Week in Pictures / Latest Buy

Wow two blogposts in one day, I must be on a roll.

Now this will be my first 'week in pictures' post and contemplating whether I should even upload it. But then I thought, heck why not! I promise they WILL get better! Mainly just me being a terrible photowhore and showing u my outfit etc. Thought i wouldn't use those photos that I did in my previous post so this one is rather uneventful -or more like event lacking.

Left - Right, Clockwise. Some random outit, One of the dishes at yumcha (if you've never been to yum cha before u should def try it! -one of my fav things!), me being a terrible camera whore haha, the back of my outfit, the front of my work outfit, and a pretty rose :)

I'm so glad I got that leather skirt, I swear I have worn the crap out of it! (Pretty sure I wore it 4 times this week haha)

I also met up with the gorgeous kim from CheeKsterr08 (check her out on youtube! and her friends and we had some coffee and just did a bit of browsing in Mac. I swear if I lived in America I would buy half that store. I've always been into pink lippies and tried on pink nouveau today! Its quite a bright in your face pink which I really like... What are your thoughts on this colour? Should I purchase or not? [Excuse the non smiley angry pose, I must be an angry child haha]

I naughtily enough bought a top *hangs head in shame* but in my defence it was on sale for 29.99 down from 119.99 from witchery! I love it as its so different to anything I've seen at the shops -it'll be a great layering piece in winter and autumn and great with a bandeau underneath and cutofs for summer! -I feel like this piece will definitely last throughout the seasons with me! I love how it sits on me even thought it is sized 'M/L'. When I first tried it on I was like hmm... how would I ever wear this piece! but the more I thought about it (a short stint of putting it on hold for me as I coffee'd with Kim and co.) I decided to bite the bullet and buy it! -Lookout for a youtube vid as to how i style this baby in the near future ;)

So I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. Work for me tomo! Poop!! oh well, it pays the bills! -or in this case, funds my shopping addiction!

Getting much more into blogging these days so hopefully I'll take more photos, and blog like twice a week at the minimum or something! I also want to play around with the layout and font etc of my blog :) I think minimalism is key :)

With that, I bid everyone adieu.

Thanks for reading another one of my rambles.

Saturday Adventures

Hello hello!

So here I am with a new blog post!

Yesterday me and the boyf just chilled for the day.. Ran some errands, went into the city and ended up having some amazing korean BBQ buffet for dinner -exciting cos you got to cook your meat yourself on a little stovey/grill thing! Needless to stay I was absolutely stuffed! Not full enough however to turn down some fresh fruit and berry crepes ;) (Everyone knows that dessert stomach is a different stomach right!!) All in all, a pretty good day :)

top/dress - f21, faux leather skirt - glassons, boots - glassons, bag - ebay
michael kors sunglasses - asos, necklace - equip

a few pretty roses

you'd think paying to cook your own food wouldnt be fun/delicious but it was!

I'm a sucker for crepes! these were even better with fresh fruit!

Might start posting up 'my week in picture' posts -but really it will be most of the stuff from my instagram(Follow me at 'caffaccino'!!), since I post most of the stuff on there! what are your thoughts? would you be keen to see that? (If noone replies i'll just take it as a yes anyway haha) Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! I'm off to enjoy the lovely sunshine :)

Love C x

Forgive me father, for I have sinned

Okay, I know I know, I am like a neglectful horrible mother, leaving my blog to fend for itself again. It is like a child that hasn't been loved, that will turn out to be a troubled teen (most probably getting knocked up) with mummy issues... but enough of my wack analogies, lets get to my blog post :)

Now I've been craving a DSLR camera for the longest time. Thinking, 'Now if I had a DSLR camera, I would blog ALL the time!' Yup, blaming the fact I do not have a DSLR for not becoming an epic blogger when reality its just pure laziness. How shameful. So the other day I got super close to buying one, however my boyfriend decided to rain on my parade (god, what a douche! -Sorry Tim, just jokes! I love you really! haha) and said maybe I should really start building up my blog and blogging on a regular basis before justifying spending over 1.2k for something I might not always use.. Unfortunately his logic was totally sound and correct, so here I am, blogging and trying to post on a MUCH more regular basis -and who knows, maybe one day my child won't turn to drugs and get knocked up, but will instead turn out to be a mega genius and get a scholarship to Harvard? Oh a mother can dream. (Okay, enough of the blog being a child analogy, its probably getting a bit creepy)

So this month I have decided it is definitely time to kick into saving mode. I'm thinking of either hitting Europe or America in Aug/Sep ish or maybe Taiwan in December... Maybe none of this will happen, but it definitely gives me the motive to save. Quote mother: "Catherine, if you want to go overseas you really need to start saving, I mean you already have enough clothes"... Thanks mother, I really already knew that. haha.

Now for all those that watch my YouTube channel, you'll know how much I buy every month -probably enough for a family in Africa to survive on for life (yeah I don't know, that wasn't the best of my analogies). However, like Lindsay Lohan and being sober, the two just don't seem to go. Now I know we are only 9 days into April, but I have managed to only purchase one item -that being my biker boots. However, I, like Lindsay, fell off the bandwagon. Luckily I only bought two things (well three including an iPhone case). Now I know Mac is ridiculously overpriced in New Zealand (twice the price of that in America) but I could not resist! -Plus I hardly buy that much makeup, so why not splurge! I Got the gorgeous snob lipstick (satin finish for those that wish to know) for a whopping $40! For those that don't know the colour, it is this gorgeous pinky/lavender ish colour. The lighting in my room isn't very good so it doesn't really show the proper colour it is. (I'm sure you can google it and millions of pictures will come up! -Or you can 'bing it' -which I often like to say [hey what can I say? I like to root for the underdog, even tho I google] much to my boyfriend's disgust)

I also got a pair of heels from Rubi Shoes for $30 on sale.. Yes i know, another sale item... *hangs head in shame* They remind me of the Steve Madden Gretta Heels but for a fraction of the price (although price spy: Dotti also have moreorless the same heels for 19.95!!! -unfortunately not in my size). Hopefully these babies won't be too bad to wear for work, they seem to be a little bit wobbly, but fingers crossed!

And that folks, concludes my blog post. $75 down today but determined to get back on that bandwagon, let's see how that goes.

Also hope everyone had a lovely Easter, ate too many Easter eggs, got too fat and now feel the need to go to the gym!

Love you all and thanks for reading my rambles!
