Friday Favourites

Another week has gone by and I don’t know about you but mine has been pretty jam packed.

Pole class turn private lesson. On Saturdays my pole classes are at 8am, which understandably it’s hard for some people to find the motivation. We’re a few weeks in to term now and it was only me at the last class so it turned into a bit of a private lesson as well which was great.

Lunch with my grandparents. On Sunday I caught up with my grandparents for lunch for the first time in a while which was nice.

Home away from home. With everything that’s going on in my personal life it was nice to take a bit of time away from home and stay at my Dad’s for the week while he was away. My dog and I even enjoyed a nice walk in the reserve that backs on to the house.

Business cards arrived. I ordered some business cards for Nutrimetics and they arrived in the post this week, woohoo!

Nutrimetics Centre Stage. Nutrimetics held a centre stage event called the Professional Make-up Masterclass where we got to hear about the newest eye shadow Nutrimetics have brought out in their professional make-up range.

Monarto Zoo Volunteer Day. I had a lovely day up at the zoo on Wednesday, it was only 2 degrees when I got up there but the sun was shining brightly and it turned out to be a lovely day.

Aquapole. Another week and another workout with a couple of my girlfriends, I am enjoying being able to see them every week!

See what I mean about a jam packed week! I hope you all had a great week and please feel free to share your highlights in the comments.

Take care,


Motivational Monday, 18 January – Children


I don’t have kids, but many of my friends do.¬†The thing that I’ve noticed the most strongly, of all these children I know, is that it’s not the kids who have the most toys that seem to be the happiest.

The ones with heaps of toys I’ve found I don’t want to be around because they are spoilt brats who chuck tanties when they don’t get their way.

The other kids I know who spend their time playing with siblings, exploring the backyard with them or splashing around in the pool with their parents, they’re the ones who seem the happiest. Not when playing with toys, but when they’re with people and having fun with people, that’s when I see them smile and giggle the most.

I wonder what all these children will remember as the highlights of their childhood, when did they have the most fun? Would it be when they were playing with one of the huge number of toys they had? Or maybe when they’re playing in the pool or at the beach making sandcastles with their parents and friends?

None of the highlights from my childhood have anything to do with toys, they’re all to do with spending time with those people close to me. I suppose that’s something for me to keep in mind for when I do decide to have children. Maybe it’s not about the toys, it’s about the people that make it special.
