sharks don't bite....right...?

Well, I'm back from camping. And can I just say;

First of all, I enjoyed it. Heaps. I loved the sunset and the crabs and the crystal clear waters and the dolphins! Most of all I loved the beach, where I actually went into the waves and got dunked very many times, I loved the massive shallow lake that had waves because of the wind! It was cold on arrival, but heated up quite perfectly on the second day. There was a pool (which was not camping experience) spiders, snakes, possums, a SHARK, dolphins (yay!) and crabs. In the night, when it was pitch black, we scurried onto the beach and searched for crabs. They scuttled around everywhere and they were cute!

Although it was amazingly fun every second, there was a scary JAWS like moment. We were all having fun in the patrolled beach; crisp white sand, heaps of waves, blue water etc etc. My uncle had told me that dolphins sometimes came into the water, so when there was a dark shape I wasn't too worried.

My brother, cousin and I were out back and couldn't heareveryone screaming at us, and when we finally did get it I was so scared I just couldn't move. Luckily, I did, and we came out and the lifeguards got on their little board and swam out. It was 30 minutes before we got back in again but I was still petrified. A shark!!! A real live eating, slimy, chewing, weird, grey shark!

Besides that, after that we went for some fish and chips and took a walk on the break wall, which is a boardwalk which goes what seems like forever, over this massive lake (which is really awesome and fun) and then ends at the ocean. On the left as you walk is a park for a few metres, than a beach, and on the right is the lake. My aunty was the first one to spot the dolphin, and they are amazing little creatures. Diving and swimming and so happy. We walked to the end, crouched on rocks and watched the creatures while munching on Heaven Macadamias.

Life's all good right about now. :)

30 Letter Challenge 2

My Crush
Hmm, I have several crushes, but I will probably do the one who I have loved for yonks...

DEAR You know who,
It's not fair to say you're my crush, because I picture you and I getting married. I love you.

Hey, I've known you for all my life, there is a photo of us kissing and holding hands, I'm pretty sure it's fair to say I love you.

But, you hardly notice me as anyone amazing. I mean, I'm the only girl you ever talk to, which is pretty cool. We hang out a lot, we play basketball and watch Simpsons and eat food, and every time I see you it's like a surge in me.

It hurts me that you are very popular and that most girls like you, but you're kind and sporty and shy and quiet and cute. I just want to say that someday, it must seem perfect that we will get married and have a future, because I'm sure our parents will agree.

30 Letter Challenge 1

Now, now, now. fIRST off, just a little snippet of my day;

I went shopping with emlem and samlam and we ate and sang and broke things accidently in david jones (it was just one bra hanger guys!) until we died. I laughed so hard a bit of ice cream came out of my mouth and landed on the hot dog/penis poster. :D

The 30 Day Letter Challenge has probably already passed, but I want to do it. The point is I won't be on here every 30 days, so I'm just going to do 30 Letter Challenge, which means I'm going to do the 30 Letters at random and whenever I want, so here's the start :)

My Best Friend
This is extremley difficult, as I honestly can't think of who my best friend is. A best friend is meant to stay forever, but sometimes they don't, I mean can a best friend be someone who was amazing for a few months then drifted away?

I'd have to say that alls fair, Dear Emily. I've known you since year 1, and I remember how you didn't like me at first and you hung out with Lara until I convinced you to include me. I love our random voices and that we crack up at anything, I love how you don't care about anything and how you're so tiny. I love how we went bra shopping and you were so excited because you fit an 8AA, and I love how at my old school we farted in Mr Mac's room ;P

I didn't like it when we fought in year 6, but I loved it how we made up and are now better than ever. I hate it how I never see you, and that I'm not involved in as much because of the distance, I love your voice and how random you are, I love it how we can talk about nothing.

I love how when we both liked Tom we sat down with him, told him and were so scared we ran away and avoided him all afternoon, until we decided we didn't like him anymore. I love it how we have a nerdy group which is the best damn group in the whole world, and I love it how you don't care about going to the beach party you weren't invited too.

I remember how in year 6 I didn't want to get changed in the PE rooms in front of everyone, so you sneaked down with me to the staff rooms and we got changed there, and how one time we were in there and we were really scared. I remember how I swam in your pool once and we made noodle rafts, which broke.

Most of all I love our wacky nicknames: domlom, emlem, emibem, emblem, flemhead, muffin, farty warty.

I miss you and love you Emlem <3

meg is awesome.

December. The month that strikes fear in all parent's hearts and joy in all kid's hearts.

The month where the most money is spent on Christmas presents, time at the shops and most electricity is used due to the heat and Christmas lights. The heat kicked in today, i really felt it. Ugh. But i am insanely in love with December, because it means Christmas and who is not happy about that??!!

There are a few people in the world who aren't though, homeless and poor people who can't afford presents or don't have a home to go too, i think that's when you need to look at the true meaning of Christmas to get happy and do some stuff to help everyone. Just saying folks :)

Aside from that, Megan Washington is pretty damn awesome. Lulling me with her quirky lyrics and soul personality, you should really give her a listen folks, you'll love it;

Well just a quick little blog because I am heading off to friends for dinner, which will be exciting . :D

i am switzerland.

I am silent on this matter from now on, because I am switzerland. I have no team, I am my own matter.

I just don't understand why I am to blame? ? ?

But, to push that aside;

Yesterday was hysterical, we went on the slide a bazillion times and I fell off for the first time, it was awesome as. I fell of and was sliding on my bum and was enjoying it, and then Anna, who was still on the boat said,

"What happens when we go out?"
"You're gonna come out first and I'm gonna slam into you!"

