No-Spend-July

Okay, so I went shopping, again.

Another $300 odd dollars spent.

*shakes head*

So, for all of July I am not going to buy any item of clothing including bras, undies, socks, tees, pjs, shorts, skirts, pants, dresses or shoes. Or accessories!

I think that is almost everything covered.

Wonder how much I can save?

But so I get my fix, I may just post pictures of everything that I have bought *winks*

Feeling Pretty [again]

I've been feeling pretty more often than not lately. It is a nice feeling.

Honestly.

So when the moment hits. I snap some shots.



Because I am slowly learning to love me.

Top: Forever New

Words That Cannot Be Said

I have so many things to tell you all but for some reason I am censoring myself.

I have been on a date. I have met a family. I had a fuck buddy.

And I didn't share any of this with you. I guess I was worried people reading it might think I have moved on too quickly.

Or something.

So, over the next few days I will try and uncensor myself.

I will share all the juicy details.

But right now, I am about to jump into the shower so that I can leave for Forster with my Aunt and cousin.

Because it is my Nan's 80th birthday!

Have a great weekend!

What Was The Best Thing About Your Day?

On twitter tonight Marita from Stuff With Thing asked, "What was the best thing about your day?"

For me it was one of the little boys at work. I will admit that he is definitely my favourite. I know, I shouldn't have favourites but he is and he knows it.

So today I was standing there talking to another staff member about my analytical summaries and he came crawling over at lightning speed and pulled himself up my pants before making his cute little noise telling me he wanted to be picked up.

The best bit is that he gives the best cuddles.

Oh and he is also the one who walked to me a few weeks ago!

So, what was the best thing about your day?

ps. I also published this on We Heart Life.

Getting Nervous

I was due for the pap smear back in May.

It was put off because of my tailbone.

Then when I went to the doctors the other morning for a super quick visit it was really just to get some antibiotics.

I probably won't have time to get there before the first weekend in July.

But now I am getting nervous.

Last time I put it off, I ended up with CIN3.

Seems me and karma have a little battle happening. For some unknown reason. Of course.

Wait, An Exam In Four Days?

Well, apparently my exam is in four days. Not including today of course, 'cause that'd just be silly.

Do you think that I have studied for it?

Hahaha, no.

This was the unit that I left early on that Saturday which resulted in karma coming and biting me in the tailbone. Yeah, remember that?!

So.. Wednesday is the fateful day.

My final exam ever. For this course.

I must pass it, or I don't get to graduate in September and that would kind of suck a little because I am really looking forward to having no more university for a little while.

Wish me luck for that exam on gender and education.

Oh and I probably should go and read some of my mathematics, science and technology postings too. I am *ahem* a couple of weeks behind.

Eeek.

Think of me on Wednesday, please?

Love Weddings

I love weddings. They are fun.

Usually there are tears too, but most of the time they are from happiness.

While I didn't know a lot of people that were at the wedding, besides the ones I had met at the bridal shower, I was still really excited for a lovely event.

I was so not even consumed with taking a photograph, that I forgot to take a photo of my outfit. *facepalm* Or even one of myself!

So after the little church thingy-ma-jiggy [word is escaping me right now]. I snapped this picture once I got into a car before heading back to one of the girls' houses until the reception started.



We then stayed there for the two hours and ate maccas and maltesers. And talked of course. Before heading back to the reception.

I quickly snapped a picture of myself from inside.



Then ran over and snapped the cake because it looked amazing.



I would love to say the cake tasted delicious but because I was wearing those suck-you-in-undies I was unable to finish one entire meal. Let alone sit down comfortably.

Mental note to self: Do not wear the suck-you-in-undies when you have to sit down and try to consume a delicious three course meal.

Aly, the food was DELICIOUS by the way. Excellent choice. Loved my chicken!

Then I ran over to Aly who just happened to find her hubby and quickly snapped a shot of them two.



Before asking Aly for a piccy of the two of us.



I had something in my eye when the Maid of Honour was giving her speech. For some strange reason my eye started to produce a water-like substance.

It was a lovely night and I am so glad that I went, and was invited!

Congrats to you both! xx

ps. These are the only photographs I took during the whole day. My phone was very MIA during the night.

Three Fifty In One Night

Okay, so I will admit right now that I have a small shopping problem.

I went shopping last night, being Wednesday, and spent $350. In two hours.

At seven thirty, I was asked to leave the stores.

I bought a dress, a pair of shoes, stockings, a necklace, a wallet, and an iPhone case.

Hmm. Then tonight, I figured I needed a lighter coloured trench coat. So back I go to the shopping centre.

I bought the EXACT same trench coat that I have at home, except in a lighter colour!

There is another $200 spent tonight. [The trench, a jumper, a necklace, a hairpiece and some makeup.]

I haven't even bought the wedding present yet! Eek!

A Not-So-Perfect Shopping Experience

I ordered from ASOS both the UK and USA stores.

Just quietly I am in love with my gumboots [from the UK]. The three dresses I received not so much. The quality just isn't what I expected.

But I hadn't given up on shopping online. I love it.

So when I heard that Topshop had FREE international delivery I jumped at the chance.

I found the perfect little black dress for forty pounds and even got some makeup. It was going to be the dress that I would wear to Aly's wedding this weekend.

I ordered that on the 19th of May.

Pity it has not arrived.

I have emailed [and am about to email again!] and received no reply.

I am far from happy and honestly don't think I will purchase online, ever again.

So thankyou Topshop for totally ruining my shopping experience.

Not too happy.

So now, I am searching for a dress to buy. Fingers crossed Portmans or Forever New have something cute and wearable to a wedding.

Because I have officially lost too much weight to fit into my old little black dress.

Being Single

If you had asked me back at the beginning of the year, if I saw myself ending up single in April I probably would of shook my head and said never.

Because I thought what I had with my ex was it. Was perfect.

But after everything that happened with his sister where she was a bitch. But realistically, we all knew that she was a bitch before that. A moment where I needed his support the most which would end that perfect bubble.

Burst it and it was gone.

I have met a few guys since then.

They have all surprised me. Some not for good reasons, but really why should I waste my time and effort by blogging about them? [I shouldn't, so I won't. Plus they know that they are arseholes.]

But this morning, after one ah-mah-zing night, I realised that I like being single and I don't need a guy to make me happy*.

'Cause I already am happy!

* Some can make me smile a lot though.

My House

Everything has finally made its way to my house. Everything.

Every item of clothing.

Every book I have read. Or flicked through in the case of my university textbooks.

Every photograph taken, before digital cameras were all you bought.

Every memory.

It's now in boxes in my living room/bedroom/kitchen.

Time to unpack and make my little place my home.

Dating

I have this urge to go on a date.

Like the opening of my car door date. But not really.

I'm not into that type of date.

Sweep me off my feet with laughter instead.

Anyway, so yes. I want to go on a date. A proper date.

Not a "hangout".

Because I think date nights are very needed. In any relationship!
