And also...

Dress Dorothy Perkins...been wanting the perfect black and white peter pan collared dress - bargain!

More purchases...

A few pics of things I bought on the weekend in Melbourne...

Portmans leather skirt - I wanted this when it was $150, and I scored the last one in my size for $48

Dotti Khaki coat - down to $48

Dotti polka dot midi skirt - I just love this one

Forever New leopard knit dress

I also bought a Karen Millen top - will take a photo of it later.

Mummy dearest

After a whirlwind weekend in Melbourne, my mother has come to visit me in Wagga. Which is lovely.
I spent waaaaay too much in Melbourne, pics to come.

Diplomatic immunity

I got incredibly lost again in Canberra trying to find my hotel. Why does everything go in circles?

Bought this Asos dress...

My breakfast in a cup....

Where to go?

Well, obviously I am about to leave for Canberra.
Still waiting to hear back about our offer. Blurgh.

At least I look awake. Ish.

Still deciding on where to go on holiday - cheap, good food - Malacca Malaysia?



I am not a terribly beachy person. I just want to be able to see some sights, maybe do a little shopping, and EAT.

On the breadline

So, we make an offer on a house today. The thought scares me a bit, mainly because I am committing to buying two houses (which is a lot of debt!), and I am not looking forward to a couple of lean years cutting back on shopping and travel (no vietnam holiday this xmas:( ). But the house is wonderful - so much potential, and the most amazing original features. The owners have done some awful paintwork!

Love the fireplace

Sunshine on a cloudy day

My new Asos yellow satchel arrived...and it is definitely love;)

My shopping ban is not working, so I think I might give myself a $35 budget per week to spend instead. I need to be able to buy one cheap item per week (or save for a couple of weeks for something better). Not sure on the exact amount though....

Asos satchel, Zara top and blazer, RMK boots, Nudie jeans

So bright!

Shopping Ban broken...sigh

Forgive me for I have soul needed new soles. Damn you Tony Bianco sale! 3 pairs of shoes for $108.00.

To bed, to sleep, to dream

After all the travel, I am just so tired now I want to lay down and sleep. Sadly, I cannot. Tonight I am running a workshop so I won't be home til at least 8:30pm. Which for me is close to bed time. Sigh. Plus - first assignment due in a week, and since I am in Canberra and Melbourne next week, no time to do it except this weekend.

It ain't easy...this green thing

About to leave for Bathurst and Orange...ah the joys of driving.

New Sportsgirl cuff - $10

Zara jumper, ZP skirt,Asos blouse

So pretty

Asos spot stockings

Shoes and noodles

Who needs food when you can have shoes? (kidding!). But I did manage to make my weekly purchase out of my food budget.

Sadly, my ipad has gone by the wayside - all the money I had saved has gone on vet bills. $1700 in the past month (eep!). Still, my kitty means more to me than any crappy electronic device. And you never know - Xmas is not that far away:)

We looked at a few houses on Saturday - some beautiful old homes. Needless to say, there were many arguments along the way. The Boy fell in love with the first one we saw (I did too, but I am trying to be completely objective). Fingers crossed it can all be worked into the finances!
Asos Prissy T-Bar heels - great for walking distances

Asos pleated knit skirt - love the blue (hope it's a smidge longer on me)

Twisted and turned

I am yearning at the moment to return home to Adelaide for a visit - it's been 6 months and I am ready to hang with my girlfriends again. I am feeling very isolated here, especially with the Boy gone all week.

But the good news is that we are thinking about buying a house here, which will be wonderful. I am so over renting. So many lovely houses here to buy. Although this means I have to work even harder on making friends here so I actually have someone to hang out with on a weeknight!

Pieces dragonfly scarf

Modcloth pleated skirt, Dotti top

I love my dragonflies

I finally got Austar..woohoo! Trash tv here I come

I watched a whole season of Spirited in two nights...waiting for season 2 impatiently

Also watching season 1 of Offspring. I like it so far - although not as much as Spirited.
