|Mum at Garie Beach|
I know we are relatively close to the end of January, but after reading everyone's 2015 reflection posts (which I enjoyed immensely) I am now inspired to create a post of my own... not that I have achieved much in 2015.. but here are some moments!
Y A Y moments...
|Great Barrier Reef|
Last September my partner and I travelled to Port Douglas and snorkelled for the first time (I honestly thought I was gonna die, even with a noodle). Port Douglas re-kindled my love for beaches and beachy holidays... and prior to that I worked for 1.5 years straight with 1.5 weeks off. CRAZY.
See Port Douglas Travel post here.
I finally separated my food and beauty into two separate accounts on Instagram. Initially I started The Weekend Foodie was a blog, but I just couldn't find the time to keep up with two blogs and two Instagram accounts. Eventually I decided to give up food blogging. My partner is also on the account to help out!
Took the plunge and made the chop! I have never had my hair cut so short, it was nerve racking and regretful at first.. but it's really grown on me and I LOVE it. I feel like I can wear any wild coloured lipstick, any kinda clothes without creepy old men perving.

N A Y moments...
Still living at home
There are pros and cons to living at home. I love my parent's company, the home cooked meals and I highly appreciate their thoughtfulness and organisation. I do miss having my own space and privacy... being able to walk around in my underpants and do some serious shower karaoke. I will be leaving home at the end of this year and moving into my own little space! I am very excited!
Still unable to cook (food - I can't live off my baked goods!)
I can bake O.K, I bake healthy and tend not to use any sugar or butter (I know, it's difficult!). But I can't live on sweet, baked goods! I still rely on mum's home cooking or have breakfast stacks on toast at night.
Still on my green Ps
I've been meaning to print out all 100 pages of the DQT manual.... I just haven't got around to doing it :( I'm aiming to get my full license in March, it feels so impossible because I haven't "studied" for 2 years and... well.. I'm just lazy!
What's installed for 2 0 1 6 ?
I'm taking two trips this year, one is already booked and the second one is pending. I'll let you guys know the destination in due time! The second trip involves large bodies of water and a LOT of beach.
I've noticed that my metabolism has dropped now that I'm in my mid 20s. I use to be able to eat ANYTHING and wake up with a flat stomach the next morning. These days, I actually have my exercise, I went to the gym for the third time in my life on the weekend and will definitely be doing that a lot more often.
Even though we see each other two days per week and talk every night for the last 4 years, I feel that couple's bonding time is still necessary. I feel like I personally need to make more of an effort to take interest in my partner's interests (whether it's music, movies or TV shows).
Tell me about your 2015 and your plans for 2016!
