just an update

well folks I'm still at my folks. I finally have dads laptop so I'm out on the veranda writing to all of you whilst being inspired by my super awesome fantabulous record player! I have raided my mums records and the first time I put the needle to the Neil young record I got shivers as I heard that crackle of the record and for a moment was lost in the sound. I cannot wait to build my own collection, I'm so excited.

Anyway, how was every ones Christmas? Did we have a great time? I had a somewhat different Christmas, but a fun one all the same. I cannot wait for ny eve and my masquerade ball! I am going to make my mask hopefully! I have some to die for shoes that I am itching to wear (other than around the house) from steve madden. What are your exciting plans? Hopefully something magnificent! Well I must be off, I will be sure to make a big BIG post filled with photos and tales from my adventures here at home. I need my mac, to do this, I am being re united on the 8th so watch this space till then.

I hope your time off is filled with fun and adventure like mine has been so far!! xo

On the road again...

So my loveys I'm off on my roadtrip with my companion (my IPOD.) So it will be a little while till I blog, but you will be getting a blog from my home town! yay! I just thought I would pop in and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe one! We all know how crazy it can get out on the roads at this time of year. I know I will be sure to take it steady. I will be sure to pop in before the new year and give you and update on my shinanigans at home! Hehe. A bit of a boring blog but I will be sure to make up for it. :)

Thats all for now,

7 sleeps...

Not only do I want this tee but I can relate to it and it breaks my heart a little bit.
Because I love you more than you will ever know.

I can't believe that it's only 7 sleeps till christmas. It has come up so quickly, it feels like only a week ago I was at uni, living on college and partying it up. Now at 21 I'm in my career and working full time, paying my way through life. Gosh I wish I could just pack up and travel somewhere, I feel like I need to be doing some traveling like everyone else. I am so jealous of everyone jetting off around the world, whilst I am here working.

Anyhoo I am high off cherries and rumballs, so I am going to do some of my TILT(taken from icing!), I havn't done one in a while. So here goes

so morbid but funny

  • Lindt Chocolate - yum got a box today from work
  • Cherries - have been eating so many!
  • This email

It's that time of year again. The wife has been on my case to get the Christmas lights up for a couple of weeks. They are up now and for some reason she will not talk to me.


  • The build up of christmas - I just really love the feeling in the air, I don't really know how to explain it, just how exciting it is. At 21 I'm still excited, I can't imagine how excited I was when I was little.
  • Gingerbread houses, I cannot wait to make mine. :)

  • The Grates
I have been listening to them all day at work, they just give me so much energy and enthusiasm. Patience is a crazy energizer bunny.

  • Roadtrips and road playlists - yay for my IPOD and car thingo that lets me play it in my car!!
On my list so far, there will be more to be added. I decided to go with the classic rock list mixed with some mod rock. All my faves something like this -

  1. Cailin - Unwritten Law
  2. Roadhouse Blues - The Doors
  3. Another Brick In the Wall - Pink Floyd
  4. Santa Monica - Everclear
  5. Even Flow - Pearl Jam
  6. Life Is a Highway (this is a given for any roadtrip)
  7. Where Is My Mind - The Pixies
  8. Bad Reputation - Joan Jett
  9. Tiny Dancer - Elton (Hello Almost Famous moment - my all time favourite movie!!)
  10. Time is Running Out - Muse
  11. Drown - Smashing Pumpkins
  12. and heaps more pumpkins love them
  13. Well thought out twinkles - silversun pickups
  14. and lots of the grates and butterfly effect
That is all for now, but you get the idea, I will be set on my 3 hour trip home for chrissy.

  • Movies you never get sick of ie - almost famous! - my girl - grease - white chicks - benchwarmers. hehe thats just a few
  • Bon Bons - can't wait for christmas, I hope we get the good ones with cool things inside.. :)
  • some fav arty things this is my sister, I got it put on an A1 canvas for her chrissy pressie...pic by me!
  • I just love the colours in This
  • Stunning pic here
  • Can I have this please?
  • or this?
  • Shopping, late night shopping tonight! :)
  • Getting paid to be on holidays and not paying for food because your at the parents house = shopping money for boxing day sales! heck yes.
  • Peoples mood because christmas is coming, everyone is so much more uplifted
  • Blogging while at naughty

Ummm so yep, thats it for today! yay so till another day sweet things.

the grass is always greener, just as hard to mow.

