In May next year the boyfriend, his little brother and I are Jet Setting to Europe for 4.5weeks! I'm pretty darn excited especially since I've never left the country. Is that sad considering I'm 24? Hmm..

I am crazy OCD when it comes to planning, and the fact that I am going with 2 boys, who are just "oh yeah whatever" has sent me a little over the top! I have a excel spreadsheet outlining where we are going, dates, accommodation, flights/ferry's etc! PLEASE tell me I'm not the only who does this?
  So far out trip looks a little like this

Ever since I was little I have been obsessed with London, so to be honest I'm pretty pumped about that! We are spending most of our time trekking around the Greek Islands. I'm still not too sure who we are going to fly with I've checked out Qatar Airways and they seem pretty good, but everyone is just saying lash out on a little more and fly with Emirates. What are your suggestions?

I'd also love to hear any suggestions you for any of the places that we are going! 

Downstairs at work (The Youghert Club) has been my go to cure for my recent cravings of Green Juice! I know this is the latest crave, and at first I wasn't keen, One of my colleagues went through a stage of " if it was green, it goes in" I had a taste and man that wasn't good! However.. I've been loving them recently.

I've been wanting to make some Kale Chips for a while, anyone recommend these?

One of the reasons I have been so absent from blogging is that I have I been working my butt off at work and its true hard work does pay off! Last month I was lucky enough to get our highest biller award which was nice - I couldn't have survived the long hours without my trusty coffee that's fo sure!

It had been 4 years since I had a caught up with one of the girls I went to high school with (she'd moved interstate) and I got to meet her little bubba who is only 3 months old. Is she not adorable? Funnily enough I called the boyfriend when I got back to the office and told the Boyfriend we should have babies, he swiftly told me that we could talk about that tonight, and well.. lets just say that conversation never happened hahaha. Men! Gosh, always taking things literally. 

We are moving our offices, no more level 36 views.. Sad face! But we went to see the new offices, and in style I took a bathroom selfie ha.

The last couple of visits to my hair dresser we have been going lighter and lighter, I found the above hair colour I think it was on asos!? Not sure, but I loved it and I sent it to my hairdresser and she said absolutely lets do it! (this coming Thursday) but now I'm thinking its a little too red??

In true style, Chobani.. Addicted there is no doubt about it.
I'm not one for lip gloss, Its either lipstick or no deal, but I did pick up this little baby by Revlon, when I first pulled it out it was so sticky and thick I didn't even think I would bother trying it.. I wouldn't buy it again but I'll admits not too bad. Have you ever tried it?


  1. How exciting that you are heading to Europe next year, your travel agenda looks amazing!
    I normally fly Emirates, but in July I flew Qatar and I thought they were just as good.
    Congratulations on being the highest biller at work, that is awesome.
    I really like that hair colour choice from the picture.

    1. Thanks!
      I've heard good things about Qatar as well, however being the first time i'm travelling I want to make sure that I fly with a good airline! x

  2. You're not the only one that plans a holiday like that.... ;)

    This is so exciting!! Let me know if you need a hand with organising - I did a Europe trip 3 years ago and want to go back soon :)


    1. Ooh i'll totally be asking you questions left right and centre haha x

  3. Haha yeah you are looking a little OCD with the spreadsheet but I'm sure it's for the best!

    Sounds like it'll be a good trip!

    haha the new bathroom looks great, I'm sure there will be plenty more selfies of you in there to come :)

  4. Oh haaay we're planning to go next May too, but could only afford to take 3 weeks off work.
    I have totally gone nuts with a spreadsheet too! It's the only way to do it!
    We're planning to do: Paris, Venice, Cinque Terre, Rome via Florence, Amalfi Coast, Athens & Santorini. Can't wait! Haven't booked flights yet but we are also looking at Qatar, seems the best value and the flights we're planning to get only have a 2 hour stopover in Doha so not too dragged out.
    Can't really give any tips as it's our first time to Europe, but have fun planning and keep us updated :)

    1. Oh yay!! Yes our plane is only in doha for 2 hours also.. It worked out so much better some other flights where laying over for 6+ hours!
      cant wait to see your plans x

  5. I always fly qantas or Singapore to Europe.

    Love santorini stay in oia. iOS is very party central went there years ago fun but very full on.

    Adore Barcelona will try to remember where we stayed.

    Shopping in London is amaze.

  6. Hit send too soon.

    You need more time In Paris 2 days is not enough and why are you bothering going to Munich for one day?mi wouldn't do that as not worth it for the travel.

    1. We are flying to munich at 7am and we leave at 9pm the next night, the boyfriend wants to see something in germany and it will only take the day! It actually didnt cost us alot to factor that in!

      Ios is def the party island haha.

      I'm really excited for barcelona too, I would love to hear where you stayed if you can remember xx

  7. So exciting!!! I am dying to go to Europe!! I think I would be the exact same with the Excel spreadsheet. I mean I'm going to Sydney for a week in a month's time (and I've been several times before) but I've still got an itinerary of each day planned out. Can't even imagine how much fun (and stressful) planning Europe would be!
    That hair colour looks lovely and perfect for the summer! I don't think it's too red! :D

    1. haha well I'm glad to hear that I am not the only one!

  8. Wow you must be so excited planning your trip. Sounds amazing!! I love that hair colour... it would look great on you. I would love to try it but I don't think I would pull it off. I think its more auburn than red, good luck!


    1. Yeh it's not red and I def dont want it to be red, but my hair has a tendency to go copper! So fingers crossed.

  9. Yeah you're definitely not the only one, you should see the stuff I put together for my trip! Organising my 77 year old Nanna who was travelling earlier than me played a big factor in that.
    If you want to see any of my resources email/FB me and I'll pass them on :-)

  10. I've been to both Italy and Greece. I"ve always loved Italy, my favourite place is Florence. We also went to Mykonos and Santorini. Not sure how your planning on getting to each island, but we we were on a Ferry, only takes a couple of hours max depending how far your travelling and its cheaper than flying. My favourite of the two was Santorini, I definitely recommend seeing the Black beaches there. Also love that hair colour!!
