Our family is just the right mix of chaos & love (most of the time anyways). . And I think our photographer perfectly captured the balance. . 📷: @leahhopephotography 👏🏼
I’ve been wanting to revive my blog to write more about what I’m sharing on Instagram, so I started with a post finally telling the story of purple hair!!! 🦄 It’s been no easy feat managing a damaged mane for two years but in the last few months vegan products have changed it all! Link in my bio, to read my advice about bleaching Asian hair plus my recommendations for ditching the chemicals and switching to a cruelty-free hair routine. 🐇💯 (Photo from months ago, to show the true @overtonecolor in bright sunlight.) #purplehairdontcare #purpleaesthetic #momentsofmine #flashesofdelight #acolorstory #ihavethisthingwithcolor #createcultivate #peoplescreatives #theeverygirl #crueltyfreebeauty #veganbeauty #littlestoriesofmylife #seekthesimplicity

This little guy turns *5* in just a few short weeks 😮! With Thanksgiving around the corner, George is definitely one of the things I’m most thankful for. He’s showed us the true definition of family and has brought us all closer together. ❤️ Love this kid to pieces!

Ashton came home with a certificate today for "excellent work focusing and staying on task". This might seem like a bit of a *meh* thing to get a certificate for, but for kids like Ashton, kids who have ADHD or other similar conditions, this is a MASSIVE effort. We were SO proud of him. There's an argument which, perhaps validly, states that "kids get certificates too easily these days" or that "mediocrity is being rewarded so kids aren't learning what it's like to fail" or "awards are being handed out just for showing up". And yes, sometimes this might be the case. But more often than not, I believe it's just that we now have a better understanding that every child has a different point of achievement. What's easy for some is incredibly hard for others - and HELL YES this effort to get to that point should be celebrated! The thing is, rewarding their efforts for what other kids "can just do" doesn't mean they aren't learning what it's like to fail. Trust me - they know. They get told every single day. Not always blatantly or outright, but subtley. "Hurry up, why are you always so slow" - fail. "You should be finished be now" - fail. "You'd get it if you just tried harder" - fail. "So-and-so always mucks around" - fail. I'm not saying that parents or teachers or even other kids who say these things are awful people - I've said them myself on many an occasion. But when we stop and think about how much impact those words can have... Man. I would struggle if that was said to me every day. So yes, we need to celebrate their achievements, big and "small". We need to let them know we're in their corner, that we're proud of them, that we recognise their efforts. It's our job to build them up, as much as we possibly can ❤️

Spend your money on knowledge instead of things - it will last much longer than that pair of shoes or piece of home decoration! In October I subscribed for a beginners course in astronomy. Yesterday I had the 3rd class out of 5 and it is so much fun! Check my stories to learn a bit as well. What would you like to learn next?

A girl is always exciting about dressing up, wearing accessories to look good. And I am no different. 😅

Ummm... how is Thanksgiving this week?! Wasn’t it just spring a few days ago? 😭

Just a few of my favourite things✨ . . . #nestdesignstudioCHURCH #ottomanstyle #coffeetabledecor #eclectichome
Some thoughts and things I've learned this past week👇 You can't do all the things, no one can. Been feeling so much guilt. Guilt about wanting to bond with this tiny human and not wanting my two year old to feel neglected❤ It's harder the second time around but it's also easier in some ways👍 A good nights sleep does SO MUCH for your sanity🤪 and self care is so important!! Take that bath, sit down with your favorite drink, go for that walk and do the things that fill you up☕📖 I put so much pressure on myself with zeb to bounce back and appear like I had it altogether which caused such unnecessary anxiety. Trying to go easy on myself and let the little things go🙌 Motherhood is messy, especially postpartum recovery and any pressure I feel is put on by myself and no one else. It's okay to be a hot mess for a while...or just a mess in some cases 😅😜 Some moments will be absolutely overwhelming and some moments will be pure bliss and that's okay too💫 These might seem like obvious things but with a million things going on in my brain and processing the dynamics of adding a new family member, I need these reminders daily right now. And being open and honest is the healthiest thing for everyone. You are not alone and with each new season and the challenges it they bring, there is always joy to be found❤❤ . . . . . . . . . . . . . #motherhoodthroughinstagram #postpartum #postpartumjourney #motherhood #pursuepretty #thehappynow #thisdarlinglife #isntthatdarling #sharemysquare #documentlife #vsco #vscocam #vscovisuals #makemoments #livethelittlethings #creativityfound #theartofslowliving #seekthesimplicity #mytinymoments #choosejoy #flashesofdelight #goodvibes #photooftheday #liveauthentic #enjoythelittlethings
I’d say one of the best coffee in town. Would love to go back when I’m in #Manila again.

After that hail we had last night and the dreary, soggy and cold start this morning I feel the need to see something pretty to remind me that we are indeed still in springtime😅I’m crossing my fingers that summer will still come in a couple of weeks 🤞😝🌸💖#springtime #blossoms #iheartpink #mypastelcharm #soft_tones #minimal_perfection #instaworld_love #allwhatsbeautiful #myeverydaymagic #seekthesimplicity #bokehlove #nzphotographer #nataliacampbellphotography #nothingisordinary #pocket_pretty #inspiremyinstagram #simplicityinstilllife #simpleandstill #alliseeispretty #myquietbeauty #mypastelcharm #pocket_flowers #inspiredbypetals #underthefloralspell #pocket_flowers #bokeh_bliss #alliseeispretty
“It took no time at all before I was lost in the capture, that exhilaration you get when you are photographing simple beauties in gorgeous light. I focused on the input, the inspiration, the creation, and forgot all about the output, the post, the grid.”⠀ ⠀ Instagram burnout is a real thing.

