Summer is coming to an end ?>

Summer is coming to an end

After Laine flew back to the land of Aus, I had one week of down time until our final Summer adventure – Croatia. I was feeling a bit deflated, from saying goodbye and also realising I was down to my absolute last dollars (and pounds) and the English weather was not helping. It rained every day, the heating came on and I was sleeping in Winter pj’s – how ridiculous! I went to the gym every day to lift my…

Home Sickness – Or Lack Thereof ?>

Home Sickness – Or Lack Thereof

Let’s start with a throwback to 2011. I was 20 years old, had only been overseas once, (and as part of a school group) I had a boyfriend and very close ties to my friends and family at home. And off I went to Italy on my own. I was petrified, I’m not even exaggerating. I’m surprised I wasn’t throwing up on the day I left because of my nerves, fear and anxiety. I cried literally the whole way to…

At the beginning of the week her and her boyfriend signed off on the house and…

Happy Holidays! ?>

Happy Holidays!

I love the build up to Christmas, I love the anticipation and suspense and I LOVE Christmas Eve. I love Christmas work parties, Christmas carols, lazy Sundays by the pool, balmy nights with a Strongbow…

Lightening the mood

It’s time to tell you about the weekend spent looking at wedding dresses for the gorgeous Renee – certainly a way to lighten the mood this hump day Wednesday! As I mentioned in this post, my friend Renee (or Ren) is getting married and last weekend we spent two days in Melbourne looking at and trying on gowns – and it was sooo much fun! There was Leah and I (two of the four brisdemaids) and Ren’s mum… and of course Ren…

When your best friend gets engaged – to my one and only Renee. ?>

When your best friend gets engaged – to my one and only Renee.

One of favourite movies of all time is ‘Bridesmaids,’ I think it is bloody hilarious and I’m so damn excited that I get to be a bridesmaid for the first time for my beautiful friend. My best friend Renee, got engaged back in February and I just attended her engagement party last Saturday night, but I can assure you my reaction to her engagement was nothing like that of Annie’s when Lillian told her she was engaged. I was completely…
