“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
~ Audrey Hepburn
Slowly I’m developing an ‘inspiration & creative corner’ for my home.
Assembled the bookshelf – of course from my favourite place, IKEA, and most comfie leather + wood lounge chair with stool. I’ve been reading, drawing, meditating and writing in this serene and peaceful area of my home, where I truly feel in the zone. Next on the list is the desk, for all my stationery & crafts!
My boyfriend was the brains behind this idea. He could tell I had a creative block, and needed a special space for my passions, so he came up with the whole idea.
Bittersweet; arousing pleasure tinged with sadness or pain.
The past 6-8 months has been bittersweet. A relationship of 5 years ended. I went on 2 amazing holidays; Greece and Hawaii. My Budgie Pookie who I had a strong bond with died. People have been amazingly generous. My moods haven’t been my best. I’ve been spending more time with family. I met someone new who is thoughtful and such a wonderful soul.
Not sure what’s next, but I guess that’s the magical part. Staying positive and patient. Meditating, praying and remembering to be *grateful*.
Some snippets from my birthday celebrations in Hawaii last month! One of my mantras for this year is to *enjoy the little things*!!!
While I was away my beautiful pet bird was sick (now he is in a better place). I was so distraught but I HAD to keep a smile on my face and remember that life is beautiful and meant to be enjoyed. I knew he wanted me to be happy.
Like I said on my instagram, his life and death has brought me joy and sorrow, and in his memory I will embrace life, spend time & appreciate the wonderful souls I have in it! J xxx
I have been meaning to wear this dress gifted by gorgeous label #nataliechapman for AGES! I didn’t feel as confident in it 6 months ago. I felt like it was too tight. But I realised I was being silly. It’s such a gorgeous dress which deserves to be shown off!

Ventura Comp Jamis - Road Bicycle
I’ve been meaning to get a bicycle for FOREVER, so that I could go for a ride down to my local beach Brighton le Sands. I FINALLY got one, a proper road bicycle gifted by a special someone. LUCKY me :)
I used to ride a mountain bike all the time as a kid/teen with the other kids in the neighbourhood and for the past year have been yearning to go for a ride to remember those cycling days. A road bicycle is quite different, with the handle bars lower, and thinner tyres. It takes a while to get used to. I think I’ve got the hang of it now!
It’s such a great way to be out in nature and exercise without even noticing it. Recently I’ve ridden at Brighton le Sands which has a great bicycle track and Port Stephens while holidaying.
I’m going to be hitting up these spots for a bike ride real soon! Do you ride? Where’s your favourite spot? xxx

Port Stephens Sand Dunes
SO BEAUTIFUL and EXHILERATING
When I was in Mykonos, quad bikes were the best way to get around and it was so much fun but I was always driven by someone else! In Port Stephens, I got the chance to ride all on my own and it was fricken awesome.
I had no bloody idea that these sorts of sand dunes existed in Australia. I felt like I was in the desert! So amazing. And with that I say – HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY! This country is pretty awesome.
Coming down the huge sand hills was a bit scary, but I am a bit of a thrill seeker. I do like an adreneline rush. Although, I promise – it’s not TOO scary :)
