Weekend Review #27


Before I get into this weekend, I wanted to share my gifts I got from our Secret Santa at work. My lovely co-worker got me some cute mugs and this pretty stone platter. They were all also piled with chocolates which me and Rory ate already!

So onto the day. Starting it off with breakfast, coffee, and getting ready for the day!

We then headed off for errands for the day. Groceries and such. I wanted to go to the mall to get the last of presents, but the mall carpark was closed cause it was that full. Yikes.

Back home, we decided to make some milkshakes, topped with whipped cream! We threw in strawberries, bananas, blueberries, honey and yogurt!!


Afterwards, I wanted to go to Rebound. It’s a local thrift store and I haven’t gone in ages so I wanted to see what I could find. I found three pretty things. These yellow sandals, a black and white singlet, and this singlet dress thing. All perfect for summer!

For the rest of the afternoon I started writing out my Christmas cards! I had so much fun and even started doodling on them.

After dinner we had some hot chocolate, and just relaxed till bedtime.

I was in the mood for muffins for breakfast. Specifically, the Apple Cinnamon Muffins I made a month back. They’re just as delicious as I remember!


I paired it with coffee again from my new giant mug.

I decided to wear my new top as we went out to the mall again. This time, we got a park and managed to finish our shopping. I also got a new concealer, as my current one is running low. I got the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. Another thing I bought was a new water bottle. It’s one of those neat ones that keep cool drinks cool and hot ones hot for up to 24 hours!

Back home, I did some blogging things then tidied up a little as a friend was coming over to hang out. We played a few new board games which made for a very relaxing afternoon.

As always, I ended my weekend on a little pamper session. I used the last of my bubble bath bars from the Body Shop. This one was Pink Grapefruit. I also tried the last mud mask from Blue Lagoon.
