what brain are you?

 source: http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/1CxCQ3

I consider myself both. I do maths and visual arts. It's known to one of the oddest combinations, cause you usually get someone whoms left brain: science, maths, wants to be a doctor or scientist, or you get a right brain: english, literature, arts, history, wants to be a lawyer. I'm both but at the same time neither.

published painting

 

So back in February, I got a letter from Snapfish, saying I had won a voucher for a "personalised" notebook. I had bought some permanent markers from Woolies in the summer break and there was a promotion, so I entered see-ing they were just giving away free stuff and plus who knows what you might win. Surprise Surprise I won something. I decided to get an old painting of mine published on the cover. Pretty cool, I guess now I can say I have a painting of mine published on a book. Hahahahs.

Anyways I spent my day trying to study english - assessment #4 on Friday - here we go!

Hope you had a lovely day!

doing it the gracie way turns 1!

source (http://favim.com/image/65978/)

Yes, that's right - this little bloggy here is one years old. I can't believe its been one year already, I still remember that one night I sat infront of my computer and clicked the 'new blog' button. Here's the thing, I don't know why I started this blog but I guess it was because I wanted to document my life, my finds, my thoughts and my inspirations. It has grown so much since that first random post or first outfit or first diy. Hahaha. I can't wait to keep watching this little space grown. Cheers and thank you to anyone who's ever read this blog or even clicked a post. You motivate me :) Thank youuuu....

this love



The best band ever. I remember listening to this song on the radio back in 2004 while during art time at school. You know, back in the good ol' days. Gosh, I can't believe that was 8 years ago - I feel old. Anyways, this is one of their best songs ever. Also Adam Levine is hot, just saying ;)

the tea canister


So the topic of tips tuesday.. today (wow, what a mouthful of t's) is the tea canister.
Tea canisters hold tea (obviously) and the Japanese ones have the most beautiful designs.


Anyways so onto the tip, I noticed that these little containers are great for holiday loose items in your bag. For me these little bits and bobs include:


1. Tooth picks - I have a whole stash of them. Having braces and all, you never know when a horrific embarrassing food-stuck-in-the brace moment could happen: it's shocking I tell ya. Absolutely shocking. So that's basically why I carry around my trusty toothpicks.


2. Bobby pins, hair ties and ribbons - an essential, I'm always losing my booby pins and the tea canister keeps them nice and snug.


3. Earphones - Okay, so basically I carry all my books (and lunchbox and bottle etc) in my bag and my earphones always get lost amongst the mess, hence tea canister = never lose them to the wrath of the the bag and getting tangled between books.


Hope this has inspired you in some way or another!

1901



New Iphone cover!

So I only went to school one out of 5 days last week. Went back today and kaboom! (I'm pretty sure a bird hit a tree somewhere in the Amazon rainforest cause he was in shock too). Two excursion/incursion notes (one's tomorrow), massive load of maths homework, modern homework, got one exam result back and realised I needed to urgently find a related text for english - assessment number 4 is next Friday.
Oh how wonderful year 12 is. I love you so much. (post - inside joke)

On another note, tips tuesday will be back tomorrow so look out for that.
I kind of strayed away from that this month, but were back on board the sailing ship people!
