jumpsuit culottes | Boohoo denim jacket | Just Jeans dreamcatcher earrings | Shayote
Woah, it's been three weeks since I've posted on here, hasn't it?
Anyway. I'm halfway through my essay for English, but I'm taking a break to come to you with this gorgeous jumpsuit. They're culottes. On a jumpsuit. I think I've died and gone to wide pant legged heaven.
I've been wearing it so much, but it's just a little too dressy to be wearing all the time so I've been chucking a denim jacket and my white converse on to keep things casual. It's sort of become my uniform these past two weeks.
So even though I haven't been around on the blog much, I've been doing a lot for my YouTube channel. Two weeks ago I posted my daily makeup routine, and then a week ago my sister and I went to Costco and we vlogged because we think we're hilarious. I also spent three consecutive days these holidays filming a mad amount of videos so I'd have things ready to post when exams start up, so I'm excited to start editing those soon!
Anyway, I better get back to this damn essay. If anyone has any opinions on how technological advances harm the human race, hit me up.
I promise it won't be so long between posts next time, you all can't get rid of me that easily!
If you've been reading ink dreaming for a really, really long time, you might remember when this blog was called Three Pineapples (lets just take a moment to cringe at the name) and I wrote a review about Lush's Catastrophe Cosmetic fresh face mask, which was my favourite face mask at the time, and still is to this day!
I thought I'd redo the review, because the old one was written, in an interesting way, shall we say, and the formatting was shocking.
Started from the bottom now we hurr.
Every time that I find myself in Lush looking at their gorgeous face masks, I try my hardest to convince myself to try one of the others, because I think that I've only ever tried one other of their fresh face masks! And then I can't help myself but pick up good ol' Catastrophe because I know I love it.
Catastrophe cosmetic is quite thick, as far as face masks go, and almost has a clay like consistency. I personally really like the feeling of this, but I realise that it's definitely not for everyone. It can be a pain to put on because it's just so thick and chunky, however I've discovered that if you add the smallest amount of water, like wet-your-finger-and-mix-that-in, you can make small amounts of the face mask with a thinner, watery, consistency. You wouldn't want to do this with all of it, as you might as well just buy a thinner mask, but I do it if I'm going to be taking photos. For the photos in this post, I applied it as normal, and then mixed the smallest amount of water to do the mask around the edges and under my eyes, just because it has a neater and more uniform look. Mostly I just did it so would look good in the photo, which is really the only thing that adding water to this mask is good for #bloggerlyf
I'll take any excuse to throw on an oversized sweater and put on a face mask, but they just seem even nicer during this time of the year, when stress seems to be a constant emotion, due to the oh-so-lovely (definitely not lovely) upcoming exams.
If you're snowed under with assignments this time of the year too, best of luck to you.
And one last note: Are you all okay? Like, really, are you doing alright? Today's #ruokday here in Aus, where everyone tries to make a point to ask those around them if they're okay, and really listen if they're not. It's okay not to be okay. It's okay to get some extra help. Don't be afraid to reach out to those around you.
I know that I've never met many of you in real life, but I want to stress that you can always talk to me about anything. Obviously I'm not a psychologist or anything like that, but if you just need someone to listen or talk to, I'm here. DM me on Insta (@inkdreaming) or flick me an email (email@example.com). Honestly, I won't bite.
So much love to you all, Ella x

Well, guess who isn't dead? Kind of went MIA for a bit, sorry about that. School has been absolutely wild lately and it's just been breakdown after breakdown, which admittedly, is maybe because I'm procrastinating everything. Which, I mean, like, it's all totally fine, I am most definitely not meant to be studying psych right now.
To ever so slightly change the subject, I've been visiting lots of universities these past few weeks and thinking a lot about what I want to do after school. For the past couple of years I've always wanted to go into psychology, and it was really great knowing what I wanted to do. In saying that, these last few months I've kind of been doubting that decision, which has been a really weird time for me. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do anymore, and somehow I felt really bad, like I was somehow being a traitor to psychology for doubting it as what I wanted to do after school (looking back, I know see how that was ridiculous). It's not about being loyal to any one subject, it's about what you want to do, and what's right for you.
I've found a course at Deakin that seems like a really good fit for me, a double degree in Arts and Commerce. In Arts, I'd major in Psych, and as for Commerce, I'd major in Marketing. It's still a while away, so of course things are going to change and we'll see how everything goes, but for now it's comforting to think I've at least got some kind of plan.
Okay, enough chit chat, lets talk about this gorgeous pinafore! This was shot a good few months ago back when I first got my glasses, but I have been loving this outfit so much this Winter. Pinafore dresses have been a firm love of mine lately, and when paired with a long sleeved top and some tights it's super cozy. They also have some kind of effect on me, where I just walk around thinking 'yep, I'm literally so adorable' when I'm wearing one of these dresses.
You'll be seeing more of me soon hopefully- hope you're all having a wonderful week, Ella xx
