I made this dress!

I’m just so ecstatic that I finally finished making this dress, and it turned out so much better than I imagined! 😄👌

I’m loving all the winter beige, nudes browns and olive greens and thought this material I picked would be perfect to wear under a warm coat to work this winter. The pattern is New Look 6301.

Training outdoors!

image

Training outdoors, and the only way to keep warm is to keep moving in this freezing weather! ❄🌞 my session consisted of #boxing, short jog and #skipping outdoors, then chin ups and stability ball butt lifts with a weight rested on my hips, indoors. 💪 Not much rest in between, I was SO exhausted, but felt great afterwards. Big thanks to my awesome trainer @cdimarco7 as always xo

Quick review of the movie SPY!

 

 

Tim and I were invited to the advanced screening of SPY, which is coming out in cinemas on May 21. I urge you all to watch it. So light and funny! Melissa McCarthy I remember started off on Gilmore Girls and was brilliant in ‘The Heat’, Co-starring Sandra Bullock.

It had a lot of action, but not over the top. Good for the guys too! Tim loved it. Next movie I can’t wait to see is Aloha!

For under $50, as you can see in the photo above, I’ve got my little cute apple that dispenses my post-it notes, and is really helpful when I’m in a rush and need to quickly jot something down. Also my file stand, easily divides my documents and keeps them tidy and clutter free.

For under $100, I’ve added to my my under $50 items to get more organised. I’ve organised my paperwork including bills, warranties, work contracts, tax info and other important documents, in a huge ring folder. In the pink drawers, I’ve placed receipts. Keeping receipts is a must,  so this is an easy way to store them.

Within this budget I was also able to get some stationery. Highlighters, notepads and adhesive notes. I can be a kid sometimes! I bought some of those scented texters. Yum. Strawberry! Makes the filling in of paperwork a treat rather than a chore!

For under $200, including most of the items above, I was able to also purchase a beautiful wooden filing cabinet. I have been looking for an affordable-and nice looking cabinet for so long. I looked everywhere and finally found it. Isn’t it beautiful? I am going to be so super organised, just like I am at work! Yes!!! The top drawers will have all my crafts, like letter stationery, stamps, wrapping paper, ribbons and just miscellaneous, beautiful stationery – I’m obsessed. And the bottom drawer will have all my files.

So excited to be organised at home!

Here are the links of some of the items I purchased from Officeworks.
