I’m just an Australian girl with the world at her feet, learning about life and myself every single day. Join me as I tell you stories, share my outlook on life and just talk utter garbage! It will be fun, I promise.”

My Christmas “to do” list: 

  • Take way too many photos in the work Christmas party photo booth (DONE)


  • Find where all the best Christmas lights are in your area (please recommend some! One from last year below)
  • Download a good Christmas album, see below
  • Use the excuse, ohh it’s Christmas time to buy a few treats but then wrap them up for yourself
  • Don’t be hard on yourself for eating a few chocolates, we are only human
  • Wrap all your presents to match your Christmas tree IMG_7821
  • Make a gingerbread house, or just decorate it like I did in 2015 IMG_3212
  • Try and be in the spirit, everyone is more joyful at Christmas time
  • Wear something festive to work or just whenever
  • Shots with work colleagues
  • Get into arguments in shopping centres car parks (or not)
  • Christmas ham and toasted cheese sandwiches
