As the university semester comes to a close (!!!!) and I begin to be granted with the luxury of free time, I’ve found myself getting back into reading! Whenever I’m studying I never have the energy to read for fun, but as soon as the holidays roll around, the ‘To Read’ stack of books on my bedside table just gets bigger and bigger. Since it’s the spooky season, I thought it’d be nice to pull together some books I think are pretty appropriate for this time of the year. I’m very reluctant to call this a ‘Halloween Reading List’ as there is no horror or gore here. But there are magical novels featuring witches and wizards, a science fiction world I would hate to live in, a young adult series about a friendship group plagued by a social media stalker, and suspenseful as heck thrillers featuring some absolutely kick ass female characters that kept me on my toes the whole time. If you enjoy this post please give it a “like” so I know, and let’s get on with the reading list!
What a month June turned out to be! I feel like something big happened in a bunch of different areas of my life and so sitting down and reflecting on the past month has been really enjoyable. From finishing yet another semester of university to achieving some career milestones to getting a pop culture history lesson and more, June turned out to be one of my favourite months of the year so far! So get comfortable and grab a snack because we’ve got a lot to get through! If you enjoy this post please give it a “like” so I know and let’s get into the June Favourites!
While I consider myself pretty social media savvy, it took me a long time to get into Pinterest. Once I discovered there’s more to the site than just DIY’s for mums, I fell thick and fast, pinning posts to my various boards left, right and centre. I now love Pinterest and scroll through the never ending feed of inspiration every few days. There’s one downside to it though – it’s gotten me obsessed with so many things. From accessories and fashion to furniture and even specific colour schemes, Pinterest has now hooked me up with a bunch of new obsessions. So, let’s get into the pinnable goodness and hopefully you might find some new obsessions – or at least understand the enthusiasm and go “same, girl, same”.

Romantic candle lit dinners, walks on the beach, getting roses delivered to your door, will I be experiencing any of that this Valentine’s Day? Heck no! I’ll be watching Netflix – without the chill. If those are also your plans for this Tuesday then don’t fear, as I’ve rounded up some of my favourite TV shows and movies on Australian Netflix that you need to get into. This list covers the obvious, such as those classic romantic comedies, but I’ve also thrown in the Netflix Originals that I live for, some classic Australian comedies I’ve been re-watching lately, plus some new shows I’ve recently gotten into!

Last Thursday my family and I made the two hour trip to Willowvale to see the stretching sunflower fields! In the afternoon we even did a quick hike through the mountains and came across the most beautiful waterfall! It was a really lovely way to spend Australia Day as everything from the drive to the fields to the waterfall was so picturesque. Seriously, none of these photos have been edited in any way, they’re just straight from my iPhone 6S. I know this post is a bit of a detour from my usual beauty content, but the photo opportunities were just too gorgeous not to post here! If you enjoy this little photo diary of my day or it inspires to you track down the sunflowers next year, please give this post a “like” so I know! Continue reading “Sunflower Fields + Waterfalls”
baby blog turned one! This time last year I hit “publish” on my first ever post announcing I was starting a blog, and you can read it here! I can’t believe a whole year has passed since! I wanted to write a post to mark the occasion but have been so stuck on what to write about. So, I’ve done a reflection post looking at what I did before blogging, why I enjoy it so much and where I see it going in the future! Give this post a “like” if you enjoy it and let’s crack on, it’s a long one!
Two days ago I sat my final exam for the year and finished my first ever year of university! Coincidentally, today marks exactly one year since I graduated high school, so I thought today would be the perfect time to write about the things I learnt from my experience at university over the last year! This is half things I learnt, half advice I’d give to anyone starting this new chapter in the near future. I hope you enjoy it and find it helpful!
