Taking off my training wheels

A few months ago Sam bought a bike because he felt it was a cheaper alternative to going to the gym and according to him 'bike riding is fun'. I scoffed and said it was lame. I never learnt how to ride a bike. I never got past taking the training wheels off because I got bored with it really quickly, so I guess that was my reason for my response. A few weeks ago we were at DFO and I just decided 'hey what if I tried to learn how to ride a bike' and bought the bike and accessories on the spot. I'm glad I did because it turns out bike riding is the most fun thing ever!

I still feel like a dork wearing my size XXL helmet (my head is also plus size).

Me just standing next to Sams bike is ridic. THE SEAT REACHES MY DAMN SHOULDERS! Its ok though coz Sam is a giant so he fits it perfectly.

On Monday we went for the sickest ride ever! It was scorching hot and it just felt like the perfect outdoorsy day. We rode a few km's before I felt like dying. My bike doesn't have any speeds so when I go on a slight incline I have to try my damnedest to get up that hill. After this ride I felt liberated. I felt like I could breathe better and I just felt like I was achieving something within myself. I don't know what it was but it made me feel proud of myself. I feel so happy even just thinking about when the next time I get to go out on a ride is haha

And what would a hot day filled with bike riding be without an ice cream from the servo...

Spring has sprung!

It's finally better weather for outfits and outfit photos! HOORAY!
I took this outfit on its maiden voyage and it made me feel like the baddest bitch. It felt beachy and office chic at the same time and it's just perfect for this amazing weather Melbourne is having.

This seems like its going to be my backdrop of all upcoming OOTD's haha

Sam likes to take photos of me while I'm doing boring things. In this photo I'm sorting out all the crap in my bag and purse. Come to think of it, I collect a lot of interesting stuff in my bag during the week so I should probably do my first ever 'Whats in my bag' post sometime soon.

Shirt: ASOS
Dress: ???
Shoes: Bloch (from a store in Paris)
Lipstick: a mishmash of an unbranded orange lipstick and Sportsgirls 'Fruit Tingle' lipstick

Royal Melbourne Show cuteness

Even though the Royal Melbourne Show was last month, here are some snippets of the day I had with Sam & his brother. 

These cows sitting there just reminded me of me <3


And these little pumpkins cuddling!

This little goose had the cutest toupee I have ever seen!

These little piggies were having a race to their mama and then they started a little piggy fight and were jumping over each other. I just want a pet pig after seeing these little cuties!

I've always loved the show and always will (even if it is getting even more expensive each year).
