Sydney Shenanigans

Hey pumpkins!

How are you?! Tonsil (or lack thereof) update... After feeling a bit better, my throat is hurting a lot today. According to my specialist that's normal though! I just can't wait to feel 100% better!

So as I sit on the couch sipping on my creamy pumpkin cup-a-soup and watching The View, I thought I would blog about the trip I took to Sydney a few weeks ago. I went with two of my best friends, Tim and Bec, to see the official Harry Potter exhibition. If you haven't heard about it, it's basically an exhibition which displays all of the props and costumes from the Harry Potter movies. I'm a complete Harry Potter nerd so oh my flipping God it was amazing! Here are a few pictures of our hotel room, nights out, and our trip to the aquarium. We also climbed the tallest building in Sydney and I tried an ABC shot for the first time. It burns!

Sydney is wonderful, and aren't my friends beautiful? :)

Bed Rest + Laptop = Online Shopping

Hey dolls,

I got my tonsils out on Wednesday! Although I can't really eat, drink or speak at the moment, I get to spend 10 days being waited on in bed by my wonderful mother. So yes, I am quite enjoying being a hermit. I bought Skins Season 4 on DVD and am partway though the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy. Having all this free time also means that I can catch up on my blogging, Facebook stalking and most importantly, engage in some serious online retail therapy! Here are some of the bargains I've picked up in the last few days...

First I stopped off at Miss Selfridge. Usually I try to avoid websites which charge for shipping but I don't think £9.00 is too bad. Even though I was slightly disappointed with a dress I bought from there a while back (it looked nothing like the picture), I decided to give it another crack.

Black 'Wild Cat' Tee £10.00

Gold Textured Peterpan Collar £16.50
Photobucket
Silver Cat Ear Tunnel £5.00

I posted a photo of the cat earring on Facebook, and so many of my friends fell in love with it. I'm pretty sure I bought the last one though, because when they went looking for it the website was out of stock. Oops! I also showed my boyfriend what I bought and I think he's a bit worried I'm turning into a crazy cat lady! ;)

I have a confession to make... I'm slightly in love with ASOS. I picked out eight items, which came to a grand total of $128.14. Then I used the code 'OUTLET10' to get 10% off! And even better, my birthday is coming up so mum said she'd foot the bill as part of my birthday present! Woohoo!

Let me know what you think about what I picked out! I am so flipping excited to get the packages in the mail! I've still got eight days of bed rest left, so there's plenty more time for shopping. What are some of your favourite online shopping sites? I hope you are all having a wonderful week.

Love love love,
Annie xx
