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*.
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 :)

Kayak Hire, The Spit, Mosman Sydney.
This year is the year to try new things!!!!! Right?!
I went Kayaking for the first time recently. It’s so much fun and great exercise! My arms got so sore!
If you’ve never gone kayaking before you should really try it. On a weekend with beautiful weather, it’s the perfect day out! :)
Let me know if there are any great (easy) kayaking spots you recommend!
For my birthday I got treated to a beautiful MUD WRAP & HOT STONE MASSAGE in Hawaii. I’ve never had either of the two before, so it was very exciting! The mud wrap was really cool! The mud self heats and once on your skin it bubbles like champagne! And the hot stone massage was incredible. Just loved the feeling of hot stones on my skin.
The spa resport was really clean, and the service was 5 star. I recommend it to anyone going to Hawaii that wants to wind down and relax. At the time my budgie was very sick, and I was so stressed. I just needed some pampering and relaxation, and that it was!
I realised how important it is to look after our bodies and really treat ourselves. You feel really great afterwards! Refreshed! More massages from now on!!!
