What, don't you guys climb on furniture and snap headless photos when you have friends over?
Schools back tomorrow after 2 months of British TV, the tennis, sleeping in, parties, reading, shopping ETC ETC ETC Surprisingly I'm quite excited, after all the faster this year starts the faster it ends, and then I will be done with classrooms forever!

I just got back from a week long holiday in melbourne with a few friends. I went to the Big Day Out on tuesday (lily allen and girl talk were amazing) and unfortunately my camera got trampled and crushed to death in the mosh pit at Muse (but I did get to crowd surf out). Hopefully I'll be able to buy a new one in the next week or so, but school goes back on tuesday so I may not have time. Luckily I was able to salvage the memory card so I can upload the photos when I get around to borrowing my mum's camera.
I did heeeeeeeeeeaps of shopping in melbourne (I've finally discovered where the good charity stores are!). It was interesting to learn what I buy based on the weather- melbourne is notorious for it's four-season-in-a-day, and when it was overcast and chilly I bought cardigans and velvet, but when it was hot and sticky I was back to floaty patterned dresses. I can't wait for summer to end, I miss layering and I managed to get second degree sunburns on my back. I swear the sun hates me!
Here's a photo one of my friends snapped of me:
(yeah about the face.....I have no idea)
Oh and I almost forgot, I got my nose pierced! Stupidly I went to a less than reputable place, but it only cost $18, it seems to be healing fine and I absolutely LOVE it!

^Extremely happy the Australian Open has started for another year.
Look!!! Shoes!!! AND a bag!!! I think I'm getting the hang of deciding on these two items with more than 5 seconds to go before I have to walk out the door.
I've been a fan of glomesh for a couple of years now, so I had to snap this bag up as soon as I saw it at an op shop for 2 bucks, even though it has a bit of obvious wear and tear. I just love the snake-skin sensation when I run my hand over it, not to mention the old-hollywood glamour.... Except I didn't think that leather boots were entirely practical for 30+ degree C weather..... So I swapped for my favourite flowery granny shoes. (And yes I like to sniff feathers- what of it?)
I got these for $3 from a charity store close to my home. They have everything you could possibly want in an "ugly" shoe- 1cm thick foam sole, curtain-y floral fabric and a fake leather sling-back. Oh and a rope tie. Amazing. Although I don't think all my friends agree...
On the bus to town today:
On the bus to town today:
Little kid with rat tail- *looks at me* "whisper, whisper, whisper (to mum)" *looks at me with disdainful expression*
Little kid with rat tail's mother- YA CAN'T NOT LIKE SOMEONE COS OF THEIR CLOTHES!
Me- *Death stare the little kid with rat tail*
At this point I wish I'd started mumbling incoherently to myself while slowly rocking back and forward, just to appear even more inviting to this young child.
Oh well he was wearing a 50 cent cap. It's to be expected.
A very saintly Liam Gallager in the background. Oasis may have disbanded, but to me they will always be number one.
