So more photos from my late night editing stint. These ones are all coincidentally from our trip to London and our Scandinavian cruise last year.

The age old lie. "To die for one's country is sweet and proper."

Aren't we just so happy?

Who needs sleep?

So one would think that after doing this numerous times that I would learn my lesson maaais non. Anyway so after having a cup of coffee about two hours ago and not being able to sleep since I decided to edit some old photos. There's quite a few so I'll post them in installments and they're pretty random from holidays spanning from three years ago to this year.

Thinking face.

If this was a movie.

So I received an early birthday present from my Australian family and my six year old cousin sent me the cutest/funniest birthday card ever! It's a Hannah Montana card and it sings Life's What You Make It!! It reminded me so much of the scene in Easy A where she receives the Pocket Full of Sunshine card and my reaction was almost identical.

Fishtail Plaits.

Okay for you Americans/British/whoever else doesn't use the term plaits - a plait is a braid. There has been this recent obsession with some of the girls in my class surrounding this and plaiting each other's hair in class. Up until about an hour ago, I hadn't been able to do one but thanks to WikiHow,  I have successfully learnt. My sister was gracious enough to let me use her as a model to perfect it and after about 5 attempts, I managed to do a pretty good fish plait. It's pretty easy to do once you get the hang of it and it's much easier to do if the hair is not layered - if it is you'll have to take the hair from underneath thus including the shorter layers.

The method is pretty easy:

  1. Divide your hair into two large sections, parting it down the middle. 
  2. Pull a thin strand of hair from the outside of the left section and pull it over the top of the left section and grip it under the right section. So over left, under right. 
  3. Do the same with the right side, pulling a thin strand of hair over the right section and under the left section. 
  4. Continue alternating sides weaving over and under until you have reached the end of your plait. 
  5. Tie the end with an elastic and you're good to go. 
Some general tips:
  • Try to use the same thickness for each strand throughout your plait so it doesn't end up looking uneven. 
  • Use thinner strands to make it look more intricate. 
  • It helps if you pull tighter. 
  • If you feel the plait is too tight use your fingers to gently massage into the strands to loosen it slightly. 
  • Just remember - over, under
I took this method from WikiHow and there are pictures which aid the method on the site, they also have an alternate method but that looks more complicated. 

The ideal. 

My fifth and final attempt. 
So at least I can say that I accomplished something today; I learnt how to do a fish plait. Yaysies.

Some Tea Please.

The weather is just perfect to curl up with a cup of tea and a book and do nothing for the rest of the afternoon.

Long Weekend.

So this past long weekend was jam-packed with sightseeing and touristy things with the exchange students. There's no way I'm going to type everything we did so here's a few photos to highlight what we did. It was a really fun but tiring weekend.

Notice the sun's rays in the corner. Cool right? 

Let's get traditional.  
Say cheese.
