The last time I did a post like this I think I referred to it as "my favourite things". So original, so creative, so totally stealing Oprah!
So this time I'm referring to it as here's what I found this time. Which is exactly what it is, stuff that I like that I think you might like too.
These jeans. I love these jeans. They were at GAP a couple of months ago. I bought the coral and I should have bought the pale blue at the same time - instead my sneaky friend Kirsty (I like all my friends to have the same name as me) went back and got the blue - and now there's none left. But all is not lost. I've just ordered a pair online and according to GAP and DHL they'll be here in a week. These jeans are comfortable, flattering and they make them big enough for me. They're called the skimmer legging jean if you're looking.
A couple of years ago my very lovely sister in law gave me the tip of adding a couple of drops of Tea Tree Oil to the bath to, ahem, keep things fresh. I took it a bit further and came back to Doha with roughly 20 bottles of this. I know I'm not the only one addicted to this stuff, I noticed it in my girlfriend's shower in Paris.
This morning I had a coffee with the lovely Jackie from The Bodyshop (Jackie and I met in the toilets of a Mall one day and struck up a chat, as one tends to do). She too agreed that tea tree oil was the miracle worker for ailments rhyming with crush. And then promptly marched me down to the store and gave me this to try.
The little bottle on the right is pure tea tree oil which is great for the bath. The bottle on the left is their bodywash which means I no longer have to import 20 bottles of shower gel from Oz each time I return to Doha.
The next winner of the week was the Tangle Teezer that I picked up at Boots pharmacy. The second little traveller has thick long hair and at times has attempted a hidden deadlock that would rival Bob Marley.
This thing is bliss. No complaints and she uses it herself. Except of course, when she has somehow managed to convince the third little traveller to do it for her. How does that work?? Notice his own unbrushed hair? Ever heard of treat em mean keep em keen. Exhibit 1:
And this. I'm a big lover of Instagram, and I wanted to print some of my shots and get them framed. I've just ordered my first poster from PosterCandy. It was $49 for a 70 x 100, all the sizes match with IKEA frames which is perfect for me as I can find a frame here or in Adelaide.
Okay, that's it for now. Anyone else found something they love?
*In the interests of full disclosure, I didn't receive a cracker for any of the above suggestions.
