Since Valentine's Day occured two days before my chemistry exam, the boy and I decided we would put off celebrating it until I had more free time. He did stop by on the day bearing energy drinks and a rose, which was the perfect gift for studious little me! (I passed with a distinction, by the way!)
We finally got around to going on a proper date last weekend - a picnic in the park, followed by checking out a Disney exhibition at the ACMI, and then hitting the town. The dress I'm wearing was his gift to me - isn't it lovely? I seriously am a sucker for any dress with a sash or cape on the back, I find them impossibly chic.
Oh, you might have noticed - I caved and got my hair cut short again! I like it much more this time than the last. It's a better length and can be styled appropriately for a variety of eras.
The ducks at the park were so friendly, with a bit of coaxing I had them eating crusts out of my hand! One of them thought he was too good for crusts and was eying off my sandwich before the boy alerted me in the nick of time.
We capped off the date in a suitably Mad-Men fashion with cigars and too many cocktails at our favourite bar, Madame Brussels. I don't smoke cigarettes but I will try from time to time the more unusual varieties, like apple flavoured tobacco in a shisha or a vanilla cigar.
I'm only two days back into uni and already the workload is building - so I'm going to draw the giveaway tomorrow or I'll never get it done. So sorry again for the delay and the radio silence - I hope you enjoyed seeing this little catch up! I do have a few more posts planned, and some great products I'd like to alert you to. Until next time~
