Busy week that was ...

So much has happened over the last week so I thought I'd do a little catch up for you all.

This time last week we were celebrating Christmas with our work party. 
Fun night with fun, slightly crazy people.

It wasn't a costume party but decided to dress up

I found a new place to live - again! A place of my own. 
Can you keep up with how many times I move? I can't. I'll tell you more about that next week.
(yes I'm moving 4 days before Christmas, crazy!)

I had a celebrity moment.
I don't actually get star struck very often but I completely did this week when
 I had an encounter with KATE HUDSON! I kid you not. 

I got to chat to her for all of 5 minutes but whoah, best 5 minutes. 
She was super sweet and looked gorgeous with no make-up on, hair tied up, t-shirt and shorts - beautiful.
I was totally cool, didn't do any gushy celeb thing. Out of all celebs I've met, this is my highlight! 

I also celebrated 10 years with my company. 
It was 10 years ago that I started a journey that I never dreamed would have taken me on 
the adventures it has, enabled me to travel across the globe, 
allowed the most amazing friends a girl could ask for come into my life. 
There have also been many challenges that have really helped me grow as a person. I am blessed.


Naturally following from that, I need a holiday!! 
So I've booked in my long service leave for 3 months and will be heading overseas. 
Some of you may remember I was going overseas last year and it didn't happen? 
Well 2014 Paris, Munich, Rome and New York here I come. Let the planning begin ...

Christmas is here and each year Movieworld holds "White Christmas". 
It was really pretty, lots of lights, fake snow, Christmas music, a parade with Santa. 
Very sweet little thing to do.

And I finished my week off by heading down to one of my favourite spots on the Gold Coast - Burleigh.
We headed down for Breakfast at Canteen Kitchen (the best breakfast) 
and then over to The Village Markets for a bit of shopping.
Such a great way to start the morning. 

My two purchases, dress from Lilac Skin and Kimono from Wanderer

Such a great week. 

Here's to another one, hope you all have a great one

Struggling to believe in one week there were two deaths from two public figures. 

The loss of Nelson Mandela - a symbol of human rights - is truly a great  loss.

One of, in my opinion most beautiful streets (sorry avenues) in Paris is Avenue Montaigne. 
It is just such a pretty avenue, tree lined and so beautifully manicured.
It is home to all top luxury brand boutiques. 
The most recent addition to this line up is one of my favourite brands, Givenchy! 

Located at number 36 Avenue Montaigne the 370 metre-square has been 
designed by architect Joseph Dirand. 
As French Vogue describes it :

"darkly romantic with a hint of elegant aristocracy, embodying the French brand's
signature style to perfection"


The flagship store consists of two floors dedicated solely to womenswear. 
Only the highest quality materials have been used - green veined Breccia Verde Carrara marble, 
polished steel, golden tinted brass, solid oak floors and grey volcanic rock.


I cannot wait to visit here when I am in Paris next year, and I might just buy
 my wishlist Givenchy bag as a momento of my visit.

Last Minute with Montana

You know I love travel and many of you do too right?

A gorgeous friend of mine has made this short video as her entry into
the Spontaneity Ambassador competition.

And I have to say she is the perfect candidate for sure! 
Montana left the comforts of home, friends and family here on the 
Gold Coast and is now living life in London. 
Of course while there she has been exploring more of what the world has to offer! 

She needs as many views as possible so if you can please have a look, 
(even put it on repeat lol) and share that would be great.

Good luck Montana, you're living the life beautiful girl xx
