The little things

Life is full of many goal posts; some to get us through the next week of our life, some are lifelong goals and achievements (which realistically are hard to follow in a strict, linear fashion) and some are goals to make you feel something.

I discovered Hema one late night post-coach journey (it was closed by this time) in Victoria Plaza.

Late October confidence: the Halloween debuts

Over the past few days, I've used Halloween almost as an excuse to channel my artistic impulses. Starting off slowly with make up, the next day being in full cosplay, a much more low-key cosplay a day later and continuing with make up thereafter.
