NOT SO PERFECT

Hi and welcome to another Monday!

It’s normally a working day for me however, I had taken some extra time off work to celebrate 4 years of marriage away from home. Although it’s Winter here in Melbourne we’d hoped to brave the cold and make the most of it in Phillip Island.

So after the long weekend, I would have loved to place a tick next to the list of things we had wanted to do…BUT we didn’t quite get there. The little one got really sick spiraling into eventful nights and uneventful days. I’ve now also ended up with a toddler that just wants her water served in a coffee cup.

So after 3 nights, we checked out of the resort and headed out for our second cup of coffee, some decent breakfast and watched the pelicans get fed before heading home.

I wore this outfit for just about the whole weekend and since it was so cold in Phillip Island this beanie became just anothet limb. I do love my short hair but gosh I’d be so much warmer if I had longer hair. On that note, it’s our final month of the Winter. Hella yes!

And as always thanks for reading my post.

HAPPY EASTER

Hello everyone and happy Easter. The best thing about this long weekend is that not only do you get to over indulge in some well deserved chocolate but its also a great time to rest up and spend quality time with family and friends.

Hubby and I hadn’t intended to have a family getaway for the long weekend but we made some last minute plans and managed to find ourselves some accommodation. We didn’t trek far but leaving home for a day was the best thing we did for ourselves. You don’t really think about it but staying at home during the holidays gives you the excuse to do as much as you can around the house, so rather than going back to work rested, most of the time you are exhausted. So we went somewhere where there was not much to do which forced us to do nothing and it was GREAT! Our little lady got plenty of attention from mummy and daddy too 🙂

I have done quite a bit of weekend travelling so when it comes to packing, I reckon I am pretty good. I am very low maintenance and all about convenience. I generally have 1 day/night time time outfit, 1 pair of shoes, pjs, undergarments, toiletries and very little skincare and cosmetics. Believe it or not, my husband packs more than I do! Yep thats right.

This weekend, I chose to wear denim with denim. It was comfortable, casual and makes a great day/night time outfit for a low key getaway. Last but not least, its the outfit I chose to celebrate the fact that I haven’t purchased a single item of clothing for myself in 3 months! One quarter down and three quarters to go.

Til next time. xx
