Sunday Survey

01 Mood: Relaxed. It’s a long weekend so I feel like I have a little bit of extra time to get everything done this weekend.

02 Best thing about this weekend: Finally getting to catch up with my girlfriends after about a month of not seeing them. Oh, and going to the Royal Show for the first time in years.

03 Current Workout: I’ve started road-running again, after being at treadmill runner for about 6 months or so. It is (obviously) a lot harder to run on the road than it is on a treadmill, so I’m feeling the workout a lot more than I have been, which is a good thing.

04 What I’m watching: We finished up the second season of House of Cards, and were both in the mood for something else Washington-based, so we’ve started on Homeland. I’ve seen two seasons of the show already, but can’t quite remember what happens. I’m excited to see it all play out again from the start.

05 Skincare lust: A decent moisturising treatment. My skin has felt so dry lately, and I feel the need to slather it in something deeply moisturising. Any and all suggestions are welcome!

06 Listening to: I’ve listened to this song on repeat a lot this week. It’s a damn catchy song.

07 Favourite recent purchase: I saw a pair of shoes pop up on someone’s Instagram feed a few weeks ago, and made a mental note to check them out the next time I was at the shops. Lo and behold, they were still there. $25 from KMart – a cheaper alternative to the $170 Wittner pair I’ve been eyeing off.

08 What I’m reading: ‘Safe Haven’ by Nicholas Sparks. It’s completely different to the film, but somehow the exact kind of book I was in the mood to read.

09 I want: Tickets to see Ed Sheeran in concert next year.

10 Aim for this week: Plan this month’s book club meeting with my girlfriends. I got the ball rolling and enlisted some of my friends to get our book club started up again, now it’s time to plan our first ‘meeting’. Our first book is ‘The Returned’ by Jason Mott.

Sunday Survey

When I was looking through old posts on the site earlier in the week (before I transferred it over to private hosting), and I came across a few old posts that I used to frequently write. One of which was a weekly survey. I’ll be bringing these back from time to time, and to celebrate the ‘Sunday Survey’ comeback, my partner Sebastian has agreed to do one as well (read: he is sitting next to me as I type this, and I talked him into it).

01 Mood: Happy. We had a lovely day today, and it’s nice to feel a bit of summer in the air.

02 Best thing about this weekend: It was nice to head home and clean our house from top to bottom in anticipation of us returning there this week. I’m also looking forward to dinner with my family tomorrow night, to celebrate my brother in law’s birthday.

03 Last movie I saw: The Adjustment Bureau – I had seen this when it first came out, but went into it with no memory of what happened. It was pretty good, but then anything with Matt Damon in it is automatically pretty good in my eyes.

04 What I’m watching: We’re making our way through a few shows at the moment. Our most watched are 30 Rock, Fringe, and House of Cards. I love all of them for different reasons. Now that we’re up to season three of 30 Rock, it’s really found it’s stride. Fringe is drawing me in more and more with every episode, and House of Cards is just A+ all the way.

05 Makeup lust: There isn’t too much that I’m lusting after at the moment, although the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette looks pretty interesting. I’ll be checking that out soon for sure.

06 Listening to: John Mayer’s album ‘Born and Raised’. I listen to this whenever I’m driving around at the moment. It has the perfect summertime vibe.

07 Skincare Lust: I have run out of ALL of my Nivea fragrance free facial wipes, and I really need to stock up my stash again soon.

08 Haircare Lust: I still want the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dry-Spun Finish.

09 Current obsession: My blog! I’m putting more effort into blogging lately, and I’m really enjoying it. I hope this feeling lasts, because it’s a lot of fun.

10 Aim for this week: Exercise! We have been out of our proper ‘routine’ this month, and it’s thrown us both off a little bit. I’m hoping getting back home on Thursday will help us feel a bit more settled, and in control of our weekly routines.

01 Mood: Weird.

02 Best thing about this weekend: Random lunch.

03 Last movie I saw: The Adjustment Bureau – I thought it was very interesting and was probably a metphor for heaven and angels and all of that junk.

04 What I’m watching: We’re watching a lot. But the last one we watched was Fringe. I am keen to see what Jessica thinks moving forward, as I have already seen it.

05 Computer &/or Car lust: I’m lusting after a new exhaust for my car. Nyeooowwwwww.

06 Listening to: Random kids screaming around the neighbourhood.

07 Skincare Lust: Um…

08 Haircare Lust: Hair that’s not oily.

09 Current obsession: Car speakers.

10 Aim for this week: Don’t die. It’s a good aim.
