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.

23 before 23 - number 12~

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 read. Next on my list? The Odessey!

21. Spend more time with friends
So happy with my progress with this! I've met a whole bunch of new friends and have been trying to spend more time with my friends. Still feel there's more progress to be made, but I'm actually motivated now :)

22. Find that perfect shade of red lipstick
DONE! By accident, too. Got my November Bellabox (each month they send you a themed box filled with beauty themed goodies), and in it was a red lip crayon! I'm 100% in love with it, and (...ignoring the fact it isn't a lipstick as such) it's pretty much perfect for me! Here, have a link! (please note: non-sponsored, I just love the product) I also picked up my very first MAC lipstick in a gorgeous red, too :)

And that's it. Hmm so many more things to do, and six months remaining. Guess I'd better get on it!

Hope you have a fabulous new year, and see you in 2014 for a fabulous year!!

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 =)
