It’s been months since the last time I did a window shopping update. I actually didn’t really do much window shopping at all over the summer but recently I started browsing again in the search of two very specific things and of course I ended up finally lots of things that I need.
First up I wanted a new dog leash for Boomer – specifically one designed for running with your dog. I read a load of reviews and finally settled on the Stuntpuppy one above. I’m about to start training for a second half-marathon and Boomer is finally old enough to run with me consistently so he’s going to be my running buddy on the shorter runs.
I’ve also been on the lookout for some brown boots for autumn winter. I have a great pair of black boots that I picked up last year but they’re very stiff boots – I’d love a pair of soft brown leather boots but I want them to be faux leather….so far they’re proving elusive but this pair is a contender for sure.
I got my first knitting commission – as in someone is actually going to pay me to knit something for them and it’s the perfect excuse to use this beautiful extra thick and chunky Malibrigo yarn in a lovely autumn colour.
I’ve been considering doing a capsule wardrobe – I’ve seen quite a few people on blogs I follow doing it; the idea is that you pare down your wardrobe to a limited number of pieces you love to wear for a 3 month season and packup/donate etc the rest of the clothes. The only problem is that I don’t have the space to store clothes anywhere other than my wardrobe but I think I’ll use it as an excuse to get rid of the clothes I no longer wear and pick up a few new pieces like this lovely silk top and some new accessories like the copper bangles.
I want a rug for my bedroom, but I've been stuck for months on how to decorate the bedroom, so stuck that I havne't done a single thing except hang curtains and a few pics on the wall. That needs to change because it's the only room in the house that feels undone.
I love this card….it’s perfect for any occasion! If you know me in real life you might just get this for your next birthday!
