Stylish Blogger Award


Me, a stylish blogger, YAY!!!
I have always wanted to be stylish in some way!

I have to say a huge THANK YOU to
for passing on The Stylish Blogger Award

Michelle is a wife, mum & interior decorator. She is a wonderful caring lady who does a lot of great things in her community.
Michelle is also very creative often showcasing some wonderful crafty projects.
Drop by & say Hi to her!!

Now I am supposed to tell you a few things about myself
then pass this award onto a few other bloggers.

About Moi!!!

When I was an apprentice hairdresser, my dream was to own my own salon, it took me 20yrs,
 but I did it!!!

When I worked as a fitness instructor, I dreamt of owning a personal training studio,
I did that!!

"Aspire to climb as high as one dreams"

Now I am a stay at home mum & I appear to have lost my MO JO,
I  have NO dreams in the career department...
I hope it returns soon!!!

Having children has taught me to be a little less obsessive about my home,
I love to see things perfectly polished & in place, but some days its like fighting a loosing battle...
Oh well, tomorrow is another day!!!

Since I have began blogging I have really started to admire peoples photography skills & have a real desire to become more skillful in this area.
I have asked my dream guy if he will buy me a digital SLR camera for Xmas & a basic photography course to go with it. I would like to learn how to use all of the features on my new camera right from the start.

Blogs I would like to pass the Award to...

Tina at Rubies Place

Tina is a real inspiration to me, she is a mum to 3 gorgeous girls, a wife, she is doing a university degree to be a primary school teacher, she has an Etsy store full of her beautiful creations & she still finds time to decorate her own home, oh & email me some little tid bits of inspiring ideas she just knows will melt my heart
. A modern day wonder woman I say!!!

Drop by Tina's blog & her etsy store for some good old fashioned rural Australian inspiration!!!

Jane is another one of those inspirational bloggers ya just gotta meet. Jane's blog is about the journey she , her hubby & two girls have embarked on to knock down their two bedroom cottage in Sydney, recycle & reuse many of the materials to rebuild a fantastic environmentally responsible dream home. I'm loving her story so far.
This week Jane also surprised her followers by announcing she had just published her first novel, now to me that is impressive!!!

My Novel

Doesn't the cover look fabulous!!!
Drop by & catch up with Jane, you will love her!!!

Kerri is another amazing talent I have come to admire in the land of blog.
Kerri is an artist & designer, a wife & a mum & her achievements are very inspiring. She recently started selling her incredible art work thru her new Etsy store & I don't think she has slowed down since, producing one master piece after another.
When I eventually get a house, one of my first shopping ventures will be to Kerri's to get some fabulous art.
You will also want to check out the super stylish renovating & decorating she does in her own home, its really lovely!!

Now I found this part a little traumatic & could probably just publish my whole blog roll for this award as


Have a lovely weekend every one!
