Underwater World

Woohoo! Back to usual programming. I'd just like to take a quick moment to say thank you to the 100+ people that entered my giveaway. The winners have now been announced and I'm already looking forward to the next one I host (whenever that be!). Continuing my birthday weekend, Jason and I stopped off at Underwater World before heading back to Brisbane. I hadn't been here since I was probably 12 or 13 years old and oh man I must have had the worst memory but it's changed so much!

Seal show venue.
Alice the fish. 

1 minute walk to the beach nearby.
Ending off with my favourite fish of the day. 

Hope you all had a fantastic Ekka holiday and are enjoying your week so far. I've got a lot of crap to jam into the next two days but I'm going away on Sunday to celebrate Alice's 19th woohoo! Can't believe it's already been a year since she turned legal - feel like it was just last week :( Wishing you all well, s.

Hello hello! I've been planning to do this since I hit half a million views over a trillion (ish) months ago but as per usual I kept putting it off just because I never really knew what to giveaway. Thankfully, I've actually been sent $100 in ASOS gift vouchers to giveaway as a way to say a huge thank you to everybody who's been following - whether it was from the start of srhtrng, before on iphly or even just yesterday. All of you are the reason why I stand up in public places to take photos of my table, why I'm able to try new things, and why I'm able to receive some of the absolutely crazy opportunities that I do.

The rules: 
  1. I'm incredibly sorry to the international readers (I'll make it up to you!) but this giveaway is only for those currently living in Australia.
  2. You must be a student.
  3. Winner will be selected randomly and announced shortly after the giveaway ends.
  4. Follow all the prompts in the Rafflecopter below strictly to make your entries count!

Have some questions?
  1. Do I have to do all of the steps?
    Nope, absolutely not. The only mandatory thing you have to do to enter this giveaway is to sign up to the ASOS student emails as provided in the link below.
  2. Does it matter if I'm already signed up to ASOS student emails?
    Nope! Pop it in anyway and this way ASOS will be able to update your account type.
  3. Why have you been tagging #thehundredproject on all of your Instagram pictures?#thehundredproject is a year long Instagram challenge set by ASOS to upload 100 outfit selfies with that tag (kind of like #100happydays but with ootds). People who complete the challenge will be rewarded with a 25% off code valid for an entire year and the most fabulous of them all will receive a $250 ASOS gift vouchers every month for an entire year.
  4. Why should I sign up for ASOS student emails?
    10% off all year round plus the special 25% bump up every so often.

    Of course! If it's not for you there's definitely no hard feelings here.
  6. Do I have to use my university email?
    You can use whichever email you like.
  7. I'm still a bit confused, what do I do now?
    Message me on my account by either clicking HERE or messaging me through the sidebar.

Why is Instagramming a photo worth so many entries?
  1. It's because ASOS is currently running their own Instagram competition! By competing that single step, you've not only gotten three entries to win one of my $50 vouchers, but you've automatically entered the competition to win one of three $300 gift packs for you and your friend in the photo from ASOS.

Phew that was a lot to read! Happy entering guys - normal posts will resume straight after the 11th of August. I hope all of you had a fantastic start to your week and again, thank you for absolutely everything x, s.

Surprise weekend away

So, apparently Jason has a little bit of a romantic space in that stony little heart of his :P I'd known for almost a month that we were going away for the weekend immediately after my birthday but for the first time in our relationship Jason offered to take all of the planning responsibilities. Naturally I was a little bit nervous because I'm the type of person to book reservations a fortnight in advance and Jason is more of an on-the-day type of person but ooooh man, I was so surprised and loved every single bit of my weekend. 

Started off the morning with McDonalds and a 1.5 hour drive.
Tada! Arrived at Coolum Beach. I'd actually never heard of Coolum and from memory I don't recall ever going to the Sunshine Coast so it was a really nice change compared to the usual Gold Coast trips. 

Spotting fish and crabs in rock pools before checking into the apartment. 
If you look really close you can see that Jason drew a penis in the middle of my R... 
Time to check in!
Carrying on our tradition of buying Krispy Kreme whenever we travel. Side note but have you guys seen that they have a new butterscotch doughnut!?!? Want. Need.
Dinner at The Grill Bar. I only paid $22 for pork ribs and went home with left overs PLUS a very happy belly.
The view from our floor ground apartment! The pools were heated but I didn't have the chance to swim around because I couldn't bring myself to stumble out in the cold at midnight. Seriously regretting that decision while I type. 
I think one of my favourite things about the place Jason booked was that it was H U G E. There was a ridiculous amount of space and we even had our own mini back yard since we were on the ground level.
The big green sofa is a fold out sofa bed!
Fully furbished kitchen with everything you could ever need.

Totally forgot to take a photo of the bedroom before I jumped into it and messed up all of the sheets soz.
Stopped off at Sunshine Coast on the way back home to Brisbane. 

I'd definitely recommend Coolum Seaside to anybody! The reception staff are A+ and the Coolum area is super chill. Just don't bother staying for more than a night because there wasn't much to do around the area apart from the beach and a few resturants. Thank you so, so much to Jason for planning such a lovely weekend for me. 

Next post up is Underwater World! Cannot wait to show you guys photos of the gigantic fish we saw. I hope you've all been well and TGIF x,s.
