Romantic Escape

lilanfels-2

On the 24th of March 2007 a girl married a boy and for the following five years they lived happily in love. Just in case you were wondering I was the girl and the boy was Steve. To celebrate 9 years together and 5 years of marriage we went over budget and splurged on a fancy pants hotel in the Blue Mountains for the night. We stayed at Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort and Spa which is full of old world charm and detailed upholstery. The bed was huge, soft and the sheets were worth every ... [ Discover More ]

Here Fishy Fishy

fishtank-2

Last month we added two more peeps to our family unit. Steve thought Aidan was more than ready to have his first pet, I on the other hand disagreed and knew that within a few weeks they would become my pets to care for. I sent Steve and Aidan out for dog food one Saturday morning and they came back with a fish tank set up as well as the dog food. I sighed and resigned myself to the fact that I was now the proud owner of fish babies. The tank was set up for almost three weeks before we eventually ... [ Discover More ]

TS14+ Winter 2012 Catalogue Shoot

Danimezza_TS14plus_AprilCatalogue-5

Sometimes the most magical things happen when you least expect it. You could be sitting on your couch in your PJs, reminding your toddler for the millionth time that jumping off the couch isn't as cool as he thinks it is and then BAM you get a phone call about something awesome. I was lucky enough to receive one of those calls and I can't even begin to describe how surreal it all feels. I've been working with TS14+ behind the scenes for months, they're just one of those companies that got me, I ... [ Discover More ]

Female For Life – Part One

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

New Years resolutions to start back up at the gym fell through, I was feeling lethargic, stressed and down about my appearance. It happens, no matter how cheery and bright our self esteem usually is, we'll all go through periods (some more than others) where everything just feels drab, grey and boring. Having active friends has been inspiring (can you believe Rhian ran 11kms!) as well as enlightening. I took the plunge, renewed my gym membership at the YMCA, went out of my comfort zone and ...

Damn You Alexis A/W 2012

DYA_Danimezza_LaceSequin_AW2012-2

Last week I headed into the city to hang out with some of my favourite girls, Megan the owner and designer of Damn You Alexis, a luxurious Australian, Plus Size label and her assistant Amy. It's always lovely to sit across the big black table and talk about current and up coming collections, travel, photo shoots and social media. I always have a great time and I think that's because, besides all the gossiping and munching on tasty baguettes for lunch, everything stops so they can dress me up ... [ Discover More ]

Generations

Yesterday my Grandparents "Poppy" and "Grandma" (my father's parents) came to visit us for the afternoon. We hadn't seen them since September and Grandma had been quite ill. Even though we only live a few hours drive away, Aidan's constant sniffles and colds made it difficult to visit for fear of making her condition worse. It was lovely to see her so well and playful. Aidan couldn't get enough them both, he loved them to bits and as you can tell they loved him right back. They played cars, ... [ Discover More ]

Glossybox

glossy1

When I added my PO Box address to the contact information on my blog I was scared, excited and nervous about what might grace me each day when I trundled down with Aidan to check it. One year on and no nasty surprises so I'm taking that as a win. Late last year I was surprised to receive a parcel, I took it home and Aidan and I ripped into it. I was delighted to find I'd been sent a Glossybox, something I'd heard a little bit about online. Basically it's a monthly subscription but instead of a ... [ Discover More ]
