An Assortment From Melbourne


Winter Break

DSC_0005 I've had a really nice winter break, but I'm ready to get back into the swing of things again. This semester I'll be studying two French units- one grammar unit and the other a French literature unit, plus Politics of the USA and Communication and Mass Media units. I have pretty leather moleskin notebooks and plenty of reading to get started on! I've done some cool things these holidays such as check out the Picasso and Warhol exhibition at the WA Art Gallery, spent a day browsing around the streets of Freo and South Fremantle, several visits to the Swan Valley chocolate factory, amongst other cool holiday type adventures. Just finished watching Game of Thrones- amazing. Also finished the entire season 1 of Girls in a day- amazing aswell. HBO is really on the money recently.

Other than that, I've shopped quite a bit in the holiday sales picking up this lace skater dress (above) from ASOS and this floral blue dress from Billie & Rose.

Tea and Stuff

These snaps were from a while back when it was warm and sunny, now I'm snuggling in three jumpers, warm tea and a blanket. I'm craving summer again, sigh.

In other news, I just came home from seeing Take This Waltz with Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen. Whilst being aesthetically pleasing, the plotline was shotty and none of the characters desirable. I really wanted to love Michelle Williams, but I couldn't. She seemed like a selfish twat who needed a slap in the face, and as much as they tried to make Seth Rogen's character the bad guy I still sympathised immensely with him. All in all though, wouldn't have paid the $15 or so to watch it. Their house though, seemed so cosy and loving. I really want my house to look like that when I grow up.

Listening to Youth Lagoon. So much bliss.
