Less shopping and web-surfing, more saving and study


 "The day, water, sun, moon, night - I do not have to purchase these things with money."

 - Plautus 


Though there are many beautiful sights around my home country of New Zealand that are beautiful and free; for example, 
the amazing views of Mt Ruapehu around the Central Plateau our family was enjoying just over a week ago. However 
many things aren't free. Like my fashion addiction. Recently I have been loving the many Kenzo inspired tiger prints tops
 around, and I kept sending Ellen links. But last week she sent a glassons one that was on sale, I sensed a winner and 
the next day it appeared on my doorstep yay. Since then there have been some more cheeky glassons purchases by 
Ellen and I which should arrive soon #addicts

wet-look leggings, tiger top, studded bag - Glassons
hunger games parachute necklace - Amazon
beanie - my own pattern adapted from x
nail polish - Butter 'Tea with the Queen'
lipstick - Rimmel Kate Moss 107
lace-up boots - Andrea Biani
cardigan - Valley Girl
ring - Karen Walker
Lego watch - Asos

After having given my nails a little break over the holidays from polish (after the mission of getting off the liquid sand
 polish I had on), I decided to ease back into it with my neutral favourite from Butter: Tea with the Queen. I've been 
neglecting my Butters a bit lately since discovering the OPI liquid sands, but I think it's time to start cycling them again.

Since starting the new semester at uni, Ellen and I have found our schedules to be clashing to the extreme in terms 
of photo taking opportunities. We managed to snap these quickly one afternoon while doing errands, and are having 
to get much more organised with our time planning eek! 

It's also been a bit tough getting back into actual hard work after such a relaxed first semester this year. It was 
struggle to get back into the laboratory swing of things today after not doing one in so long. I couldn't even do 
basic math/chemistry/biology easily. But I really enjoyed the other lab on the differences between Agouti mice and 
wild type (amazing how much fat they can hold!!). Next up lab report writing, but creating a blog post was the
 writing of choice this evening since it is a lot more fun haha
