I slipped but I did not slide

Yesterday, I walked past Ally fashion when I was going to the supermarket to get groceries....ok, ok Ally is actually no where near the supermarket and I may have taken a deliberately long route to get there just so I could quickly duck in... 

I ended up picking up this green shirt for ten smackers which I didn't think was too bad at all. I also grabbed a white peplum top and a white lace top.  I am meant to be investment piece shopping but I feel like those two items are definitely trend pieces that I may not wear very much so was happier to go with a cheaper version.

I am nearing the final hours of my four day long weekend and the feeling that work is just around the corner, that usually hits about 3pm on a Sunday is creeping over me. Don't get me wrong I quite enjoy my job but enjoy being a lady of leisure just that little bit more...

Today I had such a lovely morning - my friend Zoe came over and cooked me breakfast (I don't usually make my guests cook for me), then we re-tagged all of the vintage dresses for the market this weekend and then she did my make -up for me which was a real treat. Zoe is my little make-up guru and has just started a blog so you should definitely head on over and check it out.

I am also giving up cows milk for a little while after having my worst reaction to milk to date at lunch today. I felt like my stomach was knotting itself up. Has anyone else experienced this? What did you use as an alternative? I am going to try and give soy a go as it seems to be readily available but would love to hear other suggestions.

  1. When I saw the title of this I was so hoping there would be elbow shots! Hope they heal soon xx

    2. Damn i so should have done an elbow shot! I like the idea of almond milk but not sure if many Cafes stock it? Maybe I could drink that at home.

  2. I drink zymil milk - it is lactose and gluten free (the two main issues with milk!) more and more cafes in adelaide are starting to have it, i don't know about canberra :)

  4. I drink coconut milk. It's really healthy for you. I don't actually drink it, I just use it in my cereal. If I was out and ordering a drink though, I'd probably just use soy, but I'm not sure how good soy is actually for you so I try to avoid it at home.

    Also you look adorable as always. Come to Canada and help me shop please?

  5. Soy milk is actually pretty wonderful. It takes a little while to get used to the taste if you're just drinking a glass of it, but I don't even notice it when I cook with it or use it in cereal. Plus, it lasts way longer than normal milk!

    I love that shirt, btw. (: Ducking in for a few minutes to grab a couple things is never a bad idea.

  8. I love these photos, they're so simple yet so creative. You look good. Hope you find a good alternative to milk!

  9. You look so cute and summery in this outfit! I use a splash of half-and-half in my coffee, but other than that, I don't drink milk. If I need milk (cereal, lattes), I use almond milk, which is a great alternative!

  10. I don't know if goats milk causes the same reaction as cows but it's quite nice. :)

  11. I usually go for vanilla soy milk if it's in a latte or something. It's really flavorful! But I avoid almond milk, it doesn't taste right to me ever.

  12. I usually drink almond or oat milk, but when I go out I'll just order soy because it's usually all that's available. Just experiment a little until you find one you like and can stick with, we all have different tastes!

  13. I really love that outfit. Those pants look so comfy and I saw a pair at Forever New that I'm loving. As for milk I pretty much never drink it because it makes me feel a little sick. I only have it in coffee and cereal (I don't use milk for oats either) but besides that I never drink it. I used to have rice milk but it is quite watery. x

  15. Love this outfit! I've got a very similar top and it's my favourite at the moment - wear it with everything. I'm the same - I like paying a bit more for quality, long-lasting pieces, but I also can't help snapping up trends for cheap! :)

  16. I did an elimination diet last year for 10 weeks. For me, gluten is the biggest culprit. However, I do think I have a slight intolerance to dairy at times. I now only drink Zymil lactose free milk which allows me to indulge in my love of cheese. Also unsweetened almond milk is nice. And I don't mind soy if it's the only option either. Good luck! I know those stomach knotting pains you speak of!

  17. I drink almond milk, because normal milk hates me. The best one to drink (nutritionally speaking) is actually coconut milk. It's hard to get a hold of though (you can buy it in 1L cartons sometimes, I've never tried the cans of coconut milk, I think that would get expensive though!).

    I've heard a lot of bad things about soy milk (including it being linked to infertility in men, hypothyroidism in women, and endometrial cancer), so I steer well clear of it. I also steer clear of 'lactose free' milk because my view is, if my body can't handle the lactose then I shouldn't be tricking it into consuming it with an additive to break that lactose down.

    Like anything new, anything you try will take a while to get used too. But I promise, you will get used to it :)

    PS. Cute outfit!
