Party

Hello everyone, how was your weekend? I have had an extremely busy and eventful weekend. It was so tiring that, instead of completing my university work, I had to spend most of yesterday catching up on sleep, thinking and resting. I will hopefully catch up on my work but I just think that these sorts of days are necessary sometimes. I attended a few social events but the main one was an 80th birthday party. It really was a big event at a function venue and I very much enjoyed the chance to dress up in my Jools Couture dress for the first time. I received some compliments about my dress and one woman told me that it was the type of dress that she used to wear when she was young many years ago. I had planned to take some proper outfit pictures before this event but it was raining all day so there was absolutely no chance to do so but I have many pictures which were taken there. In case anyone was wondering there was a particular reason why Rydog was wearing such a colourful and out there shirt.

It feels like a very long time since I have written about my personal life and, even though my recent posts and pictures display positivity, I still have some issues. This year, without a doubt, has been the hardest year of my whole life. I have been attempting to get through university with nerves, anxiety and an extreme lack of motivation for the whole year with a degree that I really have no interest in. It is exhausting to try and push myself through everything. Also, there has been another almost year long circumstance that I have not yet shared on my blog. I may at a later time but not right now. Lets just say that it has challenged my values and beliefs and who I am as a person. It has made me feel that I no longer play the role in certain people's lives as I once did through no fault of my own and I am finding it almost impossible to accept certain things beyond my control. I know this is difficult to understand right now but it will make more sense later. This issue is so stressful and distracting for me at the moment and I wish things could go back to the way they were. I think that at the same time I am learning more about myself. Its another three and a half weeks until the end of the university semester and I am starting to worry about everything I need to complete. I hope that I can somehow get through the next few weeks because then I will be able to sort out my life and decide which direction I want to take. I know that once thats out of the way for the year I will feel better because I have events to look forward to. Summer in Australia is such a happy and amazing time of the year and Rydog is taking me away for the weekend once I finish exams. I'm also looking forward to spending more time on my blog.

Forever New

I adore the current collection at Forever New. I know I post these collections frequently but thats because I have been very impressed with this label for most of the year. It is definitely one of my favourite stores at the moment. Inspired by this collection, I am starting to like playsuits and maxi dresses a lot more. I still don't own either of them but maybe I will sometime.

Outfit

This weekend I decided to experiment with curly hair. My mum curled my hair because she is much better at hair styling than I am. I'm so pleased with the way it turned out especially since my hair has never been successfully curled before and it was far better than I ever expected. Its unbelievable how much thicker my hair looked and its interesting to see what it looked like shorter but without actually having to cut it. This is also a successful hairstyle because we used rollers which involved no heat so it was not damaging to my hair like straightening. I really hope I can style my hair like this reasonably often. On Saturday I went shopping but to a different centre for a change and at night I went to a see a movie and for dinner. It was a fun weekend and I wish it wasn't over.

The print on my dress doesn't show up particularly well but there are close ups in one of my previous posts from a few weeks ago.

Holiday

Hello everyone, I hope you are having an enjoyable week. I've had a much better week than usual since I am away on a short holiday. I didn't expect to post so soon but I have some free time so I decided to show a few pictures of the beach. Unfortunately the weather is cold and windy so I have been unable to swim or spend time on the beach. This weather is not particularly desirable when I only packed summer dresses. I can imagine that this beach would be beautiful during summer time. Today I went shopping and, even though the shops are very disapointing here, I did buy some jeans. As you probably know, I almost never wear jeans but I hope that having a proper pair that fits well may encourage me to wear them a little more. I will still wear dresses mainly though because I like having a definite style.

Its a long weekend here in Australia so that should be fun. I really hope that I can somehow motivate myself to complete the small amount of work that I have due next Tuesday when I return to university.
