it's that time again! up first is a bunch of brooches i made for myself - i bought the little wood cuts quite cheaply on etsy and then hot glued pin backs on them. probably the easiest thing ever and now i can wear the moon or a pastel mermaid on my collar whenever the mood strikes me! second is a cup of tea and francois sagan's bonjour tristesse and then a pretty violet coloured and scented lip balm i treated myself to for christmas (i've used that excuse a lot lately, i'll be honest). two shots of my dresser when i tidied it up not long ago, a glass of water with fresh orange slices, a heart shaped orange and blueberry friand, my recently acquired dita von teese von follies underwear and the NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS TOUR DATES.
initially they announced two sydney shows and one melbourne show, all of which i'm going to, and then they announced two more sydney shows and i managed to get tickets to one and not the other. however, the one i got a ticket to i have to sell as it's on the same night as my best friend's wedding (and in my excitement i didn't realise - BAD FRIEND) and i have to try and find a ticket to the other one that i missed out on. if i manage to pull all of that together i'll still be going to see them four times and since i'm the maid of honour in the wedding, i can sacrifice that fifth night, haha. #CRAZYFAN
the third photo is of probably THE BEST find i've ever had when it comes to records - the soundtrack to carl sagan's cosmos series on vinyl!!! i couldn't believe my eyes when i saw it. my friend told me about the record fair a couple of days before it and although the area is a bit out of my way and i never normally go there, i didn't have any plans so i decided to take myself out for a special day on my own and found this baby! and the best part is it was only $5, though i would have paid ten times that. also the middle photo in the bottom row is all my other finds from that day - a very successful trip if i do say so myself.
the second row is a selfie sandwiched between more records - nas, wu tang & method man's tical on one side and my present wrapping soundtrack on the other, elvis' christmas songs being a particular highlight this festive season. down the bottom is the weeknd's triolgy on CD only because i LOVE his music so much i had to buy it and because he won't release it on vinyl. i don't even remember the last time i bought a CD apart from this but i loveeeee him so i wanted to give him my money anyway (he originally released the three albums as free mixtapes and then had them remastered and released them on CD with a bonus track on each). did i mention that i love him? anyway, the last photo is of one of my FAVOURITE albums as a teenager that was released on vinyl for the first time. there's only 1500 copies in the world and 500 of them are white, so it's a pretty special thing for me and listening to it brings back so many memories.
above are some cakes and a shot of the legendary refused who i saw live last month. some photos of my little baby boo mr. pricklepants - the third one is of him having a nap on my shoulder (^_^) and the bottom row is the tinsel i used to decorate the office at work and my x-ray from when my pneumonia cleared up/i just liked it!
and finally, christmas lolly displays in department stores, all of my phone cases in the (just over a) year that i've had my iphone, my current one being the hilarious pug. photobooth strips with my three best friends, an outfit, kitty tights and some pretty flowers. and once again if you'd like to follow me on instagram i am littlehenrylee over there too.
i hope you all have a wonderful christmas and new years in case i'm not able to update before then. and if you don't celebrate christmas then i hope you have a wonderful holiday and you get to spend time with people you love no matter what you're doing. :)
