Standing Egg [music post]

This is a music post for those of you who like to explore some new music. Indie band Standing Egg are one of my favorite artists out there. Their style is lighthearted romantic cafe style songs. The music soothes my soul every time I listen to it and calms me when I'm irritated. I don't think there is too much to say as music is really subjective and everyone has different styles.

This is their latest song, featuring Christina Lee - We are not a couple. Enjoy.

Glasshouse Fragrances Candles

Hello dear friends!! I am sorry for my long long absence. I lost interest in updating and felt like it was a pressure to update rather than a desire to update so I decided to stop a while and let my mind explore and create a bit of happiness.

 A little update: I've been learning two languages lately, Chinese (Mandarin) and Japanese. It has been quite a challenge on my brain to process two different languages as the tones and mouth movements are so different. I do find it exciting though, that I can now read some Japanese characters and may be able to figure out what they are saying. The satisfaction really makes up for the hours of memorising.The same goes for Chinese although it is not as exciting because I already have quite a good basic knowledge, although I hope to be able to hold a casual conversation one day in mandarin.I congratulate those of you who have mastered a language that is not your own original tongue as it is a daily learning process.

On other news, I recently bought my first Glasshouse candle. Now if you live in Australia and are a woman between 18 and 45, you will most likely have heard this name come up in your high tea conversations and general chitchats with your girl friends. It is a popular brand name of candles and other luxury goods mostly known for their large candle range and deeeelicious smelling things.
