Those Summer Days

65465

Now that it is finally starting to heat up I thought I would put a list together of a few of those simple things to do through the summer time that some people may have forgotten about. But most of all, won’t break the bank.

– Find a hidden beach or visit one you have never been to before. Never know, it might become your regular one.

– Go exploring! Is there a town nearby you have never ventured into? Well do it, trust me it’s worth it.

– While you’re there, find a cute café to sit down in, having a nice drink or ice cream and watch the world go by for a while.

– Learn to Surf. Why the Heck not! It’s definitely on my list of things to do this summer.

– While you’re at it, try Stand up paddles boarding as well.

– Get creative! Have homemade cocktails with your girlfriends.

– Festivals. I know there not everyone’s cup of tea but there are plenty of variety for that more chilled out vibe.

– Gather some friends and go for a road trip. Whether you wing it or have a destination in mind, they are ALWAYS fun. Even if it’s just for the day.

– Have fish a Chips on the beach, while watching the sunset. My partner and I do this often. LOVE the beach *cough* and fish and chips.

– Get the gang together and finish your day off with a bunch of friends for a BBQ dinner date.

Well I hope you guys have a few more ideas for your summer days and remember to use sunscreen and keep those fluids up.

xx

Repost – Unwritten Clothing Blog – Things you wish your Mumma taught you

I want to start off by saying I take no credit for this post what so ever! I loved this post so much from Unwritten Clothing Blog (An Australian online boutique) that I wanted to repost and share. Enjoy!

Bought a new pair of shoes & don’t have time to wear them in? Grab a pair of thick socks & your hair dryer and you will be ready to go in 10 minutes! Put your thick socks on, your new shoes over the socks and blowdry tight areas. Keep your socks on while your shoes cool and you are ready to go!
If they are still a little tight after you take the socks out repeat again to give them a little more stretch.

Love cute rings but hate the green mark they can leave on your fingers? Paint the inside of your rings with a layer of clear nail polish!

Hang your handbags on shower curtain rings to de-clutter and keep them off the floor and spaced out!

Wear your hair in a loose ponytail rather than a tightly pulled back ponytail to prevent straining your hair and bald patches. You should also try not to wear your ponytail in the same spot every day.

Red red wiiiiine…we love a nice glass of red with some cheese and biscuits, but have you noticed it always seem to be when you’re drinking the RED wine that it spills and never the white (and always seems to be on your favourite white dress)!? Keep some white close by! Pour white wine over the red spill and let it air dry. The white wine neutralises the red stain and is easier to wash out!

Use a magnet board to keep all of your makeup neat & tidy

Makeup wipes aren’t just for your face! Get rid of that annoying foundation mark on the white top you just put on, or that deodorant mark on your black tee!

Thinking of cleaning our your wardrobe? At the start of the Season, hang all of your hangers facing one way. Each time you wear an item, turn its hanger around to be facing the other way. By the end of the season, you will see all of the items your haven’t worn and can sell them at the local markets to make some money to buy some new items from Unwritten! (hehe)

Put frozen grapes in your wine to keep it cool & prevent it being watered down

Put a magnetic strip in your bathroom drawer or cabinet to keep all of your bobby pins & tweezers together!

(Helloooo dream shoe-drobe!!) Want to keep your boots tidy? Hang them with ‘skirt hangers’ if you have the hanging space, or keep them upright on the floor with old magazines rolled up inside!

Keep warm this Winter! Make your own heat packs by filling small pillow cases or socks with rice and tying the end with ribbon. Add some tea leaves for a yummy scent! (LRB – More on this later 😉

So many shoe styles this Season are best worn without socks (yes, Converse and cut out boots we are looking at you!) no socks may look better, but it can also equal some bad smelling pairs of shoes! Put baking soda in your shoes to rid the smell and also kill bacteria

Run your mascara wand under hot water to prevent clumps. You can also add a few drops of saline (the liquid contact lenses are kept in) into the mascara tube if it is getting a little dry to prolong it’s life for a few more weeks

Got bubblegum stuck in your hair? Rub it with ice to get it out! (we have also heard peanut butter works…but we think ice sounds a little cleaner!)

Soak your nails in hot water and baking soda to brighten up your tips. For stubborn stains you can also try putting some whitening toothpaste on your toothbrush and scrubbing with your toothbrush

Days of Happiness..

Hi There!

Just wanting to touch base about my 100 Days of Happiness and I’m just going to jump straight in.

I started off strong, thinking ‘This is so easy, heaps of things make me happy’. Then, I got to about day 13 when I realised, ‘What am I trying to prove?’. Everyday, many different things make me happy, some of which you cant capture by photo. I didn’t need to prove to myself  that the little things count, I already knew that.

That is what I will take away from the challenge of 100 Days of Happy. Appreciate everything you have big, small and even the things you cant hold in your hand. Its not up to anybody else to tell you what you should appreciate or what should make you happy.

 

Everybody is different, Appreciate life.

100 Days of Happy

CHALLENGED ACCEPTED!

Image

I have decided to do the challenge 100 days of happiness, through http://www.100happydays.com

Anyone can join, you hook it up with any of your social media. Then share daily, what makes you happy!

Essentially, the idea is to take notice of the smaller things in life and appreciate what you have.

Life seems to pass by so quickly and most of us are just taking every day for granted when we should be taking everyday as a blessing. We hear this nearly everyday but yet we don’t do anything to change this.

On the ‘100 days of Happy’ website they state that 71% of people start this challenge but wont complete the whole 100 days due to ‘lack of time’. Like they say, “Do you not have time to be happy?’

If this is the case, something must be changed. Something in your life isn’t working for you. People constantly tell me about the things In life I ‘HAVE’ to be doing, when really, there is nothing anyone HAS to do. You make your life yours and you do what is right for your life. If that means quitting your office job to join the circus, then you damn well should join the circus!

I am taking this challenge because I would love to document the things that make me happy on a daily basic and be able to reflect back.  By the end of my 100 days, I will hopefully be able to take notice of the small things in life and appreciate life that little bit more.

Come join me on my journey!

Welcome..

Hi Everybody!

Welcome to my first blog post. This is something I have been wanting to do for some time now and I have finally, after a lot of conversation with myself, convinced myself to finally do it. Just do it, just jump in I told myself. And here we are!

I realised that the only thing I ever did on the internet was read other peoples blogs, or watch other peoples vlogs. so why not! Time to start my own!

First, I should probably tell you a little something about myself. That’s probably a good place to start. My Name is Emily, I’m 22 years old and live in Australia. I Love anything colourful, sparkley and pretty. I love the feeling of sun on my face and water on my feet. Disney movies and my Dog Tilly! I dislike, rudeness, negativity and dust!

I hope your all still with me at this point and I look forward to sharing a little bit of me with you!
