My Bucket List

After my Mid-Year Review post last month I got to thinking about what I want to achieve in life both now and in the future. I decided to compile a little bucket list in one place because for years I have had countless bucket lists all spread out in multiple notebooks. Below is a list…

DIY | Pressed Wildflowers

As autumn approaches and the wonderful wildflowers begin to wither I thought I'd take the opportunity to preserve this bit of spring. Flower pressing is a technique I learnt 12 years ago on a family holiday visiting my Austrian grandparents. I have always had a fascination with flowers and after picking more wildflowers than I…

This Little Wildflower Donated her Hair…

Before the big chop… Today is Thursday 03.08.2017 and I am about to do something that I have been half dreading and half extremely excited about for quite some time now. Come this evening my long, luscious locks that I have spent the last 5 years growing and nurturing will be 20 centimetres shorter and…

July Favourites

Well, July happened, I think? If you read last week's blog post you'll know that July was a bit of a turning point in the year for me. A lot of things came to an end, or at least a standstill, for the summer and I knew I had a lot of things coming up…

Silly me literally only packed three t-shirts and two summer dresses but then the June heatwave…

Summer Bucket List | 5 Things to do on a Sunny Day

I am in the small percentage of people who actually dread when summer rolls around. The Queensland summers that I've experienced for the last 15 years always brought humidity, constant 30+ degree temperatures, sun burns, insects and constant, awful sweaty feeling. Since Australian summers are completely different to European ones I was interested in seeing…