This morning has made me think and has put a lot into perspective. I get into such a state of hating my life, where I live, my job, body issues etc. But today, through several different happenings I have taken a step back and realised I am really ungrateful and I should be more greatful for what I have in life. My life at times may be hard, but is nothing in comparison to others out there and around me. I can sit and whinge that I wish I was more tanned, or had smaller feet, or was a size smaller...this in retrospect is so unbelievably insignificant and pathetic.

When you find out that a fighting fit 24 yr old has terminal cancer, it really sends a shock to your system. Makes you sit up and see how precious life can really be. He has 12 months to live, and I can't even begin to fathom how that must feel. It makes me a bit teary writing this, as I just feel so bad about being so self involved when there are people out there with such greater issues/problems than me.

I think basically I have written this mostly to re tell myself to embrace what I have, and spend my time on worthwhile things, not hating or arguing with people I love. Or even wasting energy on people that I may dislike, in the end it's not worth it. That is time you can never get back. You only have one life to live. So it seems to me it's best to just live it.

Sorry lovlies I'm sure there will be a brighter post tommorrow. Go home and give your loved ones a hug even if your mad at them, because you never know when it could be your last chance.

Love love love

this is my DA if you would like to look.

Love where art thou? I saw an elderly couple kiss the other day and I just thought awww, they were probably 80 and they were in a car park. They looked like two guilty teenagers when they realised I saw them. That's where my drawing came from, I just want someone that will love me till I get old and fragile and possibly senile! Some days at 21 I feel like I already am!

my fave love songs
what I would do for someone to write a song like this for me.
All I manage to find are sleazy guys in bars, somehow I don't think they will write a nice song like these for me. You never know, if they are drunk enough?? Haha I'm still waiting for my knight.

"For she came and landed in my arms,
And she filled my half empty cup.
Yes she filled my half empty cup."

"You are the strength, that keeps me walking.
You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.
You are the light to my soul.
You are my're everything."

"To see you when I wake up
Is a gift I didn't think could be real.
To know that you feel the same as I do
Is a three-fold, Utopian dream."

and then there's the plain heartbreak song.

"I don't know your timetable
I don't know your face off by heart
but I must admit that there is still a part of me
that thinks we might get on
that we could get on"
we get on - kate nash

loVE Seems to be everybodies muse.




I'm not sure what exactly provoked this, but anyhoo there it is my blog solely about love. haha.

What becomes of the broken hearted?

Like the title says

Ahh I have been late night shopping, battling the teenagers and the just as crazy mothers weilding trolleys or prams! I got myself a coffee and now I am buzzing. What better mood to be in that blogging mood. Actually I have been in quite a creative mood. I finally have a scanner! Hurrah! So you pretties can look forward to some of my arty bits and pieces on here. I have been lacking in inspiration, but I am slowly working towards regaining it. Anyhoo enough babbling here are a couple of pieces I mucked around with tonight.
looking very old worldy as a polaroid.

Bit of a doodle.
Really hope to get back into the swing of things.

"Its hard when youre stuck upon the shelf

I changed by not changing at all, small town predicts my fate"
Pearl Jam.

I didn't until tonight realise how relevant these lyrics are to me.

Good night lovlies. SweetDreams.

10 days!

10 days till I go up to the parents. I am really excited and cannot wait to see my puppy and take her for runs down the beach, sit amongst my rain forest and read, play in the sprinkler with my mum, drink coronas and champagne with strawberries. Life will be good in 10 days.

Welcome to my retreat.

Nawwww this is lucky. My baby.

Where I spend alot of my time.

I am a bit home sick at the moment, but this made me feel better knowing I will be able to be up there soon. It's always hard to leave again though..

That is all lovelies.

Hump Day

Why hello there,

Its been a slow slow week for me. Probably because I'm looking forward to the weekend so much. I'm at work and being a little sneaky, my colleague is out so I'm doing a catch up post. Nothing really exciting of note to tell. However I am getting that feeling in my stomach because I know christmas is coming. I really look forward to it, it's a day that I truly enjoy. Sounds so corny I know, but it's just a time when I'm with the family and I am really happy. We have quirky traditions that I love like boccee in the backyard, a blow up pool (its always a million degrees on christmas) A plentiful stock of caronas, great food (my parents are chefs) and smiles all around. This year I'm going all out, making rumballs, a gingerbread house, and decorating like crazy. It will be the 3 of us (oops 4 including lucky) but I have a feeling it will be better than ever. Righteo best wrap it up, I'm leaving you with some beautiful art I've found along the way.
