Just a Minute In...August


Via Flickr

I first want to say thank you soo much for everyone who has signed up for the swap so far. I'm going through the emails and already starting to match up partners. One thing I forgot to mention is, it would be preferable if you have a blog! Thanks so much. It just seems like it's better when there are more ways to contact you.

Just a Minute In....August

Looking... Forward to the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival this weekend. Two fashion shows on Saturday night and have a dessert 'debrief' afterwards :) Then Sunday afternoon it's a swimsuit show. So excited!

Planning... Our week of organising (next week!) as I have mentioned in a previous post Jason and I have taken a week off work to get our house organised and decorated.

Making... Lists and starting to figure out partners for the swap

Creating... Mini notecards, earrings and other bits for my Etsy shop and for a fundraising night

Obsessing... Over shopping at the moment. I need to stop

Praying... For guidance with all the personal issues that I have going in my life right now

Yesterday I went shopping with Julia. As I mentioned before she is in Australia to study. I bought a few things but they were mainly for this weekend :) It's kind of justified.

I got this from Dotti. It's to wear on Saturday night (might need a cardi too)

I bought these from work. Price was soo good.

I also got this from work. It's for Sunday.

I love that there tulle and lining under the skirt. It makes it puff out a bit.

Some baby clothes from work for a friend. None for me yet :(

I got these purple tights because it was buy one get one free and Julia wanted to get some red ones. So we paid half each.

I still have a huge bow fascination. I adore the giant bow headband.

And Julia and me.

Thanks everyone! I have lots of bits and pieces to do with the swap, giveaways, planning the next week and doing Etsy things.

Have a most wonderful and beautiful weekend!
