And maybe today I'll jump that barbed wired fence and leave this place altogether

I am really disliking being back home after travelling so much, I cant get settled. It happens every time. I am constantly agitated and fidgety and completely not able to focus. The first week back was so busy that I didn't really have time to miss being away, but things have died down and all I want to do it pick up and move. I loved being able do that, just pack up and head to a new place, a new exciting adventure waiting for me, whenever I wanted...I don't know how I'm going to adjust to a full time job with limited holidays for a whole year!!! Oh well, I'm off to the beach for the long weekend, hopefully I'll be thinking more possitively by the time I return :)
Have a Happy New Year, Peeps xxx

Singing sweetly through the night...

Hope you all had an extremely rad Christmas and are getting ready to defy the stereotypes and actually have an awesome NYE! (they never seem to be what you want them to be)

Wow, I have such a crazy busy week. After all the flying and travelling, I got back to mountains of paper work and and 45 degree heat. Although, this last week has been packed with Christmas parties, so it's been insanely busy but a lot of fun. I have started to plan my next adventure too :) Hope you're all having a rad time getting ready for Christmas. We have left it a little late, but I'm now off to decorate the Christmas tree...It's good to be back online :)

Oh and I am obsessed with Passion Pit and have decided to follow Kings of Leon around the world on their next tour :) x x

In the meantime...

NYC is AWESOME!!! I have had sooo much fun, wandering aimlessly through Central Park, cute winter outfits, eating at any possible time of the day or night, Wholefoods - OMGosh!!!, Sephora, the twinkly lights, oh and accidentally walking down a street and stumbling across Blake Lively filming Gossip Girl has probably been a major highlight!! I haven't been able to upload any of my own pics yet (I have taken soooooo many, but don't worry, I'll only bore you with a few) so here are some cute pics by Corinne Stoll that I found rather pretty. Chat soon & thanks for all the comments, love xx

Just a small town girl, Living in a lonely world, She took the midnight train going anywhere

Lesson of the Day(according to society, not me) : Girls and Guys cannot be 'just friends'! Apparently, watching a movie together with 2 other people in the room also watching the movie with you, translates into you sleeping with the married friend! Do people seriously have nothing better to do that fabricate completely false facts and advertise them around town???? Seriously, people of HC, GET A NEW HOBBY!!! My town is the worst for gossip, thank God, I'm outta here on Tuesday!!!! Aaaaanywaaaaay, on a much happier (& calmer) note, I did have fun this weekend! Last night, I went to two of my good friend's place for some much needed girl time & it was my last night with them before I jet off to the US. We ate tacos, watched That 70's Show re-runs and swapped stuff. We each brought along some much loved stuff that we were just a little tired with and we all swapped our stuff! It was so much fun, I came home with a new tshirt, hand bag and funky cord bracelets...I highly recommend trying it with some friends, it was a very fun night :) Hope your weekend was just as rad, if not, more :) x x x

In a tree by the brook theres a songbird who sings

I really wanna go tree climbing!!! But my week will actually entail me flying to sydney, visiting one of my best friends, dying my hair back to blonde and flying to NYC!!!! I'm sure I can find a good tree along the way :) Hope you're having a rad weekend!

It just feels so good!

... when everything in life is finally looking up, when you get a parcel in the mail from your very best friends, when you're about to head overseas, when your crazy friend visits & your parents are away & you can go motor bike riding, when it RAINS for for first time in about 8 months and when you finally decide to give up on trying to plan your life and just let everything happen in its own time... x x x :)

This weekend, whist trying not to think about my life, I came to realise that a lot of the pics I looove and use a lot on my blog are from yyellowbird. I have found them via an array of different blogs and tumblrs, not knowing that they are actually all by the same photographer. Only today, did I realise this and manage to check out her flickr...and all her pics are amazing, this I already knew, but there are so many more beautiful pics of hers! Atleast now I can credit someone for some of the lovely pics that I frequently use :)

PS: I want that beanie!!

Rings on her fingers...and a plane ticket in her hand.

I am sooo excited to finally get to some shops, its not funny! I am going to hunt down some rad jewellry like in the above pic, no matter what it takes :) I am also so ready to get out of this crazy little gossip mill that is my town. Two posts ago I said that I didnt have any 'boy drama' to add to the accumulation of events currently pervading my life, well, now there is some. Boys are seriously the hardest creatures to be 'close' friends with, they make life so difficult sometimes. But moving on now...Have a great weekend, I'm sure going to try :) x x

So who's the girl wearing my dress...

The absolutely Gorgeous dresses at the Elle Women in Hollywood even remind me that I need to find something to wear for my cousins wedding in January :)

Why am I soft in the middle, The rest of my life is so hard.

Hectic week. Soooo much on my mind: Here's a snippet of what I've got on: A new Youth program I've started in my town, volunteering as Publicity Officer for my town's Christmas Programs, my work that is sucking in gigantic proportions, planning my rapidly approaching trip to the States (cannot wait!), my last unit of Uni (which I am failing miserably), managing to maintain and support effectively my close friendships, friendships where the other person is facing dump truck loads of spectacular drama and I'm still attepmpting to work out what to do with the rest of my life!!! I'm lucky that there is no boy drama to add to the chaos, the chaos that is my life. I want to be able to fall asleep for about a month, that would do it, a month and wake up fully refreshed and revitalized and ready to go! But I honestly think I will need a whole entire month!! :) Catch ya soon, Cupcakes (I'll be blogging again before a month is up, dont worry) L O V E x x

Release is Peace

I have been so occupied lately and not with anything of actual meaning. My parents are away and the boys (electricians that work for my dad) are back in town (all three of them) and although I'm still meant to be looking after my little 7 yr old and 10 yr old sisters, I have been really ingenious with the whole multitasking thing and have been able to feed them, put them to bed and still manage to incorporate some awesome 'roof time' with the boys. The Roof has become the latest trend. The boys have recently got new little units relocated to our property and the roof of these units is relatively flat and also situated on a hill, providing us with the BEST location for late night chats, drinks and amazing star gazing. It's my catharsis. When I'm up there I'm able to forget the fact that my job kinda sucks arse and also the fact that living back at home is currently driving me insane! I'm loving it, just hangin' out with the boys. I've also started running, every afternoon. It's been awesome. I have heaps of Paramore on my Ipod and can't stop running when they come on. My feet hit the ground in sync with the awesome bass & drums. My mind drifts to another place, completely. It's insane!

Kristen is in the next issue of Interview mag complete with an AMAZING photoshoot, one of her best so far, in my opinon. She interviews pretty well, as well as any aspiring 19 year old actress can. I'd say probably better :)
