Sunshine Coasting…

On Monday I posted a bit of an ode to the city I live in…a farewell, of sorts. I had a lot of people asking if I was feeling nostalgic or sad about leaving and to be honest, while there’s absolutely a little of both, there’s also a […]

The Sydney Quiz…

I was flicking through old blog posts the other day looking for inspiration and found this one I’d originally written after Angela Savage posted a (melbourne) quiz on her blog. It was a sort of a homage to the quiz that appeared in the glossy mag that used […]

That’s a Wrap: January 7, 2017

  That’s the first week of 2017 done and dusted. Just. Like. That. As a week it was quite unremarkable, and I’ve had to really stretch my mind to come up with something even halfway interesting – let alone a few somethings halfway interesting. As for decent pics? […]

2017: The Word

Unless you’re new to this blog or have been living under a rock, we’re moving to the Sunshine Coast this year. It’s a mega sea-change that’s exciting and scary all at the same time. How to find a word for 2017 that encapsulates all of that? I applied […]

2017: The Resolutions

I’m partial to a new start, and of all the new starts, a new year is the biggest. It’s oh so shiny and clean. And full of possibility – which, just saying, is possibly (get it?) my favourite word in life. It’s why, even though I declare with […]

That’s a Wrap…

  Firstly…happy new year! It’s felt, over the last week, as though I’m the only one in Sydney not on holidays. I know that’s not true, but that’s how it’s felt. Oh, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing either – in fact, it’s a bit of the […]

The track to Mt Kosciusko...a lot of the year felt a tad like this!

2016: The Closing Ceremony…

For many of us, 2016 was tough. Aside from being the year the music died (OMG George Michael – I still can’t comprehend that), it was also the year that things that shouldn’t have ever happened somehow did – both on a global and a local scale. I’m […]

2016: A Year In Pictures

Ok, this is one of the toughest posts I’ll write all year – my favourite pics for 2016. I could take the easy way out and leave you with the best 9 from instagram, but what attracted likes on instagram in 2016 didn’t align with those photos that […]

2016: A Year in Books…

  Inspired by Angela Savage’s bingo challenge post from this morning, I figured it was a good opportunity to look at my own reading history for the year. Angela based her post on a set of “bingo” categories, but given that I’m shocking with categories, here’s my 2016 between […]
