weekend bliss

It has been a very lazy Sunday, I guess this is just a preview of what's to come these up-coming holidays. Enjoying the simple things. Actually being bored. I used to think boredom was a dreadful thing but now it seems quite pleasant as I think of just relaxing and taking in the mellow temperature whilst eating frozen raspberries and blueberries. Novels are going to be effortlessly devoured this Summer too. I guess I have to make up for lost time {it's been a while since I've been able to enjoy a bit, fat book}.
The image above is from the Ruche blog. It's the sweetest DIY on how to make this sweet little bathroom tray. I thought it would be a great idea for a weekend project or for when you have spare time. The design is very classy and Chanel-ish. I can't wait to make one for my new and improved room! (pictures coming soon)                             

Yesterday I went shopping with my Mum for some Summer essentials. I got a cute bustier one-piece swimsuit from Target, similar to the pictured swimsuit. I was slightly more reluctant to get them than my Mum was {the pattern was very bright and bold} but I decided to try them on anyway. It turned out perfectly, the colours didn't make my white skin look blindingly pale or washed out. And, when we took them over to the counter, we realised we had also gotten them at $9.00 off. Bonus! An adorable and unique swimsuit for $36, which leaves me with more money to spend on clothes. ♥

Cute suit!
I am jealous that you live in Australia! It is summer there now, and here in the states it is getting cold--- and it is winter. ARGH.
