Taking a Break

I just wanted to let you all know that I am taking a break from blogging. It will only be a short break; I'll be back in one or two weeks, but I am too busy right now with wedding preparation, finding a place to live and getting a job. I am getting married on Saturday. I'll have a lot of news and photos for when I return.


Talk soon xoxox

On Saturday night I had the opportunity to wear my peacock dress for the first time for my hens night. It is probably my favourite dress at the moment; I love the strapless design, the peacock pattern and the colour scheme.  We decided to have a morocan themed party on Saturday; which was somewhat inspired by the second Sex and the City movie. It was such a cool idea, a little bit different too, and all the decorations and detailings were so well thought out. We also had a beautician so I really enjoyed having a massage. I had a fun night; I really wish it didn't have to end so quickly. I hope I can get some more photos of the night from others which I will post at a later stage. During the day, while I was instructed to keep out of the house so the decorartions would be a surprise, I had my makeup done professionally and got eyelash extensions for the wedding. That was a great experience and a nice treat; I love the thickness of the eyelashes. 

The countdown is really on. I'm getting married in just under two weeks.

Item of the Week 026

I finished my law degree on Tuesday which is very exciting news. I absolutely cannot believe it; after five years at university I thought it would never come to an end. I wanted to quit so many times, I hated it so very much that I couldn't be happier it's over. I have no idea what I'm going to do with my life now; I have no jobs or further study lined up and I'm not at all interested in the law, but that's ok because for now just having a law degree is a big enough achievement. I am so surprised that I got through it; I never thought I'd be able to. I'm just an average girl and I feel so out of my league with law degrees so it is very amazing for me. In celebration of completing my degree Rydog bought my this incredibly exciting peacock dress that I've had my eye on for awhile now. It's from Dotti, as are most of my dresses this season; their range of dresses is unprecedented this year. It's my new favourite; I wish I could own everything in the store. I love the unique peacock print and the colours are really pretty together. I'm looking forward to wearing it for the first time which could well be this weekend.

DSCN2865On Sunday Rydog and I had an afternoon tea to celebrate our upcoming wedding. I guess one might call it a kitchen tea but, since I don't like a lot of the traditions associated with weddings, we kept it somewhat unconventional. My parents organised it and went to so much effort for me. I especially loved the pretty little tea cups and the macaroons, cupcakes and sushi. We also receieved many gifts for the house. I used to think that household items were kind of boring but that is definitely not the case. I like all my household items to be as colourful and patterned as possible and so far I've got quite a collection of cool items.  It made me realise that there are other exciting items to spend my money on other than clothes and shoes. At the afternoon tea, my parents asked everyone to write some advice about married life. My mum's advice was for me to stop buying clothes. Whatever for?!?! 

I bought this dress and cardigan awhile ago and I'd been saving them to wear today. It's interesting that I used to absolutely hate yellow but now I love it; I like how much of a statement a bright yellow cardigan can make. I love the sparkles on the cardigan too; they even matched my hairstyle which my mother in law kindly did for me. I'm planning to do a proper outfit post on my dress at a later stage; the back is interesting and I like the shape. I borrowed the shoes from my sister. We've both been in love with them ever since she bought them. I wish they were mine!
