Cosmopolitan and City


Ok. I must admit it. I felt like I was losing a bit of spark in my life,….. Or my personality…. Whichever….. I felt like the joy that I mentioned in my previous blog was actually going away. Which I DO NOT want!!!!! 
I had so much joy and excitement in Melbourne when socialising with people, that when I moved to a smaller and isolated place I felt I was becoming dull. 

Driving to Perth I was thinking about this…… Well, dwelling on it and the feeling of adventure propped up within me!!!!!! The excitement is coming back again!!! Slowly, slowly…..


A friend in Melbourne once told me that I was never too short of words…. I felt like I was losing that too and I KEEP thinking about the time she said that to me. I ask myself, am I still like that!?

Is it leaving me? I want to still be a breath of fresh air wherever I go! Whether I am storytelling or giving my life story, I want to be consistent and on a balanced level and I don’t want it to go away.

Well, I get excited when going to Perth……. Because it’s a major city. The buzz of the city life. It’s what GIVES me that buzz, and I love and enjoy talking with city people. 

Don’t get me wrong, I am starting to enjoy the country too. I like the balance of city and country. If I could choose just one, …….. It would be the city!!!!! Just the sound of trams dinging by, the rush of shopping, and going places, it’s such a thrill!!!!!! And that’s what bursts me with excitement!!!!!!! 

I miss the old GPO in Melbourne, which is now H&M and the Bourke street mall….. David Jones and Myer….. Walking down the mall or Melbourne Central in Italian Leather Boots and an Armani jacket and a pink Oroton bag….. Yep, I will always be a city girl at heart. It’s just IN me. 

I feel like I could write a novel on a city chick in Melbourne….. Something similar to Carrie Bradshaw….. Without the sex talk. I wonder what it would be like if I wrote about a Footscray girl….. Well, that would be me. I am sure I can come up with a story or two! I know all about Footscray life!!! Well, not so much anymore….. But I have a feel for the place and I feel I could come up with something definitely. Oooo a project to add to my life!!!!! 

If you ever end up being in Footscray, try Vittoria Cafe….. In the mall…. I had this dish called Salted Fish and Fried Rice, or something like that…. And I had it for lunch almost every day when I was working at Thomson Real Estate in 2013. Coffee there is good too! 

Also, try Cafe Cui…… Opposite the Footscray station….. Great new little possy!!! And they say they “bring New York to Melbourne”! 

I am sssooooo excited!!!!! Reiss will be opening up soon…. The British label and I can not tell you HOW excited I am….. Except that I’m not in Melbourne, but when I go in September this year, if it is open, it will be my FIRST stop!!!!! 

AND I will be looking for more RepliKates!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️

So! What gives you a buzz!!??? What sort of things can you do to add excitement in your life!!????

Pilgrimage to Perth


20160123-181357.jpg

When my Dad mentioned that we were spending the long weekend in Perth I was over loaded with excitement. We were in Mandurah not too long ago and now we are going on another holiday! Travel is one of the main things I wanted to do this year, even though I was brought up in Perth, there is still a lot I haven’t seen & we go down there every few months seeing it is the closest major city to us.

Sometimes I feel I have been in the country for too long, but what to do!

We arrived at the motel, Starwest Apartments Alderney on Hay around 1pm, Saturday, and it was fairly adequate with 2 bedrooms and open space with a nice sized kitchen and a lounge room with television. Quite a comfortable place, cute and modern.

I didn’t watch television at all!! I just enjoyed the stay and most of all the views from the balcony! We stayed right in the heart of Perth CBD with excellent services and facilities. Summer fun! There was a pool but never got round to the time for it!

On Saturday, Garden City in Booragoon was our first stop, like always! And Zara and Bardot were the main places we shopped. I didn’t buy anything but today I got a lovely bracelet from a little boutique shop called “Stella Rose” which is situated in Mount Hawthorn. The lady that served us, Jenny was really lovely, and complimented my sister a lot when trying on clothes. The bracelet is so feminine and is very special to me seeing that Mum bought it for me. Something special to have and to hold.

We also went into a little bookshop and I loved the travel section. From New York, to London, it had EVERYTHING! And every single bit of information on every city in the world! I wanted to buy “Melbourne”, but from living there I feel I know enough about the place!

I bought a new book, “The lost Tudor Princess”. I can’t wait to get stuck into it when I finish A Refuge at Highland Hall. It’s not in my current to read list for 2016, but it just looked too intriguing to not to buy!!! It looks like my cup of tea! If you love books, refer to my previous post for a selection of novels and such.

I didn’t go into the actual mall this time but we drove through the city for fun!!! Checking out different suburbs of the town……. It made me miss city life! Just a bit!

Travel is still on my list, but while I’m based in Merredin I want to continue on with studies, as it is quite important to me at this stage in life! I have so many things I want to achieve in life, and finding and creating my life whilst in Merredin is an adventure! Setting goals for travel or anything else in life sets the tone for your life!!! For example, If writing a book is a dream, set small achievable goals weekly and set time aside to write. You will feel like you’re getting somewhere!!!

I hope the same for you wherever you are! Adventures here we come!
