    LA Adventures

    A few weeks ago, hubby and I took a trip to LA to visit family, enjoy thanksgiving and spend a crazy amount of time shopping. I can honestly say we ticked all three boxes very successfully and had an incredible time doing so. Los Angeles is one city that has always been in my top five travel destinations, so I was a little scared I’d come away feeling I’d hyped it up to much – but no, LA delivered on every level and I can not wait to go back! Below are my top five highlights from the trip. If you ever get to go, I highly recommend them all…

    Operation Organise: Clever Kitchen Tips

    Having an organised kitchen is one of my top priorities in the home – without this space being clean, organised and tidy, stepping into the kitchen just isn’t as enjoyable. Now being 90% of the way through our own kitchen renovation, we have had the blessing of being able to sit down and design our kitchen plan around how we want to operate. Today I would have liked LOVED this post to also include our reveal of the new space, but there are still a few final touches to finish before we are at that stage. While we have built much of our kitchen using drawers (the best way to…

    Operation Organise – Wardrobes

    Not all wardrobes are created equal. There are those that come from dreams, like Carrie Bradshaw’s in ‘Sex and the City’ and there are those from my younger days – the not so glamorous garment wrack. In saying that, it doesn’t matter how extravagant or simple your wardrobe is, there are a few tricks that can be utilised by all. But before we get into the business, a little eye candy… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n57AmaAD0Nk Now… back to reality! I don’t think I know of any girl, who would say no to a closet like that, but even Carrie’s walk-in could look pretty nasty if not organised. My points below are for just that –…

    Operation Organise – Bedrooms

    Ok, lets be real – this post could easily be taken over by what is often the focus of bedroom organising – wardrobes, but today I’m not even going to go there. In each and every bedroom, there are a couple of other areas that are also important to keep your sacred space organised and looking sharp. Your bedroom should be a sanctuary. It may only be you (and your other half) that sees it, but it’s the first thing you see each morning and last each night so that makes a pretty important space. It should be a place of rest and relaxation and that means, clean, tidy and peaceful. So what are some ways you can get the…

    Operation Organise – Bathrooms

    Most of us start and end our days in the bathroom getting ready for the day or for bed, so why wouldn’t you want that space to be clean and organised? The sad truth is, bathrooms are often overlooked. I tend to find most people either have a stunning, well organised space boasting loads of storage or a space that is quite uninspiring and leaves us questioning – where to begin? There are so many options for getting your bathroom sorted, whether you already have great cupboard space or not. Have a look at the tips below – there should be something for everyone. I think I’ll be implementing one or two of these…

    Operation Organise – Lounge Rooms

    Spring has officially sprung, and with that comes Spring cleaning and the chance to get your life organised. Being organised is a big thing for me. I can handle a bit of dust here and there, but feel completely frazzled when my surroundings are not organised. So much so, that my mum and sister have always teased me for having everything down to my underwear draw as neat as possible. So with that in mind, I thought I would put together an operation organise series. Over the next few weeks we will be tackling one room at a time, starting with the Lounge and moving through to the Kitchen, Bathroom, Bedroom and Garage. The…

    Inspire me!

    Today I thought I would do something a little different. We all have days when inspiration is lacking and procrastination is in abundance. When those days hit, sometimes all we need is a little pick me up. Motivational posters can seem so cliché, but surrounding yourself and ensuring what goes into your mind is as positive as what you speak out, is so important to success! Proverbs 18:21 – Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits. Here is some of my favourite quotes that I often use to spike up my inspiration and get me moving. Whether is to…
