Day 06 - Superhero...

I am not much of a superhero follower...but I if I was to choose a favourite, it would be Wonder Woman!
My googling has told me that she has superhuman strength, flight, super-speed and super-stamina. She also possesses a lasso of truth, indestructible bracelets and an invisible airplane.  So I think she is pretty awesome and can take down any villain in her path.

Day 05 - Picture of somewhere I have been to...



My most recent travel was to Lake Tahoe, California, America with my friend Tenielle...It was actually my home for a little over three months. I worked there throughout their amazing winter as a Ski Instructor. It was fabulous and I absolutely loved having a white Christmas.


Here are a few more photos from my trip...I would totally love to go back again as it such a beautiful place!
 some of my favourite little skiers!
I even learnt how to snowboard.

Locket and Necklace Love...

I have been on the hunt for a pocket watch locket necklace...these are a few I found on Etsy at the lunashineshine shop

Other necklaces I love that she is selling...

Day 04 - bad habit...

Haha easy decision...I am a HUGE procrastinator!


I am the type of person who would much rather be frolicking outside, reading a book, watching a movie or pretty much anything other than the task that has to be done... mostly related to study and any work that I want to avoid. So much so that I will avoid doing my washing till I pretty much have minimal clean clothes and have to wash as well as getting up at 4am some morning to do a little extra study to make sure that I am prepared for the exam.


Wouldn't it be so much easier just to get it over with in the first place.

Sunny Saturday Picnics...

Some pictures from my weekend - picnic at wellington point with some cricket, skating, walks along the jetty and playing in the playground...can't ask for much more than good food, good friends and sunny saturday picnics!

Day 02- meaning of my blog...

Creative Colourful Musings was inspired by 101 things in 1001 days list, as blogging was one of the things on my list. But I wanted this blog to reflect a little bit of me and how I think the world is beautiful, colourful and inspiring as well as the things that make me smile ... the musings of my life.


  

Camera Love..

Today has been the most exciting day! My parentals said they were buying me a new camera for my birthday and today I got it!! It is a canon 550D and it is amazing and beautiful and I love it!!!




It is a well know fact that when you get a new toy you open it up right away and play with it...SO I DID!! Here are some of the pictures I took this afternoon around the farm where I live, with my NEW camera!

...

Well the beginning of my holidays has not been that eventful! But I have currently been making up for lost time while I was at uni including;
watching... Grey's Anatomy and 90210, I have been trying to catch up on TV series that I was unable to watch during the treacherous exam study.
eating... I have just finished making a chicken curry for dinner and it smells and hopefully tastes delicious. 
reading... I never use to be a big reader but in the past three days I have finished three books from the Vampire Diaries series, as I am totally hooked on the TV show, and have started my fourth book which is Harry Potter. I was inspired after watching the movie... ps. I love Ron Weasley.
listening to... a new playlist I have made on my Ipod which includes Regina Spektor,  Kate Nash, Natasha Bedingfield and James Morrison just to name a few. 
excited about... painting the wall in my room so that it is a chalkboard and I can draw and write what ever I want on it.

Blogging Beginnings!

I have always wanted to start my own blog and share all the fun, exciting, creative and colourful things  within my life that makes me happy. Given my three month long holiday from university, what a better way to share and document the musings of my summer ... hence Creative Colourful Musings of Life is born. This is my first blogging attempt, so I have no idea exactly where it will be directed, but if you love op shopping, homemade sewing treasures, fun trips to the market, good books and adventures to new and exciting places then stay tuned!