So much to be grateful for. I saw a homeless guy's sign at Powell Station that read 'you woke up today'. I often have to pinch myself that I am living a healthy life that's good for me and that I enjoy. Not only that, but I have someone to share it with that just happens to be the best person on the whole of the Earth. Just sayin'. Isn't it great and I mean GREAT when you find that person?

New article up on the website. Hospitality design and why it matters. Link in bio Think for a moment, what is your favourite restaurant, café or bar? Most of the time we’ll think of a venue that gives us a foodgasm. But, with the rise of insta-worthy architectural attractions, it’s clear hospitality design is becoming critical. Your customers expect to be inspired by your venue. If they don’t, they’ll more often than not find a venue that will offer both. . . . #onexoneinteriors #onexoneproject #devilsinthedetails #interiordesigner #interiorarchitect #lifeofadesigner #foodgasm #interiordesign #orangensw #regionalnsw #centralwestnsw #creativesoul #seekinspirecreate #inspiremyinstagram #seekthesimplicity #thehappynow #thelifestylecollective #beautifulmoments #hospitalitydesign #interiorarchitecture #interiordetails #architecturaldesign #cellardoor #orangecitylife #designbuild #contemporarydesign #hospitalitylife #instainteriors #instaarchitecture
This post almost didn’t happen. If we were having tea right now, I’d tell you that I’m very grateful for my health. Every time I walk though the sliding doors of the hospital to deal with a menagerie of human miseries that take the form of different illnesses, my spirit wilts a little. The amount of suffering concentrated in one place can be a little much to bear. I’m in no mental state to comment further on this as I just had a long day at work. Maybe we can talk more about this at a different time when I can express myself more coherently? If we were having tea right now, I’d tell you for as long as I could remember, autumn has always been my favorite season. The cool air that is slightly accented with a sense of dignified loneliness both soothes and inspires me. To me, the glory of autumn is reflected in its golden richness that does not emanate the naivety of spring, the arrogance of summer, or the deteriorating spirit of winter; but of the calm wisdom and mature awareness of the dichotomy of life -- the possibilities and limitations, the push and pull, the give and take of living in this multidimensional and multifarious world... . If we were having tea right now, I’d ask you about your day and hope that it was better than mine.

"Hello darkness, my old friend I've come to talk with you again Because a vision softly creeping Left its seeds while I was sleeping And the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains Within the sound of silence..." - the magnificent Paul Simon - Autumnal afternoon by the fire. We are all set at the new place and suddenly I feel sadness and fatigue flaring up. Change. A much desired yet feared experience. Nevertheless, here I sit in the middle of the marshlands, absent minded going through some crocheting and trying not to kill the beauty of this moment by yet another abundance of thoughts. Life as it is part ... well, I've lost count of my existential ponderings long ago. Which I take is a good thing. Maybe, just maybe, I might start to live more from the heart and less from the mind. Almost fourteen years of academic existentialism and I seem to have been staring into the abyss more than anything else. Ah change, you and I haven't told our story just yet. Sending love x
I love you so much. What would our day look like without you? I can’t even imagine. But, in the back of my head, I NEED to imagine it. I have to remember you aren’t mine. Foster care is so....unnatural. There isn’t another word that could describe it better. Love her like she is yours (because that’s what she deserves) and also, be ready to let her go when it’s time. That’s just not natural. But, that’s what I’ll do. I’ll do it because you need me to. I love you. I love you so much.
Be the way that you want to be  Not the way that others have chose,  Be what you want if you so desire  If that! is what is in your soul,  Bring forth a wish or make a dream  And never be stopped by, "No". Laugh if you feel like laughing  Even though the world might frown,  Laugh from your soul, even if there's woe  But laugh, because it is your sound. #whenindoubt #lifeisbeautiful #happy #happinessisachoice #beyourownsunshine #grind #bloggerlife #seekthesimplicity #livethelittlethings #lifestyleblogger #motivation #entrepreneurinspiration #entrepreneur #entrepreneurgoals #entrepreneurspirit   #entrepreneurism #lifegoals #beyourownboss  #teacuptuesday #rawandtoastedbyjasmin

Proportion play on this easy Monday 🌾 If you don’t go the floral route this year on your holiday table, try oversized vessels for an equally striking gesture #SpurOfTheMoment #SpurLineHoliday #StyleMeSpurLine
Lots of weddings lately! (I miss painting like this). This is the busiest season for all your wedding vendor/photographer friends... send lots of love, grace, kind gestures. Can’t wait to get back into painting in the stoood again. — “Leaves the 99” 36x60. Mixed media on canvas. This guy is a honker (+ he’s avail).
Today I attended a 1:1 workshop with @splendor_of_eden ✨ Brie has always been someone whose work I have greatly admired and been inspired by since starting @local.blooms. I am so grateful I was able to learn from her and create along side of her today in her dreamy home with these gorgeous flowers! Her amazing advice and wisdom is still being absorbed and I think it will greatly help my growing business. Thank you Brie for the amazing experience!
