In the Summertime!

Hello friends! Sorry for no Monday post, but I thought it would be more fitting saving it for today, the first day of summer. December 1st marks the first day of Summer, the countdown to Christmas and Michael Bublé awakens from his year of slumber. This is hands down my most favourite time of the…

November Favourites

Flashback Friday to the beauty blogging days! Are you better off for reading it? Probably not. But who doesn’t love reading about stuff other people love? How was your November? Where did November go? It’s like we all blinked and bam here’s Christmas. Essie Nail Polish Some would say it’s wrong to be wearing such…

This Week’s Quotes

Social media tells me that Monday’s are all about inspirational quotes to prepare us all for the week ahead. I am someone who believe’s that there’s nothing wrong with Monday’s, it’s just another day. That said, I do love a good quote every now and then, so here are my five favourite quotes of the moment….

Florence and the Machine

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to see Florence and the Machine play the Opera House Forecourt. Now I’ve been to my fair share of concerts before, but I can safely say that this was one of the top 3 shows I’ve ever been too. You know you are in the presence of a…

New Look!

Hello everyone! How are you all? I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. You may or may not notice that things are looking a little bit different. I wasn’t happy with the way my blog looked and the overall feel of the old theme. So I spent the past week fixing some things up. I…

The Best Christmas Movies

Christmas is my favourite time of year, it’s so much fun getting caught up in the excitement of it all. In honour of my love for this time of year, I’ve decided to do a few Christmas themed blog posts in the coming days. One of my favourite parts of Christmas, is Christmas movies! There’s…

DIY Christmas Gifts

It’s just four days till Christmas and some of us (i.e. Me) are yet to start shopping for their loved ones gifts. Now I have my reasons for leaving my shopping so late, and I’m sure I’m not the only person who does this. Sometimes it becomes a little too late to go out and…

BYE 2015 IT’S BEEN REAL

Hello friends! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful past couple of days. I’ve been in a food coma since the 25th and show no signs of recovering anytime soon. 2015 is coming to an end with 2016 peaking its head around the corner. Although it feels like 2015 happened in the blink of an…

The Good Foods: Miss Margarita Broadbeach

Mexican food is my absolute, all time favourite of all the foods. That being said, I like good Mexican. By good, I mean Mexican food that isn’t drowning in cheese and black beans. Miss Margarita on Broadbeach is the sister restaurant to its Byron Bay counterpart. When you first walk in, it feels like you’re…

HOLI-DAZE

January is such a strange time of year, it almost feels like some kind of limbo between Christmas and Easter. It feels like everyone is in reset mode, or “new year, new me” mode, whilst normal life feels kind of suspended for the first few days after new years. For as long as I can…

Hunt & Gather – Sunset Gather

I love a good market as much as the next person and am very fortunate that where I live, there are some pretty decent markets regularly. My favourite market to wander round is the Hunt & Gather Markets, which are held in Newcastle’s Pacific Park on the 3rd Saturday of every month. Lately, the lovely…

Hottest 100

Next Tuesday Australia Day is upon us, or as I like to call it Triple J Day. Back in the day, when I was still in the throws of my “emo/alternative” music phase (think All Time Low and Mayday Parade), I never used to pay any attention whatsoever to the Hottest 100. Thankfully, I grew…

The Good Foods: The Tea Project

A while ago, I dedicated a whole post to tea and how much I love it. So you can understand my excitement when I went to The Tea Project in Newcastle over the weekend. I’d been meaning to pop into The Tea Project for what seems like forever, but never actually got around to it….

January Favourites

So January came and went in a blink of an eye, it feels like only five minutes ago I was packing to go on holiday. Here are some of the things I’ve liked this month, because who doesn’t love reading about stuff other people love? The Fifth Upper East Watch For the better part of…

What’s PR?

Having just finished uni, I spend a fair amount of time at family gatherings explaining what exactly PR is. I say PR, they say Absolutely Fabulous. I say PR, they say Samantha Jones PR. No it’s not like Absolutely Fabulous (that said, love that show). No it’s not like Samantha Jones PR (that said, Samantha…
