welcome 2018

Someone once said to me as you get older the years get shorter! I can not believe how true that is and here we are starting 2018.

Last year had so many ups and downs! I realise that is adulthood, but boy we had so much happen in such a short time. So many lessons were learnt and one of the biggest was how important amazing friends and family are! I am so grateful for my village and those that surround me!

Last year our biggest achievement was growing our family from three to four! I love been a mum and so lucky to have my two precious girls! They love each other so much and I love the way they both always looking for each other… no doubt that will change but for now I’m loving this stage. I also love the way they adore their dad and the love he has for his three girls (me included).

Late last year we had our wonderful friend Kiah come to visit and she captured some amazing images of us with the girls. We didn’t have a lot of time but I love she still got some great shots as we walked around Geelong. Andrew and I love photos that capture the moment and she did an amazing job! You have to go look at her work here

I thought it was a great time to show my family as I commit to writing so much more this year and getting right into the swing of blogging. Especially to talk more about Geelong and the incredible town it is becoming! My brother had friends down over New Year and he showed them around and they loved it! I want the world to see that and all there is to offer.

Plus I still have to talk about fashion as that’s what I started this for plus motherhood… That is who I am and the direction I’m going. I hope you continue to follow the journey and please tell your villages about my little voice here. I’d love to hear your feedback and if you want to see, hear anything from me…

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope it’s a wonderful 2018!

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…
