Happy Things to end the week with

Hello my lovelies. It's been a pretty good week. We had the Wednesday off as it was a public holiday in Brisbane. It was for the Royal Queensland show or Ekka as it's known. Jason and I didn't go. We haven't gone in a few years but we had a really lazy day. We were supposed to have a picnic with some friends of ours but we cancelled it thinking it was going to rain and had dinner at their place instead (and it didn't rain sigh).

Anyway, I have been in the biggest shopping mood lately and went on a little spree today. I think I have made a decision on the pleated skirt and will go with the blue skirt. I usually always buy nude or coral coloured items and figured I should branch out a bit. Plus as part of my happy list I bought a coral pleated dress...


♥ My coral pleated dress from Forever New. (That came with a gold belt but I can change it up)


♥ Visiting Typo and finding a cute heart shaped chalk board (then realising I forgot to buy some chalk too). A few of these bits will be part of a giveaway I'm having soon.  


♥ Carrying this giant Kikki.K bag and lugging it on the bus. I got a lot of weird looks because this bag is nearly bigger than me. You can't tell in this photo. 


♥ Buying some cloth covered A3 boxes to store my stationery. Plus today they had a Happy Hour Special where you get more discounts (the reason I bought two of these).


♥ Just a nice note in the Kikki.K magazine/catalogue. How I feel about journalling.


♥ My lovely stationery goods from Kikki.K. And again some of these items might be in my giveaway coming up. 


♥ These tiny stamps are adorable and they come with some mini stamp pads. I haven't quite decided if this will be part of the giveaway yet :)

So this weekend will be full of washing clothes, writing and catching up with letters, doing my swap journal, lots of reading and relaxing. I can't wait! Have a fantastic weekend!

Wow that dress is stunning and I love all your other cute items. You will also have to recommend a book for me to read as your book shelf is full of all the book series that I have read, so you must have good taste.
