The Weekend Blog | I bought clothes!
20th Mar 2016
It’s amazing how much the weather has changed over the last few weeks. On the day the engineer came to install our internet, just a few days after we moved into the house, it snowed. Now it’s beginning to get warmer (just a little) and it feels like spring.
I feel like this week we finally settled into a routine in our new house as we are both back at work now. This weekend we bought bedside tables, and our sofa is due to arrive next week, so once that arrives we can finally start to think about the non-necessities such as art for the walls, plants and general décor. You know, the exciting stuff.
Yesterday I took myself off shopping in town and I genuinely enjoyed myself. Yes, me, enjoying shopping.
Basically, I haven’t really treated myself since I started my job back in September. In fact I hadn’t even spent the money people had gifted me for Christmas and my birthday! Of course, I’ve done a lot of spending in recent months, but personally I don’t get a kick out of purchasing a washing machine or a fridge.
I’d only bought one or two new items for my wardrobe since September, and it got to the point where I joked about owning an accidental capsule wardrobe. But all joking aside, I was sick and tired of wearing the same clothes week in week out. Fortunately fashion is picking up again as we leave winter behind so I found loads of lovely new pieces of my wardrobe. The cactus t-shirt is of course my favourite. I also stocked up on a few of my favourite skincare products, and a few bath treats for Lush.
That should keep me going for another 6 months!
Next weekend is Easter and as it will be my first Easter spent in the UK for a few years (I’ve spent it in Portugal, France and New York in recent years) I’m going back to Shropshire. I’m looking forward to having a bit of a break and seeing my friends and family.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
