3 Ways I De-Stress

Last month I just felt tense. There was no particular reason for why I felt that way, possibly just an accumulation of things going on in my life at that moment and the past few months of change and craziness finally having a chance to catch up with me.ย ย  I tend to get this way…

Collective Summer Clothing Haul…

When I was packing my suitcase for Germany I decided to prioritise winter woollies over summer clothes thinking that no European summer could be as hot as the humid summers in Queensland and that jeans and t-shirts should suffice.

A Little Mother’s Day Mention for my Mama
