Yesterday I met up with the lovely Nikki from Styling You and the vibrant Kirralee from Escape with Kids for a Brunch with Mum's Society at The Grounds of Alexandria. It was so lovely meeting these two ladies for the first time. It was like we had known each other for years. Nikki is just lovely and super glamorous in all that she does. We connected straight away as we have been connecting online for a few years. We are similar in the fact that we have children at the same age at similar stages in their lives. Nikki's eldest two are at University and my eldest has just completed her Diploma in Early Childhood Education and can I just say she is a natural and starts her first job on Monday as a qualified educator. I ma just so excited for her and super proud.

Christmas is less than 4 weeks away, I know I hear you! I have started my shopping and only a few more gifts to go. My huge family have chosen to only by for the kids this year with a Kris Kringle limit of $50.00 for my siblings, it save buying for everyone and we are all opening a gift on the day. Special times !! I am hoping if all goes to plan that we will be 'glamping' it up by a little inlet and a swimming pool over the holiday break.
What to wear Christmas Day can be a hard tackle and always depends on where you will be and how the weather will settle on the day. I love to buy a new dress for Christmas Day - there is nothing like buying a special outfit to wear as we celebrate with family and friends.

Maxi (long) dresses are perfect for all occasions and are super easy to wear. I believe they also add a touch of glam to your day. There is something about a maxi that makes you feel G L A M O R O U S. I look to purchase a new Maxi dress every year, Maxi dresses just seem to make you feel super comfortable as they hang perfectly over your silhouette.

My good friend and I buy a special gift for each other every Christmas. Over the last 2 years I have given a book that I have enjoyed previously. We are very similar and like a lot of the same things. We are both born in May and our birthdays are two days apart. So today I am featuring a little gift guide for a girlfriend.
This selection are from my personal favourites. I am sure there is something to delight you all from a scented candle (illustrated by Kerrie Hess) to fine jewellery from UberKate.
Monday morning I woke up at 5am feeling quite overwhelmed with certain situations in my life. I woke up thinking of certain issues that were upsetting me and whereI am heading and where I want to be. Little things escalated as I hit rock bottom and I was struggling to keep my emotions in check. There were tears and gut wrenching sadness. This happens from time to time as I have let my thoughts go and then all of a sudden WHAM! they hit me like a tonne of bricks. By the end of the day I am feeling better and this is how I pull myself through.
