what’s the time

Emma and Roe tme 

How is it nearly Christmas?! It only feels like it was July a second ago… This year is flying by!

I’m normally the type of person who is organised for Christmas by the time December comes around. We not only have Christmas, but half our family celebrate birthdays in November and December. This makes for a very busy (and costly) time of year. This year I still have one last present to get.

My birthday is the week before Christmas; (yes another year older this week); I need to look for myself too!

I have been looking for a new watch since my last one battery died. Yes probably any normal person would replace the battery but I decided I wanted a new one.

I had been investigating options when I was contacted by Emma and Roe! When I looked at their range, not only did I fall in love with all their pieces but I discovered their beautiful watch range. I’ve been right into rose gold of late. I’ve been a gold girl since I was born but I love having something a little different. Add the grey band and it was the perfect watch. They have an incredible watch collection and I recommend you taking a look!

Emma and Roe have incredible pieces and I already have my eyes focused on a stacker ring! Might have to wait until next year!

This watch was gifted, however all opinions are my own.

santa claus is coming…

Santa Claus is coming to leopold

The girls and I headed to Gateway Plaza Leopold on Saturday. It was to not only have our photo taken with the man in red, but to have breakfast with Santa as well!

I knew it would be a challenge with Miss F as she is very determined. Although she likes the idea of Santa I knew she would be a little sketchy on the old man in red.

We first got to go and have breakfast with around 50 other children where Santa made a guest appearance. The kids all were very excited and loved their time playing and yelling for Santa. Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer also made a guest appearance! Lots of songs were sung and a few Christmas games and it was so wonderful to watch the delight on their faces. I really do love this time of year, so many happy people and so much cheer!

Last year was a challenge when we went to visit Santa. She was 13 months and aware of stranger danger. She wasn’t sure about the man in red. Lucky mum got to jump in the photo.
This year she knew exactly what was happening! In theory she thought it was a great idea, but without her nap and not knowing Santa, it didn’t quite go to plan! Frankie wouldn’t have any of it and instead of wasting the cute outfits and opportunities I decided to still get Lola with Santa. It turned out super cute!

UPDATE:  I was able to get my hands on three of the outtakes and thought I had to include them!! They are very funny and tell the story of Frankie not been so keen! I had to post as this is real life!!

I’d love to hear your Santa photo stories…

3 outift ideas for christmas day

3 outfits for Christmas

It’s Christmas eve and I know your all thinking what I’m thinking… What am I going to wear tomorrow for the big Christmas Day lunch?

Since I was a little kid, my mum has always instilled in me that you get dressed up and have a special Christmas outfit to wear. As a result I put a lot of thought into my chrissy outfits and make sure that I wear something special.

I have put together  3 outfit ideas for Christmas day. These are different looks to give you some inspiration when choosing what you will wear for a delicious lunch or dinner or both!

This first look is a simple tank top and skirt. I love wearing a lot of colour and wearing something I am going to be comfortable in. It has pockets which I love having in skirts plus can easily add a cardi for the unpredictable Melbourne weather!

Mint Country Road Tank

Unique skirt

 

I was wearing:

My second look is about really dressing up and playing around in a beautiful skirt. Again lots of colour, with pockets! It can easily be dressed back with some flat sandals and again can have a cardi added for warmth.

St Frock

Flower skirt

Kirsty

I was wearing:

The last outfit is a casual chic look. Some jeans with a nice top. I have dressed up with heels but again can easily wear some cute sandals with the outfit. Who can go wrong with leopard and stripes?!

I can not believe Christmas is under 4 weeks away. How did that happen?!

I thought I’d put together a wish list for some inspiration and ideas for some great gift for Christmas.  All these products are from local stores in Geelong because I believe in buying local to support the local shops! I have been blown away but what is on offer around Geelong of late and so many great shops are popping up.

Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope you all had the most wonderful day with family and friends or maybe travelling the world.

This was my Christmas Eve outfit I had on to do a few last minute tasks. I had so much fun doing this photo shoot. We went down to the river in Barwon Heads and found a great spot. These photos turned out better than planned and I’m really happy with them!

Merry Christmas everyone!

party dress

Sunny Girl Dress

Friday night was my man’s Christmas Party. Partners get invited which is always lovely and even better knowing it’s at a winery! It’s also another great excuse to wear a dress and I thought I’d bring the festive element in the form of my red shoes!

Decjuba Red Shoes

We headed to Oakdene for dinner which is sooooo yummy! The food is delicious and presentation is brilliant. I’m actually kind of sad I didn’t take more food shots to show everyone. 

Marinated Beetroot Salad

Marinated Beetroot Salad

Oakdene is a winery down on the Bellarine Peninsula and a quick 5 minute drive from my house which is always a good start. As is was the boyf’s night, I took on the driver role, as it was only fair.

The meal was delicious, service was brilliant and the wine spectacular! A very fun night.  I highly recommend to everyone to go there!

yellow skirt ~ black out

Black Out

I can’t believe its December. Where has this year gone?! I do love December as it’s my birthday month and even more so this year as we are heading to Japan to go snowboarding over Christmas & New Year!!

I had my first Chrissy catch up yesterday, with three of the girls I’ve grown up with. As well as Black Out I felt like being colourful and put on my yellow skirt which I just love. It’s so flowy and I feel  little “boho” in it.
