Not that surprisingly I didn't last that long with this "non-shopping" idea I got the other day. Oh well, hopefully I'll calm down by next week. Or not. I was really just going to the post office to pick up a box of stuff I sent up from Durban just before I left. Some tea, books, a pair of sandals, and a few pieces of clothing. But while in the shopping centre I noticed a lot of the stores had an early summer sale. It just seemed rude not to check it out, when they didn't get any of my shopping for months now. I came home with three bra's, a cardigan, a belt, and some bracelets.
I used to hate shopping for underwear and thought most things looked completely vulgar, but now there are so much of wonderful vintage looking bras out there and I think I'm a bit addicted. A silly thing to be addicted to really, cos it's not like I walk around showing them off, but it does somehow give me a very nice feeling knowing I've got pretty things on from the inside out.
Lace, roses, pastels, tiny bows and such, I just can't get enough of them. Especially when it's 50% off. The mint green one is from Lindex, and was actually more like 70% off. The other two are from Twilfit.
From Lindex I also got this super cute bunch of bracelets in different turquiose tones, and I like that I can just pick and choose or simply wear all of them at once. They go with most of my more summery clothes, so a perfect and quite cheap purchase as well, just 39:50 kronor.
I also wanted to show off my beautiful orchids that I was very happy to find was in bloom when I got back. Well it's a new bunch of flowers since I bought them last fall, when I got back from Durban that time. I love orchids a lot, I've got four others that are not in bloom right now, and it makes me want to buy new ones meanwhile. At the moment my windows are a bit full though, so I guess it's not the best idea.
If the weather is nice this weekend, I'm gonna clean my windows, cos it's really a bit embarrassing how dirty they are. My only excuse is that it was way too cold to clean them in March before I left. So, weekend plans: clean windows, meet up with friends, unpack more stuff from the basement, and plan renovating my bedroom that I'm not gonna let out for the first time since I moved in almost 10 years ago. That's a big project actually, and I'm very much looking forward to it. It's my big summer project to keep me busy and hopefully not thinking so much about the fact that I'm here and my other half is on the other side of the world. We do what we gotta do.
