Hair chalk

So I'm one of those people who gets bored with my hair pretty easily. I currently have shoulder length blonde hair (after a lengthly process of going back to blonde from black) and I want a change! My amazing hairdresser would probably shoot me if I went dark again after all her hard work, so I'm thinking of dipping into some hair chalk experimentation.
I love the subtle, colourful ombre that hair chalk can create, as shown in the pics below...

^^ I love this last look, and her hair colour and length is similar to mine so I'm excited to try it out!

Gossip Girl

So today I finally finished Gossip Girl. All 6 seasons done. It's funny because I always looked at the show with disdain (maybe because everyone was so into it and I wasn't allowed to watch it) and thought it looked like a stupid, cheesy soap opera. But once I started watching it this year, I got addicted. Well and truly. I can't really pinpoint what exactly it is about the show that I love so much. I don't particularly like any of the characters, and the storyline isn't all that amazing. I did, however, fall in love with the lives of the characters, so I guess that's it. Their clothes, their social calendar, the constant drama. I guess in a sense I was living vicariously through them, as it's so far from my own life. And in that sense it was escapism for me.

The final episode. My goodness. It was perfect.

A bit sad now that it's all over.

A completely boring browser history

Here are the websites I visit the most often:

Facebook - Unfortunately, I'm addicted. Have to check it multiple times a day.
Blogger - To keep you all in the loop. So this is clearly very important. I love to write, so this is a great forum to do so on an informal basis.
Google Plus - To edit the photos I put on my blog.
Hotmail - For obvious reasons. All that fan mail must be answered.

Here comes the sun - I love this blog unconditionally. It's just so beautifully done and the girl who writes it is a New Zealander so it has that local appeal. This blog is why I began blogging.
Nailed it NZ - My good friend Jessie's nail art site! She's amazingly talented and I always love to see her latest creations.

Asos - So much range and so cheap! Free shipping too which is a massive drawcard.
The Book Depository - Same deal as above but with books. Have purchased quite a few titles from this site. It's marvellous. Truly.
1day - A one day sale site that sometimes has deals worth looking at. Often provides terrible temptation by offering mass quantities of chocolate and sweets.
Grab One - Seldom any decent deals on here but I check it regularly via email subscription. Did have a lovely high tea last week that was purchased from this site so it's not entirely useless.

Project freeTV - To watch TV online.
Stuff - For news.
Buzzfeed - For hilarity in list form. Anyone who knows me knows that I am an avid list-writer and therefore can understand why this site has massive appeal for me.

Creating this list has made me realise just how boring of an internet existence I have. Please recommend some worthwhile sites for me to become addicted to. Please readers, help.

Pink lips, pink nails

So I'm heading to a 21st tonight (filled with nervous excitement) and have bought a new LBD for the occasion. I've decided to accessorize with a single chunky gold bangle, a gold heart necklace and little gold rings. I'm wearing my black strappy heels, and to add a pop of colour I have painted my toenails and fingernails bright pink and will wear my bright pink lipstick to match!

Le outfit
Le nails and lipstick (which you can't really see but it's very bright!)

I've tried the outfit on a few times and am happy with it so hopefully I can pull it off tonight! :)

Well hello there

Interesting things as of late:
  • Watched Memento for class yesterday. Brilliant movie, so intense and intellectual! Just how I like. I think Christopher Nolan is up there with my favourite directors. He must be one smart cookie.
  • Worked at an 80th birthday party last Saturday. The man whose birthday it was, Fred, was the sweetest little old man ever. He has Parkinsons and couldn't hold his drink for long due to shaking. So sad to see.
  • Bought a dress online the other day from Nasty Gal. Can't wait for it to turn up!
  • Going to a 21st this weekend that is going to be absolutely insane. Met the guys whose house it's being held at last weekend, such crack ups.
  • Two songs we are cranking a great deal lately: Gangnam Style and Feel Inside (and stuff like that). Also loving Pursuit of Happiness by Steve Aoki and Kid Cudi. 
  • Had the cutest Gilmore Girls date the other night. 3 of us (one being a boy) sprawled on my bed watching Lorelai and Rory go about their lives. Currently on the second season (I've seen them all multiple times) which I think is one of, if not, the best. I love Gilmore Girls, actually.
  • Despite sounding cheery above, in reality this is me a bit lately...
It hasn't been the best of weeks :(

A homage to Chuck Taylor

Chucks. Ya gotta love them. Having spanned generations, they are the ultimate go-to footwear. So comfortable and forever in fashion. I've been wearing my hi-tops quite a bit lately and have come to fully appreciate their brilliance. My pair are just plain navy blue, but I'm keen to get some patterned ones coz I've always been envious of my friends in Dunedin who have the coolest designs. Some meaaaaaan designs that I've been getting shoe-lust over lately:

Super Mario! So mint


Dr Seuss!

