I dream of Tokyo

I dream of Tokyo

So what’s with this Sydney weather? It feels a lot like inconsistent Melbourne weather to me. Hah. Today is supposedly going to reach a maximum of 26 degrees, did I mention it’s the middle of winter? Whaaaaat? Anyway. It makes dressing in the morning a nightmare.

Everyone I know seems to be overseas at the moment, so I’ve been running around tending to plants, taking out the trash, meal planning for my entire week. Who knew maintaining a household(s) on your lonesome could be so exhausting?

I’ve barely had much time to myself to do some crafting, but I did have some time to edit some of the cherry blossom photos I have from Tokyo. So delayed, but I’m keen to get some of these printed out and framed for the house.

Anyway. Happy Friday all!

Working beauty essentials

Working beauty essentials

I’ve never been really big into cosmetics, but since I started working I’ve come to learn what my ‘essentials’ are. There are the things I carry everywhere with me in my purse (to feature in another post), and there are things I leave at my work desk. Here are the three vital essentials that are always on hand in my workspace.

Workspace essentials

  1. L’Occitane Hand CreamThis was gifted to me, but the cherry blossom scent is so delicate and fragile, and it is hard NOT to use it. It is extremely moisturising and my cuticles love it.
  2. Vaseline Lip Therapy – A no brainer really. I did have a MAC SA tell me it was drying, but I can’t find anything else that soothes chapped lips (thanks central air conditioning) as well as Vaseline.
  3. Lucas’ Papaw Ointment – Something that e-v-e-r-y-b-o-d-y raves about. I use this personally on my dry skin. I have sensitive, eczema-prone skin and this works a treat. It’s really soothing.

What are the essential, must-haves on your work desk?
