Weekly Catchup

Well nothing really that new to report here. Just thought I should pop my head in to prove I still love you! 

Most of my time is being consumed with research and budgeting for my trip to Melbourne/NYC and also trying to find a place to move into once I get back. Talk about a few things to do!!! Oh, plus I'm avoiding all forms of socialising since I'm on a spending lock down for my trip.

I have been a bit naughty though. I did make some purchases last Friday that I had to have before the disappeared. This shop I like has a million and one things arriving every second but they always sell out within days if not hours. I have to buy it when I see it otherwise they won't have it tomorrow. Especially in my size!

Aren't they adorable? They're military inspired and I'm just a sucker for anything in this style. I've always wanted harem pants too! Sorry the colours are a bit off, hate night time photography with weird lighting. Never looks right. Well at least I haven't quite learned how to make it right in any case.

I also found some shoes that were perfect for work. I've been basic, closed toed black pumpless for a while now and whilst it doesn't seem like that big of a deal, I have to really think about which shoes I want to wear in the morning because I'm missing my go to black pumps since they fell apart. These are the PERFECT solution and whilst not being from the house of my favourite designer, (guess who?) they are Italian and have a leather upper, innersole and lining. The best part? I was prepared to pay a great deal of money on my fave designer's shoes in plain black but I got these for a bare $100 AUD on sale!! SCORE! I know I shouldn't be spending the money but come on, how could I refuse such a good deal fr something that I'll wear every second day if not almost every day?

Here's some of the food I've been having in the last week....

Lamb and barley soup with sourdough

Thick home made (by me of course! :P ) pumpkin soup with sourdough

Salmon with frozen veges - my lazy, I-don't-want-to-cook dinner

I've decided for my own good I need to start eating regular and healthy meals again. It's been so-so for the last few months and I think that's why I feel fat. Duh! I started with a ham and cheese roll yesterday and it was soooo good!

See that beautiful freshly made roll? It's absolutely delicious and whilst I don't normally like sandwiches for lunch because they remind me of school, I really loved this roll. It had a great flavour and a bit of crunch!

Today: banana & honey yoghurt with oats, handful of natural chicken flavoured rice & corn crackers, small banana, 2 small macadamia & white chocolate cookies (had to sneak in a sweet treat!) and salmon & veges for dinner.

Hopefully I can keep that good eating rolling! Stay tuned to see whether I succeed or fail miserably.

Okie dokie, gotta get back to my researching. Catch y'all later! xo
