Books and shoes

It was a public holiday yesterday. I went to the Lifeline Bookfest with Jason and it was great! I bought myself a few old hardcover books. So cheap and for a cause. I was able to get 6 hardback classic books, a paperback novel and five 2008 wedding magazines for $5. 

These are the hardback classics that I got. I love the look of these books. And what's even better is the notes that are sometimes written in the front if it was a gift years ago.

My mum and dad went later on in the day and mum bought me all of these books. She knows I love children's books and fairy tales. It was so sweet!

For a late lunch Jason and I met up with some friends to have lunch in one of the parks. It was such a beautiful day and perfect for catching up and lying out in the sun. I should have taken photos. 
These are some new shoes I bought a few weeks ago. I've been looking at them for awhile now and working in ladies shoes made me decide to get them =)

Meet my wedding shoes. I mentioned them in a past post and I decided to get them. I bought them the past weekend (probably because I was working in ladies shoes again) and I've wanted them for awhile now. They are super high but I need the height and they are still comfortable. They are a champagne colour so it suits the wedding theme =)

Anyway, back to cleaning and planning (and watching Gossip Girls on my laptop lol).

I love the wedding shoes. A lot of wedding shoes are the type that you could not really wear again, but these ones def could be worn a lot!
