I've been lucky enough to meet some really lovely creative ladies since moving to Sydney, and everyone has been very welcoming! I messaged Emily a while ago now, asking to take her photo as she has a very unique and colourful style and a crazy sock collection to match, I was really happy that she agreed. Emily runs her own business 'Wanting Collection' where she sources socks from Japan and sells them to shops and also at Newtown Market every Saturday! I love a female business woman and especially one who sells crazy socks, Emily is now making her own jewellery from things like plastic foods and dolls heads! If you love everything colourful and kitsch you really must follow her on instagram!

Please excuse this poor excuse for an outfit post, I really wanted to shoot this outfit as it really sums up what I wear on a day to day basis, but I'm currently going through a bit of a hair transition and I really don't like how my hair's looking in photos at the moment. Anyway, I reach daily for a pretty much black, white and grey colour palette, playing with textures and shapes. I know what I like and what works for me and I just love monochrome looks.

These days I really appreciate little things that can instantly brighten up your day, and I don't depend on retail therapy for that moment of instant gratification. Being conscious of my positivity and trying to be kind every day has really changed my life in the last year or so, and the smallest of things can put a smile on my face. This weekend I unexpectedly had both days off work due to a mistake on the roster, I really made the most of my weekend despite awful weather and things not going at all to plan!

For me, home is never really home without the pitter patter of tiny furry feet. I've left my beloved cats, Pebbles and Barney, at home with my parents in Devon so here in Australia I'd really been noticing the void with no furry friends around. It didn't take us long to decide to take home Mr Biggs, he's an 8 week old Netherland Dwarf cross Miniature Rex bunny. He has a milky coffee coloured coat with grey front feet and a white spot on his nose with grey around it. He really is the most beautiful bunny I have ever seen.

I have spent very little money on make-up and skincare throughout the last 8 or so months. However I think skincare is really important and with a lack of routine and just general neglect my skin was beginning to suffer. I had heard a lot about Jurlique on blogs and social media and since it's an Australian brand and I now live here in Australia I was really keen to give it a try. I also love their ethics of natural products that aren't tested on animals!

This is my first favourites post, as I'm trying to get back into blogging regularly I think posts like this help me with inspiration and give me recurring posts I can plan for. I really enjoyed thinking of what I've been enjoying this month and looking back over the month in general. Life is pretty busy at the moment and things haven't been the easiest recently, but positive thinking and the addition of a new furry family member who I will blog about soon, has really helped me with my happiness.
