Beautiful Beach Visit

IMG_6724

Ray, Benji and I went to Tallebudgera Creek today. It is so beautiful and relaxing watching the calm, crystal blue water gently lap onto the white sand. The creek is shadowed by a hill, where you can walk along the track underneath a canopy of trees. This is the second time we have taken our kitten to the beach- the first time he was very scared, but today he was surprisingly calm! As we live in an apartment, he doesn’t spend much time outside so I love taking him to the beach where he can inhale fresh salty air, see so many different things, and get some sun. Here are some photos taken by Ray (see his blog here). Hope you enjoy!

Anything is Possible

nirrimi

So today, a friend mentioned a girl whose blog she is following. Her name is Nirrimi Joy Firebrace, she is 21, and she has taken some of the most amazing photographs that I have ever seen. The photographs that she posts on her blog are accompanied by long passages of text, describing her life- she had a child at a young age, traveled the world as a photographer, and has experienced some amazing things. Her outlook on life reminded me that really anything is possible, as long as you believe you can do it. You don’t have to follow society’s norms, you can go against the grain- making you stick out a little- but ultimately be happier. I think it is better to focus on what your passion is- whatever it may be- than just try to fit in. After all, whose life are you living? See Nirrimi’s blog here! 

DIY Beautiful Outdoor Birthday Get-together!

Here are some pictures of a really great birthday gathering I went to today. It was such a lovely set-up! I hope you get some inspiration to create a breath-taking setting for an event, or just to relax in!

To create this look, you need: a gazebo, outdoor fairy lights (warm white), white net (the ones we used are actually mosquito nets), chandelier (optional), a rug, cushions, a small low table, basic decorations (i.e.vase of flowers, candles). Music also helps to set the mood!

We were surrounded by flickering candle light and the glittering reflections from the crystal chandelier as we came together for a night of good company, good food, and good conversation.

The soothing, ethereal music from a Celtic harp dramatically added to the mystical, surreal vibe of the setting.

While I took a few of these photos, most of them were taken by Ray. Check out his other photos and photography tips on his blog!

Hand-drawn Dream catcher

I thought I would share with you guys one of my most recent drawings. I love how the dream catcher is so simple, yet so detailed. Having pictures like this in your living space really contributes to a clean, calm atmosphere.

Having the dark pencil drawing- with just a touch of colour from the beads- on a plain white back drop really makes the image pop. I think the addition of a white wooden frame really puts the icing on the cake as well. Hand-drawn Dream catcher
