Much Needed Splurging

Last week was a stressful one for me with work. I decided to splurge without feeling guity. Here's some of the goodies I picked up. Al the clothing is from Sportsgirl - black leggings with zips up the back, blue singlet, blue tie dye top with sheer & beaded back, tie dye top with gold sequin straps. I went a bit crazy with accessories, they are from Diva/Sportsgirl/Live etc. I also picked up the fake Chanel earrings for only $15. I know how some people feel about fakes, but I have the real Chanel CC earrings which were a pretty penny, and a crystal fell out :( So I don't like wearing them except for special occasions, so the cheapies are great for a night out & I don't have to worry if I lose them.

On the Sunday my brother & I had friends over for a bbq & drinks. Was a great night! I love long weekends. I made yummy daquiris & the best punch. Looking forward to this weekend, need to do a bit more shopping & on Sunday I'm doing the Twilight Breast Cancer walk. We do a 4km walk, then watch an outdoor movie & picnic in the park. Sounds like a perfect Sunday! :)

Road Trip

I'm finding it so difficult to find things to blog about, or find the time to sit down & post on my blog. My new job is very tiring, especially with the extra travel & longer days. 2 weeks ago, the boy & I decided to take a long weekend & head down south to beautiful Bunker Bay. We had 3 of the most relaxing days, ate some delicious food, drank some amazing cocktails, & took in the stunning views. We stayed at the lovely Quay West Resort Bunker Bay. It was a little pricey at prices from $209 a night, but I think it was worth it. The villa was huge & very modern, the resort was well looked after & had lots to offer, & the restaurant & bar served the yummiest food!

We couldn't resist a trip to the animal farm again, although a lot of the animals seemed to be tired, or sick :( At the resort restaurant - Other Side of the Moon - we had the best dinner! I had a cajun chicken burger & my boyfriend had a steak sandwich. Topped off with an Aero cocktails (which actually tasted like the Aero chocolate bar) it was one of the best meals I've ever had. On our last day down south with went to Duckstein Brewery & had another delicious meal - I had mozarella stuffed chicken with pancetta & roasted potatos, & the boy had steak on a bed of creamy mash.

I've picked only a selected amount of photos & they take a while to upload. Click them to see full size images.

I will make more of an effort to post more regularly, especially now the weather is getting better & I'm getting out & taking more photos :)

I hope everyone is having a great week, & looking forward to the weekend! xx

More Recent Purchases

After getting some awesome news about my new job (a payrise!) I decided to treat myself to a few things I had my eye on. This Bardot dress & blouse caught my eye online, but I wanted to see them irl before I bought them. They are both beautiful items, and well priced as well!

Last weekend I went to town with the boy to pick up a bag I had my eye on in Country Road. This red patent wallet stood out at the check outs, so I added this to my collection.

I am now the proud owner of the Evie Sling Bag! This bag is truly gorgeous, soft leather, comfortable to wear, zips everywhere & plenty of space! I love big bags!

I am also a Lush convert after I spotted this glitter filled soap as I was walking by. It has a delicious citrust/fruity smell & tiny gold glitter through out, which will look fantastic with lightly bronzed skin this spring/summer. The sweetie pie shower jelly was so much fun to poke & play with, I had to pick up a small tub. I can't describe this smell, but it's yummy!

I was on the lookout for some new nailpolishes & had seen some pretty spring colours from Revlon. 3 of these shades came in a little zipper bag, & they smell like berries when they dry! The smelly shades are - Not So Blue-berry, Raspberry Rapture, Passionate Fruit (which is on my nails in the last pic) & then the other 2 shades are Pink Orchid & Plum Attraction.

I spotted this Sportsgirl maxi in the shops the other night, but had to resist as it's $170 :( I'm hoping this beauty will be mine after pay day before they sell out. I love maxis & pastels will be beautiful in Spring :)

I've got a post coming up tomorrow with some pictures I took today. I hope everyone has a lovely weekend! :)
