So I have been doing terribly with my project bikini body as I was recently put on medication for this strange lump on my leg and I had an allergic reaction and have basically been resting for a week. How boring. I plan on going back to the gym starting Tuesday. I hate having breaks because then when I start back again, I have to ease in to it and I get really sore.

I was thinking about documenting my project in pictures but I'm not sure I'm confident enough to post photos of my body the way it is at the moment. When/if I get more toned I will post before and after pictures.

My dream; Katy Perry. She is perfection in every way to me. I would kill to have her body(her face too actually).

I am going to start packing some stuff away tomorrow for my upcoming move. I have only ever moved house with my family and I was quite young so I don't really remember it and when I moved in with my boyfriend he was already living here so I just gradually bought my stuff over.

I am not entirely sure about where to start with moving and what should be packed first, what should be packed last & things like that.

If you have any tips, please let me know.

I have been trying to avoid shopping lately as all my bills all seemed to arrive at once; Car registration, car insurance, contents insurance, gas, water, phone, internet, mobile, credit card. All due within a week of each other. Yuck. I'm also trying to avoid shopping so there is less to pack when we move. I'm sure it won't last, though I have been very good lately.

This weekend was pretty relaxed which is what I needed.
Next weekend I have a 21st with a Disney theme. I was originally intending on going as Belle from Beauty & The Beast in the full yellow gown but I could not find one anywhere and it would have been very expensive to make.

I really didn't want to go as 'slutty' anything but I wasn't left with much of an option with the party being so close and me being so clueless about what to go as.

So I am going as slutty Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. Thank god the back of the dress has a floor length cape so there is no chance of my ass making an appearance.

I bought my outfit off eBay for $50 and it arrived the other day. Terrible quality and a very, very small sized medium. I'll post photos of it next weekend.

Hope everyone is having a great day.

I was having a bad day from the second I got out of bed today.
Then, this morning while my boyfriend was out helping his mother move house I decided to jump in the shower and when I came out of the shower there was a single, perfect, red rose in a vase on the bench for me.
It is things like that that make me fall in love with him all over again.
He is so sweet & thoughtful.

Tony Bianco have decided to re-make and re-release these babies.

They are available for pre-order now and I must, repeat MUST own these. But for the life of me I cannot decide which pair to get. The pair on the left are nude and the pair on the right are champage.
Please, please, please help me decide!
Which do you prefer?



It's finally starting to feel like spring. Yesterday the sun was shining almost all day and at one point I changed from pants to shorts(that may have been because I was cleaning and working up a sweat though lol). When the weather gets a little bit warmer there just seems to be something in the air. I can almost smell christmas. Can you believe it's only 101 days away? I need to get my ass in to gear and do some shopping as I am notorious for doing all my shopping in one day, usually on abotu the 22nd of December. This year I'm going to go to Melbourne and do all my christmas in one day with a couple of girlfriends.

Usually by this time, I have a christmas list constructed in my mind. Almost always consisiting of a new bikini, make-up, clothes, something electriconic(camera, phone etc) but this year all I really want is to deck my house out. I have officially become domesticated. How sad. But to be honest, I enjoy it.

A few friends of friends have moved out of home recently and after visiting their houses I'm gobsmacked. So many people treat their homes like crap.

I take a lot of pride in my appearance, I always have, so it was only natural that when I moved in to my own house that I would take a lot of pride in the appearance of my home too. I'm just suprised that I seem to be one of few. I try so hard to keep my house immaculate and I hoenstly don't mind cleaning it because it makes me feel proud of where I live when it's so spotless.

I'm not lucky enough to have a whole heap of spare money at my disposal to go out and buy couchs that cost in the thousands or to buy an 800 dollar entertainment unit, but I do the best with what I have and I upgrade as I can afford it. If I had a lot more money you can bet my home would look completely different but it's not necessarily the furnishings in a house that make it nice. I keep it fresh and bright with flowers and photos and as little clutter as possible in a small unit.

It would appear I'm rambling and I'm sorry. I will do a post with some pretty pictures later

Last week I bought this bra from Bras N Things

[Clearly this is not me. Photo taken from]

Anyway, so I bought this bra sometime last week. You can't see by ths photo but the back of the bra is lace, not the meshy type stuff that a lot of bras are. It's also able to be a strapless bra.

