HAVE YOU HEARD?


After a crazy weekend of celebrating our friends Hen's and Bucks (needless to say the chores and shopping didn't get done) - the boy came home from a long day's work and being the good girlfriend I am (hehe) I suggested take out for dinner.

But rather than doing the standard McDonalds or Hungry Jacks, we decided to order delivery from Menulog a fabulous new take-away food and delivery website that has a huge range of local restaurants available to order from the click of a button.

Step 1.  Type in your postcode (see image below)


Step 2.  A list of restaurants available to order from depending on your location - both takeaway and delivery appear for you to choose from (see image below)


Step 3. You choose your restaurant and order the scrumptious food!


There was a decent selection to choose from, however we went with ALs Convenience Aussie & Indian Takeaway which has a mixture of cuisine which was perfect for us as we both had cravings for different things. Being a blogger and fashion stylist, online shopping is second nature so doing it for food was just as exciting.

After placing our order, we received a text message confirming the order and advising us the expected delivery time which was about 45 mins, and a contact number to call them if we should have any issues.

Less than 30 mins later our food arrived - incredibly impressed! Hot and steamy (which is always a worry with chips, but they were crispy and fresh and so tasty!). The delivery guy was a happy chappy too lol.

The Butter Chicken was mild (as requested) with plenty of chunks of chicken, and the cheese naan was fresh and easy to tear.

The boy smashed into the burger and demolished it in a matter of minutes, which is a pretty good sign.

Overall, I was so impressed with the quality of food, the price $35 inc delivery, the speed of the delivery and the food portions.

If you're thinking of getting takeaway/delivery seriously consider Menulog and see what's available in your area for a healthier option and support local businesses.

QT FASHION WEEK & AWARDS 2014


Well it's upon us again, (my how time flies) but this year my involvement is limited to that of a Blogger. Being involved in an event like this is such an incredible experience, and if you're interested in being in the fashion industry in any capacity I highly recommend you volunteering. 

Apart from getting hands on experience and getting the opportunity to learn and meet from some of the best creatives and designers in the industry, it's money can't buy cred for your Resume!

Unfortunately, last year my involvement was hindered by some personal issues which caused severe stress and triggered my Bipolar and I was unable to finish my role as Official Blogger, which was devastating to me as I had worked hard and was excited to be part of the QTFWA 2013. At the time, I was still keeping my illness secret so it was even harder.

But it's a new year, and I'm so excited to be able to attend the Up & Coming Swimwear Parade which is on Friday 30 May at 6.30pm at the amazing QT Gold Coast. (click on the image to purchase tickets). The line up of the designers looks fresh and modernistic and to have a platform like QTFWA that could potentially launch their line is exciting to be able to see!


 UP & COMING SWIMWEAR SHOW

As i'll be a bridesmaid at a wedding on Saturday 31 May, I'll be unable to attend the Up & Coming Designer Show High Tea at 11.00am 


 Up & Coming Designer Show High Tea

and the amazing QT Gala Designer Dinner at 6.30pm


 QT Gala Dinner

But i'll be watching closely on social media as the designers for the Gala Dinner are yet to be released.

So stay tuned, my coverage may even be posted on my new look Blog - YAYYYY!!!!

LIFE IS NOT IN VAIN

Believe when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another's pain, life is not in vain
Helen Keller. 

Spiralling a bit today but this quote has given me a positive perspective to cling on to with the launch of my blog on the horizon. I hope by being open about living with bipolar and raising awareness about mental illness if I can help at least one person it's all been worthwhile.
