Thrifting Thursday


I am so exhausted this week. I seem to have got used to the shorter working weeks for Christmas and New Years. How is everyone else feeling? 2 more sleeps till the weekend though so hopefully I can make it. I just think it will be a very early night for me tonight.

I found this dress at my local lifeline for $4.50. It's so pretty and light weight, perfect for these hot summer days we are having. I can't believe how many bargains I found in my local thrift shop, it was amazing. I will post about them all soon.

Don't forget my January giveaway and hello and welcome to all my new followers. I will be over to say hello to you all soon.

Cute dress and beautiful surroundings for pics.

Lifeline has AWESOME oppys! Every time I go to Qld (I am from Qld, did I ever tell you that?) I go CRAZY in the opshops.

I have this stupid story from a few years ago where I bought so much stuff from Qld opshops, I had to buy one of those red, white and blue plastic hessian kind of bags to put it all in to get it back to Vic becuase I couldn't fit it in my suitcase. I also smuggled a few passionfruit and paw paws my grandparents had grown in there. So the bag burst open when the guys tried to throw it onto the plane, and I went to collect it at the luggage carosuel and there was this ripped open bag, with bloody clothes everywhere and all this illegal fruit! I was MORTIFIED.

I get plenty of sleep, I eat healthy, exercise... but at the end of everyday I am totally buggered! I can't ever get on top of it. *sighs* You know the answer - siestas!
