Happy Sunday everyone! How’s your weekend going?? I’m spending this weekend with Ryan which is consisting of lots of rest, blogging and night photography adventures (you know, chasing the milkyway, cause everyone does that right?!). Basically I’m doing everything besides what I should be doing: my uni work ha! Anywho, this time last week things were a little bit different, I was at a photoshoot with Bristle & Bones (you might remember them from this post here) and today I’m going to show you what we got up to!
As you have probably already guessed, the shoot was 70’s inspired and I absolutely loved it. The big hair. The velvet. The flares. 70s Perfection. Now let’s discuss the deets.… View Post
Things are gettin’ real spicy over here… And by that I mean I may have developed a slight addiction to Chai Tea; homemade chai tea that is, not the pre-packaged stuff that’s a little more sugar than spice. Coincidentally, this past month in one of my classes at uni we’ve been discussing all things spices and how underrated they are! Not to get all science-y on you, and yes that is now a word (according to me), but although gaining clinical evidence (evidence on how it interacts within the human body) can be super tricky, studies in-vitro (studies that have been performed on isolated cells) have shown spices to have lots of amazing bioactive properties… Basically, things are looking promising, yay! With that said, herbs and spices will be making a regular appearance on my plate, or in this case, mug. So I introduce to you the yummiest and easiest homemade chai tea! … View Post
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
FRIDAY // 14th of July continued..
Hmm, so where were we? Oh yes, that’s right, we were stranded in the Tasmanian bush as darkness approached. Well, plot twist, we didn’t actually end up dying from frostbite like I had envisioned (because, you know, the fact that I’m alive writing this totally didn’t give it away). Instead we calmly went searching for any sign of a slight path or a pink ribbon. Ok, Ryan searched calmly and I may or may not have done a fantastic impersonation of a crazy person. The details aren’t important. I almost wished we had left a trail of breadcrumbs behind us like my mum had suggested (don’t worry, she was kidding… I think) but considering my luck they would have lead to some witch’s candy covered gingerbread doorstep. BUT, lo and behold, we found the freakin’ path. We then proceeded to walk back to the main track as fast as humanly possible. Phew, that was a close one. I nearly kissed the ground in elation (the key word being ‘nearly’ – my better judgement came through just in time). #Blessed. From there we went and got the most amazing pizza (because let’s face it after that ordeal pizza was in order) from a place called Solo Pasta and Pizza and fell asleep later that night watching movies.
SATURDAY // 15th of July
Another big day of waterfalls. Saturday’s agenda consisted of Strickland Falls, Secret Falls (except ironically, this one wasn’t actually a secret), Myrtle Falls and much to my despair, Ryan wanted to give the hidden waterfall from yesterday another go. So we started off at Strickland Falls and once we found the track (tip: about 30 seconds into the track it suddenly stops and you have to cross the shallow water and go up the Little Rock wall) it was only a 2 minute walk to the waterfalls. I’m not sure what amazed me more, the waterfall or the fact that Ryan saw a guy walking around shirtless whilst I shivered in my five layers of thermals. We then headed back to my arch nemesis, the hidden waterfall, whilst it was still early on in the day to give us plenty of time. And you’ll never believe it,… View Post
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
