I've seen these candle popping up left, right and center recently so when I saw one the other day I just had to buy it! I picked up the "fig, cassis and mandarin" scent, which smells divine due to the strange flavour combination. It is a very refreshing scent to have as the crisp mandarin notes blend well with the fig. If you happen to see this or any of the palm beach collection candles make sure you buy one or alternatively you can check out their website to purchase. Let me tell you now, I will definitely be repurchasing one of these candles!

After seeing these cute tank tops popping up everywhere I decided that I had to get my hands on one, so last week I finally decided which design I wanted and purchased my first Language of Flowers top. I went for the "forget me not" which features pale blue flowers wrapped around a skull on the white tank (it also comes on a grey tank). When it arrived I was delighted to find that attached to the swing tag was a packet of forget me not seeds that I can plant in my garden to match the top, and a sweet note from the designers Alexandra and Stephanie. You can find these tops online at http://www.ilovelof.com

After finally finishing school I have reached a point where decisions need to be made about what happens next! Now the summer months are jam packed with exciting adventures around the world, however after September I have nothing on the agenda. I have decided to treat the next few months as a time to provide myself with opportunities, the first of these will be my trips to Greece, Italy France and most importantly America! Whilst in America I have stumbled upon an internship opportunity at the Fashion Institute Gallery in Dallas, I am looking forward to this and pray that it turns out to be as great as I expect. Once returning to London I hope to possibly do an art or fashion short course and see as much of the London art scene as possible.
When February finally rolls around and I make my way back to Australia I will hopefully be starting university, I say hopefully because I am stuck at a cross road at the moment and finding the idea of university and choosing courses in a different country quite daunting. It's safe to say that the next year of my life will provide me with many opportunities and changes that I wish to take on with everything I have to make the most of what is thrown my way. Although at the moment I am unsure on a few things, I know for sure that I will enjoy and appreciate this time. It's safe to say that I'll miss alot of things about a school life, however I am excited for what lies ahead.

Recently I've reached the highest level of procrastination possible, as a result I've completely perfected my bedroom and left it absolutely spotless and organise so decided now is the perfect time to show it off! Here are a few images of the room, hope you enjoy a look into the place where much of my time is spent. *Note this post is picture heavy*
|The desk.. Although not alot of work actually happens here!|
|Flowers are a must when adding life and colour to a room.|
|The makeup collection (which may continue into the draws below).|
|Half of the magazine collection with my favourite vase and frame.|
|This sign and trunk are my ultimate keepsakes.|
|THE BED! Way to much of my time is spent here..|
|This pinboard holds a lot of memories.|
|A floor to ceiling window provides a vast amount of light, its perfect in the summer months.|

Last night I prepared a bowl of Bircher muesli to consume over the weekend. I got this recipe from a YouTube channel called "Bondi Harvest" and was amazed at how simple and quick it was to make! The addition of chai tea is optional but it definitely adds flavour to the muesli. When I ate it for breakfast this morning I added some chopped fruit and fresh orange juice for the ultimate healthy experience.. If you love Bircher Muesli or just want to try something new for breakfast then definitely try out this recipe (I've added a link to the video recipe below).
