it's Melbourne, its cold. We all know when winter time comes people head indoors. This winter is especially cold. Its the coldest i can remember since the 1999 winter.
At this time of year I am constantly on the lookout for bars with open fires and new exciting "indoor" activities. Yesterday i stumbled up on this amazing new venture the State Library has begun - Outside-in Cinema it's showing once a fortnight for the majority of winter!
Tonight's showing is "Exit Through the Gift Shop" rave reviews have flowed for this documentary (still being debated if it is a documentry or mockumentry) since it premiered at ACMI last year.
The rest of the program is varied in genre and there is something for everyone. Giddy UP!
There is big difference between wants and needs. The impact of this understanding is so important and comes with time.
Over the past couple of years i have begun to realise that when you go out you appreciate what you have. An appreciation of what is important. I love sneakers. I have 30 odd pairs. Last year i decided to not buy one pair for 12 months. I ended up going beyond the 12 months and edged into 16 months.
This year i am giving up buying cosmetics - all forms. I have such a backlog of products from buying and being giving promotion (thank you L'Oreal, Priceline and Clinique) packs.
I bought a plastic under bed storage box and put everything
in there and this is just the unopened products!
I think i should be fine to get through the 12 months without buying anything.
I just had my birthday and my god-mother gave me a present... She always out do's herself with beautiful gifts. A few years ago she gave me Mor Cosmetics soap, it was the marshmallow fragrance. It was the best soap i had ever used and the scent was unbelievable. This year she has bought me a gift set with s soap and hand cream, once again marshmallow.
The gift tins are so beautiful and will used lovingly after the pieces have been used.
I am waiting on the postman to bring the package... I love knowing its coming. This will be the only cosmetic item i receive till May 31st 2012. Going to be an interesting year.
