Wednesday Wisdom

Happy Wednesday, friends! In the spirit of all things to do with change, I’m sharing with you guys a photo rather than the usual quote for this Wednesday Wisdom. You might have already seen this photo, it’s been circulating social media for awhile now, but I recently came across it again and couldn’t not share it!

As someone who has changed a lot over the years,  I just wanted to remind you guys to not be afraid of change. Honestly, I think one of the most detrimental things we can do for our own personal development is cling to labels that we have either given ourselves or that others have enforced on us. Forget the labels. Figure out what makes you tick and the person you would like to become. Reflect on why you do the things you do and decide if it’s for you or for the approval of others. Don’t let others dictate who you are or your self worth. Ground yourself in your values and beliefs. Try new things. Find the lessons within each experience life throws your way. Build a life that makes you happy. Most importantly, embrace change and grow, grow grow.

Anyways, I’m off to bed now. I have a big day of uni classes tomorrow (and I’m still catching up on uni work that was deleted when my laptop crashed *cry*), but I hope you are all having a wonderful week and if not, there’s always time to turn it around! You’ve got this! I have more posts on their way so I will talk to you all very soon 🙂 xx… View Post

Monday Update

THIS WEEK // Happy Monday, guys! I’ve actually had such a productive Monday, I love it. There’s something about a new week and a new month that makes me excited. Anyways, I thought I would do another quick check-in whilst my next post is on it’s way. This week will consist of the usual – renovations, study and blogging. In addition, I am going to sneak in a little time to work on one of my little projects; I might even be able to share it with you guys this week, so stay tuned!

UNI// Uni has now officially started back and it’s mixed emotions – on one hand I’m so excited about the fact that it’s my last semester in my degree but on the other hand I’m not looking forward to the long days of study and assessment. I’ve been back for one week and I already have assessment due – why?! However, I am happy about the fact that there is quite a lot of nutrition based subjects this semester (as opposed to just straight chemistry or biology) so I should have lots to share with you guys over the next couple of months. Yay!

HEALTH // So, this weekend that just passed consisted of Ryan and I having a Game of Thrones marathon because neither of us had ever watched it before (crazy, I know) and what came with it was a whole lot of indulging. Like, a whole lot. By the end of the weekend I noticed that I started to feel a little bad about it. And then I remembered to practice what I preach. So, if you have also indulged a little too much over the weekend, here’s a pep talk… It’s what you do most days that count; a weekend of indulgence will not undo all your hard work. A healthy mindset towards food is just as important as the food you eat. I had a great weekend with the people I love and that’s all that matters. Now that the weekend’s over I can get back to a healthier routine – no biggie!… View Post

Monday Update

Hiii friends! Ok so every now and then I’m now going to do these little life update for those of you that are interested! I don’t know about you guys, but I like to actually get to know the person behind the blog. Seeing as I’ve wanted to make this blog a little more personal as well I thought it would be the perfect little addition 🙂

LIFE // I’m currently on my winter break from uni – YAY. So life has included catching up on things I had to postpone during exams, renovating, preparing for a trip, and working on projects (which you should hopefully see very soon ahhhh). I also had my friend’s hens party and wedding the past two weeks; she’s the first one of my high school friends to get married so that was pretty cool! Actually all the photos above are from her Hens weekend 🙂

Anyways, this week Ryan and I are going on a little adventure for his birthday and I am SO freakin’ excited. Although we’ve travelled a fair bit together, we’ve always been with family and/or friends, which is still awesome, but this will be our first time travelling together just the two of us! Although I’m going to leave it a surprise for now, you will soon see where we’re going because I will be blogging, snapping and instagraming it all. Here’s a hint: we’re staying in Australia but we’re going somewhere much colder with mountains, waterfalls and snow 😉

THOUGHTS // You might have noticed if you read this blog post that this year I felt as though I was in a little bit of a funk. And not a funk that lasts a few days but a funk that lasts a few weeks and gradually turns into months. That kind of lingering funk. … View Post

A Little Life Update

Hey, hi, hello. Remember me?! I know, it’s been a little while since my last post. An entire month I think? (*cry*). I’m sorry!! I get so restless when I can’t post on here, I miss it! But don’t worry, I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth and I have so much exciting stuff planned. I CANNOT WAIT.

Buuuuut, basically, the main reason I haven’t been posting lately on here or my socials is because uni has taken over my life. I’m now even starting to dream about exams and lab reports haha. The final year of my degree is shaping up to be even more challenging than I expected! However, my hardest exam was completed yesterday (YAY) and I only have two more to go for this semester with my last one being next Thursday. I am sooo freakin’ excited. … View Post

Daisy Dukes and D&M’s

Hi friends!

Sorry for being a little quiet on the blog this past week but I have good reasons, I promise: 1) uni started back and 2) I’ve been busy working on my little project I keep hinting about which I cannot wait to show you guys! I must say though, this project is taking up much more time than I expected, but I’m sure it will all be worth it in the end. And of course when I start working on something, I tend to fixate on it and forget about my other responsibilities haha, so I’m trying to find more balance now that uni has started back.

So, as you could imagine, for the last few days I’ve been a lil’ bit boring; I’ve been glued to my computer working/studying or in a lab lol. BUT, last weekend I did go down to the coast to where Ryan lives (unfortunately we’ve always lived about an hour away from each other) and shocker, we went on a little sunrise adventure early Sunday morning. On the drive down to the beach we were a little unsure as to whether or not it would be worth it because as the beach drew near, so did gloomy rain clouds! Call me crazy, but I thought the rain clouds added a little something extra. They made it more interesting; beautiful, even.

Perhaps it’s just the long week talking here, but I like to think that goes for us as people too. … View Post
