bonjour & merci

I'm back!

Well I've officially been back from my retreat since last Wednesday but I only had time to update now.

Retreat was crazy fun. Some activities were of course lame, and free-time rules of not being able to stay inside our cabins were damn ridiculous. And it's laughable how teachers still attempt to bring everyone closer together when people just don't like each other, they haven't for 6 years and they're not about to become the best of friends within three days lol.

Oh we got to take our big year twelve photo, quite emotional when you think about it,
it's our second last photo as a grade.

Ahh isn't Collaroy beach beautiful.
It's still looks the same from staying there for camp back in '05 & '06.

Of course, like any camp, there had to be mischieve involved.
The fellow ladies and myself had a fair share of pranks that will be left in secrecy until further announced. Believe me, I'd love to share it with you all but until we give the heads up to the pranked victim, everything remains in confidentiality.

On the other hand, few more photos...

Oh and I almost forgot, thank you to dear
Ali of Baby, I'm Gonna Leave You and Ashita of Les Nymphs who have coincidentially awarded me with this baby, thank you both!

I pass this treasure on to these wonderful blog sites and their talented authors:
(of course, in no particular order)
Fashion Falsehood
Les Nymphs
Baby, I'm Gonna Leave You
Miss Chico

Manhattan Blair
Modern Fuerza
En Vanité

Also, a quick shout-out to my fellow readers,
who have stuck by me even when I fail to update the site.
Thank you for acknowledging my existence in the colossal blogworld!
I heart you all.

these pictures are really lovely :) they seem somewhat nostalgic, which isn't that weird when this was your last trip as a class - if I understood correctly?

Looks like you had a grand time at the retreat. Marie Antionette is a great movie. Not much conversation in it though, but Sophia Coppola, the director, is extremely good on the details and keeping the style of the era. You should really watch it sometime. ;)
