The other day I got home in the rainy spring weather, checked the mailbox and found an express post parcel in there. It sparked my curiosity because I haven't been online shopping much recently because I'm saving for something special. I couldn't figure out where it had come from. Without checking the sender, I grabbed a pair of scissors and opened it up. I reached into the package and pulled out a bright red cardigan, with my initials embroider on the front in navy thread.

Does anyone else jump onto a website, load things into their shopping cart, decide they have felt all the things they needed to feel and then exit without completing the order? I do this often, and I know it says something about how shopping for me isn't just about what I buy, it's about the feels I get during the experience. I've actually been curbing my spending habits all year and a big part of that has been identifying if I need to buy something or if I just want that feeling of buying it.

Spring has arrived in Ballarat and with it has come blossoms and seemingly endless rain. This week we were hit with one of the worst storms in around 50 years. Luckily for us we didn’t get the full intensity it delivered to South Australia, where the power for the entire state was knocked out. At any rate, it’s inspired hundreds of people to check out the nearby waterfall called Lal Lal Falls. We went and had a look.

Earlier this evening my sister Goldfields Girl and I dropped into the opening night of The Lip Lab in Ballarat. The Lip Lab is a magical place where you can custom build your own lipstick. I'm not someone who's very into lipstick, but if there's one thing I've learned from this evening, my interest is clearly based on how much control I have over the creation process. You want nude? Bam! A warmed tone of nude? Bam! Matte or gloss? BAM! Cinnamon flavour? BOOM. That is literally the process for how my own personalised lipstick came together.
