Hello 2012: Some New Year (sorta) Resolutions

I’m not big on New Year resolutions, but here are a few things I’d like to work on this year. This year I want to spend more time outside. I’m going to leave early so I can walk more places instead of taking the bus. I want to sit outside on sunny days. I’m goingContinue reading “Hello 2012: Some New Year (sorta) Resolutions”

A Year of Sydney Sunsets on Instagram

Sydney has the most gorgeous sunsets. I’ve been snapping photos of the sky for the last year on my iPhone. I love to share them on Instagram and Twitter one by one, but it was really fun to pull them all together into one blog post here. These are a few of my favourite snaps. “With innovation andContinue reading “A Year of Sydney Sunsets on Instagram”

30 Day Challenge: Going Veggo

I had an interesting start to this month’s challenge.  Tuesday was Melbourne Cup and after a few drinks I found myself scarfing down a delicious chorizo pizza.

30 New Places in 30 Days

My July challenge was to visit 30 new places within 30 days. It could be anything from trying a new restaurant or something simple like a street in Sydney I hadn’t walked down before. I am constantly reminding myself to try new places and not forget to explore what’s in my own backyard. The purposeContinue reading “30 New Places in 30 Days”

30 Day Challenge: Dry June

This is my 26th day in a row of not drinking. My current 30 day challenge of having a “dry June” has been less difficult than I originally thought it would be.  Part of me wondered if I would actually keep my promise of not drinking all month. I think that’s why I delayed bloggingContinue reading “30 Day Challenge: Dry June”
