I am not sure if it is the heat or just general stress but I had a mid-week mini meltdown yesterday. I was bad tempered, sluggish and very unmotivated. I didn't post anything for that very reason. I just took the day to rant and vent and by the evening, I was back to my normal self again! Tantrum over. Normal service resumes.
In other news, I have been doing a fair bit of research on Australia's retail therapy scene and have discovered some alarming but also some seriously exciting stuff. Alarming: everything is expensive. As in really expensive (but I am told once you start earning $$ it evens out). Alarming: there is no Amazon. This is dire. Most alarming of all: there is NO H&M!!!!! (Although after some investigation, it seems there will be one in Sydney next year, when I will no doubt be deep into withdrawals). Exciting: they have Target! Exciting: the have Ikea! Most exciting of all: they have Pottery Barn and West Elm! And just like that, all is right in my world! I spent ages on Pottery Barn's website on Saturday, just ogling and sighing. I couldn't resist putting together a selection of my favourite outdoor items.
P.S - Calling all Australians (or those in the know): I'd love to hear more about life in Australia from you. Where to shop, eat and hang out etc. Since this will be my first time in Australia (crazy I know), I am desperate for insider knowledge.
