Just a quick post to let everyone who stumbles upon my little blog know that I am making a change over Blogger, and will now be doing the majority of my blogging at http://icametomakeabang.blogspot.com !
I would love if you would add my new blog to your bookmarks, update your blog rolls, follow me with Google connect and come pay my new page a visit.
I guess I will keep this page up and running for the purposes of reblogging pics of hot babes and other interesting things.
I wonder if I can figure out how to put my old posts up on my new site. HAHAHAAH UNLIKELY!
Before I begin I’d just like to take a moment to cast shame upon myself for caving in on my savings efforts when I was going so well! Shame on you Gillian! SHAME!
When it gets close to the weekend my weak side comes out to play, because I stare at my clothes and think, I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR! NOTHING! How this is possible I don’t know, I have some sort of problem where once I buy something and wear it once I instantly dislike it.
Leather Shorts from Forever New.
They were a slight squeeze to get into but I like them once they are on! Total impulse buy. They have hidden zip panels on both sides which helps. Could I possibly wear these to Future Music Festival next month?
I tried on the camel coat too, very warm but not sure it looked that great on me? I really need some great WARM coats for this winter so I am on the hunt !
Forever New Feather Earrings
I had a thing for feathers today, I don’t like the little bows though so will take them off.
Sportsgirl ‘Mia’ Platform Wedges
Have looked at these shoes the last few times I have been in Sportsgirl and I finally tried them on today. Cute! I love high wedges, it is like the best if both worlds when you get height with comfort!
Sportsgirl New Shia Wedge Boot
Perhaps these will help me get through the winter without suffering from frozen toes? I certainly hope so!
Sportsgirl Feather & Chain Necklace
Love love love! Feathers look a little more purple in real life. Told you I had a thing for feathers today!
Perhaps I will try do some outfit posts soon? Hmmmm…..
Whats everyone up to this weekend?
T is taking me to a greek resteraunt that I have been wanting to visit to for ages tonight in Petersham, heading out to the city for a friends birthday tomorrow night, driving down to Goulburn on Sunday and fitting in the usual gym/coffee/cleaning in between. Busy busy!
Yesterday was not only a good day, it was a perfect day.
I made an effort to get up a little earlier so I wouldn’t be in a rush to get to work so I started the day off in a relaxed and happy mood.
I knew I had a massage booked in at the physio and I always am pumped for that because I feel a million percent better afterwards. Coupled with the fact that it was Valentine’s Day, I was feeling pretty damn good as I was excited to see T after work because we had plans to cook dinner together a food is pretty much the key to my heart!
When I got to work I was thinking about how the day before I had been kicking my friend for not asking for a payrise he deserved. I myself thought I should be paid a little more for the level of work I am doing, and I started thinking it was hypocritical of me if I did not follow my own advice! Could I make my day even better and approach my (awesome) boss and talk to him about upping my pay? HELL YES I COULD! The worst he could do was say no right? I took a deep breath, put a smile on my face and 10 mins later, an extra few grand a year for me!
Before I left work for the day I saw some tweets reminding that a Lush Valentine’s Day competition I had entered was finishing soon and I remember thinking how good would it be to win that because I am a freak for Lush……
Dinner was great and T made me a raspberry and peach crumble for dessert. He also succeeded in making laugh so much that I couldn’t breath and was CRYING not once but twice. I’m sure I looked like I seriously had something wrong with me ha ha!
To top it all off, I saw I had a tweet alert on my phone……Anita from Love Vulcanella telling my to check her blog…..I won the Lush prize!
I feel like once I decided I was going to have an awesome day, even better things fell into place. I guess sometimes we have to take control and create our own happiness and every now and then, the perfect day comes along….
Do you ever get that urge where you just want to buy something? There is nothing you really need but you might be in a really bad mood and need a pick me up?
I few weeks ago I went to the shops with the intention of buying something, ANYTHING, after a really lame day. In the end I exercised self control for the most part but ended up with this little bargain to ease my mood.
Essie always have cute little cubes out with mini bottles of their latest collections, like this one I brought a little while back.
I had actually been thinking about purchasing an Essie topcoat and basecoat so this was a perfect little trial.
The cube includes:-
I’m pretty happy with the products and will probably end up getting the top coat at least when these run out.
$15.00 in the sale tray at Myer, bargain!
WARNING: I am about to go on an unstoppable rave about how much I L-O-V-E OPI Black Shatter.
To sum up my feelings: AHHHHHHH-MAAAAAZZZZZIIINNNNNNNGGG!
My nails were already painted this coral colour so all I had to do was very quickly apply a thick coat of Black Shatter over the nail. At first it looks like you have simply painted black polish , but within a few seconds it, well….umm…shatters!
It dries almost instantly and the finish is matte. I went over it with a top coat to give it some shine. Yes, your nails will feel a little rough afterwards but I’m not the type who minds this.
Obviously in my gleeful rush to apply this I got some along the cuticle bed. Lesson learnt.
I’m pretty certain this would look amazing over a silver polish, no?
I brought this for a steal off a lovely Twitter girl but I do believe it retails for $19.95 and is limited edition. I’ve heard it is hard to get so if you see it, buy it!
Now I’ve entered the world of shatter polishes I am obsessed. Does anyone know if the exist in different colours, cause I’m extremely keen on the idea of a silver one!
