With a Tip of my Hat

Cut back to last school holidays - two music teachers hosted a Alice in Wonderland themed musical workshop. One of those teachers accidentally came across glitter foam and decided to make some mini top hats for the two teachers to wear. Mad Hatter themed, of course.

That teacher was then requested to make another for a birthday present for her boss's daughter.

Just for the sake of stating the obvious, I'm talking about the top hats you see below! Sadly, I didn't manage to photograph the other hat I made for the other teacher.

Mini top hat #1

The above hat is mine! Yes, that's actual glitter foam and it came like that. I got so excited when I found it, the store attendant gave me a weird look. In my defence, as a crafter, glitter foam in Australia was unexpectidly awesome.

Mini top hat #2

That's the hat I put together for my boss's daughter - I gave it to her this afternoon and she absolutely loved it! It's quite a bit taller than the other one (around double of the size) simply because I can't estimate very well...

Had to finish with some cute (or at least something modelling my hat...) so here's Brownie wearing my top hat!

Brownie with hat :D

See you next time,

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…
