I'm just a little bit excited.

Because it's FINALLY almost THIS weekend. And this weekend - my bestie Claire and I are off on a girrrrls getaway!! 

Claire turned 40 in February [ I, of course, blogged about it! You can see all the festivities here ] and her super-lovely husband thought that the perfect gift would be *drum roll* a weekend away in Byron with me. Hahaha. 

Umm, YEAH!

We're staying at Byron at Byron. One of my favourite places in Byron to relax and hang out [ T booked me in for a surprise spa massage on mother's day just last month so I feel a bit crazy-spoilt going back again already ] but I haven't actually stayed in a couple of years and I'm looking forward to soaking it all up. 

Especially as the last few months since we got back from our big trip have been quite the emotional roller-coaster for me as the boys settled into school and I adjusted to my new creative life. Meanwhile, Claire has been intensively working on her new business: The Shabby Chick [ I tell you, the woman is seriously entrepreneurial ], chasing after her own THREE boys, generally getting covered in paint, and training her new puppy not to chew on paintbrushes, or her bras. Unsuccessfully.

We haven't seen each other in four months.  So... 



Dog-reuniting-aside we have a hit list:

1. Pedicures.

2. Eyebrow waxing [ okay, that's just me ].

3. Buying new sunglasses.


I'm also prettttty sure we'll be getting dressed up, talking about dogs and blogs and furniture, listening to lots of music, going to the movies [ Has anyone seen The Fault in Our Stars - recommend?? ] , eating too much chocolate, and taking photos.

Including, ummm, the occasional selfie :)

Stay tuned - and let's see if I manage to post anything else before Monday or not. Now, I had better go get some beauty sleep *damn you gorgeous bestie!!*

  2. Sounds like such a fun time...I can honestly say I do not know when the last time I had a "girl" night was....probably long before my daughter was born -- I think it's about due time!

  4. I don't think I've ever had a girls getaway. I think I need to change that! Looks like a lot of fun : )

    1. Yes you DO Lissa!! We actually planned our next one over the weekend. Not until October but I can't wait :) xx

  5. It looks like you're having tons of fun! I haven't seen The Fault in Our Stars yet but I need to!

    1. Hello Justina, Oh TAKE TISSUES! I didn't and then we went out to dinner straight from the cinema and I swear I must have looked a MESS! It didn't help that a woman collapsed in the cinema during the film - it's okay, she was alright. I think she had low blood sugar - so my nerves were shot too. Damn sad films! xx
