I love........

......the sound of rain on a tin roof......

.........thick cut hot chips.............

lucas pawpaw lip balm

the sense of accomplishment when you achieve something you set out to do

a fan-effin-tastic coffee

my ever growing collection of literature

....being a grown up
(although it does scare me shitless sometimes).....

.....the thrill of a good run, followed by breakfast......

scorching sunshine that frazzles your hairline

........a great fanfiction story (embarassing confession time alert :)............

the unadulterated joy of children

debates with Stuart about the rights of human beings to sex changes
(and other such topics)

........coming across a bargain on something you have coveted for awhile.......


What was that last one, you ask???

This jacket that I had been coveting for quite a while on the maxshop website.
Original price, Aus $399.

the sleeves look big, but the fabulous tailor I go to can sort that out no problem

Bearing in mind recent purchases, I decided to pass on the jacket (in all its soft, drapey goodness) until and unless it came down to half price. A few weeks back, it was on sale for $299. Was tempted, but I resisted.

Logged onto the website yesterday and they are having a 50% sale. Which includes my jacket (oh hell yeah, I've perved on it so many times it might as well be mine :).
Score, for $199.

Cannot wait!


What do YOU love?

post-edit: and I abso-fuckin-lutely LOVE the smell of the ocean :)

What a lucky find! Don't you just love it when you can hold back and it pays off?

I did major shopping this weekend too, but goddammit it feels good to spend money. That's what I like. Buying stuff. And sleeping. Give me both of those, and I'm happy as a clam.

I love this list. I love the sound of rain in general.

I adore the second jacket.

Meg and Komie said...

Ooooo you are one LUCKY lady...love when you have been lusting over something and you are Finaaallllly able to call it your own! Can't wait to see it on you!

Thank you for your comment, your so sweet!!! I used to feel that way about neon too. I soon realized though purchasing neon items and just admiring them at home wasn't cutting it anymore! It was time to share the fabulosity of them with everyone!
I know you can pull it off Anika, you would look so hot in something neon pink =) or baby steps...maybe neon shoes?

To add to your list, I love Ben and Jerry's oatmeal cookie chunk and cinammon buns ice cream and I super share your love of coffee.
