10 things i love

I was tagged by the ever so gorgeous Idee Geniale to do a 10 things i love post!!! and i actually have recieved a few tags like this in the past and havent done one (so sorry) so this is all for you guys haha!!!

1 Ferrero Rocher - I am nuts about this chocolate, i literally have a sickening addiction to it!!! i have been given trays of this chocolate for christmas and such and always gorge myself stupid!!! so far nothing has beat it... ohh so good.

2 Frank Sinatra - He is my ultimate man, so suave and handsome his voice is pretty dreamy too!! my grandfather used to listen to him all the time and as a little girl i remember we would dance around the loungeroom singing at the top of our lungs..this magazine i bought online its from the 60's everytime i read it i crack up the ads are so funny everything from pointy bras to how to keep your hair shiny by brushing it 50 times a day.. i love it!!

3 Cupcakes - Not only they super pretty but they taste AMAZING...but you all knew that anyway!!!! i have tried so many tmes to make cupcakes but they never taste as good as a bought one from the Kalamunda Cupcake shop...ohhh to die for.

4 Autumn - It is my favourite season, i get chills its so magical!!! everyone is so much happier and smiling the trees are all magnificent colours and life just seems all the more wonderful!!!

5 Passionfruit Sorbet - Ok, if you havent tried this YOUR MAD... i demand you get in your car drive to the icecream shop and try it!!!! you wont look back i promise...its like a party in your mouth!!! a passionfruit party hahaha (the perfect summer treat)

6 Fields - Im such a country girl, was raised on a farm on 10 acres with all the animals imaginable.. now i live in the city it can get a bit much sometimes.. so i take a drive through the countryside find a field to wander around in and just breathe in the sweet air... i can literally get lost for hours and not care..

7 Baths - Who dosent love a good bath (check out how amazing my bath is) its like bathing in a cocoon!!!! nothing beats it..just reading a good book with a (large) glass of wine!!!! ahhh i feel relaxed already just thinking about it.

8 Family - This is a photo i took of my niece its one of my favourites, it captures her cheeky smile and eyes!!! she is literally the most beautiful little girl set to break millions of boys hearts :) my famiy is very important to me although we dont get too see each other im always trying to keep in touch as often as i can..

9 Photography - Pretty much keeps me sane, allows me to get all my creative frustration out in any way i choose.. i dont feel like i have appreciated the day until i pick up my camera and see the world in a different way. It actually makes you stop and LOOK at the world..every little bee or flower and keeps me living an inspired life..

10 Coffee - okay...here is an example of what i look like without coffee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! take a good look :) (dont worry i dont use that mug for my coffee i think i would have a heart attack) since living off noodles and coffee packets we borrowed from basically anywhere when i first lived out of home, its so nice now to be able to enjoy a good coffee!!!
(all photographs taken by me)

So thats it :) i hope you enjoyed my top 10 loves at the moment... its constantly changing...although reading back on my ten there seems to be a pattern of food in there hahaha :) and thankyou for taking the time to read through it all..theres quite a bit there haha... Hope your all having a fabulous Monday!!!

Your photography is absolutely stunning and gorgeous! I looove the realism and the humor of the last photo. I know that it was probably staged, but I seriously look EXACTLY like that in the morning! haha!

you take such interesting photographs. I love how each of them have such a different feel.

I also feel very connected to nature. I think taking time out to just exist in it is brilliant!

ferrero = delish.

That last pic is so hilariously great, and I think many of us would look similar prior to morning caffeine.

Oh dear, I can definitely relate to that last item! As bad as it may be for me, I still can't give up my caffeine. And Sinatra always puts me in a good mood. I've been embarrassed a few too many times crooning along with him in the car...totally worth it. ;)
