The one true thing we have is time.

17 May

Time is the key. For my amazing friend who is the most beautiful girl ive ever met, is losing her mother in the slowest, most painfull of ways. She has been grasped by the firm hand that is cancer. This family is the least deserving family. Not that any family deserves such horror, but when you see such beautiful people going through what they are, it makes you wonder about alot of things.

You my love are amazing, so is ma, i know its been a long and hard fight and its so close to coming to an end and your both fighting harder than ever but i have never wished so hard for a miracle, a little more time. a magical tablet to pop up. Your love and courage has inspired me and so many other people. You are both incredible people and deserve to see each other grow old.

I send soososos much love to the both of you and may your finalย few daysย together be as peacefull, amazing and as full of love as possible

Dearest readers, Winter is here.

16 May

Oh and how amazing happy and joyfull that is!!! Its my 2nd favorite time of you behind autumn and infront of spring ๐Ÿ™‚ i love the colour, and fashion and everything, coffee, snuggly mornings in bed…mmm… Anyway, i knowย i have blogged in ages so this is a huge one, a catch up on what this little mind is thinkin and what these blue blue eyes are seeing and liking ๐Ÿ˜€ here we go

-College is next february, Stressed to the max with HSC work now that i ahevt o catch up but excted as can be for next year

-getting lots of bargains for winter including a nice new dress that is just a little bit naughty, just a teeny tiny bit, A gorgeous trench coat, Shoes โค jackets, scarves, jumpers…:) been having lots of fun, my purse? not so much :/

-Getting seriously excited about the fact that all the leaves are falling off the trees and leaving them looking so so so amazing.

-Hearing good news, a little bad, but mostly good ๐Ÿ™‚ Love you sososososos much Jxxxxooxoxoxooox

-Looking at some new and fun winter colour schemes, none will come into action cuz of the time thing but loving the richness of purple ๐Ÿ™‚

Havnt done much D.I.Y stuff, again cuz of the time thing, wishing i could do something to put on my oh so bare wall though, Im thinking a canvas with rich purples and reds…thinking.

In deperate need of a trip to IKEA, no reason, just withdrawals…sad huh ๐Ÿ˜€

Appreciating, not loving but appreciating classical music.

Loving my family.

& my friends. Specially

Ive been cooking a bit, Carrot cakes, chocolate cakes, quiche, fritattas (spelling :/) and a lot of pavlova ๐Ÿ™‚ its so yummy in winter. NEW RECIPE.

for the topping of ur pav, trust me this is soooo yummo.

Buy a tin of pitted cherries in syrup, Strain the syrup into a pot on the stove and put the cheries in the fridge. Add about a cup of white sugar to your syrup depending on how much, just about equal it. A fair splash of vanilla essence or extract and a pinch of salt, boil it softly till the bubbles are big, boil for 3 moremins while the bubbles are big, Stir frequently or it will burn on the bottom. Leave it to cool in the pot, when its cool, if its not really syrupy then boil for 3-3 more mins. If it is, then prep ur pav with whipped cream and spread the cherries over the top, and slightly warm ur syrup just enough that u can pour it, we dont want hot syrup on the cream. And ther eu have it, YUMMMMMO. Tell me wnhat u think when/if you try it out.

heres some pics of what im seeing ๐Ÿ˜€ colours and stuff

I Promise to keep up from now on ๐Ÿ˜€ ill try my best. Its just time you see.

xxL Hope you are all well xxxo much loveย  Continue reading

Fresh coffee & Carrot cake.

8 Apr

Well the title said it all dosnt it. Late friday night with a HOT coffee next to me with a generous slice of yesterdays eas peasy carrot cake, just wainting to be eaten ย ๐Ÿ™‚

I played around a bit today, with food, picures and music, i love days like these where i can just do what i fee like doing and spend some time deciding what i like and what i dont like, especially in music, i get to try all my new recipes that were baked yesterday, its a tough job i tell ya ๐Ÿ™‚ but most important of all, i get to rest. I dont do it very often, if im not sewing or crafting or blogging or doing school work im on the phone to Mums clients which yes is seriously tiring or im helping clean the house…not fun…i mean yeah i sit down at the end of the day, about 5 outside with mum at our favorite tme of day and feel the sun slowly go down and the warmth dissapear while we go over our day and our plans for the day ahead ๐Ÿ™‚ its a blissfull time. But thats about it, im usually pretty energetic and wanna get things done but sometimes i just gotta do nothing!

๐Ÿ™‚

Here are some of the pictures i was saying i played around with a little.ย  mostly old ones that i finally got to editing and some new ones just for fun ๐Ÿ™‚

So Let me know what you tink ๐Ÿ™‚ remeber, there not serious photography, just playing around with different effects and things ๐Ÿ™‚

Till next time

6 Apr

ย A star in the making ๐Ÿ™‚

Is it wrong that i post pictures of my pretty new mug? Did i mention it was $1…thats all not zeros to follow just 1. Amazing pattern and colour…i was tempted to buy the whole lot!! they had them in yellows and reds and blacks and well…the blue stole my heart as you can see.

i love the way my camera focused so nicely on the pattern in this shot ๐Ÿ™‚ Dreammmyyyy.ย 

And this one, well i could smell the sweet coffee that was sitting in that pretty little mug and thought…well they will need to see the glorious colour. ps: this is the true colour of blue that it is. Nice eh?

