There's a fire starting in my heart

The semester has come and gone, but it doesn't feel like it's over given that i still have to head back to uni everyday. The next 4 days or so will revolve around Photoshop, Garageband and Final Cut Pro. It's odd that i am actually looking forward to the next semester already. If i could, i would actually like to start straight away. Then again, a winter break away from the cold and mucking around back home doesn't sound too shabby as well. Might as well.

Miniature disasters

Spent my Saturday filming a one shot video for one of my assignments. It was quite an experience, I must say. And i thoroughly enjoyed the entire process of filming. Am considering in specialising in media next year.

{The very organised chaos on my desk at 4am}

And because I completed my Maurice Blanchot and David Foster Wallace essay this morning at 8am, I managed to actually have a life on a Sunday instead of panicking over the due date. I am mentally exhausted from all the end of semester assignments that seems to be taking over my life right now. It is all too overwhelming, but the only thing that's keeping my engine running is that I'm just 9 days away from home!

My hands are shaking

{Dress from Supre, Jacket: Topshop, Shoes: New Look}

I'm wearing all black (well, almost...) in preparation for my own funeral. It dawned upon me today after an awkward conversation with my tutor that the 50% assignment is due next friday together with the journal. And i thought that i have more time than that to complete it. How naive of me to think that our tutors actually have a heart. 
Here's to more late nights and eye bags galore!

Free falling

I can live in this knitted top for eternity. I kid you not

Character growth

An exceptionally wise friend told me tonight, 'Action speaks louder than daydreaming'. 
Randomly, I then thought to myself, if i were to be a character in a book, i would like to be portrayed as the one with character growth. Because i do feel that way about myself as of now.

 Before embarking on my education journey in melbourne, i was this person who wasn't passionate about just about anything and was somewhat living too comfortably in the arms of my family wrapped around me. Fast forward 1.5 years later, here i am, looking at certain things with a different perspective and with eyes unclouded. I'm not saying this with arrogance or anything like that, but rather, with utmost sincerity, on how much i've seen myself grown. I've lived and learned, and i am still learning. I don't need people to want to be like me, but instead, when they see my take on life, it will somehow transcend and change the way they see things (in a positive way, of course). There are many things which I do not comprehend, and will probably never will, but life is full of trial and errors, shit happens, to that, we should all take it with a pinch of salt, pick ourselves up and walk on with our heads held high. 

So here's to me, to you, and to whoever else, to a life of trial and errors, with mistakes not weighing us down, but pushing us to improve on ourselves. No more self-pitying or indulging in negative thoughts/feelings. To things that are so much more worth living for.

Catastrophe awaits us

 Très simple outfits for uni. I initially thought that the denim on denim looked kinda strange on me, but heck, i ended up liking how the combination looked. It's definitely a style keeper for me, trend or no trend. And the knitted top has been such a wardrobe staple! Two thumbs up that uni is over for this week! :D

On love

It was a strange thing. I was walking down near the railway station with a girlfriend and this boy said, "Mind the mud, girls," and it hadn't been raining and I thought, now, there's something going on here. Then he bought us coffee and I said to him later, after we were married, that must have been the dearest cup of coffee he has ever bought. He had beautiful brown eyes.

Ghost of the past

You were a dream,
then a reality.
But now, only a memory.
I have no need, or room for the past. 
You are only but a memory.

It's not always black and white

Today's outfit to brave the cold
{Jacket - Subtitled, knitted top - Neon Hart, Inner singlet - General Pant's guys' section, Necklace - House of Harlow}

{Sensory lab @ David Jones}

And finally...

I've gone back to dyed hair just after 2.5 weeks of black hair. Well it's not actually totally dyed, just half of it. My ombre-esque hair. It was actually done out of impulse with Melissa on a less than busy weekend. I quite like the overall outcome of this, but am thinking of getting it lighter or maybe even turning the bottom pink. Should i?
Uni is in it's fullest swing with only 3 weeks of classes left. Here's to another week of craziness!

Miss Unkon Spring/Summer 2011/12

Credits to BreakfastWithAudrey.com, image credits to Sam Armstrong and James Wright.

Pastel colours, braids, ruffles, cut-outs with a tribal edge, Miss Unkon's Spring/Summer 2011/12 collection has fast become one of my favourite collection from the few that I've browsed through. I like how the easiness and flow that each garment gives, especially the cut-out dresses and tops. I also adore how girly this collection is! And I'm also going bananas for the braids! How I wish it's Spring/Summer in Melbourne right now.

Birds of the Summer

These was taken on a day I was out taking photos and getting ideas for my writing with photography assignment. Thank you Clyde for being such a sport and helping me out with this assignment! I am anticipating for 5pm tomorrow. It is the time I'm handing in my reflective piece and also, I can catch a breather for just a tiny bit. Time beckons, and I must go back to my work. *Cues Rebecca Black's 'Friday'

On Darren Criss

May I just digress from work for a minute to express my love for Darren Criss *swoons*. Yes, he is Blain Anderson from Glee. I don't usually go gaga over a celebrity actor or a celebrity anyone, but I think that he is too charismatic and irresistible! Serenade me with a song, Darren Criss, and I might just marry you! <3

Somewhere only we know

And if you have a minute, why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know.

Jameela Jamil in Aldo x Julian Louie


I love the simplicity of this outfit. I like how you can take a simple black dress and pair it with a statement shoe and still make the whole look absolutely stunning.  I am utterly fond of this pair of aldo x julian louie shoes.
