Well, I made it through another winter here. Born and raised in a city that has all four seasons and very strong renditions of each season, you’d think by now I’d be used to the winters here but nope! Continue reading “JOURNAL: goodbye winter”
July, you were good to us. You were jam packed with friends, family, good food (the effects of which I desperately need to rectify), good purchases and lots of fun.
For the past few months, I’ve been so terrible at getting up and tackling the day. I generally get a good sleep but I definitely have been staying up way too late and perhaps that’s made me a bit too sloth like in the mornings. Not to mention I get the most amazing cuddles if I wait to be woken up by my real-life, walking and talking, three year old alarm. However, she loves waking up to me moving about the house and I love getting my makeup done without little miss grabbing everything they can reach.
I was going to start this post with a quick run down of my routine, but then I realised how ironic it would be to speak about how busy we all are and take up your time with information that does nothing to help you.
Happiness is something I’ve thought about a lot lately. After a tough couple of months (read about it here), I can honestly say that I am – with every fibre of my being – happy. A blissful, light, singing along to the radio at the top of my lungs, sun on my skin, kind of happy.

I want to try something a little different with my blog. I didn’t create this blog to be endless posts providing free advertising for a multitude of companies. I created it as a place to document things that add value to my life in a bid to add value to yours.
When I wanted to update my room, I knew I wanted a few things – 1) I wanted my room to promote relaxation, 2) I wanted good quality bamboo sheets, 3) I wanted a big piece of artwork that I wouldn’t grow tired of and 4) I wanted my bed on the floor.
A couple of weeks ago, I posted on Instagram that I cull five things from each room in my house each week. Surprisingly, I received so much feedback – both from people who are trying to do similar or people who wished to do the same but couldn’t stand to lose their possessions.
