Still here!!!

Hey Bloggy friends!

I feel so bad that I haven't checked in lately, time has crept up on me and I'm starting to fall in a heap with the amount of things that I have going on at the moment, and to top it all off its December this week!! OMG!!!!

I'm so unorganised. I haven't bought one Christmas present, I haven't even bought my Christmas cards to send to all of the friends and family (and this is a tradition for me that I do every year - I'm usually organised with this!)

I need a good kick up the butt to get myself into gear before its too late and all of my family will be receiving "IOU's" for Christmas!!!

I have however been spying on this years kikki K Christmas gift guide in some spare Internet time that I have had. I've earmarked a few goodies that I like! I love kikki K with all of its organisational and stationary goodness!

Check out the website here and the best part is - you can shop online!! (That's great for us folk living in the bush that cant make it to the city before Christmas, gotta love that!)

Anyhow, hopefully I will have some more interesting news to share soon!
Take care until then

7 Days of Shoe love...

Instead of "Tuesday Ten" this week I thought I'd do 7 days of shoe love.
7 occassions for 7 shoes I'm loving right now! (If only I could afford them all... and have enough cupboard space to house them all! Oh well, a girl can dream!!)

Show me your MO!

If you're like me you may have noticed that there are a lot of guys walking around this month with those funny looking moustaches (or "mo's" as I like to call them).

 That's when you know it's "Movember".

Usually I'm not one to like a mo on a guy (I grew up with my dad who has a strict "shave every day" kind of policy and I have never seen him with facial hair before, so it's kind of been instilled in me to think this way too I guess!) but when it comes to Movember I think I am warming up to it.

Even though a lot of my guy friends are starting to resemble Mario and Luigi, or some greasy looking Italian guys that I met at some beach parties in the Greek Islands earlier this year I have to say that I am kind of proud of them.

Movember is such a good cause and even if the guys participating don't really know why they have taken an oath not to shave their faces for the entire month of November and just want to annoy their girlfriends and wives for the month, I am  still throwing out a big "Good on ya!" to all of the guys involved.

In my experience its almost impossible to get any guy to take an interest in their health so the more mo's the merrier I say!

Show us your Mo's boys!!! hehe

Weekend Wrap Up

Tomorrow is Monday isn't it?! Oh crap! It comes around so fast doesn't it?!

This weekend I got up to some fun things, but still feel like the time has flown by way too quick (why can't it do that when I'm drowning in paperwork at the Office on a Tuesday arfternoon at 3pm when it feels like the week will never end?!)

For starters I finally got my car back from the mechanic!!!! Hallelujah! I'm sure I haven't mentioned this before but lately I have been having the hardest time with my cute little Barina (Beep Beep is her name). Her brakes were failing and causing me grief (even though she is only 6 years old!!) so I had to truck her off to the closest Holden Service department (which happens to be 300kms away. Gee living in the bush has its perks *wink*)

After a few weeks away she is finally home and running like a champ! Here I am taking her on a "victory lap" (the 300km trip back home). Reunited again! haha

Also this week I lashed out and got another manicure (I am sooo addicted to these now.) They are so cheap (because I only get my real nails painted and don't go with any acrylic add on thingys) and they look so good, it saves me trying to do it myself! Once again I chose an OPI colour called "Barefoot In Barcelona". I love the name, especially since I was barefoot in Barcelona this year back in August - ah memories! I've already ordered this colour online to add to my own collection I love it so much!

Last night I had a great night out with my good friend Jess.C. We haven't been out on the "town" together in such a long time it was nice to catch up over some wines and get our dance on!

This is what I wore out last night. I was trying to take a picture to send to my sister in Townsville to see if she would approve of the outfit or tell me if it looked terrible (I've never worn high waisted shorts out before so this was something new! I am in love with them now! So comfy, especially on a warm night when you're dancing around everywhere! lol)

Please excuse the state of the bathroom bench and the "crinkly-ness" of my clothes. (This shot was pre-iron!)

So today was spent lazing around watching re-runs of my favourite show, One Tree Hill with a slight headache from those darn wines last night! lol

I'm not too excited that its Monday tomorrow, but hey, everyday is a gift. I'm going to embrace this week!

How was your weekend? Fill me in, drop me a comment below! :o)

This week I am grateful for...

This week I am grateful for having such amazing friends.

Through everything that I have gone through this year family and friends have been the most important thing to me.

They are there through ups and downs, they make you laugh, drink with you until you are stupid, dance around silly with you, drag your sorry ass off the couch when you're feeling down and they never cease to surprise you.

I've made so many new friends this year in Australia and overseas and I never forget the ones close to home that keep me smiling all week.

I feel so grateful to have amazing friends there for me.
I'm thinking of you all this week (you know who you are!)

Tuesday Ten

10 things I want to do before I die. (In no particular order!)

1. Visit the "top 10" best rated beaches in the world!!  I think after visiting Fiji, Boracay Island, Barcelona, the Greek Islands and Sicily I've seen quite a few Ah-mazing beaches but I want to visit the TOP rated beaches everywhere!

2. Finish my Graphic Design degree and eventually open my own design business. (Uni starts back in Feb 2012, here I come!)

3. Make a million dollars somehow.

4. Own and build my own home. (After making a million dollars this shouldn't be that hard right??!)

5. Own a jacuzzi hot tub. After my weekend spent with friends in a gi-NORMOUS 10 seater awesomly hot hot-tub I decided that I want to own my own. If I did this little baby would be used all year round!

6. Finish working on my family tree (and learn more about my extended family.)

7. Visit Africa and the Egyptian pyramids.

8. Win a really big award for something special!

9. Find the love of my life, and me be the love of his life too :)

10. Okay this one sounds silly and pointless but I really want to be able to wear a pair of skin tight tights out with some killer heels and not feel uncomfortable or self conscious! (Hence killing my self at Body Pump class tonight! lol)

I could go on and on and on about what I want to do before I die but we'd be here forever!!
What's on your list to do before you die??
