Birthdays

Oh it has definitely been a busy week – this happened quite a few days ago and i still haven’t had time to post it! Last week it was Tom’s 20th birthday. He had work in the morning so i came over to his house in the afternoon to celebrate with him :) This is what i wore:

Vintage blazer, dress c/o ClubCouture,, Forever New belt, no name socks and Novo tan wedges
This is my favourite blazer and probably the only one that is not oversized and actually fits me perfectly. It’s actually from my mum (no wonder it fits so perfect) and when she gave it to me i found a 1990 metcard from when she used to wear it! Ever since discovering the metcard actually, i’ve been somewhat into vintage ephemera and would really like to start collecting vintage postcards, magazines, tickets, stamps and the like.
For Tom’s birthday i decided to make little decorated cupcakes with the help of my little sister who is like my baking teacher :P Here are a few photos of the journey from ingredients to completion. We used the recipe from the Australian Women’s Weekly ‘COOK’ which ended up being delicious.

Anyway i hope you all had a lovely Christmas and i hope to blog again soon :) Also, from your feedback, i’ve decided to open up a separate blog shop to sell some of my clothes (a lot being vintage and very special!) and hope to have it set up in the next month or two.

Urghh! It’s been a busy week! I’ve done five shifts at work this week and next week is going to be just the same. On monday Tom (the bfriend) and i attempted to drive down to a park we had in mind but instead got lost because of a road block and ended up at an even more beautiful and massive plot of parkland. There was so much grass and emptiness which i just love and i couldn’t help but take photos. I brought some extra sushi with me and we planned to have a picnic except a dog came and slobbered all over the glad wrap the sushi was wrapped in..ew.

May i repeat:
My friend and I had a baking day where we were going to make macaroons. It consisted of two failed attempts. The first attempt we used the wrong recipe and ended up with some prickly coconut thing. It did taste good however. The second attempt was just fail in itself. It was an extremely fun day which involved three visits to Coles cause we kept needing to buy ingredients!
Hope you enjoy this post! Maybe i’ll introduce you to some people in my life later on :) 
PS. Uni results came out a couple of weeks ago and i’m so happy to say that i passed all my subjects! Including this crappy accounting subject which had a black and white textbook and i thought i was going to fail in, yay! i passed :)
