Things I Love Thursday 19/1/2012

Greetings to you on this gorgeous Thursday!  Is it just me, or is it still a bit strange to write ‘2012’ whenever you write the date?  I haven’t quite gotten used to the fact that we’re now well into the new year.


This Thursday, I love:

– Having time to catch up with my lovely friends before I move away.  So far this week, I’ve had a shopping date with my friend Mandie, brunch with my mate Tom and lunch with Violet and Jimmy.  I’ve got several more catch-ups planned over the weekend, and I can’t wait.  I’m going to miss being able to see these people whenever I want.

– Mocktails.  Mandie and I went to TGI Friday’s and treated ourselves to some decadent mocktails.  I can’t remember what these were called, but they had lime and cranberry juice and were the perfect way to refresh on a scorchingly hot cay.


– Cocktails.  Tom treated me to going-away drinks yesterday at The Toff on Swanston Street.  We sat on the balcony and sipped obscenely huge cocktails in the sun.  I felt very posh, until I tried to stand up and realised I was nearly too squiffy to walk down the stairs.  I had a Wonderland Fizz, which seemed remarkably similar to a Mint Julep, but with passionfruit pulp.  It was divine.

– Kermit-green nail polish.  This particular shade is called Tahitian Lime, and it’s an Ulta3 nail varnish.


– Cool baths on hot nights.


– Mao’s Last Dancer.  I read the book about a year ago and loved it.  I was a bit nervous to watch the film, in case it wasn’t as good.  I checked it out the other night, and I loved it.  The dance scenes are especially breathtaking.


– Teaching my housemate about Edie Segwick.


– Being able to vaccuum previously untouched sections of my floor, after my parents collected my desk and bookcases last weekend.

– This picture of Henry VIII as a cat that Sam drew for me as a going-away present.


What are you loving this week, sweetheart?
