I did 95% of my Easter shopping on Sunday - when everything was half price at Kmart and Woolworths - before we popped over to celebrate with my partners' family. I think we also spent about $15 on ourselves, which doesn't sound like much, but I think everything was pretty much under $2! Chocolate for a month, at least (well, we'll see, but I am already sick of it and I've barely started - good sign)!
As I have previously mentioned, I do not like to spend a lot of money. Saving to buy a home is constantly on my mind, so spending money on clothing and expensive foods seems frivolous and not worth it in the long run. A lot of people don't understand this and ask why I don't want to be happy. I explain that I am very happy. I can buy the things I need, and if there is something I REALLY want, it is attainable.
Having said that, however, I have a wishlist. This wishlist includes all of the things that I would love to have, but I just do not want to pay the price for. I call it my Things-I-Want-But-Will-Probably-Never-Own list. Not all of them are necessarily exorbitantly-priced, but sometimes just too high for what they are. Here is a glimpse of that list!
Swarovski Ginseng bangle in Mint.
With an RRP of around $700 in Oz, this one was not happening when it was released a few years ago. Now it is hard to find, and still priced at around $400. I'd also be wary, as I've never tried it on. Bangles are tough to buy, as my small hands and wrists are more keen to throw them off, than to display them, if I don't keep my hand splayed out - which is neither comfortable, nor a good look. I've noticed a lot of women have this problem. Bangles always need sizes, just like clothes!
Sort and the City Desk Organiser from Modcloth
Most gorgeous desk accessory ever. I'd probably use this at home, my desk at work is pretty full as it is! It's sold out at Modcloth at the moment, but usually retails for $29.99. That plus the ~$20 shipping is just too much. Maybe I can convince the boyfriend to make a similar one... I'd love to see how that would turn out!
It could end up completely overdone and look this actual picture of Cairo by graspnext (blog no longer available) or it would turn out gorgeously, like these stationery holders from muji.us. However, my bet would be on the end-result looking like this:

Yep, that looks about right.
The Givenchy skirt featured in this post of mine. So divine!
Prada Saffiano & Louis Vuitton Alma in Epi Leather.
Saffiano - not sure what kind yet, but the one above is pretty perfect. I'd probably end up with a black one though! The same for the Alma, I think. I guess if I got the Alma in black, I really should get something a bit different in the Saffiano...
I currently own zero designer goods (apart from my Prada glasses, but do they count?) so I am trying to pick at least one bag to buy this year. To reward myself for being awesome, obviously.
Well I'll leave it at that for now, save some for another time!
