Thank God thats over. This has been the looonnngest week ever. I had to keep telling myself over and over again today that it was actually Friday at last.

I started out this week with a part time job and a hopeful interview and.... I finished the week with 2 fantastic part time jobs. Yay!

Today was my first day in my next new job and what a great start when one of your new colleagues has left this on your desk for you.

So sweet.

Also today I got a brochure about a course in wedding planning that I requested a few days ago. Now to settle down for the evening and have a browse through it.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I Love Brogues, I do.

I love brogues. These pics are from our engagement shoot (I got mine first, he copied me. haha!) I just love them.

They're so comfy but they also look nice, two traits that so rarely go hand in hand.

I have 2 pairs at the minute. My almost 2 years old baby pink, Top Shop pair (they went with me to the O2 last year to RATM, below) and the lovely Office ones in our engagement pics. I'm thinking I need a new pair. My sister got a really nice pair in Penneys recently.

If I had the money I would 'invest' in these Mui Mui ones. I'm a total magpie when it comes to anything shiny.

Before I got the tan ones I considered them in this buff colour. I definitely need a heeled version too, hmmmm....

The Queen St. (Toronto) shoe shop, Get Outside, have these babys on their site at the minute. Must go in for a look.

Oh Alexa, you are so right.

I've been working with a temp agency since arriving in Canada. I've had some great placements but todays beats them all.

I working on the reception desk of the Ferrero Canada headquarters. This is the Ferrero of the Rocher fame.

If you didn't know the place was a chocolate company before going in you would know the minute you walked in the door. Its all creamy beiges, chocolate brown and gold leaf decor, with little towers of fake Ferrero Rochers where other companys would have boring old flower arrangements.

The people are so nice and I think I know why. They have your common or garden canteen for their lunch but they also have a separate coffee bar for their needs, including bar seating, an industrial size nespresso, a coffee grinder and a full on espresso machine. No wonder they're so happy.

They also have named their meeting rooms after chocolate so you could have a meeting in the Rocher room but the absolute best thing about spending the day in Ferrero is the goody bag they gave me when I was leaving!

Do you like my new menu banners in my side menu? Conor photoshopped them up for me at the weekend. I love them. I think they go really well with my banner and background.

Thank you Conor.
