MY WEEKEND..

In the midst of my online shopping frenzy which I think is slowly coming to an end. Last week my makeup organiser arrived. I brought (x2) this baby online from a ebay store in China. If I am right in saying its a knock off version of the Makeup Box AU but the quality is just as good if not the same. I paid $29.00 and didnt bother to pay for express shipping and it arrived 2 weeks later.
 
 
 
 
If you live in a apartment like me and share it with your boyfriend you'll appreciate and get excited over storage items that make spaces look bigger than what they appear ha!
 
It has two medium sized draws at the bottom and a seperate compartment at the top I ended up putting my foundation and perfume in the larger section at the top and then my lipsticks an brushes in the other smaller squares. It took the boyfriend a couple of hours to realise and then he goes "Oh wow you organised your stuff.. that looks good" Hmm.
 
 
 
 
I love keeping an eye out for new pieces from Australian Designers this one if from Nookie Its a dress/top. I wore it as a dress on saturday. Best part was I picked it up while it was on sale I got over $100 off the orginal price.
 
So the boyfriend sold his car over the weekend. Ya'll know how much he loves this thing. He needed to move it on before it got too many Km's and also before he lost too much money on it. We met the new buyer in the city on Saturday morning and had arranged to meet at 10.30am but they didnt arrive until almost 12pm - Slightly rude.
So we parked the car on Lonsdale St and D has his final moments.
 
 
 
I will miss this car also, it so beautiful to drive and so much power!
To kill time went and had some breakfast in the lane way outside QV.
 
 
 
Because of the hot weather on Saturday morning I decided against hot coffee and optd for cold.
Wondering around the city on a saturday morning made me realise there are so many little cafes an alley ways that I've always just walked past and never thought about.
 
What are some hidden gems that you know about in the city thats good for breakfast?
Happy Monday.

  4. Oh he sold his baby. I have to say I dont really get that argument about cars. You are just going to have to buy another expensive car that also depreciated instantly in value.

    I am so not a car person though. I drive a Mazda 2 that I bought 3 years ago for $10,000.

    1. Yeah I don't get involved with him and his cars! He has always been smart and never made a loss so far which is a bonus!

      He's a smart boy! But he is defiantly very sad it's now gone haha he's keen to save up for a while now! X

  11. Ooh love the makeup storage. Actually, anything storage related...I've become slightly obsessed with ikea lately! Especially since I bought a new wardrobe with big shelves and I'm like hmm how can I effectively utilise all this space?!!
    Totally agree with you on all the little hidden gem cafe's! There are just way too many to visit! My fave hidden gem is "La Belle Miette" you know the cute little macaron shop in hardware lane! :D
