christmas/end of '10/start of '11 wishlist.

Hello my dears!
guesswhatguesswhatguesswhatguesswhatguesswhat! My favourite time of the year is here: Christmas oh how I've missed you! *tear*  It's the season of both giving and receiving, celebrating the birth of Christ and having just general good times with the family, and I'm fairly sure I've caught Christmas fever, too. It's like there's a bee buzzing crazily in my insides, a bee high on the sight of green and red in every store in every mall, the glitter and garland and about a million cheery white-bearded big bellied santas sitting on thrones. It makes me want to squeal in delight at the festivities and immerse myself in as much confetti, glitter and tinsel as my body can have wrapped around, hug every santa I see, eat too much candy and spend all my savings on gifts for friends and family. Oh and let us never forget the less fortunate.
Ok so that was a lengthy intro which has nothing to do with this post, which is about.. my christmas - beginning of '11 wishlist!
I have a million things I want. Ahh yes, I am a typical human being, never satisfied with what she has, always yearning for yet another gorgeous piece of clothing/jewellery/accessory/book/pair of shoes/anything etc that is unlucky enough to catch her eye. Anyway, let us begin. By the way, these are things I really want and feel like I cannot complete life without, not just things I like. That list would go on forever.
In no particular order:
1. A pair of wedged strappy sandals, a la Tony Bianco's Loretto, or similar. Preferably a pair in ivory/natural wash, since I own way too many black heels, and NO (can you believe it!?) white/natural wash pairs.

2. Hats. A floppy black one, and a faux fur trapper/headband puhhh-lease?

3. Heeled lace-up boots, preferably with wool lining for extra comfort and warmth, even though it's summer where I am and all I seem to be sporting are flipflops, gladiators and my favourite black wedged sandals. Or lace-up booties with an open toe!

 If you can't find a pair, and let's face it, shopping here is horrible, black doc martens are the way to go :D:D:D
OR, 'man tailored' (says the description) booties like this:

They're gorgeous in an ugly kind of way, in my opinion.

4. Snake cuff and armour rings. I have an obsession with armour rings. And animal rings.

5. Peter Alexander slippers. Funny Bunny/Penny Dog. I went to buy them online the other day, but they're sold out! And in stores too. Mannnnn I hope they're back in stock soon! Also can't seem to find a photo.

6. Ray Ban aviators in gold, yesplease. I'm old school, I like old school things. Dr Martens, aviators, that gold Casio watch. I want them all!
 Image courtesy of... Google images, I believe. Sorry, I saved these in my folder when I was young and full of naivite.. nah. It was the beginning of this year when I hadn't started my blog, and I've since forgotten where I took them from!

Okalydokaly, that's all from my wishlist. Of course I wont be getting all of these presents, but just a few would be nice!
So tell me lovelies, what's on your wishlist?

a pretty bow on my cardi.

Hello lovelies!
You know what? Since creating this blog, I've realised I basically don't wear an outfit without a bit of the colour black in it. Even in summer! I'm working on it though, especially because my wardrobe consists of only neutral colours, black/grey/white and navy and creams, with the addition of pink from time to time. I'm working on incorporating more bold stand-out
colours for this season, maybe red. This outfit is very typical of me; tights and socks are my current favourite look.
Jumpsuit: Live
Cardigan: Valleygirl
Bow clip (on cardigan): Sportsgirl
Socks: Sox
Heels: Zoe Wittner

Most of this post is prewritten as I so cleverly predicted that I wouldn't have much Internet access. I'm actually recovering from a loooooong night out at darling harbour, currently lying on my uncle's couch at 7 in the morning. Oh, and typing on this iPad is super difficult especially for the least techno-savvy person to everbtouch an iPad! Sydney's been hectic, so much busier and more populous than where I reside, and the shopping is so. Much. Better.
I've gotta get up now, it's a long day ahead, I'm visiting two shopping centers then lunch, then late night at the harbour!
A big hello to my newest followers, and Dylana if you're reading, I can't believe you're following me! You're so stylish!
Love you all!

zebra stripes.

Hello my dears!
I'm back with another outfit post! This jacket is totally lustworthy and so comfy to boot; pairing it with socks and heels, ripped cut-offs and blood-red nail polish, however, led to my sister questioning if I was confused about the weather or just an appropriate place to wear a semi-formal grunge/high class stripy zebra outfit. I laughed. I still like it.Photobucket

Jacket: Overseas
Singlet: Witchery
Cut-offs: Bardot
Knee-high socks (not worn knee-high because I find it uncomfy, haha): Sox (stall in shopping centre)
Booties: Review (over-wearing these, but they are the comfiest heels ever.)
Ring: Diva

In other news, I'm going to Sydney tomorrow! YAYYYYY. It's gonna be just like a roadtrip with the sisters, except none of us can drive and we're going by plane, and we'll be staying with some family, so really it's not like a roadtrip, but it's gonna be so exciting. I'm not making much sense today, and it's probably 'cause I'm in staying-up-late-hence-sleep-deprived holiday mode right now. This happens, everytime. And I always, always say I'll sleep well and be all healthy and get fit and shiz, but um.. it just doesn't work out. But anyway, I'll be absent for around two weeks, so stay safe and happy holidays, y'all! Thanks for following me my dears!

