Frocktober Day 15 – polished from Tip to Toe!!

Dear Diary,

I know I polished myself up before I left, but I didn’t have time to get my awful nails sorted – I am a shameful beauty therapist ( that is my trade) but you know what they say about mechanic’s cars….

On our walk the other night we passed this funky little shop and hubby took the number and shouted me a mani-pedi – the first in a VERY LONG TIME

Tip to Toe – House of Polish

You can find them on facebook and in the mainstreet of Dunsborough Western Australia

Image

 

Thanks Krysten and Zoe, it was pure pleasure, and my nails look fab

Image

 

Well, a lot of time was taken to get my nails perfect so we had a late start, we decided to just head over to Busselton for some ‘thrifty’ shopping – our fave kind ( I scored some beauties to work on to make some special upcycled pieces, no doubt you will see them soon)- at some op shops and just have a wander over the jetty…..

So, another CARRIE skirt featured today, and of course it is always a time for pearls!! And perfectly polished nails which match my frock.

I did some donating of my own today for Breast cancer, you can help out with Ovarian cancer by donating HERE

Love Kirsty xx

PS. I hope you have penciled in the 1st of November!  I have jagged some more of my “favourite things” to come along and help me celebrate, we are in for a fun day.

 

Frocktober Day 12 and 13 – Road trippin’ and unwinding

Day 12

Dear Diary,

We headed off after Mum arrived to look after the kids and we had had lots of cuddles – I think we were more upset than the kids, they get to have Nanna and Grandad for the week – we have had a long hard road together as a family and have rarely had time apart over the last few years so it felt strange to be heading away from the kids, but Mum and Dad have always stressed that it is important to have some time to recharge to make sure we are both heading in the right direction, and they are so right!  When the kids leave home, it will be us alone again and we want to still have something in common and keep the love alive!

We swung by Rockingham city to catch up with Adelle from www.wherethestyledthingsare.com where she has taken on the job of their official blogger and was running a styling competition, so I had to enter – I could do with a $500 voucher to spend!!

This is the outfit I styled……..fingers crossed…….

Image

 

I know this isn’t a conventional ‘travelling outfit’, but since when have I been a ‘conventional’ girl?

Image

Bring back the everyday head wear, I say!!

oh, and do you like the car hubby swapped his grunting ford explorer for, for me?

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

I had obviously been in the car too long……

This Frock got a few side glances as it is SO PINK!! And maybe I was a tad over dressed for a road trip…….

 

 

Day 13 – NO BRA DAY!!

Dear Diary,

It took me a while to unwind today, we just hung out together and it is SOOO QUIET!!!! I didn’t know what to do with myself as I didn’t HAVE to do anything.

We took a stroll this afternoon and it wasn’t until I saw these photos that I realised how much this outfit fits with my surroundings.  And might I add that I was not as supported as I usually am as I was also participating in NO BRA DAY  (did you free the girls?)
