Practicing Self-Love When You’re Feeling Insecure

It takes someone incredibly insightful to recognise that I am not a very secure and self-loving person. On the outside, I’m this enthusiastic, overwhelmingly positive and confident being who loves to spread love and joy to others, yet on my worst days I’m overly-critical, jarringly negative and hurtful to myself. On my best days I…

What Got Me Into Blogging?

The other night I went out for an amazing work evening of Thai food and the ballet, and we got talking about my blog and my new YouTube channel. My lovely and talented workmate Deanne (seriously, check out her various music ventures – WHIM, Ida Lune and Pacific Heights) asked me what got me into blogging, and it made me…

Ghostbusters 2016 – Why You Should See It

Who ya gonna call? I’ll be upfront, I’m not of the Ghostbusters generation. I’m definitely of the Disney Princess and Pixar 90’s monopoly, though I must have seen Ghostbusters as a kid as I knew the theme song and knew exactly how to respond when someone asked, “who ya gonna call?”. I was also vaguely…

Failure Leads to Success / Weird is Bankable

I got my results back for my Masters on Monday. The great news is that I can now say that I am a Master of Architecture (Professional), fully qualified to go and learn how to be an architect (wait, didn’t I already do that? Haha, nope. Three more years of professional work, dude. THREE MORE…

Waiting, Waiting, Waiting…

I’m dubbing this year “The Limbo Year”. The year in which I wait around for university offers and grades, not wanting to have too much hope, but also not wanting to despair too much either. The year started so optimistically. I had submitted my thesis early and had skipped off for a holiday expecting to…

15 Signs You’re Getting Older

You pick up new and exciting hobbies. Like knitting. Or adult colouring in. The Snapchats you get on a Friday night from your friends are either of them in bed surrounded by cats with face-masks on, eating pizza and watching Friday night TV or playing board games. You go out to a club and feel like the…

An EPIC Update

Hello, my lovely little readers, I’m back! With the most epic of updates just for you xoxo Yes, I know, I’m sorry for not posting since Christmas. I’m sorry I didn’t let anyone know where I was and what I was up to, but I figure you would work out that it was due to…

23 for 23 – How Did I Go?

Hello beautiful people! I hope you are all exceptionally well. I have been a very bad blogger as of late, and for that, I apologise. Love you, baes ❤ If you can remember back to the end of last year, I made a list of 23 goals to accomplish for my 23rd year on this…

Little Life Changing Moments

Hello my friends and welcome back! Wondering where I’ve been? I spent the past month wrangling with cardboard, tape, paint, a big ass camera and a mountain of digital images in order to curate a final presentation; capping off 8 months of intensive design. The presentation went better than I could have ever hoped and…

Pause For A Moment

Hello team! Apologies for the radio silence on my end. I have been SO busy. Super busy. I need to stop posting for the next few weeks; to wrap my head around my uni work, PhD proposals and conference paper writing. I am a crazy busy girl! I love this little space on the net,…

Learning – A Mental Health Update

I’m sure many of you would have picked up on the fact that the past few months haven’t been great for me. They’ve been pretty miserable in all honesty. And not because my life has been bad, in fact – my life has been pretty awesome as of late – but because my depression and…

Obsessions

GREETINGS FRIENDS!! Oh man. So, this week has been fairly exhausting. I don’t know if anyone is interested, but at university this week I did the following things: started laying out my thesis document, started drawing graphics of the wall that I built, had a very important meeting and wrote my abstract, preface, acknowledgements and…
