So I feel like I owe an explanation for my lengthy silence.. For what seems like the hundredth time in the last couple years, it was time to pack up and move! After spending a significant chunk of time tirelessly looking for rental properties, falling in love with places we couldn't afford & putting in application after application, we finally found a place!

The last couple of months has been a blur of (once again) boxing up all of our things and settling into our new home. Thankfully this time my little bun Alfie gets to live with us, so I am one happy camper! We're much closer to Sydney now which is a massive bonus, and our lovely little apartment feels like home even after a few short weeks of living there.

On top of moving, work has been crazy busy since Christmas so I've been struggling to find the time to just unwind and enjoy my hobbies (taking photos and blogging - hence the silence). I bought a magazine yesterday for the first time in months and I was a little overwhelmed with how inspired it made me feel! I don't even know what to do with all of this creative energy, so hopefully I can harness some of it and get in a bit of a routine with blog posts again.

For me a home doesn't feel like a home until there are plants and pretty little knick-knacks everywhere, I'm finding it a little difficult to stop myself from going crazy in home d├ęcor stores! I am pretty ecstatic with the timing of our move though, it's almost Easter which means there are bunny figurines and toys EVERYWHERE. My idea of heaven! I've limited myself to one for now, check out my adorable little white tarnished bunny [pictured above] from Bed Bath N' Table!



Last night when I was sorting through my folders on my computer I stumbled across a bunch of photos I'd taken years ago when I first got my first DSLR camera (circa 2009). Most of the photos weren't of anything spectacular, just things from around the house and a whoooole heap of trees and flowers! The photo above is of my absolute favourite flower, a Protea. Well, the King Protea might be my favourite, but they're at least in the same family! My point is, that sometimes it's so hard to remember the little things in life, and that's why I love being able to look back at all these precious little moments.

I do still use my camera occasionally, but not nearly as much as I did back then. I was absolutely crazy about photography and I would waste (well, not waste) hours editing and re-editing the photos that I'd taken. Looking back through the thousands of photos I have stashed away, it hit me how much I miss it! I never took photos for anyone but myself, and not even for any reason or purpose, but it sure did make me happy.

So, as of right now, I'm going to bust out my trusty old camera and try and get back to what I love doing. Here's hoping that I can get some of my inspiration back and get out of the annoying little rut that I seem to be stuck in!



I love making moodboards, there's something so therapeutic about not having any rules and just being able to make a little collection of the things that inspire you. It reminds me of being a kid and cutting pictures out of magazines to make little collages (although admittedly back then mine probably had less pretty design things and more Nick Carter).

Here's one I put together in tribute of the lovely summery feeling that always starts around this time of year!


One of the most important things on my mental checklist for my future home is natural light. Oversized windows and big sliding doors are definitely my friend! Check out these beautiful spaces and the way that they've used simple styling & neutral colour palettes to make their homes seem even more bright!

Lately I've been thinking quite a bit about what it is that I want to achieve in my career/life in general... When I was younger (okay maybe not that young, lets say 2 years ago at most) I thought that all I needed was to find a stable job where (if I was lucky) I could happily design to my heart's content.

Now that I'm working full-time in a job where am I actually able to gain more design experience to (hopefully) get where I need to be, I've found that I've started to drift further away from where I want to be & I'm starting to lose sight of what I want (and what I need) out of life.

I mean yes, this job experience is "good for my resume" and hopefully will help me get into a really great job further down the line, I know that everyone has to start somewhere. In the meantime, I'm not sure that it's worth staring at a screen all day every day and genuinely not having one shred of enjoyment in what I'm doing.

I want to travel, I want to explore places that I've never been before. I want to create things for no one else but myself. I want to take some time out and relax. I want to spend time to appreciate all the wonderful people around me. I want to stop stressing out so much and getting so frustrated over the unimportant things in life.

I don't want to get stuck in this rut of being so focused on this mythical "future job" that I completely ignore what's going on in the present. I don't know how I'm going to make a change, but I think admitting that something does need to change is the first step.. right?



After what felt like the longest Winter ever, the sun has finally shown his/her face! Blue skies & warm nights are finally here, and my favourite thing of all - the beautiful native flowers have started to bloom! It's tempting to keep a pair of scissors in my bag just in case I stumble across a goldmine of flowers in the "wild", but I have a feeling I'd feel way too guilty if I got caught..

So for now I'll resort to buying them from the florist, until my wallet starts to protest anyway!




I feel like I'm finally getting back into the swing of things. I've been feeling so uninspired & unmotivated lately, and that can always be a little tricky to overcome for me! Being stuck in a rut is the worst feeling - sometimes I feel like I just need to take a step back and take a break, rather than forcing myself into things that I'm not really feeling 100% about. After a couple of amazing weekends full of adventures I'm feeling ten times better and well rested, and ready to get stuck into more design work! Here's a wallpaper I made up to honour the end of (hopefully) my inspiration drought. Enjoy!

Spring is finally here! I couldn't be happier to be going into warmer weather, especially seeing as it's nearly daylight savings time! Hurray for more sunshine & longer days :)

The last month has been a blur of moving boxes & constantly unpacking. I was somehow under the impression that moving back home was going to be "soooo much easier" than moving into a new rental.. I was wrong. It's exactly the same amount of stress, except this time at least I had my favourite little man waiting for me at the other end! Everyone, meet Alfie;

But with all that said, we've finally settled in! Though there are some unpacked/unsorted boxes hidden away in the shed that I'm hoping no one will notice.. Fingers crossed that now I'm getting back into my routine I can make much more of an effort with the blog - It's fallen to the wayside a little, but I'm determined to get back into the swing of things & get motivated again!
