Plane Tickets : WanderLust

I am that girl that is always buying plane tickets. It makes sense because I am in a long distance relationship. Going back to the place I know, and lived for the longest I have anywhere else in my life.
Being able to notice every little thing that has changed. It may be an adventure but it doesn't feel like that. I do love to visit don't get me wrong. I long for when I move there in November that then I may be able to spend that money on new adventures, not knowing where I am and being able to just explore. Have fun enjoy the moment.

I wont have to travel to see my boy. So I long for the time when we can travel together or even when I can solo travel. Feeling the travel bug coming on. I think it is a great thing to travel while you are young before a lot of the sucky adult responsibilities kick in. So I cannot wait till I am sharing with you guys more of my crazy, amazing exotic adventures. Seeing the beauty of the world, like Princess Jasmine one the magic carpet.

Until then I will be enjoying life.
Making the most of the known everyday happenings, not taking anything for granted.

With Love,

Adventure : Ice Skating

Hey everyone!
Recently I was on a trip to the Gold Coast. I had heaps of fun on this trip.
In this trip we went Ice Skating, I have a decent amount of experience Ice skating so I thought I would be okay. The thing about Ice skating is that it is NOT like riding a bike! Every single time I do it lately I am horrible. I blame this on not having great balance. I still have blisters from this experience.

You may be wondering why I am sharing this experience with you. It is because I want to tell you that is was a lot of fun, the next day I was at Dream World and I was like I want to be Ice skating right now. Even though I fell on my butt a lot I still had so much fun. I made friends and gained a new experience. I was honestly nervous to do this, fall in front of everyone.

That in mind I think everyone should do things out of your comfort zone. It can be as simple as Ice Skating. New experiences build you as a person. Pushing yourself will lead you to achieve great things no one has every achieved much staying in the safety bubble. You may find something you love, I really enjoy this and would love to actually develop a the skill.

So my friends do something this week that pushes you out of your comfort zone!
Hope you enjoy the photos that I have to share of it, it was a really nice rink.

Moving: Packing Tips

Hey Everyone!

Moving, this has almost become my specialty. In about 12 months by the end of the year i will have moved 3 times. Kinda crazy I know. 

Though I figured that i meant i am qualified for giving you tips. Especially when two of three of these moves will be interstate. and more then just the next one over!

Let me know in the comments if this is something you would be interested to hear more about over the next few weeks.

So today I will be telling you about packing tips: 

When deciding what to take to your new house you are likely to get rid of a lot of stuff. Most people don't go through there stuff and get rid of what you don't need regularly enough. 
This is a list of things you may want to consider, or what you should  generally get rid of (of courser there are exceptions):
- expired things anything that you are holding on to thats expired should go( (ie coupons, makeup, food)
- old things you dont use or need, like mail or just junk hanging around your house
- outgrown clothes, socks without pairs
- broken things you are holding on to saying you will fix but probably never will
- stuff you don't use
- things you don't like but don't want to get rid of in the thought of wasting your money 

When should you pack things? 

4 weeks out of move
- Pictures , decor, books, off season clothes 
3 weeks out of move 
-linen, knick knacks, board games, things you are storing, craft supplies
2 weeks out of move
-toiletries, kitchen, start clothes and closets, office supplies
1 week out of move
- clothes, rest of kitchen, electronics, medication and toys (if ya have kids)

* Bonus tip you can get boxes for free from places like grocery stores or other stores, I would recommend looking around. 

  Good luck,

Circle Mirror Decor Trend

Hey everyone, 

Recently I have been seeing a lot of the circle mirror decor in houses. I love this trend if I am honest. I think it is really pretty and goes in so many places. 
Here is a list of some of the reasons I love it:
- It is such a simple way to add something to a room. 
- It goes well because it doesn't have to be perfectly angled. 
- Works well with a minimalistic look but with any look too.
- Also works in small places 

Here are some pretty ways I have seen it used on Pinterest:

Why Not to Wear Make-Up Every Day

Hey everyone!
Just a little disclaimer if you feel the need to wear it everyday thats okay you do you!
These are just some interesting things about wearing make-up I found, or thought of.

When you stop wearing make up you have Extra Time this is a great thing to have in your life. Think about how long you spend doing your make-up everyday and all the things you could do with that time. I mean even sleeping in a little bit longer would be nice!

When you stop wearing make-up as often you feel extra pretty when you do wear it, also as someone who doesn't wear it to work (it isn't fun to wear it where I work) when I perhaps do I cant think of a time where I haven't been complimented on looking extra pretty that day.

You will save money ! Using less product should mean that you spend less money. Ideally wearing less make-up will mean that you spend less on makeup.

Some other things that fascinated me is you will notice about not wearing make-up are:

1. It fills your pores with silicon
A lot of make-up has silicon in it, this is because it is plumping. Wearing make-up means that your pores get clogged with silicon and other harmful chemicals.

2. It goes to your bloodstream?
Products such as eye make-up remover and inhaling perfumes are toxic and can apparently get into your blood stream. To me this sounds pretty crazy but I have now read this a few places so somehow I guess that happens? Also apparently coconut oil is a good make-up remover alternative as well as perfume that isn't the spray variety.


3 Save the animals  
Plenty of make-up these days is not tested on animals which is really good. There are still brands that do test it on animals. This is something I am sure many people will agree is a good thing to consider. Although even if not tested on animals make-up can often still include animal products. So actually not wearing make-up can help in saving animals.
