CELEBRATING FAILURES

How quick are we to dismiss that which we don’t do well at or have even, God forbid, ‘failed at’? Imagine this scenario – you bump into an old friend whom you haven’t seen you in ages and they ask you how ‘x’ is going. ‘X’ could be a relationship, a business venture, job opportunity, […]

LET THE GOOD VIBES FLOW.

46477-Good-Vibes-Only

Busting out the Monday morning gratitude. Because another week has arrived, ripe with possibility and potential, and us in sexy little captain’s hats ready to steer this ship wherever we please. Harness the energy of the new week and make a mini declaration as to where//what that direction is. We often disregard or play down […]

GREEN UP YOUR LIVING SPACE

Green-Taxidermy

I know one thing, ok two things, to be very very true. At birth I was gifted with both a curious mind, and cursed with a black thumb. Since my little journey into fully fledged adulthood, I have killed a countless number of plants, vegetables and flowers. I know. What a shitty little vego, one […]

You know those toys that have the pulley string at the back and have a handful of words//phrases that play, on repeat, from their automated little voice chips?

thumb_IMG_9348_1024

  Until I work out a way to become a full time adventure seeker and experience collector, I’m going to have to settle for shorter, more local, backdoor (minds out of the gutter …) kind of deals. Case in point – my very random, spontaneous, YOLO moment of booking a weekend away in Melbourne. Incentive […]

WHAT’S LIGHTING YOU UP?

I sit, cosied up in my bed, whilst heavy rain splatters on outside and I’m comforted by the familiar feeling of this potent, high vibe, evening energy. I swear these nights hit me when I least expect them. I diligently make my way to bed early, after a pre 7pm dinner like the good little […]

Learning to Love the Commute

I write this post, curled up in foetal position in my beanie and cons with a scarf wrapped around my legs for warmth, on a bus en route to Perth. I’ve done this journey a fair few times over my four year period of living ‘Douth’ and have always weirdly enjoyed what other people tend […]
