Lets go to the beach, beach, lets go get away

Seasons Greetings! I hope everyone has had a wonderful silly season filled with never ending bowls of pudding and overflowing glasses of champagne. Things have been a tad quiet round these traps lately due to a pesky blog glitch. After weeks of shaking my little fists at the computer screen things are finally sorted and I can get back to sharing a plethora of summery posts. It's a Christmas Miracle!

These photographs were taken on South Cronulla Beach a few weeks back. It was a pretty dismal day so I foolishly neglected my stringent sunscreen application routine and lounged around for countless hours in the pristine sand. Sadly the Australian sun pulled the wool over my eyes once more and I arrived home looking less like a lady and more like a lobster... I like to think that the novelty sized hibiscus adorning my bob provided some shade as my face was left relatively unsinged by the harmful rays. Suffice to say I'll be lathering myself religiously with SPF+ 50 before any future seaside excursions!

  1. Simply lovely Miss Lou. Good to see old Cronulla too! Like your Pearly compact! Looking forward to your adventures through 2014.

  2. Happy New Year Katie-Louise! I must say that I have also suffered the consequences of breaking the cardinal rule of reapplying sunscreen after a day by the seaside (lobster lady ahoy!) However, what a perfect opportunity to get some extra Vitamin D into my system!
