Gimme gimme gimme...

Top and Anorak from Ezibuy... first pair of shoes from Urban Outfitters (oh man I wish we had a store here!) and last pair of shoes from Royal T... oooh should I get them? Would I wear them? They're 25% off today. I'm tempted... ok I think I will. Hmm... although what happened to my last pair of shoes from there, they've never been worn they're too high! I'm about 7 foot tall in them!!

The 21st

So last weekend was the weekend of my 21st. My family came up, on Friday night, we had dinner, and Saturday we partied. Was a really fun weekend but exhausting at the same time!
Above is my cousin and myself. We're dorks. 

My mum, dad and myself. I think I'm the normal one. O_o

The birthday cake - I'm still trying to get through it, there's a 1/4 left! It's so sickly sweet and the icing is amazing! 

Sooo full.

El Horno (The Oven in Spanish - yeah I know!) was where we had the party. The Sangria's were in JARS. I love it. When I buy a house, I'm going to have jam jars as glasses. And vases.Very Stolen Girlfriends Club Runway show. 

Speeches were lots of fun. Mat is in the background, playing 'Happy Birthday' On the piano. What a sweetie. 

Getting ready for the 21 shots of sickly sweetness - they were like syrup. Don't worry, they were shaker shots. Still felt sick afterward though.

Down the hatch.

All done! By the way, the barman was called 'Ben Harper' - yeah we wanted his signature too. 

Finally - I've been obsessed with shirts. Denim, beige, khaki, cream - you name it. Loving tab-sleeve, loose fitting ones. I think I'll be wearing them throughout spring and summer. They're just so handy! I need to figure out more ways to wear them though.

I've started going back to the gym. Feeling sore, but good. Really wish I was swimming instead though. I think I need to buy myself a cute swimming cap and a new one-piece.

Lomo Love

1. Flying home over the Southern Alps
2. The council flats across from my apartment block.
3. Skiing - you can't see it but we were above the clouds and they were a beautiful shade of pink. So delicate. 
4. Flying in the small airplane my parents fly, around the alps again. 
5. The plane we flew in. 
6. Me, Rose, and Tori - school friends. :D 
7. Rose and I - her 21st birthday party. Love that girl.

These were all taken on my Holga camera - I just got them back, they all came out beautifully - I love the square format much more than regular format. :)

Somebody to love

Top from Max - it has sail boats on it!! So cute.

Cute nude skirts from Portmans - I'm obsessed with nude colours.

Shirts also from Portmans - notice the neutral colours?

Again, dresses from Portmans... oh so pretty. Can imagine the stripy one on a sail boat with red shoes and a red cardi...

Bag I'm buying from Witchery - I have been looking forever for a good quality leather bag that will fit my laptop for Uni. this is huge, and I'm willing to pay the price for it...

My latest list of wants. If I did buy all this though, I'd be broke. I was flicking through the latest Vogue Australia and in one of the trends section it showed most of the trends I'd been wearing lately: Nudes, denim shirts, military and stripes. 

Hope everyone has a good weekend, I'm going to my friends 21st tomorrow night. I went to the dentist today and he pulled out one of my wisdom teeth. Owch. Then I'm flying back to Wellington on Sunday afternoon.

Semester starts on Monday! I'm taking 3 papers, Psychology crime & law, Advanced Research Methods (ew, mandatory), and HR: Remuneration and Rewards. Should be an interesting semester.

Just some photo's from home and what I did today - What I wore: Zara skirt, Glassons denim shirt, silver jewelery from various places.

1. trying to do the 'pose' all these fashion bloggers do... did I get it? 
2. & 3. More poses/laughing.
4. Driving mum's new 2005 BMW Convertible. Yeah, it's flash and fun to drive... tee hee. I'm not insured so we went out the backroads. 
5. Trying to get a new profile photo for facebook.
6. My kitty, Lucy, she's been sick (they say it's cancer) but she's bounced back so much, but she has lost a lot of weight. 
7. Some seeds mum was sprinkling in the garden.
8. Me in the plane mum and dad were flying - my family fly small planes. We went up to 8000 ft. So pretty but cold up there.
9. Lake Tekapo in all it's wintery goodness - so pretty. 
10. The mountains (part of the southern alps) were all covered in snow. Such a lovely time of year to go flying!

Some inspiration

Current book love - it's just been turned into a movie with Julia Roberts... Liz Gilbert has such a way with words to make you think about things without pushing it in your face, all the while being witty. Her time eating for pleasure in Italy, Praying in India and loving in Indonesia. Really easy read, but very enlightening. 

When I have a job with lots of money, I can't wait to decorate my house. It will be a renovation of beauty! And I'll have a linen closet like this where my sheets and towels match and everything is tied up in bundles.Via. Automatism.

Lonely hearts cut-out underwear... oh so prettttty.

Cute blouses and jean-shorts... so cute. I'm addicted to shirts at the moment.  Can't remember where the image is from, if it's yours, tell me. :)

I'm addicted to my Homography Holga camera - although the last batch of photo's came out blurry... I think I need to be using 800iso film... But anyway, isn't this a beautiful picture? It's the LA skyline via Lomography

  Really cool jeans from the label Cheap Monday which can be found at the store Stable in Wellington. I think I need to do this to my old distressed jeans... give them a new life. 

Cute outfit from Fashion is a Playground - she's so adorable and French. I'm teaching myself French online.

Beautiful photo of the Eiffel tower - also can't remember who took it, but it's so soft and pretty. 

Another of my favourite bloggers, Le Flassh - she has awesome style.

Just thought I'd share a few favourites and inspirations with you all... I've been a bit slack on the blogging front, but exams are over, and I'm home now! I have a week down here in the cold before starting uni again. It's my 21st birthday on the 12th of July! Eek! My party's on the 17th, I can't wait. :D
