I have been M.I.A lately - but not by choice I promise!
My job is crazy when I'm up north, but WOOOAAH when I am back for the week at a time there is no stopping!! My job needs me to be at my fittest and my healthiest, not only my body but mentally fit and healthy especially when working FIFO away from Friends and Family (and life).

My best friend from Adelaide has been harping on about a product called Isagenix - how amazing she is feeling and how her pole vaulting results have been soaring.  I had been feeling a little run down and sore from all the training I had been doing up north with taking daily group fitness classes and P.T sessions as well as my own personal training.  I was finding it hard to be constantly upbeat and ready to help anyone out with their fitness and wellbeing queries and worries. 

So I am day 3 on my Isagenix 30 day Presidents Pack and I couldn't be feeling better.  The pack comes with cleanse products (which I will be doing once a week - Monday will be my first so stay tuned!) and normal shake days which comes with snacks and vital nutrients. 
I thought I would have a play yesterday, and make a

Healthy Isagenix Brownie:


1 cup of liquid egg whites

3/4 cup of Isalean Creamy Dutch Chocolate

1/4 cup of cocoa

1/4 cup Melted sugar free chocolate

3 tbsp coconut flour

5 tbsp cottage cheese

1/2 tsp of baking soda

3 tbsp of natural organic peanut butter
1. Set oven to around 170 degrees
2. Melt chocolate with natural peanut butter over a low heat on the stove
3. Using an immersion blender, blend all the ingredients together. Bear in mind that what you want to end up with is a thick pancake-like batter. If your batter is too runny, add a tbsp more of coconut flour until it thickens. If it’s too thick, add an extra egg white or two.
4. Once your mixture is smooth and thick, yet pourable bake it in a small brownie pan for about 45 minutes to an hour, or until an inserted knife comes out clean.

A month away a girl will play

Sooooo I have been away for one whole month for work!  And the site I was at didn't have any WIFI (the nerve?).  I guess sometimes you take things for granted, and internet is definitely one of those things. 
While I was away I got a lovely little surprise from Spin Dizzy Fall that I had won from her birthday competition - a bracelet surprise from Surreal jewellery.  I chose a silver charm bangle that has a 'T' for Tahnee on it, and it is definitely going to be a staple piece for the coming months in Summer!! :)
Check out the beautiful accessories at Surreal Jewellery Here.

So my family all went and had a lovely holiday in America while I was stuck working in the sticks!  BUT they did bring me back some pressies, so I forgave them and now I'm focusing on catching up with everyone before I head back on Monday.  Oh the FIFO life!

Watch this space.  Behind the scenes photo's from my latest shoot for a friend will be up soon!

How has your month been??

Ola! Como estas amigos?

It's birthday time for my two housemate's (a day apart) so we went and had a little Mexican fiesta at 'That Little Mexican Place' in North Perth.  Being a bit of a Mexican enthusiast I'm quite fussy with my Mexican food.  This place is the bomb.  We ended up having Guacamole, Crab empanada's, a saucy duck dish and pork and fish taco's all for $25 each, plus it was BYO annnddd I brought sombrero's for an extra Mexican kick.  The place is small and intimate, and the staff are more then accommodating.  The only woe I have with the place is the price - the meals are on the small scale, and unless you are sharing meals it almost wouldn't be enough to fill up the tank. 

To keep in the Mexican spirit I wore:
Mika and Gala print skater dress / Target Sheepskin leather jacket / Miss Shop strap boot / Ltd Edition Tension gold watch / King Kong Mexican hat

This post is quite special.  I think I have turned Mum to the blogging side so she did a few photo's for me too.  She's one pretty cool lady. Must be where I get it from... right?

Sporty Luxe at the Garage

I was browsing through Witchery's website today crossing fingers and toes that they would have their 'European Luxe' black jeans because everywhere I have been looking either doesn't have my size or has sold out completely.  They are great priced ($99.99) and are higher waisted then usual jeans which makes me feel more comfortable - hiding the lumps and bumps that pop out in the low rise jeans.  Also they make your legs looks Amazonial (yes, I just made that word up!) - long and lean.

