Byron Winter Break – photo diary

Holidays rock! Even when the weather is cold and drizzly and we have made no plans, and instead lay around the house, eat warm soup and devour a book in front of the heater, the idea of a whole week off Uni with nothing planned brings a smile to my face. We decided to book a mid week getaway to Byron Bay, and though it is only an hour from home it felt like a lifetime away, with a whole day spent strolling, eating and taking photos and staying in the cutest little guesthouse I have ever seen.

Toy Camera

It is getting to the business end of the academic year so my to-do list keeps on growing so this little blog space has been a bit neglected.  Hopefully I get my creative cooking mo-jo back sometime soon and will have some recipes to share with you.

About 2 years ago I decided it would be fun to buy a toy film camera. I couldn’t decide which one I wanted so I ended up just buying a super cheap one on ebay and some film and had fun with the mystery of what my photos would turn out like.

Byron Day Trip – Photo Diary

The blue skies and sunny days of winter have been phenomenal.  With beautiful weather on our mind, a couple weeks ago we woke up feeling like an adventure, so we jumped in the car and headed down to Byron for a day full of market shopping, sunshine and good food.

Garnier Take Care Ambassadors

As I mentioned in my last post, this past week has been a whirlwind. This time last week we were on a plane, flying down to Melbourne for 2 nights, for the start of the Garnier Ambassador program.

Since our return, life has been pretty hectic with a couple of massive unexpected curve balls, but we are thinking positively and trusting that everything will work out, as it always tends to do!

Pumpkin and Goat Cheese Ravioli with Sage Butter Sauce

Waking up to the sound of raindrops on the roof and a cool breeze through our bedroom window, I knew that this break from the scorching summer days would call for two things…  TV and comfort food.  Now, days later, when the rain has not given up, we are hoping that it will stop before we have a repeat of last year.

Starting out Sewing

I have always wanted to learn how to sew.  On trips to the op shop I tend to return with items that are perfect, except that they are just a little too big, or could use the hem shortened – and as much as I have good intentions of hand-sewing alterations, they sit in my cupboard unworn until the next closet clean out when they are donated back to charity.
