Recent Things: That Time I Found The Secret To The Perfect Messy Bun

Why hello there! Happy Friday!

This weekend has been busy busy busy and my brain has been buzzing with to do lists and things I need to do all week long - so I am SERIOUSLY ready for a weekend... even though, let's be honest.... I probably won't be able to relax all the way. 

But at least I won't be expected to work 😜

Before I can get to the weekend, I need to fill you in on the week! 
Here's what's been happening in our world recently! >> 

Recently Loving: An extra snuggly Chanel. The temperature has dropped a bit this week and Chanel must be feeling it because she's been extra snuggly!

In the summer I almost forget how snuggly Chanel is because she gets too hot and prefers to keep to herself - but when the weather cools down? She's back to her snuggly self!

Recent Purchases: Well, I actually purchased this a little while ago - but it just arrived and I am OBSESSED. 

I have really long hair so messy buns are pretty much a nightmare. But I bought one of these bun makers and holy guacamole it is SO easy - and the buns actually look so good. OBSESSED, people... OBSESSED. They are so cheap and there are so many colours/options. My sister has already bought some for herself after seeing how well they work. 

House Fire in Oatley

Recent Dramas: Last Friday we were sitting at home when I smelt this horrible burning smell. I was looking all over the house but couldn't find where it was coming from so I opened the front door and saw smoke EVERYWHERE. 

We live right by a huge park so I quickly ran upstairs to see where it was coming from, thinking the park was on fire - but Jesse then realised it was actually in the opposite direction - coming from a house. 

I don't know the poor people whos house was on fire - but luckily no one was hurt. Their home is badly burnt though and I really hope they have insurance that covers it all! What a nightmare! 

The Memories That Make Us by Vanessa Carnevale

Recent Reads: THIS BOOK. Oh my goodness, you NEED to read this book.

It may only be March, but I think The Memories That Make Us may just be my favourite book of the year. It went straight to the MUST READ section of The Ultimate Bookshelf.

Early Mornings in Oatley Park

Recently Loving: Early mornings in the park. As we near the end of daylight savings, the sun is rising later and later which means I get to take advantage of the sunrise on my morning walks! Though, I do wait until it starts rising, otherwise it's way too dark!


Recent Fun: On the weekend we had some friends come over for dinner and Jesse turned it into a full on meat fest with a HEAP of beef ribs. 

Jesse has become a little bit known for his ribs amongst our friends - and he thinks of himself as a bit of a pro. 

Recent Companions: Trixie, as always, is my constant work companion when I'm working from home. She spends all day at my feet - often with her head resting on my foot as I work on the computer. SO cute!

Cheap Blank Wooden Babushka Nesting Dolls

Recent Arrivals: Yesterday these Blank Wooden Nesting Dolls arrived on my doorstep! I ordered these ones (so cheap!) for a bit of a weekend project. I got two sets - one for Jesse and one for me - so that we can have a paint-off. 

I don't know what design I'm going to do on mine... any ideas?! 


Recent Posts: This week on the blog I share The Ultimate Bookworm Gift Guide and this delicious Vietnamese Inspired Bun Cha Salad Recipe
