Just a random collection of photos of life moments from my iPhone that needed to be blogged. I love looking back at posts like this over the years and remembering what day-to-day life was like, not just the big picture.

I’ve started up Kayla Itsines 12 week programme again (currently at the start of week 4). It’s challenging stuff but I’ve been pretty homesick lately and getting a sweat on always helps to perk up my mood. Plus I just can’t go on enjoying these amazing Melbourne breakfasts without upping my gym game! I’ve also got a new bike! I cycled a lot back in London and it’s sooo nice to have fresh air again in the mornings. I’ve named her Honey and she’s a rickety dream to ride.

Last week my colleague brought me in a raw caramel slice to have whilst everyone else had cake (as I’m coeliac). It was SO amazing so I tried making my own this weekend, just from natural, unrefined raw ingredients. It turned out pretty good for a first attempt and I made myself feel sick eating ‘caramel’ straight from the bowl. It needs a bit of tweaking before I share the recipe though. Have you tried making raw treats? They’re everywhere here in Aus. I’d like to make a cheesecake next!

I hope you UK-dwellers are all appreciating this heatwave you’ve got going on! I’m not sure how many more barbecue photos I can take on FaceyB before I book a flight home. Saying that, Melbourne in Winter is not too bad compared to the UK. It’s pretty cold and dark at the moment but the cold days are broken up by sunshine, and it’s not so depressing when you know it’ll be over in a couple of months and Spring is guaranteed to be warm. I’m enjoying curling up on the sofa in the evenings after the gym and getting my Netflix on.

What have you been up to this weekend? It’s 9:30pm here, just had a lovely Skype with my Mum and now I’m off to bed haha! This girl needs her sleep x

    A friend of mine made a raw carrot cake once that was seriously amazing! That raw caramel slice looks so good too. Looking forward to the recipe once you've tweaked it 🙂 Hope you're having a great weekend! xxx

    Ah I was going to ask you about the Kayla workout as I thought I recognised it! I'm a bit disappointed it doesn't come with videos – is it distracting referring to the paper?

    Hey! I don't really find it distracting. Each workout has 2 circuits with 4 exercises in each, and you repeat them a bit so you get to know them over the weeks. I just take a good look at them before I start so I can just glance down when I need to. It's designed to be done at home but you'd probably need to make a few changes. I do them in my little apartment block gym where they don't have much equipment so I just make do. It's really hard but a good challenge! X

    Ooooh where is your bike from? It's a beauty! So glad I stumbled across your blog. Your designs are so pretty! I'm already mentally planning my dream home with them adorning the walls 🙂
