1/3 March! Sydney is getting cooler and gloomy looking, which brings the unwelcome flu and cold season. I think I had my dose just two days ago and passed it onto E. He now is sniffling his way through the day, he and I are both drinking manuka and honey tea. But I do love the colder season, cause it means I can pile up clothing and be snuggly comfortable at work. That’s if they don’t put the heater on. You know what anime I am obsessed about, even if the story line is somewhat predictable, is Seven Deadly Sins. Which you now can watch on Netflix.

3/3 I got my printer/scanner up and running yay! I know I can definitely print from work, but that means I can only print when I’m at work. It just feels great my own room is coming together, still under construction, but its becoming an ideal place for study. E’s room came together great, there’s a few things I’d like to add but I think I should be focusing on my own room for now. I removed some old wall hangings and thinking of adding two white shelves. I’d like to paint the walls white, but that’s a large task. Maybe after my contract ends or after the semester is over.

4/3 100% getting hooked to the anime that Netflix holds. Almost done with Seven Deadly Sins and now starting B: The Beginning. Netflix is seriously stepping up its anime collection! I find it hard sometime to find online streaming sites for anime, without any ads popping up and unnecessary membership sign-ups.

Been deleting my photos on Instagram, I do not know if there’s this option to delete it all at once, but i’ve been doing it one by one. Argh. I feel like it would be a good idea to refresh my page.

Celebrated my V’s birthday as well as her partner’s, and it was good fun just chilling out  and enjoying Sydney’s night skyline. Oh, did I mention I finally put makeup on and I forgot how long it takes! Don’t get me started on the heels business. We went up to Sky Terrace and the cocktails were bomb, I highly recommend the watermelon margarita.

You see that last picture up there? Yes, it was a current of people after watching the fireworks at Milson’s Point.

These past few days, I have been receiving emails to do book reviews. Thank you for stopping by and I cannot wait to get back into it! I just do not know where you are all coming from?!

We had visited Treetops Adventure Park, finally! I had skipped out on the red course, boy was the first two courses challenging. Don’t get me wrong though, it sure was heaps of fun. I am planning to visit their branch up at Central Coast, to do their roller coaster sometime.

By the time you read this, I would have been all set and packed and headed towards my mate V’s place. Then I will be off!

 Let’s take a few steps back, and refresh what I have done since my last post. Well, I got to see Fantastic Beasts and though there was mixed opinion about it, I truly enjoyed it. Many fans of the Harry Potter series, obviously expected the movie to be the same… no. Yes, it is the same world but it is a whole new story line! So different characters, dynamics, emotions and perspectives. You should not be narrow with your expectations.

Received my online orders, like a day after, which was preety awesome! Thank gwad for express. Just need to get my hiking gear.

I got my hands on those cute rabbit keychains, I keep spotting them on luxe bags and kept me wondering, where? I stumbled upon Mooii and discovered them! There is a wide selection of colours, and was so tempted to grab the dark purple. I settled on the black. Fluffy as hell and it costed $45.99!

Yes, 1 more week of work and I am off! I even got my eyelashes glammed up at Lady Lash, my ultimate favourite to get extensions done. It is a bit on the pricier side, but it is well worth because of the beautiful quality.

Not well close to my packing done, but it will get there. Bought a few summer dresses and at least 3 swim wears! Tried to delve more into Australian brands, you know supporting local brands! For example, Beginning Boutique, Auguste, The Iconic, TJ Swim, Rachel Disalvo, etc. Cannot wait for the packages to come in, and I really love how there is an After Pay option. Which allows you to pay in 4 instalments for an item online.

Ended up visiting quickly the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, and viewing the interesting pieces by Louise Hearman and by young local artists. Louise’s artworks were amazing, it was odd at first but I could not stop staring.

I missed out on seeing the super-moon tonight, because of the cloudy forecast. It has cleared a little, but looking at the other countries of the photos shot, it looked extraordinary.

It is quite amazing, how people age… most I find, have not aged mentally. Selfish and inconsiderate about others, is a common trait amongst individuals.

Abe Books

Recently I do not just purchase any books from a shelf, unless I am overly eager to purchase a new read. Otherwise, I wait patiently, endlessly scrolling and search for first editions. Not only will it have a monetary value which may increase after a few years, but there is something special about keeping a first publication. Bonus if it is signed by the author too!

I stumbled upon Abe Books whilst searching for new reads. The great thing about this site is the endless amount of books they have. From everyday sales, classics, signed books, new publications, text books, used books and first editions. Navigation is simple, quite like strolling into a library. I failed to mention, you can easily sell your books here as well!

You can jump on this site, by clicking here or the little white box at the bottom of my blog.

Runner Bag

IMG_2687Rains Australia $149.99 || The Iconic

Since using this for almost 2 – 3 months now, over-packing it with textbooks, jumpers and food, it hasn’t failed me yet. It’s an amazing, compact and durable back-pack, which I find is compatible with my business and casual wears. The timeless black, is not a sheer but a matte finish. It wasn’t as clean-looking as it was at the start, because of my carelessness of placing food/cleaning products in close-by.

Please excuse, the lack of lighting. If you want a better picture of the bag, please click the links above!

There’s so many buckles, making it certain that your items won’t fall out and absolutely tug-free. Spacious, with two sections inside. There’s side compartments and water-proof zippers. There are other amazing bag designs, but I chose this because of its wide, stable straps, that will be beneficial for my shoulders and back. Combining the sporty and practical design into this product, you’ll love it as much as I do.
