I am very excited, you know, website’s take time to update. Not only that, but I have so many ideas and this year, it’s all about change for me. I am growing too.

I am excited because this year, I am writing for me. I used to love being a freelance business writer and author and now still an author that writes more and more each day. I am now an online trainer. I feel with my extensive experience in writing, especially freelance business writing to earn an income! To writing and publishing eBooks, to blog writing, glamourous fashion, interior design, job seeking and more, that my online courses give you what I know in the easiest way possible for you to transform your life and start on a new and exciting path.

In doing so, I have updated my website to transition from freelance writer to online trainer. I love to help others and my time is better used in helping people with step by step instructions on how to reach their desired destination. Let me help you get where you want to go.

View my current list of online courses (which are always growing too, so make sure you check back for more!)

Also be sure to follow me on Facebook for the latest updates on everything I love to write about.

Plus, this year, I have a lot more to share with you. Click this new section that lists all of my blogs on a wide variety of topics, that I love to talk / write about.

 

Funky sunglasses get a look in

I am excited to report to you with possibly the funkiest sunglasses I have ever worn!
If you have ever wanted your fashion to speak for you and show off your personality, then these sunglasses are for you.
I feel quite honoured to have Cheapass Sunglasses contact me to do a post and review on the sunglasses of my choice!
I chose The Zebra. The coolest sunglasses that I knew were me and I just had to have.
I took them for a test drive to a baseball game. I had them on my head, taking piccies and then the sun was quite bright so I put them on. Wow. I was impressed. The light tint shading made the sky look simply beautiful. The lens were clear.
Normally, I find sunglasses hard to fit me, but this pair of sunglasses from www.cheapasssunglasses.com fit perfectly.
I also wore my sunglasses to work and had comments about how cool they were on my arrival. (A lovely start to the day, I must say!)
Here are some specifics:
  • These sunglasses offer 100% UV protection.
  • Plus, they ship Worldwide.

Fashion that makes my heart sing

Fashion is a self-expression of one’s outlook on life and themselves. How you dress is how you want to be perceived by others but more importantly, it is helps create how you want to feel. If you are feeling down but wear bright red shoes. When you look down at your feet you will feel instantly better.

See, fashion doesn’t have to be expensive or over styled, it simply needs to bring you joy. Do I wish I had more money to spend on an entire wardrobe that would make my heart sing, ahh yes! However, now when I go shopping, I only buy what I like (sounds normal for a shopper, but you would be surprised at how people buy a top that would be great for work or fits their body shape well, but it doesn’t really excite them).

I also work out a list of what I need and ignore, without great difficulty, all those (dresses) outfits that I already have enough of and stick to what I need. I.e. tops to match bottoms etc. to create a complete outfit.

During my decluttering stages, I have always kept my clothes, even hand-me downs that don’t even fit me or clothes that are so old that worn, the elastic is over-stretched etc. It is unwearable but the memory of the events are there. The other fear is, if I chuck out all the clothes in my wardrobe that no longer sing to me, then I may not have a complete wardrobe!

This is very true, however, one might be surprised when they remove the item of clothing and place it in a rubbish bag and leave it for 6 months, that they have now lived without it and worked around not having it, that they can finally get rid of it! Or, hold onto it but when receive a new piece of clothing, get rid of it.

However, fashion for me is exciting and always changing. It depends on the mood that I am, if I am feeling creative, I like to wear arty fashion pieces that I am sure to the average woman would find the look rather unique and different. Then there are times, where I want to feel feminine and self-adored, so my glamour pieces are worn. Of course, I have times, wear snuggling into my pink and white fluffy socks are just so cute and girlish that it widens my smile immensely.

Did you notice in the above that I didn’t mention brands whatsoever. Yes, there are brands that I like and shop regularly because I know they are made with quality and are more tailored to my size, however I am not afraid to shop at cheaper outlets as well for something that is utterly cute and irresistible to wear.

That is just a snippet of my take on fashion. To read more about my fashion advice, follow my online courses and in particular my, How to dress glamorous every day online course and How to embrace your inner femininity online course.

Designer Fashion at the lake

The sun is setting and I was get a little bit giddy when this happens, so I thought, ‘why not get glammed up and take some photo’s by the lake, as the sun is setting?’ I am glad I did. I love the end result!

2015-08-06 17.31.22

There were a few moments where joggers and cyclists went passed, looking at me … I shyly smiled and looked away. Then sneaked a look to see if they were out of sight and photo time re-begins!

For me there is always a spark within when I glam up. I love to feel beautiful and feminine and wearing this black blouse by Cue and this layered white skirt, which was made in Italy, added with my Elizabeth Arden dark brown/red lipstick and matching black and white heels, I felt I achieved what I set out too. To feel like a woman within nature’s natural beauty.

How awesome is this lake and sunset?!

Silk & lace: Fashion Fun

2015-07-26 10.25.13

I decided what better fun then to dress up, curl my hair and feel like a woman. But first, a quick tea break and a squiz at Real Living Magazine.

Mmm … and some strawberries.

Fashion in the mountains

2015-07-25 18.54.49

This is me. I am wearing jeans from Top Shop, a white singlet underneath this really light and breezy blouse from ASOS. (A great summer top and for this occassion, winter too!)

It’s winter in Australia right now but you wouldn’t guess it! With beautiful blue skies and the warm sun beating down. For the first time, I went exploring with my family to the Glass House Mountains Lookout in Queensland. What I loved about the visit was the mountains were not too high to drive up. I hate driving up mountains, so driving to get here wasn’t really bad at all. Thank goodness!

I told my husband, I want to go visit the mountains today, so off we went to find a place we had never been before. I was very surprised to find the car park to the lookout was full! Such a popular place this hangout. The lookout is stunning, with 180 degree views of mountains, pine trees and we could even see the sunny coast!

2015-07-25 14.45.48-1

What I love about any adventure, is getting to explore the area and with this lookout, there is a 800 m track you can go walking around the mountain to explore. So off we went!

2015-07-25 14.28.06-1Funny enough, I packed my joggers but left them in the car, thinking that it was just a lookout. Although by the end of the walk, I did wish I had worn them. However, aren’t my shoes too cute though. 🙂

2015-07-25 14.35.11   2015-07-25 14.30.38   2015-07-25 14.30.24

I love being amongst nature. It makes me feel alive. These photo’s don’t do the mountain views justice. There was so much to see. Incredible views, fallen tree trunks, stone pathways, wooden bridges, butterflies and just breathing in the fresh air is worth it.

A selfie in the Mountains. I couldn’t help but share my smile with you from the sky!
