Monday Must Haves #1

It feels like I have been away forever!  Work has been completely mad, getting used to being in the store, closing up by myself and preparing for a visit from someone in senior management.  Around my work, I've been trying to fit in writing a letter to my spangly new pen pal, making holiday plans with my boy and working on my crafting!  I've sorely neglected my blog because there simply aren't enough hours in the day that I'm not busy doing other things or sleeping *chuckles* What I thought would get me back into the swing of regular blogging would be to start a little weekly post of things that I've seen around and about and am currently lusting after!  So, here we are, starting today with - 

Yay!  I *finally* got a weekend off last week and, after catching up on loads of sleep, ironing and other chores (as well as spending a really awesome Sunday with my Mum for Mother's Day - we rocked it with white wine, dried fruit and nuts to snack on and an incredibly competitive game of Scrabble) I got a little bit of time to head out and pick up a few things for my holiday.  I can't believe it's April already, this time next month I'll be hanging out with my boy in sunny NJ (^_^)

I *love* jumpsuits at the moment!  I actually bought this one on Saturday and have lived in it since - it's comfy, cool and will look awesome with a cardigan and flats or wedges and a big, light sun hat.

I'm loving long at the moment and this maxi dress is gorgeous - I'd team it with a light green cardigan for cool summer evenings and some pretty gladiator flats.

I've wanted a mood ring for ages and this one is *so* pretty.  I've only ever seen plain beads in mood rings before, I love the floral pattern that makes this one so different!

The nerdy, Super Mario playing girl in me *adores* this.  I don't think I'd ever take this off, it's just freakin' awesome.

This piece of art has such beautiful colours in it.  I'm not usually a fan of more abstract work but this one really caught my eye.  It's gorgeous, if only I had somewhere to hang it!

I hope everyone is having a great Monday and that their week is getting off to a really good start!  I'm excited that time is rolling by so quickly at the moment because the sooner I get to be with my boy again, the better (^_^) For me, this week is going to be about working hard but also making some more time for myself, to have a little pampering, a little quiet me-time and to get properly cracking on my letter writing and crafting.  Have a good one guys!


  1. It's a little late, but I wanted to make sure I said thank you for the postcard! It was so lovely to hear from you- thanks for reading and saying hello! I love that painting as well, what beautiful colours. xo.