Oh, by the way, I am sooo bad at editing photos; I always end up lightening it too much, so no editing from now on. Also, it's because I'm lazy, hahaha.

oversized.

Hello everyone! This is a super quick post (they always seem to be!) of a super simple outfit I tend to sport in the winter. It's meant to be spring where I am right now, but recently there have been some chilly days. Why does winter always come back to haunt me? Just get out of my life. This is just something I'd wear on a day to day basis, because oversized jumpers and thick knit scarves are just too cool for school. It's not the most interesting of outfits but I've been so unmotivated to wear anything but.

Jumper: Bonds
Scarf: Live
Suede boots: Rubi

Just so you are all updated with my extremely interesting life thus far, I FINISHED YEAR 11!
Excitements and smiles all 'round, lovelies ! I'm meant to still have seminars and an end of year 11 lunch, but I'm ditching that in favour of a much needed vacation, just interstate. It's nothing special but I'm excited nonetheless. I must be off to finish the latest episodes of Gossip Girl. I've missed so much thanks to exams but the intense Blair&Chuck dynamic; that's what I live for. They really need to just get married and live happily ever after in a massive castle decked with pretty vintage pieces and designer brands. Love them.

sister's grad!

Hello my lovelies,
and a warm welcome to my newest followers, you know who you are!
Last night was my sister's graduation, and a facebook update by her not long after the night ended, reading, 'GRADUATED. WOOOOOOOO!', which received well over the usual amount of likes, just goes to show how relieved everyone was! Gosh the girls looked pretty, and the guys, they scraped up pretty damn well too.
I had basically no one I knew well; it's not often that siblings are only one school year apart; but ah thankfully, the bestie was there, phew.
Now onto some photos :)
the bestie
two gorgeous girls: sister's best friend, and sister (the one who unwillingly takes my outfit photos!)
my oldest sister and I

balloons, baby!
^Taking photos in the bathroom, chyeah, that's how we roll. The most attractive face I've ever thought to pull: the wink.

Some other snaps I took of well dressed seniors.




That just about wraps it up; pardon-moi for the photo spam. It's just past 1 in the morning where I am, and I feel as tired as Oreo must be after her afternoon frolick or, more precisely, vigorous hole-digging, pigeon-chasing, sun-baking in the backyard. That's a hell of a lot of exhuastion. Goodnight/morning/afternoon/evening to you, wherever you may be :)
Piles of love and laughter,

florals/chiffon.

Hey lovelies!
Quick outfit post today 'cause I've gotta run
..off to do some chemistry. UGH.
This week's been hectic, and I'm super busy, but I thought I'd update for all you readers!
A big hello to those who've joined my blog just recently, Thanks a bunch! ;)
Almost reaching 50 followers; albeit that isn't much, it's very surreal for me to think people around the world read my blog, thanks lovelies :)

part of my jewellery collection.

Hi lovelies!
So the title pretty much sums up what this post is about; this is just a tiny part of my jewellery collection: some of my silver rings and a couple of my favourite necklaces.







Yup, I hang my favourite jewellery on white letter blocks.. more specifically, a letter 'A' and 'Z'. My sister bought them for me to use as bookends, symbolising the start and end of the alphabet, but it looks so much more attractive adorned with jewellery. The rest of my jewellery go in plates and bowls (will show another time), I really need a proper stand though!

blissful.

I'VE FINISHED MATHS FOREVER. AND EVER.
done and done. The exam was pretty hard, but I don't care anymore; IM DONE.
WOOOOOO
That's all I really had to say.
PS: Excuse the uselessness of these two posts, folks.

pre-exam stress!

This post totally deserves an exclamation mark (!) as the end point to its title.
MY MATHS EXAM IS TOMORROW. YR 12 MATHS EXAM. calculus, integration, matrices, exponentials, statistics, binomials; I think a part of me just died.
What I've realised:
I'm a silly year 11 for even thinking I could cope.
I hate maths and am not as good as I thought at it.
I would like to crawl into a hole and hibernate until summer break (which is three long yr 11-exams-filled weeks away- so close!) right now.
...

I've got the maths exam this week, then I've got to catch up on all my yr 11 schoolwork (since I - just as the rest of my accelerated yr 11 math class - have only focused on mathsmathsmaths for this whole term), then I've got my yr 11 exams, and finally pre-senior year seminars..blah blah blahhhhhhhhh

Enough of the procrastination/useless rant, back to work.
Will be back soon with a more optimistic/less melodramatic post!

cream cardis.

Hello lovelies!
So.. super quick post today; there's a lot of homework on my to-do list.. it doesn't help that I like to be really organised and finish assignments the day they are given out.. hahahha.
Anywho, wore this recently to a family gathering. I love this new cardigan, the photos don't do it justice one bit, it's actually really thick and drape-y and sooo comfortable.

Best be off now; there's really not much time left before my exam.. and I don't want to have gone through a whole year of maths and end up with a terrible score! I'll be back next month with some more outfit posts, so do stick around :)
Thanks for all the support, lovelies!
