Creative Wifey: The Butterfly Effect

This was the cheapest home decorating ever! Instead of spending heaps on art work or frames for pictures I decided to grab some coloured cardboard in the colours of my room as my walls are pretty bland and we are renting so it had to be something that was easy to get off the wall as well.

What you will need:

Blue tack


1. Cut out Template and trace on the cardboard of your choice I had Black as my base colour and then added pops of yellow, charcoal & silver to tie in with the rest of my room.

2. Cut around the tracing and fold butterflies in half. Decided how you would like your butterflies placed I got my inspiration off Serena's bedroom in Gossip Girl with the circle and butterflies flying out.

3. Stick on your wall and scatter your coloured ones around so they are not all together and your done!!

below is some templates I used that you can print out and use :)

Standing Strong

Sometimes people come into our lives and when we are surrounded by them we instantly become a better version of ourselves we think through problems in rational ways, we make plans to get fit & healthy, we dream big dreams, we help make those dreams feel more alive and closer than ever. Most of all we learn to love ourselves an inch more from words of encouragement from those most loved friendships that pick us up when we're down, fight the badies hand in hand, and conquer the world like giants. These friendships are so very close to my heart and without them I would not smile as big as I do, My heart would not be full of giving to those in need & my mind would be full of self doubt because honestly who doesn't believe a best friend's words... "you can do anything" in which they believe without doubt. Here I am picking myself up and standing strong not only for my family but for my dear true friends.

I love this (my sister sent it to me)

Haris the Yaris

This week's end is coming at the slowest pace ever I feel like I have a constant headache which is return is making me so nauseous! what started off my hectic week was a car accident arghh that pissed off feeling that lingers... not really towards the woman that backed into my poor "Haris the Yaris" but rather that now I have to wait two weeks for my broom broom to go get fixed :( atleast I don't have to pay a cent! I hate that crushing feeling when something bad happens all you wanna do is crawl back into bed and pretend you haven't even woken up yet! now my never ending weekend just got a whole lot worse I worked 9am till 7:30pm today so thats not long to some but when it comes to doing beauty it fucking sucks!! tomorrow is just as hectic 7 massages in a row 2 are 90mins I want to cry & it hasn't even begin yet! 8:30am start can I really be bothered going to the farmers markets at 6am??? and one last day on Sunday seriously where is Monday!! I am pooped after my sucky week. Hubby has been the best this week I am so lucky he has been so good and keeping our house organised and cooking, cleaning & washing I owe him big time! & not to mention my beautiful neighbours bought me over Maltese's yep Dave & I have nearly devoured them already haha.

whats is your weekend looking like? hope it's better than mine!

I miss my Nan's cooking! tomorrow will be extra special reliving this afternoon delight!

I didn't want to leave...

Last Sunday I jumped on a plane to see my Parents, Sister, Nephew & Niece I hadn't seen them since my wedding in May I was more than excited! how good does it feel spending quality time with your family with no work at all it was awesome! we did so much but most of all we all spent the day together for Dad's birthday I shouted him a round at the Golf Driving Range my nephew was the cutest he comes up with the darnest things! afterwards he said "Mummy your on 8, Nanny your on 10 and I'm on 38 and Killin' it" haha. Next we went to Cost Co I was in my element I would have bought sooooo many things if my suitcase had unlimited space!! seriously I can't wait for Cost Co to open on the Gold Coast I would love it you definitely need friends to share all the bargains though! The funniest thing that happened that day was my poor niece went to the top of the playground and was too frightened to come down who came to the rescue... Nanny I was in tears from laughing so hard watching Mum roll through all the obstacles haha and bless some of the Mums there giving her encouragement yep they had been there themselves scaling the playground. has that ever happened to you? I was a little shit as a child I bet that will happen all the time to me when I have kids hopefully Mum can fly up and rescue them cause i'm scared of heights haha! the weather was really nice in Canberra although I am definitely not use to the dry heat compared to the humidity. I didn't want to leave on friday night back to reality I had to come I did miss Dave but sometimes Mum & Dads cooking cant be beaten! I cannot wait to see them all again in February for my Brother and his gf baby to be born exciting times ahead!! two sister inlaws pregnant and ready to pop start of next year!! Dave & I love being Uncles & Auntie its so much fun!

When was your last holiday with your family? I wish they could happen all the time... :(
