Confessions - Oh how I missed ya!

I missed confessions, and Friday Faves ... and blogging... and answering emails! I missed my blog guys! This post is more of an update on me, because although there have been posts on the blog, I have been largely MIA (for good reason). 

1. I'm still on vacation and loving it ... My cousins wedding is next weekend in Sydney and I cant wait to share that and other Aussie adventures with you guys. The problem? See i bought a new cam and now allll of my pics are on said fancy cam .... and while I have taken some pics off the memory cards and put them into folders etc ... its a MUCH longer process than snapping iPhone pictures and uploading them. And that is exactly why my last post was full of iPhone pics and I have not written any Aussie posts yet ... it happens .... I'll soon get to my recaps. I have no other excuse besides ...



2. Im fairly certain that as soon as i return home I will be getting a new design for the blog. I was already getting stir crazy with my own (I like change), but seeing everyone with new cute designs ... now has me itching for a change... like now.


3. I spent an obscene amount of money on the most amazing smelling candles for my apartment ... Like I won't even say the price. I bought the candles at a lovely candle shop in the Hunter Valley in Newcastle Australia ... and I do not regret it. In fact I cannot wait to try them. Candles people ....


4. I pet a freaking Koala (more on this to come) ....
(I posted a horrible similar pic on Instagram - both taken with the same iPhone - and now I want to delete it and post this one ... ever happen to you? Ugh )

Short and sweet today ... I have a lot of blogs to catch up on! 


Have a great Wednesday guys :)

Linking up with Kathy and Liz !

  3. Oh my gosh a koala - that is so exciting!!! I totally hear you on the photos on real cameras vs. iphones - they are much better quality but sitting down and doing the transfer then the upload - total pain!!! Can't wait to see what new design you decide on!

  10. Seriously candles are the best!! Love the Koala pic and I just say on the news the other day they sleep on average 20-22 hours per day!! I want that life!

  11. OMG! Look at that giant sleepy koala! So cool!!

  12. OMG that is the best picture ever! Spending copious amounts of money on candles is always okay. I think I am on the verge of a major blog redesign too...I haven't had mine for that long (like 6 months? I don't think that's too long) but the desire to change literally everything about it is just getting stronger. I may or may not have spent an embarrassing amount of time last night down the Pinterest rabbit hole looking for idea and working on a new design...

  15. Delete it girl, I hate seeing pictures which arent the best version of the moment they can be! I really wish I could pet a koala, it's on the bucketlist :)

  16. I can't wait to see pics from your trip. I have the same issue with uploaded photos from an expensive camera taking longer than the phone!

    A blog overhaul is in order for me as well but I don't really want to take the time to do it. maybe someone should do it for me!

  17. Obviously I've been MIA too because I didn't even know you went missing. I'm still trying to catch up to all the comments from a month ago so please bear with me! Lol.

    Hope you have a wonderful vacation and can't wait to see all the photos of your trip!

    2. NO shame on that candle thing. You're on vacation! And a good-smelling home is worth a whole hell of a lot when you need comfort.
    3. Thank you for giving me two RDJ gifs today :)

  24. I spent a summer is Aus and it was magical!! I miss it terribly and it's definitely on my to return to list. I got to hold a koala and let me tell you, those things have the sharpest claws ever AND they smell. They're adorable but a hot, hot mess.

    xoxo,

  25. The koala is so cute! It is so much easier taking and uploading pics with our phones. But, the pictures from the camera are probably awesome so they are worth waiting to see. I can't wait to see the recap from your trip. Haha I love candles too and would probably splurge as well.
