things of the month

Just a few things that I picked up in November recently! Honestly, it seems crazy that a month hasn’t passed since I was sitting my last exam. In fact, it feels like so long ago that I can’t even recall half the things I did in that time… but then again, I guess this always happens as holidays become one big blur in my head and I begin to lose track of what day it is. Anyway, moving on to the interesting stuff:

1/ Sportsgirl nail polish and stud earrings. These were discounted twice so naturally I couldn’t say no… and before, I was seriously lacking in the glitter polish department (but not anymore)! I have to say, the glitter in these polishes is quite sparse but I guess you get what you pay for.

2/ Moleskine Le Petit Prince 2013 diary, The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien, and The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Since post-HSC started, at the top of my to do list was to get back into reading. I’m pretty sure I stopped in year seven because the idea of prescribed novels sucked away the fun in reading books for me… that, and I was busy with school. So while I have all the time in the world, I decided it was the perfect opportunity to tackle another reading list! It’s quite sad, but I’ve never read The Hobbit… I’m pretty sure it’s one of those classics that everyone has read, but now I’m really determined to finish it before I see the movie. Along with my books I also ordered a Moleskine diary, my first one. I’ve had two Frankie diaries and while they’re great, I thought it was time for something new. I really loved Le Petit Prince, so I can’t wait to use this next year!

3,4/ Porcelain dishes and satchel from Fun Fair. It’s really surprising how much good stuff is donated to things like school fairs and white elephant stalls! And more often than not, the prices are way better than normal charity shops, which I find are gradually getting more expensive. I think I’m becoming somewhat of a hoarder when it comes to dishes like these ones, what with them slowly taking over my shelf space…
This Saturday I’m leaving on a short trip to Hong Kong and Singapore, so I guess this is goodbye for a little while. As it happens, I don’t get to go overseas very often… in fact, this will only be my third time, so naturally I’m pumped for it! If only that excitement would carry over into actions, because I’m still yet to pack my suitcase. Anyway, hope you’re having a good week and bye until then!
