Snowy the Samoyed

Sunday, 22 January 2017

On June 23rd, we welcomed this little fluff ball into our home and into our family. She came to us at the age of 7 weeks. As white as snow and as fluffy and cotton balls.

We fell in love with her instantly. She has made our family complete and she brings us so much joy! Snowy our Samoyed was born on May 11th 2016 and is currently 9 months old. We can't wait to throw her a big doggie birthday party! 

We were first introduced to this breed when we happened to see a man with 3 grown Samoyeds taking a walk through the city streets. Surrounded by people of all ages trying to pet the dogs, my sisters and I were drawn to the beauty of the Samoyeds. They were absolutely beautiful creatures. 

After doing research and finding breeders that had available puppies in our area... we finally found a breeder whom we met and was absolutely lovely. She gave us a lot of helpful information and told us to contact her if we were ever having trouble. She has Samoyeds of her own and the love and affection she has for them is so evident. 

Snowy loves cuddles and she absolutely loves playing chase. She's full of energy and she LOVES eating! From dog food all the way to watermelon, strawberries, blueberries... 
If you ever have food with you, she will love you forever! We spoil her with toys and her favourite is Mr Monkey. Unfortunately... Mr Monkey is in the infirmary, suffering from a broken arm. Snowy loves being carried! It was so much easier when she only weighed 3kg... now she's 4 times heavier. A solid 13kg (last time we checked) is a serious arm work out for whoever dares to carry her! 

She loves kisses! Especially on the lips! So boys... beware. 
She loves people and would greet you with her wagging tail and continuous "hellos" until you pat her.

Adventures of 2016

WOW! What a year it has been! 2016 has been an incredibly, amazing and fun-filled year with many memories made. It felt like 2016 flew by so quickly but at the same time there was so many exciting things that happened... all flowing one after the other. 

As I select my favourite memories and highlights of 2016, it'll be nice to reflect on how I've grown through a lot of the battles and challenges that surfaced during the year. What's life without some challenges. It's good to grow and constantly seek to continue growing. We will never stop growing and learning. That's the beauty of it. We can never ever get to a final point on this Earth. 

2016 was definitely an incredible journey... allowing myself to take risks, to do things I've never done before and to push pass my comfortable and to learn to step into uncomfortable situations in order to grow myself. God has constantly surprised me in many ways. Beginning of the year I learnt to surf. That was an incredible experience. Allowing myself to be adventurous and to learn to not always stick to the things I'm comfortable with. 2016 blessed me with opportunities for friendships to be created and for people I didn't know would hold so much importance to be woven into my life. From Hillsong Conference to road trips and camps... friendships were made and grown. 
From all the adventure to even learning more about myself and developing my skills, and even embracing a new chapter in my life, through it all God was beside me. Memories of passing my Learners and taking another step closer to getting my full license, transitioning from high school to university, and also turning a year older. 

With each step I took as I continued to walk through the days, weeks and months of 2016... unforgettable memories begin to etch into my mind and heart. Moments that would be there when I need them to help me learn and move forward into 2017. 

The BEST is yet to come! Look forward onto 2017 with expectations that things will start to line up and fall into place because God is working things out behind the scene. We may not see what's in front of us... but He's working on it. He always is. And He does all this out of the shakeable love He has for us.

Forever Brunchin'

Ever since meeting my group of friends, and influenced by the hype of "hipster" cafes, I've discovered a world of brunch places from cute interiors all the way through to the edgy, modern aesthetics. All of which the food has been AMAZING, and an incredible journey of exploring different tastes. 

I'm so blessed to be living in Melbourne, and close to the CBD, where many brunch places are located. I have tried a few... but still have many more places to explore. Stagger Lee's, Top Paddock, Operator 25 are to name a few places. Can't wait to share with you my adventure on discovering my favourite Melbourne brunch places!

2017 is here! NEW YEAR, NEW ME! Am I right? HA! How many times have we heard that?? PLENTY. I've been wanting to change my style for a while. I've always admired a minimalistic kind of style, that holds a sense of maturity, femininity and a clean and put together look. In the few days of 2017 as I browsed around H&M, I laid eyes on the most beautiful vest coat. I FINALLY FOUND THE ONE!

I know I can create many many outfits with this new purchase of mine! Dressing it up, and dressing it down won't be too much of a problem either! I find it's so important to invest in items that you know you can style in many ways - casual or fancy, Summer and Winter. Although it is very lightweight, layering it in the chilly seasons will allow you to wear this whenever you want! 

But despite all the time you take into styling your outfit... the BEST accessory that goes with any outfit you wear is your SMILE! The way you present yourself - your stance, your walk, your behaviour also plays a part! Don't forget to always wear your smile. Although clothing can be copied, and remade over and over again in many different ways... there's something so much more unique that no one else can pull off except you. And that is your smile! 

WEAR it with CONFIDENCE! AND never forget Your Smile!
