Loving life in our new home...

We have been living in our new unit for about 4 weeks and it has just flown by!! It feels like yesterday that we got the keys and rushed over here to check it out! We were so happy and we are still on a high everyday after getting home from work.

It was almost a year long wait but it was worth it.

We had some work to do when we first moved in like installing down lights to replace the horrible ones that were here.


Installing the down lights

Our first downlight installed!

And repainting the horrible brown walls with a light grey shade which really opened the space and made it appear so much more fresh looking.

Brown walls... ewww

Painting away...

The first finished room! 

There is still so much to be done and our second bedroom currently has a variety of unmatched furniture inhabiting it. But we are happy and we live in this great unit with so many windows and fresh air flowing through it. The balcony is huge and our amazing lounge was the perfect choice for our lounge room. 

We really need new blinds so that will be our next project. I will make sure I upload some photos of that when we get to it! 

Happy Saturday everyone!

Lights of Christmas - Sydney

Last night, I went down to watch a project my team has been working on for a few weeks now. The launch of Lights of Christmas was, let me just say, soooooo beautiful! I recommend everyone go down to see it shining on the facade of St Mary's Cathedral.

The creative director and his team have done a stellar job in such a short space of time and deserve props for executing the light projections perfectly.

My colleagues have also done an incredible job working on this from a NSW Government perspective from start to finish. These photos do it no justice... make sure you check it out before Christmas!

MC and Choir getting ready to launch Lights of Christmas!

This was my favourite imagery... doves landing on the facade! 

Beautiful tree in 3D...

...that turned into a Christmas tree!

Officially open! So pretty! 
(All images from my iPhone)

I loved it way more than last year's one! It really is worth a visit.

Who wore it better?

Victoria Beckham in Victoria Beckham?

Or Eva Longoria in Victoria Beckham!

(Both images from The Vogue Diaries)

I still cant get over baby Harper Beckham came from that woman just a few months ago. How does she look like that after four kids? Insane.

I think Earth Mother is angry?

It's the 7th day of summer and to be honest... it feels more like its coming into winter. I have no idea what to wear when I wake up in the morning and I usually check my iPhone for advice...

Ohhh great!! Loving the Sydney summer at the moment. :(

ARIA Fashion: Fifi's Fail

The ARIA's was on yesterday in Sydney and I have to say... some of the outfits were great but there was one that was particularly hideous. Never been a fan of Fifi to be honest. This outfit reminds me why.

All photos are from Daily Telegraph online.

What was she thinking? Ewww!

Spunk, in his own collection - Didier Cohen

Guy Sebastian and his pregnant wife looking radiant! I love Guy's outfit. 

Ricki Lee - loving her new bod.

Jessica Mauboy - great dress!

Delta looking much better here than she did at Avon's 125th Anniversary!
(see below image from The Vogue Diaries)

Arghhhh - what is going on here?

There doesn't seem to be much of a dress code for this event - some girls dressed in pants, while other are in cocktail dresses and then some in gowns? Hmmm

Happy birthday to my Love

Today is K's birthday! He turns 25 today and hasn't stopped reminding me since day one that he is three and a half years younger than me.

I couldn't be more proud of the man he has become. Especially since I met him just before his 21st birthday (which most girls know is a rather immature age for young men). Not K though. It seems like forever ago, but in 4 short years, our lives have changed dramatically and I am so thankful that I have him to share my life with.

He is determined, strong, happy and independent. He makes me laugh everyday. We spend a lot of time together but I never get sick of him (rarely, anyway). We developed our own personal language that we speak to each other with all the time and it makes me feel so close to him. He can talk to anyone. He is open, friendly and brutally honest about everything. He is also stubborn and a little too relaxed. But all of these plus a million more reasons make me love him more and more each day.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY K!! You are an amazing man. You have made my life complete. You are my life and love and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but here with you.

(Honey & Fizz)

A million kisses today and everyday.

Brrrr... its cold in here.

Just last weekend I cleaned my new cupboard out, threw away lots of clothes I don't wear and packed up my winter clothes, my winter blanket and my boots.

This morning... I had to get my boots back down from storage! WTF is going on with this weather Earth Mother? How am I meant to know what to wear to work every day? If I have to get my doona back down from storage too there will be trouble.

(Ugg Australia)

Wish I could go home and put my UGGS on and have a nap.

Vogue Diaries

One of my favourite things to do is look at The Vogue Diaries. I could just sit for hours looking through all the photos. I love this site! If you haven't seen it, you should definitely have a look.

Here are some of my favourite pics from this morning's viewing!

Wish I had her pins! 

Amazing dress

I love this dress! So unusual.

Great shoes! 


Stunning... always

And again... amazing

I love Reese

Shoes are way too heavy but the dress is really nice...

Love that bag! 

Always looking gorgeous! 

Sometimes I can scroll for awhile and not find too many great outfits/photos, but today was a big score!

Funny morning...