She was right of course, i came out, all was good and then she flew right over me. Awesome.

I also jumped off the tower, which is good to do if you like having a wedgie and then getting that pushed up into your bum as you free fall for one second down a five metre drop or so.

Well, now i'm heading off to awesome land; church. HAVE FUN!! :)

never abandon a friend

proverbs 27:10

Today, when just about everything in my life was going smoothly, something stuffed up. The person controlling the atmosphere pressed a button and a nuclear bomb took off. And it was my fault for texting; I should never have done that. I just get so stressed when there's fights because at my old school there was hardly any, and they were only small and silly. It's amazing to think that after all this while, i still haven't had one fight with my old school friends.

I'm not perfect either, and i think we all know that. But all good things come to an end, and before things get pretty they get ugly. Blah blah. I think in my last fights, God really helped me to pull through, and I hope He does know.

I'm not saying its all you, because it's not. You were ignoring me today, but I kind of understood that because I know about Tessa and Zanna, and I was hanging out with Zanna, but I figured that we could resolve this. I know honestly that it will sound bad but I am so hurt every time I see you and Tessa, not because I dislike Tessa but because I used to be that person.

I wasn't taking sides. I read all the Polyvore and listened to Michelle and I know she feels insanly guilty and sorry, and I do think that it was a bit weird for tessa to say they didn't have much to talk about. I try to talk to you guys, but no-one told me what was going on so I didn't have a clue!

I don't want to loose friends over this, and I'm not going into details or getting into sides, but i just want to say this:

The only true friends I've ever had in my lives, the ones who stood by me forever, i had to abandon because my dad decided to pull us out of that situation. I tried to find new friends, but maybe i just don't attract the right people, because every friendship failed. One of them went off and made new friends and texted about me behind my back and became little miss popular, the next completely ran away from me and abandoned me at the time i needed it most; school, because i was going to her school and she was excited, until she found out how much i had changed.

Friends don't stay forever, and its something that life doesn't teach you. You have to work hard, to keep friendships alive. Sometimes people just don't click, and that's ok. I went most of my high school life without friends, until someone came along.

Now, it seems stupid but isn't it easy to forgive and learn to walk past everything, to become friends again? It's not. It comes with pain and sadness, a sadness that no-one knows about, that cakes in your body and comes out in little gasps until it all bursts out. Pain like knowing your best friend made a new best friend and chooses boys over you, pain that you keep forgiving and forgetting to find another knife in your back, pain that they laugh and tease you and say its all a joke, but deep down it hurts?

I think I've moved past all that, because its happened to me too much. Right around me, all my friends are changing. Getting boyfriends, putting other things in front of them, and i so desperately want to be back at that old environment; the one where it was caring and loving and everyone knew everyone and there was no swearing or make-up.

I don't know exactly what I did wrong, I know that i stood by a friend but is that wrong, because you stood by Tessa as well, and I know Tessa's going through hard stuff but so are all of us, deep down. I'm sorry, for whatever I did, I'm sorry for being annoying and stupid and embarrassing, but most of all I'm sorry that you could let something as silly as this come between you. I don't mean to sound petty, but I never would have thought this would happen, and I am sorry because I did stuff up. And I'm not going to beg on my knees, because I did that before and it doesn't make a difference, I'm not in the wrong here, I'm just caught in the middle. I'm sorry for Tessa; she'll be in my prayers.

I just want to not be hurt anymore, for my friends to not hurt anymore, to be able to not have any drama. It's an impossible wish.

you can learn lots from metal work..

Yes, yes you can.

I learnt a few things today in metal work; that the grime and mess -that comes with bending an annoying piece of metal that is not bending and is causing your fingers to ache more than that time you jammed them in a shower door- is not easily removed. I found this after Kate 'accidently' smudged some brown sludge on my white shirt.

Very funny Kate, but at the same time, I had a hacksaw in my hand and was ready to slice your fresh skin open and consume your slippery organs-

I also learnt that our teacher is a bald old man who doesn't care about life. Yeah, suck that up Mr I Don't Care About My Student's Bladder Needs And Yell At Her Because She Wanted To Go Pee.

I also learnt that I'm completely annoyed about the whole *sigh* tessa and logan issue, I mean I understand she likes him but do we honestly have to care about boys??!!

This arvo I bought three mags; two Yens and one Frankie.
In one of the Yen, i was a lucky girl. A very lucky girl. there was a free totally awesome Laneway Festival CD in there, yes a CD!!!!! It contained a bunch of awesome tracks which i have been belting out since a few hours ago:

camp :)

So I haven't been blogging for a while, just a quick update on lifee;

So on the weekend i went camping-and i'm talking about a totally awesome youth camp that was amazing in every aspect. we arrived at the campsite at around 9;00 in the night, which was a bit late. The car trip up was extremely fun and consisted of me asking the boys all these annoying questions and them being extremely annoyed, but mystified, by me. I was eventually accepted into their 'homie H' group. :)

When we got there, we clambered out of the car and i had a reunion with Tidi, Jordan, Kate and Tilly. Sim was in the car with me. We jumped up and down and tidi, kate, tilly and i were sharing a little caravan, which was tidi's. So we loaded our luggage into it and sorted out the beds. I bought a massive red suitcase, loaded with clothes which i didn't even wear, a green bag with lollies and books, a beach bag with swimmers and stuff and a massive bag that contained sheets and a pillow and an air bed which i didn't even know i had until the second night!

