"Be Thankful" Tuesdays





Some of the small and big things I love and am thankful for

  • The opportunity to go on my first Organic Chemistry conference!
  • The chance to present a poster on my work, and give a short lecture :) (possibly one of the most terrifying things I've done in a while, but incredibly rewarding!)
  • My favourite everyday-go-to ballet flats finally being back in stock in my size! (It's always a mission finding size 3's) (Who cares if I have over a dozen of the same shoes? A girl needs all the different colours!)
  • The best things about coming home after a trip: (i) realising that your 14 hour bus ride is over (ii) getting to use your own shower again (iii) collapsing into your own bed
  • George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire". Loving these books SO much!
  • Breaking out of my comfort zone and trying out new fashion trends and colours, and finding things that actually look good on me! (Loving my new hot pink bodycon skirt - even though I thought I'd never ever be able to pull it off!)
  • Yummy red wine! (Yay for being back in Stellenbosch!)
  • New perfume :) (In case you catch me occasionally smelling my wrists - I promise I'm not a crazy person!)
  • My smartphone, which proved invaluable on the trip to Bloemfontein!
  • On that note, GPS! Best. Invention. Ever!
  • Fuzzy warm socks, perfect for cold autumn nights!
  • The "chalkboard" wall in my apartment 
  • My hair officially being beyond the awkward growing-out phase :)
  • My latest TV obsession: 30 Rock. Yes, Tina Fey is an icon. I love her. Also, Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy is sexy. No arguments.
  • Having to turn on the office heater last night for the first time this season. Winter is coming!
  • And the number one thing that I am thankful for this week:
  • LIVING IN THE FAIREST CAPE!!!
