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.

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…

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…

On Sacrifice.

My car sounds funny. On a cold morning it growls like the rasping lungs of a lady who’s been smoking for the last forty years and who’s now sitting uncomfortably close to you at the motor reg, and when it’s hot it gasps for air- spluttering and wheezing and begging me to slow down or at…

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…

How to turn a crap day into a slightly less crap day*

*DISCLAIMER: these tips may or may not work. My grumps are telling me that they deffo won’t but the niggling little angel on my shoulder is telling me they do, every time, and to tell my grumps to shove off and do some of them. Today has been a shit day. Alright, honestly I’ve written one…

How to be alone at uni without being lonely.

As a seasoned life do-er and apparently mature aged student, university is a very different experience for me than it is for most of my classmates; a tribe of young and fresh faced humans who have graduated in the last year or so. A majority of them seem to be deep in University culture- studying 3-5…

2015 in review x 

Your Facebook feed is undoubtedly full of posts about the year that has been, the year that will be and all of life’s trials and triumphs today, so it seems almost fitting that I add to the chorus. 2015 has been the wildest, hardest, most wonderful year of my life thus far. It has been…

Do what you wanna do, be who you wanna be.

When I was a little girl, my mum always said that The Master’s Apprentices “It’s Because I Love You” was my song. She insisted that the world was my oyster, and I’ve always been so grateful to live in a country, family situation and life that makes her claims true. That’s not to say that it’s easy. Sure,…
