Week 22, 2017

Winter is here.

So, that is it.. Autumn is officially over and Winter has begun.

Ugh – my 3 least favourite months of the year.

As you may have guessed from the title of this blog – I’m a Summer’s girl. I hate the cold. I consider anything below 20deg celsius to be positively freezing. Luckily, I live in a place where our Winters are pretty mild and most days through Winter still feature bucket loads of sunshine – even though its cold.

So here’s to staying in, drinking red wine and hoping these 3 months go by super quick.

ps. This week im focusing on photography. So below are photos from 2 sessions I had – one on Sydney Harbour watching Vivid Lights and one in my backyard with the family. 🙂

The week that was:

This playlist featured on RAGE on Saturday morning. Some great songs here!!
Speaking of RAGE – do you know you can now watch every RAGE playlist from the last 20 years?? No excuse to EVER leave the house now!
My Christmas present this year is sorted!
Long term research has now confirmed that babies born with bigger heads are smarter! ( My Mae must be a genuis then!)
Incredible time-lapse photography
Some great tips for a positive start to your day here. I think we all need a little reminding of this sometimes.
This is the best thing on the internet. ever.

A night on Sydney Harbour


Meg Mac

Meg Mac is one Australian artist ive been following for a while. Her voice is phenomenal.

I first came across her via “Like a Version” on Triple J… the song below. And now she’s just launched her debut album – be sure to check her out! Wonderful Aussie talent.

Backyard Lounging

A morning

We made the most of some sunshine today – amongst the cold – to hang out in our backyard and take in some much needed Vitamin D.

I love these times.

No winter lasts forever, no spring skips it’s turn.

    I hear you on the freezing! Admittedly Brisbane is even milder than Sydney but I’m still in multiple layers shivering! That rage playlist is awesome and so cool that you can listen to them all now! Time for a trip down memory lane. Absolutely love your photos of Vivid. I seriously have been dying to visit one year! Everything looks so beautiful but it seems like I’m always in Sydney just before or after it! Next year I’m doing it! Also love the photos in your backyard. Your little ones are gorgeous and look like they are having a blast soaking in the sun! Some very artistic shots – I particularly like the clouds in the background. Very clever. And googly eyes on inanimate objects is EVERYTHING!

    See you next Sunday 🙂
