What I Wore Wednesday

Not sure about where you are but the weather here in Toowoomba has been somewhat un-summer-like in the last few days. I even wore a jumper to bed last night! So, today I wore an outfit more indicative of spring rather than summer. 

I officially have six working days left and I cannot wait to move up to our new place. The removalists come on Monday so our house will be very bare. Can't wait to share it with you all.

The Ultimate Christmas Party Frock ... featuring Cinderela B

I was contacted recently by Cinderela B jewellery asking if I'd like to be involved in a Christmas blogger competition. Bloggers have been asked to create a post detailing their ultimate Christmas party outfit featuring their favourite pieces from the Cinderela B range. The winner scores one hundred pounds (beats me where the symbol is on my keyboard!) to spend on the website.

My favourite campaign at the moment would undoubtedly be the Love Honey Bees Campaign ... I mean c'mon - bee jewellery - YES PLEASE! Now they did ask for the ultimate outfit - I've kept most things affordable but thrown in a few items that if money wasn't an issue I'd snap up in a heartbeat.

Not so Casual Friday

Most days for me at work are what some people might describe as casual but today is definitely not casual Friday for me. Our annual staff awards ceremony is on later this afternoon and I'll be collecting my ten year service award. It's funny because I don't even feel old enough to have worked anywhere continuously for ten years. I'm not even thirty yet but not far off it.

Today's outfit includes a hint of red to celebrate Daniel Morcombe's life and his family's long journey of searching for him and his killer. I hope today's public and private funeral gives them some sort of closure.

Had to throw this classic in.

Last Saturday while on the Sunshine Coast my friend tried this jumpsuit on in Dotti and it looked AMAZING on her. At $59.95 it was just a bit too expensive but a 30% off one day sale yesterday sealed the deal. I had to try it on because it looked so damn good on her and what do ya know ... I bought one for myself too. 

Looking forward to dinner and drinks tonight with these special girls.

have a fabulous weekend whatever you're up to.

What I Wore Wednesday

Today called for s simple outfit as I spent most of my morning after the gym and before work vaccuming and windex-ing our mirrors and windows in preparation for our house going on the market. 

This dress was purchased a few years ago with a voucher the husband's nanna got me. Gotta love vouchers.

What I Wore Wednesday

Totally gone troppo today and loving the opportunity to wear colour, colour and more colour.

I picked up this Dotti dress a couple of weeks ago for 30% off the marked price. Original price was $69.95 (wtf?!) and I got it for a little over $20. Isn't the back detail just the sweetest?

Tonight's Project ...

Renovations are complete at our house and tonight's job is to move back into our bedroom. 

Here is the blank canvas we'll be working with.

It will be going on the market hopefully within the week.

Are these house-y posts of any interest to anyone?

I have often had my eye on a Modcloth beauty or two but have never actually purchased from them before. The 50% off email for new arrivals sparked my interest this morning and before I knew it I was entering my PayPal details for two new dresses.

The shipping was really reasonable too ... around $11.

P.S. Does anyone else have the urge to shop for themselves more at christmas time? I don't know about you but the pre-christmas sales are just about as-good-as ... if not better than the ones after christmas.

And does Christmas really need a capital?

I'm finally able to share the most exciting thing happening in our life at the moment ... The bit that makes our sea change actually real ... our new house. Settlement happens on the tenth of December and I will move up the day after I finish work which just so happens to be three days before Christmas. Luckily the husband's work pays for a removalist so that decreases the stress.

can't wait to get in and start decorating. Oh, and for the post-xmas sales - hello new BBQ and outdoor furniture. Oh, and a day bed. 

What do you think?
