Year 12 Formal - Success

I made it, I completed my education. 14 years of my life were spent dedicated to this single purpose. Pretty much my entire memory is from being in school. If you are wondering why its 14 where I did Kindergarten you were meant to do it for 2 years as we did a week of English then a week of French. Education is important this is the truth.
It may be important but what I am learning is far more important than education is learning to learn, and obtaining knowledge. Knowing how to learn and continuing to learn is a life long commitment. I may have finished school but I am still eager to learn as I hope I am the rest of my life.
I intend and will learn and obtain knowledge today and tomorrow and I will say this tomorrow as well. As many of you know of the common saying 'knowledge is power' it supports in showing the importance that it carry's. My goal was to complete school. Now that I have completed that goal it has adapted into wanting to be successful in life. Everyo…

Christmas tree fruit

Hey everyone xx

Here in Australia it is summer for Christmas so the cozy food doesn't always work, so to anyone who is struggling to find some food that will work in hotter climates. this tree in my own opinion will be a brilliant idea. The kiwi and then any fruit can be used as decorations, to create an aesthetic refreshing treat.

I may have some shorter posts this month as I am trying to produce a bunch of Christmas ones for you all!

The love

Hey all its me again thanks for coming back to my little spot on the internet!

I tend to write in the evenings, its a relaxing thing to do before bed. As I have mentioned before I love writing and I looking back at a little bit that I wrote the other night:

"I play the smile on your face, the sound of your voice the look in your eye,
over and over again on repeat.
The broken record playing in my head
allows me to remember the pure beauty I was graced with.
I see the pureness of your soul. I feel the love you radiate through your skin.
Reminiscing on the way you make me feel loved, I marvel on my luck on how I managed to stumble into your presence.
You are my home,
my safe haven. "

 This reminded me about how far I have come since the start of 2016. How far even him and I have come. We started a relationship, we did a year of distance and now I am back in the city I started. We both finished school. What an adventure, I am truly grateful to have got through distance. To cont…

Who loves the rain?

I am currently sitting in my room. With a blanket wrapped around me, this cool spring evening could have been ruined for many who wanted to spend it out doors. For me its been a lovely evening I enjoy the sound of rain. Listening to it is so relaxing. It is like a massage for my ears it makes my back less sore. It is a lovely feeling to fall asleep to, I understand why people have apps to listen to relaxing sounds on while they fall asleep. I would love to hear what you guys do to fall asleep. Also do you think that the sound of rain is relaxing.

Wandering with a camera

Hola, I have always loved taking photos, always being the person with way to many photos on my phone or device I was using. I used to take photos of half dead roses in my back yard. The may have been half dead but I always tried to make the look their best. Different angles, different lighting. My gosh do I love golden hour (that doesn’t sound right in my head so oops I have have merged two things). I see things and just think wow that would be a brilliant photo. I have always dreamed of owning my own DSLR camera. I even bought the 7+ for the portrait mode, I used to love the photo shoots me and my friend would do after school for our Instagram. Taking photos in cute outfits, so we could have something to post when we wanted. Making them often look candid as we swing on a swing or ride a pretty bike (you know the retro ones, we both had one) those were the good times. Now I am almost always being the camera. Not happy with how I look but also without a friend who will happily just ma…

Writing and blogging passion & kindness

Hey everyone!  Welcome to another random post by yours truly Isabelle!  I just think it is unbelievable how easy writing is for me. I so passionately can write for hours. Plan a novel I dream of writing, writing poetry even or just random pieces of writing that I fill the notebook with beside my bed. For a long time I dreamed of being an author. Of spending my life writing, changing peoples life. Whether I spark something within there mind, ignite a new thought or simply just provide them with an escape from a world they don’t necessarily enjoy at the time. I always wanted to be someone special, to help people. To somehow provide a little happiness in peoples life. 
That in mind I think you can do a lot of that just by being there for people. Being kind to others, be someones friend provide them something they don’t want to escape from. I think that anyone can be a shining light in someones life. Small actions can change the world. You can change someones world. Inspire others to …

Two Helix Piercings!

Hey everyone! 
I got two new piercings, it was a very scary, exciting experience. I had been debating between two helix's, my second lobe piercings or all of them. Then the piercing lady said that they only recommend a max of three piercings so I just got my Helix's. I like that its a little out of the ordinary as most people only have one helix. Anyways I LOVE it, like literally love the piercing. 
They had to stick a needle through and then the earring in which hurt quite a bit. Now it only hurts when I touch is which is great. These are some pictures of it :) 

What do you guys have pierced? Don't forget to follow me :)

The end of a chapter

Hey everyone! I officially have wifi! It sure has been a long time.
Anyways certain aspects of my life are coming to an end. Its bittersweet. Though it is exciting it is rather terrifying not knowing whats next. I am practically finished school only a few more days then assessment is done.  What lays beyond school for me is the question?  I am sure we all are sometimes nervous about the future starting a new job. Going to a new school, taking a step in a new direction to achieve what you want. 
Well I thought I would share a quick list of some ways to calm your nerves (some things are evidently simpler then others):  - a cup of tea - meditation - chewing gum - breathe  -excercise - do something fun  - distract yourself - read a novel -be in the sun - organise yourself -prepare - stretch  - take a bath -go technology free - colouring in  Some of these are great because they release endorphins and other scientific stuff that I don't know 100% so you can't quote me on so yeah. T…

Trend: Squiggle/Wiggly Eyebrows

Hey everyone!