It was arranged so Tidi and i slept on the queen bed, kate slept on the double and Tilly slept on the single. we went to the bathroom, which was a long walk away and pretty scary in the night-time, considering we had to walk through bushes and crumbly gravel roads. On the way up there, (it was kate, tidi me and tilly) a bunch of drunk guys, crouched over a campfire, called out, "Hey bitches, what's up girls?" it was a really terrifying experience and we sprinted up to the bathrooms, we were still shaking!

The boys stayed in our caravan for a while, and we had a meeting with the youth around the campfire, and everything was good. In the morning we awoke to Jordan's annoying laugh and simi banging on our tent, so we got up and trailed around the campfire. Bacon and eggs were for breakkie, so we scooped up our tucker and ate with spirited conversations.

After breakfast, we went to our caravan to get changed into our swimmers. We met with the older boys on the way and chatted, and i picked up the annoying habit of saying 'awesome' in a high pitched voice:
'I'm awesome, this is awesome, we're awesome, because it's...awesome!'

Kate gave us the idea of using coloured zinc to draw on our faces and colour our lips, so we went out like that and made a style statement (:
After devotions and a few chats here and there, we were off to the beach! The beach is hard to explain, because of how awesome it was, just try to picture this: there was a narrow, shrubbery trail that led out towards a sandy, sheltered with trees area. You couldn't see the water but you could smell the salt so you knew you were there. There were trees dotted everywhere, and as you walked along, the trees dispersed and suddenly you saw these mounds of sandhills and this really dense forest, and between the hills and grass you could see the water. The crystal blue water stretched on forever, the waves were reasonable and the sand was white. There was a little mini rain forest opposite the water, which we founded as 'our spot.' The only other people on the beach were these group of gay guys, which was pretty funny.

The water was freezing, but, unlike other beaches, it was quite deep close to the shore, so a few metres in and i was already up to my shoulders. There was no big frothy white waves, it was a calm private beach and really serene. I went out pretty far because the waves just sort of gently tossed you about. it was beautiful.

there was this MASSIVE rock face next to the beach, about 100 or so metres high. There was a strip of shallow water separating it from the beach and the rocks, and Ben, Sim, Tidi, Kate, Tilly and i ploughed over and climbed it. Kate, ben and i only climbed about three metres and rested on the cool rocks, gazing over the beach. However, the rest of the daredevils climbed all the way to the top, where there was a green paddock.

We stayed at the beach for ages, until lunch, and then we trooped back. Lunch was hot dogs and they were delicious, i sat on Tidi's lap the whole time. After lunch i think we just chilled around, talked to the boys and rested. Tidi read for a bit, but mostly we just hung out. At around 4;30 it was announced that we were all heading over to the beach to play a game! The game was awesome, you were separated into two teams and you hid a treasure somewhere along the sandunes or in the bushes, which were low shrubs. Then you had to sneak about and try to find the other team's treasure without getting tipped. The sandunes/hills/bush/forest was massive, so i crawled about, hid under trees and pressed myself against the hills. It was fun, at times i just gave up and lie on the sand, basking in the warm sun and playing with soft ferns.

After this, we jumped into the beach, which was even more freezing than last time because it was beginning to get dark, but still just as fun. We didn't bother to put sunscreen on because the sun was setting, and at this James called out, "Haven't you guys heard of moon tanning?" which cracked us up.

Dinner was delicious potatoes in jackets and lamb roast, and banana boats for dessert. After dinner, we trailed down to the showers, which were pretty gross, but ok. We spent the rest of the night lazing in the tent, cracking up at jordan's stupidity and just being awesome.

The next morning was the same routine: breakfast (pancakes) chill out, then one last beach stop. When we got back from the beach, there were these people having a birthday party and dressed up like animals, and they were really funny. We had a shower, talked, had some breadsticks for lunch, packed up and were out of there.

It was long, and if you didnt bother to read it thats ok, there was so much more but i couldn't include it because it would have taken 20 pages!

Better (:

If I kiss you where it's sore If I kiss you where it's sore Will you feel better, better, better Will you feel anything at all Will you feel better, better, better Will you feel anything at all.

Ugh. I'm sick of guys. Honestly. All they do is rip your heart out and then stomp on it until you're gasping on the ground with blood flooding out of you.

Boys are inconsiderate bastards, and i learnt this the hard way. at our school dance a few nights ago, my one true crush (or so i thought, let's call him cherry) was happily skidding about with his mates. Ignoring the drunken turmoil and couples hooking up and grinding everywhere, Brit and I stumbled around, trying to find him, with Holly (who also used to like him) tagging closely behind. We saw him, and the second we did it was like he punched us. Just as Break you Heart came on (hate that song) we spotted him, clutching other girls bodies and slimy twisting around them, holding their hips and boobs and acting like he was the freakin king of the world. I mean did he not see us stalking him, squealing when he touched us, does he not notice that i ALWAYS stare at him! He can at least return the favour my looking at me!

Well stuff him anyway, we don't need him. Now i can focus on other people, like K and B and anyone else...but how come whenever i see cherry my mind explodes and my heart beats like a drum, and i feel as though nothing can compare to him??!!

Urgh. i'm done with them, absolutely done.

But to finish on a positive note: holy moley this is the awesomest news everrr! Well there's two awesome news, actually three:

  1. Ok so i was watching The Block with mum, and unsuspectingly, a REGINA SPEKTOR SONG CAME ON!! like, ok you may be thinking, wow she's getting a little excited there. But come on! Regina Spektor is like never played on tv or radio, and Better was playing! So ok, they didn't even play the words and only used the beginning part, but it was awesome!!
  2. I had a hearing test today, a slight loss of hearing in one ear, but the rest is fine! Yay!
  3. I'm entering NaNoWriMo, the writing competition! Yay!! I have written 2317 words of my story, out of 50, 00 so lets just hope i win!

