August marks my ninth month living in Darwin. This sounds like a long time to have been living here, but honestly it has just flown by. There was a short period of exploring when I first moved here, but uni and work quickly took over and I settled into my regular routine and the regular… Continue reading My Darwin Bucket List!
I don't really like the idea of doing something for somebody. Don't get me wrong, I love giving people presents or helping them with their uni assignments or paying for their coffee. What I don't like is changing things about myself and my life just to please or satisfy someone else. Or maybe I just… Continue reading Moving For My Partner
1. Favorite candle scent? I am usually a huge fan of floral scents, but in the past few months I have really been craving woody, spiced candles. As you would probably expect for a winter tag! 2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate? Coffee. Always coffee. 3. What’s the best fall memory you have?… Continue reading Sweater Weather Tag
I love plants so much. They are my favourite thing to go shopping for, and the first thing I like to buy when I'm feeling down. At the moment my house is full of plants.

I'm trying really hard to love the location that my partner and I are currently posted at. Or at least to like it.

I just wanted to write this quick post today to share with you my news - I have quit my book club. Actually, I have quit both of them.

Pro: the ocean is everywhere Before I lived in Darwin, I loved the ocean. Even though I didn't live near it, I loved the idea of the ocean. Now no matter what direction I drive in I will hit the ocean within minutes, and it is always so beautiful. Con: at night during the wet… Continue reading An Honest Review of Living in Darwin
I've been really sick this past week, a combined effect of changing meds, catching a cold, and it being that time of the month. Because of this I've spent a lot of time at home, doing a whole lot of nothing, and feeling pretty sorry for myself. As a result of this, I spent more… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!
An open letter to the guy who touched me without my permission at a festival on Saturday: I was just sitting down on the grass, drinking my bottle of water, when you called out to me. I turned around and you were calling me over, telling me to come sit with you. You were wearing… Continue reading You Are Not Entitled To My Body
