    In June we headed out to visit the Caboolture Show. This is the first year we’ve lived in the area and I thought it would make a fun day out. I’m always a fan of going to any show. I’ve been to the Royal Easter Show more times than I can remember to count, as well as the Melbourne Show. Compared to those, the Caboolture is a smaller town fare, but still loads of fun! I decided to go for a cute look! I got lots of compliments on the outfit and the hair, which was a wig. My hair was in a state but luckily i’ve had it done…

    Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World

    Craig and I had been talking about visiting Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird World for ages & last year, on Mothers Day, we finally made it. Now, my Mum had just passed away and I wanted to keep myself occupied on the day. I didn’t really think ahead to just how packed it would be due to it being Mothers Day. Apparently, it’s one of the busiest days days of the year! Saying that, it wasn’t crazy packed. We still easily got seating for lunch, had no problems with parking and was fine signing up for the bird tour. We walked around the gardens a bit, they were gorgeous, as…

    My day at Sydney Zoo

    Just over a week ago my partner and I headed down to Sydney to visit family over the Easter holiday. We packed up the car with the dog and bird and drove down. I was thinking of things to do and decided we should check out the new zoo. It’s not exactly new, it was opened in 2019, but it’s new to me. Sydney Zoo is only around 15 minutes away from my parent’s place so seemed the perfect place. First up, parking, whilst free, was horrible. That being said, we did go on the Saturday of the Easter long weekend. We pre-booked our tickets but spent nearly 30 minutes…

    A visit to The Three Sisters

    Ahhh, The Three Sisters. For some reason, the Three Sisters always feels like home to me. I’m not sure why. I’ve never lived ‘close’ to them. My parents live at the base of the Blue Mountains and thinking about it, the 3 sisters are closer than Sydney City is. The Blue Mountains is a really beautiful and special place and i’ll use any excuse to visit. It was hard getting a good portrait picture due to the sun glare. My boyfriend and I headed up on Good Friday, which was probably a bad idea due to the insane amount of people there. We headed over to Scenic World because I’ve…

    Event – Charlie & the Chocolate Factory

    August 15th, 2019 Yep, I’m still catching up on old shenanigans. This time it’s all about Charlie & the Chocolate Factory – The New Musical. At the last minute, my BFF Mallory invited me as her plus one to the opening night (read her review here). I quickly threw together a quirky Wonka-esque outfit and ran out the door. Apparently, I’m a bad nut 🙁 I really enjoyed the show, I liked how they modernised all the ‘winners’ characters. It was nice seeing a more diverse cast. It’s definitely something the kids would love as I feel that’s who it’s aimed at, but it was also quite long. It made…
