2014 Round up! Thanks for a great year!

It has been an absolute mix of a year.

On a personal level:

The start of an amazing new job that I absolutely love doing. Thank God, it took a lot of sleepless nights to make the decision to move from a job in a company I had been working for for 10 years. I have no regrets whatsoever.

I did 4 Fox in Flats Style Challenges and developed one of my own with my obsession du jour or rather année: Lipsticks.

I embraced Pantone colour of the year Radiant Orchid (just wait till you see 2015 colour!!),  went mad over Mad Men.

I went on my first trip to the country – Lake Cargelligo to be precise, made several trips to my caravan on the beautiful south-east, a girly trip up the coast to Terrigal and an impromptu trip to the Netherlands to visit my sister who unfortunately was diagnosed with breast cancer.

I bought a new car (oh how i love theee)

I changed my longtime favourite perfume  and had a few giveaways!

I added quite a bit of leopard print to my collection but decided monochrome is my thing. with a bit of leopard. I also bought 3,348, 783 more lipsticks. Or there about


I also got a little more serious about my blog and moved to a self hosted domain and still keep fiddling with how it looks. I did one blogging course and then decided I needed to do another, more niche one in October. I ran out of time and still haven’t finished!

I wanted to mention my readers, the wonderful women that have been commenting and “liking” their little hearts out. Thank you.

I have just received reports for my old blog and new. And a special mention go to my top commenters and supporters. Check their sites, they are all amazing.

Then there are also my besties, my insta buddies and my Facebook friends. Thanks all so much.

I am so pleased that the top ranking post this year has been my Ten Things that Make me Happy and this review where I road tested Scholl Velvet Smooth.

Thanks for reading them.


Enough about me. I am here to wish you all the BEST year ever. I wish you peace, love, health and all the happiness in the world.

I will see you fresh, and ready with loads of new years resolutions.

thanks again.


See you in 2015!
