Sun Salutation

Now that winter has finally set in on the Gold Coast and the days have become gloomy and miserable, looking back on these photos (that are only a couple of weeks old) make me dream of sunshine falling on my face and finding a spot to shelter in the shade.  I am feeling a little overwhelmed by study so can only reminisce about lazy days spent exploring the area surrounding our new home.

Spots and Stripes

I hope that you all had a lovely Easter break and managed to mark a few things off your to do list…as well as having a couple of days to relax and have a good time.
Although the entire weekend was plagued with rain, Kris and I still spent a day down at Currumbin wandering around and exploring while trying to stay as dry as possible.

three and a half

Last week we celebrated  ‘three and a half’ years together, but rather than spending the morning sleeping in and eating breakfast in bed, Kris had to rush off for a placement at a relationship counseling organisation (coincidence much? haha).

The Village Markets

Last Sunday we were all fed up with study, so spent the rainy day exploring one of our new locals, The Village Markets.

The Village Markets are my ideal little market, full of reasonably priced vintage and easily browsed in under an hour, the perfect way to spend the first Sunday of every month.

Despite a torrential downpour descending on the Gold Coast for the entire morning the rain stopped for the entire time we were there, allowing me to snap up a couple of bargains, satisfying my shopping urge while sticking to the student budget.  I bought a couple of exciting little things that I can’t wait to post about.

Double surprise

I always love a good excuse to pop on some sky high wedges, a little black dress and a smack of red lippy, and since it has been far too long since I have done an outfit post, thought it would be a nice chance to take some pictures too.

Last night I had the pleasure of attending my Aunty’s surprise 50th birthday party, and catching up with some extended family that is up from Melbourne.  If any of you follow me on twitter, you would know that there was more than one surprise last night… After my Aunt had finally recovered from the shock of walking into a noisy restaurant packed full of friends, family, balloons and party poppers, her partner of 15 years dropped to one knee and proposed!
