The Adventures of a 21 Year Old

I turned 21 this year, on the 17th of February and I finally got this cute digital cam for my birthday which I love. As an up and coming blogger I needed a decent camera in my disposal and this one is awesome. I mean I am in no way a camera guru but anything is better than using my iPhone right!!! That is how I came to own “baby boo” a.k.a. the Nikon Coolpix L320, it has 16.1 Megapixels, 26x Zoom, it’s easy to carry as it fits into all of my bags and most importantly it’s just so damn cute… GOSH, I LOVE IT!!!

Cue some pictures of myself taking a picture of myself and my new camera WITH my new camera, mind blown yet? Lol.

Dresses and Jumpers (we call it a jersey here in South Africa but I just love the British term more) are my all-time favourite outfit combinations and I’ve been trying for so long to make that my official look but it’s kind of difficult because whenever I go shopping I just automatically gravitate towards pants, probably because I never get the dresses I want so I’ve decided that I’m going to start making my own dresses. Hopefully I will be posting them in the near future but for now this lovely retail bought dress will do.

I love this turquoise dress to bits and pieces, I bought it mostly because of the colour but it’s a bit to formal for my style so I try to modify it by dressing it down with other items of clothing and in this case I used my favourite mustard JUMPER which I bought from Cotton On and I love it dearly. It so nice and soft, I would marry it if I could. Weird I know but you’ve never worn my jumper so please don’t judge me. I paired this pair with navy blue stockings and my beige ankle strap-up boots, perfect cold Saturday night outfit.

I don’t know about you but my Saturday nights are always mostly spent watching re-runs of the vampire diaries, web surfing, lots of coffee and reading a kick-ass novels. I love books, I’m a self-proclaimed “Chic Geek”, and I even have PJ’s that say so lol really I do. Currently I’m reading The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Euginides which is quite a departure from my usual supernatural love triangle reading list (yes I am a twilight fan, please don’t hold it against me) but I thought I should try it out because I saw the movie trailer which looked really cool but I refuse to watch any movie based on a book before reading the actual book so I got the book but unfortunately I got the one with the lame looking cover but you know what they say right? Don’t judge a book by its cover. Hahaha…

Any good books you’ve read lately? Any suggestions are highly welcomed. I want to broaden by books barrier, lately I feel like I’m reading the same story with different characters over and over and over again… HELP ME!!!
