Hello there everyone!

Finally I'm sitting here AND updating the blog! Cause, just the old sitting up in front of the laptop I do every day, but having the motivation to update the blog... that's quite another thing!

But today, aha! Today I have found the motivation! I still don't have my tripod (*grumble, grumble*) but today I got awesome goodies in the mail, and one of the parcels was quite awaited! How is it that a package from the UK can take longer to hop over the channel than a package to cross the whole Atlantic from the US? Postal services mysteries...

After my last vacation I gained a lil weight, enough for my jeans to feel a lil more fitted than I'd like, so I've decided that I needed to make sure I do eat healthy, which means cutting on eating out or watching what I eat more when I do, AND cutting down the snacking at work. So, what can I do to NOT eat snacks at work? Well, bring something healthy to eat with me, and what's more healthy than fruit? Not many things, so I decided I'd bring apples and oranges to work, cause they're two of my favourite fruits, but I thought that they might get squished (I do carry a lot of stuff in my handbag) but then I remembered a shop that would be the solution to my woes: Tokyotombola!

All that went through my mind while listening to Iron Maiden on my way home from work one night, so when I arrived home, I went straight to Etsy and Tom's shop where I couldn't choose just one, so I got an orange cozy and a hot pink apple cozy! ;)

Those two finally arrived today, after a long stay in customs during public holidays last week, I'm sure... and I just had to take pics of them and show them off! They're just B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T!

Just for giggles, I used the orange cozy for an apple and the pink apple for an orange, aren't they such a cute idea?

If you think size would be a problem, don't, each of them can fit a good sized apple/orange without even a burp!

I bet my co-workers will be envious when I bring it/them/damn, which one to choose? tomorrow!

And in case you love them, and are thinking about how much you'd love a blue apple with spots, just convo Tom, he'd be sure to make something custom and perfect for you & your fruits!

And if you are super duper nice, you may even get the most awesome recipe for Cheesecake cupcakes in existence, as I did! ;)
