When I last blogged I had returned from a trip to Melbourne and filled you in on what I had bought down there and let you know that I had eaten up a storm. The food-filled travelogue post will be coming soon! Just looking through the photos and remembering what we gobbled up has made my mouth water!
And while I haven't been enjoying the end of financial year sales too much I did pick up a few bits and bobs while out and about recently, as well as a fabulous online purchase so you can expect my reviews and raves to come very soon. Hint: they are all things beauty!
Mid year holidays also mean that for a few short weeks I don't have to worry about uni work and endless textbook readings but get to enjoy reading for pleasure again. I was a mega-bookworm growing up and really hate that my uni workload has got in the way of reading over the past few years. I was one of those people who was late to jump on the bandwagon for TFIOS, despite constant protests from friends, and after seeing the film which I loved I finally got my nose stuck into the book. One day later and it was all read! A bunch of book recommendations will also be coming at you soon! I would love to hear if you have any as well.
So besides getting over a very nasty virus, studying my butt off for exams and reading never ending uni articles I have managed to land myself two jobs. One in retail and one in an office setting, similar to what I was doing previously. It is such a relief to be employed again after months of not being able to find a job that was able to fit in around my uni commitments. Job opportunities in Sydney are few and far between so I am very lucky to be working again. All my pennies are going straight towards replenishing my holiday account.
I also caught up with a few friends who I first met in the UK who were visiting Sydney, checked out a cafe or two, have been enjoying the winter fashion and cooking up a storm. I farewelled my sister who jetted off to Mexico for a holiday, packed my room into boxes to start renovations and today I ate my way throughout the good food and wine show! Lots of posts coming your way, thanks for sticking around! Catch you all soon!
