★✩✮ Happy New Year ✮✩★

Glitter Graphics


Okay, so let us review last years goals.
  1. Go to Makeup Artistry school. DONE!
  2. Write a story. At least one & finish it. Damn. Didn't manage.
  3. Keep in contact with my close friends. And I sent a heap of cards to my relatives!
  4. Practice illustrative type. Yep. Done some practice. Could do more though.
  5. Do the Diploma of Hospitality Management. Completed my first semester. Woop woop
  6. Complete defensive driving course. Didn't manage.
  7. Get my full drivers license. *sigh* Didn't manage.
Four out of Seven. Not too bad I suppose.

So, 2012 is the year of the Water Dragon. How exciting! Over the last few days I've been deliberating my New Year Resolution (as you do for the month of December). Here it goes:
  1. Go overseas for my hotel internship. Maybe London? Yes please!
  2. Be more social and exploritative. (<-- not a word I know, but I need something that fits...something like that word).
  3. Write a story.
  4. Be more regular with blog updates. 
This year mum has decided to have a FISH theme inspired by Gordon:
Wild, huh?

Don't get me wrong, it is a very sedate party and you don't even need to stay to midnight. Woop woop. So the party schedule consists of: entrees, watch the River Monsters DVD by Jeremy Wade, mains and then dessert. Party at midnight: Optional. So yeah. Here's the photos.

Decor.

Par-Tay hats!

Serviettes. Cute, huh.

Entrees.

Christmas Pressies!

From Mrs. A.






I also got a matching candle.

A jewellery roll.

A pretty kimono-inspired jacket.



Also from Mrs. A.
Not the best photos but...meh...better than nothing. Also went to the second hand store and scored me some beautiful new scarves in good vintage condition!




I love the simplicity of this teal polka dot scarf.

★✝♥ Time with Family ♥✝★

Glitter Words 

Haven't got anything to really say. It was a simple Christmas with my family. Got up late and opened some presents. Mum and dad are so wonderful and still buy me and Nef presents even though we'd be quite happy without them.

After that, we went out to our family friends for Christmas lunch. It was highly decadent. I will try to post some pictures of my Xmas pressies. Unfortunately I assumed that there was a spare iPod cord at home, I didn't take into account that I might not be able to find it. In conclusion, my convenient point-and-shoot camera isn't available so I'm gonna have to use the SLR. 

Bye for now.

I'm a part of history!

My flight JQ294 is the first Jetstar flight from Queenstown to Wellington. As a celebratory gift Jetstar gave everyone on that flight a cute little cupcake in one of those Chinese takeaway boxes. How nice!
