A Laid-Back OOTD

For my first ever OOTD, I was just playing around with my camera and tripod outside, trying to look casual and laidback. The whole process was just so much fun and so awkward, so of course I figured I’d share it.

The outfit is just a regular Angela standard. Top, cardigan, jeans and flats. It’s easy and super comfy, I wear this a lot.

This will be a super short post. Now let’s move on to the pictures.

It was bright outside and I was super squinty. I don’t know how to avoid that.


Weekend Review #19


We always wake up so early now. Our curtains aren’t super thick and the main bedroom gets a lot of light. So when the sun streams in, we wake up. At 6.30am. On a Saturday. Course we didn’t get up till 8 as again, it’s the weekend. For breakfast, I wanted scrambled eggs on toast. I finally got to take advantage of the sunroom and our little patio furniture. Even though it wasn’t super sunny, the room was warm and I enjoyed my breakfast.


After breakfast, we hung around using data on our phones since the internet still isn’t up. But someone is coming on Monday, so hopefully we’ll have Wi-Fi again soon. For this weekend, I wanted to try take lots of photos. I haven’t been adding much new photos to my blog lately, so I experimented a bit and took lots of random photos. We’ll see what blog posts I come up with for the upcoming week! Next, we did our load of laundry and risked hanging it outside as it was only cloudy.


We went to get the groceries next.


Anyone else love these mirrors?

For lunch we decided to just have some pizza (which I forgot to picture). Then I worked on blog for the rest of the afternoon. It’s fun since I don’t have as much time during the weekdays now due to our commuting. We also filled up BB-8 with some chocolate chip cookies!

I also decided to check out Rebound to try my hand at Kali’s September Thrift List. It was around a 20 minute walk and the air was brisk which was nice.

I found a few things I like. Nothing off the list though sadly.

Also on the way home, it started raining. But spring rain. So it was like little showers. I still enjoyed my walk. But I forgot about the laundry, so I had to drag it all inside and hang it up again. Then I went back to blogging and started listening to Hamilton. I did want to bake, but I’ll save that for tomorrow.

This carried on till around 10pm.


We had a late start, getting up at around 9am. For breakfast I had my usual porridge and coffee. It wasn’t a great day weather wise. Spring often brings around a lot of rain for us.


After mucking around with my hair and makeup, we were finally ready to head out to buy some things from Kmart at around 11.30. While I was mucking around, Rory set up our chicken roast for dinner since his Dad and partner would be joining us.

We bought things we needed, and things we didn’t need. Then we had lunch. I had pumpkin soup.


Then I started baking a little carrot cake. Cause I missed baking. I’m really happy with how it came out! I hate having to wait, but we’re saving it for dessert, so I resisted.


After that, we washed lots of dishes, and watched Chuck for the rest of the afternoon. A bit before dinner, we realized we didn’t have placemats. So we ran off and bought some along with some coasters.


Now we’re ready! We had roast chicken, mashed potatoes, lots of veges for dinner. Then carrot cake for dessert! The rest of the evening was lost to chatter, food and laughs. It was a good way to get ready for the start of a new week.
