Dearest blog readers, farewell.

...for 10 or so days.
I am taking a brief hiatus for about a week and half while I study my ass off.
After this hiatus, I am going to be on a 4-month uni break and I promise that I have the most amazing DIY's planned that you are all going to love, and I'll hopefully be posting other interesting things and outfits near daily. (Also, any sponsors who sent me items to blog about, I will make sure to blog the heck out of the stuff you sent me - it'll just be after the 18th of November. I hope you understand.) Just let me become a crazy study hermit for the next few days. Thank you so much for all your love and support, particularly those of you (you know who you are) who have taken the time to send me super nice personal messages/drawings/fan art/love. You are the best ever.

Here's some of my favourite links/outfits from my corner of blogland from the past few months, to keep your need for anything Pineneedle-related satiated for the next 10 days:

My favourite outfits from recent times (click to see the full blog post):

This fan-art sent to me by lookbooker Bruno Harryson.

My attempts to brainwash inspire you guys with science and the latest addition of a science-related fact to my outfit posts, including this awesome video explaining "Why is it dark at night?"

My DIY rompers (here and here).

My pinterest board full of inspiration for things that I'm going to create after my exams.

And the start of something magical... (this will be the first thing I finish when I am on holidays! DIY tutorial to come.)

(and a sneaky "I'm procrastinating on my study" update on 9 november: this fan art as well. Well, it's too good not to show off here.)
This fan art sent to me by Kat at LookBookIllust.

And I will also leave you with some of my favourite outfits, posts, links and DIYs from around the world:

Besty McCall paper dolls from the 50s - 60s (I have plans to base a bunch of outfit posts around these).

This lookbooker, Shuxi W.

Anything posted by Jessica Celebre from the Tragic Sense.

These magical pictures from the Paulie's Antique lookbook photoshoot by Polly Bland.

One of my favourite bloggers Megan from the Briar Rose wearing new creations from one of my favourite stores, Mod Dolly, as a collaboration with one of my favourite ideas for a website, Sketch Street (this was almost too much, I'm telling you).

See you guys on aroundabouts the 18th of November! Wooowhohowhooo!
