I spent a weekend in gorgeous Bendigo recently, as I had a function I was attending in the evening and The Captain and I decided to stay overnight. I love Bendigo as it has so much going for it as a city. Aside from the pretty streetscapes and grand architecture it is also a thriving centre for arts and culture. A trip to Bendigo is never complete without a visit to the Bendigo Art Gallery. There is always, and I mean always, a fantastic exhibition to see whenever you are there – and the permanent collection is always worth another look.

I love boots, especially long boots. If you live on the goldfields and your winter wardrobe does not include long winter boots then I must sadly inform you that you are DOING IT WRONG!!!
The best thing about living somewhere that has such distinct seasons is the fact that we have a real winter and the need for a proper winter wardrobe. Boots are an essential item to this! I recently spotted an advertisement for Sydney tourism, which pictured a model in a summer dress with spaghetti straps, standing on a sunny balcony. I cannot remember the exact slogan but it I was along the lines of ‘enjoy winter in Sydney’. Now don’t get me wrong – I love Sydney, I really do. But lets be honest here, winter is not a summer dress, nor a sun tan.

On the weekend my beautiful sister FindingFemme (pictured above) threw me a surprise baby shower. I had not intended on having a baby shower as our house is in the middle of renovations and we are currently living without a kitchen or living room. The nursery has finally been painted but the bedroom opposite is still a work in progress. This means my life consists of many layers of dust, eating food that is microwavable only, doing dishes in a plastic tub, and dodging boxes to get from one room to the other. Not the ideal location for a social function!

I love a good scarf. They are like as warm comfy friend in the winter time. This gorgeous find has become my winter favourite. I purchased it a few weeks ago from Supre and have been wearing it constantly! I love colour and there is never a better time than winter to go for bright colours, it instantly lifts your mood and brightens your day, especially on the days when you don't even get to see the sky.

This evening FindingFemme and I went for a short stroll around the lake. The leaves on the trees have turned a beautiful yellow and the sky is clear for some amazing sunsets. The weather is still mild during the day, but in the evening it becomes very cold.

Today was a pretty special day. We officially made our first purchase for baby! After we bought the baby car seat the man in the shop asked if we were madly getting everything together for the birth and was a little surprised when we told him it was the first thing we've bought. I guess we're just really relaxed. There are enough things to stress about when expecting a baby without worrying about the things that are in your control. We'll get everything we need in time; we don't need to pressure ourselves to hurry.

Being pregnant has a big impact on your clothing 'favourites' list. Items I used to love I now despise and have banished to another room of our house. I thinks it's important to purge your wardrobe early on in pregnancy as otherwise you stare depressingly at the large number of clothes you can no longer fit into and waste time stressing over what to wear.

Welcome to my first blog post.
Yep, after all the peer pressure I am finally going to give this blogging business some effort. I really don't have an excuse now that I have had the blog, design, photos etc all just handed to me ready to go! (Special mention to my sister FindingFemme for basically doing everything from setting up the blog, all my social media accounts and then taking photos! I will do my best!)