A fresh start & An exciting new adventure

5 Apr

Today i went to CATC, i walked up that glorious water side path and entered my future ๐Ÿ™‚ oh how spectacular it was. The view…i will defiinatley be putting up pictures. The people, all on the same creative mind set as I. The sheer atmosphere blew me away, so welcoming and where i want to spend the next HUGE year of my life.ย  And only hours after i had left that glorious place, an email came through. ‘Letter of offer’ I quitle litterally did a little (or large) dance…my heart sang and i felt like Lauren not L not lara not elle, Lauren, ME!! and i thought, 3.5 hours of travveling for a 4 hour class every day, cold cold nights getting home at 7 pm…a long year chocckers with long, tiring, ‘i wanna give up’ moments…But it all sounds like a dream to me. Is that strange? The train, the cold winter nights the odd sleeping patterns, to workload…the life….its sounds amazing and i can.not.wait. The 6th of june 2011 is the day that my future will begin ๐Ÿ™‚ have i ever been more scared, nervous and excited before in my life? i dont think so.Im going to be the youngest in my class a big jump from around 21 to 17…bit daunting andย I cannot draw :/ a slight issue i beleive, but im a fast learner!!

I just wanted to sare this amazing moment with anyone out there reading ๐Ÿ™‚

thankyou thankyou thankyou.

A bit of a catch up

4 Apr

Wow…what a week. Not blogging has been strange but glad as cake to be back into it.

CATC visit this tuesday, and its at the point where i start doubting myself and the ‘Projects’ ive put into my creative portfolio. I really dont have much if any expericene in design but im 100% certain i LOVE it so i just hope that passion shows through my portfolio, Fingers crossed.

Exams are almost over with, only hospitality which is a breeze for me and woodwork whish is more like a cyclone…but ill live im sure ๐Ÿ™‚

Struggling with typing at the moment with a pinched nerve in my shoulder, but i shall power on!!

Im feeling really great at the moment like personally, i can feel that ive matured in a certain way in the last few weeks, ive made a few changes concerning the people around me and how they make me feel…I know, it sounds terribly selfish but when people are bringing you down and not really being as supportive as freinds should be its time to let go. Im finding myself doing things ive always thought would be super daunting and not even realising i am. like going and doing the groceries, not a big deal but oh so grown up ๐Ÿ™‚ its just a nice feeling.

Ive a new found love in grass ๐Ÿ™‚ yes it is as crazy as it sounds, i got up thismorning totaly chilled out and went outside with my SUPER cool sunnies on and just laid on the grass…I wasnt worried about ants or dirt or anything, i just laid there and felt the coolness of the grass mess up my already messy morning hair and make my legs itch, and for once, it was a nice feeling ๐Ÿ™‚ im not locco i swear!! haha

ย Thankyou ๐Ÿ™‚

Orange trees, boots and jeans :)

27 Mar

Yes it has happened, the trees are changing as is the whole mood of the place as well as theย temperature. One day i was walking around in swimmers and still burning right out of my skin, the next day i found myself pulling out my dusty last season jeans and boots that rub just a little on my toes and put red spots on my ankles. Its always a nice time of year, when the leaves fall off the trees like orange rain and the morning are full or sun but a fresh cool air that sure wakes you up when you walk outside barefoot. Its that time of year when you can snuggle under the donna and not die of dehydration ๐Ÿ™‚ its beautiful…

So there are some of my Autumn shots from our Backyard ๐Ÿ™‚

This week ive been pretty busy, but happy, oh boy am i happy :). 3 weeks till scotts home~!! cant wait. Bestest freind.

Birthday parties for uber dooper super cute kiddies and gaining a nice little babysitting job from them whcih isnt really a job because as i mentioned

there suber uber dooper cute ๐Ÿ™‚ and i love them!! and there angels with me so lifes good.

watching those same kids eat more food than you could possible imagine. “the fairies came and ate my last marshmallow (covered and i mean covered in chocolate and sprinkles) so i think we had better go getย  another” this went on for hours, ending in about 13 marshmallows consumed between two very teeny tiny little kiddies.ย  Oh joy for the suger rush afterwards haha glad they went home ๐Ÿ™‚

My exams are next week so im oreparing and biting fingernails and wondering “are these my last exams in school’ ๐Ÿ™‚ such an exciting prospect!

Ill write a huge catchup one asap promise

much much love

To those people that do more than their job

17 Mar

I LOVE YOU!!! honestly, what would i do without amazing people like them.

Im panicking and i dont care how its spelt. My application just isnt coming together, i have so much ‘stuff’ happening at school, teachers breating down my neck but all the while im off in dreamy land CATC is just floating around in this teeny tiny little head of mine with a roadtrain of creative ideas following. This is top priority though, Application lauren, finish, make it pretty, dont ruin it, copy this, get that reference…the list goes on….an ON. But then Emma bailey, The year course advidor at CATC emails me, out of nowhere, how amazing! and lets me know that shes there just waiting for my question (while doing a million other things too) and im calm…honestly, we need more people like her!!

Just wanted to so thankyou to the giving people out there, those people that understand, that care, you truly are amazing.
