In January I started doing a monthly highlight series. I love the concept of looking over the month & picking out all the things that made you happy!! So even though I have been super busy & this one is coming super late this month I still wanted to combine my last two months & get this post up for you to tell about all the great things that have happened in the past two months! (Be forewarned this is going to be a long one so grab yourself a cuppa!)
Seeing an old friend
A few years ago one of my best friends moved away to train to become a superstar chef. This girl is like a sister to me but over the years we seemed to have drifted & have not seen much of each other. This month I got the chance to meet up with her & have a short little catch up!! It wasnt for very long, way too short in fact but I definitely dont want that much time to pass again before we meet up again!
Besties having a baby
This month two of my very good friends gave birth to the most beautiful baby girl!! Shes so tiny & beautiful! She is also the first baby I have held in my adult years! So fragile, I was terrified I was going to drop her!! Well done guys!!
Creating my Website
This month I started the process of creating my website "BeautyLaLinda.com" It is not live yet & wont be for a while as I want to make it perfect before I launch it! But it is really exciting & cool to start the process!!!
Other little highlights
- Picking up Lion King Colouring Book!!
- Meeting & chatting with my new boss that I will be working with from March on...
- Getting accommodation sorted for the march move & making plans
- Chats with my mam (really going to miss the parents when I move)
During the month of march I made the big move & honey I aint in the Emerald City any more! No this is definitely Kansas! It was a massive culture shock to say the least & if I am honest it has taken me longer than expected to get into the swing of things & get used to the pace of life down here! However I do love it! It was a big change but definitely needed. The area is just simply beautiful. The views are nothing short of spectacular. I honestly feel almost like I moved country. I do miss the city but you just simply do not get these views & surroundings in a city! (None of these pictures have been filtered or edited!)
One of the best things about the area that I now live in is the people. They are so nice, so welcoming & so much fun to party with! I have only been down here 6 six weeks almost & in that time I have met so many cool people! People I know will become really good friends over the next coming months! They had really no reason to be as nice as they are & I think thats pretty awesome!
On the Road!
So, as many of you might already know I learned to drive about 2 years ago..... not because I had to. I had no need to learn. Im a city girl! But I really wanted to. Although I loved the idea of having a car & really enjoy driving, I had no real need to so nothing really pushed me to do so. That all changed the minute I moved. You cannot survive in my area without a car. The minute I leave my house I have a half an hour walk to the nearest shop or work. Within 3 weeks I had the car sorted, Taxed, Insured, NCTd.. The whole kit & kaboodole! I love it! Its my little baby! Woop Woop! (My little sheep friend there was a gift from 2 very good friends & his name is Simon)
Since I have been down here I have been horse riding twice & it is something I want to keep up! I love it so much & the area I have moved to have many equestrian centers! Its so much fun! I have be doing beach & mountain trails!! #happiness
I am definitely not 100% settled here or figured a proper routine (If that was the case would have seen many posts from me by now) I just havent seemed to sort out the organisation of fitting everything in yet! But I will! We are getting there.... even if its taking a while... You guys are great though for sticking with me. You can expect regular posting resuming shortly!!
I have also achieved some of my goals for 2016!
- Find a nice place to live #check
- Getting a car sorted #check
- Getting healthier #check (my diet has been mainly seafood & healthy goodness since I moved)

Please leave me a comment of some of your recent highlights! I would love to hear them!!
