Happy Holidays!

I don't often post photos of "life" things, but today was such a lovely day that I thought I'd share some of the snaps I took. Enjoy, and I hope everyone is having a lovely day! (Or is about to - it's still Christmas eve for my American readers! Make sure you go to bed before Santa gets there!)
Dinosaur jars I made for my boyfriend's sister, re-purposing some old jars and dinosaur toys, following Kitten Bear's awesome DIY.
A whole heap of presents for a very large family!! And our teeeny little Christmas tree (we got the tree too late and so had to settle for something small. I think it's cute though.)
An amazing Christmas breakfast spread, featuring mini pears, dates, mascarpone cheese, pomegranate, mango, cherries, nectarines and peaches. Yuuuum!
Present from my boyfriend's parents - Chemistry mugs!! The nerdiest/coolest gift. Here it's filled with some hot chocolate because it was cold this morning (it's definitely not a typical Australian christmas)/
The present my boyfriend got me! Unfortunately it didn't arrive in the mail in time, so he made me this card of it, featuring Princess Bubblegum - It's a SOLAR SYSTEM MOBILE!!! Hahaha I am so excited for it to arrive :)
And what I got for my boyfriend - a Kindle which I loaded up with a whole bunch of science fiction and David Mitchell's autobiography.
And of course - a snap of the Christmas outfit I decided on! (and OMG my real - and very windblown - hair!) Dress is c/o Koogal, sweater is vintage and shoes are from Asos.


  1. Love the dinosaur jars and oh my gosh look at all those presents! Your outfit is adorable, your natural hair is cute!

  2. Aw it looks like you had a really nice Christmas. Your solar system mobile present is sure to be awesome when it gets to you! I love your outfit too. Such a pretty dress. Your real hair is so adorable too!

  3. I love how more and more of your scientific side is being revealed. Where has it been all this time? I saw those dino-jars, and was like "where do I get them"; now I see how you made them! So cool, and totally do-able. Certainly a possibility for future gift ideas. And as usual, love the outfit, but of course that's a given with you. Merry Christmas!


  4. Proceeded to show family members your dino-jars idea. I think I shall ACTUALLY give it a go over summer, with whatever toys I find in op shops. Yat! <3

    1. awwwwww yay! that sounds like an awesome idea. They are really so effective! I want to make some to store... something... colourful in.
      aw and thanks for showing your family haha :)

  5. Third comment, new record. In response to your comment, I did find they slipped a wee bit, but after a bit of fiddling, they got their grip just fine (the clips I mean). And I am loving my new title of 'lilac fairy'

  6. hi
    merry christmas!!



  7. Your Christmas looks fantastic!
    My boyfriend got me a moon clock! I loved it. I thought you'd appreciate that as a fellow astromaniac!


  8. The solar system mobile made me extremly ejalous. I love the jars DIY. It looks like you had a great christmas ^^

  9. Those dinosaur jars are the coolest! I might have to make those.
