Life Lately 9/9

9 September 2015

Time to catch up on what I've been up to these last 3 weeks or so. Where we'd last left off, I had just scored a new job at a clothing boutique right near my house. Which I have had about 3 shifts at so far. My 4th shift was suppose to be on Monday, except I've been really sick. But I'll get to that. 

As you can see I've changed around the colour scheme and header on my blog and I love it! It's so much more "me". I guess. The hanging plant & cactus are courtesy of The Noun Project. Which is a great website that is full of free icons, of which you only to need to leave credit for somewhere on your page. So mine is on my Disclaimer page. I totally planned to have this awesome designer from my town create a header for me, until I realised how often I change things around. So once I'm ready to settle I will come back to her! Having plants in my theme is perfect though. 

Me and my love
It's finally Spring time here in Australia, and we have had a few lovely days so far, but this past week it's been mostly breezy and a bit rainy. I missed one of the warmest days as I was laying in bed trying to ward off stomach cramps with medication and a heat bag. But I did get to enjoy the last hour of sunshine with Josh laying on the sand. As we now live a sweet 10 minute walk from the beach. Something I've yet to really take advantage of. 

I'm loving working at my new job. The girls I work with are all incredibly lovely, and so pretty! Not important but they are, just saying. I'm still learning everything because it's all so different than any retail job I've done before, even just the computer system as it's a self owned business. Not part of a huge corporation. So even just receiving stock means you have to create the items in the system. Phew. I will get there. Lucky I'm good with computers. ;)

I did my first actual outfit post the other day! I hope you guys liked it! Joshua took the photos for it and I realised I really need a tripod and remote for future photos. But for now he can just follow me around. I also started a LookBook account

So you should totally head over there and fan me + hype my one photo. These were taken in my courtyard but hopefully I will venture further for my next lot of photos.

On Monday, Aug 31st I woke up with a sore throat and I have just gotten sicker from then. Coughing, struggling to talk, blocked nose, sore throat. And then my eyes got infected, which was just awful. That happened Friday afternoon which meant I couldn't go to a Wine Tour I was so excited about, I had to stay home and wait for the doctor to visit. 

While Josh and everyone was out having a good time. Now I miss one of my first big shifts at the new job which was suppose to be Monday. But my eyes have pretty much completely cleared up and I'm coughing a lot less. Gah I hate being sick!! 
I recently bought myself some marble contact paper, and I have been putting 10x more effort into my blog photos, I hope you've noticed! I'm fully trying to not use stock photos anymore. That's the dream anyway. I love the look of the marble as a background. I still need to work on using more props, and find some better lighting. 

I've been trying to improve my Instagram skills too so you should follow me there, and over on Twitter! I've been twittering away about whatever nonsense. As well as having a good old whinge about my cold. Give me a follow and I can follow you back!

Okay I'm finished with all the updates. Cya! xx

  17. I love your header, there's something about hanging plants (or plants in general) that make a space so much cosier and welcome!
    Hope you're feeling better, I woke up feeling razors in my throat today too :( It's the change of the seasons!
    Quite jealous that you live so close to the beach, I hope you share plenty of beach pics so I can live vicariously through them!
    (in a completely non-creepy way of course)
