and the trumpets they go..

I can't stop listening to this song. I am not the biggest Jason Derulo fan...it annoys me how he has to sing his name...but this song makes me really happy. It is super catchy!

Treasured Finds...


I love finding different things that I would add to a house...paintings, flowers, furniture etc. I am blown away by people's creativity and would love to have the money to go on a shopping spree to decorate a house! Here are some of my favourite pieces :).

This would look great outside, and depending on if the metal is protected, would look great if it rusted also.

What a day to daydream...

It is only Tuesday, and it feels like I have had a full weeks worth of work already. Within the past six months I have learnt some very big lessons and I know that there are still more to come. Sometimes it is very difficult to get perspective in life when you  are working full time and have little time to spare outside of those eight, painfully busy hours in the workplace. I do wonder sometimes how much of our lives are spent working and how much time do we get to take care of ourselves, to have fun, and to enjoy our loved ones. We all seem to be aware that life is too short, however we maintain our 9 to 5 jobs in hope of becoming more successful at what we do, and aiming to make a decent amount of money in order to set ourselves up for future happiness. Some days, I find myself daydreaming about how nice it would be to grow a sustainable garden on a tropical island, surrounded by beautiful scenery and wildlife. 


The island would be famous for its plentiful amount of chocolate and coffee beans, which are then sold to a wealthy overseas market to keep the island thriving. I would also like to think that the island could have its own religion derived from Buddhism. I do wonder how much work I get done when I daydream, or if the daydreaming is a therapeutic way to maintaining a balance of the mind. I believe it is so important to focus on the special things in life, and be conscious of how much time we spend working...sometimes in jobs that make us tired and unhappy...all for what? money? success?

Since life is so short, why make it shit?!

"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follws like a shadow that never leaves"

Lorde "Team"


Something for a Saturday...

My life is filled with awkward moments...which in a way, makes it enjoyable. Last night, at the end of a hard week of work I figured McDonalds was the only option for tea. As I was speaking to the skinny teenager at the drive through window, I was miles away...just too tired to really care what he was saying. I heard him say "drive onto the next window", instead of just driving on, I said "you too"...which was my automatic response to people saying "have a good day". I saw the look he gave me, which was along the lines of, what the f#*k was that about...so I drove off in a hurry, and nearly took off my side mirror along the drive through wall. I also have many moments where I am walking, and do that strange thing where you bump into someone and neither of you knows which way to go. I have now learnt to not try and figure out which way to go, instead I just stand in the one place. Unfortunately, some people also use this same strategy which then results in standing awkwardly in front of a complete stranger. I can't help but laugh! Anyway, onto different things...
I have another song from Lorde to post. I think this girl is super talented, and I am loving her music right now.

 The song is called Team... Turn it up and enjoy...

Sweater Weather...

I like this song...that's all I have to say :)


Lorde!



This lovely girl is amazing! She is super talented, and I am proud to say that she is a New Zealander...homegrown talent right here!

I am enjoying all of her songs, and her unique combination of music genres.

It is hard to believe that she is only 16 years old. She is handling the music industry and recognition so well. She is intriguing, unique, and I can imagine her making a mark with her music in a big way overseas.
Watch this space!! 
visit her website :

and her very popular song...Royals

Holy Grail

"and baby it's amazing I'm in this maze with you, I just can't crack your code, one day your screaming you love me love now and the next day you're so cold, one day you're here, one day you're there, one day you care..."


I just can't seem to get enough of this song. I think Justin is super talented, and I have always been a huge fan of hip hop...so Jay Z is  good value.
Turn it up and enjoy the diversity

Little Ducklings...


Little Sweeties...



It has been awhile since I have posted. I went away on holiday, up North, in the direction of sunny weather!!! 
I wanted to post up some pics of the little ducklings that I came across. Unfortunately the circumstances were not so good when I found them. I was heading into town with my Dad, and saw a duck killed on the road, it was horrible, but what made it worse was that there were ducklings still near it. It was a mother duck, who must have been trying to take her ducklings across the road...on a main intersection. The lady driving ahead of us had killed the mother duck by accident. I pulled over, I could not have left the ducklings there. The lady who killed the duck got out of her car as well and followed me to where the ducklings were. They had run away into a nearby paddock so we had to find each of them in the long grass. I ended up holding them in my dress, and Dad took over the driving to take me home to look after them. I got home and just cried. I literally bawled my eyes out because they did not have a mother. I ended up making a little nest for them with some soft jerseys and tea towels. For awhile there, they did not look good. One was limping, and the others seemed lifeless. I just kept watching them, and kept them in the en suite during the night. They were not eating, and hardly drinking. The next day however was a complete change.I began hand feeding them, and set up a small dish for them to swim in. They were perfect. After three days with them, I had to leave as I had flights booked. I left them in the capable hands of my mum and dad. Within a few weeks, they were ready to leave their home. They were taken to a private pond on a farmers property. Thankfully everything turned out ok, and I was so happy that I was able to help them. They were adorable!!!!
