Being sick sucks!

Hi guys! 

Well I've had such a draining week. 

Last Friday after work I booked in for the doc right away, I was feeling so not with it, knew something was up. After the visit I was armed with antibiotics so I tucked myself early to bed to beat this bug before it really got me.

Saturday comes around and was feeling not so good, but I powered on, it was my friends 30th birthday! I had booked massages at the Vue day spa in Geelong. I opted for a pedi and I have to say it was awesome! Best pedi I've had... But the colour selection was a bit dodgy- I think there was only around 10 colours! Haha 

The day spa is attached to the vue apartments (right near the waterfront) - so I was expecting a decent size day spa. However it wasn't really a day spa, it was just this tiny waiting area and some random treatment rooms off it. It was cute enough but nothing impressive. I do have to say the girls working there were ultra friendly and both the birthday girl and myself walked out much more relaxed than we came in. I think I will visit sometime soon seeing as I'm a gtown local again! 

Later that evening we ventured to the city to terra rossa for dinner. Mez had her birthday there a few year back and I was hoping the food and drinks would be as yum as I remembered. It definitely was!!! We went all out and ordered 4 tapas as well as a main. Talk about so much food! But all was delicious! I have to say I had the mushroom pasta for my main and I was silent the whole time I was eating it, it was THAT delicious. I love mushrooms and pasta so how could I go wrong haha After chatting and knocking back a few mocktails it was time to go home. The drive home made us laugh about old times. Sometimes I forget how long high school actually was- over 10 years! What the hell!! 

The birthday girl then surprised us with a LancĂ´me lipgloss when we arrived home, wrapped up as a little present and all. Such a nice thing to do- i felt bad taking it as I didn't give her a gift apart from shouting her dinner (big whoop) and a card but it's lip gloss and that's my weakness damn her haha hopefully another day spa arvo will happen sometime soon. 

Anyway when I woke up Sunday morning I felt terrible, and the next thing I know it's Thursday and I have literally been stuck here (apart from seeing the doc) since sat night. Today is the first day I've felt like I'm starting to feel like myself again but that said I still feel far from right, I'm still in a daze half the time! 

One thing I've learnt from this whole thing is that I have had signs for ages that I hadn't been 100% but i just kept plowing through. Turns out that will come back to bite you... Big time! So off to the doc tomorrow and hopefully its all good because I actually do want to go back to work. I just want normalness (if that even is a word) again! Getting sick sucks, how down in the dumps do you feel! 

So in order to cheer myself up I'm going to go back to a simpler time when I'd race home from school to watch this after 4pm... 

Heartbreak high anyone??? I was so in love with Alex Dimitriades! I still have his picture next to my computer at work curtsey of jcats hehe I wonder if this show was quite as good as I remember- but somehow I'm thinking it wouldn't be hehe

Seasons are a changin'

Well talk about a let down for Grand Final day! The game was just so ... I dunno, disappointing. (Although I know a few of you think footy is a yawn to begin with anyway!).. nothing exciting really happened. I was happy that the Hawks won, only because Freo were getting to smart for their own good! 

Meanwhile Melbourne's wind is going cray cray on us. Debris just seems to be flying around everywhere not to mention pelting rain that just makes me wonder why I even bother making my hair perfecto in the morning. I end up just tackling with my hair to stay out of my face and not stick to my lipgloss haha I guess the wind is a sign that the seasons are changing which is a good thing, I feel like this winter has totally dragged. I think the limited day light annoys me most. 

Anywho I must be getting old, just rambling about the weather! 

Last Friday night I went to Highpoint with Rhi (aka the bomb diggity -- just for you Rhi haha) after work. She totally convinced me (well didn't have to convince me at all really) after mentioning Tutti Frutti frozen yoghurt. Umm yeahhh I'm going haha.. I love that place, never gets old! Anywho after snacking up (one needs their energy to shop, as Mez and I know) we wandered around Highpoint sussing out some bargins. DJ's had buy 3 OPI item and receive the 3rd free, and can you believe this, but I passed! Rhi was all over that shiz though! I was proud of myself that I held back hehe. And we did go into review and later on I tried on some really cute dresses but walked out thinking a new dress, is it really needed?!

We did spray a whole heap of perfumes while we were in DJ's. I really do want a new smell, and I think I found one after our shopping expedition. But the problem is I can't remember which one I sprayed! So annoying! 

By Sunday afternoon the Review dress and perfume were just playing on my mind, so I ended up in Myer intoxicating myself in perfume (I think I have narrowed down what it COULD be) and playing dress ups in Review. I found this dress and before I knew it I was at the counter making the sale! I love Review dresses, so feminine and flattering. 

I actually have a few things coming up in the next few weeks which is good, but at the same time its hard to juggle with my studies. My exam is at the end of the month thank goodness, not that I'm ready to sit it, but at least once its done I can go back to normal again! I'm at the point were I could move out again by the end of the year, but at the same time I still have studying to go, and I kind of think maybe I should just stay here and get it done without any distractions. I'm struggling so badly at the moment though, and I thought I'd be better after my holiday but its just got worse. The travelling to and from work is really getting to me now and I especially miss having my own space and being totally independent. Everyone keeps telling me its only a year, you can stick it out bla bla bla. In my mind I know its not that long, but for some reason I'm just finding it really tough. Maybe I just have to ride out this period out for a bit and then see how I go in a month or so. How do you guys stay motivated to keep on track with goals? Maybe I need a few pointers!

The week that was

Hi Guys! 

Not much to report really... in a month is my next exam, so basically my weekends now are full study mode. I'm going to be studying like a Boss.. Literally! The subject is kind of interesting so far, but I just hope I can retain it! 

Last Friday night I caught up with a friend for dinner and drinks in the city. And nooooo when I say a 'friend' I literally mean a friend - considering I've been such a hermit lately there are no men in sight haha. But anywho back on topic, so I catch up with my friend, and we went for a few drinks first at Campari House. It was so noisy, I was the old person saying "what" "I miss that first part" "huh?!"... So after one drink we were out (plus I was starving!). We went to this cool pizza place on Little Bourke called 39 Pizzeria. Am I late on the bandwagon for this place, I thought it was so tasty! I am going to go back because I want to try some of the stuff the people on the table across from us were woofing down hehe.

Tuesday night I finally got to Myer to get my brows done. I can never just book same day at the brow bar anymore, its kind of frustrating for me because I'm such a last minute person now especially because of the extra travel I do. I often just book things same day depending on how I feel. But Tuesday was all good, tinted and shaped, happy days. While I was in Myer I thought I'd go for a wander, and they had this super cute dress on sale at 30% off. Turns out the mid season sale was starting the next day so I was lucky to pick up it up early! 

Wayne by Wayne Cooper - Pocket Posies Bind Detail Dress

I just looked this up and its not a sale item anymore! What sneaky little buggers hey.... well good for me, I scored the discount! haha 

Its one of my high school friends 30th Birthday coming up and the plan is to hijack her out of gtown and go for a dinner in the city. I remember domestic divinity going to trunk restaurant and saying how good it was... has anyone been there recently? 

Yay its grand final weekend, which means the days will get longer and the weather only gets better from here. I really hope the Hawks win... only because I can't stand Freo! and you gotta go for the Victorian side if your a Victorian don't you? hehe 

Have a great weekend y'all :)
