I’m off to dinner in my super cute, super comfortable ‘don’t ride up your thighs as you walk because they are the perfect length’ @featherandnoise PARKER SHORT $59, Size 10 (gifted). I’ve actually worn these a few times, they are a winner! Cami @cottonon shoes & jacket @kmartaus✨ We have two more nights up here in Byron Bay, it’s been just lovely. Unfortunately our children are extreme homebodies so they didn’t get the holiday memo. Gemi doesn’t understand why we have to have meals out and just wants to go back home for her peanut butter on toast 🤦‍♀️😂.

This is the face of someone who gets VERY EXCITED over a VIP shopping day! Over the next two days @pacificwerribee (Oct 18) and @pacificepping (Oct 19) are hosting a VIP DAY – featuring a free beauty bar, exclusive in-store offers and incredible giveaways! #SeekFindPlay #spon

I was recently gifted this @ryobianz ONE+ Cordless Line Trimmer as a solution to mow the grass in our small backyard. I’m officially obsessed with it. My favourite part is that it is battery operated making it so easy to use. Head to my stories to see it in action and to my blog to read a full review.

This morning I had the pleasure of celebrating the launch of Holly from @motherhoodmelbourne pod cast by doing a visit and tour of @stkildamums with a group of fellow Melbourne bloggers. It was emotional to say the least but very eye opening. St Kilda mums do such amazing work. They ALWAYS need prams, cots, and car seats so please keep this in mind if you have something to donate.

Also a huge thank you to the small businesses who made and/or donated some beautiful items to @stkildamums I know you have made a family in need very happy:

FINALLY My @shein_au @sheinofficial haul. So it took seven days to arrive and I’m SUPER happy. The sizing was definitely small, I ordered all mediums and would have preferred a bigger fit. The quality is fine, and I feel very similar to the pictures advertised. I definitely chose some random items but am happy with my first purchase. I would recommend and shop there again. Head to my stories to see these dresses on. I’m also interested to hear your experiences with SHEIN. This post is not sponsored or products gifted x

Today I was not only treated to a eyelash tint and lift by the lovely team over at @luxbrowsandlashes I also had the opportunity to close my eyes and relax for an hour during the treatment, it was blissful. Swipe left for the before and after, I was blown away by how amazing they look, it’s like I have permanent mascara on. The treatment costs $115 and lasts 6-8weeks. So now I’m all set for my upcoming holidays. Definitely getting this treatment again, thanks ladies. Take a look at my stories for a better BEFORE and AFTER. #invited #gifted
