Three.




I am lucky. I am immeasurably lucky and for more reasons than one. One of my biggest blessings in life are, without a doubt, my nieces and nephews; of whom I am Godmother to two! Birthdays to me are always a special time of reflection on how far we've come and where we're heading next. Last week our family celebrated my niece/God Daughter's 3rd Birthday at our local Wildlife Park. She is merely 3 but don't hold that against her. Watching her explore the highs and lows of the park with so much spunk and gumption was the highlight of the day. Chatting to her you'd never think she just turned 3. Lil Miss can hold a conversation with the best of us with a vocabulary that could rival those 10x her age. She is special.












I am really on the countdown to the big move to London now (116 days, OMGGG). This has me constantly thinking about how much I'm going to miss the little things as my babies will continue to grow and change without me here. I am reminded on days like this though, of the extent of my family's love and care for our little ones. It is a very special and reassuring thing.


















My birthday wish to you on your 3rd birthday Mia-Rose is that you always stay close to your big, crazy family that loves you unconditionally, that you never stop asking questions because knowledge is power and that you live many, many years of happiness and joy that knows no bounds. I will miss every ounce of you when I'm gone God Daughter but one day you will be old enough and when the time is right I will take you out to explore this wide world. 





Love & blessings forever little one,

Happy Birthday.

First time in a long time...



Hahaha. I'm laughing because here I go again beginning my first blog post in aaaaaggggeeeeessssss with the "oh my gosh it's been so long since my last blog post" spiel. There is really no brilliant excuse...the same ones still ring true. It's either A) I haven't had the time or B) I haven't had the inspiration. This time it is a combination of both. It seems lately that when I have the time I don't have the inspiration and when I have no time I have truckloads of things to write about and share. BLEHH. Well to my surprise the stars and moon have aligned and here I am typing away and it feels nice to be back in my own tiny, little space in Internet Land.

So I am very excited to announce to Internet Land and random passers-by that LONDON FLIGHTS ARE BOOKED, I REPEAT, LONDON FLIGHTS ARE BOOKED!!! And I'm kinda shit scared lol! Myself, my sister and two of my close friends are packing up and heading to London to teach for however long we can last (Visa maxes out at 2 years!) in September this year!

The aim is to teach to make that paper, then in turn use that paper to explore and travel Europe! This will be a big, fat, awesome thing to tick off my bucket list which I am saaaaahhhh excited about. As a kid we didn't have much but dreams were in abundance. It's so weird to now be growing up and to be able to work hard for the ways and means to fulfil dreams. To say we are blessed is an understatement.

The to-do list of things to get done before we fly out is RIDICULOUS but...challenge accepted!

I hope wherever you are if you're reading this, that your list of dreams is being ticked off one by one. You owe it to yourself to live the life you've always wanted regardless of your past or present circumstance.

Make it happen.

Love & Blessings x

Aussie Curves: Black and white!


YAY! I'm finally back with a post! Hello AC black and white week! I love when I unintentionally wear something that I can use for a AC post because then I kinda have no excuse to not get it done. So this is me getting it done!

It was Birthday on Thursday (yay!) which was a perfect reason to go for breakfast at the new cafe in town that everyone's been raving about called The Wooden Door. We were so glad we did because it's a beautiful, organic space and the food...oh yes that was SO YUM! After breakfast we headed to church. Needless to say, it was a beautiful morning.









What I wore:
  • Blazer- thrifted $6. LOVE this blazer, so comfy and shapes so nicely!
  • Top- Supre $2 (Campbelltown Factory outlet super store)
  • Skirt- Kmart $15 this season
  • Wedges- Target (last season)
  • Sunnies- thrifted Gold Coast Salvos $5
  • Clutch- gifted from my beautiful friend Anne, THANKS sis!
  • Earrings- Gifted from my sissy Mele
  • Lips- Velour Lips gloss to matte from Priceline





While we're on the black and white topic, how GORGEOUS does my niece look in her B&W threads for her year 10 formal. Black and white for me = classic style and beauty. So sad I missed my baby girl's formal. She & all my nieces and nephews make up all the pieces of my heart. This beautiful babe of mine came into my life when I was just 10 years old and we've looked after her and loved her every minute since so yes, it was sad for us to miss a special milestone in her life but she just shines with beauty. Maisy Moo, I love you :)



I must also send out a HUGE Happy Birthday to my beauty friend/sister/Aussie Curves babe Anne!!! LOVE YOU BOO! Here's a quick snap from last night's lil celebrations for our birthdays! Coincidentally, I am also in black and white! LOL. love it!




Big Love xx
