Red Lips Sink Ships

16 August 2014


Except they don't really. Last year I travelled to and from university on the ferry most of the time, and wore red lipstick a lot of the time, and I have no Titanic-like stories to tell! I started wearing red lipstick in early 2013. Prior to that, I liked the look of bright lipsticks on other people but was a bit shy about trying them myself.

By the way, I'm alive! I've felt a bit guilty about not posting for half a month as when I returned from a kind of hiatus thing in the mid-year university break I told myself I'd be both committed and consistent with this blog. <excuse> A few weeks ago I had a nasty flu type virus that had me in bed for a week, and since then I've had a shitload of uni work to catch up with. </excuse> If you're reading this, thanks for not giving up on me!

Mid Year Break

22 July 2014


I've just realised that I don't post to Instagram that often at all! These are the six images I've Instagrammed over my three week mid-year break. As of yesterday, I'm in my sixth and final semester of university and I graduate in December! Thinking about it is simultaneously exciting and daunting as there is so much work to do, but I can't wait until I finish my degree.

Mixtape #1

16 July 2014


The song that I've had on repeat for the past week is This Love (Will Be Your Downfall) by Ellie Goulding. I then chose four more songs that in my opinion had the same kind of 'vibe' and made this playlist for the first post in this new feature, Mixtape!
