Shopping confessions: Fess up, what have your bought this week? (27.11.12)

Hands up if you have a shopping splash or two to confess to us this week? I would put both my hands up but it makes it tricky to type!!!

We are actually moving into fancy pants new offices in just a little over a week, so I have been clicking myself silly looking for stylish office-wares to deck out our awesome new digs – and don’t even get me started on the amount of time I spent in IKEA this weekend!!

Now I didn’t want to bore you with desks and BILLY Bookcases, so I thought I’d keep my over sharing to the more fun office decor items, like these super sleek replica ghost chairs, some gorgeous (non-replica) Missoni cushions (yes they are exxy, but also amazing!), and of course, a nice new silver skull (what office is complete without one?). The weirdest thing in my shopping cart this week was an adult sized Penguin Onesie – which is for a dress up party (and possibly for lazy Sunday’s around the house!).

SHOP IT: Penguin onesie, US$11.99,  , Missoni cushion covers, $199 (each),,  Silver skull moneybox, $16.95, , Ghost replica chairs, $69 (each),

Before launching in 2007 I worked for a whole bunch of women's glossies both here and in the UK including Shop Til You Drop, New Woman (RIP), (also RIP), Cosmopolitan UK, and I even had a column in FHM (RI... I might be jinxed!). And before all that I was listing shopping as my number one hobby from about the age of five.

Just a few for me - I have been really good I swear!

I had to buy some little beauty cases for travelling, and also a travel wallet to keep myself super organised whilst doing so.

This all came in at a measly $30.00. Thanks Cotton On & Typo!



Oh... AND I got this cute as little twosie from a little store in Perth. $40.00 - WHAT?! So stoked with it!



And (if it counts) my partner bought these for us/me. He has a new obsession with scented candles which I am MORE than happy with! He went to buy the candle and then somehow snuck the sausage dog brooch into the transaction for me as well... I don't know how he did it without me noticing!

Haha, I also bought an animal onesie from eBay (the giraffe one) to wear to an upcoming fancy dress party!

I bought Loreal primer, cream eyeshadow stick, and 2different mascaras. I couldnt decide.


This week I bought two new winter jackets, boots, and two pairs of flats and two tshirts, as well as getting my hair done. 🙂 The perks of selling your car and buying a cheaper replacement.