She told me she hates me
And that I've changed
And we fought
Now she thinks we're ok
Well, we're not.
Everyone else likes you
And i dont hate you
Thats wrong
But i just think its better if we didnt



So here is my inspiration for today, and these pictures have helped me with my feelings. My writing and design have come majorly from these pictures today, so they might be a little sad or lost, but enjoy. Most of them are from we heart it and polyvore

Musings && Steph Bowe

So I was flipping through the latest (I think) issue of Girlfriend (yes I do read normal magazines!) and I started reading an article about Steph Bowe, a young author who wrote the book Girl Saves Boy at just 16. Now I haven't actually had a chance to read the book, but it sounds amazing: all about a boy who has cancer, who meets a girl who changes her life.

Now there are a few reasons why I love her:

1. Because I ADORE writing and really really extra truly want to get a book published (yeahhh, as if)

2. Her blog has inspiration pictures. Inspirational pics guys!

3. She sounds really down to earth and awesome.

4. She's flipping Australian! Shouldn't that be a good reason enough??!!

I am hoping that our local library has a copy, because I am so sure I will enjoy it. And, as soon as I read it I'll write a review and send a link to her, because I care. (:

My Playlist;; Monday 13th Sep 2010

I'm in a sad mood after Skiff died (read below) so the tunes are not exactly mellow happy, but are pretty great as well. Of course, Regina Spektor is included. Wow how I love how she's helped me.

Dead and Gone :(

I am writing this to inform you guys that, out of all the things that could have happened, my cat died. It was a very sudden car accident, and before I knew it, Skiffy, the love of my life was lying cold and dead on the side of the road.

She is so bright and colourful and loves life to the extreme, and she is a kitten of my other cat so we have known her from the very start. It didn't seem like she was ever going to die, the way she constantly ran around and around and never once got so much as screeched at by drivers, swerving to avoid her.

I miss her so much, but luckily an amazing friend of ours came and dug a grave out the back. She's burried underneath our massive old Mulberry tree, in a bushy clump sheltered by leaves. It was one of her favourite places to hang out, and I'm sure that she'll enjoy it, wherever Cat Heaven is.

My only worry is, and mum's, is that dogs will sniff her out, come into the yard and dig her up, eat her and then maul my other two cats. This being very precious Bangs and Skiff's mother, Tiffany. I am going over to her grave tomorrow to give her flowers, and I really do pray that she'll be protected.

All I can say is, that when something really bad happens to you, and you ponder God's exsistence and if he even cares about you, and then he fills you up with the most amazing feelings ever, and everything is okay for once.

Coming from afar

It's like forgetting the words to your favourite song
You can't believe it, you were always singing along.

So here I am, sitting listening to Regina Spektor, as always. She pretty much keeps my heart beating on a daily basis, isn't that sad?

I ran into a family who we are best friends with today, and it was painful mostly. Obviously, it was happy and exciting, but painful because I was just so missing them deeply. Her son is the most amazing friend I have ever had and I haven't seen them for so's just so hard.

It makes me want to just push forward the issue of staying close to your friends, because their so amazing. I am really missing them all and seeing them today just made my heart burst.

i miss you guys xo

What's in my handbag? (i swear!)

Okay, so I just wanted to clear a few questions before we got started. Why would I have a 'handbag?' Well the truth is, being the extremley sophisticated one I am, mine is not such a handbag as to a brown shoulder bag (v.i.n.t.a.g.e) from an op shop. Same thing. Also, the only reason I am carrying this around on a Sunday is because I went to the markets (as briefly stated before) and these are the very few items I carried before the heavy load of girls annuals and Bobbsey Twins.

  • Lucas Papaw Ointment (it was cold and my lips were chapped ok!)
  • Phone
  • Pocket Sunflowers Spritz On (by Elizabeth Arden)
  • Sunglasses (from an op shop-vintage black ones with gold frames, me likey)
  • Tissues (it was cold and my nose was runny!)
  • Camera (to take pics of awesomly vintage things which my budget wouldn't allow)
  • One blue and black flower earring (don't ask me...?)

So there it was. I hope it wasn't too boring or normal for your likes. I hope to think I am normal, yet people exceed me and make me feel like a strange, obssessed creapo.

I think im in love

What is it this time? I hear you ask...well...I may as well tell you.
Today I went to the markets with heather, and I think the markets is pretty much what I imagined heaven to look like. I fell in love with oversized bags, pretty clutches, droopy eyed puppes and VINTAGE VINTAGE VINTAGE!!

So I grabbed a few little vintage books and a hell of a lotta other stuff:
  • Ideal Book for Girls
  • Girl's Crystal Annual 1961
  • The Surprise Book for Girls
  • The Bobbsey Twins Annual
  • The Daily Mail Girls Annual

This books are all colourful and pretty and cute and vintage and they are wearing me down! I'm in a vintage overload! Plus I also grabbed some nanny looking cards and I have to say...OK....A CABBAGE PATCH DOLL!

Because I can! And because they are soooooooooooooooo cute! I always wanted one to keep in my room (which is a cluttered vintage madhouse) and prune and cradle and call my own. Her name is Giselle and she is beautiful.

Mags I have been-flipping-through-since-mum-took-me-shopping-and-I-found-my-old-stack-of-vintage-like-reads:

  • Frankie
  • Yen
  • Vogue Australia
  • Shop Till You Drop
  • Girlfriend
  • Teen Vogue
  • Oyster

So there is it, a random entry about my day because I am in total love with everything right now. I am going to crawl up with "Girls Annual," and read about pretty girls and perfect lives with cold lemonade and a blanket. So vintage.