K started a new job on Tuesday and today is his third day. I have been getting up super early with him and we have been catching the train at 6.10am. Except today K misread the train timetable and we caught the train from Penshurst and we just missed the fast train. We had to get on the very slow all stations train. We were so tired on the way in but luckily we weren't late.

It was 6.50am and he starts at 7am, but his colleagues and boss had already left the office where the meet and were walking across the road to the site. His supervisor made a bee line for him and I heard K say "oh sh*t" and so I just put my head down and kept walking. I didn't even say goodbye to K. I totally freaked and thought the boss would yell at him or something and so I got out of there quick smart.

Ha ha - I think an old boss of mine who made my life hell has scared me half to death of all bosses. I felt like I was in school again.

Funny times. I bet he wasn't even in trouble because we weren't even late!

We are in!

It's been more than a week since I posted last. Wow. What a slacker. But to be real, I have been flat out moving house and we do not have the internet connected at home yet. I desperately want to use our new Macbook but we cant! Its only been like 4 days but still... it feels like longer.

We are all settled in our new home. I cant believe it. For the last two nights, I have left work and gone home to my own place. Our unit. Just the two of us. And it has been heaven.

I am going to post some before and after pics shortly. It has been so much fun refurbishing - its amazing what a lick of paint can do!

Sorry Kim...

As most would know... I am obsessed with the Kardashian's. I follow them religiously and I am pretty much getting Foxtel just so I can watch their shows. In saying that, I was so disappointed to hear of Kim's divorce after 72 days (read my post from November 1).

I saw this interview of Kim & Khloe in Sydney with Paula Joye recently and now I feel my outburst was a little hasty. As soon as I saw this I felt instant sadness for her. She seems devastated.

(The Age)

Not sure what went so very wrong for them, but I do know that I wouldn't wish divorce on anyone. Especially if Kris was misbehaving, as some media reports are saying.

Just want to say sorry Kim. I feel bad for my outburst. I hope you start to feel better soon and keep on being the total glamazon that you are.

I have been waiting for this day all year....

Our agent just called! We get to pick up the keys today!! Our investment unit is finally going to be our home. I am so excited...

Really?... like... Really?

Kim K and Kris... divorced... in 72 days? Really?


I mean, I cant say I am surprised as such. I thought he was a total arrogant pig on the show. They argued a lot and he really wanted her to live in his Minnesota house... that was never going to happen Kris. Seriously.

But to be honest, I have to say I am a little disappointed. I believed that their marriage was "for real". Let me clarify, that by "for real", I mean by Hollywood standards, not by normal-average-joe-standards like me and my friends. I certainly didn't think they would divorce within 2 years.  But 72 days? What a joke. I thought Kim had way more class than that?

I feel like I, as the viewer/consumer/fan, have been taken advantage of so that she and E-News could gather more fortune for themselves. I have been taken for a joy ride.

I am starting to wonder whether it is all a sham? The show. The relationships. The marriages. Are we in a worldwide episode of The Truman Show? Or is the divorce just another publicity stunt? After Kris' comments this afternoon about "willing to do whatever it takes to make it work", I have no idea what's real and what's not?

Read this article about Kim's people calling the managers of various basketball teams and asking if their NBA stars would be interested in 'pretend' dating Kim for the opening episode of her show. WTF? How desperate for ratings and money can one already loaded person get?

Give me Khloe and Lamar any day. At least they are real. Even Kourtney and Scott's relationship isn't ideal but at least it's real.

Disappointed and disgruntled.

Favourite decors

I am absolutely loving these design ideas... I am meant to be working from home today but instead I have been browsing design blogs and my image files where I have saved hundreds of pics I love. 

Perfect little nook. Love the striped walls. 
(Spearmint Decor)

Great reading space. 

Great way to use a difficult space. 
(in fin ity)

Even better staircase! No wasted space underneath. 
(Honey & Fizz)

One day... I think this is what the Hamptons must look like.
(The style at home blog)

I love the dramatic window covering and curved lounge!

I would love to have an enormous island bench like this!

I wouldn't normally think of a pink bathroom but this one is classic and beautiful.
(Live Breathe Decor)

Love the curved ottoman.
(Live Breathe Decor)

Fit for a King. I hope to have an man cave like this one day that would keep K and his mates and their mess away from the rest of the house! 

OK I could keep going for hours but I have to get to work. Have a great Saturday everyone!

We just paid the final payment on our hugely expensive lounge and ottoman!!! Yay!!

It feels like this has been the longest layby ever. So glad its over and we can concentrate on paying for something else now! I cant wait to relax on this baby and watch Foxtel all night long. 

Any day now...

Dreaming of Vegas

My girlfriend is currently in Las Vegas living it up! I have major travel envy at the moment.

(Chic Traveller)

(No Holiday No Life)

(Tao Beach Las Vegas)

I would stay in a 5 star casino, drink cocktails and shop my heart out! I would love to be lying by the pool with a cocktail in hand, knowing that a trip to the strip later that evening would result in a crazy night in Vegas. 

Miss you S - be safe!

Take me awayyyyyyy!
