June Favourites

This year is really flying by – how is it July already?! The weather has been pretty terrible and wintery, so the heaters have been on, which always makes my skin so dry! So unsurprisingly, two of my favourites this month are for combatting dry skin and lips! Once again, I’m trying to buy less and work through my existing collection. Which has meant rediscovering a lot of old favourites.

Little Joys: Exercising Outside


There is nothing like getting outside and exercising to brighten your day. Being outside always makes me feel just a little better. I especially like going for interesting walks. I’ve also been doing a little bike riding lately, but my butt gets SO sore!

5 Things I Would Like to Do By the End of the Year

It’s July 1st today  – okay, okay… So it’s not technically July 1st in Australia anymore, but it is still the 1st somewhere, right?!   We are at the half-way point of the year, so it seemed like an appropriate time to reflect on how this year is going, a sort of ‘mid year resolutions’ if you will.

Little Joys: A good cup of tea


I really enjoy having a good cup of tea. I usually drink bagged tea, because I find that it is a lot more convenient than loose-leaf tea. That is, until I bought this amazing tea for one teapot/teacup duo. I recently stayed with my sister, and while I was there, I used one of her individual teapot/teacups. I am in LOVE! Not only is it absolutely gorgeous, but it is also incredibly practical. It’s lead to me trying more interesting teas as well. I got this one from T2, an Australian tea boutique that is starting to make waves overseas as well. I’m sure there are tonnes of other places you can get these sort of teapots, but the T2 ones are really well made and I think that the patterns are beautiful!

Book Club: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr


I’m back with another book club! First, let me say that I love, love, LOVE this book – 10/10! It is honestly my favourite book in years. All the Light We Cannot See follows the stories of two young people as they grow up through World War Two. Yes, I know that stories about World War Two are so common these days, but bear with me. This is not your traditional World War Two novel. It isn’t written for shocks, or to make you cry, it is just two peoples stories, written in a very thoughtful and interesting way.
