Cold Mist

I’ve been having a busy time of it recently as I have made plans to travel in September and will base myself again in jolly ol’ London!  It’s winter at the moment here in New Zealand (so I’m already getting accustomed to the colder weather, even though it’s not snowing as I’m in Auckland) and I figured what better way to celebrate it than to do a top 10 list? 😉 (more…)

The Bum Brush

BrushCOLLAGE

I did it!  I finally did it!  I have finally purchased the bum brush referenced in my earlier post:

Y:  I wish I could read Japanese.
Me:  Yeah, me too!

Y:  Huh? What? On your ass!? In front of all these people!!?

Me:  No!  I meant on my arm!

Let the Sunshine In

Gulf Harbour, New Zealand

Gulf Harbour, New Zealand

So far it’s been a case of “all’s well that ends well” as my interview day turned out fantastic, yesterday I prioritised my goals for this year/spring-cleaned my laptop and today I was able to relax and have a nice long walk around the area where I live (pictured above)… (more…)

2013: New Year’s Resolutions

2013Resolutions

The above is a scan of the page I created from printing paper and coloured pencils to remind me of all the New Year’s resolutions I would like to work towards and achieve in 2013.  I have stuck this into one of my old plastic sign holders and have put it next to my mirror on the dressing table to remind me of these goals everyday – fingers crossed it does the trick!  (more…)