So I was unsuccessful in finding the jeans  - Might be a successful search on Ebay.  BUT I was successful for finding inspiration for my outfit for todays events.  I stumbled across Witchery's blog and their post entitled: 'Trend Edit: Sports Luxe'.  I'm always one for trying new trends.  As I said in my 'Everyone do the dinosaur - Ganthuaume Point' Here - I usually dress like a 5 year old motorway tomboy - Printed shirts, ripped denim shorts, mullet hairstyles (not really!), but you get my jist.  Depending on the event I like to dress accordingly and different each day.  AH! I'm getting off topic. 

Anyway, browsing I came across the 'Sports Luxe' post and I figure this style puts together my tomboy/sporty persona with my girly, tailored and structured side and I love it.  This picture in particular caught my attention
So I raided my closet and here's my outfit for the day.  I have to apologise for the location for the shoot.  It's in our garage. HA!  It isn't the most creative... but in my defence it's raining and gross in Perth at the moment and I was worried I was going to get rained out if I ventured out for better locations.  So I decided it's going to be a grungy garage sporty luxe shoot.

OUTFIT: Lola vs Harper dress / Peter Morrissey heels (from Big W might I add!!) / Roger David cap / Lovisa gold necklace / Sports girl elastic bracelet

TAH xx

P.S: Kudos to my housie Hooga for taking some photo's for us.  I think you have a bright photography carpenter future ahead of you xx

Knitwit - Starring Lucy the Toy Poodle

Today marks the day that I became a potential full-time Nanna.  Not only do I now wear and adore nanna knits.  Not only did I stay in last Saturday night with a good book and a cup of tea.  Oh no, now you are looking at a nanna knitter in the making.  Today I had a bit of Nanna and granddaughter day which is what everyone girl needs in their life sometimes, and I have been begging her lately to teach me how to knit.  She makes the most amazing knit wear - My goal for next post is to incorporate a few of her famous knitted pieces she has made me throughout the years (I am actually wearing my most favourite knit jacket she made as I type!).  She explained to me that when she was a girl knitting, sewing, cooking and laundry were core subjects that everyone needed to learned (even the guys!).  Knitting and sewing seems to be such a dying art form, and I would love for the tradition to be passed onto my kids, and their kids.  I mean we'll see how the knitting goes, I'm not expecting miracles but I'm giving it a good go :)
It took me so long to decide what to wear today.  Perth's weather has been pretty all over the joint, so I originally started in denim shorts and a button up shirt and boots.  But I decided I was going to freeze my buttons off so I got into my favourite trusty jeans and was on my way :)

I am wearing: Target heels / Nobody jeans / Kookai singlet / Dotti Fur snood / Sportsgirl hat / Ltd edition Tension Gold watch / OPI nailpolish

Does anyone else knit!?

TAH xx

annnnddd.. I'm back.

I have been M.I.A lately with some recent events, buuutt with Perth Fashion Festival coming up how could I resist a good blog posting.  I have missed the world of Blogger and especially checking up what all you fabulous people have been up to! 

At the moment I am in a bit of a rut.  As a child I thought I had my life sorted - Represent Australia/Olympics/World championships and the lot, work in the sporting industry, find a man, get married, etc, etc.  As it seems that hasn't worked out as originally planned so far and I thought I had come to terms with that and that I would ride the wave as it comes. 

However, lately my brain has taken over and I haven't been feeling like myself.  I am second guessing everything I am doing, I am telling myself that I should have figured it all out by now but then I realised that I am only 23 and maybe I am trying to rush things and rush life and I really shouldn't be.

Well I'm getting back on track now.  I am totally in love with fashion and experimenting with different looks which was never in the plan when I was growing up.  And I am totally in love with photography and travelling which also was never a front runner in my favourite hobbies.  I guess keeping an open mind is the key to living and full filling life to the maximum and that's what life is about right?

Feeling good - Zimmermann Strapless Drape Dress/Peter Morrissey Strap shoes/Willie Creek Pendant necklace

Everyone do the Dinosaur - Gantheaume Point

Gantheaume Point is a nice scenic point in its own right, with a lighthouse, red cliffs and a great view back over Cable Beach. Not to mention its castings of dinosaur footprints.  We also took some shots of my new favourite shirt (it has been described as a 5 year old motorway boys style - but I love it!).  I picked it up from the Broome Salvo's for $7!
