My parents also bought me a new phone! I love love love the packaging~ Also have 10GB worth of space for apps, which is beautiful *u* My Samsung S2 only allowed for 2GB and I didn't know I could move to storage space or something until like the day before it broke. TuT;;

Hope everyone had a good Christmas! Oh and just in case, have a happy new year! 

Till next time~

Journal Post #24 - OOTD and other events

Hey everybody! 

It's nearing the end of another year, and it's been shockingly busy these past few months... don't expect it to ease up as I enter year 12. ; _ ; I have a ridiculous amount of products I was going to review but... uh... y-yeah... I will be attempting to go through them! ; u ;

So recently I went to watch the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who! It was quite wonderful :) I went with one of my friends, and my OOTD was Bad Wolf inspired:

I'm wearing: Indie brand dress, Yesstyle cream brogues, Equip necklace and bracelet, Rubi Shoes socks

I also recently won a mask and novel from Formula 10.0.6, which I will review after reading the novel :D

In the last week of school, my group and I decided to do Kris Kringle. Our whole year also did these wonderful "warm and fuzzy notes", where we wrote sweet anons (or non-anon) to each other and put them in paper bags. I feel extremely loved.

My friend got me Lovisa accessories and an amazingly adorable Nutcracker card! It looks gorgeous. :3

Finally, yesterday I went to an event to assist in gift wrapping presents for the less fortunate. It was a rather humbling reminder of how some people face hardships such that gifts are a problem, and it was an honour to assist in wrapping toys and books for children of families (and cosmetics and such for older teens and adults) facing financial problems. I know a lot of people seem to think that "oh if you're poor, you shouldn't have nice things like toys etc" but that's truly an awful way to think, because all people deserve a reminder at Christmas that their lives matter, and that people do care for them. Haha went a bit social justice on you guys! But yeah, I truly believe that, and if any of you get the opportunity to assist your community in such a manner, take the chance! It's a great way to give back, or help others.

In other news, I've also watched season 1 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, started Charmed and am rewatching Primeval. I should be doing work. Or writing reviews. Ah. 

Till next time!
