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.

Life Lately: April

Life Lately: April

What a crazy, whirlwind month April has been! In just four weeks, I've moved interstate and quit my job, and life feels so erratic and so strange at the moment. It's weird how you can be living your life one way and then the next day, you're not. I'm in a really weird headspace about it all right now, but I suppose that's totally normal and it'll take some time adjusting back to life in Perth. I'm looking forward to having all my stuff arrive and having a new bedroom to decorate (my sister took mine when I moved out, so now I'm in her old bedroom), plus once I start working again, I'd really like to buy a new bed and bedside table! New furniture and decorating always makes the hassle of moving more worthwhile, doesn't it?!

I miss Melbourne a lot and I'm not going to lie, April has been a very emotional and a very teary month. Saying goodbye to friends, work colleagues, my housemate's cat (seriously, it breaks my heart not seeing him everyday!) and this amazing city has been so, so hard, and sometimes I wish things were the way they were just two months ago. I just have to keep reminding myself that change is inevitable though and it's the only way to move forward. If I were still in Melbourne, I'd probably be missing Perth right now; I just wish it were possible to live in two cities at once because my heart feels so torn!

Despite all these mixed emotions, April has also been a lot of fun. I made the most out of time left in Melbourne eating good food with good friends (the standouts would have to be the báhn mì in Footscray and the vegan pizza with potato gems, popcorn "chicken", facon, two cheezes and gravy from The Cornish Arms) and went exploring parts of Melbourne I hadn't seen before. One of my favourite things about Melbourne are the places you don't hear about and the hidden gems you can randomly stumble upon in this city. I really want to plan a trip back before the end of the year.

Film and television

Life has been so full on this month, there really wasn't a lot I watched or listened to in April. I'm even so far behind in reading Harry Potter and I miss it so much! I'm skipping my music section this month just because I haven't had the chance to properly chill out for a while. I'm looking forward to listening to the new releases from Future Islands, Real Estate and Goldfrapp though and there are some albums coming out in May that I cannot wait for too.

I only saw one movie this month, The LEGO Batman Movie, which was a lot of fun and really cute. It'll be interesting to see where the LEGO movie franchise goes. I've continued watching Daria this month, though it's been a couple of weeks since I last watched an episode and I can't wait to catch up on the last season of Girls once life settles down a bit.
