We've been on a strict budget pretty much all year. Because being on one income isn't easy and with The Mister self-employed, we never know if it's going to be feast or famine. Any extra money we have is supposed to be going towards a house deposit, so all I've been spending money on is groceries, bills and daycare. BORING!
But just looking is cheap! And fun!
If I had a big fat disposable income here's what I'd be buying:
The Zocalo embroidered quilt from Anthropologie. I realised yesterday that the outdated dooner cover we have on our bed is the same one the Mister had when I first met him. When he was 21. Which is over 12 years ago.
Mens watch from Michael Kors. No, not as a gift for The Mister, though he could borrow it if off me if he wanted to. I love chunky monochrome watches.
Boys&Girls green lightning pants from Love it Love it Love it. Not that Ivo cares, but it would be nice to see him in something new and a bit trendy for once, instead of his sisters lace trim hand me down leggings.
Botines by Beatrice Valenzuela. I actually ordered these about 2 years ago, only to get an email that they were out of stock. It was probably for the best as where we live it's only cool enough for closed in shoes for about 6 weeks in a year.
A new mug, to replace my old favourite (which has mysteriously disappeared). This stylish looking one is the Mugr from HMM . Just wondering it this one is BIG enough...? It's a bit hard to tell from the photo.
A denim or chambray dress. Similar to this Burberry one. I love the pockets. Buttons are practical as I'm still breastfeeding. Three quarter sleeves probably for the best as I've let my arms go.
I have my first day at my new job tomorrow. It's just a couple of days a week until the end of this school term, but it will be nice to be dabbling back in the workforce again. Maybe at the end of the contract I will be able to reward myself with a cheeky purchase or two! (If there is anything left after daycare! Or maybe even if there's not- hehe)
Wish me luck for my first day!
