you arrived just in time frankie

having the new copy of frankie magazine in my hands makes me very happy. it's the 30th issue and they have a list of 30 things that they love, so here's my list of 30 things that make me happy, feel free to comment some of your own.

1. my friends, for the hangs, the hugs and they are so good looking. 2. staring at the sky. 3. perspective. 4. baking, anything, all the time, even after a day at work, i still want to bake. 5. pancakes and ice cream, goodness me, delish! 6. irony. 7. rainy sundays when i can just stay in bed for ages and not have to think about work. 8. having a really long, really hot shower and then jumping into bed with clean sheets. 9. having a jug that has a setting that keeps the water hot all the time! green tea in a flash. 10. phone calls with friends in other countries. 11. inside jokes, the kind where you don't even have to finish the joke because everyone involved is already laughing part-way through. 12. conversing with my mother via facebook, especially when she's just down the hallway. 13. re-decorating my walls and feeling totally satisfied with them.. for about a week. 14. hanging polaroids with wooden pegs, oh i love wooden pegs. 15. 'i love' lists, so uplifting haha. 16. generally, lists, i love lists so much, i'm the kind of person that writes things that i've already done on them so i can cross them off. 17. my job, i really do, i love my regular customers, the people i work with, the smell of coffee, baking all day and picking the music we listen to. 18. 'i caught myself' by paramore, i listen to it pretty much every day. 19. john mayer's music, i really do listen to him everyday. without fail. 20. dancing all night and then eating turkish delight. 21. this one boy, that really brightens my day. 22. counting down to things, australia in 25 days. 23. making something really cool from something kinda dumb from the opshop eg. awful blue mum jeans, into acid washed, cut offs to be worn with tights, nice. 24. fluffy towels, not the kind that attack you with their fluff though. 25. turning off the computer and reading. 26. hot water bottles. 27. those 'i haven't seen you in so long, i'm so glad your in my life' hugs. 28. alaska's ep, i mentioned them in an earlier post and truly if you didn't download the album, i reeeally suggest you do! they make beautiful music with harps and violins and goodness me, just check it out and then let me know what you think. 29. talking to my sisters on the phone. 30. writing.

check out for inspiration and prettiness!

lauren joy ness.

"you thought you couldn't live without him. on that very first day the weeks and months stretched ahead of you in infinity. they wrapped around the world, then circled the moon and drifted onwards to the universe. you followed this empty time as it skipped lazily across the sky. it forced you to look up at the stars until you lost yourself in their beauty. suddenly much to your surprise, time stood still as the sun rose and your broken heart was filled with light"

i'm not sure who wrote this, i copied it down in my journal from a blog awhile ago. if anybody knows who to credit this to, let me know.

most beautiful, lauren joy ness, everything will be ok.

you are truly beautiful but so is fools gold..

life is full of really beautiful things, friends, family, music, coffee, photos, adventures. i was abit sick on the weekend, migraines and such but it was beautiful none the less.

i've had the privilege of seeing a band called 'alaska' live twice in the last few weeks, they make such beautiful music and have an ep available for FREE. if you head here i'm pretty sure you will find it!

i go to byron bay in 5 weeks! and to splendour in the grass! this pictures depicts how happy that makes me!

also, it was my niece alyssa's first birthday on the weekend, got to see my sisters, very good.

my sister made that! she is so super talented.

my other amazing sister, she wont let me put this on facebook, but i don't think she reads this heh heh.

aaand, my room is in serious need of some de-cluttering! it's crazy, such a looong process though. one day, one day.. haha.

love and light x

p.s- i think i have an almond stuck in the back of my throat, feels v. weird.

just a minute.. in june

i've decided to join in on 'just a minute'.. head here for the deetz!

Reading... twilight.. starting the saga again, awful i know haha. just finished 'the perks of being a wallflower' by stephen chbosky, and about to start (again, properly) velvet elvis by rob bell.

Watching... not alot to be honest.

Loving... bringing my leather vest out of the closet, recent cute shoes i've found, walking into the kitchen at work each morning to escape the cold!

Cooking... alot of pumpkin with cous cous and brownies. also pancakes.

Wanting... to be in australia on holiday already! more sleep. and perhaps to be a morning person.

down to you,
you're pushing and pulling me down to you
but i don't know what i,
now when i caught myself, i had to stop myself
from saying something that i should have never thought
now when i caught myself, i had to stop myself

you could be happy.

And all the things that I wished I had not said
Are played in loops 'till it's madness in my head

Is it too late to remind you how we were
But not our last days of silence, screaming, blur

Most of what I remember makes me sure
I should have stopped you from walking out the door

You could be happy, I hope you are
You made me happier than I'd been by far

Somehow everything I own smells of you
And for the tiniest moment it's all not true

Do the things that you always wanted to
Without me there to hold you back, don't think, just do

More than anything I want to see you,
Take a glorious bite out of the whole world

Taking the back roads listening to Snow Patrol. Watching the sunset from my room. Drinking homemade lemon, honey and ginger drinks. Tears of release. Being overwhelmed by the beautiful people in my life. Pancakes not for breakfast. Forts made outta sheets. Plugging in those fairy lights. Date scones. Finding the dream shoes. The promises I cling to each day. Hope for tomorrow. my Father.

i can read

Found this sweet website via Cupcakes, Daisies and Sunday Afternoons , called I Can Read

oh sweet girl, you are so precious in the Fathers eyes and to me also!

I would really, really like to do this to the back of my door. Infact, I think I will.

Friend, I will always love you, but your only the person I really know about 15% of the time. The other 85%.. well I just don't know. I miss the real you. Or what was the real you. I'm okay with change when its moving on and growing up, but just becoming, kinda a stink person, it's not so simple to deal with.

That aside, I booked tickets to Brisbane last night, Byron Bay to be more specific. I am so, so excited. A weEk long break sounds like a dream. And I'm borrowing 'The Perks of being a Wallflower" off my friend, I might head off and read that now.

p.s- Check out the use of capital letters etc. here tonight folks, unusual for me.
