This was the ring I ALWAYS wanted ever since spotting it ages ago at Wallace Bishop. I fell in love with it, and was so ecstatic when the ring box opened!

Celebatory Proposal Dinner at my favourite restaurant Aria @ Eagle St Pier. Ps. They were SO sweet and gave us complementary petite fours and wine, as well as plenty of congratulations etc.

As you can imagine I am so over the moon and extremely happy that the man I love the most has finally asked me. But there’s also a hell of a lot of thoughts running round this anxiety-stricken head of mind, so I’m sharing them…

Um, I’m going to be Mrs $#$^^&@!#. Surreal.

Must go on wedding diet asap hahahah, nah but I really want to be feel and look my best.

I have so much time…a year and a half will draaaaggggggg.

How do I ask my bridesmaids? And when? And will they say yes? Will it be too hard with a couple of girls living a plane trip away?

holy crap- cannot stop looking at my ring.

I feel super precious about wearing the ring when washing my hands, showering and washing up- so I take it off. Note to self: buy several little bowls to put round the house to hold the ring.

How to save for wedding. And an appropriate budget?

Engagement party or no engagement party?

I want to get professional engagement photos!

Changing my name on everything is gonna suck.

Must brainstorm new signature (perhaps I’m getting ahead of myself ha)

Do I mention anything on the sly to my bridesmaids before I officially ask them?

And I haven’t even really started brainstorming any finer details wedding wise…I mean I have my preferences but have done no research or anything. I don’t want to do too much too soon…anyways there’s plenty to work out before that stage.

  • Are you a wedding lover like me, or could you not care less? Or perhaps, do you really detest them?

[A Quick Recap] Filex & Les Mills Super Workshop

hello!

Here’s my recap of Filex, AKA: The Australian Health & Fitness Expo, and the Les Mills Super Saturday & Sunday #lmapsuper

I had an absolutely amazing weekend and loved every second of it. Check out what I got up to-

A quick breakfast post 5:55am flight- yum yum. Ps. Butter on wholemeal toast- rocks. I didnt need every slice of toast but couldn’t help taking a few extra bites ;)

We arrived at our hotel- which was so amaze. The Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens blew our expectations out of the water- everyone was super sweet and helpful, and the room was flashy ;) The huge king size bed felt lush.

The amazing Lisa Osbourne (creative director for BS & head program director for BA)

As soon as we got to Melbourne and checked in, I scooted off to the BodyStep class at the convention centre (where I saw my mentor), with all the amazing International & LMAP Presenters. I’m such a Les Mills groupie that I just had to get photos. Oh and Les Mills 96 is SO good.

Then it was CXWORX time and the CX instructors are so inspirational- it’s a tough release!

Then it was time to check out the Australian Fitness & Health Expo- I was pretty much in heaven ;)

What a find! Thanks Well, Naturally. There Chocolate Orange is also to die for and reminds me so much of Jaffas (and I’m not typically an orange + choc fan!)

Totally the most indulgent tasting protein bars- Titan bars. Whilst I probably wouldn’t treat them as an everyday snack- they’d be a perfect dessert substitute ;) My favourite is the Vanilla Creme- and the chocolate is a close second. Vanilla creme= snickers, chocolate= mars bar. Surprisingly there was a pb one also but it was okay.

I spotted my friends from Slim Secrets. Totally taste tested more than a couple of times.

Then the bf had a hover challenge hahah!

The actual best vending machine

After lots of inspiration and tastings we headed back to the room, where someone needed a 2 hr nap…

After his nap it was dinner time…

things got hot

and I got stuffed to the brim with this amazing and HUGE calzone filled with ham, tomatoes, mushrooms and cheese…oh and cheese. Did I say cheese?

IMG_7859

After dinner we needed to walk it off so we went for a little exploration through the Melbourne Crowne Casino and can I just say this place is amazing. There was like water fountains and all these great things.

After a huge sleep we went to the Victoria St Markets where I got a tasty Egg, Mushroom and Spinach tart, which went unphotographed. This fueled me up for a BodyAttack class which was the bees knees. I swear this is the reason I flied to Melbourne- just for these classes.

It was such an amazing weekend and I can’t wait to go back again next year.

Standout Moments:

  • Best eat(s) at Filex: Well, Naturally choccies & protein bars, & Titan Protein Bars
  • Fave moment: Doing the BodyStep & BodyAttack classes
  • Biggest Inspiration: Lisa Osbourne & this amazing lean male doing Crossfit that would do pull ups and all these amazing things on the bars that made it look crazy easy.
  • Greatest challenge: Getting up at 4:45am…wah ha.
  • Best meal: The Calzone from an Italian Restaurant.
  • Biggest annoyance: a bf who can’t keep up haha and needs naps OR not being able to find a good froyo place- so someone had to go without :(

What is your favourite type of expo?
