Tangalooma Resort

Tangalooma Resort 
So im back from Australia now, and wanted to tell you about my stay on the beautiful Tangalooma Island resort!

The staff and workers are all very friendly and informative, its beautiful to see how much they care about the animals, and about you having the best trip you possibly can. 

The staff organize over 40 free activities including talks about the animals, Helicopter workshops, water and land sports for everyone to enjoy and a free catamaran sailing lesson! Which means you can have amazing new experience completely free!

Tangalooma resort is home to thousands of species of wildlife and marine life, giving its guests an opportunity to see animals such as dolphins, pelicans and whales of many kinds, in their natural environment.

 These animals are free to come and go as they choose, and the whales and dolphins in particular like to come here to show off.
You can ever feed the wild dolphins at night! These gorgeous creatures have a history of coming to the resort, right back to the grandmother of the dolphins.

 Her family still come every night, even bringing there babies!
All of it is cruelty free, as the animals are not owned by anyone, but instead choose to arrive. The marine biologists have helped many of these dolphins, who have been sick or injured.

The wrecks are incredibly beautiful.Even if you do not wish
snorkel them, then you can go on a walk along the beach
and see them from the shore- for free!
The most amazing thing about Tangalooma resort is the activities on offer. Well worth the extra money, the include;  Snorkeling the wrecks and seeing all the different species of fish, Plant life and the occasional beautiful Turtle or Shark ( don't worry! This type of shark is adorable and is no danger to people), watching the humpback whales from a ship as they travel across the sea for their great migration and taking photographs of these magnificent creatures. Or for the more adventurous try Sand-boarding down huge sandunes at 60mph.

You do not even need to be a good snorkeler  or even a good swimmer! The instructors will ensure that you have an enjoyable and safe time. 

The accommodation. 
Tangalooma resort offers many different forms of accommodation including Hotel rooms,Private Villas, Resort rooms and Luxury apartments. So whatever way you wish to enjoy your trip, you can stay in style.

Flourish of Flowers

Flourish of Flowers!
Hello to you all! I hope everyone is having a great summer!
Now i am not the biggest fan of Gardening myself, but i love pretty Gardens, i think they really have character and are worth all the hard work!

Every Gardener will agree with me that the flourish and the burst of colour comes from the gorgeous flowers and that summer is the perfect chance to embrace the beauty of them!
When you plant a flower, given that you look after it, it will live for a long time! That means that every year around spring/summer time (depending on the flower) the plant will burst into bloom and spread a happy atmosphere through your garden.
Flowers aren't that expensive either, lets take a look at some flowers from some local garden centres in Norfolk.

A trip to the Garden Centre , although some may not admit it, is a lovely thing to do.
Lets take a look at some Lovely Garden centres that I personally recommend having been their myself

Outdoor Vintage Signs! Give it a try?

Hello everyone!
Well the time has come for everyone to start enjoying their summer for real! Stress and Care free!

I once did an article called "That Cute Little Touch"  , Well now it is time for that Outdoor cherry on the top!

You can get so many different types of signs all with cute messages, nouns or sayings on! You can personalize them to.
Like this one...
Haha, what a classic thing to say!

How cute is this , use stencils to create that gorgeous touch!

Want to make some gorgeous signs yourself?
Why not give it a go?
Heres what you need to do..

What you will need...
~You can make or buy these , here is a preference to buy 
 This letter stencil is elegant and sweet and you can use them more than once too!

~You simply need a bit of wood, doesn't need to be completely smooth either, a little rough will make it that extra bit authentic. ~Here is an example~
This is simply the perfect texture!
~Some paint to paint it over with, can just be rough , care doesn't matter as much for the shabby chic look! ~For Example, Click here~

~You may want another stencil of a rose or something , as an extra little touch! Or maybe make one like this! 

~String or Ribbon! Just something to hold the sign up! Unless you are nailing it to a door or wall.

What do you do?
Well this is as simple as 1,2,3,4
1.Paint the piece of wood with your chosen colour and leave to dry!
2.Carefully paint on the lettering using the stencils
3.Add on any extra little Touches , For example: The Rose!
4. Add the string/Nail it to the wall or door!
And their you have it soo simple to do! Great for a rainy day!
