I'M PURE AT HEART, IT REPELS THE DIRT.










.: bomber jacket, shorts (gifted) + shirt, Valleygirl | creepers, eBay :.

I think a blogger has finally shown dedication to their blog by wearing a jacket (which was very warm, might I add) in 30 degree Celcius weather.
Anyway, this location was perfect for this outfit because the colours really complemented the jacket which I'm really happy about. I decided to go plain on my shorts and my top obviously because I don't want to pattern-clash (though sometimes pattern-clashing does look good I just haven't mastered that yet) and because there's already a lot going on with my bomber jacket. I'm just going to say this now, but I love bomber jackets. They are my favourite things after laced tops. I've seen so many amazing patterns lately in stores and I just want them all! But I've been trying to not buy any clothes lately because I've been buying too much according to my mum.

Well, I hope you are all well! I start school in less than a week and I am definitely not excited, the holidays went by so fast!

Ciao for now,

P.S happy 'straya day my Aussie readers!

ABOUT ME TAG

Hey guys! To celebrate me getting TEEN VOGUE READER LOOK OF THE DAY (yes, I am very excited for this honour and oh my gosh, the late night spaz session I had when I found out via Maria that I won was very hectic.) I have done the about me tag! 
Anyway, let's get started!

1. Do you have a middle name? 
No, sadly I don't have a middle name :(

2. What is your favorite subject in school?
Hm, it'll probably either be Visual Arts, English or Design & Tech (though I didn't enjoy this as much as I would've liked because of my teacher)

3. Whats your favorite drink?
Oooh! I have quite a few, 
  • Lipton Virgin Mojito
  • Greentime Aloe Vera
  • Pink Grapefruit flavoured soda
  • Lemon Lime Bitters
  • Mango Smoothies
  • Chrysanthemum tea
and there's probably more because I absolutely love drinks but that's all I can think of right now!

4. What is your Favorite song at the moment?
The Last Time by Taylor Swift (ft. Gary Lightbody) and Tongue Tied by Grouplove

5. What would you name your kids?
I used to love the name Ophelia and I actually still do, but it sounds way too formal so I'm not sure if I would name my daughter that. Though I also really like the names Brynn, Leigh and Perrie for some reason. If I had a boy then I'd probably name him Jace (ha ha I think it's a really hot name though it may not be a good idea naming your kid after a character from your favourite book series), Connor or Christian.

6. Do you participate in any sports?
Not really, unless you count shopping? Jokes. I like playing soccer and cricket though I don't play them in my free time.

7. Favorite Book? 
Deadset the Mortal Instruments series and the Infernal Devices series both by Cassandra Clare. No doubt. But I also loved the series Airhead by Meg Cabot.

8. Favorite Color?
As cliche as this sounds, I really like ocean blue. And I like ultramarine violet too.

9. Favorite Animal?
I love Italian Greyhounds. 

10. Favorite Perfume? 
Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez (self-titled) fragrance and Green Tea Cherry Blossom by Elizabeth Arden. I generally like sweet scents. 

11. Favorite Holiday?
I love going back to Xi'an in China (where my relatives live) because I love living a different lifestyle and they have the best food there. It's really nice getting away from Australia and going overseas yet not temporarily being a tourist. 
oooops I thought this meant favourite holiday destination, anyway, my favourite holiday is definitely the summer holidays because it's super long and there's enough time to do everything I want!

12. Have you graduated high school?
No I haven't! Though due to my height some people assume I have which is really weird.

13. Have you ever been out of the country? if so how many times? 
Yes I have! I have been a couple of times, maybe 5?

14. Do you speak any other language?
I should be able to speak Chinese, but I'm not very good at all. I can speak a tiny bit of French as well. Oh, and English of course.

15. How many siblings do you have?
I have 2 sisters! 

16. What is your favorite store?
Lincraft, Priceline and Valleygirl!

17. Favorite restaurant? 
Kura Pyrmont which is this cute Japanese restaurant up the road from my house. 

18. Do you like school?
Not really but it depends; I find it really hard to concentrate so I usually sit in classes totally bored out of my mind. Not good.

19. Favorite youtuber? 
communitychannel, theellenshow or clothesencounters

20. Favorite movie?
Bridesmaids, Monte Carlo and UP

21. Favorite TV show? 
Gossip Girl, Adventure Time, Spongebob and Puberty Blues

22. PC or Mac?
Appearance-wise probably Mac but PC because I'm used to it.

23. What kind of phone do you have?
A really glitchy Samsung Galaxy Gio, lol.

24. How tall are you?
I am about 168cm tall!

OKAY! Well, that's it! I hope you enjoyed reading all of this!
And before I end this post I just wanted to say how awesome Yen Magazine is. It's probably even beating my love for Frankie because it incorporates more photography and fashion. The magazine is in the picture I took for this post. So if you're really wanting a new magazine to read, go check it out!  

Anyway, ciao for now!

THE STATE OF DREAMING







.: velvet top, minkpink | double slit skirt, ICE | creepers, eBay :.


Well, this is first outfit post of the new year and I am quite satisfied. I felt much like a vampire especially with these creepers on but I am in love with them! They arrived yesterday in the mail and I thought it was arriving in 2 more weeks so when they were there I was so damn excited!
And guess what? The skirt I'm wearing was half price ($13), the last one and it was my size! And on top of that, getting a black maxi skirt was right on top of my wishlist and it from ICE which is a store I rarely go in. Such destiny, me and this skirt. HAHA.

How have your holidays/start to new years been? I hope they're as good as mine!
I've found a new TV series to watch, and yes, it's ADVENTURE TIME! My friend gave me her DVD to borrow and I absolutely love it. Lumpy Space Princess is my favourite.

Oh, I finished Gossip Girl too, wow, I can't believe ______ is Gossip Girl! Not gonna say too much in case I spoil it but I loved the last episode, everyone seems so damn happy! I am not dealing with it ending very well though, I feel so empty!

Anyway, I hope everyone is well and smiling all the time! 

Ciao for now,

P.S. My outfit title is this Marina and the Diamonds song I am absolutely loving at the moment, check it out!
