I succumbed and went out today. But it took me a long time to really really make a decision whether I should go out or not.
Reason #1 : I've been using my housemate's kettle all this while and I've been on my green tea kick right so I depend on her kettle ONLY. Lately, she was ill so she had her kettle upstairs because she couldn't be bothered to come up and down every time she needed hot water and ever since, she's had it upstairs in her room. So my green tea fix was put on hold. I thought it was just going to be a day but then it went on for 3 days and then 5 and then 2 weeks?!?!?! I can't go more than 2 days without green tea so I thought it was a bit ridiculous that I didn't have my own kettle. So that was my reason #1.
Reason #2 : It was sunny and gorgeous outside. It's rather odd, to be honest. It's already November but it's still nice and so warm but I hope this will go on til the rest of winter lah because it's so lovely to not be shivering to my bones. So I asked myself, "What if this is the last sunny day out???" and I thought I needed some sunshine anyway (I've been cooped up at home eating Fredo chocolates, seriously, it's quite disgusting ok) (as I type this out, I'm reaching out for Fredo chocolates which I've strategically placed on my bedside table) (all 3 packets of them) (each packet got half dozen) (so that's 18 pieces of Fredos) (help please).
Reason #3 : I was out of my favourite facial wash from Lush. And I had no more cotton buds. And my body soap was running out. AND I GOTTA STAY CLEAN, PEOPLE!
Reason #4 : I no longer had to rush to do my work because I was occupied with it the whole of last week and the due date, I just found out, has just recently been pushed for another 2 weeks and I'm already 3/4 done so phew! Figured I should give myself some break.
So I did. I was still unsure and I was pacing up and about after my shower and contemplating hmm should I or should I not? Sunny days or comfy bed with no make-up? But ooh I need more soap ahh but there's still a LITTLE bit left oh but wait cotton buds ala tapi can borrow from Selina hmmmm I miss green tea but umm I could just hold it out til Monday ?
I decided to go out. I needed to not feel like such a damn hermit and I should dress up a bit and leave the house to see the world and to see people. Put on Taylor Swift's 'Style' (it's really good!) and eventually I was done and ready to go out.
So I did get my kettle from Wilko and it's pretty in purple. And UK really has changed me because I left the store feeling so content and I wanted to hug it and I was so happy to get home to make me some green tea.
But all this obviously after an unnecessary detour to Primark. I don't even know why I bother with the amount of people that flood Primark on the weekends. But I haven't been in so long so thought I'd pop by and see what's new and not get anything......
...... um lol you'd think after 21 years of living, I'd know myself more right? Long queues ain't a problem when you find a bag like this...
Dude, seriously. HOW BEAUT!!! It's a baby pink crossbody bag but the strap is soooo long so I'm just going to carry it as a clutch. But when I saw this, I immediately grabbed it and then I saw it in black so...
And then I went into Lush and the smell my God! So overwhelming sometimes but I always get so rambang mata when I'm in there. But I was sensible enough and only got what I needed. Promise!
Ugh as if it's not enough that I already love Lush's products, now they have cute pink paper bags ugh love it
So only after Lush did I go into Wilko to get myself my very own kettle. Getting my priorities straight has never been my strongest trait.
