It's almost the end of my working year.
Semester is over, exams have finished and the party season is in full swing. The Vice Chancellor's Christmas cocktail bash always marks the end of 'work' and the start of 'r&r'
These past few weeks have seen a lot of events. This weekend we went to a Bollywood themed party:
We also hosted a dinner party here. I forgot to take photos, but a good time was had by all, I hope.
This week is looking a bit calmer, with only one drinks party mid-week, and two at the weekend.
In the spirit of the festive season, here's what's on my gift wishlist.
Andeol scarf, from http://www.andeol.com.au/
Emilie Cacace is a local designer who prints her divine designs on thick and wonderful silk - they are beautiful pieces and the prices aren't too insane. I'm hoping to get this one:
Also on my list is some scent from Miller Harris. I'd be happy with either Citron Citron, Fleur Oriental or La Fumee (or all three!):
Finally, I'm hoping for a Diptyque candle in Feu de Bois, as last year's one has finally run down. I love this scent; it really does smell like fire wood. Shame both the candle and the Miller Harris scent is so $$$ in Australia!
A few outfits, mainly blue last week.
Acne dress, Senso sandals. Wolford top, J Crew skirt, Cos cardigan and L'Autre Chose sandals. Gary Bigeni skirt, Wolford top, J Crew cardigan and APC sandals.
My summer uniform this year is predictable; it consists of a skirt + singlet + cardigan or a dress + cardigan. Thanks god for J Crew jackie cardigans is all I can say, as it seems there are no cardigans to be had in the whole of the antipodes!!!
This week I am going to tidy up work stuff, attend Christmas parties, finish my Christmas shopping, do some wrapping, source a tree and get my hair cut!
Oh, and clean the house. Maybe.
What's on your To Do list?
