Shopping Heyday!

Apparently, when traveling to another country,
it is necessary to restock of many fun items.
This translates to me having a HEYDAY shopping for my trip!!!


From a new carry on bag for the 29 hr plane adventure

to a dress to tour Sydney .....

And I am on the hunt for a satchel to navigate my way through the city.  I just purchased from Target.com, and now sure which one I will pick, if any, depending on the straps and material.

This navy one
This yellow one
This brown one

The goal is for my hands to be completely free so I can hold my ...
NEW CAMERA 
that will always be remembered 
for documenting the Land Down Under!


The last week has been spent trying to learn, learn, and better learn this fancy thang'.  The Panasonic FZ35 is my new prized possession, haha, I would carry this out with me around my neck if my home was to catch on fire!  I love it that much :)

Now, I need to get under better control.

Cute bags! I especially love that yellow carry-on bag. It reminds me that I need to find a cute teacher bag for this year!

Beth said...

I have a purse problem, so clearly, I would keep all three, and potentially even try to take all three on the trip.... but that would just be me. I would probably end up leaving at least one at home. :) CAN'T wait to see pictures!

Half the fun of traveling is getting new clothes to go along with the adventure. What a great camera! I can't wait to read more about your trip Down Under. We had a good friend that lived and worked in Sydney for a few years and absolutely loved it! We now have a friend in Brisbane. Have fun and safe travels girl! Better you than me...don't know what I'd do with a 29 hr. plane ride! :)

Enjoy your trip! Every vacation needs a little shopping splurge because hey, after all, you'll be photographing tons of pictures and you want to make sure you look good in them as well. Completely rationalized!
