Stop & Smell the Roses

Every time I cross the Storybridge in Lancelot (my silver lancer), there’s a feel good song blasting on the radio, my windows are rolled down and the stretched city landscape rushes past in a blur of tall buildings and metallic colours. Looking at these photos transports me to this really special space in my mind where I’m flying across the bridge but in slow motion, caught in the moment with ample time to stop and smell the roses.
We live in a fast-paced environment, constantly connected to our phones and squeezing as much activity as we can into the shortest amount of time. With Spring comes the opportunity to take a step back, breathe deeply and just chiillll.

Cast me in a Ferris Bueller remake

Cast me in a Ferris Bueller remake. 

Ditching lectures, uniforms and any hint of responsibility in lieu of impulsive adventures in the 80s sounds like a jazzy time to me. If you were to cast yourself in a Ferris Bueller remake, would you visit an art museum, borrow a Ferrari, eat at an over-priced restaurant or become the star attraction in a glitzy parade? You won’t know until you try it, and for when you do, here’s how to make the most of your day off: Continue reading “Cast me in a Ferris Bueller remake”

Coffee Coats

So I am SUPER EXCITED about this lil’ blog post. Mainly because I can’t wait to show off this coat; I’m completely obsessed and wear it every chance I get, even if it’s just to drive to work. Speaking of my job as a waitress, over the hols I was earning $ nearly every day, so used the quiet hours to learn how to work the bar. You’re now looking at a trained barista who can mix & pour every drink under the sun- from iced chocolates to lattes, kahluas and short blacks. I love pouring caramel-coloured coffee into milk that’s been steamed to resemble wet paint, hearing the whir of the grinding coffee beans and swirling whipped cream into a ’50s-style milkshake glass. Everything’s coming up roses! Continue reading “Coffee Coats”

Attitude of Gratitude

When I realised that my first semester break from university would be two months long (yes, you read correctly: two MONTHS), I couldn’t imagine what I would do with all of that free time. Turns out, I spent most of those long weeks watching movies on my laptop, sleeping, spending money on food, catching up with friends and working double-shifts in order to save up for… well, food.

One thing I did do every day was practice gratitude. When I was 12, my uncle gave me a book about the law of attraction which taught me the importance of being appreciative. Since then, nearly every day I catch myself reeling off a list of 5 things I’m thankful about. It’s a sweet little habit that really helps to put all the not-so-pleasant things into perspective.

As today was my first day back at university and getting into the groove of things, I decided to share my ‘attitude of gratitude’ and put into writing the top 10 small things/events that made my autumn-winter break pretty wonderful.  Continue reading “Attitude of Gratitude”
