1. A perfect work blazer from YDE
2. A necklace and a pair of earrings (that match the blazer) from Diva
3. Black mascara from The Body Shop (although I really truly needed this)
Oh well, I guess it all boils down to retail therapy and I really do love my purchases. I also bought the most adorable and handy eco coffee mug at Woolworths:
I think the mug will come in quite handy because prior to buying it I didn't have anything to take coffee to work in, so I normally gulp my coffee down as I'm running out the door because I'm (nearly) always running late. I got the green one with the pink band... too cute.
Friday night I didn't really do much of anything, Jurgen braaied (bbq'd) some delicious pork and steak kebabs and then we just chilled out and watched a movie.
Today, however, I was very productive. Last weekend (as can be seen here), I went to a nearby Garden Centre and bought supplies to start my own herb garden. Well being the amateur that I am, I bought four different herbs for one pot, which was too many. So I went back to the Garden Centre this morning and got more pots and was also able to find rocket seedlings so I bought those too.
While I was there I was sooo close to buying this guy... I mean who wouldn't?... Look at his hair!
I had already picked out a name and everything for him... Einstein, when I started thinking about all reasons that I actually wouldn't be able to keep him in my flat... oh well... someday!
After the Garden Centre, I went to yet another smaller Garden Centre/Nursery closer to my flat since the first one was out of tomato plants and/or seeds. I had never been in it before, but was so pleasantly surprised to find out that it had sort of a Trader Joe's vibe to it and had the most beautiful selection of roses.
I bought a bouqet of the white ones for the equivalent of about $5 :)
To top the whole afternoon off I came home and (re-) planted my little herb garden. I would like to also plant some lettuce in the future, but I don't think my poor little balcony can fit much more.
Well that brings us up to now, and I am exhausted and ready to jump in bed. I hope everyone is having a great weekend and staying warm!... It is the middle of summer here now, and I am so dreaming of having a snow day, although I am sure that all of you on the east coast are sick of them by now!
