For dinner last night, Phillip and I had Fish and Chips; we had been meaning to go to The Chippery in Thorndon for a while, but never got around to it (I work a few blocks away and was going to shout us dinner on Friday night after work, but ended up getting sick and spending most of the week in bed, I was pretty gutted).
So, after cleaning the house, we put an online order through to the Thorndon store, and then headed to New World to do some grocery shopping before picking collecting our order (you can choose the time you want to collect your order, so we weren’t rushing around; we were about 10 minutes early).

I don’t know what it is, I have gone from someone who really didn’t care too much about makeup, to someone who is ‘must buy ALL the things’, it’s become an addiction!
Anyway, it’s been a while since I last did a recent makeup purchases post, and I figured it was about time I did another one and shared my purchases with you. I’m sure that I have forgotten a few things; I’ve managed to get the $20 reward from the Farmer’s Beauty Club three times this year, and I’m hoping it’s because I bought things during the on double points days, and not because I’ve spent a crap tonne (although, I did buy a Clarisonic Mia 2, which hit the reward mark on its own).

Ever since we moved into our apartment, I had wanted to get a new desk; the one I had come with the apartment, and I never felt as if it was mine. Does that sound weird? It served its purpose, sure, it just lacked personality I guess. So at the beginning of the year, my lovely husband bought me a desk from Freedom Furniture, and it’s safe to say that I am in love with it.
After getting the desk, I re-arranged my office and got a few new desk buddies. I love this space so much, and no longer lie in bed curled up as if I’m doing crunches when I’m writing blog posts (anyone else sit like that with their laptop?)
I haven’t done an outfit post in a while; partly because I still feel kind of awkward doing these kinds of posts (I’m definitely not comfortable posting a picture of myself in my swimsuit… yet; so I skipped that week) and partly because jerk-brain is so jerky, and I spent a good part of the last few weeks curled up watching TV not doing much else (I bought a geometric pair of shorts for last week’s prompt, so my heart was there!)
I think I jinxed it when I said I was the happiest I had been in years; because right now I feel like shit (nowhere near as bad as I felt last night/this morning, but still pretty shitty). My head is a whole lot of thoughts and feelings that I can’t seem to articulate, but at the heart of it I’m pretty stressed, and more than a little bummed out. Continue reading →
