A happy list for the week

It was great to read your baby thoughts :) Thank you!

I've been feeling good lately and wanted to share a happy list from the week with you.

♥ Watching Eat, Pray Love with Julia yesterday
♥ Eating maltesers in the movie theatre because I was starving
♥ Going to Max Brenner for the first time (with Julia)

This is my hot chocolate in my hug mug :)

This is the waffles Julia got. Delicious!

♥ Finding out Borders has a whole lot of new stationery ranges (my mouth watered)

Borders has pretty masking/deco tape now

My sneaky shot of the tape with my iphone. 

Another sneaky iPhone shot (why these photos aren't so clear)

♥ Seeing new stationery lines at work (whee!)
♥ Buying my first pair of TOMS shoes (I loves them)

I was quite excited to get them. 

 ♥ Going to TYPO and buying some Christmas presents (I'm in love with this store)

Most of this is for pen pals  :) Makes me feel less guilty for purchasing so much

♥  Buying things in Mombasa (one of my fave shops) during my 15 minute work tea breaks

 I love this necklace. I wore it yesterday and received quite a few compliments.

 My new skirt from Mombasa. I wish I bought the green one now just because I'm trying to get out of buying pink.

A floral dress for summer. I don't wear many prints so I'm starting to branch out. 

♥ Buying the Frankie 2011 Daily journal. 

This diary is slightly too big for me so I'm still not sure if I'm going to keep it yet. 

♥ Putting together my present for my friends baby. Little Layla was born on Thursday

Hopefully be visiting my friend and baby this afternoon. 

♥ Walking around Southbank in the afternoon. 
♥ Realising that I live in a beautiful city and I'm going to learn to appreciate it more.

Have a wonderful rest of weekend!

I loved seeing all your little purchases! I am struggling with our no shopping unless its christmas presents policy, whoops. But a girl needs shoes, makeup, books, stationery.....right? Hope you have had a nice weekend.
