A Proud Mummy Moment – School Formal 2013

Had a very proud mummy moment on Friday, as Miss WW had her year 12 school formal!

Months of planning and preparation go into the formal, there is dress hunting, shoe shopping, finding a matching clutch, picking a hair style, oh and the make-up! So many decisions for one night, but such an important one and fortunately she had a wonderful night and I was just so happy for her.

One of my favourite shots of the night, Miss WW doing a little floor glam!

I remember the excitement of my school formal, and I was hoping that Miss WW would have the same fun and happy memories, and after a very long night with no sleep, she came home a very tired but happy girl, who enjoyed her night to the fullest!

She has become a beautiful young women, that I am truly proud to call my daughter! Love you xxxx

Cinderella – A Night Of Glamour, Glitz And Sparkle



Bring on the ballet season………….

I have always loved going to the ballet since I was a little girl, and really love the classics, so last night, thanks to my daughter, I was treated to a wonderful night at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, as a birthday present.

The Ballet Theatre of Queensland, showcases the young ballet talent of our state and they should all be so proud of their efforts.

The tickets were only $40 each and compared to the Australian Ballet, that is a real bargain. I was not expecting such a lavish production with absolutely gorgeous costumes and sets. What a wonderful experience, especially for the young performers to be able to be involved in such a superb production. I was so impressed with the 3 Ugly Step Sisters, they not only danced beautifully, they acted their parts so well, keeping us giggling away.

A wonderful start to the year, with a night full of sparkle, sequins, bling and pointe shoes, LOVE IT!

If you can find time to see this production that is only on for a short season, it is SO worth it!
