Jess ran to the shop across the road and bought an underwater camera and this week we all finally got to see what the pictures turned out like! (If you haven't used a disposable underwater camera before - you can't actually see what the pictures turn out like until the film is developed - like back in the old days when we would take pictures on film!!)
They turned out great!!!
The only problem is they are making me day dream of being back on my gorgeous holiday and back at the beach! Time just flies past way too quick these days, so I try to cherish every moment I get and take as many pictures as I can so the memories always last!
Thanks for sharing the piccies Jess!!! :o)

Why is it always when things seem to be traveling along smoothly and pretty well that there always seems to be one big fat bump in the road that throws you back a huge step wondering what the hell happened?!
How has your day been?
Thank God it's Friday!!!

My favourite pieces from above have to be the large bag in the main picture - looks awesome against the checked print shirt ($98 by yesstyle.com), the heels ($92 by Jessica Simpson) and the cute thin belt which would look awesome around the middle of a pretty lbd ($37 by Zara.com)!
Gotta love imaginary shopping online. I just wish I could buy all of these things!!

It's called "Somebody That I Used To Know" by Gotye. If you haven't heard it already, click on the clip above - I love it!
It has totally inspired me to get our garden and veggie patching going properly again and to focus more on homegrown, fresh produce where I know exactly what has gone into my food.

I read 3 books while I was away and boy, I was so lucky to have picked such awesome ones!!
"Set in Mississippi during the 1960s, Skeeter (Stone) is a southern society girl who returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends' lives -- and a Mississippi town -- upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Aibileen (Davis), Skeeter's best friend's housekeeper, is the first to open up -- to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community. Despite Skeeter's life-long friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories -- and as it turns out, they have a lot to say. Along the way, unlikely friendships are forged and a new sisterhood emerges, but not before everyone in town has a thing or two to say themselves when they become unwittingly -- and unwillingly -- caught up in the changing times."
(synopsis from here.)
It is a powerful book and absolutely makes you think about life in the 1960's. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is in search of a great read!
I am also equally excited about this book as I am about this.....
It has recently been made into a movie starring Emma Stone, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer! Here's a peek at the trailer - It looks fantastic!
