Just one of those random fluffy get to know ya posts

Hello everyone!!

I hope everyone had a great saturday. Our entire extended household is battling head colds at the moment so we are considering buying shares in kleenex and panadol. A thrilling weekend it does not make!

MIL and I did hit the shops in Fremantle this afternoon. there were no thrilling purchases made by me, even though there is a fantastic sale on at the moment. One thing that did catch my eye was a bonus bulk buy pack of NUDE by nature mineral makeup..but alas they didnt have the colour I was after. Bummer!

So as my brain is all kinds of fuzzy today, its just a bit of a fluffy post. As this blog is pretty new I figured that every couple of weeks or though I would tell you ten random things about me (I would LOVE if you all shared ten random things about you in the comments, that would make my day!)

  1. If I could spend all day, every day in my PJ's I would!
  2. I have cavalier king charles x bichion named Asti. Shes a bit dopey but beautiful in nature lol.
  3. I am either an 8 or 9 in shoes....I cant decide which fit I like better, depends on the shoe I guess.
  4. I had a salted caramel macaroon for the first time today....I think I'm in LOOOOOVE!
  5. My alcoholic crink of choice is Grey goose vodka with good quality orange juice or lemonade. yummo!
  6. I want Gloria Gaynor's "I will survive" played at my funeral.
  7. I want to buy an unloved cute little house and make it stunning in my own slightly quirky way.
  8. I love fashion and have champagne tastes on a not even beer budget, it more like a shandy budget! I hate paying retail prices hence why at the moment I opshop to get my fashion fix. 
  9. I always knew I was an ok cook but living with the Inlaws has been a huge ego boost. My MIL raves about my cooking. I guess I must be doing something right. (maybe recipies is something I should start posting on here? thoughts?)
  10. I have no one amazing talent. I'm good at lots of things but as far as I can tell I'm not AMAZING at any one thing.
So leave a comment about your weekend or a list of 10 random things or whatever takes you fancy really.

Night all!!

take 2 (aka- where I try and catch up on the past 6 months)

Hello Lovers!
Its been a long time between drinks, or in this case, blogs.

Its been a busy busy 6 months in my world and I figure that I should sum up things.
There will be posts in more detail on many of the things that have occurred.

  • We moved from Darwin to Perth so my husband could start his new career.
  • We DROVE from darwin to perth (with a 4 year a corolla hatchback!)
  • We are now living with my Inlaws (mother in law, stepfather in law and brother in law)
  • Little madam starts school in 4 weeks. (WA has a weird school system that im still trying to get my head around)
  • We started trying for baby number two late last year (before all the earlier posts) with no success and shortly before we moved I was dignosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) with the added bonus of insulin resistance. (which explains why NONE of my pregnancy weight gain seems to have gone away!)
  • Now we arent sure if baby number two is an option that we want to pursue.
  • I will now have to somewhat "reinvent myself." I have been a stay at home mum for 4 years, and now it looks as if its time to join the "real world" again. I find this perplexing. I hadnt realised how much of my identity had been tied up with being "just a mum" (Oh my god! I hate that term, but it pretty much sums up things and how I'm feeling at the moment.
  • As im no longer living in the humid tropics of the Northern Territory I have been able to start to rediscover fashion again. Its very exciting! and I'm pleased to announce that since arriving in Perth I have worn a bra every single day. No more braless bogan! (see here to have that explained)
So thats it for now.

I'm hoping to make a few changes to this blog over the coming weeks...If anyone has any experience they can share with me about the best ways to promote/market pathetic to pin-up send me a message on the facebook page or email  <which i will add the address here shortly once I create it>

What have you all been up to? Any big news? small news? silly news? Share it as a comment! :)

Much love
