Loving you: Embrace it.

Self love. A simple concept; however, it’s a paradoxical one in a society like ours. We know it’s irrational to poke fun at our own body; proding a lump here, squeezing a roll there, and being horrified at some cellulite. Please try to police these snowball judgements(◠﹏◠✿). I know it’s sometimes hard to remember; but,…

Loving you: A journey to happiness.

Loving yourself may seem like a vain concept, but it’s important. The mind is incredibly powerful, and how we think about ourselves influences our lives. I decided to talk about it in a mini series, as I value its importance and impact immensely. Happiness often is portrayed like a rainbow; transfixing and oh so beautiful,…

Ode to the humble mango.

I do a little happy dance when mangoes come back into season. ( ノ^ω^)ノ゚ I’ve adored mangoes for as long as I can remember… ** I used to live next to girl, who had a giant mango tree in her yard up in sunny Queensland. We’d slip effortlessly in and out of the gaps of the…

A piccolo story.

I’ve always been magnetized to writing, poetry, and short stories. Growing up, my mother would read to me. She enchanted me with stories of fiction and fantasy, and coaxed me into the weirdly wonderful world of writing stories. Finding my mum was always easy. Checking the soft leather couch, I’d see her snuggled up, a…

70’s Chinese restaurant dress. (〃^▽^〃)

My grandparents love Chinese food. However, we always end up going to the Chinese restaurant which has managed not only to keep it’s clientele from the 70’s but keep the same classic menu. And I absolutely love that fact. ⌒°(❛ᴗ❛)°⌒ Truth be told, I love the fact so much, I decided play on it. Wearing a…

(V●ᴥ●V) Park larks.

I never quite knew what was going to happen when I took a stroll with Ned. And this day was definitely one of those days. Cows. Three beauties. They decided to venture into the usually very quiet first “paddock”, catching both dog and human quite off guard (in the best way possible). These beautiful ladies must…

Fragile floaty friends. (▰˘◡˘▰)

Walking by the river is always eventful, bursting with flora and fauna of all kinds. The warmth of these beautiful summer days have brought out many, many floating objects. One, including butterflies. I met this little lady today. A female Banks Brown butterfly a.k.a. Heteronympha banksii banksii  She was particularly friendly, floating on over to me, posing…

Disappearing acts. (ᵕ≀ ̠ᵕ )

Okay… So I pulled a Harry Potter and have been hibernating in my invisibility cloak from my blog. But I’m back! And I’m aiming to be a little more consistent. Famous last words, I know. But I have a present for y’all out there. One of my “recipes” (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑ Banana ice-cream *drool* As per usual…

Meet Ned ฅ^•ﻌ•^ฅ my pupperoni.

Ned has popped up on my blog every now and then, so I have decided to dedicate a post to him! (Let’s face it, he’s vair cute) ▽・ェ・▽ノ” Meet Ned. Our family dog of at least 10 years. Occupation(s): Daytime – Old Man By nightfall – Wizard We went to the park today, seeing an array…

Resurfacing + 70’s vibin’. ᵔᴥᵔ

Sorry for dropping off the face of the Earth, Sinbad style. I have been Instagraming though, as it was the only platform I had time for. My taskmaster called “university” was forever knawing at me. It’s all done now (yay!) And lot of wine has been drunk. In celebration, here’s a simple but cute outfit (woo!)  I…

In between two seasons.

This is such a random outfit. I know. But I kinda like it. Seeing as Melbourne normally cannot make up it’s mind about the weather, I like to come prepared for sun rays and cool winds, hence the turtleneck and crochet action I have going on. My dad was kind enough to loan me his…

Zo style breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Using what I received from my CERES box post, I’m making some quick “recipes” to plow through. Breakfast: As per usual, my “recipes” don’t involve a lot of effort, I prefer life as simple as possible. Naturally, toast is normally a go to, minimal effort but great tasting. Win-win. You’ll need: -1/2 Avocado, or more…
