It's Been A While - Happy New Year

Hi Everyone,

I know it's been so very long since I've written a post and blogged but I've just been so busy and honestly it's seemed like this chore that has been hanging over my head for a while that I've just wanted to avoid. I don't really want to write a post if I'm not honestly feeling up to it because I want to give my best to this blog.

Anyway, I've had a pretty eventful new year, I hope you have too! I've started some new projects that are underway and I'm back at school again working hard.

So the main thing I've been doing recently apart from school work is painting and below you'll find a couple of photos of a painting that I worked on over the new year break.
Anyway that's all from me for now but I'll be back soon xx

DesignZ - Fashion Show 2013

DesignZ is a Fashion Show that showcase students designs and outfits from Kristin School and I was lucky enough this year to be one of the student producers. It was such an amazing event and project to work on, the designers themselves were incredible and the stuff they made was so breathtaking. It was a fantastic night and if you're in Auckland around the middle of next year make sure you keep your eyes out for this event because it's not one to miss!

Spring Walks

Been Away For A While

So here's a quick photo diary of my past weeks...
 I started getting in the habit of drinking lots of water, keeping healthy!
I laughed a lot to keep my spirits up. 
 Let's Go Let's Go To Repco!
 I passed all of my exams!
 I went out for dinner 
 I went to a play and dressed up as a "nerd" - not without reason
I went to the movies

In all seriousness, these past few months have been so hectic, I helped produce a fashion show, which I'll post about soon, I had exams, I've had a few personal fall downs and some difficult weeks and it's all been so full on. I'm just so happy that there's now a two week break for me to catch up on some sleep, go for some walks, press flowers, read, draw and blog! So hopefully you'll be hearing a lot more from me over the next week or two xx

Life's Contradictions

All these sayings and quotes relating to life are so contradictory. We're told that we shouldn't waste our time doing things we don't want to because, life is too short. But at the same time, you need to learn to do things you don't enjoy because not everything in life is going to be enjoyable. Both quotes are incredibly true but very contradictory, and you'll find this is a reoccurring theme throughout life.
So what does life want? Everything, and nothing. It's a confusion. Life wants us to enjoy it, to fill it with what makes us happy, but at the same time it wants us to learn that that can't happen all the time. I suppose what it's really telling us is that we can't always get what we want, but it wants us to try to anyway.

Artsy Update

It's been an insanely busy time for me recently but things are finally happening and it's all very exciting - it also means that I will have a lot more content to blog about... Anyway, you'll be hearing from me soon hopefully
