I Love Sundays!

Mmmmm… Sunday mornings. I think Sundays are my favourite day of the week, and what a beautiful day it is today! I’m currently sitting in my bed indulging in my latest guilty pleasure… Marmalade on 12 grain toast and a nice cup of Earl Grey tea. Frankly, I’m not sure why I regard that as a guilty pleasure, as it’s pretty damn healthy if you ask me. But there you have it, that’s just how my brain works.

Actually, come to think of it, I’ve had a pretty indulgent weekend. My mom and I have both had rather awful weeks at work and decided to go shopping yesterday. Well… I think I blew most of my week’s pay at Forever New – oops! I’m supposed to be saving for a deposit on a house. However, when you see what I bought, I’m sure you’ll agree that one week’s worth of savings might not necessarily kill my dream ; )

I’ve been looking for pretty, light coloured (read cream or white) high heels for years now, and have never quite found ‘the pair’. You know, the ones that can look oh so girly, while still looking relaxed and sophisticated all at once? Surprisingly hard to find in a white or cream colour! And yet, I walked in and they were practically calling my name… Sigh.

Okay, I could spin you this story about how I needed a new handbag because the neighbour’s dog ran over mine and blah blah blah, but let’s just be honest, it’s pretty amazing isn’t it?

And last but not least, my purse, which my mom has hidden from me until Christmas!! Gorgeous aren't they? Well, I must be off. Have a spot of studying to do for my final exams in November so I can GRADUATE! Woohoo!

Hope you're having a fab weekend y'all and spot you soon

Welcome to my brand new blog! I've always wanted to start one and never quite got around to it, so here goes... I love cupcakes and teacups and pearls and anything Southern . Even though I live in New Zealand, I have a theory that I'm a Southerner at heart trapped in a South African body. Quite a mix, aren't I? I've only just moved here a year ago, so am still exploring my new country.

Either way, I was born with an innate love of anything creative. Be it crafty endeavours or baking and gardening, redecorating and gutting a house, I love anything you can do with your hands! If you're interested in any of these things or have anything you'd like to share, please drop me a line. I'd love to be friends...
