When life gives you lemons...

Don't make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! GET MAD!
I don't want your damn lemons!
What am I supposed to do with these?
Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons
I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down!
I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that

Ahh Portal 2.  While I haven't actually played the game (...yeah.  Don't judge me too harshly), I saw this pattern while I was shopping around on Etsy, and knew that I had to buy it.

Pretty much since I started stitching this I knew what I wanted to do with it - make a cute little banner thing with a bright, lemon-yellow fabric.  It turned out pretty much how I'd planned, and I love it!

Where it's hanging in my room

It is a pretty good thing to remember :)

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.

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…
