NEWTOWN FESTIVAL + NINA'S

Today I went to the Newtown Festival with my dear friend Nina! It was so mega fun and we had such an awesome day of dying in the sun, wandering through the many stalls at the festival, looking at the amazing things on King Street + licking our Max Brenners plate clean, chilling at Nina's house and having Vietnamese food for dinner! What a day.


This is how many people there were at about 12 and this is how many people there were at about 2...


How crazy is that?! Imagine losing someone in that crowd. 










Pictures of some of the picture-worthy things at the stalls! There was some amazing stuff, but I didn't buy anything because there wasn't anything I particularly liked so much that I needed to buy, so yeah. 


There were free Iced Tea samples at the festival! It was the Virgin Cocktail range and I really liked the Mojito one, anyway, this was Nina's favourite part because there was a free photo booth at the stall! I look like a total idiot in the last one because I was staring at something on the floor and then the photo was taken... Oops. And even though Nina was laughing at me in the last one she still looked gorgeous!

So after about 3 hours of browsing (I don't even know why we took that long!) we decided to browse stores on King Street and eat at Max Brenners, it was so delicious we literally licked the plate clean and we looked totally uncivilised! Oh well, at least we enjoyed it. 


Our day continued further by going to Nina's house! Here are some pictures of her room because it is so pretty, she has motivated me to start organising my stuff.




And then heart bokeh of her fairy lights because I was showing her how it's done :) 


Well, those are basically some of the photos from our day, and now I am so exhausted, but I had such an enchanting time! 
I hope you guys have had a lovely weekend,

Ciao for now,

CITY

Hello once again, yes I know, two posts in one day but whatever! I promised Anna I'd make a post on our lovely day and here it is.
So, me and Anna went to the city after school today and we (well, I) decided that it'll be a good idea to change into some casual clothes because our uniform is brown and yeah just already sounds unattractive, but indeed it is a very unattractive uniform. We had loads of fun wandering around the city looking at pretty clothing and eating MOOCHI (frozen yoghurt) and I bought 2 things!


I bought a pair of $5 earrings (from EQUIP, the place where I buy almost all my earrings from because there are really amazing things in their sale stock) and some false lashes because I just felt I needed some to add to my make-up stash.
Anyway, as I said in my previous post you'll be meeting Anna, so here are the selfies we took near MYER...


How gorgeous is her smile! Well, I really should be doing some homework because I've been editing photos all night so ciao for now!

AS BLUE AS THE SEA








.: hat, rubi (from my friend Tina hehe) | chiffon top, valleygirl | velvet skirt, diy :.

Hey guys! I've had such a splendid post-exam time making a skirt! A few of my friends have mentioned me posting a tutorial for how I made it, but unfortunately I didn't make it straight from my own brain (too amateur for that HAHA), I used fashiononymous' video tutorial to guide me; though I really do have some DIY projects that are up on my list that I will construct for you guys, and hopefully someone will watch/read them!
Today I went shopping with my beautiful friend Anna after school and this is what I wore (minus the hat)! I am actually in love with floppy hats because they suit almost every occasion. They can give you a summery look and is absolutely great to wear to the beach, they can give you a sophisticated look if paired with black maxi skirt/dress or it could just be worn casually on a sunny day with shorts and a top or something. Floppy hats are just great, and thanks to my other beautiful friend Tina for buying it for me for my birthday! Haha.

Anyway, I am actually just in love with the velvet skirt I made because navy is an amazing colour and because I made this all by myself and things always feel better when you make them yourself, don't you think? I think this skirt has gotten me in the mood to make more clothes :)

Okay, enough of my ramblings, I hope you all have had a really great day and keep smiling!
Ciao for now,

P.S Will be posting what I bought today + selfies + you will meet Anna. She is amazayn.

NEVER LET ME GO (HALLOWEEN THEMED)






.: shoes, from a friend | dress, valleygirl:.


Happy (post) Halloween! Unfortunately I didn't go trick-or-treating this year (or maybe that's a good thing so I can't get tempted by sugary lollies :P) though I really wanted to go! Oh well. Anyway, I was actually planning to do a casual look today but it somehow lead me to getting inspiration to look like some ghost/vampire and dancing around with 22 (by Taylor Swift) pumping loud. Trust me, dancing around looking like you've died 150 years ago is actually really fun, in my opinion that is.

I don't actually know who I am, though I thought I look liked some teenage girl that died from murder and was creeping back for revenge, but now I'm not too sure, opinions? 

My school is actually celebrating the spookiness next Thursday by holding a civi day (free dress day with a theme + gold coin donation to raise money for charity) and of course the theme is Halloween but I am going to dress up as a shadowhunter (a type of race from my favourite series' The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices) with my friend because we are obsessive fans like that.

+ my exams are over! Hooray! Now I can just sit back and rest before I need to stress over how bad my exam marks were.

Anyway, hope everyone has been having a wonderful week!
