The Ascendants

I have a new bag! I was on the lookout for a higher end 'investment' bag to use when I wasn't carting around umbrellas and water bottles and tea flasks and Bible in my Longchamp Le Pliage Medium. I've wanted the Michael Kors Selma for a long time but now that every second girl on the street has one I can see how it wears (not as well as I'd thought) and I don't think I could part with that much money for a bag. I had spotted a gorgeous tote from Status Anxiety on Instagram's Suggested page once and regretfully I didn't see what it was called (and I still haven't found out what it was because it's not part of their current range) but when I was browsing their offerings this one caught my eye. I graduated from Colette by Colette Hayman bags to my Longchamp Le Pliage earlier this year when I got my first full-time job and it's been very good to me but it was time for something new. I ordered it on sale from Rushfaster and it came in a record 3 days(!) which made me very impressed by AusPost.

Brisbane Any Day

I haven't done a personal post in a while and I thought I'd post about what I've been up to- mostly been working and enjoying Brisbane in my spare time- little things like taking the ferry instead of the bus and eating at new places instead of our usual haunts.

My family had a Sunday picnic in the Mount Coot-tha Botanic Gardens and I brought my big girl camera along. We don't take many photos together...

September Favourites

Happy Long Weekend from Brisbane and our eccentric ways with public holidays! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT'S OCTOBER?! I've still caught myself writing 2015 on the tops of pages as recently as last month- and it's going to be 2017 in three months! I have a long overdue favourites post today, with some of these favourites dating back to (what would have been) my June favourites, but I've finally rounded them all up for a good old-fashioned monthly favourites post! I've been a bit busy with work and church and Bible Study Fellowship but thank God everything has been cruisey.
