I kicked off my Lifestyle Rehab, which involves taking charge of my life after years of chronic illness. We met some friendly kangaroos at Eagle Reach Eco Resort, and I read George R R Martin all month long.
The Gorgeous Girls performed a Bollywood Flash Mob for Linda’s 40th. Oh yes, we did!
The beautiful Betsey Bicyle made her way into my life, and I made some accessory storage.
In May, I was thankful for my magician aka cleaner, introduced the fabulous Leaf & Feather designs made by a gorgeous friend of mine and discussed how I relax. Um, I don’t. The Kimba Likes Lexicon was born, thanks to She’s Sonic from Shop Me Chic. I guest posted for Fox in Flats about online shopping.
I realised that I was thankful for being just the way we are, and I started planning for my inaugural blogging experience – Blogopolis 2012. Boyo and I reviewed Ice Age 4 and Brave, and I guest posted for B Being Cool on makeup.
I introduced the new love of my life – my Clarks Original Liberty print desert boots, and discovered I’d been brushing my teeth incorrectly. For years. Til I’d polished off large slabs of my enamel. I guest posted for Redcliffe Style, and introduced my Rules for Op Shop Shoes – ewwwww!
August is all about the Festival of Kimba, the annual celebration of my birth. Redcliffe Style guest posted for me and I attended Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival as a guest of Sportscraft. I guest posted for Styling You on skin pigmentation.
October was all about rocking on with my frock on for Frocktober. I was very proud to nearly crack my target with $481 raised for ovarian cancer research. I made a classic trifle and a zombie vampire – clearly multitalented.
After the excitement of Frocktober, I flew straight into Bagvember with gusto. Shamefully, I own more than 30 bags and was able to carry a different one every day. I introduced some of my favourite shops, like Bella Emporio and Meshh Byron Bay. I guest posted for Shop Me Chic on Xmas gift ideas for our bloke folk, and drooled over Sinnamon handmade indulgent biscuits. My blog celebrated her first birthday.
I made Rosewater Vanilla cake pops, attended Xmas parties and shared our family story of the birds and the bees. I found some shorts that I could wear in public. Oh, and one more thing – I became a Brown Sugar Brand Ambassador!
Merry Xmas and here’s cheers for 2013!