So i've been on it for yonks and i left, and when i came back on there was a girl from america who had been like my pen pal for years, who missed me.

AWWWWW. Major guilt. So that set in and then i found my inspirtation and courage to create a new, ah-mahzing set that definitley perfected my feelings. So add me right now otherwise some giant alien fish will come out and soak up your insides. Just add me little darlings.

As always,

Dj (domlom) xx

Regina Spektor- Fidelity (ahmazing :)

I'm in love!!

One cold, bleak Saturday, mum suggested we go to the video store. So we did, and because I was so bored, i got a dvd.

500 Days of Summer.

If you honestly havent seen it, you are terrible. Your are worse than a cow pat. There are many great reasons why it's amazing, but I'll tell you a few of my faves ;;

- It has Zooey Deschanel from She and Him in it (gasp!)
- It has Joseph Gordon-Levitt in it, who is just about the cutest and coolest guy alive.
- The Soundtrack is pretty damn amazing.

1. Story of Boy Meets Girl - Mychael Danna,

2. Us - Regina Spektor

3. There Is a Light That Never Goes Out

4. Bad Kids

5. Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want

6. There Goes the Fear

7. You Make My Dreams - Hall & Oates

8. Sweet Disposition - The Temper Trap

9. Quelqu'un M'A Dit - Carla Bruni

10. Mushaboom

11. Hero - Regina Spektor

12. Bookends - Simon & Garfunkel

13. Vagabond - Wolfmother

14. She's Got You High - Mumm-Ra

15. Here Comes Your Man - Meaghan Smith

16. Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want - She & Him

So the movie is pretty much about a guy, who meets a girl, Summer, who is beautiful and whom everyone loves. And Summer doesn't want anything serious, all she wants is a fun relationship, and she doesn't believe in love. But he does.

It goes on to tell the story of how they came to be and its so cute! It made me laugh and cry equally the same.

i made cookies!

Very simple cookies, made using the recipe off the crunchy honey nut cornflakes packet, and they are YUM!!

ok, so they don't look the best, but they are melt-in-your-mouth-sensations, and they are yum. yum yum yum.

have i said that enough???

just for the fun of it

....i went on to one of those love calculator thingies! i know, i know, it is so stupid, but i just had the urge!

so, also just for the fun of it, i typed a few names in and here are the results ;;

  • shannon and sam- 45 %
  • maddie and liam- 45 %
  • vincent and mylie- 85 %
  • dominique and chris- 75 %
i know it's a bit suspicious that shannon and maddie's are the same, but wohhooo can i say for vini? him and mylie are meant to be :)

and don't even talk to me about chris, the last one was just pure idiotness, i would never, ever even let me mind think about chris, and shannon knows this :)

playing dress-ups

today, i embraced my inner child (even though i am already still a child) and took out all my dress-ups. i made it my goal to create 10 realistic outfits that i could wear out and about, and that no-one would actually laugh at or gape at me.

i checked out screaming mimi's for the much loved inspiration i needed, and created an adorable outfit. ahem. by adorable i may or may not mean just completley ridiculous, but it was screaming mimi's vintage and retro that inspired me, so therefore it is ok.

anyway, yesterday i was at tilly's, looking at shane dawson on youtube, and that screaming fred guy. funnnnnnnnny as! then we had pizza and melted chocolate and mixed it in with raw oats. an interesting flavour. and there was also those vegie chips...

aren't these sunnies just perfect?!! i love them so much, i almost feel sick. 38 dollars i think. from mimi's, and i will buy them, just you watch...

omegle video chat.

i swear that omegle video chat is the most disgusting thing that i have ever witnessed in my life.

tilly and i went on it and we were utterly disturbed, like in a major way.

never ever do this unless you want to be disturbed.

:D xx

my inspiration for today....

vintage inspired puffy blouses, chinos/ironed pants, whites and pinks.

created by me at looklet

new obssession?

ugh. don't even talk to me about obsessions, i get a new one every minute! every time i pick up nylon or oyster i get obsessed over something.

But this group is so cute, you just have to admit. Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles was discovered first, by me, on a podcast (free, yes shannon, freee) on itunes, and i LOVE LOVE LOVE them! Click the link on their cd cover to listen to their songs :)

My fave is definitely 'Special Party Time for Everybody' which is a cute, folkish, rockish song that is really catchy and stays in your head for ages. I'm pretty sure i have been caught belting this on high recently....

DOWNLOAD ON YOUR 'POD: sentimental heart by she & him, special party time for everybody by lucy michelle and the velvet lapelles, searing life by laneous & the family yah.

saving francesa by Melina Marchetta

If you want to cry, laugh, smile and get completely angry, then read this book.

It's about Francesa (obviously!) and her experiences with life, friends and love. It may sound like any ordinary teenage story, but it's different. It starts off with a perfect life, she goes to Stella's, had some amazing friends there and life is good. Then, things get bad.

Her mother suffers a breakdown, she changes schools to the crowded St Sebastions in the city, and losing her friends is tough and hard for her. Each day is a struggle as she goes to school, keeps to herself and doesn't really say much.

When everything is finally revealed, will Francesa realize that she has already found love and true friendship, or would it have all slipped right past her?

