in honour of the start of ruddbucks season today, this week’s wednesday want will focus on the things i plan on buying with my $900, as well as the things i wish i was buying. a mix of the practical and the unnecessary.
first up is new sneakers. i already have the nike+ipod running thing, so now i want the sneakers to go with it. i currently have the sensor attached to the laces of my asics sneakers, and it works fine, but i feel like i’m cheating a bit. i want to get the nike sneakers with the pouch in the sole for the sensor to fit in, so i plan on purchasing these:
next up is some new black flats for work. ideally, i want these, but i suspect i’ll end up getting some less fancy.
i also need some boring things like a 1TB external hard drive, but i’ll spare you the pictures.
happy ruddbucks, everyone!
i have a rather large collection of clutches and purses. they’re just so practical and versatile. who wants a big heavy big when you can take just the bare essentials? plus, when you go out for dinner it just fits right on the table, instead of trying to keep it safe between your feet.

i already have one of these in various shades of yellow, and i can’t recommend them enough.

i can’t help it, i’m totally obsessed with yellow at the moment. i just love the combination of yellow and grey that i’m seeing pop up in so many places. grey is so dreary, it’s basically the coloursonification (not a word, i know) of winter. and, well, i hate winter. but yellow! yellow is sunshine and light and warmth and all things that are good in the world.
i first noticed yellow + grey together a few months ago, when i saw kikki k had a whole range of the two colours together.
now that i think about it, i can probably trace my yellow love back to about september last year, when i was looking at furniture to purchase when i moved. i found this hemnes linen cupboard from ikea, and was instantly smitten.
i still haven’t been quite able to justify the $429 price tag, so for now, my apartment is without this cupboard. but one day, one day, i will own this. ok, so there’s no grey, but there’s plenty of yellow.
what do i love more than yellow? elephants! from etsy seller ellabellamay.
and finally, this. i’ll just take this whole room please.
i love that wallpaper, and the chair, and the rug, and the high ceiling and the big windows, and the… just all of it.
technically it is now thursday, but i’ve spent all night prettifying the blog and didn’t get a chance to do this earlier.
i introduce to you a new, and hopefully regular, section: wednesday want. basically, i post pretty things! yay! on wednesdays, if i remember.
it’s getting colder. summer is winding down, the mornings are getting chilly, i find myself drinking more tea than normal. so my very first wednesday want will be all about how much winter sucks, and the few little things we can do to make those horrid months just a bit more enjoyable.
tea itself is already quite enjoyable, but can you imagine how much more fun it would be with a pretend moustache? want want want. from etsy seller breadandbadger.
i’m currently in love with yellow, and this scarf would look gorgeous with the fabulous winter coat i plan on buying this season (yet to be determined). from etsy seller beautifulbridget.
is it wrong that peter alexander is my favourite australian designer? he’s fantastic. it’s all about comfort, luxury, and being completely affordable. love it. to be honest, i could have picked any pair in the store, but i really love the various pink and purple shades in these. from peter alexander.
i would be very surprised if i ever wore these, but i think they’re simply adorable and would love to own them. does that make sense? i guess they’re not really my type, and not something i would normally wear, but i can’t stop wanting them. from etsy seller stopsandstarts.
i’m after a bright coat for this winter. i’ve got my eye on a few in blue and purple, but would really love a gorgeous mint green coat, if anyone can find one. can you tell i watch too much gossip girl? but this grey jacket, i adore. and how nice would it look with the yellow scarf above. ahhh, WANT. from witchery.
