A Sunrise & A Denim Dress

Feelin’ a liiiittle like a zombie and not in a cute Halloween way, more like in a ‘uni assessment has taken over my life’ kind of way ha! But I’m SO close to finishing my degree now YAY. Just bear with me for the next month 😉 And to any of you also going through assessment at the moment – GOODLUCK! I believe in you!

As you may have noticed, Ryan and I haven’t been on one of our sunrise adventures for what feels like forever so the weekend before last we did just that. We decided to go to Nudgee beach because I did a shoot there a few years ago and I remembered it being a great sunrise spot! We left the house just before 4:30am (dedication ha!) thinking we would have plenty of time to get there but little did we know google maps would hate us AND there would be a ton of roadworks. Luckily, we made it juuuuust in time. Just. And oh my goodness, how pretty is it?! Look at the reflections in the water! Ugh I love sunrises. If you’re ever feeling stressed, get up early one morning and watch the sunrise – it always makes me feel better!… View Post

So, with that said, today I’m sharing with you all my favourite easy-to-make, healthy breakfast recipes to get you in the mood for Spring/Summer.… View Post

Monday Update

LIFE // Today’s public holiday meant for a long weekend – YAY! This weekend, as well as last weekend, I’ve been with Ryan and his family down the coast, which has meant lots of beach time. And it couldn’t have come at a better time seeing as we were in a heatwave and the temperatures where I live in Brisbane got up to 39 degrees celcius! The photos above were from last weekend when it was just Ryan and I but yesterday we were joined by Ryan’s sister and her husband and their adorable one-year old twins (those of you who follow me on insta have probably seen their cute little faces on my insta stories ). Although I have a lot of work to do I’ve been trying not to let it encroach on my weekends too much – I always struggle with the work/rest balance this time of year. But I’m determined to try and finish the year healthy and strong rather than run down.  Plus, it always feels like the time from October until New Year flies by so I want to be more present for it.… View Post

My 10 Favourite Instagram Foodies

Hello friends! (said in >>Ava Ryan’s voice<< at about 1:40 into the video - but you have to watch the whole thing cause this little girl is so freakin' cute) One of my favourite types of accounts to follow on Instagram is foodie accounts. ....Because, well, it’s food. Do I really need to say more?! Foodie accounts are THE BEST for meal ideas, particularly when they’re healthy, and they always get me in the mood to do a little cooking and experimenting with new recipes. Aaaand while I'm in awe of meals that look like works of art, I find myself most inspired by foodies who share simpler every day meals - you know, recipes you could actually make on a day-to-day basis. So, I thought I'd share ten of my favourite insta foodies so they can give you guys as much inspiration as they do me! … View Post

A Little Monday Motivation…

HAPPY MONDAY GUYS! Here’s your dose of motivation to help you kick-start the week on a positive note. Let’s all try to be a little kinder, a little wiser and take care of our body and minds whilst hustlin’ our way to our goals.

P.S. Keep ya’ eyes peeled because I have new blog posts on their way! This last week has been bit of a blur (uni has been mentally taking it’s toll ha) and I took my own advice and gave myself time off this weekend to rest and revive. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!