I know what you think, corny, huh? But it is amazing and will stay with you forever. It's pretty thick but I read it in like three days.

natalie tran

she's pretty sick, i mean really.

apart being australian (which is cool enough as it is) she is like the most subscribed to australian on youtube. and you can see why! her videos are just like everything i am, random,wacky, and cool. she does vlogs on just totally random things such as measuring tapes, spiders, and when you're watching a dvd and it starts skipping. hil-ar-iou-s.

best of all, she does the videos all my herself, and plays ever single character. and she is so FUNNY!! Sound confusing? check her out!!!!

Love, peace and sheandhim :D



bruno mars aka the hottest guy in the universe, is my new crush.


i mean, move over keith harkin, (although he's still pretty cute...) and enter....bruno mars. ahhhh, the name sends shivers down my back. he is so CUTE! and i heart him so, sigh....

i must right secret love letter to him...


it has been so cold lately that i have been reduced to wear my thermals at night. i know. it's horrible. don't laugh at me.

Anway, take a look at these pics of miranda kerr:

Before she went all 'big shot' (in dolly magazine!)

Now she's posing for 'big men.'

in the sun

She & Him - In The Sun from Merge Records on Vimeo.

this song is pretty much just the god of everything awesome, listen to it :)

my beauty test

ok, so i have decided to do something a little different, and actually do something that people can work with! So i will review something, like a song or whatever. not that i don't do that already, cos i do, but i will do it all technological so everyone can actually read it. today, i will be doing "lip balms."

Now, i'm a big fan of lip balm. i just love the nice, smooth feeling it leaves your lips and i love the sweet smells. but, sometimes, you can get some really ugly and disgusting ones. so i went out and brought some lip balms (ok, not really, i had them already...) and am going to give you the lowdown on them all:

nivea repair and protection: i am a big fan of nivea anything really, but when i bought this, for four bucks, i expected something a little, different.

FIRST IMPRESSION: Probably the coolest thing about this device is the fact that it has a little swivel tube, but besides that, not much else.
WHEN APPLIED: The actual lip balm is a little like a tube of wax, or a crayon or something. it doesn't have a pretty scent, it smells like wax. when it's on your lips, it feels like something really soft and feathery has just brushed up against it. it feels a little greasy and waxy, and it tastes funny. it makes the dryness go and leaves your lips tingling for more! (applying this is kinda addictive)

OVERALL: an alright stick, probably worth the price as it lasts a while, best used at school for quick fix.

palmers cocoa butter formula lip balm sunscreen stick: i always love the feel of palmers on my skin, so i wondered what it would be like on my lips.

FIRST IMPRESSION: can i just say, that this is really hard to open! seriously, i couldn't even open it at first! it smells really nice, like cocoa butter (obviously) and coconut. but the smell got a bit overwhelming after a while...

WHEN APPLIED: it was a bit grainy and tastes funny, but it felt nice and smooth on my lips. if you use to much though, well then there goes your taste buds. disgusting. after you smack your lips together for a bit, you notice that the greasiness goes away. visibly reduces lumps and bumps.

OVERALL: i didn't really like it, i enjoyed nivea better. best for people going to the beach because it stays on in water and you wont notice the greasiness.

body shop shea lip care stick: i love all body shop stuff, and i'm pretty sure they love me too :)

FIRST IMPRESSION: it looked cute and pretty, something that i could carry around with me. it smells delicious! like vanilla, ice cream and spices all mixed together! even though it was small and doesnt last very long, i loved the smell the most and would buy a billion of them just because of the smell!

WHEN APPLIED: very light, quick absorbed and non-greasy. it is like butter on your lips, but not as sticky or greasy. it has a sweet taste. the only problem is that is is so quick absorbing you don't have enough time to enjoy the awesomeness :(

OVERALL: i loved it! it was non-sticky, and visibly reduced cracks and bumps and made my lips smoother then ever.

did you likey?

stuck in my head

songs swirling around my head right now are ;;

she and him: in the sun
forever the sickest kids: she's a lady

books i'm flipping through ;;

saving francessa by melina marchetta
11 birthdays by wendy mass
scott pilgrim vs the universe (comic)
something more by mo johnson (girlfriend fiction)
princess bride by william goldman

why are you so obssessed with me?

ok, so by now you may have noticed that i am obsessional. i can get obsessed over pretty much anything. well, my latest and so coolest obsessions are; (thanks to nylon)

she and him: can zooey deschanel get any cooler than this? her band is a mixture of soft guitar tones and sweet vocals. I actually think that the band posters and CD covers are actually cooler than the actual band, but that is why i am called 'bizzare.'

Shop till you drop: while i was splurging in sydney, on lots of things, (shoes, clothes, hairstuff, magazines, etc) i picked up a copy of the latest STYD magazine, and i was surprised, because it's pretty damn cool. i especially love the fact that they based this issue on 'fashion for all shapes and sizes,' and that is pretty cool.

dash and will: already an old obsession, dash and will are two awesome aussie cuties who sing songs that make your heart swell, in a good way.

11 Birthdays (by Wendy Mass) if you haven't heard me going on about this book, it's because you don't know me well enough. seriously. it transformed me, it is so cute and lovely. read it today, because your mind with thank you.

so totally life info

i'm looking to change some things.

starting with me, afresh:

- don't be friends with meanies
- stand up for people
- read more
- watch less tv

there was something really annoying in my day today, and that was subscribing to nylon for 15 dollars for the whole year, with a free nylon t-shirt and make-up, and realizing that i had lost the little slips :(

ps: does anyone know any good places where they have blogger layouts?? i need i new one urgently!! not really, i just feel like a change :D

NYLON April Review

ok so i don't know if i have made this very well known, but nylon is just about the most awesome magazine. Ever.

the April issue is genuinely pretty mad, with a few awesome things that make it stand out. For this review i'll include my fave sections and the regulars ;;

COVER: the cover is simple and cute, but i love the girl on the front and her pose. i love the big bold letters and "pretty major" looks neat.

