Round two - fight!

Welcome to round two - the rest of my uni books!

This first one was inspired by A Beautiful Mess - so I chopped up a couple of magazines to get my triangles.

All in all, it's bright and cheerful so I quite like it, even if I did accidentally didn't cut some triangles straight so they don't fit together overly well, but you don't really notice that.

That brings us to the final book - surprisingly enough, the first one I actually put together.

That's actually not my subject's name, believe it or not. I ran out of "d"'s and "u"'s in the stickers.  I figured "intro" was a decent enough substitution for "induction"...

The colour, in real life isn't anywhere near as washed out, but you get the idea.  By the way, all of my books are covered in two layers of homemade modpodge - so I don't end up with ruined books if a drop of rain gets on them.  Takes a while to dry and does cause the books to warp a little bit, but nothing heavy book didn't fix.

See you Friday!

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.
