The week in review

Hey friends!

I am currently writing this before it is even light outside ugh Winter. Don’t you hate when you can sleep in on the weekend but your body has other ideas? Especially when you know you really need the sleep like I do. My day is gonna be jam-packed so I need all the beauty sleep I can get. I promised my friend that I would go running with her which seemed like a great idea at the time but in my current bleary-eyed state it feels a little optimistic.

Hello friends!

Our internet went down this morning which is why this post is so late. That and I also slept in and got distracted watching Youtube videos at my brother’s flat when I was supposed to be studying. But here we are nonetheless. Another week under our belts. I hope you have had a marvelous week. I always think my week has been very dull until I sit down to write these posts and suddenly I remember all the exciting things that happened. It is a sign of my age that I now get excited about new appliances and comfortable chairs in cafes.

Hey friends!

Welcome to a new week. Did you have a good weekend? I feel extra relaxed because I went back home to visit my parents this weekend and took Monday off. Can three day weekends always be a thing please and thank you! I took my Mum to the park on Sunday and made her be my photographer so I could frolick in the autumn leaves. It was really fun (for me anyway.) Mum had this uncanny knack for capturing me with my eyes closed though. This got me thinking, it’s about time I shared a little behind the scenes action with you all again…so here we are!

Hey friends!

So this post is going up a little late because I got up super duper early this morning to run my quarter marathon (applause is mandatory.) I’m not gonna say too much because I’ll spill all the deets in tomorrow’s ‘Weekly Whimsy’ email (sign up for that right here!) But let’s just say I did waaaay better than I was expecting and now I feel like I’m on top of the world. I’m invincible. I am strong, fierce and ready for anything. I am also lying flat on my couch like a deflated balloon 😉 What a champ.

Hello friends!

Happy weekend. I’m not so happy about it because it means that our break is almost over. Classes start again on Monday which I am looking forward to about as much as getting my wisdom teeth removed (ugh.) But we have a saying around here which goes like this: “There is nothing that a little coffee and glitter can’t fix.” So I am thinking a hazelnut latte and my sparkly ballet flats are in order come Monday morning. Whatever the coming week looks like for you, remember to take a break this weekend and reset so you can smash your goals the rest of the week.

Hello friends!

Happy weekend. The last of our hot cross buns have been eaten and the chocolate bunnies have only got their feet left eep. April is pretty much over and the leaves are just starting to turn that beautiful, brilliant red. And I’m sitting here trying to pretend that winter isn’t just around the corner and I don’t have a heck of a lot of study to do before classes start again. So much for having a productive break ha! I’ve got home and literally just blobbed for an entire week. But I think that’s what we kinda need. University is all go-go-go and the stress and lack of sleep take a toll on your body.

Hey friends!

This has been one of those crazy weeks. So I think my lecturers got together and decided to test my sanity by scheduling all of my tests, assignments and lab reports on the same week. I bet they all sat there rubbing their hands together and cackling with evil laughs…I can just see it. For real tho, why do lecturers always do that? You just get on top of one thing and another gets flung your way.

17 blogs you need to follow this year

Hey friends!

Since I started my blog way back in 2014, I have become an avid blog reader myself. I unknowingly stepped into this world of social media and Instagram friend dating and somehow I made myself at home here. And blog reading (much like shoe shopping) is addictive, once you start reading one you find another 10 equally awesome ones that you just HAVE to read too.

Hello friends!

Happy New Year! I hope you had a fun time welcoming 2017 in. We had a little family shin-dig which was just the best. There is nothing like gathering around a table, sharing a delicious meal (thanks Mum!) and laughing together about all the things that make a family great (namely the older folks new year’s resolutions.)

My family’s Christmas traditions

Hey friends!

It’s Christmas Eve! Even though there is brilliant sunshine streaming through the window, I am 95% certain it is going to snow tonight. I don’t care if it is summer in the Southern hemisphere…I want snow! So our Christmas is gonna be a little different this year. ¾ of the extended family that usually pour through our door and fill the house with general commotion, won’t be joining us.
