Month: February 2015

Weekly Wardrobe.

February is coming to a near end, marking the official end of the Summer break holidays, and oh what an extraordinary series of 4 months it has been. The highlights definitely included my boyfriend and I’s one year anniversary, basking under the great Southern sun at Vaucluse beach Sydney and ending it with a romantically lit dinner at the Wharf, Christmas with my cousins, my 19th, clubbing with friends and of course, marking my boyfriend’s house as my official second home with all the countless lazy days we spend lounging around watching anime films and eating pizza. To accompany the beginning of the gloomy Autumn season, I have decided that the ‘black on black’ trend is surely appropriate.   It’s forever the style of sophistication with a hint of effortless. It represents the dullness of ‘uni-season’ without looking too much the part of a soured teen. If attending some uni/work related social work, I advise to stick to this trend of black glamour. Add a dash of bright lipstick or a pop colour through your accessories …

If It’s Not Okay Then It’s Not The End.

Am currently sitting against the sofa with my headphones in full blast listening to ‘Celtic Dream’ from Lord Of The Dance and am in such a trance of tranquility and meditative presence that I decided to write another article proclaiming the importance of self-love, self-belief and self-sacrifice. Maybe it’s the nostalgia sinking in because this heavenly piece was the song I grew up with, from the age of 3 where I would dance in front of the tv box and mimic the tap/ballet dancers as they floated across the stage almost like angels swirling hypnotically in heaven. Or maybe I’m just a bored, sappy 19 year old who has nothing better to do than attempt to sound wise and educate the cyber-world on the brevity of existence and pursuit of self-discovery through my antagonising didacticism. So basically, my life right now would seem pretty much perfect, I have an adoring boyfriend who treats me like a Queen, I’m studying a uni course which I absolutely enjoy, have a part-time job as an english tutor and …

C R O N U T S

Nothing more satisfying than a healthy salad of sweet pumpkin, quinoa, poached chicken, goji berries and beans with a Lavender fennel green tea topped with sugary deep-fried cronuts. At least I tried being healthy and sustaining my nutritious diet…at least I tried.

25 Questions.

I have written a whole list of potential blog articles that I have planned to write about.. so I’m really excited to announce that =) keep an eye out in the very near future! But as for now, I am sitting here sipping on Camomile tea out of regret for consuming nearly half a large pack of Thins Salt and Vinegar Chips (so much for my 2015 resolution to maintain a healthy and balanced diet…) answering the 25 qs tag i stumbled upon via Tumblr . Answering questions about myself is somewhat therapeutic to me…I don’t know exactly how or why, but a wave of nostalgia always arises whenever I describe my current passions or share stories about my childhood. Or maybe it’s because I’m studying to be a journalist and it’s nice to be able to be on the answering end of the agenda, showcasing my thoughts and recollections as though I have something poignant to say. who knows. WHAT IS YOUR MIDDLE NAME? Sadly I don’t have one WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE SUBJECT …

2015… A fresh new start ^_^

If you are reading this then you have successfully stumbled upon my blog. Congratulations! I’m really very awkward with introductions both in real life and through social media so let’s just get through the brief get-to-know-me part and move on to some real blog posts =) My name is Stephanie and I am 19 years old from Sydney (born and bred). My nationality is Chinese, German and Polish and I’ve only travelled to China (Shanghai and Beijing). One day I am hoping to visit Poland where my aunty currently resides to visit her in her cosy cottage as we sip on traditional coffee in front of a fireplace and discuss journalistic aspirations, dreams and listen to her stories. My blog expresses my mood towards certain periods of time, so don’t be surprised by my sudden changes in my style of blogging. One of my all time fav quotes is ‘success is the best revenge’ and i aim to become a successful, independent person who can look back and be proud of my achievements and the …
