Paisley is probably my favourite type of print right now. I've been thinking about buying a few paisley pieces since the beginning of the year. It's so damn... Cool. Although, in all honesty, I don't see myself wearing classic paisley any time soon. It's not quite me. I can only really fathom myself wearing less literal forms of the print.

I'm sort of over galaxy print. I've been obsessed with it ever since Christopher Kane did it for his 2011 Resort collection just over two years ago. I feel like it's no longer (for lack of a better word) fresh. I don't get excited seeing it anymore. Something needs to take its place. I'm putting my money on moons.

Ugh. So. Much. School. Hence the lack of posting (excluding tumblr, but that shit is easy... I can tumblr in my sleep).
Luckily for me, there's only a few assembly-filled days left to battle through. I'm not so much overwhelmed by the end-of-year workload (hey, I basically already have the highest endorsement), but completely overcome by the surreal nature of everything finally ending. I'm never going to be in high school ever again (unless something drastically unfavourable occurs - i.e. me becoming a teacher... OH GOD NO). I'm never going to fear detention again. I don't have to sit on the ground when I don't want to. I don't have to do rubbish duty...
I'd be lying if I said I was happy. I'm really not. I'm ECSTATIC!
But it's not over yet. I still have until Wednesday next week until I can finally deem myself a fully grown woman. So, enjoy this video whilst I recuperate my thoughts.
Check out my new tumblr. And if you have any questions, hello!

I’m not going to lie. Recently my life has been particularly unglamorous. I tend to be getting dressed out of my pyjamas around midday, and even then I’m simply changing into something remarkably similar in terms of respectability and taste (read: sack dresses and leggings as pants). However, I will make a point that for the past few days my hair has been fantastic. I did my first milk braid (see on my instagram) and instead of the usual chum (or chump), my mother has been calling me Helga. Upgrade? Probably.
So you may be wondering the reason for my life being about as fulfilling as a sea anemone’s… It is because I have three assignments to complete before school starts up again on Monday. It is particularly frightening, especially considering this work is the difference between getting a scholarship to university and not. Then there's the "BUT WHAT WILL I EVEN STUDY???" conundrum. I don't even know if I'm having a gap year (or three?).
Nonetheless, I’ve managed to force myself to do at least four hours work each day towards them (note: this may seem like not much, but considering how uninterested in the topics I am, I consider it a great accomplishment).
Enjoy some Kimbra. She's like totally used to live up the road from me (my claim to fame).
