float on-christmas vacation in photos

1. baked german cookies with Kay-there kind of like an almondy butter cookie, very yummy ;)
2. had a lovely christmas with my family, and was lucky to recieve tons of art supplies, some street style books and a pair of toms, among other things 
3. spent an awful lot of time snuggling with my kittyyy
4. went on a coffee date with a couple of friends, including  kay, lysh(pictured below), and rory, who's recently started a beauty blog called "eye of the beholder"; we spent hours swapping stories and planning her blog 
5. had a new year's party(here with lysh), where I took crazy photos and wore my fiesta shirt. 

I can't believe that break's already over! As well as the things mentioned above, I finished my university/college portfolios (except for one), cleaned my whole room top to bottom, worked worked worked, and set off every metal detector during a recent mall trip (gah!)  How did you spend your winter break?
thanks to all who followed me, four followers is off to a great start! Flow Disruption, Ashley, Halcyon, and Josie-you guys are great :)

hope everyone has a great week and weekend :) xx shay

  4. Thank you for the comment on my blog.
    Well, I spent my winter break sleeping and going out and catching up with my reading for the most part. And eating. Sometimes I think that Christmas is an excuse to buy each other presents and to make lots of lovely and yum food - I say we do them more often!
    Also, that cat is gorgerous.

  5. I'm back to college on Monday - can't believe my holiday's over either :( Your cat is so cute! I followed <3
