Took the plunge...

Okay folks, I never did give you the outcome of my "Not so phone savvy" post back here.

I decided to take all of your very useful and great feedback and advice about iPhones and finally took the plunge and bought one of my very own!

Yep... I've joined the masses and I am slowly getting the hang of these AWESOME phones! You were all sooo right! I don't know why I didn't get an iPhone earlier!!

Look at this picture!

I've even worked out how to take a selfie and all!! hahaha

Thanks again for all of your comments and feedback, it's very much appreciated!


Down to the wire...


Less than a week before I head off on my adventure overseas and I am getting "down to the wire"


Let the packing begin!!!!

reality tv... I heart thee

Okay I know there a lot of you out there that truly HATE reality TV but I have to confess, I actually kinda like it.

In fact, I would go so far to say that there are some reality TV shows that I LOVE!

Now before you click the little "x" in the top right hand corner of your screen, hear me out. I by no means am one of the MTV generation followers and die to watch an episode of "Flavor of Love" or "A shot at love with Tila Tequila", in fact these kinds of reality shows make me wanna puke!

But at the moment I am totally digging the kind of reality TV that shows inspirational work and discovers a bunch of really talented and crafty people!

I'm totally in LOVE with "The Block" at the moment and after scrolling through Facebook I found Katrina Chambers' blog and etsy shop, and am now an even bigger fan of her and her sister Amie's work on The Block more than ever!



And at the risk of sounding totally addicted to the show I need to have a little rant about the judging last night on the show of the girls main bedroom and en suite. I personally think these girls have been a little gypped throughout the competition and have totally kicked ass at their room reno's!





I am definitely rooting for the girls to win their challenges and room reveals this week!

What do you think??? Do you watch the show??

A day in the country...

Some days its good to just get out of the house and see some of the "Outdoors."


So despite the drizzly, rainy weather today, my little sister Jessie, her little pooch Lil and Me accompanied my Dad and Pop out onto a property on the outskirts of town to do some farm work and get out of the house.

jess and lil

I love these opportunities to spend time out in the bush and with my family. I always have my trusty DSLR camera in hand to catch some happy snaps of the good times and the great outdoors!


Even Lil enjoyed the time out and about and got her little "paws" in the mud!! Cute!

All in all it was a great day out and helps to clear the mind and gives me a chance to breathe in some fresh country air! Gotta love that!!

How was your Sunday??

Too Busy To Blog

Whoaaa have I been a slacker at Blogging over the last few weeks or what?!

I have been nothing but busy dear Bloggy friends and feel very bad for not updating my blog on a more regualr basis. :o(

You see I am currently in the middle of getting organised for a BIG over seas trip and will be jetting off to Europe in less than 3 weeks!!!!

lets go anywhere


There has been so much excitement leading up to the trip but also a lot of planning, organising and a little bit of stressing trying to get my passport and things in order so the trip can go ahead!

So I thought it was time to update you all on my upcoming adventure and I will hopefully be blogging before I fly out!!

I hope you are all happy and well

Chat again soon

Hanging with the pooch

Since my sisters don't have any kids just yet, our pets become our babies.

Now that my little sister Jessie is back in town visiting, I get to spend some quality time with her pooch and my little "niece" Lil!

Nawww she's a cutie....
