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…

The Great Ocean Road(trip)

I honestly believe that every South Australian over the age of about nineteen has, at least once, uttered the words ‘I really have to do the Great Ocean Road one day’. Honestly, for a lot of my friends (and until a couple of weeks ago, myself!), that’s about where it fizzles. It all becomes a…

#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…

Whirlwind Melbourne!

Last weekend I had the beautiful opportunity to see the sights of Melbourne- and am I the kind of gal to let having abut $40 in my bank account, super squeezy daylight hours and Victoria’s signature drizzly weather hold me back? Hell no! Here’s how I did the big-little city on cash and time budget, and loved…

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…

One for the small town kids.

This is an ode to the boys and girls that came from the middle of nowhere, and found themselves as small fish in a big town sea. You might have spent your toddlerhood on a station, kindergarten in the bush, (in my case) the first eight years of your life in a tiny seaside town…

The Chloe Jane Netflix weekend binge guide.

For some of us, it’s the last weekend of holidays; and the realisation has just dawned that we have packed the past two weeks with productive, worthwhile activities- meaning that we are running n fumes in terms of how much pop culture / lame but excellent movies / cult tv sows we have consumed. For…

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…
