THIS IS ME

jeskaalee

This is me: I'm not perfect, there is no such thing.

I'm the kind of woman who when I love, I love big. I put my whole heart into things and I care a whole freakin’ lot. Some people think this is naïve and dangerous and some think it's admirable and beautiful. That's just what they think. The most important thing is being happy with who I am and what I stand for.

This year has been full of so many amazing things it makes me so happy to think back on all the special memories I've been able to make and I am so fucking grateful to have made them with some amazing humans. Some days I wonder how I got so lucky to have the people in my life who love, care and support me through so many things.

It hasn't been all love, special moments and happiness. I have had some fucking shitty moments too. Nights where I lay awake wondering if I'll ever be able to stop the hurt and moments where I've realized I'll never be able to hug someone ever again. They were shit moments but they were just moments.

But that's life, it's all just moments. 

Through all of the things I've been through this year I have never stopped learning. I've never stopped believing in myself. I've never stopped loving others and myself. I've learnt that holding in how I feel is never heathy. I've pushed myself to try new things. When I've fucked up I've said sorry. I've learnt that I may not always say the right thing but my heart is always in the right place. I've learnt that I can't please everybody. I've learnt that compromise is essential. I’ve learnt to judge less and show more compassion. I've learnt to stand up for myself and never to settle for mediocre. When I've made a mistake I've tried my best to make things right. I haven't always gotten what I wanted but I've made the most of what I do have. I've learnt to be dependent on myself to pick myself up but I've also learnt it's okay to ask for support.

I am forever grateful for the good days and the bad days. They taught me to love not only the good but the not so good things which were redirecting me. Just remember you are imperfectly perfect and you should always embrace every moment.

THE BEST JEANS

"IN THE RIGHT JEANS A GIRL CAN CONQUER THE WORLD".

I feel like as women we are always on the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans and sometimes it can be a tricky job! There are so many bloody options out there and that it can make it quite a tedious job to tackle. The decision making process after trying on numerous styles that just don’t fit right or make you look well a bit shitty have led me to give up trying at times.

I know these jeans I have found from Glassons won’t be for all of us as we all love a different kind of fit, style, colour, no rips, rips so on and so forth. But I still wanted to share these goodies as I love them a whole a lot. I have now worn them a good few days in a row.. sorry not sorry but I wear them to death.

They are the kind of jean that fit your butt really nicely but not too tightly. You knows those ones that are so tight that you struggle to sit down comfortably.. no one wants to do the awks lay down/sit down to just get into a seat.. as funny as it is to watch. These bad boys also fit nice and loosely from the knee down with just the right amount of distressed bits that it doesn’t look like you’ve been attacked by a wild animal.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR

Kellie & Dave's Garden Wedding

I attended my cousins beautiful wedding at Tamborine Gardens on Saturday April 7th 2013. The day was overcast and cold up in the mountains, but it was warm with love & smiles celebrating the two love birds. 
 The ceremony was in a small stunning chapel filled with family, friends and loved ones.  After the ceremony we got snapped in a few photos then headed off for drinks and canapés. The meals were to die for and dessert was chocolate cake, my favorite! The night was full of fun, laughs and dancing and to end the night on a buzz i caught the bouquet. 
 I wore this simple pastel pink dress from Dissh with soft cream assesories and soft curls. I opted for neutral browns for makeup. I also just had my hair chopped by the lovely Kasey Smallwood at Studio 9 on Chevron Island and I am in love with it!  -
