Sea clouds

Early this morning my mother roused the family from our sleep to head down to Elephant Rock for the Dawn Service. 

Hundreds of people had gathered on the beach to pay their respects and spend time remembering those who gave their lives for our country. 

Watching the sun rise over the sea as the bugle played was a moving background for the scenes of Gallipoli that were playing in my mind’s eye. 

 

We Will Remember Them.

After brekkie and a nap I’m now laying on the beach staring at the clouds as they drift on by. They look close enough to touch today! 

There’s nowhere I’d rather be than laying on the beach in the last scrap of sunshine before winter is truly upon us.

Busy little bumblebee 

In my experience, things always happen all at once! And this time of year has been no exception. 

I love to keep myself busy and I’ve taken on some extra work, but this means Lexie Lou has been getting a little neglected (but not for long)! I have some very exciting things planned for next month… Including my very first giveaway for Lexie Lou’s first birthday! Watch this space 😉

The colder weather brings a whole new world of fashion and accessorizing, and I’m so ready to get snuggled back up in my fluffy favourites.

Friday Shreds

Happy Friday darlings!

Today I’m busting out an old favourite for an after work drinks event… my Black Milk Clothing “Shredder Dress”.

Now if I’m honest… I forgot that I even owned this. I have way too many clothes – and I’ve culled significant amounts from my wardrobe in the past two years!! They tend to somehow accumulate again rather quickly… Hmm 😛

This dress is super flattering and very versatile. When in doubt.. wear black!

    

What’s your go-to piece for Friday afternoon fun times?

Happy Egg Day!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you’re all having a wonderful long weekend, even if it is a bit wet!

Easter is my second fave favourite holiday, after all the fuss of Christmas I often forget about it and then it creeps on up… bonus holiday!

As I don’t have much (if any) dairy, Easter has always been a bit alternative for me 😛 This year I found some adorable macarons at The Standard Market and I decided they would be my naughty treat for the holiday. They’re so cute – how could I resist them?!
