Five Senses Friday

Tasting –
marshmallow slice (as seen above) and cupcakes from Sherbet, my new favourite cafe!

Hearing –
Brilliant local band, The Preytells and the new Sloan EP Hit and Run. I have a bit of a thing for the pop rock you see.

I also have a bit of a thing for deadly handsome, charismatic crooners. Meet Dan Sultan. And listen to the track Goddess Love. And then swoon.

Smelling –
My tomato plants which are currently sprouting nice fat green striped tomatoes. Which the nice fat green caterpillars love to munch on unfortunately.

Seeing
Travel brochures, hotel reviews and confirmation emails that we are off to Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi next year!

Feeling
Anxious about Christmas shopping. Not my own, but everyone else’s. My store relies on a good christmas period to make it though the quiet times. We need to get a LOT busier. And the last of my tee shirt orders from Slow Loris, FluffyCo and Squidfire need to arrive pronto!

Five Senses Friday

hearing
Need some pick-me-up tunes today so I’ve got the bright and sparkly brilliance that is Of Montreal spinning on the stereo.

tasting
We had an inside picnic today, say hello to cheese, cheese and more cheese.

seeing
I’ve had my eye on the postie, hoping today is the day he brings me this dress in a knee length version. Can’t wait to wear it!


feeling
A bit like a kid again. The boy is away until Sunday and my little sis is staying with me. Sisters are fabulous house guests. Lots of laughter and fun and snacks and tea and TV and good times.

smelling
Uh oh! I’m so naughty. I bought some new perfume. I am absolutely drawn to fragrances with an opoponax base and I picked up some Eau Lente by Diptyque without even trying it first. It’s quite spicy to me, it’s all clove and curry spices. Not as sweet as some of my other opoponax favourites like Imperial Opoponax from Les Neriedes. But it’s quite lovely and definitely a keeper.
