It's that time of the month again....well not THAT time.....SUYS challenge time!

For March #2 challenge we have a lovely and very versatile sketch, you need a number in the title and of course a hand made item. My gorgeous felt & button flowers and printed buttons come from Purple Pumpkin.....just too sweet for words! Also added a red doily by Eb's Mum, and the cute star buttons and F-U-N title buttons are from Nellie G.

Speaking of sweet.....I am so looking forward to Easter!
 Not because of the choccy (I'm off it this year!).....but because of the traditions and the fun and the fact that Mum will be here to help us celebrate.
What are your plans for Easter this year?

If you're anything like me you'll be welcoming the cooler weather. As you might know, Autumn is my FAVE the sunny days, the afternoon breezes and the cooler nights. I'm reunited with my scarves and cardy's which have been hibernating at the top of my cupboard......and drool over the new season fashions....


All of the above available here.

I love to wear perfume, but often get it wrong when purchasing......the scent smells divine in the store but not so great on me. Well, I am officially in love with the latest from wacky fashionista Vivienne Westwood....
.....the cheeky name and the gorgeous bottle got me in, and it smells absolutely delish on!!!

Tim and I had a rare date night last Saturday. Went to the movies and saw....

.....not your average rom-com I must say! Not usually an Ashton fan, but he was adorable in this......and the female cast - terrific. A little bit naughty and heaps of LOL moments - the perfect date flick!

SO excited to see this....

......back on the small screen. Tuesday nights 10.30 on GEM. Seriously goosebump-worthy!

Not losing weight all that quickly at the moment.....finding myself too busy to fit in exercise this week. This little cartoon helps to remind me to hop up from the computer now and then while at work!

Nice talking to ya, thanks for the visit, cya!

Weigh-in + Inspirational Reading

My efforts have started to pay off at last...

After losing ZILCH last weigh-in (despite all that exercise), this week I lost 1.2, which adds up to 2.2 since I started the 5 Kilo Challenge a bit over 3 weeks ago. Gotta be satisfied with that!

Part of our task for this week's blog post is to think of a way to make our fave indulgence less "naughty"....but I have to say, that doesn't make much sense to me. I mean, if I'm going to splurge, I would prefer the teeniest piece of the best chocolate or the smallest spoonful of the most luxurious ice cream. Why waste calories on anything less?

The best motivation for me has been finishing this book....

....which has started me on a quest to "live my best life" (as Oprah would say) which led to me picking up this book....

.....which has convinced me that I am worthy of my own kindness and has taught me to listen to and worship my body rather than hate its flaws and punish it with food....this book has opened up my eyes and my mind, seriously powerful stuff.

I even supervised this sweet scene in my kitchen the other day without craving so much as a bite.....(and that's saying something - cos don't they look scrummy!)

It tool the girls absolutely HOURS to decorate their gingy-men.....such focus and creativity.  Fun FUN fun!

Hope your weekend is FAB - isn't the cooler weather a lovely relief?
