Superheroes unite.

Yesterday was Jade's birthday!  So to celebrate everybody dressed up as superheroes and danced around and played the chocolate game.  It was pretty darn fun.  Hope you enjoyed every minute of your day Jadey!
The birthday girl:D

Powerpuff girls.



Ah I can't stop listening this song...

Birthday time.

Yaaaaay I'm finally 16! So anyway, yesterday was my birthday which I was pretty excited about.  The family went to the Oyster Box for breakfast, which was pretty darn good,  and I pretty much spent a lot of the rest of the day using my present...

I'm really happy with it and spent the afternoon taking pictures absolutely everything.  Among other things my sister gave me box with 16 things that I already own.  Which explained where my pajamas and tweezers had disappeared to.  All in all it was a lovely birthday!


A whole lot of wonderful smelling stuff.

And some jewelry.

This is basically a jersey appreciation post.  To put it simply, I'm obsessed with them and want to cry at the thought that in a month or two it will be way too hot to wear them.  Sniff.

Exploding Cakes.

For nearly four hours this afternoon, two friends and I have baked and iced this monster cake.  It's supposed to be a fun spin on the traditional paper macho model volcano but this was no easy Geography project.  Turns out it can be quite a mission to get a cake to stay upright but many, many skewers, some last minute cake surgery and a whole lot of icing later it's finished.  And we're utterly exhausted.
The front. (It's supposed to be showing what the inside looks like)

The back.

Some lava.

Sunday afternoons.

Last week Sunday the cameras and heels came out for a high tea to say farewell to the two Scottish exchange students that have been staying with our friends for the past couple of weeks.  It's been lovely getting to know them both and they will be missed.  It was a fun afternoon filled with delicious food, tea and laughs.  Being the genius that I am, I managed to leave my camera at home, so a big thanks to Cath for letting me use some of her pictures.

Hello long weekend.

Yay for the four day weekend.  It's so cold and so my bed and I have a date.

Today, while looking through a box of old toys for things for an art project I found these two.  I just couldn't bring myself to put them back in that dark, dusty box. So they've relocated to my desk.  Now all they need is names...

This may sound strange, but I really want a pair of socks.  I used to have socks like these when I was about five and haven't been able to find any yet.  And so the search continues...


15 days. And a dress.

Firstly, this is a dress I got at the last iheartmarket that I've been meaning to blog about for ages but procrastination etc.  Anyway, here it is.  I wasn't too sure about it at first because the style of the dress is quite old and it's pretty long so I think I'm going to take it up a bit.  It's different to any of my other dresses but I quite like it.
Also in case you had't noticed: it's August.  Basically the best month of the year.  When I first started typing this post I thought there were 16 more days until I turn 16, which would have been pretty cool but it turns out there are only 15 days.  To put it simply, I'm excited.  Which is weird, considering I don't usually get that worked up over birthdays etc.  Yay yay yay.
