The Diamond Club and Great Ocean Road

Before you all get excited, no I am not engaged...The Diamond Club is the name of the 'exclusive' area at Etihad Stadium where I was luck enough to spend last Wednesday evening.

Finally some good news!

Last week SJ had a Skype interview for a graduate position at a research institue in Sydney. He got a phone call today that he's made it to the final round of the selection process and is being flown to Sydney next Friday for a tour and final interview.

I'm so nervous!

Disney Clock Housewarming Gift

One of my younger sisters moved out of home earlier this year. Cue need for the perfect housewarming gift.

She mentioned that she wanted a wall clock for the kitchen, I begged to be be the one to find the perfect clock for her.

Mission and a half!

12wbt Finale and My Weekend

Another photo heavy post. As a result I will try to keep my words down. Means short sentences. Which may not be complete. Sorry about that.

My Cake

Okay, so it's not really my cake, the recipe comes from the Masterchef magazine. This page in fact...

Fake Mother's Day

Since I need to bring you up to date on my weekend...

Friday night flew to Brisbane with SJ, MissH and MissF (sisters and friends of mine also invited to the wedding).

Saturday, spent most of the day at Ikea with MissH and MissF looking at goodies they intended to buy to furnish the house they have just purchased together. I will be visiting them tomorrow to help them put it all together. Don't tell anyone, but MissF didn't know what an Allen Key was...

Bit of a tease...

I was too lazy when I got home last night to write a post and too lazy to spend my lunch break writing more than this.

My weekend in Brisbane was great, I feel like for once I had a weekend. Enjoyed the time with my family and catching up with a large number of friends and I was really happy with how I looked at the wedding...that's a rare feeling, you know the sort? when you go to the bathroom a few hours in and you're still happy with your makeup and how your hair is sitting? Well I had one of those nights.

Don't have too many pictures from the wedding itself but I'm hoping to grab a few more from a friend.

SJ and I are heading to Heston Blumenthal Live tonight, I bought tickets for his birthday last week. Means I won't have time for a proper post still AND I will have even more to post about. Add that to the fact that the 12wbt is now over and I want to prepare a giveaway for when I reach 100 followers (only 1 to go now) and I feel like I'm super behind on my blog...

Bear with me, I will catch up soon!

More Ombre Nails

My nails were looking a little chipped last night so I decided to freshen them up. Instead of redoing the pink though, I painted over them with some dark reds so now I have Autumn themed Ombre Nails...Orange to Burgandy. What do you think?

Crepes and Paris

Important things first, this is my new new hair. Much better, don't you think? The hairdresser was really nice about it all (though I think he thought I was crazy when it was such a good colour) a few blonde foils through the front was all it took and I'm super happy with it. Ignore the pimple on my chin and the fact that I am in Coles. It was SJ's birthday yesterday and I took the opportunity to duck into Coles after my appointment to grab some dessert before rushing off to netball...we lost by the way...

The rest of my weekend and purchases...

My current flowers, looked better 5 seconds earlier in the sun...which I obviously missed getting my phone to take a picture of them...

Just a warning, this is a photo heavy post.

New Hair and Tan

Let me first apologise for not posting in a few days. I knew my first post would have to be able my hair and tan but I wasn't happy with either. So I wallowed instead. Never fear, I am posting now and I am getting my hair fixed. Read on to see why...