So wiggly eyebrows what do y'all think? It is such a strange trend, I mean it would have happened at some point.
This is such a strange trend that honestly I am not the biggest fan of. The difference between this trend that is interesting is that no one has naturally wavy eyebrows. Where people can more naturally have thin or thick eyebrows. Our having them more clean cut also isn't that weird. This trend though is super crazy. Are people actually wearing this trend in public, I haven't seen it.
If you don't know what I am talking about here are some examples

Traits of Successful People

So you want to be successful? I am going to share some traits of highly successful people that you may want to work on possessing. Some of these traits are:

Read A Lot 
People who are successful tend to be reading all the time. These people are always learning, because they know there is so much more to learn. There is always more you can learn, they know that the competition could be learning more.

Research the Competition 
See what your competition is doing. Learn from other successful people, see what others are doing right and then do that better. Be better then them, be different and be smarter. Know your competition so that you can be one step ahead.

Wake Up Early 
Think about all those hours that you may be sleeping in the morning, that you could be working. Wish you had more hours in the day? Well you probably can, by waking up early. Work more then the competition by waking up early in the morning, don't sleep till noon get up and work!

Get Off Your Butt
Go out and work, get…

Crazy Busy Life

Sometimes life is just truly crazy isn’t it? I mean sometimes I am in a lull waiting for the craziness to begin again. Or maybe some people actually have a steady life where the craziness is spread out. Strangely that has never been what it is like for me. I enjoy it when it is fast paced. It is always exciting.  My life became fast paced from when I visited Canberra, that actual even wasn’t fast paced it was relaxing. I had a lovely time there. I would even say it was perfect. The day I got back though was when we started moving. Slept on the floor of the old house. By the next day we had moved most of the essentials and have been sleeping here since. So now I am back in Brisbane, the end of school and also I have 5 shifts this week. The end of the year is going to be crazy busy. End of year exams, quitting my job, formal, moving, getting a new job and then finally the lull. Though it will be a perfect break. A summer holidays that I look forward too. It will be one of change, lots…

My Productive Day

Hey everyone  This is my productive day of yesterday! 8 am  Wake up get dressed. Eat Breakfast which I had a piece of toast.  I then Showered and did my regular morning routine. 
10 am  After having a pretty slow morning I go to the library to do school. I do school online and do not have wifi at home at the moment. We get it Friday the excitement is real! 
12pm  Take a break from school and talk to my boyfriend on the phone
2pm I finish up school at this time and then I get a snack from the local shop to tied me over till I can cook myself lunch
3:10pm  I make myself a toasted sandwich with Roast Beef, Cheese, Tomato after it was toasted I added lettuce and some mustard. The rest of my afternoon consists of hanging out with my family, working on school work, fixing up my room (it now looks good after the move, who would like to see it?) 
6pm  Have dinner Sang Chao Bao, this was delicious. Then work on the dishes 
6:45pm  Walk the dog in the rain, it is dark by now. I r…

Adventure: Dream World

Hey everyone!
Recently I went to Dreamworld and it was loads of fun. I had not been to a theme park in a while. I went on my first proper roller coaster!
I did learn that I am not really a rides person, I do not really like heights and I hoped to get an adrenaline rush but that did not really happen. I ended up being on rides holding on partially with my eyes closed waiting for it to be over. They have good rides don't get me wrong and who I was with had a a blast. I also think its great for people of all ages with the variety of rides they do have.

The interesting thing is that I really enjoyed the animal aspects of Dreamworld.
They have a Tiger area which I saw the tiger show which was super amazing. I love these things and I would love to work at a zoo doing thins kind of stuff one day. I really love animals and honestly could have spent a long time with the animals.

* I also recently went to Australia zoo (the Irwin one) comment if you would like to hear about that adventure

I am back again!

Where have I been?  Well I guess the fact that I had mentioned previously I was visiting my boyfriends and moving soon would help anyone wondering. 
It has been a while since I have posted almost two weeks maybe even, two weeks by the time I get to some free wifi. It has been an especially long time considering I was posting practically everyday. 
I will not be resuming to post everyday but I will be posting again often. With my usual wide range of posts. I have recently moved house and although the wifi people said we would have wifi when we moved it turns out we do not. Thats always the way isn’t it? Or is it just my luck with wifi?  Does anyone else always have wifi problems when the first move in? 
I miss reading the lovely comments people leave me, and cannot wait to get wifi again!  As always,

Plane Tickets : WanderLust

I am that girl that is always buying plane tickets. It makes sense because I am in a long distance relationship. Going back to the place I know, and lived for the longest I have anywhere else in my life.
Being able to notice every little thing that has changed. It may be an adventure but it doesn't feel like that. I do love to visit don't get me wrong. I long for when I move there in November that then I may be able to spend that money on new adventures, not knowing where I am and being able to just explore. Have fun enjoy the moment.

I wont have to travel to see my boy. So I long for the time when we can travel together or even when I can solo travel. Feeling the travel bug coming on. I think it is a great thing to travel while you are young before a lot of the sucky adult responsibilities kick in. So I cannot wait till I am sharing with you guys more of my crazy, amazing exotic adventures. Seeing the beauty of the world, like Princess Jasmine one the magic carpet.

Until then…

Adventure : Ice Skating

Hey everyone!
Recently I was on a trip to the Gold Coast. I had heaps of fun on this trip.
In this trip we went Ice Skating, I have a decent amount of experience Ice skating so I thought I would be okay. The thing about Ice skating is that it is NOT like riding a bike! Every single time I do it lately I am horrible. I blame this on not having great balance. I still have blisters from this experience.

You may be wondering why I am sharing this experience with you. It is because I want to tell you that is was a lot of fun, the next day I was at Dream World and I was like I want to be Ice skating right now. Even though I fell on my butt a lot I still had so much fun. I made friends and gained a new experience. I was honestly nervous to do this, fall in front of everyone.

That in mind I think everyone should do things out of your comfort zone. It can be as simple as Ice Skating. New experiences build you as a person. Pushing yourself will lead you to achieve great things no one has every …
