I was meant to post this kind of re-cap last week, so now it's the best and worst of the past two weeks. I also promised Elliot and John that I would post a photo of them after several dozen photos were taken and I'm not one to break promises. So far September has been busier than anticipated and I've found myself savouring the moments I have alone to just blob out and have nothing on my mind. Seriously though, I pulled down all the months of the year we've passed yesterday and it's kind of freaking me out that there are only 3 and a bit left. Today's going to be spent mulling over the rest of my uni work before I finish next month and working through a whole lot of emails that I have yet to reply to. Highs and lows after the jump..
I am continually waiting and that just seems like a waste of time; I need to start doing. So, starting today, I'm going to make things happen. Run away from my comfort zone and move into the deep unknown. There's a quote that has popped up on my Tumblr feed that inspired this action and sort of hit a sore spot at the same time - "Don't live the same year 75 times and call it a life." I don't want to be the person that's just waiting for life to happen, and although my bubble is safe, there is no reward for those that don't take risks. On a side note, these shorts are insanely bright with the multi coloured leopard print. Not for the faint hearted, but they kind of match the transition into Spring perfectly. Clothes that reflect my decisions in life perhaps? The first step I think. Second is planning where i'll be working for the Summer and it's going to be exciting.
This week has been busy, and busy for me really just means stuff happened. I think I try to convince myself that things are happening often but really it's just me stressing about the work I should be doing while I'm sitting through three seasons of Gossip Girl. Everyone's priorities are different right? Well between university, birthday, exercise, shopping, food and travel I can officially say that this week has been packed. Food definitely needed it's own category by the way because, well, you will see. If anything this week, I have learned that as you grow older you can just become cynical. Become convinced the world has dealt you a bad set of cards and you could have had so much better; but living like this robs you of a positive outlook on every single little thing. Perspective is everything guys. It's the difference between wallowing in self pity and changing a bad situation into an opportunity. Success isn't just measured by money in pockets. End of rant. I'm tired and feeling sentimental and I need to go to bed, but I won a scarf tonight. Yay.
Sorry for leaving you for too long, but I couldn't celebrate the birthday without a post. I'm having a pretty low key 21st, but that's the way I like it. I'm actually celebrating with friends properly tomorrow, but for today I'm just going to go on an adventure on this gorgeous spring day and go for dinner with the fam tonight. Here's a quick insta-outfit for you since I don't have time to take photos on my camera. I received this Reformation skirt a few days ago and I have been dying to wear it - I don't know why but it kind of reminds me of a strawberry patch or one of those baskets you give someone jam in?? Who knows, it's cute. I'll most likely be posting a bit on Instagram, so feel free to check it out if you'd like. Also, for so long I've been posting kind of white/clean looking posts but I feel like I just want to change it to everyday life posts because otherwise I feel like
I'm restricted in what I can post. Anyway, I hope you all have a great day like I will!
Here are my top picks for the materialistic girl in me, completely disregarding everything I just said. I have to say the Karen Walker moon charm is something I've almost purchased too many times to count, just seeing it on there reminds me of the quote "we are always haunted most by the purchases we didn't make", ugh might just have to bite the bullet because it really has played on my mind for years. That and the botanic range rings. I can't celebrate the day without treating myself right? Those or as many new MAC lipsticks or eyeshadows as my shoppers guilt allows.. I didn't really know how to organise it all, so click on the numbers for links - it's a lucky dip! Click here for full list
