Recent Things: Serious Sales and That Face You Make When..

Happppyyyy Friday!

I just blew in from my morning walk... literally blew in... the wind is crazy at the moment and it feels more like a blustery Autumn day than Spring - but I didn't get killed by falling branches so I am counting today as a win. 

But it's Friday and the weekend is almost here and this girl is SO glad. But before I can get to the weekend, I've got to catch you up on the week!

Here's what's been happening in our world this week! >> 

Recently Shopping: ALLLLLLLLLLLL the Black Friday sales. I still think it's weird we have Black Friday sales in Australia now, but I'm not complaining about the savings.

Here's where I've been shopping and what I've been buying: 
  • OzSale - Did someone say FREE SHIPPING?! This morning I grabbed some essential oils, a new quilt cover and super cute tea cups.
  • Cotton On/Typo - 45-75% off! I bought a bunch of gifts for Christmas as well as some new shorts and super cute Disney stuff that was half price.
  • Catch of the Day - there are heaps of bargains on Catch at the moment. I won't tell you what I bought because they're Christmas gifts - but I bought those + some cookware.

Recently Feeling: Sick. Somehow I came down with the flu on Friday night and I’ve been coughing, sneezing and sniffling ever since!

Recently Making: Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie and alllll the Thanksgiving foods for Thanksgiving last night.

It’s always a lot of work and a lot of mess, but Jesse is worth it! Unfortunately, you get a crappy oven shot because I spent all day photographing for clients and had two dead camera batteries and zero photo motivation, haha!

Recently Packing Up: A box of books to take to the secondhand book store. I’ve been really strict with what books I do/don’t keep lately because my book collection just keeps on growing.

If I read a book and don’t love it, it goes straight in the donate pile. If I read a book and wouldn’t lend it to someone else, straight in the donate pile... and if I read a book and decide I really wouldn’t read it again, it goes in the donate pile. That way my bookshelves are filled with books I can share with my friends!

So, if you're a friend reading this who borrows books from me, DON'T WORRY! I'm not giving these books away and you're missing out - I'm saving you from wasting your time 😝 Come over and borrow some good books instead!

Recently Discovering: That a Wolverine is a real animal and Hugh Jackman wasn’t just playing an odd wolf/man hybrid.

You learn something new every day!

Recently Reading: The Lost Pearl (so-so), You Were Made for This (weird, but weirdly fascinating.. I devoured it in a few hours), The Right Place (so-so) and The Noise Downstairs (really good! Creepy and weird and twist filled!). 

I've currently read 81 books this year and I've decided, why not try for 100? Soooo that leaves 19 books and 38 days left in the year 😝
