Biblioklept | BIB-lee-uh-klept | noun;
1. A person who steals books.

As you may remember, last week I mentioned my hair would be changing colour. Et voil à! I am officially a red head. I have been having a little trouble with the Blogger photo limits so I have been using Flickr instead. I don't think it impacts my posts too drastically, but please let me know if you notice a loss of photo quality or any thing else.

Zucchini pasta with Tomato and Basil sauce.


This carb-free pasta is super easy to make, incredibly delicious, and won't leave you feeling guilty and bloated. It is a perfectly refreshing and flavoursome dish to enjoy in the summer heat. This recipe uses a veggie spiralizer which can be purchased from most kitchen and homeware stores.

I have been living off this for almost a week now and I am still not sick of it. For that reason I thought I would share this guilt-free pasta recipe with you.

- 4 med-lrg zucchinis
- 8 med-lrg tomatoes (if using tinned tomatoes skip steps 1 & 2)
- 2 cloves garlic (sliced, diced, or crushed as desired)
- 1 Tsp olive oil
- Basil leaves
- Salt & pepper

1. Using your spiralizer, turn zucchini into long spaghetti-like strands. (if you don't own a spiralizer you can use a peeler to get a similar effect.)
2. Drop zucchini noodles into a pot of boiling water, cook for one minute and drain. (I personally don't do this, I prefer my noodles raw, cool, and crunchy.)

1. Cut a small cross in the base of each tomato, place in a heat-proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Set aside for 5 mins to lift skin.
2. Remove tomatoes from water and allow to cool. Use fingers to peel away skin and crush the tomatoes to a desired consistency.
3. Add olive oil and garlic to a warm pan and cook without browning. Add tomatoes. Bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer.
4. Tear basil leaves into the sauce, add salt & pepper to taste.
5. Serve and enjoy.

Amygdaliform | uh-MIG-duh-luh-fawrm | adjective;
1. Shaped like an almond.

B and I took a recent trip up north. We didn't do much aside from stuffing our faces with local produce and exploring the countryside. These photographs were taken with an old disposable camera I had lying around. They really don't do the beautiful countryside justice.

Disbosom | dis-BOOZ-uhm | verb;
1. To reveal; confess.

I was having a little fun playing around with light and shadows in these photographs. I couldn't decide between the flower crown or the cap, so you get to see both. My hair is almost completely blonde again, but not for long! I will be changing colours in the next week, so get ready for a surprise.

Nictitate | NIK-ti-teyt | verb;
1. To wink.

I know that I promised I would have regular and interesting posts, but work has just been killing me. However, I do have some exciting things on the way. Please don't lose faith. These photos were taken last year and their awesomeness has sadly been overlooked. Meet my baby, Oliver.

Glean | GLEEN | verb;
1. To learn, discover, or find out, usually little by little or slowly.

For me, there has always been an allure in the simplicity of minimalism; I have never been the type to don copious amounts of accessories. Only in the last few years have I come around to the idea of accessories, so I have decided to share a couple of my favourite pieces with you. On a celebratory note, my last exam was yesterday and now I am free (in time and spirit), yay! I guess this means I have no excuse to not have interesting and regular posts.

Splendiferous | splen-DIF-er-uhs | adjective;
1. Magnificent; fine.

Thursday marks the day of my last exam (until next year). I should be studying, instead I am procrastinating and looking through my photo archives. These photographs are from the beginning of the year when my hair was long. I really love that the ball gown and the lighting work together to give off a 'haunted' vibe.

Beatitude | bee-AT-i-tood | noun;
1. Supreme blessedness; exalted happiness.

These photos are still crap quality, sorry. I felt super girly in this dress, it was a bit scary at first but it was a nice change. I found this dress the other week and there was just something reminiscent about it - I can't quite put my finger on it. The best part is it was only $25!

Eidolon | ahy-DOH-luhn | noun;
1. A phantom; apparition.

Happy Halloween! We don't really celebrate Halloween in Australia so here is the closest thing to a costume I could gather, I call it Skeleton-Fairy. It's a bit hard to notice in the photographs, but my hair is now pastel green with lilac roots. I'm not sure if I like it.

Teratoid | TER-uh-toid | adjective;
1. Resembling a monster.

The photos aren't great quality, sorry - but I really love the lighting and the juxtaposition of the neon dress in the dark parking garage. I've been up to some super exciting things lately, I can't wait to share them with you.

Recusant | REK-yuh-zuhnt | adjective;
1. A person who refuses to submit, comply, etc.

I adore how over-exposed and imperfect these photographs are. I also love how terrifically these sunglasses clash with my hair, I feel like a love-child of the 70's and My Little Pony.

Here are some photos from Fridays Journalism Ball. It was so much fun mingling with fellow students and future employers. The free wine took full advantage of me but these photos are from before the night got messy. Hope you all had an amazing weekend!
