THE BROKEN BUTTERFLY

If I wasn’t amazed by the power of google before, I am amazed now. The other day, Mum and I noticed that a beautiful big Monarch butterfly had been sitting on the lawn for two days. When we examined her more closely, she had a broken wing (I think it was a female because it […]

YOU ARE WHAT YOU LOVE, NOT WHAT LOVES YOU

The other day my bestie and I were chatting about how different this world would be if people were unaffected by others’ opinions. Who would we be if we didn’t need acceptance, approval and love from our peers? If there was no fear of rejection. It made me think of a quote from the 2002 […]

STUDIO 54

MONEY SAVERS – PERFECT PLUNGER COFFEE

The other day I totted up how much my coffee is costing a week (I buy it every morning). It was a pretty serious expense. As I am currently in the final couple of weeks of my PhD and income-less, I can’t just be throwing dollars around like a baller. Plus, as an ex-barista, I’m […]

MOTHERHOOD

Image care of To Wander and Seek Photography As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child. This quote popped into my head recently when I was talking to a friend over a glass of red about the choice to have a baby, or to not. Some women just know. They feel […]

THE MET GALA 2015 – CHINA: THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

Here are a few of my fav looks from the Met Gala 2015. The theme was China: Through the Looking Glass. These dresses are what I dreamed of as a kid – they are fairytale costumes. My ultimate favourites were Georgia May Jagger in Gucci and Justin Bieber looking amazing in Balmain. This red carpet […]
