The trees are in their Autumn beauty...

29 Oct 2013


Some Autumn nature snaps from out and about around my house <3


THE TREES are in their autumn beauty,  
The woodland paths are dry,  
Under the October twilight the water  
Mirrors a still sky;  
Upon the brimming water among the stones          
Are nine and fifty swans.
  
The nineteenth Autumn has come upon me  
Since I first made my count;  
I saw, before I had well finished,  
All suddenly mount   
And scatter wheeling in great broken rings  
Upon their clamorous wings.  
  
I have looked upon those brilliant creatures,  
And now my heart is sore.  
All’s changed since I, hearing at twilight,   
The first time on this shore,  
The bell-beat of their wings above my head,  
Trod with a lighter tread.  
  
Unwearied still, lover by lover,  
They paddle in the cold,   
Companionable streams or climb the air;  
Their hearts have not grown old;  
Passion or conquest, wander where they will,  
Attend upon them still.  
  
But now they drift on the still water   
Mysterious, beautiful;  
Among what rushes will they build,  
By what lake’s edge or pool  
Delight men’s eyes, when I awake some day  
To find they have flown away?

The 'L' Word

28 Oct 2013

Hmm....The L Word (Love for all you bimbos out there)

what does love really mean? And is it real or just a trick by nature to get us to reproduce. 

         Seriously...If you take a couple you knew, who are broken up now, and who were going out for ages, i'm sure you heard the girl gushing over excitedly about how exactly three months, one week, five days, twenty-two hours and eighteen minutes into the relationship he came out with "I love you", and the guy getting slagged cheerfully by his mates about being "whipped". Think of them holding hands, seeing every movie in the cinema twice because they go on dates so often, and her squeeling over the Birthday/Christmas gift that was bestowed upon her by her "One & Only".

          Well think of that, and look at them now? Are they still friends? If it's a fresh break up I doubt it, and if they slept with each other then they probably cant even glance at each other without turning an unpleasent shade of aubergine, and if there was cheating/scandle then i'm sure there's at least a 10 kilometre gap between them at all times. And all this from the two people who at one point was so sickeningly sweet you vomited candy canes after an hour in the same room with them. Am I making my point.? If love is the most powerful emotion, and love 'conquers all' then how can couples like them go from one extreme to the other after typically, one conversation. How do they forget so easily and move on so quickly.

 I am a strong believer that if you truly loved someone, part of you always will.

What do you think about 'love'?

Bedroom Inspiration

27 Oct 2013

Heyo!
I have always been really creative and have loved art but in the last few years I have found the sector of creativity I am really interested in. 
Deep down I am really an interior designer. It would be my dream job. I have spent hours creating and decorating rooms on mydeco.com and browsing ideas on sites like pinterest and weheartit. 
Honestly, looking at pretty decor and architecture pleases me more than anything else :P
 It is like creative porn to me haha. 
I hope I'm lucky enough to one day get a house of my own (hopefully with a husband!) and I'm rich enough to decorate every room to the my utmost taste hehe. 
I think decorating my own rooms would be the funnest thing ever and a way to let out so much creativity and ideas. I honestly look forward to decorating my house more than for example, planning my wedding. 
Right now, I don't have the time or money to do anything too nice with my room. But these pictures give a glimpse to the type of room I would LOVE. Bright, white, floral, colourful, and slightly vintage.
 What do you think? What would your dream room be?

Happy Friend-iversary

26 Oct 2013


Olivia, this is the first time I'm dedicating a whole blog post to one person so you better feel special :) 

In October 2009, I met this lovely girl Olivia from New Zealand. At the time, we were both 16 and in secondary school. I'm not going to go into the details of our friendship because I'm not writing this to tell you all about it, I am just writing this to thank her. 
We instantly hit it off, I don't ever remember us being awkward or holding back what we say to each other like people usually do when they meet first. 
From day one she has been there for me to talk to about absolutely anything. She has been there through all the ups and downs, we have watched each other finish school, move to university, go through boyfriends, and other friendships.Essentially we have watched each other grow up. 
Throughout these past four years there has been other people who I have felt just as close to as her, but they have all come and gone, she is the only friend who has been constant. She is the only friend I have now who I can look to ten years in the future and be certain that she will still be there, by my side no matter what. 
Thanks for being there for me these last few years, and I hope you feel like I was always there for you. Thanks to you, I always have someone to share every amazing moment with. And when I'm feeling sad or upset, because of you, I never ever feel alone.
