this little number was an impulse buy the other day. well, however impulsive, it was completely necessary. you see i arrived at uni wearing that vintage dress that belongs to my sister’s boyfriend’s mum (which i’ve shown you twice in my life) and as i was sitting down, the strap broke. the most ridiculous thing was that i was mid conversation and by no means engaged in any sort of vigorous movement. merely picking up my bag, and there she went. noww i was just about to go on stage for a mini concert we had. rather than travel home to change i decided to roll down the road and use this inconvenience to my advantage – buy a new dress. so here we are, a few dollars too many later, and i have myself some pretty new polka-dots to prance around in for the camera. it is definitely the longest dress i’ve ever worn to uni, so go me. realising that it’s okay for me to show only the lower half of my leg. people won’t think i’m completely midget. in fact. i’m the same height no matter what the length of my skirt/shorts. perhaps my short-things-elude-to-longer-legs theory is beginning to fail.

and there we go. i’ve yet again managed to discuss nothing is such detail. the dress is by salasai, and i purchased it at brave new world in northbridge. such a cute shop. i need to head in there more. that is, when there are sales.. okay. sorry the photos aren’t too thrilling, but you get the general classiness of this flowing number. that’s all for now,

Life and Love,  Outfits,  Summer

So it’s been a while. A few hectic things going on. (For starters, my little sister maxing out the internet usage again.) I’ve been in Bunbury as I said in my last post. Helping my dad move his shop into a brand new shop. It was lots of hard work, and so many darn things going wrong it’s a wonder his head hasn’t exploded. I’ve actually never seen anyone have so many questions thrown at him at once as my dad. Literally he needs to hide when (if) he eats lunch so he can finish it! He’s a great man :)
So anyway I’m right getting in to Christmas now, and what the heck, I can’t even believe how close it is. Looks to me like I’ll be a mad Christmas shopper running around on Christmas eve. There’s something about the Christmas shopping madness that kind of appeals to me however, so maybe I just might leave the shopping till very last! We put up our tree while listening (more singing on my behalf) to Mariah Carey’s christmas CD. So good!
Another thing, I auditioned for WAAPA. For those of you who don’t understand what that is – Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. It’s Australia’s best music school actually, and they go to every state to auditioned. Last year only 10 people from the whole of Australia were accepted in to the Contemporary Music Course (which is what I auditioned for, majoring in singing!) So I’ll keep you posted on how that goes, fingers crossed and hands together I’ll get in. Then this can become a famous lady’s blog and you’ll all be my faithful blog followers forever. awww. well, next thing…
I graduated form Bible College last week, with a Cert IV in youth ministry. YAY. It was really nice to be finished this year and thinking about amazing things for the future, yet I was so sad to be leaving that place. There’s just the best people there and it’s such a nice place to be. On Thursday night we had our graduation dinner and these are just a couple of photos with one my good friends, Zac, from after actually haha. And this dress was only $60!!

Be sure to hear from me soon. xx
