I'm so overly excited.....I've booked my tickets to Brisbane! I'm officially going to Australia in August! Eeepppp!
Way too many exclamation points used in this paragraph! Ooooops there's another one............I still have a lot of things to get sorted; airport hotels, the flights to Fiji, accommodation while in Fiji, travel insurance etc etc but I'm getting it organised! I have lifts to and from the airport arranged so at least thats two things crossed off my to do list!
In other news I got a little surprise package in the post today which made me feel a lot better. The fabulous Lauren of Lauren Grace Jewellery........
.......sent me this gorgeous thing.....
......I love charm necklaces and this mini bee and green crystal are totally stunning, I can't wait to wear it. The packaging is beautiful and the craftsmanship is amazing. Head over to Lauren's blog and website and check out her fabulous creations. I already have my eye on a silver name necklace and some mini bee earrings!
However I have pretty much 99.9% decided to set myself a shopping ban for one hundred days starting from next payday (28th March). There are a few reasons for this; I've read about a few other bloggers who are doing this recently, I already own sooooooo many things (a lot of which still have the tags on) and I want to save some money. I'm going to set myself some rules to stick to........
- The ban starts on the 28th March and will finish on the 6th July, one hundred whole days!
- No clothes, shoes or jewellery can be bought during the one hundred days
- I can buy toiletries but only once the ones I already have run out
- No take aways or taxis!
- I can buy new books but only when I've finished reading all the ones I've already bought
- There will be one exception to rule 2.......a dress for my birthday outing!
........and I plan on it being this dress.......
Style Me Celeb which I discovered on From Gem With Love's blog (a must read if you don't already have it on your blog list). There are quite a few dresses on the site that I would happily adopt but I shall be limiting myself to only one. I'm thinking the brown dress as my new shoes will go with it very well but then I do love the red one.....ahhhhh decisions decisions!
I'm going to go crawl back into my bed although I am feeling a little better than I was, I hope you have an exciting week ahead of you?
