Monday Top 5 – 16th April

Here are the Top 5 things that made my Monday great:

1. My new issue of Frankie magazine arrived in the mail today

My lovely housemate Anthony bought me a subscription for Christmas, so it’s the gift that keeps on giving! He’s a keeper, my Anthony!

2. I purchased Lush’s face moisturiser, Imperialis, with the rest of my birthday money

I’ve been using the cleansers and soaps all weekend and watching my skin improve day-by-day, while slowly falling more and more in love with Lush. To top it off, I used my Cupcake mask last night in the bath, and I don’t think my skin has ever felt so soft (and I have used MUCH more expensive products in the past). After cleaning it with such beautiful products, I thought it only fair to my skin that I follow it up with a moisturiser to match, so off to Lush I went, and Imperialis is what I came out with. So far, so happy!

3. I started my day with a yoga routine

Simple, but so effective. It is easy to forget how good I feel when I start the day with yoga, and I haven’t been very devoted to it of late, so I’m very proud that I managed to motivate myself, because all day I felt blissful enough to get me through.

4. I cooked myself a delicious and nutritious dinner-for-one

Matt is away on business this week because he is a grown up, and Anthony sorts out his own meals at the moment, so for the first time in a long time, I cooked dinner just for myself. It was very easy; bbq chicken breast (the rest to be used in other meals) and stir fried veg in garlic, oregano and lemon juice. Quick, easy and oh-so delicious! And enough leftover for my lunch tomorrow.

5. I’m feeling rested

Yesterday we got back from my birthday weekend, which was a fantastic weekend in Anglesea, Victoria, filled with beach games, sunshine, canoeing, touristy times, board games and lovely mates, and I am feeling incredibly happy and better for having such a wonderful break.

So that’s my Monday Top 5. Have a wonderful week everyone!

A Lush Birthday Vlog Post

Hi all, today is my birthday, and I got to go shopping with my gorgeous bestie Belinda, and some of my birthday money, so I thought I would share with you what I bought.

This is my very first vlog, so be kind! I’ve faced my fears to record and post it, and considering I didn’t edit it all (cause I’m not tech-savvy enough, just yet), I’m happy with how it turned out.

What I did forget to mention in my video is the awesome present that Matt bought me for my birthday: a 5-lesson voucher for FLYING TRAPEZE!!! Which I am SO SO SO excited about, because I’ve been wanting to do it for years. He’s the best, and I will keep him forever! He bought it for my year of adventure and I don’t think I could ever thank him enough.

I hope you enjoy my vlog and I’ll be back after my adventure filled Birthday Weekend!

Curls & Wedges

Man, it is really difficult to take photos of yourself! I’ve really gotta hand it to those style bloggers who manage to take gorgeous photos of themselves, it took me forever, and to be honest, I’m not that stoked with the few photos that I took, but I still challenged myself, so I’m proud of myself for that.

Today I wanted to do my hair like this photo I found on http://www.polkadotbride.com/ that I found for a wedding I went to last week, then forgot about (whoops!). It’s pretty cute right? I basically curled my hair with a straightener, parted it in a similar place, and bobby pinned a few places. Probably a medium on the difficulty scale too, so yay for me!

Not too bad, ey?

And here is the only outfit post that I am happy with, because I am a picky so and so.
