Jenolan State Forest

Hello loves, ❤

I hope you’re all well 🙂 It’s Wednesday here in Sydney, Australia & its a sunny day but VERY cold. Haha, us Australians think 15 degrees is cold, whereby some countries think 15 degrees is HOT. (I am talking celsius)

How was every ones weekend? I went about 3 hours away to Jenolan State Forest, this area is known for caving etc but we went into the forest section & was driving through there. We also went to for a lovely long hike to a suspension bridge & faced a few fears 🙂

I got a lot of steps on my Fitbit that day (Speaking of Fitbit, thank you to those that have added me on Fitbit & have been doing challenges with me, I am having so much fun doing this, it is also very motivating)

We then came back to the campaign ground & had some lunch (We brought some food from home to make our own sandwiches, which was yummy)

On the way out of the forest, we took another exit, as the mountain got higher, the temperature was dropping which meant… IT SNOWED! Now, I have never seen snow fall from the sky, only ever seen it already fallen onto the ground, so it was an AMAZING experience to see it fall from the sky.

^ This is a video of the snow falling from the sky 🙂 I absolutely loved it.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

Hello loves, ❤

How is everyone this fine Friday? (It’s Friday here in Sydney, Australia) I hope everyone has been doing well, are healthy & happy 🙂

What a crazy week its been 🙂 I had B’s birthday last weekend  – We got her a lovely cake & personalised cookies made 🙂 everyone loved them & thought they were DELICIOUS!

The cake was THE PERFECT CHOCOLATE MUD CAKE! I loved it, the company did such an amazing job as well as the other company that did the cookies 🙂

We all had such a lovely dinner (that I couldn’t eat all, they PACKED the plate with lots of food)

On the Sunday, B & I headed to the blue mountains & had a lovely massage & a beautiful High Tea at Lilianfels in the Blue Mountains, about 1.5 hours away from where we live, it was such a beautiful day, we both needed it so I was happy we got to pamper ourselves. She had the best birthday – & I am so grateful for that bc she is more then deserving of the weekend she had ❤

I have been quite busy lately & I am going to put a post up sharing what I have been doing 🙂 I am thinking of not posting every dingle day moving forward, I am thinking every 2-3 days, I will put a blog post up.

I have posted every single day since August last year & I have to say sometimes it becomes real tiring – Sometimes my blog posts are scheduled bc I do a bulk-write & schedule them but I am thinking of backing off a little bit.

Here we are again, putting another 1000 views into the bag. 91,000 views 🙂 I am so grateful for getting here, thank you to all the love& support I’ve received over the last 2 and a bit years, you are all very loved 🙂

Friday night, my weekend started as soon as I finished work on Friday – I love a good Friday afternoon, I get into weekend mode & I am excited for the weekend 🙂

This was the pretty view that I got to witness from my office on Friday night ❤ How beautiful is it?

When it is daylight savings, I get to witness the most amazing sunsets 🙂

I am a lover of sunrises & sunsets ❤

My weekend consisted of a lot of food 🙂 Nom, nom, nom, nom ❤

I had the most yummiest breakfast on Saturday morning, how yummy does it look? Can’t go wrong w/ some smashed avo, poached eggs & feta on sourdough bread 🙂

I also learnt how to knit on Saturday, I remember attempting to knit as a child but I forgot so I got taught again & that was SO fun, I am in the process of making a scarf, I can’t wait to show you once I am finished.

I also caught up on House Rules a show that a group of 5-6 couples compete against each other to renovate & design rooms & get points on their work.

Saturday night consisted of cheese board & baking – As you all know, I love baking, baking is so therapeutic for me ❤ I made Salted Caramel Cookies (Linked my recipe, check it out) I don’t bake them for too long bc I love when they are soft, chewy & gooey 🙂

I love how much I have been baking lately, every weekend I’ve been baking some goodies & I absolutely love it ❤ Does any one feel that baking does some wonders to the brain? I think it could be the sweet cake smell 😛

On Sunday, there was more food (Ofcourse there was) I absolutely loved this breakfast too most certainly a difference to the day before.

The food was delicious & the sun was shining, it was a great start to a Sunday – This picture deserves to be BIG & LANDSCAPE! Look at that breakfast spread – I’ve never experienced a breakfast like that. IT WAS AMAZING! Certainly couldn’t finished all of it but it was SUPER yummy. img_4272

I went & chose my new glasses, so I am very excited for that 🙂 I wear black ones at the moment & I feel they are too harsh on my face 😦 So, I decided I am going to get new ones, these ones are so nice & a little out of my comfort zone BUT I am willing to challenge my self & take new leaps. I’ll show you all my new glasses when they arrive 🙂

I also purchased a new yoga mat, I got a lovely grey one – SCREAMS MY NAME – My life palette is literally black, white or grey! I can’t wait to show you all my new mat 🙂 I love it AND… I get to use it tonight at the gym 🙂

In the night, we had a family dinner & had family over, sat by the fire place, had dessert & ofcourse some tea 🙂

Then I had a shower, did a lovely face mask packed my gym bag & set out my clothes for work the following day then went to bed 🙂

MY NOMINEES:

I cannot wait to read your replys 🙂 Thank you again to Ingrid for this tag 🙂 I had so much fun sharing what my weekend consisted of 🙂
