Brights & Unif + MARTAN on Android + Christmas! + Summer lovin

The lead up to Christmas was crazy cray. 

The weather started to heat up with the holiday spirit.
I must say it I found myself feeling very nostalgic about the holidays, last year I was in Ireland enjoying a nice White Christmas.
Now in 2011 I'm back in Melbourne with the humidity, though the weather managed to offer some white with hail the size of marbles.
I spent my Christmas with the family, recharging and relaxing. Sounds simple and maybe boring, but it was amazing just to sit back and relax, no obligations or tasks.

I managed to sneak in a coffee date or two, dinner and some window shopping throughout the week. 
I was gutted to find that I've changed sizes which was torture when finding a blazer which I thought was my size only to find that it was too big. Oh the drama. 
I also picked up some new work shoes, opting for flat faux suede boots. Breaking them in has been hell for my feet, but they do look good.. fair trade.

I've recently been reorganizing and de-cluttering my life. 
It was funny/interesting to open boxes of stuff and thinking 'what the hell was I thinking' Safe to say I culled a lot of items. From random ornaments to dare I say clothes.. well I did donate them. Everything I have now I'll either wear, use or love love love. 
There is something therapeutic about streamlining everything. It also helps make room for future purchases!

When looking back on the year there are times where I think 'what did I do?' or 'what happened?'
Once things are accomplished I try and move on and forward, following the notion that you are only as good as your last post or achievement. 
Looking back on the year and the things that I've seen, experienced and the people I've met I'm humbled at my progress as a blogger and a young person trying to find a place in this big world. 
Sometimes we get caught up with where we are and where we came from.
