Louise @ Floralovely Calligraphy

Recently Robbie and I managed to escape Sydney for three days and visit his lovely family in their beautiful new home near Brisbane. It's always amazing when we manage to take time away from work as we're both self confessed workaholics. Robbie's sister Louise is a super talented calligrapher, who in the past year has grown a loyal following. She is commissioned to do wedding invitations, place settings and is always booked for months in advance, not only does she work on this kind of project but she also hosts workshops where you can learn calligraphy!

Quick and Easy Banana Muffins

Since relaunching this blog, and wanting to have this space as a representation of where I am now and what I like to read, one of the things I've really been looking to post about is baking and cooking. I really enjoy spending time in the kitchen and since I now live with my always hungry carpenter boyfriend, I have even more excuse to get creative in the kitchen. So this is my first recipe post and my kitchen in our rented flat is far less than photogenic so bare with me! I've kept it simple this time with a recipe my boyfriend loves, banana muffins!

Instant Love #1

Ever since I got my first polaroid camera years ago I have loved the instant gratification of clicking to take an image and seeing the little image pop out the top. I think the poor quality old school film vibe of the image paired with the 90s chunky style camera means you just can't go wrong. I now use the Fujifilm Instax 200 camera, but now that polaroid film is readily available again I think I will grab my polaroid camera when I'm back in the UK. Here is a collection of images I've taken on my instax in the past few months, please check out my flickr and website to see more of my photography work!

July Favourites

July really has just flown by for me, I can hardly remember what I did or where the time went. My boyfriend and I have a couple of trips coming up, we're spending a long weekend with his family in Queensland next weekend and then we have an almost 3 week trip to the UK at the end of September, so I'm really trying to save for London shopping. With that in mind July was really about saving money so I can hit Oxford Street in October.

Style Classics #1 Birkenstocks

Since moving to Australia and only bringing 3 pairs of shoes with me, I have expanded my somewhat pathetic shoe collection quite extensively. Birkenstocks were one of the first new pairs of shoes I purchased over 6 months ago now, first in white then more recently in black and I wear them so much. They really are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned and I love the way they look too.
