One of my favourite Kiwi designers, Cybele, just released their summer lookbook! I looove their dresses, they seem to be able to do anything with silk and prints. A few posts back, you can see my very first piece of theirs I bought from their Unity collection. I'm just in love with these prints and styles... so beautiful. 

I've had one exam down, one to go... I really can't be bothered anymore though... but I guess I'll just have to keep pushing through!

Someone else's story

 Unknown via Le Love.

I sometimes think a year seems like such a long time. A year, until I finish university. So much can happen in a year. But I want it to be over with so much. I want to go out and explore. Not have to be guilty about going out because I don't have any assignments due that week.

I want to travel. I want to see the world. I want to be busy. I want so much. 

I get in this mood during winter. Blah.

That Time

So... I just realized I have to do another semester at uni. Next year. Thought I'd actually finish my degree this year, but not so - due to the uni changing the points values on my courses. So. Two more semesters and 6 courses to go. 

More and more study. Yikes.

I think my flatmates are annoyed with me. Maybe. I forget things like what day the rubbish goes out. I really need reminders of stuff like that. Mind you, they need to put their dishes away more often.

I want this dress from Cybele for my 21st so much! It's batwing, and has a moth print! And it looks adorable with the booties that I just bought... 

I need to be put on a short leash with my spending habits right now... it's shocking. Although the dress has 25% off, and it's designer... and it's my favourite designer. They just KNOW how to make beautiful garments.

By the way, that photo was taken on my phone so you'll have to excuse the shoddy quality. 

In other news (however, still spending) I bought this Lomography camera on Trademe the other day! I've been wanting a lomo for a long time, and I've read the reviews on the Holga and they look good. I love film cameras and I really need to spend more time doing my hobby - it's good for me.

I'm going to SATC2 tonight with my friend and having cosmos after. So excited! My neck won't be as sore next time either. I was in the front row of the hugest theatre last time, it was disturbing. 

It's the end of the semester! I have an assignment due on Tuesday and then two exams! I'm excited! My HR lecturer gave us the questions already, we know 10 out of 17 are going to be on the exam, which is awesome, and Behaviour Analysis is just going to be scarily hard.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! It's Queens Birthday weekend here, so it's a long weekend... not that I will notice.

Isn't this so cute?! I so want a skirt like that!

When She Cries

I love these pictures from Heritage 1981's photoshoot - oh the clothes look so beautiful, and it's so warming to my rain-drenched heart. 

We've had 11 full days of wetness here in Wellington - Winter has hit. But it's not winter where you can wear nice coats and scarves with your hair down, it's winter where you have to wear rain jackets with hoods and can't have an umbrella cause it will turn inside out in the wind.

I did buy myself a pretty coat yesterday.. from Portmans.

It's actually navy blue. And you can't see in this picture, but it has a really wide collar - if I flick it up it's all 'HI Dracula!". Love it.

Hope everyone is having a lovely week. It's the last week of semester for me, so right now I should be studying for my test on Thursday... x
