Lollipops and skirtage.

17 September 2008

So the master plan has been put into action for this year. Job=check! I sent out applications to both retail and admin jobs and only the retail responded. I start sometime next week which is great. Next on my list getting hold of a marketing internship which I should be able to fit in around work and would look great on my CV.

Apart from using the money from this job to fund postgraduate study I want to buy a few things that I've been wanting for a while! First of all...I want a new mp3 player. Possibly the Ipod Touch. I have been using my very dated analogue Sony mp3 player for the past 4 years and it's beginning to give up on me. Maybe it is time I jumped onto the Ipod bandwagon!
I am also on the hunt for more skirts especially the tulip shaped ones but you can't walk into a store without eyeing up all the plaid skirts. I like the Luella inspired one from Urban Outfitters.
My grandparents and aunts all arrived this morning and they came bearing gifts! I am glad that they don't take any notice of my age and still buy me really cute presents! They got me the cutest lollipop mirror which is essentially a mirror on a stick. It's great. They also got me some make up from Japanese make up brand Kesalan Patharan in the form of a little eyeshadow trio and a glittery blue nail polish. Too bad the mirror is a bit too conspicuous to put in my bag, it's tempting though.

  1. Those gifts are adorable. I admit I was attracted to the mirror right away, wondering what it was.

    I hope you are able to get all the things on your list; a new .mp3 player is certainly important!

  3. Tulips skirts look beautiful on any shape so those are definates for any wardrobe :) I like the full circle one that you featured the most. The plummage-like-look at the end is adorable.

    I wish my relative bought over yummies when they visited lol. I hope you find your perfect new mp3 soon :)

  11. You don't have an ipod?!?!?!? I think it's time that you cross-over and join the dark side :)

    Are you planning on carrying the lollypop mirror in your handbag, because I suspect that you'll need to add new handbag to your shopping list?

  13. All those skirts are really cute. That's some lovely draping detail on the Full Circle one, I love the colours of the Philip Lim and Topshop ones and the print on the Urban Outfitters one is fab!

    Lucky you getting presents from your relatives! The lollipop mirror is too cute.

    Thanks for your comment. I'm currently running a contest on my blog to win a $25 gift certificate from a lovely online boutique. Hope you'll check it out!

    Have a great day tomorrow :)
