New Shoes and Phone Booth Pictures

There are two parts to my post today- new shoes and some random pictures that I recently found on my computer which I would like to show.

Last week while shopping with Mum I bought some Diana Ferrari velvet ballet flats in red and teal blue. The purple pair I have had for a few months now which I posted here.The reason I bought two more pairs the other day was because they were on sale for the most incredible price of $18. I have watched these shoes come down in price continually for the last couple of months and my rationale was that how could I not buy Diana Ferrari leather shoes for $18? I worked out that the sale price was about 75% off the recommended retail price so I think this is the most amazing bargain I have ever found. I wish the pictures showed them better because they are stunning shoes in person. I hope to take some outfit pictures with them soon.

I bought the purple flats a couple of months ago.

With purple, red and teal blue I almost have the entire collection (minus the black which my sister ownes)

Recently I was sent these pictures from my sister which were taken at my 21st birthday a few months ago in Sydney City. I love these pictures and I just adore the telephone booths so I thought it would be fun to post them.




I'm going on holiday to Queensland on Wednesday and I will be away until Saturday. I didn't expect to be going away this university break and I only found out about this trip a week ago. Although it is a very short trip I still think it will be fun and I am looking forward to it. I will enjoy the chance for some slightly warmer weather than the cold and rain that is frequently in Sydney at the moment. The only downside is that we will be leaving around 5am! which will be a challenge since I usually sleep until 12pm. I will hopefully post while I am away even if it is short but if I don't get the chance then you will hear from me on the weekend.

Also, I recently received my university results and I am so incredibly pleased. I received three credits and a distinction which is far beyond anything that I expected of myself. The struggles and feelings that I posted about frequently during the last academic semester had large impacts on my life and were very real so, given these circumstances, I cannot believe that those were my results. I am still coming to terms with it. I would have been fine with passes so I am extremely happy with three credits and a distinction. It is such a relief to know that so many things are in the past and no longer matter because it has been translated into results with I am so pleased with. This means that I have officially completed half a law degree. I know another two and a half years is a long time but the half way point finally signifies that I am getting somewhere.

Sorry that I have behind in commenting and replying to emails. You will hear from me soon.

Thanks for your comment Imogen.
Only my closest friends, my mum and bf read my blog. I recon your friends would love your blog :) but I know some people have unjustified opinions on blogging too.
Hope you are still enjoying your uni break!
