blog: whatiluv 17 – Duchess Jewellery

I don’t mean to sound materialistic, but sometimes all you need is a little surprise gift to lift your spirits 😉

This happened to me today when I received a STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS handmade necklace from Australian designer Duchess Jewellery.

I was having such a bad week – having split my lip a few days earlier in a really bad fall (insert sooky lala face!) But having something new to touch, hold, wear & get inspired from was definitely the thing that lifted my mood.

Duchess, the owner of the company, crafts each piece uniquely so they’re one of a kind! She puts so much love and effort into the jewellery. Who wouldn’t prefer that over buying mass produced, department store stuff?!

I really love supporting such creative local talent. Duchess is from Townsville in north Queensland, but she’s happy to ship anywhere in Australia. Check her designs out @ www.duchessjewellery.net and @duchess_jewellery on instagram.

Lots of love!! ❤ ❤ ❤

blog: whatiluv 16 – I HEART MELBOURNE

Even though my recent trip to Sydney was SO much fun, I still love my hometown Melbourne more than any other city! So when I stumbled across this Buzzfeed article, it literally made my day 🙂

Melbourne always tops international polls for “Most Livable City” and recently “Friendliest City in the World” and that’s what we’re known for. But some of the pics below spark some healthy comical debate!

We are a great bunch – so while the list may point out some of our flaws, there really is nowhere I’d rather be ❤

Love ya!!! xx

blog: whatiluv 13 – Peter Pan Syndrome

One time in high school, my friend Chris said I reminded him of Phoebe from Friends. Back then, I kinda took offence.

If you didn’t know already, Phoebe’s character is pretty random, a little ditzy and quite frankly, the downright weirdest of the group.

Chris probably knew me the best, because that’s how I am on the inside. My exterior has ever so slightly been subdued by society – eg: the wearing of pants, bras and combing my hair.

But my inner wacky child still rages true, even coming thru on this blog (which clearly has no clear direction and is a jungle of my sporadic train of thought :p)

I can’t foresee myself ever truly growing up, for the following reasons:

1. My bedroom’s clean, but you’re not allowed to move the Hello Kitty stuffed toys off the bed.

2. I get up at 5.30am when it’s freezing, but turn the heating up so my house becomes a sauna.

3. I go to the gym with my friend Sim, but we end up laughing at the leg machines that work your inner thigh.

4. I try to get some work done on my laptop, but end up on the My Shocking Story channel on youtube.

5. I walk my dog, but also use that time to have long conversations with her, getting her opinion on things.

6. I splash out on external hard drives and USBs, but don’t remember to back anything up.

7. I try to buy practical things online, and end up spending a small fortune on pointless stuff like below.

But hey, at least these things make being a grown up a little more fun 🙂
