The Blisters are Back

So it's been a pretty busy weekend. A very tiring one indeed. Had a day of shopping with my lovely sisters on Friday. And we literally shopped until we dropped. I'll fill you in on purchases in MyStyle/$pent soon. Then Saturday was Netball (which we won) and then a local ball which was fantastically awesome fun with some of my girlfriends. and then I had to be up at the crack of dawn to get on a train to get back for a hens day, which was rather relaxing at a day spa type thing. But yes, rather an exhausting weekend that was jam packed. I definitely struggled in class on Monday. Nearly needed toothpicks by mid afternoon.

Definitely have some pretty good blisters to prove just how awesome a Saturday night was had! back to the band-aids!

Maroon 5 have recently put out a new single. Moves Like Jagger. Christina Aguilera features in it also. It's pretty good! Very catchy. Have a listen. It's even hit number one on iTunes over Adele! Pretty excited to hear what they release next! So keen for a new album from them.

Was listening to Lily Allen today. Reminded me how fantastic her music is. Especially love her It's Not Me, It's You album. Just love every track. Also takes me back to when I also had the first Twilight film soundtrack and it on repeat together. When I get more than one new album at a time I tend to put all the albums in a playlist together and just drench myself in them on shuffle. Sometimes it's an odd mix. Like at the moment with Paramore, Seeker Lover Keeper and The Script all in one playlist together. When it goes to Paramore it's such a switch in tempo and style. I still love it though.

In the gym, while on the treadmill the last few days I keep seeing this album cover in one of their ads on Channel V for Joe Brooks, the cover looked pretty cool so naturally I made a mental note to check him out. He actually sounds quite good. The album is pretty much a year old though. He reminds me a bit of James Blunt so if you're into him maybe give this guy a listen. I literally just listened through a few of his tracks just now and this is my first impression. They're pretty chilled kind of tunes.

So I've just seen the new ad for Packed to the Rafters! Just a little bit keen for it to come back. Looks so awesome! Also saw the "sneak peak" for Wild Boys which Zoe Ventoura (Mel on Packed to the Rafters, RIP) and Daniel McPherson will be in! Bit keen to check that one out too! Looks a bit exciting. If you haven't heard about it, it's supposed to be a "bushranger drama" (sounds odd) set in the 1800s. Hoping it's better than Winners and Losers. I'm finding myself looking forward to the series being finished. But I feel like I need to keep watching it because I should at least finish off the series. Definitely missing Offspring! Nothing good on TV at the moment as far as drama goes.

I think the Renovators is pretty cool(I'm also in love with their logo, though haven't been watching it religiously or anything. And it's a bit sad MasterChef is nearly finished. Was totally sad to see Dani go tonight! Don't think I really mind who wins of the three that are left. They all seem deserving enough.

In other news I almost feel shopped out, sounds impossible I know! But I've been shopping a lot in the last three weeks and still haven't found a dress for an upcoming wedding. Soooo..... not quite sure how to solve my problem. I feel like I've been everywhere and not found something.... well, something in my budget anyway! So more shopping later in the week I believe... Oh well. a girl can never really shop too much. Right?
