Boxing Day Haul

Braving the storm of sale crazed shoppers the day after Christmas has never been my thing, I prefer to either shop from the comfort of my own bed, or (my personal favourite) just sleep. However, after being, unwillingly, dragged to the mall by my family I decided to make the most of the time I had. 
Here are the exploits from my boxing day adventure:


First a simple singlet top from Glassons, this was only $10. I think this will be perfect for hot days at home or the beach because of it's flowy and breezy fabric.



Again from glassons, some comfortable, loose shorts with a really fine gingham print. I made an amateur mistake with these and bought one size too large! They are really comfortable and perfect for summer, and I am sure I will still get use out of them even though they are slightly too big.


Sorry for the poor photography, my camera died right when I was about to take this photo, so I had to improvise with my phone. This is probably my favourite thing from my shopping trip. I am really into ruffles at the moment, and once again this has really gentle, breezy fabric, so it will be perfect for long, hot days.


 The softest blanket ever! I got this from the warehouse for $15. I can add this to my collection of cuddly throws, and expect some good use from it.


Lastly a hat, also from glassons. This, I believe, was not on sale, but I bought it at full price ($20) anyway because although I have not been specifically looking for a sunhat my old one is looking a little worse for wear. 

That is all that I bought on boxing day 2016, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

Christmas Wishlist 2016

Christmas, it's the most wonderful and, for many people, the most stressful time of year. It can be a hectic month spent scrambling around the mall trying to find the perfect present, or it can be a merry month filled with music, food, family, and memories. I generally find it the later, and so even present shopping is enjoyable for me. I love searching for the perfect gift, I love wrapping the gift, and I love watching people open their presents. I almost like giving presents more than I do receiving them, almost.
However, I know for a lot of people that the worst part Christmas is trying to find a gift that someone will really like. To give you some inspiration here is my Christmas wishlist for 2016:




3.Fairy Lights $30








11.Cluse Watch $169


I hope this has inspired you, and helped you to go out there and shop like you mean it!

Queenstown - Winter Wonderland

Just when I thought I had said goodbye to winter, and was fully ready for summer, our trip to Queenstown almost made me change my mind!...
