my year so far


Making: Weekly trips to the South Freo Farmers market for delicious salted caramel and custard donuts and organic coffee. The best way to spend a Sunday morning.

Cooking: Homemade burgers - Matt and I both love these as they are such a quick and easy, delicious dinner! As long as you go easy on the cheese and sauces these are also semi-healthy and you can always trade the bun for lettuce if you are counting calories.

Drinking: Red wine - the ultimate Winter treat. This weekend I'm heading down south to WA's wine region and I can't wait to visit all the stunning wineries and taste test until I'm all wined out!

Reading: I recently finished The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins and loved it. This book is right up my alley and has all the elements of a perfect read - suspense, romance, sympathy and murder.

Wanting: More time in the day to potter around our new home, organise and clean!

Looking: For inspiration to help me do up our outdoor alfresco area. We love to entertain and want to make sure we turn our little outdoor patio area into a comfortable and cosy haven.

Playing: With all of our new gadgets - why do they make technology so difficult to navigate these days!

Deciding: Whether I want a second coffee to get me through this freezing day ...  #firstworldproblems

Wishing: Life was slightly slower placed so I could stop to smell the roses and enjoy each minute!

Enjoying: The small things - a good cup of tea, a bubble bath and fresh flowers.

Waiting: For our wedding - only six months to go now! I can't wait to marry the love of my life.

Liking: That twenty minutes in the morning before I hop out of bed where I get to scroll through Instagram and check out my favourite blogs.

Wondering: What life has in store for me in the next few years.

Loving:  The burgers from Short Order Burger Company at The Mantle pop-up-shop in Fremantle. Seriously the best burgers you will ever taste - so bad but so good.

Watching: The new season of True Detective - I can't wait to catch up on this week's episode (which came out last night)

Hoping: For sunshine-y days ahead.

Needing: A new classic black blazer for work - any suggestions on where I should look? I think I will try Zara first.

Smelling: The Leaves candle from Bath and Body Works. I stockpiled a few of these last time I was in the states and can't wait to grab a few more when we head to New York for our honeymoon.

Wearing: Scarves and coats. This Perth weather is crazy at the moment and we are experiencing freezing temperatures! I can't live without a big cosy scarf and coat.

Following: Interior bloggers and instagrammers - at the moment I am loving The Decorista.

Feeling: Content. Life is good!

Admiring: My wonderful husband-to-be. He is so great, no matter how late he gets home from work/football he always pitches in with the jobs and helps me out. Some night he even sends me to bed so I can sleep while he finishes cleaning up.

Buying: Groceries. Our food bill seems never-ending but I guess this is one of the joys of moving out into your own place.

Bookmarking: Wedding cakes and invitations from Style Me Pretty. These are the two elements of my wedding I still need to decide on and I can't stop pinning inspiration.

Disliking: Working full time. Oh how I would love one extra day off a week so I could catch up on housework. Although truth be told, I'd probably waste most of the day having coffee dates, leisurely strolls and catching up on trashy TV shows!

Opening: Deliveries as a result of my online shopping habit! There is nothing better than the suspense of opening a package that has been delivered to you and not knowing what is inside. I love it.
