Hi, I'm Jenna.



Now, I must admit, I'm a sucker for a good animal video, hence why I absolutely adore this video. It's the epitome of cute. This cat has taken on the care of a bunny after its mother died.


Pup Pup Puppy.

Mum bought it yesterday for the family and I seriously have to say, not only does it look aesthetically breathtaking, it tastes like heaven. 


Dancing with myself ...



Today's weather has been terrible, thus why as soon as it stopped raining, I decided to take some snaps. A few weeks ago I bought this extremely comfortable jump suit, from the store, Nu & Nan for $50, although it was originally $250. Moreover, I received these beautiful Sportsgirl shoes for my birthday, coupled with the necklace I bought with the money I was given, for $7 (although it was originally $40). I wore this today, although when it got a bit cold, I wore a wonderful wool jacket I bought from an op shop for $20.


Waiting on the world to change.

So, it was my 18th birthday on Friday. 
I still cannot believe it. 
But, I have to admit - I did have a great day. Mum and I went shopping, got Gold Class tickets to Sex and the City 2 (my verdict on the film: mediocre) and 
I was given an Ipod Nano, E71 Nokia Mobile Phone & Case, a lovely Audrey Hepburn mirror, gorgeous shoes, a beautiful Chanel look-a-like bag, John Lennon inspired sunglasses, and, last but definitely not least .... $750! Oooh my Goood. 
So, yesterday I went shopping and bought some lovely high-heels, a Parisian-inspired top and a shirt dress, which is just lovely. 
Oh, and my camera is almost fixed! Woo. 


Don't worry, be happy!

Recently, I've been feeling really down. Y'know, with my High School Certificate coming up in October this year, I've felt that I had no real direction. Today, at my homeschooling department, we had an Amnesty/Harmony Day where we spoke about human rights, and designed cards and paintings to send to the children at the Christmas Island Detention Centre - I even taught the younger kids how to make origami traditional swans and read out a true story of a young African girl who now lives in Australia. And that's when I realised - there are kids out there who have never been educated, and whose parents were killed or arrested for believing in something. I mean, what have I got to worry about? I've lived in Australia my whole life; been educated by absolutely amazing teachers, and, been given a life these people could only dream of. 
I've not only been given the chance to study, but, I've participated in so many extra-curricular activities, which is where my passion for acting developed. 
These children have and will never experience that!
As a result, I've made a pact to stop worrying. It's not only hurting me, but the people who have helped me the most - my family. 
Yeah yeah, you're probably falling asleep reading this, or better yet, logged off my blog to read something else. But, I just thought this was the perfect way to let out all my negative feelings. 
Tomorrow is a brand new day.
I am a brand new person. 
And, hopefully you could let out all your negative feelings and thoughts, because, seriously, there is absolutely nothing to worry about.
Think about the present, not the future or the past. 

Thanks Guys! 



Don't you just adore old films? Well, I know I do!
I mean, there's a special quality these types of films hold, which ultimately, no 21st century film can surpass. I mean, I love the way directors use film-noir, which is very common in films made during the 1940s-50s.
Lately, I've been lucky enough to be given the chance to analyse these old films for my English module work. And ironically, most of these films I've been given the chance to watch star the beautiful, breathtaking and lovable Grace Kelly.

Dial M for Murder.

Rear Window.
I've also developed a passion for Alfred Hitchcock's work. I mean, these two texts truly encapsulate the beauty of films, with the help of some fine actors, of course. And, I guess these 'arty' interpretations, or pet theories of mine, do kind of relate to the fashion world. Both films and fashion both have to be developed basically in the same manner - through creativity; except, directors use film techniques to emulate their creative minds and plots, per se.
Anyway, today has been an extremely boring day. Not only have I completed some Ancient History notes that took me over an hour to write (I was expecting it to take up the whole day), but I have been watching Big Love, whilst eating a huge freakin' easter egg! Ahh crap, you have absolutely no idea how fat I feel.
Y'know how you eat something big and think, 'this is all I'm eating all day' and then two hours later, you grab some lollies or something. That's the negative side of having too much junk food in your pantry. See, every easter my family invites our relatives over, and mum thinks she's expected to buy a whole lot of chocolates, soft drinks, lollies, chips etc etc, however, nobody eats them, which means that we're left with them.
I mean, this would be a seven year olds idea of heaven, but for some, not a teenagers.

On the other hand however, I received my half-yearly school report back, and topped 4/6 classes.


i love this.

I. Heart. Cassie.

1969 - 2010.



I n s p i r a t i o n .

Books I want to read:
  • Girl Power by Marisa Meltzer.
  • Up in the Air by Walter Kirn.

But probably won't due to the gigantic load of year 12 work I received today.

Films I want to see:

  • Inglorious Basterds.
  • Crazy Heart.
  • Precious.
  • Valentine's Day.
  • Rear Window.
  • Manhatten.

Rather instantaneously, I decided to develop a collage that assembled something that relates to INSPIRATION. Not anybody's inspiration, but mine; just things I've seen over the past few months that have inspired me in one way or another (ie. Chanel, Chloe, An Education, vintage etc).
Oh, by the way ..... GO SEE AN EDUCATION. It's truly a formidable film, with sublime performances from Carey Mulligan and Peter Sarsgaard. Absolutely divine.


well, what can I say?




So, I feel like a complete freak. I mean, I haven't been on blogger for what .. 2 months? ARGH! Okay, I wanted to continue blogging last year but my family then unexpectedly decided we'd go to rural Australia to visit some relatives.
We stayed there for a month.
No Internet.
No Magazines.
No Television.
Okay, No Technology.
And believe it or not, I absolutely loved it! Therefore, I decided I'd give blogging a bit of a break whilst I focus on my Year 12 work for this year.
But, I missed it too much!
Therefore, I'm back. FOR GOOD!

Anyway, don't shoot me or anything but...
Yes, I am a fan of her's! She was absolutely spectacular; she even jumped into the crowd to give us all hugs! And no, I'm not exaggerating!
She is such a sublime performer.
And no, I'm not kidding.

Anyway, if she ever comes to your city/country; GO!

Other than that, how has everybody been?
So, recently I've developed a love for oversized blazers; especially those worn by Chloe Sevigny.

I just love Sevigny's minimalistic style. To me, minimalism is so exceedingly fashionable. I just love it. And, it's classic! I mean, look at Coco Chanel or Audrey Hepburn; their simplisty produced feelings of sophistication and worth. In fact, the other day I viewed the film Sabrina starring Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart, and there was this extremely memorable line that really hit me. It went something like, "if you don't find me, i'll be the most sophisticated woman there" courtesy of Audrey Hepburn. And I mean, she looked AHHHMAZING! I was drooling for goodness sake. There was also this scene where Sabrina (Hepburn) was wearing these leggings and a baggy shirt and my mum commented on how similar some of the fashion now is to back in 1954, but this is because MINIMALISM REALLY CANNOT CHANGE COMPLETELY. I mean, it can transform slightly to suit our new modernised century, but altogether, minimalism is style. And as Chanel states, fashion fades only style remains the same. Minimalism is style, not exactly fashion per-se.

So yeah, these are just my personal thoughts as recently brought up during an intense discussion with my mother.
Also, check out French Connection! There new collection is to die for.
