Happy Boxing day??

5 Reasons to avoid Boxing Day - It's weird, you would assume that Boxing day being the day after Christmas everyone would be in a pretty good mood...WRONG. I think Boxing day brings out the worse in people.

Here are some reasons why I'm turning anti-boxing day:
  • The Carpark - people yelling and cursing at each other over who took whos carpark. 
  • Inside the shopping centre - people are pushing and shoving like it's the end of the world. The stuff isn't even that cheap I don't see the need to push people out of the way.
  • There are not enough sales to go around for everyone - some people will just hog up everything.
  • When you do manage to find something in the messy piles, the line to pay is like 10x longer than the time it took you to decide on it.
  • Notice how it encourges a lot of impulse buys?

    Christmas Eve & Sangria time!

    Merry Christmas everyone!!! I know i'm a day late and HAPPY BOXING DAY LADIES! Going to head out to Chaddy soon.

    My family likes to celebrate Christmas on the Eve, as usual we had too much to eat. I saw on taste they had a Sangria recipe so we decided to make it... boy was it strong lol after two glasses I was feeling really tipsy. The recipe makes about two jugs, so we had to finish that! It tasted really yummy.. a lot better than what's in restaurants. If you don't have the drinks/ingredients at home it is a little expensive. I got Cointreau in Safeway for $40 & two bottles of sparkling Shiraz for $20 plus caster sugar and fruits so all up it would cost you $65.

    Dinner was a mix of food - we had pasta, spring rolls, fried chicken and chicken/beef skewers lol My mum also bought a Christmas log cake thingy but no one in my family really likes cake so it was all up to me to eat it. If the cake was not enough we also had an apple pie to finish!!

    My sister got me matryoshkas measuring cups, they are heaps cute. I've seen them around but never thought I needed them but bonus that my sis got it for me. I normally like to guesstimate when cooking never used any measuring cups probably explains why no one wants to eat my food lol

    Finished up early at work today and I stopped by Pilgrim to check out any sales and it just so happens they have 40% off reduced prices. I picked up a Vacation skirt for $29, rrp. $99.95. It makes me look kinda wide but hey for $29 can't go wrong.

    Secret Santa & Amazing Race - Team building exercise

    Yesterday at work we had our team day as well as our secret santa! Our team activity was the amazing race. We had to run around Melbourne trying to find clues to get to our final destination.. man it was exhausting, all this running around just proves how unfit I am. I was sweating like a maniac!! We were doing it for 2hrs and I felt like giving up, i dunno how those guys on tv do it lol

    One of the extra point activities we did was to find a place on Bourke St and sing Jingle Bells and try to get 5 randoms to sing along as well.. lol We were lucky, we approach 5 kids who were willing to sing along and we also had to get a stranger to film it for proof. This one was tough as I am not the type of person who likes public speaking and here I am singing in public!! On a positive note, our team came second out of 10 teams!!

    When we got to our final destination (on Southbank) and we did our secret santa! The present I received was a moisteriser & hand wash set, must admit I am lucky with KK. Most of the time I seem to receive pretty good presents. This set is really handy to have around in the bathroom and will be definitely used. Big thank you to you my lovely secret santa!

    December purchases

    Went to Chaddy the other night and picked up this dress from pilgrim. They had a further 30% off already reduce stock, worked out costing around $98 - not exactly a bargain but needed a dress for a wedding coming up.

    Also stopped by Moche on Saturday and picked up this funky ring - looks like a safety pin wrapped around your finger.
