Weekend Review #20

Saturday

A fairly busy day to start off the weekend. I got up early as I had lots of blog related things I wanted to do. Lots of photos and things to write. I also wanted to try film some vlog related things, as I’m still doing my two video a month thing cause it’s fun!

My morning was lost to taking photos, writing posts and filming. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the upcoming posts and projects I got going on for this week.

Eventually, a break was called for so we could go do laundry and get ready to go out.

We also had to stop by Bunnings (a hardware store), because we need a lawnmower, as well as to eye up new showers, vanity counters, sinks and toilets, cause it’s looking like our bathroom will need some major work on it. So yay. We left Bunnings with our new little lawnmower, and a vague idea of budgets.

We then stopped by Kmart, cause I wanted to buy little fake plants for the place. I’ve already said I’m not into gardening, so looking after real houseplants seems like too much work. Except for my cactii, I still love them and am doing my best to take care of them, but they’re pretty much fine on their own. So I got some of that.

Finally, we got groceries. Last week, I bought the Chai coffee instant packets. I tried them for the first time this morning, and remembered that I hate chai with every fibre of my being. The smell and the taste had me making faces, so I gave up after a few sips. After complaining to Rory, he tried some, then just drank the whole thing in the end. So at least it’s not going to waste 😀

In the afternoon, I met up with Mum at Rebound. My favourite thrift store which I keep going to. We talked and looked at stuff. Mum found a few dresses, one she plans to wear to Jo’s wedding next month. I found a plain black sweater which I was happy with, cause I need to start collecting more solid colour tops and less patterns!

While I was doing this, Rory was doing things in the garden. He was making the little paved areas more definite, so we could walk around our yard better.

After that, Rory and I decided to go out for dinner to Mediterranean Warehouse. A favourite haunt of mine. We got Isle of Capri pizza, then each got a little sweet treat. I had tiramisu, he had a lemon slice. It was all good food, and we left with happy tummies.

Then it was back to more blog work till bed time.

Sunday

Today was confusing. It’s the beginning of daylight savings for us, which means that the clocks go forward an hour. So we woke up at 7, but it was actually 8, you know? Anyway, in celebration of the official beginning of spring we had waffles for breakfast!

Then I was off again doing blog related things. This time, I was trying to do flat lays. Those are tricky damn it. I also wanted to do another OOTD post, cause they’re so much fun.

Eventually it was lunch time. I managed to do some budgeting related things, and a little journal writing. Then it was back to editing videos, writing and editing posts. This weekend was just filled with blogging activities, and it’s so much fun.

We also started watching the fourth season of Bojack Horseman. We went out for a bit as we wanted burgers for dinner, but we wanted to make them at home. So we had a quick errand trip out.

Finally, I wanted to do a bit more. So I spent an hour on music things. By that I meant, I spent half an hour on my keyboard learning some songs, and half an hour on my ukulele. It may not sound like much, but I’m hoping to nail down this 30 minutes everyday thing with both instruments. Get my music skills back up to par.

Eventually it was dinner time, and we had burgers.

Finally, we hung out for a bit, then I set up a bath to play with my last bath bomb. The Dragon Egg!

I think I like this one best! It smelt so good, and while it didn’t look as spectacular as Intergalactic, it was so relaxing. All the lavender and citrus fragrances made me very relaxed and sleepy. It’s the best thing to do before bed. Makes me feel ready to get to the start of another work week.

  1. When you said spring, I was thinking no it’s autumn. Then I remembered that you do not live in the cold UK ?
    Blogging can take up so much time. I am going to try and be more organised. Your weekend seemed very productive. I went out for dinner as well on Saturday.

    1. Haha, it always takes a second to remember ?
      Blogging does have a habit of taking over a lot of my spare time. I’ve been working on keeping it balanced with my regular life, but I can sometimes spend too much time on it, just cause it’s so much fun! I do my best to pull back though. Thanks Laura! 😀

  3. Sounds like an enjoyable weekend! Flat lays are difficult but yours looks amazing, well done! I think I find them difficult because I’m short and I’m not as high up as other people. It was my boyfriend’s birthday so I spent the weekend with him ?

    1. Thanks so much Chanelle! I was on Pinterest for ages trying to get inspired, and I think some may have rubbed off on me ? I’m really short too, so I get a stool to stand on to get a better angle ?
      Your weekend sounds like it was fun and filled with love! 😀

  4. Idk what it is about chai tea or lattes etc, I just do not like chai either. I’ve tried it on multiple occasions because everyone raves about it but my taste-buds still don’t like it. I’m so jelly that you guys are heading into spring that means you have summer right around the corner! Love the OOTD- I like that spot outside your house with the white wall against the grass, perfect for OOTD photos!!

    xo, JJ

    1. This was the first time I’ve had chai and definitely the last ? Its just such a weird taste, I can’t wrap my head around it. The weather doesn’t seem to know it’s spring yet. Today it’s pouring with rain and gale winds ?
      Thanks Jenny! I love our little backyard. The white fence and grass does make a nice little photo backdrop ?
