Every day should be a weekend

The past few weekends have been amazing, spending lots of time with friends, enjoying the sunshine, heading out for drinks with friends, + taking some shots with my new camera. This weekend just gone the bestie & I cured our hang overs with Sunday Sizzler breakfast, then a trip down to Rockingham for a late lunch, to relax on the beach + swim til 9.30pm. The next day my friend Monique & I braved the heat to visit the zoo + took a few shots of the animals. The elephants were my favourites :) For Australia day we headed to my brothers friends house for pre drinks, & then we were meant to head down to the foreshore to watch the fireworks, unfortunately a few of us lost track of time & ended up staying on having more drinks. Here are a few pics from the weekend...

I hope all you Aussies had an awesome Australia Day :-) xxx

New Shades

As mentioned in my last post, I purchased a few pairs of sunnies whilst on holidays. The folding Wayfarers are probably my favourites as they're so compact, have a cute little pouch, they're comfortable + actually suit me, where as the normal Wayfarers didn't.

OPI Strawberry Margarita is my fave shade for summer. I don't know what I did before OPI Drip Dry! This stuff is great, dries super fast & no more smudges! I really recommend this!

I've been playing around with my new camera, learning how to use it etc so expect some posts in the future with some of my test shots. All of the above were taken on my new camera. :)

I start my new job tomorrow, a little nervous & excited at the same time. Met with my team on Friday and they all seem like lovely people. Better get to bed so I'm all fresh for my first day. Hope everyone has a great week! :)

Holidays are coming to an end

I have the weekend left before heading back to work on Monday. :( I've had an amazing 2 1/2 weeks off, spent time with awesome friends & family, gone on picnics, eaten out at so many delicious places, chilled at the beach, seen some great movies - Avatar & Sherlock Holmes, enjoyed a cocktail or 5, discovered a new love for wine, had girly sleep overs with scary movies, enjoyed a Sizzler breakfast (yummy!) and shopped too much. These are my 2 fave purchases of my holidays; Chloe Tilia sunglasses (as seen on Leighton Meester & Rachel Bilson, my favourites!), and Canon 1000D (Finally! :) ) I've gone a little nuts on sunglasses this last week, I will share pictures in future posts. 

Can't wait to get out and take some shots with my camera! My bf has just purchased a Canon 50D so we're going to head out together this weekend and learn how to use them! Also have a boating trip planned on Sunday with some lovely friends.
My first new years resolution is to cut back on my spending and save a decent amount by the end of the year.
I start my new job at the same company on the 18th of Jan, so looking forward to it! Hopefully it all goes well :)

Thanks to all for your lovely comments & emails over the holidays! I really appreciate you all for taking the time to read & comment on my blog xxx
