Another year over a new one to begin!

Another year is coming to an end and what a year it has been full of ups and downs. The downs have been bitter sweet always making me truly appreciate and be grateful for who and what I have in my life. The highlight of my year was walking down the aisle to marry my best friend Dave he has been a solid rock in my life a delight to be around and what an amazing Husband he grew into I am definitely blessed to have Dave in my life everyday I sure do love you bucket loads and more! My family has been another huge support this year we grew even closer and stronger together always there for the good and the bad situations that arise in all of our lives I love them all so much and have all the time in the world for them.
Christmas is so close and I am excited to spend the whole day with my inlaws they are such a fun, loving bunch and I adore hanging out with them its going to be a great christmas! 
Next year is going to be bigger and better full of love and laughter I am looking forward to our one year wedding anniversary! My niece Mackenzie to be born! my sister inlaws long awaited baby to be born! my brother inlaws wedding in Bali, my dream career change with studying starting in march wahoo!! spending time with my friends, seeing my family in Feb and in Dec for christmas at my place! Most of all the little things I love to do in life...

One thing I want to learn next year is: How to use my sewing machine properly! 
One thing I want to accomplish next year: Throw my own dinner party for my friends. 
One thing I want to do consistently next year: Blogging! I love to write and actually want to dedicate a bit more time to my blog for my family, friends and all of you!

A table in the corner of another cafe

I have always been into Coffee for as long as I can remember unfortunately Dave was not... this had to change! I first got him hooked when we made him try Mum's nespresso machine... two weeks later we owned one too. I had worked on Dave for 2 years trying to get him to like coffee what is it with men they never listen to woman and then bam someone else tells them how amazing something is and they are all over that shit! well this is the case with Dave I always suggest something and weeks or years later he comes up with my idea and pretends its his, atleast he likes it in the end I guess haha. As the coffee connoisseur I am and the change I have always embraced I decided I wanted to explore and try more cafes on the Gold Coast so I have nailed it down to the Top 10 coffee places I must visit which are: (I found these top ten on Crave Gold Coast)

- Black Coffee Lyrics: shop 40/41 3131 Surfers Paradise Blvd, Surfers Paradise
- Dune Cafe: Palm Beach Parklands, Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach
- Commune: 1844 Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads
- Canteen Coffee: 23 Park Avenue, Burleigh Heads
- Borough Barista: 14 The Esplanade, Burleigh Heads
- Vintage Espresso: 1/43 Alfred St, Mermaid Beach
- Nook Espresso: 43 Goodwin Terrace, Burleigh Heads
- Barefoot Barista: Shop 5, 10 Palm Beach Ave, Palm Beach
- No Name Lane: Elizabeth Ave, Broadbeach
- Gov's Espresso: 2459 Gold Coast Highway, Mermaid Beach

We started off today with Barefoot Barista I loved the decor inside filled with unique wooden tables, chairs and simple flower arrangements dotted around. The vibe was very relaxed and the food was amazing I knew it would be the moment I noticed their selection of sweets we had chocolate macaroons which did not disappoint quite frankly when does any macaroon ever disappoint! coffee was good and its pretty rare down this end of the coast to find such an awesome little coffee shop!

*Please feel free to email me any cafes on the Gold Coast we must try I am always up for trying new things when coffee is involved!

Project Two: {SNEEK PREVIEW}

It's been a little while since my last project which you can view the SNEEK PEEK HERE and the END RESULT HERE. It was so fun doing research, mood boards, shopping and putting all my hard work together at the end! Husband & I are looking at doing lots more projects but one of the biggest things I love is Guest Bathrooms & Guest Rooms!! they are just so gorgeous and thoughtful, we have family coming to stay in february so we thought it's a perfect opportunity to finally make my spare bathroom and one of the spare bedrooms into the perfect guest retreats! We are renting so we can't paint, wallpaper or put up shelves etc.. and we want to buy things that we can later use when we buy a house of our own. The style I am going for is high end class with Black, Silver & White as my colour palate and lots of useful and thoughtful essentials.
