Baby photos.

I am le sick! It's no good! The weather has been glorious the past few days. A week of sunny, cloudless days and warm temperatures makes a happy elf. I swear I am solar powered- I get so much done when it's sunnier! It's been perfect maxi dress weather.

I cleaned up my room and have been decorating with scented candles and broken lamps I found on the street, it's been amazing having such a sweet smelling, tranquil place to be.
I went through my entire wardrobe and was brutally honest with mysElf. The result? Two giant garbage bags of clothes I need to get rid of. I'll be putting some items up for sale, so stay tuned :)

Despite feeling lousy, the weather was so nice today, it would be such a shame if I just spent all of the day inside. So, I ventured out with Alex, to find more tea and found a cute cropped top with a pony on it instead :D

I hate decisions, I really do.
Facing the utter dilemma of which is of a higher priority: Paying $190 to go to the Australian Contortion Festival + it's workshops in Melbourne for training sessions, or buying the $300 Nikon I need to get my project really on the roll.
I would just borrow a camera, but I want to use the same camera so the images are of the same quality, every time from the word go. The camera also needs to be a little more impressive than a regular point and shoot, but not as big and heavy as a DSLR. Bah! Unless I can magic $200, I'm going to have to have a big ol' think.

I'm sure some of you have had the 'embarrassing photos on your birthday' thing happen to you. My mum never got the chance to embarrass me at my birthday parties, and I think she kind of really wanted to show my friends how much of a dork I was as a kid.
I thought I was safe, but she went on a bit of a spree uploading and tagging me in a bunch of old family photos on Facebook. 90s haircuts and goofy teeth upped the cringe factor, but I just can't help but be weirded out how that tiny baby was even me!
