To me, blogging is all about talking about your favourite things and what you are most passionate about. As you have seen so far, I am a lover of skincare and using natural products to enhance your outer beauty. Since moving to the country, I have met a lady that makes her OWN skincare range, which I have previously mentioned but only mentioned it a little bit. I love women who are creative in what they do, and Kirsty does just that! She has been a Beauty Therapist for 20 years, so she knows what she is doing!

Follow her company at:

She does waxing, facials, tinting, massage, manicures and pedicures for those who are in Merredin, Tammin, Cunderdin and the rest of the Central Wheatbelt of Western Australia. Follow her Facebook page if you would like to make an appointment for that Deluxe Facial or massage you have been dying for! I want to try the Hot Stone Massage!!!! She also does Microdermabrasion Facials which has a lot included such as exfoliation, steam, microdermabrasion, head neck and shoulder massage, cooling mask, tone, Vitamin C Serum and moisturise.

I recently tried her Mineral Clay Mask which was just heavenly after it is rinsed! It dries up really well, and you leave on for about 10-20 minutes, and scrub off with warm water and a flannel. It comes in a powder form as per below, so you just put a few drips of water in and voila, let the magic do it itself!!! It has natural herbs in it, and there are different types, for normal skin to combination, and oily skin and it is ONLY $25. This is on my “TO BUY” list.

Here is the “Enter the Sandman bath soak” which is $20, and the “Dead Sea Float” is $35. – They are both for muscle and joint aches and to also help you sleep which has relaxing essential oils. I am in need of this after a work out at the gym, especially after using a Jari Love fitness DVD! It really works your thighs! I feel like I need this now!!! Both these products (when used together) will soothe your body and leave you floating on a cloud!!

Pure Magnesium oil – to replace the salts you have lost from exercise and help prevent cramping.

Pain Relief Butter – for muscle pain and inflammation

Ease a Cramp lotion – to prevent and ease cramps.

Owie stick – to help relieve any blisters, cuts, bruises, insect bites, etc

Sassy Detox Oil – Helps detox away cellulite and tone the skin, which I am in NEED of!

I also love the look of this Luxe Nights package. It is a total “pampering session” in one little box! and is also on my “TO BUY” list. I’ve always known that I want the package with the “milk bottle”! and the powder fluff with the blue ribbon….

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.

20160123-180348.jpg

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!

20160124-220835.jpg

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.

20160124-221326.jpg

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.

20160124-222401.jpg

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!

20160123-181318.jpg

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!

Summer days


This summer has been one of the best Summers I have ever experienced! Every year our family would go to Phillip Island when we lived in Melbourne, but coming to the west side of Australia there has been more to do and see because it is such a bigger state!!!

I went to Lake Bandee which apparently “looks” like Hawaii!! And we swam in the lake which was a new experience for me!!

Yesterday me and my family spent the day in Point Walter which we just sat there and had a marvellous view of the river……

20160102-131356.jpg

I wore some jeggings with a striped orange and white singlet perfect for the day. I took my bathers but didn’t end up swimming, and I watched family play a bit of volleyball.

If you’re looking for that perfect summer dress there is a sundress on the Lover website which is an apricot sort of orange colour and is $695. It is called Lover Cotton and would be lovely to pair it with some gold bangles. It is a feminine piece which surely will have heads turning!!

I haven’t really gone shopping this summer to be honest, if I were in Melbourne I would be found on Chapel street or Bridge Road at this time of year!! Melbourne, as I have said before, is the best for fashion!!! And I miss that place dearly!!

But I have been travelling through Western Australia which has been quite fun!! And have captured some beautiful moments.

20160102-132709.jpg

Summer days is all about comfort and simplicity, and if you’re looking for a laid back, summer read I recommend “Those Faraday Girls” by Monica McInerney. It is on my to read list and will get stuck into it as soon as I finish this blog!!!

20160102-133133.jpg

Don’t forget to grab your copy of this Summers issue of InStyle!!! With the stunning Drew Barrymore on the cover. There is a section where she speaks as a confident woman saying “I am who I am – and I just don’t have a bikini body”. This captivated me as I used to be conscientious of my body in my early twenties but now that I am nearing thirty, I am learning to embrace my womanhood. Being skinny doesn’t make you a better person. It’s learning to embrace how you are, then you’ll realise just how blessed you are with what you’ve got.

I am also interested in Drew Barrymores book, Wildflower. I am totally intrigued and they mention it in the interview.

20160102-133943.jpg

Anyways, I hope you have had a wonderful start to the new year!!!!! 2016 is MY year and I am looking forward to creating new goals and New Years resolutions. I have a few goals in mind, but no deadlines. I am taking life as it comes.

May 2016 be a prosperous and healthy one for you!

Be blessed

Reflecting on life


morning-meditation

Coming back from Melbourne I have recharged myself in Merredin, Western Australia, and I can not believe I am actually liking the peace and quiet of country life!!!! I have grown up as a city girl ALL MY LIFE!!!! Maybe it’s because of ageing, and now that I am 29, life is changing, and I am constantly thinking about what’s most important. To me, family and love is important, and I think that if you are surrounded by good friends, and family, you are successful, no matter what car you drive, what you wear, or what you look like!!! Who you involve yourself with is vital, and how you become is the most important thing in life.

I am grateful that I have my Dad, and Mum, and my sister, Julia. The rest of my sisters live miles apart but I am grateful to be around my family at the moment. My Dad is the Radio Announcer for RadioWest, and the station is with Southern Cross Austereo. When I worked in South Melbourne I used to see the radio station The Fox all the time!!!

I am most thankful for my Dad getting a job in radio. it was his dream as a child, and could never be prouder to see him doing what he loves. It keeps me happy!!! If you want to tune into Radio West, download the App, and you can hear him on the Breakfast Show every morning. His name is Anthony Tilli.

PEACE

Now I can say that if you are looking for work, Australia is filled with soooo many opportunites. I have worked right across Australia, from so many different suburbs in Melbourne, and have had experience in a Workcover agency, accounting firm, electrical company, libraries, Vista Window Coverings, and the support group at the Spotlight Store. I am overwhelmingly grateful for every opportunity I have had to work in our beautiful country, and am even more grateful that I have found purpose in blogging. It has been the start to a wonderful new life for me, and especially for starting a new chapter in life!!

Right now, I am grateful for winding down in Café 56, and just letting out all my thoughts and ideas onto a blog that I am not sure how many people have read but that is NOT my goal. I just want to live life, be happy and enjoy everything life has to offer.

For those that have a busy lifestyle and live in the city, I believe meditation is crucial to keeping you healthy, and looking your absolute BEST!!!! In Melbourne, I read Miranda Kerr’s book, Treasure Yourself, and it has quotes to live by, and words that will keep you sane, and focused for a brighter future!!! Also, switch off your phone at night, put classical music on and lay still,… This will relax you and help you recharge. It’s worked for me!!!

I hope that you learn to live with immense blessing, and move forward with a new outlook on life, as I have found in Merredin.

Moving from the city to the country isn’t as bad as you think! It has its benefits!!
