80s Earrings

I've recently become very obsessed with wearing massive 80s earrings that I've been collecting from op shops. Last night I went to a 70s/80s themed rollerblading disco night and got an excuse to wear those massive round gold ones (which are about 5cm in diameter!).

I am renown for my lack of coordination and I think attempting to rollerblade (something I haven't done since I was about 6) was too high a goal because within the first 5 minutes I fell on my ass and now have a bruised tailbone :-( But on the bright side at least it's an excuse to lie in bed all day and read and watch movies :-)

Incoming Parcel

I bought a tote bag from misako mimoko and it came in just the sweetest parcel! I love the metallic blue tape! 

I can't wait to stitch on the eyes and nose and start using it!

I have been wanting some rife paper co. cards for yonks but they are way too expensive to get posted to Australia. But I found these rifle paper co. postcards on sale in a cute shop and also some pretty coloured tape for my dymo labeller :-D

I also found this adorable case for storing vinyls in for 50c! I have never seen one before and I think the pattern is just the sweetest thing ever!

 I love the skier who can't get his jumper off :-P

1 year

Happy 2014 everyone!
I started this blog a year ago today and have had so much fun sharing my op shopping and crafting exploits throughout the past year.  I have 'met' some amazing people through blogging and it is so great to find people with similar tastes who appreciate the same things, so thank you to everyone who comments or just pops in occasionally, I really appreciate it. 

I tend to keep my personal and blogging life very separate. Most of my friends don't even know I have a blog and only my boyfriend and my sister have actually seen it. This year I am going to try and show a bit more of myself and my life on this blog. 

Me with my cat Zinky. I feel like the bushes behind me make me look like a crazy cat lady or a witch. (not that I have any objection with being a crazy cat lady :-P)

So here goes; I am 19 and study human geography at the University of Wollongong. I have 2 older sisters and an older brother but I am the only one still at home (I'm too broke to move out). I have been with my boyfriend, Alistair, for almost 2 years now and completely love him. On saturdays I work with children with autism and I absolutely love it because I get to be a massive kid again. As you already know if you read this blog in my spare (or not so spare) time I am an obsessive op-shopper and I also love crafting and sending mail.

Sorry if this post is a tad ranty and boring but I will back to normal posts after this.
