Think Pink! Am feeling a subtle pink this month. There's something a little wintery about this shade of pink. It's subtle and chic. Did you know that today happens to be National Pink Day? A day for pink, how about that hey?!

Pink is always my favourite go to colour for lipstick and nail polish. Never thought much about having a pink car though, how about you? I guess it would be the ultimate accessory. The flamingo wallpaper may be a little over the top, but worth it, I'm sure. Happy Pink Day!

Making time to work out.

I've made it to the gym three days in a row & I feel awesome. I’m finding that consistent gym time is helping my mental health as well as physical health. You may not know that I signed up for the last round of 12wbt. While I didn't get to follow it as much as I wanted because the lack of sleep from Zelda (seriously, who’s getting up to workout at 5:30am when you’ve been awake at 11pm, 1am and 3am?) & working full time made it untenable. I had time away with work, Lulu started her after school activities and it all meant that it wasn’t the right time for me to commit to doing the 12wbt. Making time for workouts has been so hard. 

Short Workouts
What changed my mindset in regards to fitting in a workout, was the 'quick' workouts that were part of the post-pregnancy 12wbt program. Keeping the workout to half hour is far more doable than an hour, which had previously been the set workout on the other 12wbt program that I did. You can get to the gym & back home again within that hour. You feel like you’ve had a workout & some time to yourself but it hasn’t taken up the entire evening. 

So this is the first time in a long time that I have clocked three days in a row, but you have to start somewhere, hey?! I’m normally two or three times a week, but it hasn’t been three times in a row in a while and it feels good. Maybe it is all just starting to settle down and get into more of a routine post-newborn baby too. So anyway, my tip to you if you are struggling to fit in workouts is to cut the time down, oh and mix up the workout. Try something different and find the passion again. 

47th Top Half Folk Festival

Top Half Folk Festival at Glen Helen ResortCamping at Glen Helen ResortKirsty Robinson at the Top Half Folk FestivalTop Half Folk Festival
A few photos from the 47th Top Half Folk Festival. The music was fantastic, the kids, well Lulu was great but the other were struggling to get over colds and coughs and like anyone, they did not appreciate the cold, windy weather. I ended up taking Zelda home early. A baby with a wet cough and minus temperatures in a tent do not mix well. We were so thankful for our friends that came with us who are experienced campers. They made it so much more easy for us to handle Zelda while they started the food prep in the morning. Bananas and chocolate cooked in the fire for breaky?! Yes please!

The Top Half Folk Festival is held every two years at Glen Helen Resort. You can fly to Alice Springs, hire a camper van, drive out along the beautiful West Macs and take part in 2019! Your camper will be a lot warmer than our tent - guaranteed!

June Long Weekend Choices

Coming up is the June long weekend. In Alice Springs this weekend offers a big choice, do we go camping for the Finke Desert Race or do we go to Glen Helen for the Folk Festival?

The Top Half Folk Festival is held every other June long weekend at Glen Helen, while the Finke Desert Race is every June long weekend. This year we are choosing Folk, but we do hope to get down to the Finke Start/Finish line on Monday to see our friend finish the race.

What is your choice for the June long weekend? Are you a Finke or a Folk?