After you skip through all the ads (there is about 10 pages!) you approach the article on eds letter and the nylon fanmail, where you can find random letters of readers expressing their dying love for nylon.

FASHION: there is the usual spectrum of nylon fashion. Pure amazementness. With mysterious, quirky, funky and girly photo shoots and catwalk shots, fashion in this magazine is a must. The photography is superb and the quirky pieces make flipping through the pages heaven. There are also some awesome diy projects that will get you sewing in no time.

BEAUTY: colourful make-up and flirty fragrances bring this magazine to its tops. with pretty and glittery wintery design, plus the fact that it is the beauty issue, the beauty section really made me smile. there are about a billion fun hairstyles and new looks to try out.
CULTURE: these articles range from "modern love," an article about zoe lister-jones, a few albums to get your head in the groove (features quirky bands such as the virgins, the clash and eartha kitt) and "soul survivor" about the beautiful Erykah Badu.

EVERYTHING ELSE: an article on ashley tisdale, blah. zoe saldana, swicked (sweet and wicked)

nb; zoe saldana mentions she loves 'sex rock and roll, you have no idea.' ok, hrm.

sydney was ah-mahzing!


it was the most fun i have had in years, i just have to say! Today we went to china town, and omg. i love it. it is like heaven, but better.

besides all the awesome asian gadgets and shopping malls and magazines and food, there was a small festival and heaps of quirky clothes stores. i tried crab and some random slice which tasted sooo good.

we went past (not into ) the APPLE store. oh my god. three levels of pure whiteness and touch screen. the best. oh and the ipad was being screened it was SO FREAKIN AWESOME!

and then there was a ferry ride, which was typically boring except when the waves crashed and you went rocking wildly....

i can't even express how pumped i am!

pigs and britney

ok, so there's a few people in the world who really make me angry.

One of them is Britney Spears. I can't stand her, at all. She is a hopeless singer and has got lost in translation in the modern world. Another one is pig-face.

She is so mean, pushing and shoving, pulling holly's hair, threatening her, i hate her. She should be dead. she is worse then a bully! shannon agrees with me, and i told mum this afternoon and she said that it was great we weren't getting involved.

pig-face reminds me of moon-face out of The Enchanted Wood, but not as cute or cool. I don't wanna be mean and say mean things about people for no reason, but this is just insane.

In reply to shannon...

this post is a really annoying and retarted one, and I am so annoyed off right now.

J is gay, i mean, i swear. And he called shannon fat (and you're NOT!) and then he totally pretended everything was normal! And it wasn't! Grrr.....i am not talking to him tomorrow, and i mean kristy is his friend but i don't see how.

Then there's this post: AWWWWWWWW......thanksyouthanksyouthanksyouthanksyouthanksyouaahhhh ok i can get a little over excited when people compliment me, cos i mean, it never happens. So she said i was beautiful, and i'm like, omg what the heck??!! But then i looked in the mirror and i'm like, she's right!!! :P

I try to have good self esteem, but sometimes it comes across as a little snobby snotty remark. So don't take it that way, because everyone is beautiful.

I believe that you shouldn't judge someone because they are not your idea of beautiful. I mean, what if your idea of beautiful is everyone elses idea of ugly? But it's not nowdays. Everyones idea of beautiful is skinny-minny, blonde, tanned, perfect. Ugly is anything that is not that.

But it's stupid. Because shannon is sooooo pretty and no-one should tell her otherwise!

Believe in your dreams and they may come true; believe in yourself and they will come true

Night night

Mr Laneous

They're called Laneous and the Family Yah, and they're music is pretty sweet. With names like, good at music and shit at life, it's so true.

Their song, Searing Life, is pretty good. And so is bubble-gum, and the film clip is so wicked! They have a quirky sound, like (anggeee) but it's more rap and hip hop then indie. They make music that gets your head pumping with sweet lyrics and mad solos. The songs stay stuck in your mind for weeks! Check them out in the above link...


Angie Hart.

aka the most amazing person. Ever.

Angie is like a god, come down in woman form. Her songs are indie, rocky/a-litt-bit-of-pop. She has quirky and soul lyrics and her voice is beautiful.

Angie lives here

Her fans live here

compare the pair...

Shannon made a blog!!! Follow >>>>> this blog

Apparently, when shannon was reading my blog, it was so good, she was 'inspired.' Wow, it's the first time I have ever been inspiriring, and let me tell you, I am not normally inspiriring. About as inspiriring as I get is setting an example of how not to behave. i just realized that writing inspiriring is really hard to type.

Shannon said she was stuck for ideas on what to write. I guess it's the same for me sometimes, as well. I normally write about my life, random thoughts, blah blah. But no-one wants to hear about that. So that's why I decided to create a new turn-a new lead and a new follower. I dunno, I guess. I want a make-over, sometimes I just want to wipe the slate clean I guess. Like when you're playing a ps2 game or something and you suddenly feel like starting the game again, just so you can relive it or maybe make a few changes when neccessary.

I also want a make-over of my life, my face, my body and my blog. Let's start with the first one:

My life- sort of drags on a bit. I mean i get up in the morning, have breakfast, go to school, do work, come home, listen to music, do homework, go to bed. Repeat. Sometimes I want it to be different, like maybe I'll wake up and suddenly there will be an earth-quake or something. Not really. I say things like that, like i really wanna car to hit me, and then i say not because i realize it would hurt.

