I've tried to write this post too many times and it's getting late, so this is going to be short. By the next post, I will have finished my exams for the year and heaps of work and exciting plans will finally get some much needed attention. I've been particularly inspired by this playlist I found on Spotify and it's pretty crazy how a different genre of music can change your mood entirely, and mindset. Some food for thought the next time you find your head feels too heavy and your mind too empty. Fresh outlook in any situation has an infinite value when you're only looking at what's in front of you.
Life easily becomes overwhelming. I often have a million and one things I want to do, written down on an endless list that eventually finds itself hiding as a bookmark in a magazine; quickly forgotten underneath my bed. Writing things down is an easily way to de-clutter the mess that is my brain. I don't know why it's so easy to get caught up in the idea of something that hasn't even happened. I'm not one for holding on to quotes, but this one reminds me to just do what I can, today (e.g. study for EXAMS). If lists and quotes don't work, a few wines is always a fail safe..

These Coop shorts are too cute! I've been shying away from prints lately, opting for more monochromatic palettes and basics for the spring time, but these are a nice balance because they easily match items you already have in your closet. I actually made the necklaces beneath and I think I'm going to sell some of them after my final exams next week, so watch this space for updates on that. I really suck at studying though, but it makes it a little easier when one of your exams are on post-feminist ideals in movies, and so I'm just here in bed watching Pretty Women and Sex in the City, analysing all the clothes - here's hoping all the 'hard work' will pay off when the time comes. University really isn't as boring as I expected it to be.

I hadn't done one in a while and so I thought I may as do another re-cap slash I haven't done one in so long I could really just be doing monthly ones. To be honest I haven't really been up to much and I've forgotten a lot of it. I attribute that to the excessive amount of caffeine and lack of sleep and books, like, they really mess with my train of thought; not to mention dreams. So here's what I can remember guys, continue reading after the jump..

It's nearly midnight, I'm sitting here watching re-runs of 90210 and not so secretly wishing I could just up and move to live by the beach. It's actually so weird to watch this all over again when it takes me back to sitting in high school, streaming episode after episode during almost every period. Needless to say procrastination isn't a newly acquired talent of mine. There have been some dreamy editorials popping up lately, of course Anja is always gorgeous, but I've also been unhealthily obsessed with Ania's make up skills; she highlights faces like no other. After seeing these photos I'm seriously considering moving to Australia for the Summer... it's such a commitment though and that's one thing I don't do well. Eek... what to do...
