My Fabric Stash #getoutofmystash

I’d already got a fabric stash blog on my list to write, but then I watched Hila’s #getoutofmystash vlog and was inspired to do something similar.  My fabric stash is not a big one at all; one big box and four smaller ones.  Even though it isn’t big, I’m still conscious that I’ve already spent money on it and it’s just been in a cupboard for a while.

My main aim this year is to use up the fabric I have in my stash, including those fabrics that may be tricky to use.  I also want to donate any fabrics that I won’t be using to our Art centre, or maybe even a local school if they need them.

California Dreaming – January 2017

Last weekend Adam and I went over to California for a long weekend away.  After our busy December, we were so ready to just get away and ‘almost’ relax.  Our main reason for heading to Anaheim was to go and watch the third round of the 2017 Supercross season; something we try to go and to each year.  My brother was also on holiday and was going to the Supercross so we also met up with him a couple of times while we were there.

Birch box January 2016

At the end of November 2016 I subscribed myself to a couple of beauty boxes.  I have a huge love for trying new make up products and had found that each time I went into my local beauty store, I spent a small fortune to satisfy my need of trying new products.  I then noticed a Buzzfeed article for the top beauty subscription boxes of 2016.   After reading, I signed up for 3 different monthly subscription boxes and one quarterly box.  I hope to put a quick review of each one on here to share some new products with you.

One of my monthly subscription boxes is Birchbox.  This subscription is $10 each month and it  contains 5 sample sized products tailored to your skin, hair & style.  Each month I receive an email asking me which box I would like & if you get in early enough you can actually choose some of your samples.  I was a little late to see the email this month though so I got the curated box, which is a predetermined set of samples.  I didn’t mind this though because I love to try anything new!

Our New Home!

After our Green Cards were approved back in June (yey us!), we knew that we wanted to start looking at houses.  As much as we had liked our apartment, we were getting to the stage where we felt very restricted and watched.  The dogs had no immediate place to run around together and I did feel a little awkward heading out with them first thing in my pyjamas, because let’s face it…not everyone gets dressed as soon as they wake up! 🙂 In addition to this, renting was just killing us.  It’s so expensive to rent and there’s nothing that we get to keep as the end result.

Happy New Year! Yes I’m really blogging again!

Happy New Year friends!

I hope you all had a great holiday season and are excited about the year ahead!

I’VE NOT BLOGGED SINCE AUGUST!!!

I’ve been present on other social media a little but I’ve just not had the chance to sit down and think about a blog post.  A LOT has happened since I last blogged and I feel like life has been a huge whirlwind.  I’m ready to take a few deep breaths now and get back to blogging again.

Sunday Sevens #92 :-)

Hello there! Trying to get back into the swing of things (I know I’ve said that before!)…hopefully I can really get back into things this time around. I’m trying to be organised and get posts scheduled midweek when I’ve got free time & Adam’s not home as we always seem to be super busy at the weekends! I’ve only chosen 7 photos from the last few weeks as hopefully some of my other posts will include what I’ve been up to also; mainly house things!

1. Our move is slowly coming around so we have started to get things packed so it’s done ahead of time and we don’t have to rush with everything. Our spare bedrooms look crazy at the moment!

2. We went and did some proper ‘grown up’ furniture shopping, not in Ikea! We bought a new bed and spent almost an hour choosing a mattress. I almost had a heart attack at how expensive the mattresses were but we are seeing it as an investment. We now find it very amusing about how excited we are about getting the new mattress!
