#ChangeTheDate

artwork: Ailie Banks Picture this: you have a home. It’s your dream home. It doesn’t matter what that might look like to you, it could be sleek, shiny surfaces or ornate fireplaces and lush curtains draping all over the place or a snug little cottage, surrounded by gumtrees. It’s yours. Not only is it yours,…

A scary ‘gramming experience.

it was rushing, angry, fierce. If I was floating & was pulled out by it, I would be gone. If I was standing in it and lost my balance, I would be gone: the billabong was on the edge of a cliff, and beyond that was an expanse of churning ocean. 

How we stopped pushing, and found more happiness in our relationship.

Before I jump into the point of this post ( did someone say #clickbait?? haha, trust, I’ll get there), I’d like to set the scene with three things to note. My partner- holy shit, how old am I??- Patrick and I have one of the most chilled-out relationships in existence. We’ve been together for five years, and…

That time.. I got lip fillers and anti-wrinkle injections (at age 23!)

So when I balance out the idea of not having to put a face on all summer to feel confident in my own skin (it only washes off in the ocean anyway!) with my fear of needles and pain and anything mildly unpleasant, stepping out of my comfort zone and into the capable hands of a gorgeous SILK Laser cosmetic nurse to undergo some real-life cosmetic injectable treatments won out- just.

The Beach is for Everyone.

My love affair with the beach is absolutely hereditary. A little less ‘The Graduate’ and a little more like passing on a precious heirloom, all of my memories of my mum at her happiest involve a bottle of Palmer’s Coconut Suntan Oil, a faded pink-and-white-striped beach umbrella and sun, sand & crystal blue for as…

How to clothes-shop on EBay like a professional stylist*.

*By absolutely no means am I a professional stylist, what a ridiculous and misinformed claim. If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me where I got my dress / skirt / necklace / bag from and I replied with a gleeful grin and ‘EBay’, I would have an extra $5 this week…

#thelivealittlesummer

It’s about getting off your bum and doing the heck out of this life, rather than just being alive. It’s about surrounding yourself with people, places, experiences that your soul can’t help but soak up and adore like crazy. It’s about balmy nights, sundown sessions, crystal clear water, early morning starts, endless laughter, getting your…

Shangri-La (La La Laaa)

If you’ve been waiting for something a little bit different to reach Adelaide, somewhere you can go on a Friday night and have an incredible time, every time, you’re going to be absolutely smitten with Shangri-La. Tucked up a flight of stairs on Hindley’s busiest strip, Shangri-La is a balanced blend of modern karaoke bar, private…

Let’s talk about sex(y photos).

Once again, the topic of leaked nudes is all over the media. Honestly, I feel a little bit desensitised to the issue these days- funnily enough though, it’s the lack of feeling I have about it that makes me fired up as all hell. No prizes for guessing which aspect of the conversation I find…

A tribe of Australian Instagram accounts you want to be following.

Instagram is unashamedly my all time favourite form of social media, and probably could be listed as a hobby on my resume, too. There’s something so golden about seeing people’s lives through rose tinted glasses, and experiencing the way that they do life with pretty filters and strategic angles- bloody love it.  Some accounts are…