My face- pretty obvious. It'll scare people off. 'Nuff said. I wish i had long straight dark brown hair, cheekbones, long eyelashes. But i'll never get it, so there's just no point moping.

My body- i can't fix, not really anyway. Unless i pay a billion-bloody dollars for liposuction or surgery or whatever. but i am kinda happy with my body. I'm beautiful.... <:0

My blog- I can fix this! will be a total make-over, for shannon :)

Celtic Thunderrrr

So I was at my friend's shannon's house this afternoon, and it was pretty cool. We were doing ordinary stuff, like hitting each-other, dancing, eating food, being stupid. That sort of stuff.
I was actually over there to homework, but we never did any. OK, we did a bit, but I am so gonna fail tomorrow because we have a religion assingment that I am suppossed to be doing right now, but I'm not. Did you want to know something awesome? Today in music, instead of doing work, we had our teacher play Oasis and Cyndai Lauper, and we stood up in class and sung True Colours, and it was pretty cool :)

Band of the moment:: uhmmm, definitley Celtic Thunder and Angie Hart.
Song/s of the moment:: Lauren and I by Celtic, and I'm Afraid of Fridays by Angie.
Shannon is coming to check out this blog. she better comment.....

Keith Harkin is a BABE, he's from Celtic Thunder and I love him! I will leave you with some pictures of his hottness...


um just pondering buttercups?!

So it is like, freezing cold here, I am all wrapped up in my blanket and sipping warm milk with milo :)

Anyway, so in the few hours we have left until school, which I hate, I was thinking about this blog. OK, well I was thinking about this blog and how nice a huge breakfast would be....but besides that.

So I called this blog, What Real Girls Do With Their Life, and I guess that it goes with the blog itself. But because I'm a real girl, I don't normally do very exciting things. I don't have gay parents, mentally ill brothers, an axe murderer story and I have never been on a plane or met anyone famous.

I'm a pretty boring person.

So I'm just asking you, that before you follow this blog, realize a few things about me. A: I'm boring. B: I love Norah Jones and Cheryl Cole. C: I hate cherry coke.

Seriously. I mean, man, Americans have some pretty disgusting food. I mean, peanut butter and chocolate? Yum. Cherry coke-flavoured-like-marzapane? Pretty damn feral. Never have it unless you like gulping marzapane and lemonade. Not a good combo.

Anyway, one day I'll grow up and I'll realize that, hey, I'm not as ugly as I thought, or maybe the opposite. I might stare in the mirror and be like: "Man, I have a chest."


But that's just me. I babble on a lot. So you better get used to it...<3

cat names and sugar rush

If I had a cat, I would name her Giselle. And if it was a boy, I would name it Goaty. I think they are just pretty much te cutest damn thing I have ever heard.

Tiq is a little black cat that belongs to my neighbour, and she's very, very social. She purrs and meows and kicks you and squeals at you, and then you grin and tickle her under the chin. Wouldn't you like to be a cat?

I had a little sugar rush this afternoon. Well, scratch that, I had a big sugar rush this afternoon. I had a massive burger and lots and lots of coke at Maccas and then we went to ALDI and bought about fifty billion lollies and then we ate them. By we, I mean me, myself, and I.

So I'm still on high and hoping this will last all through the boring school day tomorrow, which I am pretty much dreading.

So goodbye and love the peace in Norah Jones and Cheryl Cole, because they love you. And they live for the peace, oh man.

topics to talk about....

So I have a few random things in my head, swirling around some times. And when I'm trying to make conversation I will just burst it out, not even thinking about it, and the people will sort of stare at me in an odd way.

- "Hey, do you know that I'm going to name my kids Delta, Mandy, Lola and Nile?"
- "I'm allergic to milk....what are you allergic too?"
- "My mum is 30, how old is yours?" (don't use this...ever)
- "So you like Justin Bieber?"
- "Can you do this? (insert strange bodily function)"

So as you can see, I am pretty much stuffed when it comes to making conversation. So all I can say is....just don't talk to me. Ever.

I can leave you with how damn amazing Cheryl Cole is. And Norah Jones. Love the peace people, love it, love it.

home is where the heart is

I'm sitting right now on a really long white leather couch (comfyy!!) with a really soft leopard print doona wrapped around me. A plasma screen TV is oposite me and the walls are white with few bright bold decorations. I am typing on a white flat-screened apple mac laptop which is posistioned on a bold red coffee centre table. The aroma of musk and vanilla is floating around and soft music is playing from my sleek iphone.

I'm dreaming.

I'm actually sitting on an old wooden chair on my desk with a plain old black laptop and no plasma :( I was just trying to imagine the perfect home. But really, what is the perfect home? I have always thought that the perfect home is really modern and high tec, wit lots of gadgets and glass. Some people like the tiny little cottages or the great big spooky mansions.
Anyway, enough about houses.

I got a blender....

...and I made a smoothie!!!

As hard as this is to imagine, I have never, ever made a smoothie. And when mum bought me a blender I jumped up in the air and screamed and pretty much danced, because I was happy. Then we went shopping for ingredients, and boy was that hard! Mum made an effort to try and stay calm but by the end of the two hour Coles trip, we came out with a filled-to-the-brim trolley and mum's bank account was pretty much dead.

But it was worth it :)

This is what I did for my awesome smoothie: (I invented it)

  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1 container of plain vanilla yogurt (I used soy)
  • 1 cup of orange/tropical juice
  • 1 small frozen banana, chopped in pieces

Blend all the ingredients together until nice and smooth :)

I would have put a photo up but the smoothie was eaten a long time ago!
