9/2016 - Art and Noms

Well this week has certainly gotten away from me! With hectic workloads keeping me at the office late and a new exercise routine getting me up super early I'm a wee bit exhausted! But apparently not too exhausted to make the stinking hot trek all the way through Northbridge up to Chu bakery for some delicious food and a brief sit in the shade in Hyde Park the other day! I don't walk in that direction very often but every time I do I notice different bits of street art. This huge piece is a collaboration between Perth artists Martin E Willis, Jessee Lee Johns, Daek William, Kyle Hughes-Odgers and Pures HD. With so many different styles smooshed together there's so much to see!

Yum! Totally worth the sweat.... The Perth Fringe Festival has just started so I'll be busy with some more fun things this week (and hopefully taking a few more photos!!).

8/2016 - Locks and Lighthouses

Ok - these are my last shots at the lighthouse (at least for this trip!). I really enjoyed all the rust and texture I found here, and I'm always fond of a twisting staircase. Not sure why this little lock was hanging there but I'm sure it means something to someone!

7/2016 - E Hearts M 4 Eva

I love a good beach sunset as much as the next person, but when we went out to the lighthouse at Sorrento Quay I found that I couldn't help but focus on the lighthouse itself. I enjoyed all the interesting lines (of course with the the gorgeous sky as a backdrop).
 Ok maybe one standard pretty beach sunset...

6/2016 - Before the Sun Sets

Yep. It's summer. The beach shots will continue to roll on in. These shots were taken after a particularly warm and sticky day and while the sunset behind the lighthouse was quite beautiful (more on that tomorrow) I think the photo below was my favourite of the day. There's just something about those sunny pastels that appeals...

5/2016 - Tis The Season

So one week after Christmas I started seeing Cadbury Creme eggs popping up everywhere. And I resisted. For a while. But one can only resist so long...

4/2015 - Real Life

Well. That's it, my Christmas holidays are over! Back to the daily grind tomorrow. So before I get back to what I anticipate will be a pretty hectic week here are some nice calm blue oceans...

3/2016 - Health

I don't know about you guys, but December was a total naughty food gorge-fest for me. So much so that I hit the point of being sick of chocolate. Seriously. That doesn't usually happen for me. So! Along with everybody else I'm at the point of trying to health again. Which for me requires healthy snacks to get me through the day and help me to avoid the bad stuff. I find when I'm after new healthy but not boring recipes I usually turn to the Chocolate Covered Katie blog and this time was no different. Crunchy oat bars, soft oatmeal almond butter cookies and spiced nuts... now the hard part is to not eat them all in one hit!

2/2016 - Seashells and sunburn

I do hope you won't get sick of beach photos but at this time of the year I just can't keep myself away! Usually I'm there pretty early in the morning though - with my ridiculously pale skin I simply can't hang out too much in the hot hot sun... as evidenced by the insane sunburn that I copped while taking these photos! Gotta love those awkward tan lines!

1/2016 - Fresh Air, Fresh Start

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous time over the holiday period and are looking forward to a wonderful new year! According to the 'on this day' feature on Facebook, every year for the last four years I've posted an early morning photo from the beach on the 2nd of January and this year was no different. There's just something about the sea air and sunshine that screams 'healthy fresh start' to me you know? And that is certainly something I need!
I decided to take a bit of a break from the blogging at the end of 2015, I was off work as well and just decided that I needed a break from pretty much everything. Except eating apparently - that I did like a champ for about 4 weeks straight! The only thing I seemed to take photos of was this little bundle of cuteness anyways...
I'm looking forward to visiting all of your blogs to see what you've been up to while I was away!!
