Snail

Today is meant to be a productive day for me but I seem to be moving at snail pace. I am trying to pack for Melbourne but keep distracting myself. I dont think i mentioned that the reason I am going to Melbourne is to go to Big Day Out which is a HUGE music festival in Aus. The main person I am looking forward to seeing is this little miss...


The festival is on in Sydney today where it is apparently 42 degrees celcius about 106 degrees fahrenheit. So hoping that it cools down by Tuesday.
I went to an op shop today in the next suburb that was having a sale and got a top that I adore and am going to wear at the festival. I also found some gorgeous earrings all for a painstaking $6. I love thrifting but am not very good at it, would love any tips from the professionals out there.

The colours are more vibrant in real life and it is a very light weight material, perfect for the heat.


I also hit up the gym today and did a little bit of shopping and bought my Valentines Day Swap partner a few little things. I have seen a few things on etsy that I think I will get her as well. Anyway I guess I should get back to the packing. Hope you all have a great weekend and I will be back in a few days.
Oh and wow 56 followers! When I first started this blog I thought I would be lucky to reach 10 followers. Thankyou so much for reading and I do try and visit each and every one of you as often as I can.

  1. eeeee! lily allen at big day out! that's wicked, i can't wait to hear all about it! who else is on the bill?

    i think your thrift finds are nifty! thrifting is definitely a skill worth developing. i used to be terrible at it, but with some practice i got much better. basically i have a few shops that i spend a lot of time in... eventually you get to know the kinds of items they get in, and if you go often and pay attention, that's when you start to notice things and really find the gems. especially in smaller shops, get to know the staff, and then once they sort of know you, you can ask them what kind of stuff they have in their back room!

    so much fun! stay cool, xox.
