Trip update- purchases!

Slack slack slackity slack. 

Between catching up on random assorted admin that needs to be done ASAP when you are away for 6 weeks, being at a food exhibition that work is sponsoring and eating my way through cake samples all day and seeing friends that all seem to be moving overseas soon (sob) I have had zero time to blog. 

I am going to do my corporate best and break my updates into achievable goals. Today, purchases!

My idea to go mental with shopping overseas didn't happen. I bought some cute stuff and am happy with it all but my suitcase was nowhere near full if that sums it up. Oh wells. Not going back to Greece at the end was a big factor, I had a few things pegged to buy that I didn't want to drag around islands. So most of what I came back with were really safe purchases. Guess that's getting older.  

In that gigantor bag (that I sadly had to leave in London) is YSL Roady in black leather. Freaking love this thing. Had looked at it ages ago but decided it too grown up (for my irresponsible self) but Mr CB convinced me it was me all over. It's plain, classic and non it-bag-in-your-facey. Really comfy to hold, even when choc full of crap. Lots of comments on it already but no one knows what it is. Love that!
Primark green 6 pound top worn with. 
Mulberry wallet. Was really disappointed with the Mulberry bags in the UK. Everyone has one. But it's as though the new season stuff has just been churned out and is not very good quality. Oh wells, this wallet was the perfect size for me and I love that it's not black. 

Primark leopard scarf, Turkish cotton towels (ended up with a few more after these) and Greek gangster/ South American drug lord/ Jim-Carey-in-the-Mask white Panama hat. A necessity when it's 40+ every day.

 
Tod's suede loafers, Theory khaki shirt. We stumbled upon a designer sample sale on the way to Brick Lane one day and sadly the shirt was all I bought. Super cheap Vivienne Westwood, Paul & Joe etc but nothing was 'right'

Joseph navy shirt dress


Looking at these pics this stuff is so out of the norm of what I'd normally buy but I am already getting use out of it all. There are a few other Zara, Primark, Topshop bits and pieces but these are my faves. We bought a few 'homey' things, including the best best best 1900s silver claw tongs that I'll use in an ice bucket. 

I really think shopping in Australia is ruined for me forever. I have DJs vouchers, a staff discount to use and I still don't want to pay their cray cray prices.
