Thoughts of the week…

01) I need some new running shoes because the pain in the soles of my feet seems to flare up when I wear my Nikes to run in on the treadmill. I’ve got my eye on a pair of the ASICS Gel Kayanos so I might have to start setting some pennies aside to purchase a pair.

02) Having said that, I’m officially on a no-buy for the rest of June and all of July. I need to get serious about putting money into savings before the house is built, and although I’m sitting on a decent nest egg – it could always be better.

03) The Sad Dog Diary

04) The third season of The Killing started up last week and I am SO excited to have Detective Holder back on my screen every Monday.

05) My skin has been really dry lately, which is weird for me because my skin is basically never dry. A testament to how cold and bitter this Winter has been so far I guess. I had to dig out my Lanolips Golden Ointment to help with my hands. This is an amazing product, and if you’re suffering with some dry spots I highly recommend picking this up.


07) The National released their new album last month, and it’s wonderful (although it does have a very similar sound to their first album but hey I’m not complaining).

08) Speaking of new albums, The Civil Wars (aka my favourite band) are releasing theirs this month and I absolutely cannot wait. I’ll be breaking my no-buy for that.

09) I ordered a couple of things for the new house because MYER were having their stocktake sale last week, and I’ve had my eye on these beauties for a little while. I ordered the Delonghi Brilliante Kettle and Toaster (both in white).

10) I’ve been wearing Burt’s Bees Pink Blossom Tinted Lip Balm all week and I love it. It’s the perfect shade of soft pink and smells a little bit like redskins. Not that I can smell anything at the moment, as I seem to have contracted my first head cold for the season. Grand.

  1. The clarisonic might be making your skin dry. Perhaps drop it for a while and see?

    That kettle is amazing! I’ve been looking at it too!!

  2. Those BB tinted balms might just be my favourite tinted balms ever.

  3. I’m obsessed with the killing too – Looks like it could be an interesting season!

  4. I love that kettle and toaster in the black!! Working at MYER is so hard :'( haha not to buy it all.

    Re ASICS – keep your eyes out on Catch of the Day as they have them there for a great price (including the Kayano’s). I also check out eBay for them too – rather than spending $300 here, I prefer to wait a few weeks and get them for half that price from the UK or the US!

    Ooh that’s my housemate’s kettle right there! Love those designs!

    You’ve inspired me to try and go on a no-buy…*try* being the operative word! :/

  6. I need to catch up on the killing, man I love GOT such a great show, love the kettle and toaster <3
