My First Staycation in Brisbane

My First Staycation in Brisbane

In case you missed my recent coffee talk on the blog (read it here - ‘New Year Coffee Talk #4 + I’m on ‘Staycation’’), on Saturday, 26 January 2019, the first public holiday long weekend this year here in Brisbane, I decided to take myself on a little getaway, but as I stayed in the city where I reside, it was more of a ‘staycation’ rather than ‘getting away’.

Firstly, I want to talk about how much I love the above photo.. in this moment, at sunrise on Tuesday, 1 January 2019, I was completely content with where I was heading in terms of my goals and plans ahead.

I started things that I didn’t finish, I picked up some bad habits and because of this I wasn’t as kind to myself as I should have been, but there is still a lot I should be proud of.. a lot of beautiful memories, amazing opportunities, exciting milestones, fun achievements and new paths taken.

5 Tips and Tricks to Get Through the Festive Season with SPARKLE

If you didn’t already know (ie. are that person living under a rock - which I doubt my sparkling readers are), we are well and truly into the busy season now, or as I like to call it, the ‘Festive Season’. Public transport is becoming emptier, the shopping centres are becoming busier, the streets are decorated and sparkling, and if you are like me, you have a lot to do (a lot).
