this is far too good not to post. Mad Men Season Five begins again soon and Matt and I are frothing to see it. It  has been a long and arduous wait...



are these not the sweetest iphone covers? made by a US company, you can choose between Bamboo, Walnut and Sapele (a cool wood). Good for the environment, eco friendly, durable etc. I reckon Matt would love the camera ones. I actually go through the biggest iphone cover phases. Every 5 minutes, I want to change it. Oh well feast you eyes. Find them HERE 



double posting today- quite the occasion oui oui. So here's my face in Cosmo Bride! They just sent me it today- apparently it goes on sale today. It's so weird to see my face somewhere but I'm so stoked all the lovely girls that put my face together on my big day get some publicity! x


These are some of the treats I got for my 23rd last week and am I loving each and every one!

My sweet NZ friend Anna sent this little flower treat with the postman. love dainty little rings!
oh my goodness. this is actually becoming a daily necessity. Contemplating ordering a years worth of
Loving Earths Cacao chocolate from HERE

New pumped up kicks.. Boots by Therapy

Another welcome gift from a friend. Loose tea makes every cup worth the wait.
And the Tummy Tea is packed with peppermint which is my all time favourite.

and just for kicks, this is us standing dorkingly in front our house before we went out last night for birthday dinner.
 i found this dress at a random asian store for 20bucks. steal!



I just got shown this by a friend of ours who's just finished doing a bunch of commercials for Century 21 and we pop up! That couple having a wee wedding dance happens to be us! x



had a very reflective sort of day. when I get in one of those moods, it's often not the most beneficial thing as I start reminiscing about my entire life. but I was flicking through old pieces of writing and found this. I think I sound very young in it but I still identify with most of it. I remember I wrote it during a season of change and lots of people were coming in and out of my life and it all felt a bit much.


today i was thinking

thinking. how crazy and confusing it is that sometimes we never get to say the things we want to say the most, to the people that matter to us, the most.
sometimes we dont even realise. all the things that are mixed up within us that are deep. and running around trying to get out. things that have made us who we are, what we are. in moments, in thoughts, in memories, in experiences, in love.

the parts and pages of who we are that sometimes feel too hard to let anyone else see, but they are the things that so often are crying to be on display, to be heard and appreciated.... the deepest hurts, the hardest memories, the feared words, the cruelest experiences that we hope will dissolve or grow gentler in time...maybe they are there, so i may learn the bravery to conquer the fear of revealing those things which are dearest and closest and most fragile to my heart.

sometimes i wanna run away to Greece and forget that life is real. and feeling and crazy.
to stop breathing and hold the moments cos the fear of the unknown seems too overbearing. yet too much of me longs to keep running and fighting and dancing all at once. too take flight and continue to trust in the knowledge and faith of my foundness and its purpose. sometimes it all feels terribly complicated. sometimes it is, sometimes there's no explanation.

i dont wanna miss the adventure cos i stood frozen in the fragilities of my heart.
in all of the wonders and fears and memories and love can the loudest truths be found.



today I turned 23. Holy schomoly I know. I feel like I was honestly 18 yesterday. A naive little NZ girl moving over to Sydney... I think it was a wise choice to marry Matty- not only is he the best but being 26 means whenever I have an old age wave, I just compare myself to him- cheeky I know.

Last night to celebrate, a few friends and I went to see 'Like Crazy', the sweetest wee indie film. Filmed on a Canon 7D and shot on the cheap, it has the loveliest acting..and a confronting look at how tricky and wonderful love can be all at once. 

and then this morning Matty surprised me with a treasure load of presents including maroon jeans, dark chocolate and baileys. true love in all directions. x




Pioneers! O Pioneers!
by Walt Whitmam

Come my tan-faced children,
Follow well in order, get your weapons ready,
Have you your pistols? have you your sharp-edged axes?
Pioneers! O pioneers!

For we cannot tarry here,
We must march my darlings, we must bear the brunt of danger,
We the youthful sinewy races, all the rest on us depend,
Pioneers! O pioneers!.....
All the past we leave behind,
We debouch upon a newer mightier world, varied world,
Fresh and strong the world we seize, world of labor and the march,
Pioneers! O pioneers!...
Till with sound of trumpet,
Far, far off the daybreak call--hark! how loud and clear I hear it wind,
Swift! to the head of the army!--swift! spring to your places,
Pioneers! O pioneers!
OO I am loving this Walt Whitman poem- makes me want to go take on the world, seize the day etc etc... I've taken the liberties of showing only my favourite verses but read the whole thing HERE. You might recognise this from this Levi ad. They make the greatest ads!
