Hey, I'm Tenneil

I live in Perth, Australia, and this is my creative outlet where I blog about beauty, my life and everything in between. I enjoy the '80s, the '90s and anything French, and some of my favourite things in life include music,  film, summer and a nice cup of tea.

If Only I Could Fill My Heart with Love

If Only I Could Fill My Heart with Love

I had a productive day off yesterday. I thoroughly cleaned my room (dusted, vacuumed and mopped!) and purged my wardrobe. I feel so cleansed! It's amazing how good a clean and organised bedroom can make you feel. As much as I love shopping, I hate having a lot of stuff. I don't know, it just makes me feel all blah, so whenever I go clothes shopping, I'll always end up getting rid of something too. It balances out my mind, my wardrobe and even my bank account, haha. I always feel like I can get rid of a lot more clothes, but so far, I've done well. I've listed all the items I want to get rid of on eBay, which you can see here. I'm always adding to it!

I've been really into candles lately. I've started burning my Dusk candle (see a couple of posts below) and mmm, it's smells divine! I'll definitely be purchasing more once I've finished burning this one. I smelt some really nice ones in David Jones, so I may make my next purchase there. I think they're the perfect home accessory for autumn/winter. Not only do they add a lovely fragrance to any room, but also a warm and cosy feel. Plus, they just look really nice.

I took down my outfit post from yesterday because I decided I didn't like it. I need to figure out how to take good photos in low/artificial light. Also, I'm probably going to buy a tripod. Nothing fancy or expensive - just something where I don't have to take annoying ~MySpace~ mirror photos and I've seen some cheap ones on eBay. I also want to buy a remote and new lens too. I've decided to buy a 50mm f/1.8 lens as opposed to the f/1.4, as it's considerably cheaper and is a more rational decision, as photography is only a hobby for me. I think some new photography equipment will inspire me to start taking photos on a more regular basis, which means being creative more often.

I'll leave you with two songs from the 80s I'm currently loving and a video from Coachella. I've been listening to The Cure's Disintegration album a lot lately. I swear, it's perfection.

♪ The Cure - Closedown
♪ The Cars - Drive

Did anyone go to Coachella last weekend? If so, jealous! Ahh, it is my dream to go there one day! Here's a video of Cut Copy opening with Visions from last Friday. I love when they open with Visions! It's the best intro ever and the way it blends into Nobody Lost, Nobody Found is sublime. I'll be seeing them twice next month at Groovin' The Moo in Bunbury and their Perth sideshow. I cannot wait!

Happy Easter!
