Body Painting class

So my bucket list has me wanting to be body painted.  When the local venue offered a class on body painting, I jumped at the chance.  I didn’t have any idea what would happen – in the end, there were three models, suffering in the large warehouse in winter, and a known artist (of make …

A new 12 in 2

I’m feeling a little stuck in a rut, so I thought I might set some ‘fun’ goals to help me look forward to things that are out of the ordinary.  I started with my Bucket List. So here’s what I’d like to try and enjoy in the next two years (the numbers below are from …

Lists are my saviour

So, the last three days have been better.  And I attribute it to my list/check sheet.  Instead of buying a prettier product from a stationary store like Kikki K, I DIY’ed. Basically, each morning, I want to exercise, meditate and (ideally) write down my day’s goals.  Then in the evening, I want to floss (and …

Zorbing in Phuket – 12 in 2 list

At long last, after posting about my 12 in 2 goals here, here and here, and then finding out that the Gold Coast, QLD, Australia, closed down their zorbing, this looked like a goals I might just never get done! Alas, Phuket has what they call ‘Roller Ball’ which is zorbing – putting fully grown …

Trying new stuff – Aerial Yoga

So this weekend, I did something ‘cool’ that I didn’t even know existed, so it couldn’t even be on a bucket list!  It was sky yoga: It’s a small studio in the centre of the grungiest part of Sydney, near Central station. To get to the ‘Sky Lab’ you go past a graffiti wall – …

To do?

  I’m a zombie of late – wake, work, repeat.  I mean, there’s this time between 6-9pm or so, but unlike times gone by, I just want to do something mindless, like watch a TV show, or comment on blogs.  I don’t want to do things that I know I might find rewarding in the …

Japan packing

There’s nothing I enjoy more than some photos collages, and doing outfits ensures I pack enough. And I can easily get up and get dressed. If you’re bored (already) can play ‘spot the repeat picture’ :p These don’t include the ‘plane’ outfit. The plane will introduce jeans, a cotton sweater, a scarf, my trench… and …

Half marathon – 12 in 2 list

Hot on the heels of my harbour bridge climb last Friday, yesterday, Sunday 6th July, I did the Gold Coast Half Marathon. Talk about a busy month – between the BF cashing in his skydive, to me climbing the bridge (and having a fancy dinner), then the half marathon, and in less than a week, …

Harbour Bridge Climb – 12 in 2 list

I finally did it! For a long time I’ve wanted to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge, so I made it one of my 12 in 2 goals (12 things I wanted to achieve in two years). I have an incredibly generous boyfriend who took the hints… and bought me a voucher for my birthday to …
