I’m a few weeks away from my year 11 exams and for once I’m not too stressed, I know it’s crazy, me not being stressed, but it’s true. Obviously I wish they weren’t a thing but they are and I’m weirdly cool with it (it’ll be a different story when I’m about to go into the exams but for now I’ll enjoy this relaxed feeling). The one thing that isn’t helping my stress levels is that all my teachers seem to think it’s a brilliant idea to have tests and assignments all on the week leading up to exams, I don’t get it, in what world is that a good idea?!
Anyway now that I’ve got that out of the way let’s talk about the one thing that I love more than anything in this whole world (that’s a bit extreme but I do really love it) and that is CHRISTMAS!!! I absolutely adore christmas, it’s one of the only holidays that people actually get into in Australia, so it’s a big deal. For as long as I can remember I have loved christmas, I love the feeling in the air and how everyone is happy and just everything!!! I have big plans for my blog this christmas, I know I’ve been pretty rubbish lately at writing on here but in December I’m going to make up for it all with…. 12 Days Of Christmas on my Blog!! I might try to come up with a catchy name but the general idea is I’m going to write a blog post each day on the 12 days leading up to christmas!! I’ve already got so many fun christmassy ideas and I just can’t wait. I want to do this to hopefully get you even more excited for christmas and I know that I will get so into the christmas spirit by doing it too so it’s a win win. Ooo It’ll be like a 12 day advent calendar for you guys leading up to christmas eve!! I can’t even contain my excitement hence why I’m telling you in October but oh well haha.
My ball is at the end of January and I have definitely been having trouble getting a dress, I’ve looked on every website and been into all the stores, I even bought a dress off Asos (it was super pretty but I just couldn’t see myself wearing it to the ball so this dress was out too) and finally last night I bought a dress!!! Its red and flowy but fitted at the bodice and it has mesh which is practically invisible with beading all on the arms and down the back, I love it so so so much. I would put a photo in but unfortunately I didn’t take any in the shop but I’ll be making a Ball 2017 post for sure which will have heaps of photos from the night. If your interested I got my dress from Bride’s Selection in North Perth, all the ladies that worked there were so lovely and extremely helpful, they made my experience so enjoyable. 10/10 would recommend (the dress prices vary so you can get dresses for a reasonable price and more expensive dresses too).
I’ve updated you on all the big things that have happened recently so I better be off but within the next few days I’ll be posting a Holiday Post with photos from my week away and maybe a Girl Talk post as well so stay tuned.
Thank you so much for reading and following my blog it means the world to me ♥
