Things in lockdown that bring me joy

31 August 2021

 As Sydney is still in lockdown I've been finding joy in more things that give me comfort like bible journaling , making heaps of little treats like these pancakes & more houseplant purchasing and watching some good tv shows and heaps of furbabies snuggles 




We just used a pancake batter mix from white wings and some olive oil to cook them in the pan 
we then added lemon juice and some brown sugar on top it was so light and refreshing I added some strawberries on the side as they have been so fresh and delicious lately 
I would be so lost without my babies Eleanor & Violet as they bring so much joy and happiness 
I've been finding that doing things like having a nice homemade breakfast makes being in lockdown easier also i've nearly finished Gilmore girls also I've been purchasing some new decor pieces and re organising my room with some new items from Kmart as well 
I hope you are all safe & well

As Sydney is still in this Lockdown myself & my sister bec made a massive Grace Daily Co order we have been wanting to purchase these gorgeous devotional's from them for ages now we both picked out the same book's they are absolutely gorgeous the paper is like a really good quality magazine and the amount of love that has been put into each book with the artwork and images is so aesthetically pleasing

The Psalms has to be one of my favourite book's in the Bible seeing it displayed like it is in these book's and every gorgeous fine detail to each of the Psalms each page is filled with beautiful touches that add's a stunning creative look into each devotional 

The Lord's Prayer and The walking away from Anxiety are really freeing to read I love jotting down my notes in a different book as i don't want to ruin any of these pages so im going to be studying them through my Journal book for devotionals that im reading 



These are the perfect pick me up gift to treat yourself or for a friend too

Winter Houseplant care | Begonia Calathea & More

24 July 2021

My Houseplant collection has grown more since this new lockdown in Sydney and as im waiting from some new plant babies to arrive i wanted to move some of my older babies and check on them to see how they are coping in the winter. The main thing that they need is heaps of humidity in the winter  using my humidifier's one on the top & bottom tier of my shelf is what i find that keeps them happy and not go into a frenzy during the colder months. 


I also group them together to add more humidity as well once or twice a week I mist them with filtered water depending how dry they get from the dryers being on as these are in our spare room near the laundry 
I also use my we the wild neem oil spray to clean over my leaves and to keep gnats away i only do this once every 2 to 3 weeks I find this gives them a boost of any nutrients they need and this helps if the leaves get dry looking too.

For my Calathea Plants they all live in our bathroom as it has the most humidity in there these are a selected few of the calatheas i've got as there is quite a few in our bathroom now 



With these calatheas the get a moister meter check every 4 days plus they also get a mist too every few days to keep them happy

Autumn Makeup Favourites | Maybelline Elf Cosmetics

22 April 2021

This year we've had heaps of new products arriving in Australia for Autumn so I thought I would talk about some of my new favourites that I've been loving this season from Maybelline NYX & more 

NYX Cosmetics marshmallow primer this has to be one of my new favourite drugstore primers its a soft smooth consistency with a gorgeous marshmallow scent as its made from marshmallow root extract 

The new Maybelline super stay active foundation I will admit this did take me a few times to actually like this foundation you really need to blend this formula out quickly as it dries really fast other than that I love the look of this Foundation on my skin. 

Maybelline Color Strike pens in Chase & Strike these are one of my favourites when i want a something quick on my eyes they blend out like a dream and don't crease the Maybelline sky high mascara this is a really good make my lashes fuller mascara the waterproof one is not good so get the non water proof one 

ELF Cosmetics bite sized shadows in Cream & Sugar and Pumpkin Pie are so cute and the colour selection that each eyeshadow palette has is amazing you can create any kind of look with these palettes 

Flower Beauty Cosmetics seal the deal setting spray i've been trying this one out for a few months now as we have some wedding makeup's coming up soon I really love the formula of this its a lightweight setting spray with a fine mist and no scent which is perfect it also sets my makeup perfectly.

Makeup Revolution " Rachel Lipstick" this is the perfect 90's rose mauve colour the formula is a soft satin cream that isn't drying at all and it keeps my lips hydrated.

Brunch at Cuppa Flower | Sydney Waterloo

16 April 2021


I have been wanting to try this cute little cafe called Cuppa Flower for a little while now i just love the aesthetics at this cafe its filled with so much rustic decor with a modern touch and heaps of gorgeous dried arrangements it has to be one of my favourites for a chilled bite to eat in Sydney 

We got the Ricotta Pancakes which were so light and fluffy the fruit was so fresh and the mix of sweet with the honey comb pieces and maple syrup and creamy with the mascarpone cheese and ricotta was the perfect pancake combination im a massive fan of mascarpone cheese with pancakes as its lighter than cream plus I do love my cheese so its always a plus in my book.
Also the presentation was absolutely beautiful the staff were super helpful as well 





If you ever in Sydney's Waterloo area definitely check this cute little cafe out
