Wedding Inspiration 02

  It’s been a while since I did a wedding update on here and we are getting back into the swing of planning after a few months’ break. I can’t believe we are getting married in 5 months time! I used to think it was silly when people have a 3 year engagement period but it’s already been almost a year that we’ve been engaged and it’s gone SO fast, I could totally do with another year of planning! Our…

A Week of Lasts

It’s been a bittersweet week of ‘lasts’ here in Melbourne – last day of work, last walk through leafy Fitzroy, last açai bowl, last run along the Yarra River with the most stunning view over the city. I’ve always been a real homebody, and now that I’ve made my home here, I’m not going to lie… it’s very hard to leave. I’m not sure I’ll ever completely feel at home in one place again because a piece of my heart…

Interior Inspiration: Crushing on Velvet

Every time I move house (or more realistically, flat), I start thinking about how I’m going to decorate it before I even get there. Recently I’ve developed an obsession with velvet for both clothes and interiors. It’s always something that’s slightly given me the heebie-jeebies from the way it brushes in different directions, but I’m loving the luxe look right now. 1/2/3 My favourite tones for the season are deep emerald, blush pink, deep teal-navy, and ochre. Mixing with textures…

A New Chapter

And just like that, 2016 is almost over! And what a year it’s been. A pretty awful one for the world (I’m looking at you, Brexit and Trump) and also on a personal/family level it’s been the worst ever. But it’s wasn’t all doom and gloom. I got engaged to my very best friend and life on the whole has been very happy over the last 6 months. Either way, 2016 is a year I definitely won’t be forgetting anytime…

How to spend 3 days in Singapore

Last month I flew to Singapore for just 3 days on a whirlwind weekend trip to see my sister and her boyfriend who have recently moved there to teach. I’d briefly dropped into Singapore on the way to Cambodia/Thailand last year, but didn’t do much exploring so I was excited to see a bit more of what Singapore has to offer. I think it’s often a city in which people spend a few days before travelling further around SE Asia, so…

Just a Minute | A November Update

I’m currently sat on the sofa in my PJ shorts waiting for my gradual tanning moisturiser to sink in because the weather is warming up and no one wants to see these pasty legs. I find it hard to blog after some time off so thought I’d dive in with a catch-up post to get back on the band wagon. There’s been an overwhelming amount of life admin (lifemin?) lately and when I have a spare moment I’ve de-stressing with Netflix,…

Wedding Planning, Boating, & Rooftop Drinking in London

After our week in France in August, we headed to London for 5 days. It was the first time seeing many of my friends in almost 2 years so it was full of wonderful reunions. My parents had just bought a boat on the Thames with their friends so we had a couple of trips down the river soaking up the sun, nibbling on picnic food, and sipping Pimm’s. It’s amazing how different London feels when you’re on the river, even in central…

5 Summer Looks I Can’t Get Enough Of

  Clockwise from top left: 1/2/3/4 I wish I could be one of those people who love living in their boots and knitted jumpers and all things cosy. I enjoy it for about a week and then I’m over it. I get so bored of throwing on the same jacket and boots every morning. Maybe it’s time I expanded my winter wardrobe, but I’d always much rather buy another bikini or summer dress than another pair of black boots. It’s…

Planning a Wedding from Abroad

I thought I’d do a little update on the wedding planning since a lot has happened since my last wedding related post in April! I don’t want to go wedding overboard on the blog, but it’s also something that I want to document and it is also taking up a lot of our spare time at the moment. Obviously I’m not a wedding expert only being a few months into planning, but I thought I’d give a few tips and log our…

Essentials for a Cosy Night In

I’ve really embraced being at home this past winter. As much as I enjoy exploring at weekends and going out with friends, nothing beats curling up on the sofa in the evening and reading a book, watching a movie, or skyping the fam. The weather teased us here in Melbourne by warming up last week (I even sunbathed!) but now it’s back to its wintery ways, and I thought I’d embrace the chill for just another week. Here are my hibernating essentials……
