making memories

Hottest 100 of 2011 from Lora-Mae Adrao on Vimeo.

How awesome is this video that my friend Lora put together from the footage she took at our Hottest 100 Party? It's totally rad and she is awesome. Everyone looks so happy and it just screams fun!

I am off to watch it for the 15th time!

Project Life: January

For the past few weeks, I have been playing around with Project Life.

I have always loved taking photos, collecting bits and pieces and recording thoughts and feelings related to those photos but I have never discovered a system that works for me.

I loved the idea of scrapbooking. I've brought papers and stickers, developed lots of photos, spent hours searching blogs and yet, every time I sat down to create something I got caught up with the need to make it perfect. To make it look like the awesome layouts and designs I continually saw on the internet. In the end I was just wasting time.

I love that it is a place that shows my current adventures, passions, hobbies and interest.

I love that I can work on it in bits and pieces and when inspiration strikes.

I love that I can be as creativity as I want or as simple as I want.

I love that it is a place to store the instax photos that I am collecting.

I love that it sits for weeks of time being a collection of words and things and post it notes until I am able to print the photos.

I love that I am taking time to document and record the now.

point + shot: escaping the heat

With a public holiday starting the weekend early on Thursday, from over here it's felt like a long and hot few days in which I've struggled to keep up with what day it is.

Come Sunday afternoon, I was completely over feeling hot and lazy so we decided to head down to our favourite secret beach. The beach entrance looks like a driveway and there is barely any people there. I spent a lot of my time drooling over the collection of boots. picking out which jet ski I would like to call my own and swimming in the water.

Loving summer and late afternoon beach sessions.

Australia Day

Yesterday was Australia day, also known as Hottest 100 Day around here.

We celebrated with the traditional BBQ at our friends house with a watertight, an awesome assortment of salads, a banquet of desserts and I made this awesome fruit tingle cake.

The rest of the day we sat around listening to the countdown, debating the countdown and keeping track of who got the most amount of songs in the countdown!

Awesome day, with awesome friends.

PS - For those of you paying along at home, I got 8 out of the 10 songs I voted for made it into the countdown!

moving into 2012

Towards the end of last year..

- Work got really really busy.
- Birthdays and Christmas and New Years were celebrated.
- Summer holidays were had.

I missed blogging towards the end of last year when things got really busy, this year I hope to get back into it because I love having my own little place on the internet and it's fun reading and interacting with you all.

I hope to get into regular blogging this year and have a few ideas ready to try out. I hope this will become a place to share my projects, ideas and little snippets of my life.

2012 I am so ready for you.
