Like last month (hush, I know I'm late with this) Cherin of Masterfully Me nominated me for a Sunshine Award! It's super exciting as I haven't been nominated for an award before, and coming from her it's pretty special :) (unsubtle message: check out her blog, it's fantastic)

Eleven random facts about me
1. I've never actually left Australia, but have always wanted to travel and see the world

2. My Nan is an amazing seamstress and taught me how to sew

5. I prefer giving presents to recieving

10. I usually write out a perfect organisational plan then promptly ignore it.

    Cherin's Eleven Questions
    1. What is your favorite sound?
    The click that the jug makes in the morning so I can make my coffee =P
    Either that or rain.

    2. Favorite recipe your parents or grandparents taught you.
    I think the only recipe that either my parents or my grandparents have actually taught me was my Dad taught me how to cook an omelette a few months ago. Though I have helped my Nan ice cupcakes when I was a kid :)

    3. Have you done any extreme sports (bungie jumping, sky diving) or would you if you had the chance?
    I haven't, and probably wouldn't either. The idea of jumping out of / off a perfectly good object absolutely terrifies me!

    4. What place have you always wanted to visit?
    England! I love the history, and I kind of want to see snow... (I've only seen it once)

    5. Do you have a guilty pleasure and what is it?
    I love reality TV... 

    6. Name your favorite Halloween candy.
    Since I live in Australia, Halloween isn't a big deal as it seems to be in the USA, so I've never actually tried candy corn or anything like that before! But my favorite candy in general are Chuppa Chupps.

    7. Paper or plastic?

    8. Describe your "go to" outfit.
    Skater dress, patterned leggings, scarf (or long necklace) and ballet flats.

    9. What is the best present you ever received?
    Oooh that's a hard question. Most practical goes to my parents (new desk chair for my 21st!), but best... the tea pot and cup my boyfriend gave me for my birthday last year.

    10. Least favorite subject in school?

    11. Sunrise or sunset?
    Sunset, because I think I've only seen one sunrise in my life :)

    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:

    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 =)

    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…
