Friday Favourites

I can’t believe another week has gone by already. It doesn’t seem like it has been long enough for it to be yet another Friday, and it doesn’t really feel like I’ve achieved much over the last week either!

Pole class. Second to last class for the term and even though I was feeling like crap I still got my butt into gear and went there anyway, go me!

Nutrimetics Beauty Club. I had training on Monday night and we did a couple of things, first looked at how to build the business through party bookings. Then second I got to play with the new Professional Colour Illusion Eyeshadows which was great, they are so nice and soft and creamy to use.

Aquapole. Yes another class again this week, I’m really enjoying seeing my girls each week and hoping to book something else in after this so we can keep catching up!

Bellabox. My June bellabox arrived this week as well which is exciting. There was so much in it the box was literally bursting. Can’t wait to get into it and try everything out.

I hope you have had a great week this week. I’d love if you could share the highlights from your week in the comments.

Take care,

Christmas Wrap-Up!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas day with lots of yummy food and lovely presents!

Mine and my partners Christmas family gatherings started on Christmas Eve with my Mum’s side of the family. We don’t give presents to each other anymore because it ended up that we were just going “what would you like?” and buying that, so we just figured we’d buy it ourselves. I did get something for my Mum though, she bought a Suzuki Swift about a year ago and wanted dash mats and seat covers, so I bought her a Super Cheap Auto voucher. But because I don’t really like getting people vouchers, I also went on to the Photobox website and made her a personalised 2016 diary with pictures of me and my partner and our dog in it. My Mum got some of the pictures from our Bali trip and made a collage of them in a really big frame which is nice. It’s quite huge and heavy so we need to work out where we can hang it where it won’t fall off the wall!

For Christmas Day lunch we went to my step brothers house…or maybe it was more like an early dinner. They tried lunch a few years ago and haven’t learnt anything about timing because lunch was at about 3pm! Anyway, my siblings and I do a Kris Kringle present giving which makes things easier when there are six of us! I had my sister in law this year and I bought her a Pandora stacker ring, my partner had my eldest step-brother and got him a small kitchen veggie/herb garden, and I got a perfume and lotions set and he got a Super Cheap Auto voucher. For my Dad we got him tickets to the Australia Day cricket and gave my step-Mum the bellabox Christmas box. From them I got a fancy drink dispenser and some money and my partner got an air sander.

We finished up the day at my partner’s parents place and we got his Mum a personalised 2016 wall calendar, we had an extra one made for his Gran as well. For his Dad was some fishing thing for his boat which I really didn’t understand what it was! And for one sister we got the bellabox Christmas box and the other one we bought a T2 teapot with matching cup and three little tins of loose leaf tea. Gosh we always get spoiled when we’re over there, we got a rotary clothesline, because the one we have now is hung under the carport and I can’t reach it! Along with some pegs and clothes bags and a voucher for Bunnings. My partner also got a life jacket for when we go kayaking and I got an Anaconda voucher to buy some accessories for my kayaks. I also got a couple of makeup and jewellery cases as well and my partner got another toolset and some little sorting tubs for the shed.

Did you all have a nice Christmas? What presents did you get?

Take care,

Friday Favourites, 4 December

What a week it has been. Wrapping up my birthday and then trying to work out what to get family for Christmas, to actually doing some shopping and trying to get everything online…and oops buying things for myself instead!

Mecca. So this bit of online shopping was for me, and I had a voucher for my birthday. It was so hard to choose what to get though, but I was very surprise that after making my order on Sunday night, it was delivered on Tuesday!

bellabox Christmas box. I got the first of two on Wednesday, these are actually for Christmas presents, one for my step-mum and one for my partner’s sister. Great little present for the ladies who like a bit of pampering.

Morning tea. As usual the girls went for morning tea on Wednesday which is always a nice little catch up and break from work.

Kayaks. For my birthday my brother was getting me a kayak and I got a whole lot of cash as well which I put towards buying a second one so either my partner or a friend could come along, and I bought those on Thursday and will be picking them up on Saturday, woohoo!

Work Christmas lunch. Today we had our work Christmas lunch which was nice. We had a round of bowling and then headed to the pub for a nice sit down three course meal in one of the pubs private rooms.

How has your week been? Have you been able to do all of your Christmas shopping yet?

Take care,
