Some Thoughts on Body Image

For me it was never the magazines, the TV shows or any of ‘the media’ – (ironically) I was never much into ‘the media’, whether by choice or by ignorance. For me it was always myself. Sure, I compared myself to my friends… “why can’t I have hair like…”, “why am I not as skinny as…”, “why is she…

The Best Kitchen Tea You Ever Did See!

There was everything from toilet paper wedding dresses, to a pre-recorded video from the groom to more sweet treats than 30 people could eat in a month. Almost everything was a surprise (except the date & time!) and I was completely blown away as we arrived at a close friend’s parents’ house, where they had strung…

Wedding + Engagement Updates!

Peter took this picture of my ring earlier this year while we were in Munich, Germany. For me, pictures evoke feeling even more than words, and just seeing this photo fills me with so much excitement for the future and emotional memories about the night we got engaged (which now feels like a lifetime ago)!…

Loving

As a blogger, one of my favourite things to do is to read (and read and read and read…) other blogs. Naturally, I think that bloggers inspire each other with their thoughts, their creativity and their post ideas! I’ve been loving Erin James’s blog ‘It’s Erin James‘ (formerly ‘Sweetness Itself’) – especially her little ‘what I’m…

The Lake District

It’s hard to describe such a beautiful place without photos, and words probably won’t describe England’s Lake District any better than my photos can – but it seemed wrong not to comment on how much I adore this place. We stayed in The Lake District for 3 nights, and while that doesn’t seem long (it certainly…

100 Days & the ‘I Do’s!

As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen. – Winnie the Pooh I never saw myself as an ‘adventurer’, but looking back, our relationship has been quite the journey – I expect every relationship is, in its own way. With 100 days until our wedding day, I couldn’t believe…

Our Engagement Party!

I thought I’d pop onto the blog today to give you a little update on our wedding, and the celebrations we had over the weekend! A lot of people talk about the engagement period being a stressful time of life, but I have to say that I’ve found it to be a real blessing, and…

The Changing Seasons • Reflections

Times are changing… As I sat on a Sydney train yesterday for an hour and a half, diary open on my lap, pen between my teeth and mind all over the place, I had the sudden realisation that this year is one of the most uncertain years of my life so far. Never have I…

Coming Home

Sadly, the days of repacking, sink-washing and epic exploring are over. Four days ago we boarded a twenty something hour flight that would take us all the way back to Sydney, Australia. While I’m so sad that this incredible journey has ended, it’s exciting to be home. Two months is a decent length of time to be…
