Life Changes and Makeovers

Have you noticed that whenever there is a huge change in your life that you also feel the urge to reflect it by changing your physical self or surroundings?

Changes are never easy…


The change may be anything from breaking up with your bf/gf or moving house and in my case, changing jobs. Even if the change might be for the better, it’s never easy, especially for me. I’m the type of person that gets extremely attached to things, and by things I usually mean people – or Chanel ;). Knowing that the people you see on a daily basis that make you smile laugh and that you share all your experiences with will suddenly change. Although it’s never goodbye forever it is going to be very different.

Relationships will be tested


It’s in times like this that you really test the strength of your relationships. Just like when you change schools, break up with your first love or move to a different neighborhood you start off promising everyone that you’ll keep in touch and nothing will change. But it always does. I’m sure we all have best friends that have been forgotten, neighbors that we used to see everyday but now we don’t even call once in a year, and first loves we look back on because we don’t see them around anymore. It usually not the fault of any particular person but new friendships are made and sometimes distance just makes it all too inconvenient. 

Bonds best kept warm


Although not all relationships will have the same intensity, I plan on trying my best to keep a fair few that I value dearly. The bonds best kept are the ones who you may not see often but when you do, it’s like nothings changed and you’re best friends again. I’m lucky to have quite a few of these connections. Apart from the natural evolution of relationships being those that are strong will continue being strong naturally and those that are weak will naturally die off, there are things that I’m planning to do to keep the bond that I’ve developed. One of those is sending random messages whenver I think about someone. My good friend with whom I’ve shared many fun and exciting adventures with has started to do this and being on the receiving end – it makes you feel really special to them.  Just receiving a message saying:

“YOU JUST POPPED INTO MY HEAD AND IT MADE ME SMILE πŸ™‚ I GUESS I’M JUST GRATEFUL TO HAVE YOU IN MY LIFE… MISS YOU!”


If you are not into the sappy lovey thing you could always just send random jabs at them randomly πŸ™‚ Something along the lines of “you smell” may suffice.

I won’t be surprised if I lose some friendships along the way- all huge changes do bring about some loss, but I’ll be grateful to walk away with just a few more special people to add to my awesome friends I may not see everyday bucket πŸ™‚ 

Time for a life makeover


Well not really but I did do a home make-over and dyed my hair a much darker color after years of my light brown orange (sometimes messes). Well that is also partly due to my complete laziness since dying your roots every few weeks is not fun at all.

Just like all things what was once shiny new and exciting can suddenly feel like it’s taking up too much space in your life and in this instance – it was my beautiful king furniture Delta leather lounge. I paid a whopping $4,000 for this baby when I first got it and it sold for much less than half of it, but I was relieved that it has gone, to be replaced by a much smaller Ikea fabric two seater sofa. Cream has been replaced with a dark silver grey, and I have completely changed the layout of my house. The new layout gives us room for a two person workspace but I also had to sadly let go of my MALM dressing table which holds all my make up- it was actually buckling under the weight of it all.

SHOPPING WAS FUN THOUGH! HERE ARE SOME HIGHLIGHTS:

Outfit of the day πŸ™‚
First stop was Officeworks to look for a new chair! This one was cute – and the backrest made it so comfy. Felt crap without the backrest though, so I moved on…

After we figured out that the back leaning mechanism could be loosened for a light person like me I decided this chair was good for me πŸ™‚
Next stop was IKEA, and we were hungry! I got tempted by the new salt and pepper squid on the menu and supplemented it with a kids meal so I wouldn’t still be hungry πŸ™‚
Ash got the large meatballs, balls that I could steal and eat too ^^
Worked off the food with some heavy lifting :)!!
Then played in the children’s section πŸ™‚
Finally came home with so much furniture I had to drive with my chest up against the wheel! It was definitely a learning experience! We bought a sofa and a desk :
