A few pictures I took a while back with a disposable camera. The girl in them is my little sister, who I coerced into traipsing up to the back of the new estate with me, carrying a quilt, which got us numerous odd looks.

I quite like how they turned out, I definitely prefer film/disposable cameras over digital, despite the fact that they're more time consuming.

Pretty dresses.

So recently my school's started to organise our deb (or more formally, our "presentation ball"), something that's offered to Year Eleven every year. I'm not quite sure how to explain it...basically it involves all the girls getting dressed up in pretty white dresses and the boys wearing suits, a bit of ballroom type dancing and dinner. And then more dancing. It is most definitely not the whole girls getting presented to "eligible bachelors" event that it used to be. It's just a lot of fun and well, a chance to look nice.

What this means is that as of late I've been spending a fair bit of time making my way through websites and websites of lovely dresses, that are in most cases, a bit too expensive for my casual after school job to afford.

Here are a couple I've been swooning over lately - dresses from Papilio's The Nymph collection. Fingers crossed I find something similar that's a little less exxy, and little more located in Australia, not Belarus...

So I'm back (hopefully).

I think it has to have been almost a year since I've posted on here, which is a tad bad. No, not just a tad. A lot bad. Excuse the poor grammar. Getting caught up in school (aka too many assessments) and work and other numerous things that make up my life has led me to neglect something I really enjoy doing.

So, I'm back. And I think I'll be staying for quite a while yet.

P.S. I will be sure to post something of interest later. I've got quite a few ideas for this little blog now :).
