So I guess it's been a good day to reflect, take in the view and make financially prudent choices at every possible opportunity. What a happy coincidence that today was also the weekly shop day too.
I found this lovely khaki beanie at Cotton On for $9.99. I think it's going to be part of my weekend off to market outfit. To go with my uggs and their cardy socks. I can't decide between channelling Alexa Chung or Sienna Miller. Might have to take it to Mr SSG, fashion supervisor of SSG Manor in the 5 minutes before we head out the door to Pyrmont on Saturday morning.
Then I found these tasty salads for dinner at Coles.
|There were generous amounts of chicken and pancetta in the salad.|
They were both pretty tasty for supermarket salad to be honest!
|Real salmon pieces!|
You know how I roll at Ikea, don't you?
I got the 3 picture frames I needed. They're the frame of choice in many a fashionable household, including Blithely Unaware's and She Wore It Well's.
And more tea towels. I'm going to need more now that I'm taking my own tea towels to work for the sake of the environment. I see a big future for personal tea towels. They'll be the next big things after enviro bags and PBA free water bottles.
|All hand washed and ready to go. It was going above and beyond to even attempt taking off the bar code labels. They are amazingly tenacious things.|
And jars for the large collection of tea bags I have at work.
|Bringing Back the Wave with Andew & Claire on Mix106.5 - the bumper sticker. On my fridge rather than on my car. Go figure.|
You know how I was talking about bringing back the wave when driving the other night? Well, I got my official bumper sticker in the post today. Don't ask what its doing on the fridge under my Hawaii magnets and next to a summer post card from Net A Porter. The campaign is working!! I got 2 waves for 2 'letting ins' tonight. In the rain. That's a 100% strike rate. Amazing stuff. Plus other drivers were passing on the love in neighbouring lanes too.
The NAP card was meant to be one of those visual cues for when I opened the fridge too often in search of champagne or the butter rather than the fruit or the yoghurt. I haven't had the heart to disturb the card of my magnets because together they're a lingering reminder of summer on these cold, dark mornings when I have to get breakfast before hitting the wet road to work. And I do grab the youghurt and fruit rather than the bubbles or butter for breakfast. Promise.
