Dear L,

Glad to hear that you succumb almost as easily as me to those small offerings in the check out line.

It is warming up in Queensland, and not only because the season finale of How to Get Away With Murder was just released. The sun is also contributing. In honour of the weather, and our recent tropical cyclone, I decided to get out and about in the rainforest, with the prints to match. Read More

Dear L, Your backpack is rockin’, and glad to hear your first day at uni was just as swell. My Wednesday has been more-than-usually active. For starters, I finally got around to charging my Fitbit Flex, which is both really good and really bad. Really good, because it makes me work really hard at being healthy.

Dear B,
I am about to re-educate myself  on Manic-Mondays after looking at my uni timetable (goodbye social life). However just receiving my enormous and countless textbooks that I “apparently” need every day, I was daunted by the thought of carrying endless books with me everywhere, and essentially look like a klutz. Therefore, going back to my primary school mentally, a back-pack was in order.

Dear L,

You truly do predict all the trends. . .  braided beards included (I’ll admit here that I was wrong, click to see why).

With LFW just underway and NYFW just behind us, the blogging sphere has been going a little crazy, and in line with this week being non-stop posts, I was reminded of Manic Mondays. You may remember that last year I kept exhaustive to-do lists, some which were day-based, some week based, and some ‘miscellaneous’. On the weekly list, I used to give each day a descriptor, based on its events. Mondays were, without exception, manic. Read More

Dear L,

I may or may not have told you that, of my many paper related vices, I am addicted to quirky travel guides. Before I left for London, I decided to pull all of my London guides out of the bookshelf and make a little bucket list of things to do whilst there. Promptly burying myself under a mountain of publications, I decided that the bucket list may take several trips, not just the two weeks I had. (Cue that Grizzly Bear song)

That said, I got (get) around (Cue that Beach Boys song), and am here to impart with you the creme de la crop of London’s nooks and crannies (as discovered thus far) in a mini, quirky guide books of my own. Let’s call it

Dear B,

In my part of the world, (Sydney, Australia) it is officially half-way through summer. Therefore, I am unable to fathom the need of a leather jacket just yet, however, come Winter, a whole another story may be told.
This week, I wanted to talk food. Yes, a great topic, if I may say so myself. Granola, is one of my favourite, easy/healthy breakfast (or any meal) options, and this is my (partially) Famous Granola Recipe.
