Twenty First Gifts

DSC_0435DSC_0438DSC_0440DSC_0441DSC_0442DSC_0445DSC_0446DSC_0448 I received the loveliest of gifts for my twenty first. My best friend Ella gave me three beautiful pearls that her mother is going to set in gold for me. My boyfriends family gave me lovely earings and a guest book in where everyone wrote lovely messages from the evening. His little sister gave me a super cool teacup. I also received some candles, nail polish, jewelry, a bottle of Dom Perignon (which will be saved for a very special occasion), some cool books which will be well read and heaps of other gifts (there seriously are too many to mention)! I feel so blessed to have such lovely people in my life that I hope I will stay good friends with in many years to come.

The best present yet was the Polaroid camera! I have wanted one for a very long time, but could never justify buying another camera, but alas it really is the coolest thing ever and I have been using it nonstop since last week! I can't wait to take my new baby to the big apple and snap away! Also, the film that I put into it seems to have this super cool border. If any of you guys who bought this are reading, you guys are seriously awesome.

New Years 2013

For New Years my boyfriend and I drove up spontaneously to Toodyay (about an hour out of Perth) to celebrate at a friends farm. Good times were enjoyed by all, and the night became very nostalgic when we all shared lovely stories of our friendships. On the down side, the night was ridiculously and unbearably hot and was littered with mosquitos, luckily those are the things that are never remembered. The drive home at 5am the next morning was one of the loveliest memories I have, despite the hungover head and extreme tiredness. There was something very serene about the Australian countryside at the crack of dawn in a New Year, I wish I took some photographs... but alas.

I am busy preparing for my trip to America and not busy at all studying for my exams. I also had my twenty-first birthday on the weekend, it was pretty swell and Quentin Tarantino themed. Here's the polaroids...its hard to tell from these snaps but I was Shoshanna from Inglorious Basterds!