Stars n Stripes (love the vintage sorta look of these ones)

Christmas sorta print

Floral love

Aztec - probs my fav!

I salute you, Chuck Taylor, for your marvellous creation.

It amazes me how much of a roller-coaster ride of emotions the female mind can harbour in a small space of time. I experienced this over the weekend, and today. Actually, particularly today. There were times when I felt happy then nek minnit feeling all droopy and depressed. I hope this is normal for girls, and it's not just me.

Feelings of inadequacy - do you have these? feeling as though you wish you were as good/pretty/cool as someone else. people like her better than me. Constantly comparing yourself to others and the like. Gaaaah. It's like a competition and comparison trap, when you lose sight (or have not yet gained sight) or how awesome/unique you are. 
Every time you think these sorts of thoughts, you're taking away from how great you could be. I'm not saying you ought to go round professing how awesome you are (coz no-one likes that person...), just that you're hinging your own happiness on the approval of others, which is defs not the way it should be. 

It's a vicious cycle...the more you do it, the more insecure you feel :(

On another currently loving aztec prints after a friend showed me the uber cool aztec leggings she bought. I got some aztec patterned shorts that I've been wearing to death since I bought them and am now keen as to rock more aztec prints...

Me likey.

Just for kicks

Today was great. 11am start and only an hour of uni until I could return home. Though I still have loads of uni work to do whilst at home, it's still better than actually being at uni. Yay that the All Black's won again last night too, though if they were to lose to any team I'd rather it be to Argentina (got a bit of a soft spot for the pumas). The Argys put up a great fight though, and were humble in defeat (part of the reason why I like 'em). They are going to be a force to be reckoned with (excuse the cliche) when they join the four nations next year and start playing against the best teams on a yearly basis. But Yay for the ABs :) And Yay for Mills getting his 100th cap. Shame they didn't play his speech though.

Anyho.....for today's Much Love Monday I'm sharing some shoes that are TDF (to die for). I think that if I'm ever rich, I'm gonna be a shoe lady. One of those ones that has an entire wall in her walk in wardrobe just for shoes. haha. Nah probs not, but one can dream. Here are some that I heart:

black, fashion, heels, high heels, shoes
CL Check open-toed high heels
cl black shoes
The cool thing is that the last three pairs are from Wild Pair so are actually affordable!! Check out one of my favourite blogs, Here Comes the Sun to see how Amanda wears the bright orange pair just above! 
These shoes would all make my feet ache though, I'm pretty sure! But still, I love!!

Banks and boys

Since we have officially found a flat and told our current flatties that we're moving, my two future flatties and I went on a bank mission today. It actually was quite a mish, involving three different banks, a looong convo with a financial advisor who was the mirror image of Edna from The Incredibles and walking down the street with a huge wad of cash. When we were setting up our flat account, the intricate details of which completely went over my head, I was sorta looking through a student package thingy they have and asked about it. So tomorrow I have another meeting with Edna (her name is actually Marion haha) and apparently she's gonna hook me up with some sorta deal..! Choice! tehe.
Other than that brief hiatus, the rest of the day has been spent working on my final assignment (due tomorrow eek!). Buuuuuuuut, when I was net browsing (always manage to find time for this!) I found some cool pics of boys with craazy cool style so that is what I'm sharing today.

Though it sounds incredibly materialistic and superficial, I like boys who have cool style. It's one of the things that makes me look twice...! Lol.

Pullover, Vintage Vest, Skinnies, Shoes, Bag, Double Cross Ring
Urban Outfitters Joy Division Shirt, H&M Denim Shirt, Obey Jeans, Bed | Stu Cosburn Mocha Oxfords
Vintage Sunglasses, Topman T Shirt

ahhh yess :) xx

Wish list

Busy busy day today. Applied for a flat this morning, fingers crossed we get it! Went and visited two others but I'm afraid I have my heart set on the one we applied for. I'm gonna be super disappointed if we don't get it. Went out for coffee, did some uni work and hit the gym in the arvo then going to a friend's for a movie tonight which should be good!
I have recently felt the urge to go clothes shopping, but I shall do my best to not succumb to this material desire! Need to save up for the up-front payments for the new flat. Didn't realize it was so expensive. Grr, I hate money. But I'm going to share my current clothing wishlist anyway, so I can look and dream...........

Navy Blazer

Combat Boot - Black
Military boots (cept I want ones that are more vintage looking - help?)

Cute dress :)

Looovely lace dress

Trinity Elastic Cuff Pant - Light Chambray
Pants that aren't jeans

Cropped jersey

Cute blouse

Bowler hat

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh if only....but a girl can dream right?!
