Happy Holidays

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas! And that all of you lucky enough to have a break, are relaxing and having a blast :) I'm stoked to have a much needed 2 1/2 weeks off. The weekend before Christmas I had a fun night out for a friends 21st Masquerade Party, hence the feathered mask below. The next day was really hot, so the boy, my brother, his girlfriend & I headed down to Fremantle for lunch. We had delicious fish & chips at Kailis & cooled off by the water.

After lunch we went up to Kings Park to get some photos (my brother put together 2 really cute picture frames with photos of us for our parents for Christmas.)

I love this photo of my brother & his gf walking towards the sunlight in their matching tshirts :)
I had a wonderful Christmas day, up early to open presents, then over to the boyfriends for lunch with his family, then back to mine for dinner with my family. I received such awesome & thoughtful presents that everyone knew I would love :)
I actually received 2 picnic baskets, one from the parents & one from the boy, so I have to return one. Can't wait to take this out tomorrow for a picnic up at Kings Park :) I also got Ed Hardy Eternal Love perfume (smells so yummy!) a white picture frame, jewellery, + a digital set top box from the parents.

Lush goodies from the lovely Monique & also the boy. Navy & white canvas beach tote from my brothers girlfriend :)

The Guess necklace is from my brother, I absolutely love it! The Tiffany & Co Paloma Picasso Loving Heart Ring is from my bf, it's so gorgeous irl! Sadly it's too small (only fits my pinky) so I am swapping the size over on Tuesday when I head into the city to hopefully pick up some bargains.

Things are heating up in Perth at the moment, summer is definitely here! I'm looking forward to enjoying my holidays with friends & family, getting out in the sunshine & using my new picnic basket & beach bag, having cocktails by the water & having a bunch of friends over for New Years.

I hope you all have an amazing end to 2009! :)

Sorry for the absence in posting, my internet at home has been so slow lately, it takes too long to upload pics etc. I've also been too exhausted to jump on the net after work. Hopefully things are looking up now, with 2 1/2 weeks off for Christmas, and then new career prospects in the early new year *Fingers crossed*

I thought I'd start with a few photos of my favourite things at the moment. This vase is on top of my jewellery box, with the products I use daily. I got these apricot coloured roses yesterday from Coles, they're super pretty. My favourite make up products that I use religiously - MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer, Max Factor False Lash Mascara, MAC Dazzleglass Creme in Perfectly Unordinary, MAC Patisserie, MAC Hug Me, Clean & Clear moisturiser, MAC carbon eyeshadow. I also use MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Natural in Light/Medium (not pictured.) Also love this Diva pearl cocktail ring, vanity mirror from Howards Storage World. My brothers girlfriend got back from Bali this week and brought me back this little bracelet. Apparently it's made out of Aussie coins.

I wasn't really looking for a new phone, until last weekend when I was playing with a friends iPhone. The next day I headed to the Mac store & purchased the white 3gs 32gb iPhone! I am so in love with this, I can surf the net all day (which is perfect as work now monitors internet usage) & I am addicted to the apps :)

I did a bit of shopping today and picked up these adorable little butterfly earrings. This swallow necklace was a gift from a friend at work. :)

I am loving Lush products lately. I was recommended Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser by Nikki, and instantly loved how soft & glowy my skin was. After doing some research on youtube I decided to try mixing it with Sea Salt (which smells yummy!) My skin has been so smooth, soft & blemish free lately. I really recommend trying these products.

I saw this Jeanswest dress on the website this morning and fell in love with the colour. I pushed it & the matching belt, which will be perfect for this hot weather :)
