An absence explained

Hi all, I just wanted to 'log on' and explain where I've disappeared to!
I haven't blogged for a while due to time constraints. I've been travelling, working, and also my jewellery line, Shh By Sadie, keeps surprising me with how popular it's becoming.
Behind the scenes shot of a magazine shoot my jewellery was used in - going to print in October!! :)

I hope to be back to blogging at some point in the near future, but until then, for those of you who Tweet or Instagram, please look me up there...I'd love to keep in touch with you all!!

Shh By Sadie on Once'It

Hi all, I MADE IT HOME! Yay! I don't recommend these 37 hour journeys to anyone. You get on the plane fresh as a daisy and disembark looking like a hobo! It's good to be home though.

I'm just writing a quick post today to say I WILL be blogging from Wales. AND my Shh By Sadie jewellery is for sale on 'invite only' site Once'It tomorrow!! A limited number of pieces will be for sale at discounted prices. This is one of the things that kept me frantically busy last week before I left NZ.

To access the sale, use this link (and feel free to share it!)
How is your week going?

The end of a weekend in Noosa (and the lime blazer again!)

Hi all! Well you all had a peek of the lime blazer that I bought in Brisbane. I love it THAT much that I had to wear it out again on our last night in Noosa. :)

We went for a fantastic meal (and cocktails!) at bistro c, which was right on the beach. Fun!

My new lime blazer - you can't really see much else of the outfit in these pics so I wont bother listing them
Blazer, Dissh.

I wore my extensions again....
In the evening they blend pretty well. I've not worn them in daylight yet!

Before dinner we took a stroll to the backpackers that I'd stayed in last time. We didn't go in as I'm pretty sure we'd have looked out of place!
This was where we ate!
Right on the beach!

We had a lovely meal - go to bistro c if you're ever in Noosa!
Here's a sneak peek of one of the pairs of earrings I bought in Brisbane.
Skull earrings, Lovisa; Sunglasses, O'Neill.

And before we knew it it was time to head back to the airport. BOO!

Noosa Sunshine Day One

Hi all, so yesterday I showed you what we got up to in in Brisbane. Noosa was a totally different experience - relaxing on the beach, reading and swimming.

We stayed at the Sheraton in Noosa
And pretty much had the pool to ourselves!

The bf is actually addicted to surfing.

We shared a jug of Margaritas - amazing!!

Exploring Brisbane

Hi all. I am catching up with posts on my lunch break. I have three days left in work before I go to Wales for three weeks, and as you can imagine, I have a list of things to do as long as my arm! And having a broken laptop doesn't help!

A couple of weeks ago the bf and I popped off to Australia for a long weekend. We spent two nights in Brisbane and two nights in Noosa.

Here's what we got up to in Brisbane....

My suitcase had been neglected for a month!
As we fly so often we are gold Air NZ members and get to use the perks of the lounge - free bubbles and mags in this case!
Brisbane at night

Cocktails at a Turkish restaurant
This was a man-made beach in the city! Amazing!
I struggled to get a decent photo of the city hall...

The bf was a bit more determined than I was!

We hit the shops hard!

I really wanted this dress but it was too small. I'm gonna hunt it down online or just pick up a skirt and top and make my own version!
My goodies! I *heart* Aussie shops!
We went for Friday night drinks with my friend and her boss who were in Brisbane that weekend for business.
I wore my NEW LIME blazer, earrings and dress!
Cocktails on the riverfront :)
Brisbane was great. It rained all day on the Friday (our typical luck!!) but we spent most of the day in the shops so didn't mind too much ;)

Have you ever been to Brisbane?
