Internet world, I must apologize. I have been slack in the blogging department of my life, and completely pushed aside my blogging resolutions for 2014. *slaps self on the hand*

Sometimes we get into a slump, and to quote the words of Dr Seus, 'Unslumping yourself is not easily done'.

For the past few weeks, I have wandered into a slump, and as I obviously don't carry a map book and there is no data signal for my cellphone in this particular slump, I got lost. And stuck. Don't fret though, as I managed to see past the hazy horizon of my slump, and catch a glimpse of what may lie ahead.

I wanted to write this post, to tell you all to get out of your slumps, or at least make a conscious effort too. Sometimes we can get stuck, and sometimes we can wallow in self pity and genuinely think that NOBODY understands or has been through this themselves. Instead of drifting into that negative zone, try jumping into the positive zone, and remember that everything happens for a reason. Yes, you may not know the reason straight away, but I can guarantee you will find a reason one day.

So drag yourself out of bed, eat something nice and healthy, and get on with your day. Make a plan, a to do list or whatever floats your boat. But get something underway, and have something to look forward.

Over and out.

Christmas, alcohol and future plans!

I dont know about you guys but the fact that we are 11 days into 2014 scares me slightly! We are speeding ahead, and if you blink you may get left behind! 

Christmas was a few weeks ago now, but here are some snaps of my day! 

Foooooooooooooooood, so much food. omnomnomnom

Hammock selfies. Sah good. 

Compulsory alcohol consumption. 

My sister and her priorities. 

Arts and crafts! 

Santa came and left his load all around the tree! *cries with laughter at own crappy joke*

Exhausted, twas a long day

Princess Alexandra and her double present!

Now for the exciting part! 

About a million and one years ago, when my sister and I were just kids, we created a tradition. And I am proud to say it is still around today! 

The spoilt child audit - to be completed once all Christmas presents are opened and all on your bed. 

Rules - Each item must be photographed, whether this is one group photo or individually. All items must be within the frame and visible. 

If you cannot document via photos, then a list will do.
  ~side note, I still have my spoilt child audit list from when I was 7~ 

So internet lovers, I am telling you about this for two reasons. 

1. To let you know about all of the reviews that are happening! 
2. I kind of want to make this a thing, let me know if you do this with your family too!
Spoilt child audit '13' 

Get exited folks! Look at all the goodness to review in that photo! We have lush products, perfumes, makeup, alcohol, shower goodies and all the goodness and joy!

Please note, chocolate will not be reviewed as it has been eaten.

So get excited, let people know and stay tuned! 

Lots of love

Bucket list '2014'

I am officially ageing. I didn’t quite realise this until my birthday a few days ago. I turned 21 *hurrah!* and yet I went to bed at 10pm that evening. And it was a Friday. Don’t judge me folks! Some people might call this lazy, others might call it mature.

My sister and I call ourselves the most extroverted introverts, we love LOVE love to socialise and go out. But we also love LOVE love to spend time by ourselves and hibernate. It’s a catch 22, stuck between a rock and a hard place. Socialise or sleep. 94.5% of the time sleep wins. 

So this year I have decided to challenge myself, I want to push my boundaries, throw myself out of my comfort zone and create some crazy memories.

I, Jessica Gibson, challenge, you, Jessica Robyn Gibson, to complete a list of 21 insane, crazy, adrenlin filled challenges.


Bucket list ‘2014’

  1. Skydive at a higher level than my first
  2. A bungee jump (This scares the bejeezus out of me, how can I willing do a skydive, but not jump off a bridge?!)
  3. White water rafting
  4. Waitomo caving trip
  5. A wine tour! (I have never been on one!) 
  6. Ziplining trip on Waiheke Island!
  7. Horseback riding (on a beach, with violins playing in the background)
  8. A fishing trip! (Sah easy to do considering NZ is the fishing place to be)
  9. Zorb and free fall thingy ma jig in Rotovegas
  10. Expolore my own country and roadtrip 

I need more ideas though!

Challenge me to do something insane!
