Trouble is a Friend

How beautiful are these photos from _cassia_ on Flickr? She seems to have an awesome colouring approach to her photos that make them look old and pastel. Beautiful. And they make me happy. She also has two etsy shops: Lola's Room and Cassia Beck Vintage Inspired Photography. I know I would love to own one (or three) of these to hang above my bed.

Right now I'm studying hard (hehe) on my psychology courses... I have to finish writing notes for this course before the end of today! I'm also half dreading and half excited about the return to Wellington this Sunday. Really don't want to deal with my flatmates, but really want to see other friends before they head home for summer.

Hope everyone is having a good week so far. :) x

Travel in Time

New Hair! - I decided to go a little lighter for summer so she put really subtle foils through it. I really like it and it feels so much more healthy. Note the fake ray-bans I got for $30.
Now I wanna fill you in on a little one of my favourite products. St Ives Swiss Vanilla Body Wash and Moisturiser. It smells SO great and feels like silk. So lovely.

I also bought these heels... they're like T-bars but heels! And actually quite comfortable. I thought it was about time I invested in some good black heels. I also saved on buying a sequened black vest. Kinda obsessed with sequins at the moment.

I am loving covering books at the moment, and I really need to buy some brown paper, some material and get my crafty hands out to cover my books I've got lying around. They really do make an interesting look, and makes them look uniform as well! I have a bunch of bright orange penguin classics that look horrible by themselves, but covered like this would be so cute! Book covers from Book City Jackets.

Also slightly dying inside for these cute necklaces. All from Wildpair. That also means I need to go and buy that jewelery holder that I liked so much...

I'm getting my hair done again on Friday (it's been far too long, being a student sucks when getting your hair done costs $110 here, let alone in the city where it's double that price). So I'm thinking I'll get it a little lighter for summer... about this shade.
And finally, I'm in love with vintage suitcases. I neeeed to go thrift shopping and buy some. Don't they just look awesome as decor? And you can use them as storage! Win-win!

Ahh... it feels good to have my creativity back.

Keep Breathing

When did growing up start to become so hard? Where was the transition from school kid to full blown adult who has to deal with problems yourself? I don't remember it happening.

Being an adult sucks. You have to worry when you're an adult.

Currently I'm worrying about where on earth I'm going to live next year. My flatmates, who I thought were friends, end up saying they don't want to flat with me next year. Oh, but they're staying in the flat that I found for them. No sweat. But if I were to stay, they'd easily move. Their reason? I'm sad. Heh. a) I had surgery this semester, b) my aunt is actually DYING and c) I have no one to talk to. Would have been nice to have someone to talk to, no? Some support maybe? Selfish.

So when I get back from my summer job, I get to sleep on a friends couch and try and find a flat that needs me. I finish work pretty much the week before I start classes. When am I going to be able to do that? To find a bed, a room, a life?

Things would be so much easier if I weren't by myself.

But I guess life happens, right? You have to get through it one way or the other. Hopefully some good will eventually come my way. Maybe my karma will change. I've always been good to people, yet nothing good really comes my way.

I'm alive

Above, one of my favourite people in the world, Jaime. We're such idiots. Love that girl. x

Sorry about the lack of updates, we've been scrounging internet, it seems like someone has hacked into our net in the middle of the night and stolen it. Yes. Not cool.

I started reading Eclipse (third book of the Twilight series) Friday afternoon. Finished it at 1am on Saturday. Good thing I don't have the next one yet, I have a test tomorrow on parasites for Biomed, so I've had to study for that.

Speaking of biomed, I really don't know how they expect us to remember the names of those things. It's a first year paper, and I really couldn't give a rats ass about the whole thing. I only took it as a filler. Probably should have just taken marketing in the end. Would have been more interesting. Now I'm just paranoid whenever I get a stomach ache that I've eaten a worm of some kind.

Two weeks of term left though! So excited to be going home over study break for two weeks, it will be so much easier to study at home, without my flatmates distracting me.

Then after my exams (I finish on the 14th, last day of exams, and seeing Rhys Darby, Murry from Flight of the Conchords, on the 13th. Yeah. Bad luck huh?) I'm heading up north to visit my friend Yasmin! Where she will show me some of the sights of the north, and a good time in Tauranga hopefully! Woo! Visit her blog. I then start work at Totaranui on the 1st December, my parents come up before Christmas and leave just before New Years, and I've got work till the end of February. 12 whole weeks!
