Exciting news....

And no, I'm not pregnant! 
(seems to be the first thing that has come into peoples minds!)

I have just found out that ive been selected as the Australian member for an international team of 8 Type 1 diabetics to climb mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania (yes, Africa!!!) this August....thats in 6 months!!! 
I was contacted by the French organisers last week after they'd been told about the trek i organised to Everest base camp 
in Nepal a few years ago (some photos here if you are interested!). It's all been a bit of a whirlwind and still hasn't quite sunken in yet! 
I, of course accepted, & am pretty darn excited!

We will be testing our blood at altitude & being filmed by a French documentary crew, with the aim of the trip being to show other Diabetics, or indeed other people with chronic illnesses, that you don't need to let it hold you back from great adventures & achievements in life!

Anyway, stay tuned! Im off to the gym - training starts today!

KikiK 'My Receipts' folder!

Ok, so i know this is a bit of a nerdy one (& excuse the bad i phone photos!), but I'm one of those uber organised types.
I bought this 2 years ago & have to say its been one of the best ways to organise all my receipts & expenses! 

Its divided into months

And each month has an envelope for you to store your receipts & a space to write the details for each receipt on the front. 
I tend to put them in once a month or so, it makes it so much easier to reconcile at the end of the year.
AND you don't end up with mountains of receipts all over the place each July!

Perfect day for it!

I am really embracing clean eating at the moment.
This is the kind of breakfast you will find me eating a few times a week!
Burgen seeds bread, a poached egg or 2 & some wilted kale or baby spinach with mushrooms.
So nutritious & fills you up for hours :)

I have to say her bridesmaids dresses (Rachel Gilbert of course!) are to die for!

Cool Edies & the Style Lab @ Life Instyle

Im really looking forward to checking out the Style Lab at this years Life Instyle event!

I didn't make it last year, as it was the week before my wedding & things were a bit hectic.
Plus, i had a bad feeling i would see all kinds of cool things i wanted to use at the wedding & my DIY needed to be reined in!

If the image below isn't enough to get your heart racing (hello, i am so obsessed with those lights from Fromage la Rue!), heres a bit more about what you can expect. 'Cool Edies' are styling duo Jane Frosh & Lucy Weight. In 2012 Cool Edies was formed as a one stop styling shop for interiors, food, lifestyle, events & fashion. The Style lab will be a dynamic series of scenes, designed & created each morning by Cool Eddies using exhibitor products; a bit like a look into their studio & the styling of photo shoot.

Life Instyle - 21st-24th February at the Royal Hall of Industries & Hordern Pavilion, Moore Park.

Byron Bay - Eats

Im back from a week in Byron Bay with Ben spent relaxing & spending time in the sun, sea &.... well, doing a lot of eating! 
I was so appreciative of all the blog & instagram friends who sent me suggestions of shops to see & places to eat. 
We did find it rather expensive to eat out every meal, next time we will be finding somewhere to stay that has a kitchen!
Seeing as we sampled almost every place in town, I thought id share our favourites with you!

Definitely our favourite. We were in Byron for 7 days & ate here 6 times (& a lot of the time when we were eating elsewhere, we thinking we should have just gone here). The service is friendly & fast, the food is fantastic, simple & fresh, unlike most other places we found, you get a decent serving for what you pay! Breakfasts were amazing & the salads at lunch enormous (see below!)

A bit out of town, on a corner up the top of a hill in a residential area.
Great coffee, yummy house made granola with yogurt & acai bowls for breakfast, & fab salads & burgers for lunch.
It was a good stop off on our way to hike to the lighthouse {we walked around the headlands on the bush path - loved it}.

Id come just to stare at this wall created by Jai of Ahoy Trader!
Only recently opened, and always chic a block full! We loved the deluxe burritos & the snapper ceviche.
Come for happy hour to take advantage of the $10 margaritas!
You could also try their other restaurant Asia Joes, in the lane behind the Beach Hotel - we went here twice.
Great stirfrys & curries, $1.50 corkage for wine & free for beer! A good cheap & cheerful!

Love love loved this place! We went here for my birthday dinner.
Tapas style menu & fantastic cocktails. 
Not many places you go to & drool over every bite of every dish. 
Don't miss the soft shell crab sliders, salad, slow cooked beef cheeks & catalan bread
{we had the coca con higo you can see on the menu below}
Not the cheapest meal, but a must do if your in Byron!

HARVEST {Newrybar - about a 20min drive}
Tiny little town just off the Pacific highway, about 5 mins sough of Bangalow.
Harvest grows a lot of their own produce on site or on their farm close by & the Goats cheese terrine i had was to die for!
They also have a Deli with some pretty special produce next door.

Others we loved were dinner at Targa, sushi at O-Sushi & lunch at Belongil Bistro.
