the intense humming of death

The two week break from studying wasn't enough to do all the things I wanted to do on my list. I'm officially back into studying now, and from what is outlined for this semester it shall be a stressful and busy one. However, I am so ready to take it on and finish this year off on top of my A game. 
Last night I attended a close friends birthday party whom I haven't seen for about 6 months. It was a really odd feeling stepping foot into an unknown territory by myself, as this was not my sort of crowd. Being welcomed with open arms and having to explain why I went missing for a year was quite a warming feeling, as it showed they still care about my existence. I didn't stay for long though, due to work the next morning that had stopped me from staying late. I am also excited for August as not only is it three of my girls birthdays but also the biggest fashion show in Brisbane; The Mercedes Benz Fashion week kicks off, and cannot express how excited I am to be able to participate in such an event.

days of swine and roses

 Had the loveliest weekend spent with my closes girls. It was such a nice feeling catching up and being around people for a change. I've come to realise how much I miss interacting with other people, and meeting new people. I'm beginning to accept change and that being introduced to new things or people isn't so scary. It opens you up to more opportunities and friendships that can now develop and last for a life time. I've always been so independent and really kept my distance with being emotionally attached to people, as many have walked out of our lives. However, those who walk out are leaving new space for those who will walk in and make a new impact for the better or worst.

only theatre of pain

Getting the whole attending a funeral vibe with this outfit. Before most get worried about me being too exposed I did cover up with a nice coat that I shall not be taking off, whilst I run around doing my errands today. This outfit would also be half inspired by Dark Shadows, as my siblings and I got the chance to watch it yesterday night. Even with its bad reviews and not so hot rave, I found it absolutely good ! It was so enjoyable to watch even though it was semi horror at some scenes and the adult content was off the roof, I enjoyed the concept and theatrical element of the movie. Tim Burton never disappoints, so i don't know why everyones disappointed in the movie. What were they expecting though? Cause in my opinion the movie wasn't lacking anything. It had a good storyline, good acting and has Johnny Depp !!! Overall, i highly recommend you to watch it !

in the flat field

After a long and dreadful past week, I have finally reached the first day of my mid semester break !
This week will be all dedicated to making new items for my wardrobe, and possibly doing an everyday outfit post. Even though I am on break, my body clock doesn't seem to agree with me. I've been waking up at the ungodly early hours of the morning, and haven't been able to sleep in just as of yet. It also gives me the sudden realisation that I tend to get more things done when I wake up early with more time on my hands, instead of sleeping in and missing out on half of the day. Also thanks to the weather, it has made it a tad easier to get out of bed as it isn't freezing in the morning. Hoping the weather stays that way throughout the week as I really need to catch up with my friends, who I've neglected for awhile.

the haunted tea rooms

A casual day out with the family to embrace the only sunlight we've received this week. Not long to go til I am officially on holidays and can get my act together with my long list of sewing and designing new clothes for my closet. I've been adding new items here and there however I'm always feeling as though it is still empty. I especially hate it when I buy something and when I get home I  never end up wearing it and eventually the refund dates expires and I'm left with a garment I'm not satisfied with. This always happens whenever I buy T-shirts, it is so hard to find a nice T-shirt that could just go with jeans, skirts, and shorts. I usually buy a basic T-shirt and when I try it on with things in my closet it throws off my outfit. I think it's because T-shirts are too casual ? Or It could only be my styling of them. Still, I wish I was able to style them nicely, maybe some tips on this would be helpful? How do you wear your shirts?

ignore the machine

It has been one of those weeks where all you want to do on a Saturday night is lay in bed with a hot cup of tea watching a marathon of Fact or Fake: Paranormal Files. Or maybe it's just me and my ridiculous obsession with the paranormal stuff.
I could honestly say that I am one of the worst person to catch up with in terms of grabbing a coffee or a dinner date. I've promised to catch up with so many of my high school friends and have never been able to contact back with a definite date or answer. Life at the moment feels completely hectic and busy and no-one seems to see it except me. Everyday consists of Fashion college, fashion college, fashion college and exercising the stress away. To add to this, all my friends are currently on break for a month and I still have 2 weeks left and I only have a 2 week break. The even sadder news is that during the break I shall be working on some projects such as designing a bridal gown and running some fashion shoots down at the races, having no rest time at all! Life seems pretty hectic but it's what keeps me going. In the end i know it'll all be worth it. So I sincerely apologise to many who I've left hanging cause I know you do read my blog, I will make it up to you very soon.

fly on the windscreen

I recently dug up these old pair of black jeans from my mothers closet and have been convinced into buying new jeans. This might sound a bit crazy, but I do not own any pair of jeans. A good reason would be because I don't like denim pants or skirts, as I am terrible at styling with them. The only jean pants I would consider wearing would be black and possibly maroon. I've also been looking around to find myself the right pair, as the one I'm currently wearing fit very well around the hip however is very loose on my waist. I think the best investment would be to purchase a trouser pattern and make them myself or get them tailored made. Either way I've been sold on black jeans !

people in her mind

Hooray for the long weekend that will be spent catching up on sleep, with friends and the load of home work I've got piled up on my desk.
I will also be catching up on some sewing as I am running out of the basic garments required to layer up for the winter season. Been living off of black tights for the last week or so, as they're just so easy to dress with and go great with skirts. This also gives me good excuse to wear skirts during the winter, without looking like an idiot.
