Christmas Day




I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and got spoilt rotten. We have so many left overs from Christmas day it is such a waste. Christmas with both of our families went well apart from one argument about politics. Why oh why do people have to talk about politics I will never ever understand. Here are some pics of my prezzies, I got lots of cash as well of which I will hopefully spend on some gorgeous clothes. For those of you who have read Vampire academy there is a new spin off series from it called Bloodlines, I will let you know what it's like. I will not be posting until the New Year, so Happy New Year to you all. We are going to Byron Bay for New Years, a quiet one with just the two of us. I can't wait we have had family staying with us for a while so it will be nice to share this New years together.

My favourite vintage dress I picked up from A Little Wicked in NYC.

2/ Where did you grow up? Perth, Western Australia.

3/ If you could pick a super power what would it be? Teleportation it would make travel much cheaper!

4/ Why did you start blogging? I actually wasn't going to blog. I had been reading a number of vintage/op shoppers blogs for a couple of months and wanted to be able to comment so I made a blog. I made my first post as a test to see what it looked like and the lovely Nelly commented asking to see my vintage clothes. After that I became addicted!

5/ What direction would you like to take your blog? I'd really like to be more of style blogger but I'm pretty happy with the way it is at the moment.

6/ What one thing you eat that makes other go eeww? Pork, mayonnaise and melted cheese slice sandwiches.

7/ What's your most irrational fear? Moths, I scream like a little girl and hide when I see them. They're ugly damn it!

8/ If you were down to your last $10 what would you spend it on? I would spend it at the op shop of course hopefully on a lovely vintage dress.

9/ If your life was a tv series what show would it be? Hoarders! Only joking but my lack of ability to put things away makes me feel like I am becoming a hoarder.

10/ What always makes you giggle inappropriately? People falling over, it's horrible but I just can't help it.




11/ Who would play you in a film of your life? Emma Stone would be pretty awesome.

12/ What's the most played song on your ipod? Dreams - Fleetwood Mac. Best concert I have ever been to was Fleetood Mac.

13/ If you could choose a profession what would it be and why? A fashion buyer or a vintage clothing shop owner. A girl can dream can't she?

14/ What do you really want for Christmas? A new tattoo I think I have become addicted to them!

15/ What's your favourite Christmas carol? Have yourself a merry little Christmas!

16/ What has been your most favourite Christmas present ever? A gorgeous handmade dollhouse. It's absolutely huge and I hope to give it to a future daughter if I have one!

My Christmas Helpers

My first Chirstmas helper is Christie from While Life Passes By


Hi lovelies. Its Christie here and its a great pleasure to be sharing with you my top 5 reasons as to why I love Christmas.

No.1 - Spending time with my most loved friends and close family. Its nice to know that while Christmas is known as the busiest time of year, we all still make time to see each other and wish our friends and family a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.

No.2 - Buying gifts (any excuse for shopping makes me happy).

No.3 - Decorating my home - I love decorating my home, putting up the Christmas tree and decorating the house with Christmas ornaments while listening to Christmas songs by Michael Buble.

No.4 - Food - While I try to eat healthy most of the year, on Christmas day I really look forward to stuffing my face with roast lamb and potato bake.

No.5 - Appreciating what I have. Christmas time for has always been a time where I reflect back on the year that will shortly end and be thankful for all that I have. Sometimes when life gets busy we often forget to realise how blessed we really are, and how worse off it could be. Christmas is a time to be thankful for all that we have.

A Christmas Read



I have just finished reading "This Year It Will Be Different" by Maeve Binchey. The book is full of short stories about Christmas. Some stories are sad and some are funny and you can relate to all of them in some way. As the back of the book states, "The festive season may be magical, but it can also be a time of family difficulties, a time to reflect on relationships; a time of change. I really did enjoy the book normally when it's just short stories I get frustrated because I want more, with this it's just enough to make you fall in love with each character and relate to their Christmas.

More Christmas Catch Up's



How cute are these Lego figurines I so want one. My Husbands boss gave everyone in his team a Lego figurine. Poor Jeremy was the only one who ended up with the girly one. All the more fun for me.


We caught up with a girlfriend of mine and her family at the beach it was such a lovely Morning. I bought her daughter Bella a girly pack of pink goodies with sunglasses,bangles,necklace, hair clips and hairbands. I have never seen a little girls face light up so much. I knew I did well by the smile on her face and that she immediately had to wear all of the items straight away.

How awesome are the presents we received a Duplex mouse, cactus toothpick holder, Zorro BBQ tool and the sweetest tea set ever.



This is what I wore to my Christmas lunch catch up with the branch that I work with.

and these are my new favourite shoes so cheap and so comfy Yay!

Chirstmas Party


OK, so ages ago I was ranting about a new favourite dress that I had just bought. Well this is the little gem I absolutely adore it and can't believe that it has taken me this long to wear it.



I had my first Christmas party last night it was with my old team that I used to work with at the beginning of the year. It was so good to catch up with them all.


This was my secret Santa present, Kamapootra 52 positions to do a poo. It is absolutely hilarious if you have a warped sense of humour like I do. I have posted a couple of pages from the book for those who are as gross as I am.

Rugby 7's




Friday and Saturday of last week I was at the Goldy for the Rugby 7's. Jeremys family shouted us to the games.It is so not my thing, but I had the best time ever. Next year I am wearing a costume and really getting into the spirit of it all. Jeremy's parents live in Fiji so they were going for Fiji and my Grandad is from Wales and loves his Rugby so I went for Wales. At the end of the day Fiji won the whole tournament and the atmosphere was amazing as there was so many Fijians at the game. I was constantly getting goosebumps from the atmosphere around me. Does anyone else get goosebumps from strange things? I also get them when hearing someone sing a beautiful song or a brilliant bit in a movie and occasionally I get them during a really good advert. Yeah OK I am a weirdo hehehe. Have a good end of the week XXX

My Date With Harry X


Sorry for my lack of posting but I have been extremely busy and will post about it all very shortly. On Wednesday Hubby and I flew to Sydney for the day for the Harry Potter Exhibition. I was pretty chuffed as I was chosen from the crowd to have the sorting hat placed above my head and I got placed into Hufflepuff house. The Exhibition was interesting but I expected so much more from it and not being able to take photos was a real bummer. It was so cute to see the costumes from the "Philosopher's Stone" and seeing how small they all were. Sorry no other photos from the day to show you though cause it was bucketing down.
