Ciao Winter!

Finally this day has come - The last day of Winter is here and I couldnt be happier! No more trying to run to the train station between down pours of rain (Altho melbourne being melbourne it tends to rain whatever season it is!) no more having to haul around a coat..and best of all summer is right around the corner which means - the beach, road trips, the feel of the sun on your skin, dark skin, warm air, cute summer dresses, date nights with the boy and best of all my mum is coming to visit soon!

Today at work we are sporting our favourite sports colours to raise money for charities supporting those with cancer - This morning I must admit I did feel abit out of place with everyone around me show casing their corporate gear and I jump on the train wearing a Essendon Jernsey! - Ah well Im all for a good cause!

(Will post photos later!)

After weeks and weeks of karadashians chit chat Ive decided to blog about it - Personally I NEVER used to be a fan of any of them, Then while off work sick for nearly a week late last year I decided to download some trash TV and came across KUWTK - At first I thought Kim had some type of personality but then as the series went on and on it became more obvious Kim is all about Kim!

With their wedding there has been much talk about her dress and that headpiece! I Actually thought she looked more stunning on her day to day appearances and I felt the dress didn't do her any justice at all! as for the headpiece I didn't dislike it but I really didn't think it made her look any better! I think the whole wedding was just absurd - from the costs to her mothers dress?! I used to watch episodes where Kim would fall for a guy straight away and then just expect marriage and kids! HONESTLY Poor Kris - I try to see the best in their relationship and hope it does last them a life time of happiness but I just don't see Kim sharing her lime light with the "love of her life!" For me If I was to get married - It would be because he is the most important person in my life and I want to share that day with him and allow him to make choices and we would plan it together, not pay a wedding co-coordinator to tell him where to sit and where to stand etc.

Its been said many times before, I think Kendall is just stunning!

Horrible Bosses

Moving house is such an effort and it really makes you have to clean out the draws, and not to mention my closet.. I knew I was an impulsive buyer but when you open one end of your wardrobe, find multipe items hanging on one coat hanger with more than one of those items still holding price tags and never been worn, you know you have a problem.

A problem turned into quiet a large problem when by the time I got to my other end I had counted more than 15 items that I had never worn before! - Ugh.. But in some ways it was great fun because now I feel like I have a whole new wardrobe to play with ;) So this week at work Ive been dressing it up and changing it around abit!

Over the weekend D and I organized some more things for the big move (20 days and counting!) and also went out for a late lunch on saturday in South Melbourne - Had the most delicious fish w salad I had ever and I mean ever tasted!! - Highly recommend you go there

Date night - We headed to the movies to see Horrible Bosses its actually hilarious but a little bit predictable but Go see it! - I love Jennifer Aniston as a Brunette!

Makeup I'm loving this MAC Colour makeup at the moment, I'm finding myself wearing alot of creams, whites and blacks to work at the moment and this colour suits so well  with these and also its not too in your face and suits well for the corporate enviroment!

Today was daffodil day and due to my personal connection to cancer I always buy a bunch of flowers!

Snap shot in the lift on the way up to my apartment after work

I adore daffodils they smell and look just gorgeous!

Sitting at work this morning eating my breakfast (First time that ive ever done this!) But I was looking down at my nails (Wearing OPI - Signifcant other) and funny enough for the name of the nail polish I looked down at my ring which D gave me for my birthday - This always makes me smile whenever I look at it.

Dont you love when one of your colleagues  has a kid who's at school and for some camping/snow/history lesson they're going somewhere and sell those little chocolates for $1 .. (And yes I'm dieting so Shh..)

Why hello..

What a beautiful chocolate head you have..


Ps: And yes I do work within a professional environment, but sometimes these things must be done!


