Oops! Guess who forgot to write It’s Friday on, uh, a Friday?! (Hint: not George Clooney.)
Presenting, belatedly, my favourite things from the week that was!
x Standing Next To Lola Van Vorst (Above!) From Australia’s Next Top Model Season 5 At The Bus Stop & Feeling Like An Absolute Dwarf – Seriously! She was pretty and ENORMOUS. I think this encounter excited me because a) well, she was just so ludicrously stunning, in that whole I’m-trying-not-to-stare-but-am-failing-miserably kind of way; and b) I couldn’t help but think “ooh! Even semi-famous people have to endure the L90, too!”
x Anticipating A Weekend Full Of Rest & Relaxation – Wiseman’s Ferry, here we come! Walking! Talking! Having meals together, relaxing and completing a miniature road trip! As lame as it may sound, I can’t WAIT for the weekend ahead, simply for the fact that I get to spend an entire weekend with my boyfriend (a rarity!), and the opportunity to explore somewhere new.
x Finding Silly, Sparkly Objects To Add To Outfits – A glitter-encrusted butterfly which typically adorns my wall? Yes! A diamante` covered vaccum cleaner? No! (Although, that would be kind of impressive, right?!)
x Other Little Things – Wearing false eyelashes; $5 pizza lunches; afternoon sushi feasts; traipsing through the streets of Surry Hills; coconut and lime scented body mist; researching beauty treatments and surreptitiously drooling; crystal shopping; sweet potato fries; messages from people that you haven’t spoken to for AGES; watching the sun rise; and people watching!
Suggestions For The Week Ahead
x Experiment with wearing different colours and observe if your mood changes: do you feel more serene in purple? Radiant in yellow? Bull-like in red?! (It’s strange, but I DEFINITELY feel sunnier in brighter shades!)
x Ditch your weekly shop at the supermarket and take to the markets or a gigantic green grocer, instead. Okay, so supermarket prices can traditionally be slightly lower than those found at independent retailers, but the food that can be found at the latter is usually so much more delicious and interesting! Handmade pastas! Foreign cheeses! Fresh breads and international sweet treats! D-e-l-e-c-t-a-b-l-e.
x Try a new fruit and add it to your breakfast. Pomegranate on toast? A custard apple over oats? Dragon fruit in a smoothie?
x Bare walls? Old wallpaper? Oh, wallpaper, schmallpaper! Why not line your walls with maps of the world, instead?
Friday Monday/August! (Yes, August! Excuse me, but have you seen my friend 2010?!)
How was your week/weekend?
