So Mod Right Now

What a difference a haircut makes! I blogged about this dress in early 2011, but I wasn't really happy with how my hair worked with it at the time. With my newly cropped hair, I feel much more authentically mod (plus my skills with the graphic lined eye have improved!)

The original outfit versus today's - you can tell I've put on weight since then (sob) but I much prefer the styling I've done for the latter! You can also see how my collection of books/dvds/knick knacks has exploded over the course of a year!

It's not perfect but I love the look of the graphic, mod eye. I'm not sure if people are interested in a product breakdown, but here goes:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
NYX Eyeshadow Base in White
Illamasqua Pigment in Breathe
Illamasqua Pigment in Zeitegist
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Perversion
Maybelline False Lash Mascara

So what's been going on in my life lately? AKA what excuses do I have for not keeping a regular posting schedule...
I've been working full time! Getting up at 6:30 and returning home at 7:30 I've had no time to take proper photos... I only got this done because today is a public holiday!
I have to get my license before my learner's permit runs out! Bye bye weekends, hello endless hours spend in the car with parentals trying not to hit pedestrians...
I was accepted into my goal course - Honours in Psychology at Melbourne University! I'm so psyched (zing) to have made it this far. Just one more step on the road towards my dream career!

I spend all day in front of a computer at work so lately the net has been the last thing I want to do when I get home - additionally, I've been trying to use my free time constructively so I'm going to take up running, German and ukulele! I can play (haltingly) my first real song, so perhaps in the future I'll put up some youtube videos? Let me know in the comments if that is something you'd like to see!

Hope you enjoyed this brief check-in, and for those in the Antipodes I hope you're having a happy Australia Day!

Gosh I am so sorry it took me so long to draw this - with juggling a new job and study applications I completely lost track!

Without any further ado, I'll announce the winner - randomly selected by my boyfriend.
