Its Friday!!!

Happy Friday everybody! 

I don't have a great deal planned for the weekend.  Marty is doing overtime shifts today and tomorrow to try and raise some more money for our big spend up at the Maitland Camping Show in 3 weeks time - its going to be BIG people! We're hoping to get the last of the big stuff that we need for our trip eg. Roof Top Tent, Bullbar and side brushes for the Navara...I hope thing that's the last of the big stuff? 

Does anybody have anything planned for mothers day? Marty and I are going out for brunch with my parents  because brunch is only my FAVE meal of the day!

Work is damn hectic at the moment...which I love and hate all at the same time.  I tend to work better when I'm under the pump but people really can be frustrating sometimes!

Anyhoo...enjoy your weekend peeps!!

Bloggers Block...

Now I know I'm not THE most regular blogger on the fact I'm pretty damn irregular with it...but this time is much worse.  I have total bloggers block! I cant think of a single damn thing to write about....cant even think of anything to instagram at the moment...

Its not that nothing good is happening, life is fantastic at the moment.  Soooo I thought I'd just list a few things that are going on at the moment, wish everybody a happy friday and make like a shepherd and move the flock on!

1. I've been doing an online photography course through Click Photography.  I want to fine tune some skillz or just get some...that would be nice! and learn about landscape photography before we go on our trip

2. We are slowly but surely getting ready for the trip. We Marty has now swapped the tub on the back of the ute for a tray which was a massive job. 

It looks like a whole new car! it will be even more so when we get the bullbar put on.  The tray still needs to be painted, it will be colour coded to the same colour as the body. 

3. I've been learning how to water ski.  I can get up and cruise along on 2 skis but have done numerous face plants on one ski and a wake board...I can get up there...just cant stay there. 

4. I've been bouncing ideas around about a business that may or may not occur next year - exciting!!!

5. Mostly all I can think about is our trip away - BRING ON SEPTEMBER!!

Does anybody else suffer from major bloggers block? I know I'm not the only one (obviously!) but how do you overcome it??

Happy Friday Everybody! I hope you've all got fantastic plans for the weekend even if they are just to chillaxe and do sweet eff all!!

A picture says a thousand words....

These ones may not say a THOUSAND words, but they show that we had a damn good time!

I know its a bit late but I thought it was time that I put up some wedding pics so here we go!

 I couldn't be happy with the photos and just the whole fact....I think I could do it all again!!

Hi Everybody! I haven't done many outfit posts on my lil old blog but I attended a very classy event on the weekend and feel that my carefully planned outfit needs to be shared. 

It was my sister in-laws 20th birthday and we attended several well known drinking establishments in our best finery for the day. 

This is otherwise known as the Country Pub Crawl with a Bright & Tight theme. 

That's me on the left with my other sister in-law, not the birthday girl, before things got messy...

I'll start from my feet up...just in case any of you ever want to recreate this look...

Shoes - hand me downs from my sister
Leg Warmers - Best n Less
Tights - Kmart
Clutch - Kmart
Dress - Kmart
Jacket - ICE
Bangles - Kmart

I recently had another style session with the wonderful Sam Woods over at Vibrant Concepts....I think I'm a little addicted!  My friend Leah and I decided that we'd do one for a bit of a girly night and to get an outfit for our lovely friend Bree's wedding on 6 April.  This is what I ended up with. 

Jacket from SES Fashion and earrings from Lovisa

Dress from Dotti

Shoes from Wanted

There are many things that I love about Sam but there are a few things that really stand out!

1. She gets me to try on things that I would normally look at, really like but say to myself "that wont fit you" or "that wont look any good on you, your too chubby to wear something like that" and walk away from and 9 times out of 10, they actually look really good.  
2. She doesn't automatically take you to the most expensive shops.  She will of course, if that's what you'd like, but she will also say "how about we try to get out of this as inexpensively as possible, there's a few shops we can try that are always on trend and not pricey, if we cant find anything there, then we'll move up".
3.  Sam is always super friendly but so professional.  She always knows exactly who you are, which tells you that she keeps a file of you and goes through her notes before she see's you.  Now this may just seem like normal good business sense to most people and of course it is! BUT I recently went to my Doctor and the first thing he asked me was "now have I ever seen you before Erin"...I've been going to the same doctor for the past 6 years!!

So thank you Sam!!

I'm loving my new outfit and cant wait to wear it!!

My sister is having a session in April and I get to tag along.  I'm really interested in what Sam has to say.  Trish and I have always been around the same weight and clothing size but completely different body shapes.  We are also of fairly similar colouring so it will be interesting to see if she ends up being a different colour pallet to me. 

Have you ever been to a stylist or had your colour pallet done?

Hi All!  This is my life on instagram over the past couple of weeks.  Come on over and follow me @ezmcgrath. 
Flashback Fridays - dreaming about our European Holiday in 2010 - the Austrian Alps

Still dreaming about Europe - days in Florence

Walking the pooches - this guy pulls for the entire walk and then is buggered at the end. 

This little dude came for a visit

I have a fairly extensive shoe collection so I've made myself a pact that I'm going to start wearing them on a daily basis rather than saving them for special occasions...that generally dont come!

This lil chick came to visit for the weekend when her Mum delivered my wedding photos. 

I went on a hens night and had these - THE most freaking delicious shots ever! Jam Doughnuts!

I've been experimenting with YIAH and made my first ever potato bake...yes people, this is the first time in my life that I have ever made potato bake.  I have eaten a LOT of it but never made it.  Its pretty messy but I have to say it was pretty tasty!

Since we've started planning our Cape Trip my morning reading has changed quite a bit.  I've gone from checking facebook and looking at gossip sites to readin 4WDing magazines....

This is the river behind where I work...we've had a bit of rain lately! the pic is a little deceiving though, it wasn't quite THAT close to the fence!

The Maitland Taste Festival was on last weekend.  The mall is so full of colour and excitement - I love it!
