Just a fun little post to share some of my purchases from the States.


I adore my Starbucks mug, it reminds me of lazy starts to the morning eating a bagel and drinking a latte. It amazes me how Starbucks is everywhere in the US, Australia has such a different coffee culture. Everyone has their little local coffee shop that they get their morning coffee from, larger coffee franchises just don’t seem to do as well here.


My Tiffany’s necklace was an early bday gift from my mum, purchased on Fifth Avenue, of course.


The Red Romper is a bit of a diversion from my usual clothing picks but it is fun and will be good for Summer. I think I need a bit more of a tan first as my white legs are a little blinding...


Finally my favourite purchase is my Kate Spade wallet, I was due for an update and have no doubt this one will last me years.


So as you can see I am definitely due for a little shopping ban and am going to start concentrating on building up some savings and paying off the four new tyres and muffler I had to get for my car. Have you bought anything fun recently?

  2. Way to rock the US purchases, girl! :) I think you summed up the US with the words Starbucks and Tiffany's. Starbucks still blows my mind, though. I remember when the first 'bucks came to my little Wisconsin town...people freaked out. Now it's everywhere. Weird! While I usually embrace the individuality of little shops...but I do love that I can walk into any Starbucks anywhere in the US and know exactly what my Chai Latte will taste like. It's a little comforting. :)

    As for new purchases: none! I've been trying to keep things to a minimum around here in anticipation of Christmas. I'll live vicariously through your shopping! :)

  3. I love your purchases! And for the record, I think it's awesome that y'all have more independent coffee shops than big chains. I like supporting the local folks :)

    The Kate Spade & Tiffany are classics, for sure. And I love my Toms!

  10. I totally came back with about 6kg extra in my case. But I don't have anything as nice as you! I bought the Toms wedges while I was in San Fran.

    What a gorgeous necklace! You lucky lady!

  13. Ahhh Tiffany. I have a couple of Tiffany bracelets which I treasure and adore.
    I wish our coffee culture here in the UK was more like yours- too many Starbucks and Costas here! Though a few independent places are springing up in the city centre
