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! :)
