Life in Photos: August

Can you believe it's almost September, which means Winter is almost over and before we know it Summer and Christmas will be here (my favourite time of the year!). How the year has flown by so quickly!

Anyway, I've been a bit boring of late and haven't found any new things on NAP that I'm dying for so unfortunately no updates on that front but since arriving home from my holiday I've been busy catching up with friends and eating out to keep warm.

Last week I went to bangbang, a popular and very cute cafe in Surry Hills which I've been wanting to try for ages. It didn't disappoint at all and not only were there heaps of options, the prices were just right. I had the corn fritters - amazing!

I also visited one of my fave cosy and intimate chocolate shops in Sydney - boon chocolate in Darlinghurst. I haven't been in ages and the night I went was one of those cold Winter nights so perfect for a catchup with a friend over chocolate! They do a very decadent hot chocolate with chocolate mousse and chocolate accompaniment.

Yesterday I had to pick up my sister's watch from repairs so was fashioning the double watch look. Oops blurry pic I know.

Meanwhile, my shoe cupboard situation is getting way out of hand. I can't even get to my clothes anymore (there are shoe boxes so it's all double stacked at the moment) so I need to rectify this ASAP! I think I see a Winter job on my hands! Perhaps I should actually look into shoe storage a bit more since I can't quite fit or afford some of the options I posted about a few weeks back.

Does anyone else use the colder Winter months to do a bit of a pre-Spring clean and tidy?


  1. OOhh, What kind of shoe storage you thinking of?
    I have my heels in bookcase :)

  2. I have heard Ikea Billy Bookcases work well so I think I might contemplate that! Otherwise I'm thinking of clearing some other clothes and things to make space ;)

  3. Hi there, I have the IKEA Billy bookcases with doors as my shoe storage solution - and it's perfect. Remember to buy extra shelves so more shoes can fit in ;)