I tried it on and loved it, so I took it home and washed it and I wore it yesterday and it has been giving me hell. I have imprints of the lace on my sides, just my sides, not my back, and the wire on the sides is digging into me every now and then. You are probably thinking that I bought an ill-fitting bra but I didn't. It fits perfectly, it just digs in when I lay down etc. It's making me feel like I have a rash(because the lace rubs on my skin) and it's really not comfortable but it's such a gorgeous bra.

I was wearing it when I caught up with my best friend and I showed her the damage and she seems to think it's not an 'everyday bra' and that it's supposed to be for sexy occassions or whatever. My boyfriend and my mother agree with her.

So, what I want to know is, what do you think?

I personally don't own any plain bras except for my sports bras. All of mine are 'sexy' I suppose you would say? I figure if I have to spend a lot of money to get a decent bra that fits and supports I might aswell get a gorgeous one.

And furthermore, I don't know that I even have 'sexy occasions'. Does sexy occassion mean trying to wow your boyfriend? Because I don't walk around in my bra and hope he jumps my bones.

I just believe that a bra can/should not only be supportive but really pretty aswell.
I'm in a bit of a pickle because I love this bra, it's a perfect fit (minus the lace rubbing on my skin).

Obviously I cannot return it as I have washed and worn it. I just don't see myself wearing it beause it's agony which means I have just thrown away $64.99.

Has this ever happened to you? Any advice or opinions on anything I've talked about?
Feedback would be greatly appreciated.

This weekend my town and surrounding towns were put on a high flood warning. It absolutely bucketed and when there was a calm in the storm I walked down the hill we live on that has the tiniest little creek to see what it looked like. I took some photos while I was there. Next to the trees there is usually just a big piece of empty land.

I assure you, the town I live in, isn't usually this ugly.



Today I have been with my boyfriend for four years. We started dating shortly after my 16th birthday. I really cannot believe it's been four years. I never thought my first boyfriend would be only boyfriend, or that it would last this long. Crazy the way the world works. So in honour of our aniversary, I am doing this quiz I stole from Domestic Divinity. If you are not following her, you should. She is so funny and gorgeous! This is the 'Hunky Husband Survey'. Obvously I am not married. Sadly, I am not even engaged, but I'm doing this survey anyway :)

How long have you been together?
Four years today =D

How old is he?

Who said I love you first?
I can't exactly remember, which makes me a bit sad. I know we both said it very early and it was mutual but I think the words actually came out of his mouth first.

Who eats more?
Him for sure.

Who is taller?
Nick. I come up to just under his shoulders I think.

Whose temper is worse?
Mine without a doubt. It takes a lot to piss him off.

Who does the laundry?
I do. Even before I was living with him, I would take his laundry to my house and do it because he didn't have a washing machine hahaha

Who sings better?
He is a really good singer. He does gigs and stuff sometimes too.

Who is smarter?
Uhh, I don't know. I guess I'm more 'book smart' but he is by no means stupid.

Who does the dishes?

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
Me. He sleeps closest to the door. I read somewhere men subconsciously like to sleep closer to the door to protect against intruders.

Who pays the bills?
I physically transfer the money or go to the post office and take cae of them but I don't really think how the money in a relationship works is anybody's business but ours.

Who mows the lawn?
What lawn? haha

Who cooks dinner?
Nick. Always. I'm banned from the kitchen unless I'm baking.

Who drives when you are together?
Not me. I suck

Who is more stubborn?
I am.

Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?
Whoever is wrong. We rarely fight, and when we do, it doesn't last long.

Whose parents do you see the most?
Mine. Nick's family doesn't treat me very nicely. My family love him like a son. Go figure.

Who has more friends?
He does

Who has more siblings?
We both have 2 brothers.

Was it love at first sight?
Absolutely not.

I am so excited right now. WINTER IS OFFICIALLY OVER! Thank god! I know it will probably still be cold for a few weeks but I am already excited for the warm weather. I absolutely hate winter. There are never enough layers of clothing to be warm, my feet go numb in my heels and to be honest, I could list a thousand things I hate about winter. But spring &summer, I feel warm just thinking about it. Crisp whites and soft nudes, vibrant florals, sunkissed skin, sunny days, bare legs &short dresses, swimming, sitting under the airconditioner in my underwear while eating an ice cream. I really cannot wait.

As today is the first day of spring, I was hoping that by some miracle it would be a gorgeous day today, but looking out my loungeroom window all I am seeing is a sky filled with clouds and no sun anywhere, my hands are cold and I'm all rugged up with my heater on, so here are some photo's to get myself and possibly you in the mood for spring. . .
