My Little Piece of Heaven

Everyone need a place in which they can get away from the stress of every day life.
For me it's my room, my little piece of heaven on earth.
There are a few parts to my room.
And today Im going to give you a bit of a tour of my creative area.

I love this space,
I am slowly getting it organised to the way I like it.
I also store my sewing machine under my desk.

I have in the past normally never really been creative,
But thanks to Pinterest and some amazing blogger
They have given me the inspiration that I need to start to enjoy it.

I'll share some more of my room soon :)

What Would You Do For Love??

Last day of holidays was pretty great!
Even though the list of things that I wanted to get done didn't really get done, I still have this weekend to achieve those thing! 
And I am determined to get them done!

Tonight me and a friend discovered a AMAZING restaurant.
So good that we booked the same table to go back to in a fortnights time.

You know the feeling that you get when you try a new restaurant.
You have the hope of something amazing,
You have your hopes set high.
Well this location did not let us down!
The service.... fantastic!
The food... Mouth watering heavenly goodness!
Add great conversation and it was a awesome dinner.
Seriously good food! 
My mouth is watering just looking at the picture and knowing that I will be back there in a fortnight!

Following the amazing dinner we headed off to see the movie 'The Vow'
This movie is amazing.
If i wasn't in fit of laughter at one of my friend who was crying, pretty much from the start of the movie, then I would have been crying too!
(When I said crying, I mean endless tears running down her face, seriously it was HILARIOUS!)
This movie was filled with laughter and tears, you couldn't help but feel it tug on your heart strings.
How determined her must be and how much strength and love he must have for her.
I can only hope that I have that much love for my future husband and him for me.

What would you do for love?

My favourite parts of the movie was when he was singing Meatloaf to her in the car, the box that he give her when he is sick, and how much fun they have in the relationship.

I'll admit it...

If you have not seem this movie,
Trust me it will be worth it.

***Also take tissues... if you don't need them, your friend will!
**P.S... Channing is HOT!!**

What's In Your Bag??


This is my brand new weekly feature on the blog.
For some time now I have had a fascination with what people carry around in their bags.
It all started when I came across so many people posting it on Flickr!
I personally think that you can learn a lot about a person by what they have in their bag.
Now when I say bag I mean anything from handbag, back pack, diaper bag, wallet, briefcase  even by what people have in their glove box!

So each week I will be sharing with you a new guest blogger,
And they will share with you what is in there bag!

Everyone is welcome to take part.
If you have been hosted on my other feature '10 Simple Things'
Guess what...
You are welcome to guest post again!

To start the new feature off let me share with you all what was in my bag today...
I have loved this bag since I purchased it!
It is big enough to carry what I need,
It even fits my laptop.
But unfortunately it's life is coming to an end.
My bag is normally more organised then this,
But this is nothing to what my bag has been like over the last week.
I normally like my bag and it's contents to be orgainsed.

So... What is all this stuff??
First part of my bag contains the normal things...
*Glasses cases: one with a set of spare glasses, and one with my sunglasses.
*Receipts and business card.
*Gum... three lots, same flavour but different types. I like my gum.
*iPhone 4s
*Bracelet and watch
*Work Keys
*Personal Keys
Part two...
*Tampons... always good to be prepared.
*Perfume... My scent that I love is Vanilla, I normally only carry the stick and purse spray and leave the bigger one at home.
*Stick deodorant
*Nurofen (pain relief tablets)
*Medication for reflux (evil reflux!)
*Lip balm
*Glasses cleaning cloth
*Bobby pins
*Hair bands
 Part three... Last part!
*Books... The lucky One by Nicholas Sparks: Currently going through a Nicholas Sparks phase, love his books! The other two books are new ones that just came in the mail! E.E. Cummings poetry, and Love letters of great men and women.
*Pencil case.. normally only carry a couple of pens only.
*Package... another item that came in the mail today, I had ordered some cute little envelopes off Esty!
*Diary, Kiki-K love their diaries!
*Postcards, two free postcards that I picked up from Melbourne Airport while I was there on Valentine's Day.
*Letter... letter from a friends. That reminds me... I need to finish my reply.

Oldies but Goodies...

When ever I am working on my blog I am always listening to music clips on YouTube.
I normally end up listening to what ever is on the charts at the particular time.
But today I found myself listening to some oldies,
My YouTube selections took me back to the 90's & early 00's

Sit back, relax,
And let's take a walk down music memory lane...

Towards the end of the 90's there were three type of music groups that my friends were listening to...
-Spice Girls
-Boy Bands (N'snyc, Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees etc)

Me, well as you can tell I was a boy band girl.
Looking through all these longs and more,
There are so many song that I have forgotten all about.

What are your favourite 90's or 00's song??

Cute little bag for the bird seeds to throw

I have a really bad habit of going to bed late,
So unfortunately i suffer the next day by not being able to concentrate and being tired.
But lately I have been getting nasty headaches, and for the last three mornings I have been waking up with headaches.
And the sleep that I have been getting hasnt been very good quality.

So starting tonight...

Life Planner....

One of my goals this year is to become more organised.
In all areas of my life.
And to do that one of the things that I wanted to do is to use a journal.
This year I invested in a Kikki-K diary.

But I have a little problem...
As much as I love my Kikki-K diary,
My heart has been stolen by another...
I have fallen in love with

They are amazing!
They go over a two year period.
And are super organised.
This is the one that I would pick...
Check out this link to see more of what it looks like inside!

I missed you.
