Dear Diary: My first ever Pandora!

For years I have been so against Pandora, there’s something about the charms that I’m just not interested in. I’m still not a big fan of the charm bracelets but the rings I get a little too crazy about.

I’ve had a very busy July and it always seems to happen, I recently just celebrated one of my best friend’s birthday where we ended up watching a double feature movie, had a massive brunch and ended the night with some sangria! Of course, with any birthday comes presents, so what better present than matching Pandora.

Normally when I walk into any kind of jewellery store I get so overwhelmed I end up walking out because I don’t want to deal with the unknown. However I was determined to buy some rings for my best friend and I and just kind of walked around until somebody approached me.  All the girls at work talk about being able to stack their Pandora rings and I wanted to be able to do that with mine as well.

I actually really enjoyed my experience at the Pandora store and just being able to mix and match what rings worked well with what was a lot of fun. For myself I ended up choosing a bow ring because we all know my obsession with bows is on another level, but also because my cousin has the same one who now lives in London and I really wanted the same ring as her so we could be twinning from however many miles away we are. The second ring is a flower ring which I also got for my best friend so we could be twinning as well.

I’m also not the biggest silver fan, whenever I choose jewellery I normally go for gold just because my skin is so sensitive, so here’s hoping nothing happens. It’s probably also my first piece of silver jewellery in a long time.

Hope everybody is having a really good day, can you guys believe it’s already JULY! Time is flying by so fast, I’ll have another blog up on here soon and until next time..

Byeeeee!! xx.

With love from the Blue Mountains

throwing you all lots of love

Not quite too sure what it is, maybe it’s the fresh mountain air or the long drive to the Blue Mountains or just a whole lot of colour your eyes take in, it’s always so refreshing spending a day somewhere you’ll never get sick of.

I hope everybody has enjoyed their long weekend so far and as for myself I spent it up in the mountains where I was supposed to go for a hike but then turned into location spotting for the best lookout points and a competition to see how many photos we could take on the edge of cliffs, which I lost because my legs were shaking looking at how high we were.

I love how the air is so fresh and crisp and that the views are always so breathtaking. Despite trekking up a tonne of stairs, it’s always worth it when you make it to your destination. That and your body will thank you later for how toned it will be.

Hope you enjoy some of these photos, something I definitely needed to do before I mentally prepare myself for how busy this week is. Why are there so many birthdays in May?

Have a great week everybody and until next time..

Byeee!!

Dear Diary: Enter chocolates

Everywhere I go it’s Lindt chocolate bunnies and easter eggs and ferrero rochers and chocolates and bunny ears and bunny toys with a hamper of chocolates.. it’s exhausting trying to refrain from eating them all.

I walked into the supermarket the other day and totally just got bombarded with chocolates in my face and there goes that little voice in my head telling me that Caroline, you really shouldn’t be eating all these chocolates but then again it’s just so hard once you’ve had one.

This time of year is probably the most fun, we have the royal easter show happening, which unfortunately I will not be attending this year! Even though I’ve been 2 years in a row and I always enjoy putting up my experiences from the show and also blog about the show bags I get, I figured that this year there was just way too many people attending and I don’t do the best with crowds, but also have you seen how expensive the tickets are getting. I’m pretty sure by 2020 it’ll be $50 entry. I also love this time because it’s a great little Easter break you get to spend with family or even just relax from work, the only thing I don’t like is all the chocolates in my face which then will give me pimples on my face.

In saying that, I hope you all enjoy your Easter break whatever you may be doing. Eat chocolates, but remember in moderation, let’s hope I can remember that and until next time..

Byeeeee! xx.

Dear Diary: Road trip to the Hunter Valley

Fine wine, chocolates and a group of friends.. sounds like a lot of fun, if only you weren’t allergic to alcohol!

A couple of friends and I decided to head up to Hunter Valley over the weekend and of course I’m still feeling a little delirious from all that sun I soaked up.  We booked in for a wine and chocolate session and although so informative and a lot of fun, I had no clue what our tour guide was talking about. By the second sip of wine, I was already sweating and according to my friend, my scalp went all red. Some wines just don’t do well with my body. Regardless I had a tonne of fun and loved exploring the gardens.

I’ve also recently jumped on the food reviewing wagon because everybody is a little inner foodie at heart, so I jumped on the Zomato app and ended up at this cute cafe called Enzo for lunch. If you follow me on Instagram, the way they serve the iced coffee and juices are pretty nostalgic.

Super filling

I definitely recommend heading up there if you haven;t already. We ended up coming home with 6 bottles of wine and 2 blocks of chocolate, I mean how often are we going to be there.

Anyways I hope you all had an amazing weekend. Here’s hoping the working week will be good to all of us and until next time..

Byeee!! xx.