I slept through my alarm AGAIN this morning! that's twice in one week?! I blame all of this boot camp its making me just want to sleep! This morning on the way to train I know there is a whole epidemic about girls who wear tights as pants and there is no way I'm getting into that now..but my views are mixed, personally if you can get away with it then go for it..but there is some people in the world who just shouldn't and they tend to! back on track, this morning I was walking to the train station and I was walking up the ramp and then got slowed down by a girl who was..large (on the bigger end of this scale!) and she was wearing tights.. and no I wasnt "checking" her out but when it was..right in my face it was hard not to notice! but the worst part was she had a HOLE right on the butt cheek!?! Did she not check her outfit or even look at her self before she left in the morning?!

Moving on.

Strong skinny latte' hit the spot this morning esp to find out when I got to work we have had 2 resignations and need to fill their roles asap! Hands on!

We had terrible news yesterday that D's mum had been in a car accident! I was just about to get off the train and I got a text message - Its the worst feeling the unknown, but luckily it wasnt as bad as It could of been, thankgod for airbags! Best news is she is at home resting! Cannot wait to see her next month for D's birthday (and yes thats right a FMIL that I get along with!)

Im in love with the weather that melbourne is putting on at the moment! I was running late for work this morning for various reasons - 1 being I couldnt decide what I wanted to wear ha! Ended up at the train station about 10 minutes later than normal but with the sun beaming down! It was bliss!

D and I have just been approved for the apartment we went searching for on Saturday (Approved within 2 days.. total winning!) and now we are going through the processed of sorting our lease break and also our new lease.. Its so..time consuming and not to mention costly! - I'll keep you updated on that!

Packed to the rafters

Oh oh oh..My day just got that little bit better with when I reminded myself packed to the rafters returns tonight (Im somewhat obessessed with this show!)
Had bootcamp lastnight and suprisngly this morning I dont feel ANY side effects - Last week after my first session I went home feeling sick the day from work the next day (Sucker I know lol!) but today nothing, not even a twinge so I've put it down to me being a complete and utter gun.. Actually no it's possibly because I didnt really give it 100% last night - Come tomorrow's class i'll try abit (not too much!) harder!

It seems each week with me comes a new obessesion that generally lasts a few days, last week it was strawberries and this week its Limes! For dinner lastnight I made D eat grilled fish with lots of fresh limes, lemon and herbs on top - He didnt say anything but the look on his face said it all!

Introducing Leroy

My friend has recently brought a gorgeous english staffy puppy he is only 8 weeks old and we took him out to stkilda this afternoon - Soooooo gorgeous!!!! Introducing Leroy 

11 months and pure sunshine

My boyfriend and I celebrated 11 months together on Saturday - Woke up and went for a quick coffee down in Port Melbourne before house hunting for an apartment in the area (Dying to get back there esp  before summer!) had a strong coffee and then went for a short walk down the beach in the sunshine - The weather this weekend has been so beautiful!

 We had reservations to head down to the docklands to have dinner but after 3 hours house hunting and then heading to BMW on City Road to test drive D's new buy we where exhausted! and ended up driving out to Williamstown for a late lunch and early dinner! The food was amazing, the view was gorgeous and I had the best company ;)

Recent purchases

Ah! Swung past Barkins tonight on the way home from work and they finally stock size 6!  I always go there with the hope that an 8 in pants or skirts will fit but always leave devo'd! Woo! Scored a black size 6 skirt for $40

Also spoiled myself a bit more! It was reduced already so thought why not! 

Feel the burn

Morning after my first boot camp and my legs arent feeling too bad but I am feeling it within my core my stomach feels like its about to snap in half if ever I move.. Im craving chocolate which I have self confessed to my self is not going to happen! I also craved coffee but promised myself no caffine at least limit my intake! Instead I ran across the road to IGA and picked up some juice.. Im actually in love with the design of the bottle.. Im a sucker for those types of things HA!

Urrgh so this day has finally come... Day 1 of bootcamp its time to get my ass toned and fit! Im doing it with one of my friends together so it wont be as daunting! Wish me luck - If im here tomorrow to publish another blog we will all know I have survived! (Laugh!)
