quick Circle Scarf

It was entirely convenient that I happened to have some cute floral fabric sitting around (which has been sitting around for 5-10 years, no joke) which was perfect.  It's a cotton with a bit of stretch, no idea what it actually is though.

By the way, the person who designed the pattern really was right - it does take about 5 minutes to make.  Even if you're a beginner sewer, this was amazingly simple, and one pin I'll gladly make again!

The original pin!

What about you?  Found any super easy, I'll-do-this-again-soon pins lately?  Let me know in the comments below!

See you Tuesday!

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 =)
