I was headed home from beautiful Byron Bay today after attending a hens weekend for a good girlfriend of mine. With my trusty Maps app on my iPad I confidently set off, homeward bound!
First off, it took me in the opposite direction than I had anticipated, on a wild goose chase to a road that didn’t exist. I turned around, deciding to head into the heart of Byron and go from there.
On the way, my helpful navigator instructed me to take the next left, and a sign conveniently stated “TO PACIFIC MOTORWAY”. This sounded legit, so left I went!
Cue half an hour of slowly rolling my low to the ground Subaru over a surface that was more pothole than road, but I certainly saw some gorgeous views – it was totally worth taking the long way around (even if my car may never be the same).
This was my favourite view, with the water sparkling on the horizon.
I was very relieved to see this sign!
Home sweet home 🙂
It’s finally the season for knitwear, hurrah!
I welcomed winter with a few new pieces from Witchery, a soft wool two tone jumper dress, and an adorably snuggly black cape.

I absolutely adore this princess maxi skirt from TopShop!
Emerald green can easily be matched with any colour palette and on this occasion I toned it down with some grey marle for a day at the office.

I decided to cheer up my Monday with a super bright self style challenge featuring my ‘Just In Time’ top from Sass & Bide, and a couple of Black Milk staples.
This top is pretty outrageous (even by my standards!) but I thought the styling difficulty element would be a fun little test for me 🙂

I certainly had a sunshiny day!
I recently moved out of my family home for about the fourth time in my young life, this time feels decidedly more ‘grown up’ (and about time, really).
I moved my belongings out in a slow manner this time, moving them into my best friends house one bag at a time, testing how much of my clothing, accessories and make up et cetera I could go without. As it turns out there were many things I didn’t miss at all. And I became quite enamoured with the idea of creating your living space to best facilitate your own happiness and comfort. All the while keeping it relevant to your current lifestyle.
I wanted to create a space that was calm, comforting and stress free. This is a new era of my life and a fresh start! Here’s the beginning of my space.
And some inspiration concepts…
Natural living spaces, combining earth elements with minimalist ice modern details are my main inspirations for future habitat designs!
Hope you’re all feeling as inspired as I am!
I had the pleasure of playing dress ups with two of the most creatively talented people I know, Milly Jane and Sarah Kay.
I finally had the opportunity to wear my beautiful gown from
Damsel In This Dress which I had made to my size after meeting Melina at the South Bank markets. I seriously adore this dress!!
I had so much fun at this shoot! Hope you all enjoy the photos 🙂

I’m finally back in beautiful Sydney-town, in one of my favourite places in Australia. Glebe has the sweetest little nooks and crannies, and plenty of trendy spots to grab coffee and a bite. I’m always happy here! It’s closely bordered by many other unique suburbs with so much to offer! Never a dull day 🙂
After visiting The Wedge for a coffee Heather & I headed to the Glebe Markets. Found a few little treats including this beautiful crystal aura necklace.
Heading back to my brother’s car I finally got to see the a Adventure Time street art in person!
Heather then took these lovely shots for me, and you can see more of her work here.
Can’t wait for the week ahead!
