Back Yard Days

June 4th, 2012 by Selise

    I (I say I, really it was The Man) took these shots a little while back. Before my birthday even.     A little bit of fun in the back yard.     I bought these jeans specially for our trip to Hayman Island.     I just loved the Teddy Girl style of them. And the fact they were 2 sizes smaller than I usually wear. Could be the whole “What Up, Size?” factor (If you missed that post, click here to read it now), or it

Seeing Is Believing

May 28th, 2012 by Selise

  This was one of those outfits that look much better in person. 2 dimensions just can’t do it justice.     I dubbed it my “Flashdance Meets 80’s LA Mystic” look. But you’d probably have to be a mystic to guess why from these pictures. In person I’m sure you would snap your fingers and say, “Oh! Of course!”     That is, if you’re the kind to snap your fingers. And my mystic powers are saying you…aren’t? Are! Yes, of course, that’s what I meant to say. Sunglasses:

My Life In This Coat

May 25th, 2012 by Selise

Guys? I want this coat. No, no, I need this coat. Actually, to be honest, I want to need this coat. I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess every, oh I dunno, 10 or 11 days I ask The Man why we don’t live in Seattle. Or Tasmania. Or at least Melbourne. Somewhere cold. Because Queensland? Not cold. Hot? Sure. We’ve got that in spades. But being one who prefers to shiver rather than sweat, this is not exactly a positive. If we lived somewhere cold? I’d get

The Edge Of The World

May 23rd, 2012 by Selise

  I think these outfit pictures win the prize for “Most Remote Location”. (Wanna see the winner for “Highest Location”? Click here.)   I believe that’s Hook Island in the background A little place called Langford Spit, 2 nautical miles south of Hayman Island.   If you look out to the East you’ll see nothing for miles until you hit Vanuatu. Pretty sure you can’t see Vanuatu from Langford Spit with the naked eye. At least, I definitely couldn’t. But then I find it hard to read the scoreboard when

Not So Secret Garden

May 21st, 2012 by Selise

  Part of the awesomeness of Hayman Island was wandering around, exploring the grounds.     In the few hours between breakfast finishing up and the bars opening (yep, it was a hard week of living) The Man and I took to meandering around the grounds.     Everything was accessible. Just when you thought you’d stumbled into somewhere you shouldn’t be, one of the staff would walk by, smile and say hello. Pretty sure if I wasn’t supposed to see the back of the laundry room they’d have said

My Week At A Five Star Resort

May 16th, 2012 by Selise

  OK, are you ready? Ready to get the inside scoop on my week long stay at Australia’s most awarded five-star resort? I’m going to warn you now. These photos may evoke feelings of extreme longing. In fact, I’m experiencing a little myself. I’ll skip the ones of us living it up on the luxury launch that sped us to the private island. Oh, and the ones of me in an extravagant bubble bath enjoying our complimentary bottle of wine (note: tasteful, not at all revealing pictures) (second note: The

And This Is How We Party

May 14th, 2012 by Selise

  I’ve got a bit of a tradition going. Every year I hit up a Mexican restaurant for my birthday shenanigans. I’m not gonna say the margaritas don’t have something to do with it because I have no reason to lie to you. So hey, lemme show you what I wore and then we can get down to some action shots (Shots of the photographic kind. Not the tequila kind. Though trust me, there were plenty of those).     I’m gonna say 3 words: Female. John. Bender. I know,

It’s My Party & I’ll Wear Flannel If I Want To

May 8th, 2012 by Selise

  It’s been a little quiet around here lately, huh? Wanna know what I’ve been doing?     Rocking it birthday style.     Yep, it was my birthday at the end of last month and to celebrate The Man and I took off to a fancy resort on a privately owned island up at The Great Barrier Reef for a week. Lemme tell you, I could get used to that kind of living!     These pictures are from my actual birthday. It’s my party and I’ll wear flannel

Shooting The Breeze . . . And Clay Pigeons

April 25th, 2012 by Selise

We hit up the shooting range a couple of weeks back. I’d never been before. But it turns out I’m not too shabby with the ol’ shotgun. I showed the boys up and impressed the old guys so much they invited me back for “Ladies Day”. And you know what? I might just go. I think what I’m most excited about though is that I’ve finally shown an aptitude in some sort of sport! That’s right, shooting is a sport and by golly you best believe I’ll argue the point.
