Weekend Review #25


It was just me for most of today as Rory got called into work. So I spent the morning doing blog things and getting the laundry done. Afterwards, I wanted to do a little bit of shopping, so I headed off to the mall.

I had a few things in mind I wanted, one being a Christmas shirt. To you guys, it’s normally a Christmas sweater, but with it being summer down here when we celebrate, a shirt is better. I found a cute Pusheen one in JayJays! While there, I also managed to finally find a pair of short overalls.

I then had a look around the department store at makeup, because it’s fun. I tracked down the Wet’n’Wild MegaGlo highlighter in Precious Petals. I’d been looking for it for a few weeks, but the other stores were always sold out. It’s so pretty, and good quality for such a low price!

I stopped by at a cafe for lunch and settled on fries and a lemon pie. Both were amazing.

For the rest of the afternoon, my brother came over and we played a bunch of games together. I was getting bored on my own and I felt like company. Plus my brother and I are always happy to play games together. We got really into Risk for whatever reason, but we played for hours. Literally. I stopped for a second to admire the sunset though.

For dinner we had pizza and a salad from a favourite restaurant of mine, Mediterranean Food Warehouse. By this point, Rory was back and he went and got the food while Andrew and I kept playing our game. Eventually it was 9, and we took him home. We called it a night soon after.


Today was a late start. We both did our own thing and lazed around, watching TV. Eventually we headed out.

We stopped by the mall again. First stop was The Body Shop. I wanted to grab a little gift set for a Secret Santa thing we’re doing at my work. I also noticed some bath bombs and bath bars that had just come out, and I got a few to try out.

Second, we looked around at Whitcoulls which is a stationary store, just for fun. I grabbed some summer themed Christmas cards to send to blogging friends! A lot of you guys have a  winter Christmas, so I thought this would be cute! If you’re interested in one, let me know!

Finally, we went and got our groceries.

Back home, I made a blueberry milkshake cause I wanted a milkshake.

After more blogging activities, I decided I wanted to play more Risk, so I went to my parents place and played some more with Andrew. That game is oddly addictive.

In the evening, I decided to end the weekend on a bath and a mask. I used the Coconut Bubble Bath I bought and just had a nice cosy night in to get ready for another week.

  1. I still struggle to get my head around you guys having a warm Christmas! 😀 I was just thinking “ooh a Christmas t-shirt sounds like a great idea”…. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Christmas t-shirt here! It’s all about the Christmas jumpers! The cards are cute! And I know what its like to get in to competitive games with brothers 😉 Me and my brother always do at Christmas!


      1. The weird thing is that we do have a lot of that! Some choose to havr a barbecue instead. But lots of people I know have the big lunch or dinner which is so weird cause it’s hot and no one wants to eat that much ?


  2. I love that shirt! it is so cute! And girl you are a woman after my own heart! I love eating fries with something sweet!
    I love that! I love playing board games and wha a gorgeous sunset!
    Those cards are so cute! I love stationary and snail mail.
    That coconut bath bomb looks amazing! I love the color!
    I am so glad you had such a great weekend and I hope your week is amazing! ❤


    1. I’m so happy with that Pusheen shirt! Haha, I always need to balance something salty with something sweet ?
      Thank you so much for all the kind words and i hope you have a good week too!


      1. It is the cutest! And perfect way to celebrate the season! Same! The food struggle is real! Lol. my favorite is fries and ice cream. And now I am craving some! lol. Awe you are very welcome! Thank you so much sweets! ❤


  3. Your Christmas t-shirt is the cutest! I saw some cute Xmas t-shirts out here, usually it’s just jumpers. I love the look of the highlighter. We can’t get Wet n Wild here so I’ll keep an eye out for this when I’m next on holiday? xx


  4. That sunset picture is gorgeous! Did you take it with your DSLR? The Pusheen Christmas top and overalls are so cute! The highlighter looks super pretty too, you will sparkle and glow for sure! 🙂


    1. I actually used my phone! The sky was stunning though, I only ran out for a second, and my camera was charging so i couldn’t use it.
      Jayjays always gets such cute clothes! And I’m so happy with this highlighter ?


  5. I seriously cannot get over the fact that you have to buy Christmas t shirts instead of sweaters, and am also incredibly jealous because I am not feeling the cold over here! Sounds like you had a wonderful and productive weekend 🙂


    1. It’s so weird right! I’ve always loved the idea of Christmas sweaters, they always look so festive! Luckily, they’ve got t-shirt versions for us who have a summer christmas 😀
      Thanks Maria!


  6. Sounds like such a relaxing weekend angela 🙂 I love blueberries, I need to make a blueberry milkshake one time. This weekend was so fun, I went on a road trip to a women’s conference with one of my good friends. We got to meet one of our favorite Christian speakers and spent time taking pictures at the Silos (a famous area in North Texas), I did some babysitting with ladies from my church tonight. Overall it was a busy weekend but a lot of fun.


  7. Christmas in summer does seem different. Part of Christmas in colder climes is being wrapped up watching tv inside. Lots of people have to take the time between Christmas and new year off as offices close. So you end up with a week off when don’t do much. If it was summer time you could enjoy being outside instead of lots of tv.
