Welcome to Thursday lovely readers!
Hope you’ve got a stack of the week’s loves to share today (I do love to hear them). Here are my favourite things this week (sung in a Julie Andrews/Sound of Music style). ; )
Patterns on delicious coffee. Don’t you love it when your barista makes a real effort and puts a beautiful fern or heart-shaped pattern on your coffee? I do, and this happened to me on Tuesday at breakfast. Awesome.
Celebrating monthly anniversaries. T and I try to go out for dinner or do something special on our monthly anniversaries. People scoff but I think it’s great. This week was a fabulous Italian meal at one of our favourite St Kilda restaurants, Rococco.
Taking time out. Today, at the end of my lunchbreak, I put one of my old favourite songs by Jewel on my iPod and closed my eyes. I just sat there in the foyer of my building, trying to clear my head and just breathe – something I should definitely do more often.
New dress. Unfortunately this love point is in jeopardy. I bought this gorgeous dress online and then 2 days later received an email that it is unavailable. I’m hoping they can track one down for me as I had my heart set on wearing this to my boyfriend’s 25th birthday in early June. *sigh* We’ll see…
Twitterati polls. I love my Twitter friends and all the immediate help they dish out. I was unsure if I should buy said dress above due to my need for serious saving, but they convinced me that it was well worth the investment.
Other: Headbands, bright prints amongst the Melbourne sea of black clothing, yum cha in great company, kiwifruit, Mad Men, clients that wear hilariously loud ties, buying bargain clothing that doesn’t need ironing for our trip & long sparkly earrings.
