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
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.
In less than two weeks I am away. Away to the beach and the big city. The biggest problem is that there is so much to do before I get there.
I feel like for the last few months everything I have blogged about has been work and how stressed I am. Stress is such a terrible thing.
I have always been one of those people that could shut down my work life and live my normal life but recently it has all merged into one. Sleepless nights and working on the weekends is not making me all that wonderful.
So I think I just have to pack and get on the plane. Work will always be there and I think a holiday is exactly what I need.
I am the fourth week in to my new job and wow, am I busy. So busy I can't quite believe it. We are halfway through winter and I have hardly noticed.
Change is such an interesting thing. I had forgotten how hard it is to leave somewhere you know and are so fond of to start a new adventure where you don't know everything. The systems, the people and the work. All new and somewhat overwhelming.
I have also committed to commuting to my new job which has made me have lots of thinking time as well as lots of time to chat to friends overseas and locally. The lucky things - very good friends indeed.
Today is the first day of winter and my gorgeous boys birthday. What a time to celebrate!
It is amazing how quickly the seasons change and before you know it you are wearing tights and jackets everyday without realising. It is that time of year when things get cozy and you want to cancel all plans and snuggle up.
Saying that though our winters are still very balmy. Today the weather will be 17 degrees! Boiling.
Tonight we are off to celebrate the gorgeous boys last birthday in his 20's at great friends engagement party. What a way to celebrate the first day of winter with lots of drink with wonderful friends.
I always forget that parts of my job are brilliant. I guess the longer you do a job, the more you get used to what you do and the fun parts get washed in with the day to day.
Tomorrow I am travelling to Sydney to shoot and PR a new campaign for one of the beauty brands I look after.
From hair and make-up to stylists to caterers, there is never a dull day on a set. From models arriving to being under the hair dryer and make up lights for hours, the shoot is always exciting but always long too.
It is so interesting to see the new up and coming models and how gorgeous they really are close up.
Ahh the joys. Now just to find the energy to get through the next few days. Coffee please!
I LOVE having people over for dinner parties. Catching up with great friends is what life is all about! Tonight, I have eight wonderful friends coming over for a mid week dinner party. Joy!
I do however forget everytime that I have never really found time (or I guess the passion) for cooking. I could host dinner parties until the cows come home but it is the preparing of the meals that fills me with dread. It is the time that you get stuck in the kitchen and not chatting to your nearest and dearest that is terrible.
So in a dream world where I had a HUGE budget I would get a cook in to prepare and serve and I would sit back with a fabulous glass of vino in hand and just enjoy.
I would set the table with the most incredible fresh flowers and plates and cutlery and just relax.
Good friends and wine, isn't that what life is all about?
