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…

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…

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.   I tend to get this way…

Spring Bucket List

Despite the influx in hay fever, spring is probably my favourite season. In Australia the start of spring means that it isn’t long until my birthday in October but I'm currently in Germany so spring begins in March.
