In LA. Near Rodeo Drive (or along it I can't actually remember)

Hey lovelies. This is just a quick post to say HELLO! We are having such a great time here and I will try and share posts when I can. We are in San Francisco at the moment and I'm feeling run down. Trying to get used to the time zone change, battling with jet lag (still) and not eating properly has not helped. But I'm taking it easy and I'm sure I will be able to fight off this cold. I'm still having a lot of fun though :)

I hope you are all well.

Packing.... and gone tomorrow

Hello lovelies. We leave for the USA tomorrow! It still hasn't really hit me yet but I have done most of my packing. Here's most of what I'm bringing.

I had to get a teeny hairdryer because this fringe takes a lot of work. I'm sure there will be a few more items but this is mainly it. I've been so busy this weekend that the fact that we leave tomorrow just hasn't sunk in. Yesterday I had my brother Rolf and sister in law Gem's house warming and I had my 10 year high school reunion afterwards. That in itself was quite an experience (I then watched The Hunger Games at night heee!) After church this morning Jason and I had breakfast with his mum, brother and his girlfriend. And my parents are coming around tonight too. I'm so exhausted already and really not sleeping the best so I hope I can get a good night's rest tonight. 

So I'm not sure how the whole blogging overseas will go but if I have time I might have a few random posts. If I'm unable too I will be back in about 5 1/2 weeks!

Have a wonderful time :)

A little visitor

Last weekend we had some visitors come past to say good bye before we head off to the USA. Little Layla-Rose was quite excited to play with my panda eye mask (which was part of a gift for my trip from another lovely friend). 

She really is quite adorable. And her cheeks! It makes me feel so clucky again. I really wouldn't mind a little one of my own. 

Today we had a public holiday for Brisbane due to the Royal Brisbane Show or Ekka as it's more commonly known as. Jason and I spent the day doing a huge house clean. It was quite satisfying but now I feel as though I'm on holidays already but there are still two days of work left before we leave. Then this weekend is completely packed so I have to do as much trip stuff as possible. One of the things I'm going to is my 10 year high school reunion! It's scary that it has been that long but it will be nice to see some people from school. 

Next time I will try and post about my trip packing which I have finally started to do. Have a great rest of week.

It's an Outfit Post!

Cardigan- Ally
Floral Top - Forever New
Skirt - Cotton On
Shoes - Therapy from StyleTread
Necklace - Lovisa 

The weather is finally starting to feel a little warmer. I don't feel the need to have to wear tights under skirts and dresses. I thought I would try mixing patterns today. Floral and polka dots. I also chose floral for Megan of Time After Tea. She has a request to send her a photo on how you rock florals. Check out the link to that post to read more about it. 

This is me with my nephew Micah after church with his crazy hair. I know I said I would share his story soon but I might wait awhile before I share it. He's such a funny little fella. 

Also it's my last week before we are off to the USA. I will be sharing a few of my travels items soon. Four days of work since we have a public holiday mid week. Thank you Royal Brisbane show for a day off. We plan on doing a full house clean before we leave so we come home to a clean house. 

I am thinking about how to battle jet lag seeing as we leave midday on the 20th but arrive at 7am on the 20th. That completely wacks me out to arrive on the same day as leaving?! So we are going back in time in a sense :p 

Have an awesome week!

A Small Life Update...with a few unicorns

1. My latest journal and a unicorn sticker
2. A pretty print on the wall in the lounge room
3. One of my fave wedding photos with my bridesmaids and a unicorn sticker appeared

Hello lovelies. I'm having a great time playing around with my camera. So a lot of my posts will be full of random photos. 

It's just under two weeks until our USA holiday. You can not believe how much I'm hanging for this holiday. I just need a big break from work. Plus Jason and I haven't had a proper holiday since our honeymoon. I've booked all our internal flights and most of our accommodation. I'm listing what things I want to do and starting to pack my bags (I quite like packing it makes me even more excited).

In other life news, I've been watching a lot of the Olympics although the time is never great so I can only watch until a certain time before going to bed. I'm having a little cry over Australia always just missing out on gold but oh well what can you do. 

I want to share the story of my nephew Micah but I'm having a hard time figuring out what to say. I don't go into too much detail about my personal life so this is hard. I will try and share it this week some time. Do any of you have trouble writing about the more personal details of your life? 

Have a great week!
