Water Baby


Swimming is my new favourite pastime. I've always really enjoyed it and could never understand people who'd go to the beach and not go in the water. I don't really find sun baking that exciting. I am always the first person in the water and I don't do any of that mincey mincey errrrr it's cold crap.

But I've always just kind of floated about and relaxed, which is fine and dandy. But I've actually started doing laps. I find it very soothing and relaxing. I can just switch my brain off and swim. I normally swim for about 30 minutes a day which doesn't sound like a lot but by my reckoning (1 lap = 30 seconds) it's around 60 laps. I makes me feel much much better and totally refreshed at the beginning or end of the day (sometimes both!!). I guess not having easy access to a pool for so long (when I moved to Perth I was too poor to have a pool membership), I never really developed a lap swimming fetish. Now the pool is only 9 floors away you can't keep me out of it. I plan to make the most of it for the next 5 months! Hooray!

This would make it even more fun!!!



Cupcakes and cocktails are totally poolside attire!! No arguments!

Oh yes, don't forget sunscreen. Take my word for it, lol...

And not that I'm calorie or weight obsessed or anything like that, but swimming burns a ton of calories (probably enough to erase both the cupcake and cosmo). ;D

(Sorry about the deleted comment, I really felt it needed the extra wink!)

I am totally buying one next month when I get my tax money back!!! Partially because it's adorable and partially because I worry about my hair and what the pool chemicals are doing to it. I hear they put way more stuff in the pools here than in Australia. EIP!!

Nope! Actually I'm pretty sure it's a bath bomb but it was the cutest cupcake I could find on Polyvore. It does look like one of your marshmellow frosted cupcakes tho! I miss your cupcakes :(
