"somedays we can barely crawl; we're learning to be beautiful"  
This last week has been battling with frustrating spreadsheets at work, having headaches nearly every day & not sleeping properly at night, yet I am strangely content and inspired these days.

Happy things:
thebluebells is coming here next month!! I can't wait to see her again ♥

♥ I bought this beautiful book, The Goddess Guide from a girl on the Vogue forums for only $10, and I absolutely adore it. The colours & the photos & the cut&paste & random pages of handwriting & tips about all things girly are so lovely! I can't stop flicking through it, inhaling the colourful pages, being inspired by the pictures and the style. I want her follow up book now too, The Goddess Experience, which looks just as beautiful.

prettiness ♥

♥ Even though I have been studying all week when I'm not at work, I am feeling motivated & excited for my last year of my masters. Towards the end of last year, I was dreading more months of constant work & study, feeling burnt out by the mere thought of another year. But now that it's 2009 and I am going to be finished by November, it doesn't seem so bad after all. That light at the end of the tunnel? I'm really seeing it now. &I am very excited about what the future will bring, career-wise.

♥ It has been so hot here this week, and I love it. I've been wearing cute skirts, Mad Hatter tea party shirts, & striped stockings when it cools down.

♥ I think I am going to ask if I can go into work late next Wednesday, as Obama's inauguration ceremony starts at 3:30am over here, and I want to stay up and watch it :P

♥ More gorgeous blogs I have been reading lately: Wish Wish Wish and The Cherry Blossom Girl; fashion & style & pretty things.

♥ &speaking of blogs, Noel has been encouraging me to start up my Lace & Stars blog again...

SBS will be screening it from 3am AEST (so I think that is 2:30am for you?) - and cnn.com will have streaming of it from midnight AEST, so I think I will get up then to start watching the live streams, and then watch the ceremony :D I can't wait!!!!!!!!
