After a BIG year of launches, projects, and most recently – seemingly non-stop adventures of the travelling kind – it’s so wonderful today to be sat back at my little studio desk in Adelaide, with a strong black coffee in hand, wearing my pyjamas (it’s 2pm) and burrow away on a little creative project just because. Ah, sweet release. I’ve missed days and space to create in freedom like this.

So hey you, I want you to know I’m so utterly grateful for your support this year. I know the word ‘grateful’ gets tossed around so often, but seriously. It has meant everything to me, to have had you here. Following, commenting, attending an event, purchasing something from my collection, a love note left on Instagram – or just a silent reader (hello!) It’s meant everything.
Life feels an eternity away from this time last year, when I arrived back from London in a very different headspace (if you’re new around here, read this article to get the gist). It’s taken a year, but I feel strong. I got lost, I got found. I chased and launched my dream. And now I’m here, working harder than I ever thought possible, and loving every moment.


So, you know that quote, wherever you are, be all there?

I’m calling  on that mantra right now. Full tilt.

Just a few weeks out from my collection launch of WILD HEARTS, I’m honing in all of my energy on bringing this collection to life in the most beautiful, fully present way I possibly can, and so I need to take a brief hiatus from blogging in order to focus my best energy.

Because, you know. Bringing a big dream to life calls for full immersion + utter devotion.

Back with you on the flip side with a line up of (some pretty incredible) rainbow chasers, coffee guides, travels, adventures (of course) – and general blogging goodness soon.

Over + out (for now!)

Claude Monet famously said “I must have flowers, always and always,” – and he was obviously onto something. Flowers say what words cannot. They tell joy, love, sympathy, stories. Flowers make days.

Looking for some beautiful flowers to gift? (even if it’s for YOU – I won’t tell.) In no particular order, here’s your go-to list of 10 great florists and floral artists in Adelaide, ranging from established florists of distinction, to hill-dwelling garden growers, and flower fanciers who sell their creations at local markets.

They are all beautiful options to call upon for different reasons and occasions – and they are all in the business of flowers for the sheer love of their craft.


Can somebody please explain to me – how is it the end of April already?! This means it is time to release our fourth and final #bloglovefest offering for our April Collective Celebration of Self Care. But don’t worry, Jaclyn and I have more themed #BlogLoveFest activities in store for you yet, over the rest of 2015. We’re having too much fun bringing you these goodies to keep it to just one month!

Today, our printable is :: Keep Going, You’ve Got This. Encouraging you to send you onwards + forwards, in a gentle, loving + inspired way.


Inspired by my beautiful friend Leah + her recent visit to Iceland, I dug out my own travel journal from Iceland, circa June 2013. Amazing memories flooded back and I’m inspired to share this writing with you now. Let’s step back in time, to this fascinating country that stole my heart. Almost two years on, I’m still yearning to go back. //


Did you hear? Last week, Jaclyn @ Blog Society and I announced an exciting collaborative venture for April – we’ve launched a global social media initiative in the name of wellbeing. We’ve called it: a Collective Celebration of Self-Care. And, it’s time to reveal our quote for week two!

Our message this week is wildly simple, pretty potent and also, kinda vital :: LIVE WELL.


Well. What a powerful April it has been, so far. Jaclyn and I can hardly believe the sharing of stories and thoughts on self care that have been offered so far with our #BlogLoveFest movement. It goes without saying, we are awestruck and deeply humbled.

So – thank you. Thank you for showing up and being real.

Today, we release our third printable – and this week’s message is a good one. SLOW  IT DOWN. (Amen, right?!)


Over the next few weeks, I am T H R I L L E D to be teaming up with my wonderful friend Jac @ Blog Society, to bring you a special, collaborative project – involving us, and YOU. We’re launching a global social media initiative and a weekly series of printable self-care cards dedicated to helping bloggers and creative souls move focus away from the to-do lists, the stress, the self-doubt and instead turn our community focus inward – towards our own health, wellness and wellbeing.

We’re calling it: a Collective Celebration of Self-Care.
