Through the wonderful Sydney Shop Girl I have made a fantastic new online discovery. Victoria's Secret. I never knew they did anything other than underwear, but they do! Yay! And with the Aus dollar being so strong against the US dollar it is very, very cheap. Even with the fairly high postage. My rule with high postage is to buy a few items to even it out a bit on the per item basis. The Farmer thinks this may be a somewhat dubious concept in economical terms...
So, anyway, after reading of SSG's experiences with Victoria's Secret I could hear my laptop calling me. I hopped online and found a wonderland of swimwear. Eventually after doing some sizing research I ordered a "tankini" which is just a singlet type top and bottom. It arrived a few days ago and I must say I am really impressed.
The quality is amazing and, even including the postage, they were still cheaper than a similar item in Australia. This was without using my" buy several things to lessen postage" rule.
I love it when I find a good internet bargain...
In other quick news, we had Farmboy's cousins around for his birthday earlier in the week. It was very small soiree and there was only four children. They had an ice cream cake and played non stop on a slippery slide on the front lawn of The Beach House. It was very simple but Farmboy told me it was his "best birthday yet".
Here are a few photos.
