Tuesday and Wednesday in the shop

Tuesday was my first day back in the shop after the weekend - Monday (my day off) I spent the day around the City of Melbourne with MIL who snapped away at various landmarks with the alacrity of a Japanese tourist! She particularly liked the Circle Tram which is a great service in the city - an old fashioned tram which takes you around the CBD with a running commentary about interesting things to do and see.

Anyway, Tuesday was a miserable day weather wise and unfortunately not a huge amount of customers came in - however, amongst the sales were 2 candles (Diptyque ones - SO delicious) to Beyonce's PA....- she is in Melbourne this week. Apparently the star likes to burn both the Violette and Rose candles together - probably a beautiful combination I would imagine..... Tuesday I wore (above left) grey wool shift dress from Marks and Spencer (UK) with a white blouse underneath from a company called The Barn, little cropped black cashmere cardigan from Boden (UK) - black wolford tights and vintage shoes (Louis Vuitton) given to me by a dear friend....(oh and my special necklace from my dear Mr SE last birthday).
Today in the shop I wore (above right) my favourite Lounge Apparel dress again with the Lilith Top underneath (worn last week) and a little orange tie front cardi from Avoca - and my choc. brown wedge heeled boots again.....

The shop was much busier today and it was a run on books (sold a lovely one called Toujours Paris) and candles from both Diptyque and a company called Cire Trudon who are also French... They have been producing wax candles since 1643 so they definitely having been doing something right over the centuries!

Have not forgotten that I said I would put the recipe on here for the Orange, date and banana loaf - I thought (and also Mr SE did) that it was very tasty.... MIL did not comment though!! Ah well, you can't please all of the people all of the time...

Until next time....

  1. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm
    going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
