snoopy's christmas

Christmas was nice this year, very laid back, just stayed at home and had a big Christmas lunch with Mum, siblings, Aunty & Uncle, little cousins, Grandma & Grandad. Main presents that I received were a pink hairdryer ^^, manicure set, a magenta "snoopy" t-shirt, grey & salmon-coloured print singlet, and some money. There were other little things too. I sold my old phone and put the money from that together with the money I got for christmas and got a phone off trademe.co.nz. Motorola V3X in Hot Pink. It's v. v. sexy ^^

Haha sorry for crappy webcam pics, camera is battery-less & I can't really take a pic of me & the phone while using the phones camera. Wouldn't really work...
Anyway, the phone has 2 cameras, one outside and one inside, so I can take pics of myself and see what it looks like before i take it =]

tomato art?

While preparing some Tomato Salsa to eat with Corn Chips for my Christmas sleepover, I dropped the (plastic) bowl of salsa on the ground, it landed on its base (thank God) but little chunks of tomato and onion flew EVERYWHERE. There were splatters on the roof, on almost every cupboard door in the kitchen, all up the pantry door...
Thankfully, none landed on me. I think this party is cursed. I made a Polyvore set in honour of this catastrophic event to calm my nerves.

Oh, my. How stressful is this. Anyway, I better go buy some liquid sugar for the party to keep us awake! (Soft drink.) We're watching various movies including Mamma Mia. Can't wait!

opposite seasons

I was browsing through the Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear collections on Style.com when I came across Alexander Wang's collection. It was love at first sight. From the pale denim to the simple shapes and folds, I love everything about it. See what you think:

It's a pity that Spring has just finished for us here. Why do our seasons have to be opposite to the Northern Hemisphere's? =[
I am having five, maybe six friends over tonight for a Christmas sleepover that I am hosting. I still have to get the food and beds sorted, so I'm stressing out about it. I'll tell you how it goes tomorrow.



I want everything in this post.
*polywhore lust*


get yer craft on

School has finished (on Tuesday) and I've been sitting at home, on the computer, being lazy, etc. etc. But... yesterday I was browsing through Craftster.org and I found some really awesome high waisted skirts/pinafores. So I decided to make a pinafore (looks like a high waisted skirt with straps). I found a tutorial and began sewing. It is the first article of clothing I have ever sewed in my entire life... so I'm quite pleased with it. Even though I almost tore it into zillions of pieces after having to move the zip about 9,067,895 times. Unpick, pin, sew, unpick, pin, sew...
Here it is:
Tell me whatcha think =]

(Skirt; homemade, $0. Singlet; Supre, $13. Tights; Farmers, $8. Cardi; Valleygirl, $20.)

*EDIT* I forgot to say that I didn't end up making the pinafore with straps, I just left it as a skirt as the straps were fiddly to sew and I was satisfied with it as a skirt.



harajuku girl (finally)

I finally went and charged the camera batteries so I could upload these pics for you guys! (I found them fully charged in the battery charger... so what if I'm lazy...) For those of you who don't know, these are pictures of my costume for a Harajuku-themed birthday party that I attended about a week ago.

The second picture is of me and three of my friends at the party. (A, Me, S, TJ.)

I am wearing loads of clips, a white headband, ribbons in my hair, pink sequin earrings, eight assorted necklaces, about 27 assorted bracelets, a white blouse, a pink silk nightdress with lace, a petticoat, two skirts, mid-calf length white socks and black ballet flats. I was going to wear false eyelashes but they didn't look right so I took them off.

And here is a pic of an outfit I wore a couple of days ago that I promised to post with the Harajuku pics.


polyvore madness

Seeing as I still haven't gotten around to charging the batteries for my camera, I decided to make some Polyvore sets to keep you company. They aren't anything overly special, just quick ones. The first one is dedicated to my good friend Dee from Viva La Juicy (to Dee: it features a Juicy Couture dress, watch & bag!), and the second one is just a group of tee's that I found cool. The rest are "celebrity style" ones.
The one that has a bike & "save the whales" on it took me about 30 seconds to get. Do you get it?
I laughed for about 30 minutes following my discovery. I want it!
Here you go;



harajuku girl

I have been invited to attend my friend Susie's Harajuku-themed birthday party tomorrow, and I have been fretting over what to wear for the past week. Today I threw some things together and they looked surprisingly good, I intend to post some pictures when I can be bothered charging the batteries in my camera. It decided to turn off just after I had taken some. I've also got some pictures of what I wore today, which includes my fire-engine red Lee skinny jeans - which I salvaged from Recycle Boutique on Queen Street in Auckland City for about $21 (NZD).
Anyway, here are some pictures of where I got my inspiration for this Harajuku-madness.
It's not usually my thing, but here goes!

To sum it all up; layers of skirts cause I don't own a full petticoat, socks, loads of bracelets + necklaces, clips galore, hair in two pony tails on the sides, full-on blusher, headbands, socks, uncomfortable too-small but amazingly cute jelly shoes I bought for $1 from a sales bin in JayJay's, a white blouse + an old lacy nightdress. Yep. Doesn't that sound lovely. It's extremely hot wearing all that stuff, but looks gorge.

Night all!


back already...

Okay, so that was most likely the shortest hiatus ever.
I've been looking at the Ancient Egyptian-themed runway images that have recently been posted on Style.com and love them. Ever since I was a little doe-eyed, freckled, giggly child, I've been interested in Ancient Egypt. Especially the mythology and fashion aspects of it. Coming across these pictures is most likely the reason why my hiatus didn't last very long, I felt a need to share them with you all.

I. Love. It.
I must purchase some metallic-gold gladiator sandals for summer. They surely are Egyptian-inspired, plus they conform to the latest gladiator craze that has hit the shores of New Zealand.
Will post more soon,
Au revoir!
