Hello everyone. I wore this outfit on Tuesday for the Australia Day holiday and celebrations. In the afternoon I attended a BBQ with Rydog and his family and in the evening I had a seafood meal with my family. It was a fun and eventful day and I wish it didn't go so fast or have to end so soon. The weather was extremely hot on Tuesday which I thought was very iconic for Australia Day.
The dress and jacket are new clothes which I received earlier in the week when I went shopping with Rydog's family. I also receieved a few other items which I will most likely post here at some point. Everything is from my favourite shop Bardot and is inspired by the increasingly popular nautical trend and the contrasting of red and blue. The dress is possibilty my favourite item although it is a difficult choice and it makes me wonder why I haven't bought more strapless dresses in the past. I am extremely appreciative of receiving all of these gifts and I hope there is some way that I can demonstrate this more at some point. It was such a wonderful surprise and very kind and generous.
I recently enrolled and registered for another year at university and the reality of returning to studying in just a few weeks is starting to set in. I'm not looking forward to this year at university and I am quite worried about how difficult it will be and how much work I will be required to complete. I think that third year is becoming quite serious now and a few people I know in older years have told me that this year will be hard. I am trying not to think about it too much at the moment and I really want to value and enjoy the next few weeks. Its interesting how differently we look at things sometimes. Last year when I was at university I would have given almost anything for a weekend completely free of study where I could relax, watch movies, browse the Internet or sleep but these holidays I have occassionally felt bored or negative when an uneventful weekend without anything planned arrives. I guess there are diminishing marginal benefits as one is presented with additional free days but it is this sort of attitude that I feel bad about. Although I have thoroughly enjoyed the holidays I wish I understood the true value of them at the time and could have appeciated certain things more. I know that once I return to university I will be wishing more than anything to turn back time to the beginning of the summer holidays and I even desire that now. My hope for the next few weeks is to appreciate the true value and gain more satisfaction from the simple things in life.
My greatest wish is that time would stand still...even just for a short while.
I also received the Kreativ Blogger Award from my friend Rose at Roses r Red. Thank you very much lovely! I adore Rose's blog and I definately think it is one of the best out there. It is always inspirational and creative and I love reading about all her latest activities so I definitely suggest you take a look if you have not done so already.
