i have a messy head right now. i just got home fRom a weeK of sk11ng. th1$ is a me$$y sent3nce, which r3pres3nts how MANY thing$ i must do tod@y. i feel like i ALWAYS rant on about assessments, and so i have decided not to bore you with deets. i have had a large break because of this, but since then i have also acquired a lot of nice and inspiration objects. things such as pieces of art, moodboards, TEA and one of my favorite things – LETTERS!!!!! i want to talk a bit about penpals, and how great they are. i personally have a few, because i absolutely adore the idea of getting personal letters from people all over the globe. each one has a different story, and are nostalgic and beautiful. i recieved one yesterday, and am in a pr0cess of compiling a response. that reminds me – i have to sew a skirt to send to Thanya in thailand…
so now, i will help you enter the world of snail mail. trust me, it will change your life FOREVER. yes, i may be slightly obsessed, but recieving things in the mail a feeling you will never forget. to actually find penpals, i would recommend using instagram, because there are many posts that assist you. i used @plantimal’s ‘penpal’ post, commented a short paragraph about myself, then looked through the comment stream and found some people who sounded interesting and unique. then i DMed them and asked if they would like to be penpals. simple! to ensure that they aren’t creepy men sitting anonymously behind a screen, i also asked them to send a picture of themselves on the spot. of course, if you do not feel comfortable sharing your address to a stanger, you could maybe write to a cousin in a different country, or a friend. share the love!!
goodies to include in a letter could be:
- a 2-3 page letter (of course!). if you’re paying to send it halfway across the world, you may as well include a little detail!
- some art, maybe photos, something that they can hang up on their wall
- tea (typical Phia!!)
- magazine cutouts
- badges, pins etc.
- small lollies
now, looking over my posts, an updated playlist is very much needed. here are a few songs that i have been jamming out to:
- are you old enough ~ DRAGON
- africa ~ TOTO
- landslide ~ FLEETWOOD MAC
- loving you ~ MINNIE RIPERTON
- gettin’ jiggy wit it ~ WILL SMITH
- suddenly i see ~ KT TUNSTALL
- pocket full of sunshine ~ THE SUPERSTARZ KIDS
- no diggity ~ BLACKSTREET ft. DR DRE + QUEEN PEN
so now onto ze outfit for today. this was inspired by the area that I live in, and is probably something different to what I usually put on my blog. also, you should be very proud of me because me being the loner that i am, i had no one to take photos of me. so i resorted to my next best friend – autotimer. update:: I AM SO SAD because i took SOOOOO may photos especially to make up for lost time, and my STUPID computer isn’t uploading half of them AHHHHH. anyways ahha, enjoy!
