Sunday Ramble

Hey Everyone,
Thank you so much for all your support. I can't believe my subscription numbers are now at 20 and I have been blogging for less than a week. Thank you so much for believing in me and being interested enough to follow me. It really means so much.

As an amateur blogger I really have no idea what I am doing. I am just a girl with a passion for beauty products. If something looks pretty, smells nice or involves looking after skin I am all over it.

I want to tell you all a little about myself. I am 33 years old and due to some rather horrid medical conditions I am currently stuck at home a lot of the time apart from keeping the medical profession employed with my frequent Specialist visits. I have also become blind in one eye recently which has taken some adjustment. I am also a diabetic. However in spite of all this I am passionate about life. I feel really blessed to be alive and to have amazing family and friends.

I have two purebred Maltese fur babies who recently turned 1. They are spoiled beyond belief but I wouldn't have it any other way. Banjo is my little boy named after the great Australian Poet Banjo Paterson and my little girl is Molly. Molly was going to be Matilda after Australia's unofficial anthem Waltzing Matilda but when the puppies were born I had an Aunt and Uncle who were terminally ill with cancer and they chose the name Molly. My Aunt and Uncle passed away before I brought the puppies home at 8 weeks and calling her Molly somehow keeps them close. Besides Molly really suits her. Banjo is placid and very serene, Molly is a real little diva and drama queen.

Last night I had a total of zero sleep. Banjo had a very bad tummy upset and being the sensitive little soul that he is required constant tummy rubs, cuddles and reassurance that everything was okay. I had organised a lunch, shopping and movie date with a girlfriend and I didn't want to let her down so seeing as Banjo was much better I went ahead and did that.

I am really glad I went out for the day even if I did look a little worse for ware. I ended up picking up a couple of things that I will share with you soon. I got a fairly significant haul from Lush, picked up some new lipstick and lip balm as well.

I had a yummy lunch at a local restaurant called Plum. Butternut pumpkin Gnocchi Salad which was delicious. To end of the day we went and saw the movie One Night In Paris. Very interesting movie!

Thanks so much for following and I look forward to blogging some more in the coming days.


  1. Poor Banjo, I hope he's okay!
    You truly are dedicated, going out shopping after a sleepless night. Your lunch sounds amazing!
    I'm impatiently waiting to see what you bought xxx

  2. I hope banjo is ok! poor doggy!
    Being sick is actually what made me start blogging too, although I'm not as ill as you i still was at home a lot! I hope that your medical condition improves and that the doctors can help you

  3. Must be something about being sick cause I started blogging when I was sick too. I was bored and lonely so blogging kept me amused and have me something to do.

  4. Hi Grace, Tanks so much for following me. It's interesting how blogging can be started by something like illness. For me my blog provides a little escape. Now I am off to find your blog so I can follow you xxxx
