    Crazy To Go Solo?

    You will be surprised with the amount of times that I was asked if I was crazy when I told people that at the last-minute (2 weeks before) I was going to go on holiday . . . by myself. My mum was the first to question my sanity, she even tried to sabotage me . . . okay sabotage is a strong word . . . more like gently encourage me to change my mind, cancel that flight and go to see my aunt and uncle for a week in Southeast Asia. Thankfully, the many calls to my aunt went unanswered. And I had already done my research! It…

    Holiday in Lisbon

    Although I had this amazing holiday last year, I enjoyed it so much I was dying to talk about it on my blog. Instead I told everyone at work that would listen, still do. Let me set the scene for you; all the way back in May, me and a group of my friends were determined to go on holiday together. Mostly because one of my friends was like “I need to go on holiday for my birthday! You, you and you are joining me!” the only thing to say to a request like that is “for how long, and where are we going!” like I was every going to…

    New Year, New Healthy Focused You

    What can I say… it has been ages! 2015 was too dramatic and busy. But with a new year, there is a new focus and opportunities to make 2016 amazing! First a look back on 2015; What was on the Bucket List last year? Go on holiday. Save money. Cook and Bake more. Sew and blog. Be healthy and exercise. Save money . . . and buy a designer bag . . . (okay maybe shouldn’t have put those together!) Win the lottery (that could help pay for the designer bags I need in my life!) Get inspired and do something about it. Take pictures more often What I did…

    2015 Bucket List

    Even though it is . . . like June . . . it is never too late for a . . . erm; mid year bucket list creating. It is never too late . . . well unless it is like November. That would be stupidly awkward. But it is something that I like and is a great way to get stuff done. I think I did pretty well on ticking off some of my Bucket List for 2014. The major thing that I wanted to achieve; and to be honest I wasn’t sure that it was actually going to happen; like getting a new job, I wasn’t just offered…

    Bucket List Buster Weekend

    So it was my birthday recently, don’t ask how old, a lady never tells. And to be honest; I wasn’t really planning on doing much for my birthday. I’m at the age where I don’t go “Woohoo! I’m another year older!” its more like “boohoo!” So this year; I assumed would be not different. The months leading up to my birthday, I thought I would be happy with dinner and hanging out with my friends. It wasn’t until my birthday was looming when I thought that I really wanted to do something different and celebrate my birthday. What was that something? It wasn’t a party! Too much effort and I…

    Wow! So Miracles Actually Do Happen

    I honestly didn’t think that I would be saying this so soon. But I have seriously good news . . . for me! (Waves hands in the air and says “woop woop”) . . . Okay, I promise that I won’t do that again, like ever! Let me start from the very beginning, the story isn’t that long. Around 2 months ago I made that crazy leap to leave the place that I had worked for 3 year and 10 months. I did have people in my team and friends tell me that I was super crazy for doing this, even after I had left, people were still telling me…

    I Might Have Done Something A Little Bit Crazy

    I think it has been about 1 month and a couple of weeks since I have last really had the chance to add anything to my blog. Mostly it was because I was working and exhausted, a part of it was because I was spending all my free time trying to finish the coral coloured skirt for my Make For Less Challenge (was actually finished then had to start all over again). And lastly because I was spending some of my other free time thinking. My last post (like back in May) was about missing out on getting The Dream Job. Even though, I had written about it, constantly thought…

    In The Pursuit Of Happiness

    For the past month, I’ve been a bit M.I.A on my blog. Usually I might miss a post one week out of the whole month. The past month or two, I think it has been a bit more than one or two here or there. It’s not because I’m bored of my blog (never) not because I have run out of ideas, (with the Make For Less Challenge I’ve seen a few more things I want to make, so that’s unlikely). It’s mostly to do with work, not just because I’m exhausted, though that is a factor. It is because I almost had the chance to get the perfect job.…

    Bucket List . . . Epic Fail

    It’s May already! Why is the year going by so quickly? I haven’t had any time to get anything done on my bucket list. I am still doing the courses, but because of that, I’ve hardly had time to do the 1-2 post a week that I actually wanted to do. I have . . . kinda been doing the exercises; like the Wii exercises and using the exercise bike . . . but there are two reasons why I haven’t lost a respectable amount of weight. Pizza Hut and Mr Kiplings! Damn the both of you! My friends that know me well, or people who I have worked with,…

    2014 Bucket List

    I think I may have become a bit obsessed with Bucket Lists. I honestly haven’t done much on my other bucket list. Mostly because they are things I want to achieve in my life and are not so easy to do day-to-day. So randomly one day I thought, rather than make New Years Resolutions, I would create a short list of things I want to achieve this year. This ‘short list’ became this kinda long bucket list . . . Work on the Blog more – try to post at least 1-2 post per week. If you have more time, then post more. Make more effort to get out of…
