the big wet

Ex Tropical Cyclone Oswald hit Bundaberg a few days ago, there were also mini Tornadoes that hit north Queensland, all this has created wild weather conditions throughout S.E. Queensland. I went out for a walk yesterday afternoon to check out the damage down the end of the estate where we live, and this morning went out again on my local walking track. Here are a few pictures, the carnage of what strong winds and rain can create.

This was almost wrapped around the tree.

Half of a tinny.

Such a beautiful clear morning, so very different from the days before.

This didn't do much good!

Boats washed up all over the place.

The footpath, completely covered in debris from the bay, the waters must have risen so high.

Our local park, all shade sails torn off.

There are so many trees just ripped out by the roots everywhere, some very very large ones too.

This is the normally pristine footpath that I walk along, completely covered in mountains of seaweed.

sex and the city party

This was my 35th Birthday. I had a girls only Sex and the City Themed Party with Cosmo's on tap. Everyone was asked to wear Pink, Black or White. It was a fabulous night.

My gorgeous nieces handing out nibbles :-)

my bikini shoot

About 6-7 months ago I decided to start eating a bit healthier and exercising more and I noticed I was getting results quite fast. I think I lost around 8 kilo's, which is a fair bit on my 160cm frame. I had always wanted to have a photo shoot done,  I love dressing up and coordinating outfits and I am know to like to have a pose. ;-) Anyway, I thought this was a good as time as any, as I had lost some weight and just had my 37th birthday and I am not getting any younger and so I did it. I was so happy with how the pictures turned out. I had my makeup done by a wonderful makeup artist Michelle West and the photographer Nikki Brown was fantastic. She made me feel totally comfortable and really enjoy myself. I would totally recommend both these women, they are fabulous at what they do. So here are some of the photos.

This was my favourite from the shoot.
