T-Rex hates Push-ups

Now that I'm growing my hair out again (this time last year, it was a chin-length asymmetric bob), I'm having so much fun experimenting with updos. In particular, I think I'm addicted to sock buns (so easy for rushed mornings!).

After much deliberation, I decided to get over-sized black-rimmed glasses, just for the hell of it...

In the middle of a completely crazy week, I managed to meet up for lunch with three of my oldest friends (going way back to our first days at varsity!). It's always awesome to get together, but our schedules are all so busy that we don't get to all get together nearly often enough. Nevertheless, we eventually had a great midweek lunch at Nook.
My very delicious Thai sesame chicken ciabatta, with coriander, tomato, rocket and avocado mayonnaise.
Quaint decor...

Saturday afternoon I headed to my parent's house for the night, so that I could go to Sunday morning mass with them. The weather took a (apparently temporary) chilly turn in the evening, so the best thing to do was to pull on warm pjs and get out the board games!
Kicking some ass at Scrabble...

After having my eye on this beautiful throw for ages, I finally could afford it thanks to some birthday gift card generosity. It's purple! And so unbelievably warm and soft (words cannot describe, only touch...)! Can't wait for more cold nights so that I can snuggle up in bed under this...

More birthday gifts... Grey wool beret from the parentals...

Grey scarf with pink and purple butterflies from Mom...
The beautiful tag (it's from Poetry)...

Book from Mom, in case I need a break from all the chemistry reading...
Clear lamp with purple shade for my new room... (goodbye old desk lamp, hello beautifulness!)
One of the richest body lotions I've tried in a while... (part of a whole pamper set from the chemistry birthday club, with some vouchers for Exclusive Books, so more shopping in my future :) yay!)
My birthday orchid is receiving much love and care, and nearly all the buds have now opened up :)

Combining my love for Spongebob and geekiness...

(Looking at all my birthday presents, almost all of them are purple, pink or grey. My friends and family "get" me. So much love for you all!)

In recent purchases, my favourite clay mask has been discontinued, so I'm looking forward to trying out this one (yay for the Woolies sale!)...

Best new lipstick I've bought in ages. It's "Amethyst Shimmer" from Rimmel - the pigmentation is beautifully intense and lasts for ages, plus it goes really well with my skin tone :)
My mom and I went shopping for flowers and herbs for on my balcony...
My "T-Rex hates pushups" tee finally arrived in the mail! (For the record, things take forever to get from the US to Africa...) I love it so much! (Ask people who know me, I have a thing for T-Rex jokes...)
