I feel like at the rate I am going I shouldn't even have this blog as life has sped up and I haven't had a chance to catch up on my favourite things. Relaxed weekends, early nights with a great book and catching up with friends have recently been replaced with late nights at work, lots of travel, a big  birthday and a wedding to plan!

So, in the meantime whilst I catch my tail, here are a few of the things I am loving.

Slim Aarons - inspirational photography. Take me there...
                                              How fun if we all wore sequins to breakfast!
Old Vogue magazines. Yes I am a hoarder. Especially when it comes to Vogue.

Wedding Planning

In the midst of manic work, it has been hard to lock in wedding plans but we finally have.  We have decided to get married next year in Thailand.

This weekend I have been feverishly researching and am starting to get very excited about our exotic adventure.

My love of palm trees, pineapples and sunsets are all coming alive and now the next step is to go over and do some real life research.

What a hard trip that is going to be!

I can't believe it. It has been 5 months since I last wrote on Viskavilla. I don't know what happened but time has just flown by and such a rapid pace that I need to get my feet back on the ground.

During that time a lot has happened. I started a new and wonderful job which has been so busy I have struggled to see the difference between home life, work life and what exactly is/was normal life.
It isn't a bad thing as I have been working so much time has literally flown by and before I knew it, the seasons had changed. I am loving it and back doing all the things I enjoy just at an accelerated pace.


We moved house. The boy quit his job to go out on his own and we got engaged! So I have a feeling this blog might very quickly turn into a wedding update post!

So good to be back writing and sharing all the things I love.

Only one sleep to go and although today it is still spring (and currently 30 degrees at 8am!!) I can't WAIT!

It is summer time! My favourite. Look out long lunches, swims in the ocean and fresh pineapple.

Bikinis... Eeeek!

I can't quite believe that it is nearly bikini time. Times has really flown over the last few months and it will be summer in 23 days. 23 days! Ahhhhhhhhh

I am digging deep for any inspiration I can find as I feel like before I know it, I will be enjoying summer holidays not quite feeling bikini body ready.

So, I am going to create a new playlist, get my running gear ready and get back into it. Here is to hoping this post is what I need to maybe end up with a body like this... or just a healthier version of what I actually have! haha

Spring Clean

Last week I had the week off work and as much as I was dreading it, it was definitely time for our humble abode to have a serious clean out.

So, I did it. I filled garbage bags with clothes I never wear (this is huge for me as I am emotionally attached) and got out the cleaning gloves.

I organised the wardrobe, filed all my papers (what a terrible job!) and now for the first time in a year I feel cleansed - and the apartment looks amazing.

It is incredible what a clear out can do for your peace of mind. I can't even remember which clothes I gave to charity (clearly the emotional attachment needed to go) and feel all the better for it.

It is funny the way life works. I have just read back on the blog posts I wrote over the last few months and realised that I wasn't loving life like I normally did.

I was working in a job that didn't suit me and didn't bring out my best. The biggest problem was, at what point do you give up and at what point do you keep on trying?

I went to Hawaii and New York for a fabulous getaway and whilst sitting in NYC I realised I was dreading going back to work. That was when it hit me that life is too short to be doing something that doesn't make you happy.

So, I have left that job and am just about to start another - a role that suits me MUCH better. I guess you never know about a job until you try it. Experience really is important - it makes you who you are.
