New Frocks

After the week I've had, I needed some splurging to lift my spirits. I am always on the lookout for pretty going out dresses, and was pleased to find two that I loved. The blue Tokito dress was $99 with $20 off, it also came in black and I am considering getting that as well as I don't really have any LBD's. I've loved the Witchery Silk Batwing Sleeve Dress since it came out, but didn't want to spend $170 as it is a very light fabric. After seeing it on sale for $97 I decided to grab it. I have a few nights out planned and also a day at the races so both of these dresses will definitely be worn in the next few months.

I hope everybody has an amazing Easter break!

Winter Wishlist

Hello all! Apologies for the irregular posting, I've been so tired & busy lately, and so much is happening! I am in a good place right now, spending a lot of time with my beautiful girlfriends and enjoying life! These last weekends just gone have been amazing! I had the AC/DC concert on Saturday 7th of March, and it was brilliant! I was blown away with the amount of fans in acca dacca shirts, the show, the volume, and the enthusiasm of Brian & Angus! If I had to pick a highlight of the show it would have to be Angus's 10-15 minute guitar solo (he is amazing!) and the last song of the night, 'For those about to rock, we salute you.' The canons going off were awesome, and the fireworks display at the end was the icing on the cake! Unfortunately my camera was being stupid so we only got a few pics on my besties camera.

This weekend just gone I spent with my nana (she is 92 years old). My pop passed away almost 2 years ago, so we try to spend as much time with her as possible so she doesn't feel alone. Although I'm sure it's pretty hard not to feel lonely when you were married for 65 years! On Saturday night I went to Puppetry of the Penis with a girlfriend. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was a hilarious night! I have not laughed so hard in a long time. I really recommend the show for anyone thinking of going for a laugh :) A couple of weekends ago I had a lovely picnic dinner at Kings Park with my friend Nique. We had chicken/rolls/salad for dinner, and chocolate coated sorbet bites for dessert.

A few random pics of the beach a few weekends ago, and some recent purchases!

I am trying super hard to save my pennies these days, so haven't been purchasing as much as I used to. I have put together a Winter Wishlist, and I'm going to attempt to only buy things from my list.

So far I have;
-Country Road black leather gloves
-Warm black trench coat from Target
-Long thick black leggings with zips
-White knit beanie with black bow from Sportsgirl
-Big W 'Boyfriend' blazer
-Navy & cream cardi with gold buttons from Sportsgirl
-Mens hoodies for those cold nights, a bargain at $7 from Target

What I need/want;
-Big warm leopard print scarf. (If anyone knows where I can find a reasonably priced one please let me know!)
-Blue or red trench/coat
-Dark blue or black straight cut jeans & more leggings
-Forever New white beanie with black stud bow
-Ankle booties (I try every year to find cute/comfortable/affordable boots and fail!)

I'm hoping to stop by Witchery on the weekend and pick up a dress & some blouses that are on sale atm. I will report back if I find anything. Friday night I have a picnic planned with my bestie, and Saturday night I have a friends birthday bbq/drinks. On Sunday I'll be relaxing and finishing my book, 'A Song In The Daylight' by Paullina Simons. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! :)

Keeping Busy...

I have been trying to busy myself the last week, and make plans for upcoming weekends. The boyfriend & I decided to end our 6 1/2 year relationship the day before Valentines Day. Luckily V-Day has never been a big thing for us, and this year I was at my first ever festival (Good Vibes!) so I was distracted. I've been surprisingly well, what has helped the most is the amazing support from my family + friends! Since Saturday however I have been spending spending spending! Which needs to come to an end as I'm hoping to save up for a home!

Fashion mags/fresh baked scones & plenty of chocolate are my comfort items.

Some of my recent purchases - Sugar Baby glitter eyeliners, Sportsgirl bow beanie, Equip earrings & wrap bracelet, Cotton On bow back dress + Big W ballet flats & across body bag.

This past weekend I kept busy with spending lots of time with my beautiful friends;
Friday night - San Churros in Leedy & late night shopping with Monique
Saturday - Meeting with a real estate agent in the morning/Cuddly Animal Farm in the afternoon/cocktails/clubbing/dancing/many laughs + Maccas breaky with the girls & heading to bed at sunrise.
Sunday - Nursing a terrible hangover with plenty of sleep, movies & chocolate.

A few photos of the animals from the Cuddly Animal Farm in the Swan Valley.

I have plenty to look forward to in the upcoming weeks;
-AC/DC Concert on the 6th of March!!
-Puppetry of the Penis on the 13th. I have heard this show is hilarious.
-Plenty of long weekends!
-Road trip down south with the girls with wine tours/chocolate factory/beaching/relaxing.
-Picnics/beaching/op shopping/eating out + photo taking
-Lady GaGa concert on 1st April - Hoping I can snag tickets!

Real Life Style Icon

When I am not perusing blogs/lookbooks/magazines, I am checking out trendy ladies' facebook/myspace pages. The beautiful Elena has been a facebook friend of mine for a few years - I randomly discovered her on myspace & was captivated by her stylish photos. I am completely inspired & jealous when I check out her photos. She has kindly allowed me to share with you my favourite outfit pictures from her late 2009 honeymoon in US! 

My absolute fave outfits are the pink Docs & the tie dye jeans! I can't wait for winter!

Unfortunately Elena doesn't have a blog, but if you have any comments or questions please leave them on this post or email me and I will make sure she sees them! :)
