By The Sea

I have finally resolved to taking real photos of my tetris parties.

With one more exam to go before I finish my first degree (#celebrationemoji), and with 2014 just around the corner (please tell me how this happened), I have resolved to taking real photos of my tetris parties over at Instagram so that a) I don’t have to go insane trying to fit in all my product tags within the app (linking everything here will make your shopping that much easier), and b) my favourites don’t end up miserably grainy when shared on Shine By Three.

This weekend is much more about daydreaming than any actual seaside frolicking – I’m buried in books, for one, but fortunately, Sydney is miserably grey, so I’m not missing out on too much (except the Polo, it would seem). No matter – Tyler the Creator and Darius are doing a great job of counting down to steamy Thailand!

Five more sleeps.

Meanwhile, I find it amusing that this little arrangement of my current go-to beauty products is a hilarious representation of what it takes to look ‘natural’, which we touched on in our discussion on tanned Asians. As a lot of you expressed, the irony of effortless perfection appears to be just as unattainable as smokey-eyed glamour, though I would argue that the former wholly constitutes looking after one’s skin (I really should have sunscreen in this mixed bag).

But then I don’t wear much makeup…

Thoughts? Considerations?

Vent your spleen.

And now, I’m going to procrasti-bake a pizza.
