Happy Holidays!

Hello sweet friends. Long time no see! It feels very strange to be sitting here writing this blog post after such a long blogging break but after a busy year I finally feel like I am ready to slowly get back to my bloggy home. I have missed you so much and have appreciated the messages, emails and comments.

Say G'Day Saturday Linky Party {74} ~ Link up Your Latest & Greatest!

G'day sweet friends and welcome to this week's Say G'day Saturday Linky party!



Well, the school holidays are finally coming to an end and we will be back at school Monday morning. I don't know how I'm going to cope with my alarm going off at 5:30 after three weeks of sleeping in!



Speaking about Paris, I'm also getting ready for a French dinner tonight to celebrate Bastille Day. We will be eating delicious French cheeses and Steak Frites and we will be drinking French wines.

I've also had fun looking at many of the links from last week's Say G'Day Linky Party. Here a few that you might not have seen.

Tuesday Tune & Words of Wisdom ~ Gardening Ideas: Which Path Would you Take?

Welcome sweet friend! Thank you so much for stopping by to say g'day today. I'm so glad you are here!

Today I am sharing my favourite song of the week as I usually do each Tuesday for my Tuesday Tune post but I'm also adding my favourite quote of the week. I know that many of us use quotes as inspiration so I thought I might share some words of wisdom that I love on Tuesdays as well.

Today I am thinking about choices: past, present and future.

“There comes a time in the spiritual journey when you start making choices from a very different place. And if a choice lines up so that it supports truth, health, happiness, wisdom and love, it’s the right choice. ”
Angeles Arrien Anthropologist

“I discovered I always have choices and sometimes it's only a choice of attitude.”

Say G'Day Saturday Linky Party {73} ~ Link up Your Latest & Greatest!

G'day sweet friends and welcome to very late Say G'day Saturday Linky party!


It is the last week of the school holidays and I have been having such a great time relaxing, spending time with my family, going to the beach and basically doing very little! Here are a few of the pictures that I shared on Instagram of my week at my most favourite beach in the world, Mooloolaba!

When we arrived at the beach I had a terrible cold and the weather was dreary but I didn't care because I was at the beach!

Say G'Day Saturday Linky Party {72} ~ Link up Your Latest & Greatest!

G'day sweet friends and welcome to another Say G'day Saturday Linky party!

Say G'day Linky Party

Well, I am now officially on school holidays but am in the middle of fighting a terrible cold! I can't believe I am spending the first week of my vacation sniffling, sneezing and coughing. At least I have had time to relax and unwind and not worry about getting myself ready for work and the kids ready for school.

I must apologize again for forgetting last week's linky party. We had a busy weekend and I was enjoying spending quality time with my family so much that I forgot to get the party post up.  Thank you SO much to everyone who joined in with the previous link up and for sharing so many wonderful ideas, projects, recipes, tips and tutorials. In case you missed a few of the fabulous links here are 10 ideas that caught my eye.

I am posting this from my iPhone using the Blogger app as I have just realised that I forgot to set up the post for the Say G'day Linky Party!

We also bought Madeleine a new computer so we've been transferring files all weekend and I haven't had much access to my laptop.

Here are a few of thing fun things I've been up to this weekend.

I've been playing on Instagram ~ My 1st #Instavideo

Hello from Oz sweet friends!

Just a quick post today to share my first video on Instagram. It will probably be the most boring thing you will watch all day but hey, at least I tried!

Big Al helped me with this amazing boring clip about getting ready for breakfast.

Without any further ado, here is Breakfast on Instavideo!



See, I told you it was incredibly amazing  mind-numbingly boring! Aren't you glad you popped by to Say G'day today!

Perhaps you might be more interested in my last post on ways to accessorize for all seasons with scarves? Just click the picture to check it out.

Accessorizing with Scarves, Words of Wisdom from Michael Kors & a Video!

Welcome sweet friend and thank you for stopping by to Say G'day!

Today's Tuesday Tune post is a little different to the usual post because I am not actually featuring a particular song, but some music that accompanies a brilliant video called  25 Ways to Wear a Scarf in 4.5 Minutes!

I have scarves on my mind at the moment because here in Brisbane, it is winter and in winter it doesn't really get very cold so we don't tend to wear big heavy coats and lots of heavy layers. Instead, we tend to wear essentials like long pants or jeans and accessorize with boots, jackets, ponchos and lots of scarves!


Me in my grey Winter scarf on a sunny Winter's morning!


Accessorizing with Scarves



My favourite accessory every winter is a scarf  or a poncho because they always fit, they can be as expensive or inexpensive as your budget allows and they come in so many different patterns, shapes and colours.

Scarves aren't only worn in Winter, though, no sirree, they can be worn in Summer too!
