Unspoken Conversations are the topics that are often swept under the carpet, whispered amongst the closest of friends and bitched about by many. I want to create awareness about difficult things that people face in life; grief, mental health, money, illnesses, family troubles, relationship difficulties and putting yourself first. I want to tell the truth about things that really matter.

Getting to know me better, my life through photos.

As I get a little more technical smechnical with my blog I have learnt about "link ups" with other bloggers. 

Today's "link up" is initiated by Erin at Shades of Grey and a Touch of Pink. Check out her blog, it's awesome!

Since I'm new to the blogging world and I'm starting to get some followers who aren't only my beloved proud mum and dad, sister, friends and family, I thought I would share a little piece of my life through my photographic memories so you can get to know me a little better.

I LOVE photos. So much so that we planned our wedding date around our photographer because he's just so AMAZING! (check his work out by clicking on the AMAZING!)

 So here goes.

1. Your little tyke self.

I don't have a little tyke photo of myself but if I did, it'd look something like this!

2. Your high school self.

This photo cracks me up. I'm not sure how old we were but we were definitely at school still. We dressed up just for giggles, went down the street like this and went out for tea and scones!

3. Your college self.

This photo cracks me up! My college self definitely centred around alcohol, dressing up and having fun! Passion Pop (the cheapest wine you can practically get in Australia) was definitely a *highlight* of my college years!

4. Your right now self.

That's me in the middle with two of my best friends, drinking cider on Australia Day last year. I LOVE this photo! 

5. Your furry friend.
Okay so this little champ isn't mine but he's soooo god damn cute!

6 Your manly friend.

This is the kid who stole my heart at 15.

7. Where you once lived.

I grew up in a small country Australian town of 1,000 people. This is my favourite beach. 

8. Where you now live.

We're very proud home owners in Adelaide, Australia!

9. What you love.

I love my sister and just having FUN and not taking life too seriously!

10. What you miss.

 Doing spontaneous, spare of the moment things like JUMPING OUT OF A PLANE.

Look after yourself and those around you,

Kirsty xxxx

So jealous that you live in Australia! I heard its gorgeous there! Looks like you live your life to the fullest!
Love it!

Erin said...

Ahh I want to visit Australia so badly!!! So jealous of you. Thoroughly enjoyed all of these pictures. Glad I wasn't the only little kid who played in the mud haha. Thanks for linking up!!

Kirsty Arnold said...

Haha thanks Kristen. I definitely try to make the most of any situation! I really want to visit America one day. Maybe when we have kids so that I can take them to disneyland (and secretly be the one to push them out the way so that I can get on the rides first!)

I'm abit of an adrenaline junkie! I LOVE stepping out of my comfort zone like sky diving! So much fun!

Haha my sister and I were always covered in mud building cubbies, or making bike tracks or climbing trees or making "mud pies" for mum and dad!

I loved growing up in a small town!

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to share a little bit of my life with your bloggers!
