February Faves

Being the shortest month of the year, February felt almost non existent. But at the same time, it also felt like one of the longest months as it was a month full of departures for me. In saying that, I had a lot of free time this month and spent a lot of days browsing endlessly and I managed to find a lot of fave goodies. I’ve divided it into categories because I do have quite a few to share and thought it would be easier to read this way. Enjoy! To Read: We need to talk about Kevin I purchased this book in December and only got into it this month once the festive holiday season died down and found myself being so attached to it. It’s a psychological drama (what a surprise) book that delves into the life of 15 year old Kevin who killed his classmates in a high school massacre. It’s written through letters in the perspective of his mother as she turns back to her past, her honest opinions on being a …

To New Beginnings…

We have survived 2016, in all it’s guts and glory. From the ascension of Donald Trump’s power to the passing of George Michael we are welcomed to a new year of new beginnings, aspirations, wise decisions and many SUCCESSES. It seems as though time has gained momentum and with each year passing, the days and months fly by so quickly it sometimes feel as though we’re living in a dream. Are we living or are we just going by the motion of the brevity of existence. It was almost yesterday where we welcomed 2016, celebrated Easter with family and friends, decked our houses in spooky Halloween decorations and joined in on the crazy Christmas shopping frenzy and here we are in the first month of the new year. A clean slate. This year should be a time to focus on ourselves and set adequate goals for ourselves. Whether it be something to prosper your study or work situation or for health gains, make sure that you write a detailed and well thought out plan. Let’s also …

Instagram Poems + Fake Friends

She had blue skin,  and so did he,  He kept it hid, and so did she,  They searched for blue, Their whole life through, Then passed right by- And never knew. This was a poem I read earlier today on Instagram (@emmamercury) and it stuck with me all day. It made me remember all those times when I would put on a ‘mask’ in front of people in a hopeless attempt to get them to like me more, thinking that they would be impressed or that I would become more popular, likeable and even beautiful. Now that I am 20, I’ve learnt a lot about myself and although I still have much much more to learn from, I feel that the me one, five and ten years ago was completely different than the person who I am today. So I’ve compiled a list of 7 things (to keep it short and sweet) of things that I have learnt over the brief period of years. Hope you enjoy xx You can’t get everyone to like you… and that’s …

A Picture Tells A Thousand Words.

People say that our life is but a mere interpretation, a huddle of our thoughts, emotions and stories melded into one. The saying ‘a picture tells a thousand words’ revealing how although we are all human, made of the same skin, flesh and bones living on this same Earth, our experiences are individually, drastically different. It’s kind of like art. How each viewer, staring at the exact same painting, visual or template will gather their own interpretation of what that ‘art’ is through their assortment of jumbled up personal experiences and viewpoints. I’m not exactly an ‘artsy’ person. I cannot and I really mean it when i say that I cannot draw to save the life of me (and the whole human race if ever I was presented in that dilemma). However, when I visited the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney yesterday, it was overall a lovely experience and I soaked in as much as I could. There were 2 levels of artwork pieces sprawled throughout, and the main theme centering the art space …

Winter Must-Haves 2015

Winter has officially arrived in the land down under… And i’m already missing Summer ='( We are now halfway through with the year which is totally so surprising as reflecting on 2015 so far, it felt like last week where I was just beginning the first semester of uni. I was born in January so my disdain for the colder months of the year can be partly blamed towards me being a Summer baby. My tan is slowly but surely disappearing, the only physical remnants I have of the lovely adventures I had over the course of this Summer. Speaking of disappearing, my summer body I’ve attained has also decided to leave upon the arrival of Winter. However, despite having to wear layers of clothing and suffering the beauty of looking like Rudolph everytime I go out, I must admit, winter does come with cute clothes and trends. So here we have it, my current favourite winter essential and faves of 2015. 1. Oversized Coat This is pretty much as crucial as wearing sunscreen for the …

Shattered glass

Another film review? Well i did explain in my introductory post that I’m an avid film enthusiast ^_^ As part of our uni task this week, we were assigned to watch the film ‘Shattered Glass’ directed by Billy Ray in 2003. And for once, this was homework that i DID NOT procrastinate and leave to the last minute…i mean how many students can say that watching a movie is considered homework? Anyway, the film follows the true life story (as soon as i see those words i automatically get fired up with excitement. Truth and real life event based stories are so much more fascinating to delve into) of Stephen Glass, a young journalist with more ambition  and creativity he can chew. He is a reporter for the ‘New Republic’; a magazine company renowned for it’s political awareness and credible news sources. However, we find out that something doesn’t really add up with Stephen’s colourful stories that he is producing week out. He is an entertaining story-teller who manages to find the best sources and …
