I am now on holidays for 10 days; woo hooooooo!

Tomorrow we’re starting our road trip that will lead us up the NSW coast to Byron Bay, which is the cutest & most beautiful seaside town with the Eastern most point of Australia.

After a full week of back-to-back visitors and a hideous workload, I was really happy to have a full day to myself.

I ran errands, ate brunch out, did a wee bit of shopping and generally just had a great day by myself!


Perfect Sydney weather! Hope Byron is this good!


Something from the latest Frankie magazine.


Coffee at my fave local cafe.


My adorable coffee date; Harley.


I’m quitting sugar! If you haven’t read this book by Sarah Wilson or another book called Sweet Poison by David Gillespie, you need to go out and find yourself a copy of both life changing books. Highly recommended.


My only regret is that I wasn’t born with more fingers!


I’ll leave you with this gorgeous quote from King Lear;
‘Take joy in the mystery of things,
as though we were the spies of gods.’
~ Shakespeare

Happy Thursday!
