In the dressing room – Target

 Last Wednesday, I had some time to spare before meeting up with the wonderful Omega, so I decided to duck into Target and have a look around. I have to say, Target has really stepped up their game. While I didn’t get around to the plus size section, I fell in love with many items from the straight sizes.

Fit & Flare floral skirt - $40 | Floral Panel Top – $25 | I actually really loved the matching top and skirt together, but I don’t feel that fit & flare skirts really suit me. The skirt is in a skuba like material and super comfortable. These were both tried on in a size 18 and the shirt was oversized.

Cropped Pink Jumper – $30 | Cropped everything is in fashion, and I’m LOVING it! This jumper was super comfy, it was a size 18 and a little big around the chest, but fit my arms good. It would certainly fit someone with bigger boobs better. It comes in many colours too, like this awesome neon lime!

Striped Crop Top – $30 | LOVED this, but I probably would have preferred it if it was a size larger. It was a size 18 but very fitted.

Leather Look Panel Top – $30 | Oversized leather look top, only the front is that material, the back is a stretchy light material. The jumper on the right is what I nearly bought, only to realise, I couldn’t reallllly afford it. It was super comfy, I mean SUPER comfy, and warm, plus it had a cute bunny on it!

Have you picked up anything awesome lately?

Outfit of the Easter Show

I wanted something comfy to wear to the Easter show, something that I knew I could walk around all day in and not worry about it moving too much. The weather was overcast, but not overly cold, it did drizzle a couple of times, but otherwise it was a great day to go.

Easter Show!

For those who don’t know, every year, Sydney holds the ‘Royal Easter Show‘. I usually try and go every few years. The last time I went was 2 years ago with my Mum & Nephew, we went of an afternoon/night and had fun with all the rides. You can see the post here. This year, I realised i’ve grown old, as all I wanted to do was walk around alllll the pavilions and look at the animals!

It really is HUGE, I only probably went around 65% of it and I was there around 5 hours. Luckily the weather was nice and it only drizzled for a small amount of time.

As a huge animal lover, I love going around and seeing allll the animals. I missed out on the cattle, horses and cats, but got to see all the others. I learnt that trying to take a selfie with a goat was hard, and looked very silly, I got a few comments whilst doing it!

I never knew turkeys were so ugly! I don’t mean to be insult turkeys, but they are not the prettiest animals around!

I took a video of this feeding frenzy, which you can see here!

 This year I was super excited because they had a dinosaur exhibit! SOOOO COOL!

Of course, it wouldn’t be the Easter Show without a dagwood dog! I swear they tasted better when I was younger.

I desperately fell in love with the Mad Hatter porcelain doll and the Yoda cake was awesome, I wouldn’t want to eat it!

 And of course, the dogs! I was secretly hoping that the dog my boyfriend and I want to purchase in the future would be there on that day, but they aren’t showing until the 16th. I did go a little gaga over the Afghans, Deer Hounds and Foxhounds.

I love dogs, and i’ve spent a whole lot of time reading about different breeds, yet I’d never heard of a Deerhound before. I had heard of a Elk hound though. They are HUGE and sooo gorgeous. I’m not usually one for wirey haired dogs, but I think i’d make an exception for these guys. The Afghan on the right made me want to photoshop her into a car with some large glasses! It amused me how they had their ears tied up as to not mess them up for their showings.

So pretttty!

And my actual lunch on the day! This was a pulled pork and coleslaw pizza sandwich. It was delicious! I was really happy this year that there was so much variety in the food. Usually there was junk, junk and more junk, but this year there was a lot of healthy sandwhich, rolls and wraps as options. Though super expensive!

Does where you live have any kind of show/festival during the year?
