Somebody That I Used to Know

Hello my ham sandwiches,

Do you like me greeting you that way? Get used to it. All the cool kids are saying it. So, basically, just me.

Just felt like sharing this song with you. It's called "Somebody that I Used to Know" by Gotye and featuring Kimbra. He's an Australian artist so that automatically gives him bonus points from me :) This song is absolutely AMAZING and if you haven't heard it, you need to listen to it NOW. The lyrics are incredible, so true and honest. I have listened to this song at least 60 times over the last 3 days; I'm not even joking. I can relate to it so well- it describes perfectly a sort-of relationship I had with this guy. I'm not going into details but it's really special to me for personal reasons and never have I connected with a song this much.
So, check it out. It's taking Australia by storm! All of my friends are loving it- even the ones that don't listen to my kind of music so obviously it's good :) :)

The link to the music video (which also happens to be amazing) is here!

Another outfit post

I find the only way to spice up my boring and mundane uni life is to dress to impress, every time I go. As I always say, "When you look good, you feel good, and when you feel good, good things happen!"

So my outfit for uni the other day...


Jacket: Chicabooti
Singlet: I cannot remember for the life of me... got it ages ago
Scarf: Cotton On
Tights: Big W
Shorts: Temt
Earrings: Sportsgirl
Cross ring: Sportsgirl
Green ring: Equip

I'm loving these tights- they were from Big W for about $10; such a bargain!!! Althought I've worn them twice and they're already starting to ladder, which is pretty disappointing...

Sorry about the crappy photos I've been posting. The background is dull, the angles are dull... I don't have my own photographer so I get to use the lovely self-timer button on my camera, and set it up on my kitchen counter (the only place where you can get my whole body in the shot)... I think I'm gonna try and find someone to take my photos for me haha :)

Now I'm off to clean the house... what an eventful life I lead!

Have a good day and stay smiling :)

I got pictures on my mind

These are just some random pictures from my photo collection. Ones that inspire me, and ones that I just think are really cool :)

And check out my Americana nails!! They're far from perfect, but it was my first try doing any sort of nail art and I'm pretty happy with them. I'm obsessed with this trend at the moment; I hope it lasts! :)

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, uni started back up again last week and then I got terribly sick with a bad cold so haven't really had anything interesting to talk about!
Thought I'd just update you with what I'm wearing today! Nothing special, just had uni, but pretty much everything I'm wearing is new and I really wanted to wear it out! Probably wasn't the best choice of attire for the weather today (torrential downpours!!!) but meh, I was determined.
This outfit is I think quite bohemian which is not normally my style, but hey, it's good to change things up, right?
Oh, and it was comfyyyyyyyy :)

Hope you all have an excellent day and don't get soaked like I did this morning!!
