Quick Outlook Email Attachments Tip

Recently Outlook loves to upload to OneDrive a file/picture I want to send via email, rather than creating and attaching a copy; which is what it used to do.

Here are a few quick steps to customise your email attachment preferences:

On Outlook.com select the settings cog, and then select ‘Options’ which is located last on the list.

This should bring you to the Options page as displayed below. Expand ‘Mail,’ then ‘Attachment Options,’ and finally click on ‘Attachment preferences.’

From here you can choose whether to have the attachments always upload to a OneDrive folder, always have the file attached as a copy, or to be asked every time which you prefer.


My preferences used to be ‘ask me how I want to attach them every time,’ but this became a little tedious and I found that the interface took a little longer to deal with. So, I set to always have things attached as copies, as this works best for my use. Having said that, it might be nice to have a folder with all attachments on OneDrive if I ever need them.

Let me know if this helps you out 🙂


Blueberry Farm…

One thing I love about Seattle is all the farms. Blueberry farms, pumpkin farms, tulip farms…

They are so beautiful and super tasty! We went quite late in the season, but were still lucky enough to find some gems near the back of the field. Blueberry season is July to mid-September. If you’re in the area and want to try blueberry picking next season try Larsen Lake Blueberry Farm.

I froze the blueberries and eat a handful as a snack. It’s great in the hot weather! I’m thinking I’ll cook some too, but I don’t know any great recipes. Suggestions welcome!

I can’t wait for the next Blueberry season. (Munches on blueberries).

My favourite powder foundations…

Yes, favourite with a ‘u,’ ’cause that’s just how we do it down under…

So, until recently I was a liquid foundation girl. The guaranteed coverage, the flawless application; I had no reason to stray. I didn’t trust the coverage of a powder, surely it had just a little more coverage than powders I use to set my liquid. I have something to admit, I might have been a little wrong when I made these assumptions, or, really wrong.

So here’s a little pros and cons list of a couple I’ve tried.

     1. NARS All Day Luminous Powder Foundation SPF 24.



  • Long lasting. Gotta have that coverage lasting all day long.
  • Smooth finish – it feels great on!
  • Medium to full coverage with the ability to build to full coverage.
  • Covers really well without the weight.
  • This is one of the few products that I’ve hit pan in.


  • Price $$… but totally worth it. I’ll just keep this for special occasions and days I wake up in a bad mood.

     2. Bare Minerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20.



  • SPF, LOVE this!
  • It’s kind of fun watching it match your skin tone as you apply.
  • Great medium coverage.
  • Feels light on my skin.


  • I find that it does not last all day, even with a great primer.
  • If my skin is a little dry – or sunburnt – I’ve found this foundation gets patchy in those areas.

      3. Smashbox Photo Filter Powder Foundation.



  • Light to medium coverage – great for a causal day.
  • The pattern on the foundation is so cute.
  • Quick and easy to apply, blends seamlessly.
  • The formula is very soft!


  • Does not build well for greater coverage.
  • I can only get about six good hours out of this foundation.

If you were like me and love your liquid, but dislike how long it can sometimes take to apply. Branch out, you might just find a new favourite.
