Things this week

/ Thursday, 27 April 2017 /
Look at all the cute tiny plants! Sadly we did not bring any of the little saplings back home (since no one in my family has a remotely green thumb. I personally think it is a curse.)

  1. Mum and I went to the Hawkesbury farmers' market in Castle Hill last Saturday, hoping to scour some yummy goodies (breakfast was a bonus!). We ended up walking out with fresh fettuccine pasta, pork truffle salami (Goose on the Loose has an AMAZING range of salami from duck to kangaroo to wild boar), eggs, Mudgee honey, a beautiful bunch of silverbeet and two cushion covers! I think we'll definitely return in the next month, albeit at an earlier time since all the good stuff seemed to run out (even by 9.30am - the horror). The farmers' markets are on every 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month and are open between 8am to 12pm.  
  2. Tuesday was a public holiday (ANZAC Day to commemorate fallen soldiers and those who served in wars). Vu and I spent the day watching Guardians of the Galaxy Volume II (it was actually really beautiful), glugging home made butter beer and then re-watching Guardians of the Galaxy Volume I.
  3. Discovered that I may be going on a business trip (gosh saying that makes me sound so old) to China/ HK in the week commencing 8 May. Fingers-crossed this will actually happen (though I have my doubts due to budget constraints...)
  4. I don't think that I have properly disclosed my unhealthy obsession with makeup on this blog. My obsession has grown steadily over the years thanks to close friends and YouTube (on second thoughts, YouTube can also debatably be called a friend of mine considering how much time I spend with it...). Anyhow, at 11pm last night, I made my first Colourpop makeup order with two friends! I had my eye on their lippie stix (Lumiere, Brink and Tootsi) for a while. I also distinctly remember swatching a friend's highlighter collection earlier this year and falling head over heels for Flexitarian (a very OTT champagne gold with holo flecks) and Hippo (a duochrome silver-lavender). Very excited for my order to arrive and to go swatch crazy (cue makeup swatches going up and circling around my entire left arm, and remnant glitter on face for next 3 days after excitedly trying on all products at once)
