Last week was my Mum's birthday and since everybody else was at work we went out for the day. We stopped into Farmers, as you do, and stumbled upon an amazing thing. It was what could only be described as a double sale (I can't think of any other way to put it).

Farmers Double Sale

While the title says Feb/March Reads I read the majority of the books in February and spilled a little into March according to Goodreads. I love Goodreads so much. I can keep account of all the books I've read as well as the dates I started and finished them. Anyway I realised it's been a over a month since I've done a book post, I need to start reading faster, so I'm doing another double up.

In order to curb my spending I try to avoid all the emails coming in showing me all the stuff I would love to have. When I saw 1-Day having a beauty sale I thought there wasn't any harm just having a look, until I saw Essie.

It's been a long while since I've done a NOTD post. These nails managed to last the entire week without much chipping which I was stoked about.

It was my birthday not that long ago so I thought I would share what I got. Posts like these are cool to look back on, especially since my memory is horrible.

I started this 'Wanderlust Dreams' series thing last year in which I share all the cool travel things I would love to do, sort of like a bucket list. Since not having any assignments and being unemployed I have a lot of time on my hands to dream about being somewhere else. I'm a bit of a Disney fan and as such have been dreaming of a Disney getaway.

Hello hello. For many people last week was the start of the semester. Whether this is your first year or last year good luck! I decided to take a break this year, a decision I sometimes question when I'm failing at finding a job which somewhat relates to the two degrees I have which took four years. That aside I thought I might impart some wisdom from my four years some of which might or might not be helpful, do with it as you wish.

I made another vlog! This is just a short one of when I ventured into Auckland one morning. I'm finding these fun to make so I need to start doing interesting things and remembering to take the camera. Enjoy!

While February was a day longer this year it still flew by and once again I feel I've achieved nothing. I've pretty much followed my usual pattern, do nothing during January and February and then head back to uni. Only this time I have no uni to go back to, I'm always looking out for opportunities but nothing has happened so far. In the meantime this blog has become my full time job, kind of.
