I want to thank you for your patience with me lately; I’ve been promising to post regularly and keep up-to-date with my social media yet something always seems to happen.
This time, it hasn’t really been about me or my human family, but my furry family. My Furry Partner In Crime (FPIC for short) is sick. Cancer sick. I’ve been crushed since being told and have had to adjust how I spend my time as I’ve had to look after her and feed her every few hours. Even though she is a clingy little asshole, she’s my little asshole, and my days are 99% of the time spent around her. She is always near me when I plan and write my posts, take the photos, retake the photos because she’s either in it or a clump of her fur blows into the shot.
It’s been a bit of a challenge to get into a routine, but I think we’re almost there so next week I can get back to something of normality for the site… maybe a better normality with some actual content!
So please keep her in your thoughts, please share if you’ve been through something similar with your furry ones, and thank you for coming to see us every day
Massive amounts of love,
L & FPIC 🐾
Take me to Paris! Take me to fill my belly with French sweets, meats, butter, maybe even some wine. Take me to see what the locals do in this iconic city. We can do some of the token, touristy things, but let’s get lost and eat to almost insanity.
It’s been a time, let me tell you! As it says on the tin, we’re not moving again and while I am relieved we aren’t (two weeks down to going and we had no answer from the real estate!), I’m probably going to rant about some of the annoying things about renting. It might be more ~Australian rental issues~ but maybe you’ll enjoy it and identify with some of it.
Now to unpack all of my shit!

I’ve been slowly packing away stuff for our move in a month, at the same time wondering what to post for you all before we go on a mini-hiatus… and before I lose my mind.
While picking up some items from Priceline and Chemist Warehouse, I realised I’ve never shared some of my go-to, favourite drug store/pharmacy/chemist products!
I picked only one item from each brand to make it more interesting and apparently variety is the spice of life (can you just feel how tired I am?)!
I was going to address this in the last beauty misconceptions post but I didn’t want it to be a whole chapter. Instead, I thought I would address it individually from the others in its own post because the whole subject can be really confusing and there are multiple reasons you might break out.
The short answer to this question/statement is yes, a new skincare regime can break you out, but the reasons are a bit longer than a word…
Recently, a family member had celebrated their birthday at one of the Gold Coast’s most iconic institutions, Dracula’s Cabaret Show & Dinner. The cool-looking place that I’m sure the Addams or Munsters would have loved is sandwiched in between the newly jazzed up Pacific Fair shopping centre and The Star Gold Coast (formerly Conrad Jupiters Casino). Every local has driven past and every local has been to Dracula’s.
I had lived here most of my life here and never once been to Dracula’s. But now I have and thought I’d let you know a bit about it!
