What wonderful weather in Melbourne today! I'm so ready for Spring! This has been my first full winter in Melbourne since 2011 and I'm so over it... I'm mainly sick of my winter wardrobe - I hate winter fashion.
This past week has been a very economical one for me. Rode to work, packed my lunches, and didn't go out for any midweek dinners.
Yesterday at work they had a manicure station set up in the office with all the Mecca Cosmetica nail colours and their brand new products to assist in perfecting your nails. As a very impatient nail painter, my favourite product is the Ready Set Quick Dry Nail Mist - the name speaks for itself.
The Polished Up Mani-Pedi Perfector is also a tool I need in my life... For when you get nail polish on your skin around your nails (ie. every time).
From midday yesterday, the design team went on an excursion to visit various stores and showrooms participating in Melbourne Indesign - more relevant to interior designers than graphic designers, but it's always good to be exposed to other areas in design.
All these places we visited were excellent hosts... We got so much free food and drinks, heh.
... and napkins!
So many sweet treats! This is just a snippet of how spoilt we were.
Visiting all these furniture showrooms made me wish I had my own place to decorate! ... But in reality, I feel like I'd be too poor to indulge in such things if I were to move out right now. I wish they sold more Muji furniture here... So stylish and affordable... I want my whole house to be Muji (including their BGM soundtracks!).
Had a very quiet Friday night at home. Had a flick through a couple of magazines I picked up at Melbourne Indesign. I quickly lost interest in Habitus with ads on every spread distracting me... But Alquimie was a beautiful publication, I spent some time admiring the layout design then gave it to my brother who appreciates quality alcoholic beverages (being a part-time bartender).
Looks like this weekend will be a peaceful one. A quiet week is a good week IMO.
P.S. I would really appreciate it if people would quit being nice to me only when they want something from me... Lately a bunch of people I barely know have been in contact asking for favors ... and to be honest, ceebs.
