major minor latest collection

Im excited to share the latest collection of bed linen from Major Minor ( my most favourite yet )  maybe because I styled and photographed the collection ( yes very exciting)

Im loving their most recent colour palette, inkstripe, ash, olive and slate are my stand out favorites – so timeless and classic and all the shades I love on my own bed!

The collection was shot exclusively at River Hawk Ranch a truly inspirational location belonging to good friends Kim and Stephen, just outside of Byron Bay.

small changes

lets get woke!

Small change can actually make big change

Im starting to think no one really cares…

We all should care! and try to be better humans for the planet

Heres a few ways I’m trying to make a difference…

no plastic takeaway containers

compostable dog (poo) bags from compost-a-pak

no need to put your rubbish in plastic bags put it straight into the bin

keeping reusable bags in the car for the supermarket

buying fresh produce not in plastic

plastic container free shampoo bars from lush

avoiding the take away coffee cups – either sit down, use a travel cup or have coffee at home – try Sipp Instant

part time vegan eating way less red meats and dairy ( I have replaced cows milk with coconut milk) I’m not sure how this will play out maybe eventually full-time… try Herbidoor or Brown Paper eats for vegan/vegetarian meals

solar powered (my home/studio is thanks top an awesome land lord)

no palm oils check the labels

reducing waste

buying less – having less stuff

recycling

reusing

reducing

walking (helps having g a cute dog) and riding my bike more

my next project my own vegetable garden – excited to begin growing my own vegetables and herbs and maybe some fruit

no plastic bags – duh! not even those stupid durable (reusable) ones replacing simple use plastic bags

no plastic straws – a smoothie, juice or cocktail just doesn’t need one and  if you really do need one use a metal or glass one

no cling wrap ( I reuse jars instead)

I would love to hear more ways you carte making a change! tag me on Instagram

 

 

 

 

posie x pampa candle collaboration

Im loving the candle created by Posie and Pampa both based in Byron bay

The candle called PAZ meaning ‘Peace’ in Spanish blends cleansing Eucalyptus and earthy Palo Santo, a link between the native elements of Australia and Argentina to reflect the origins of Victoria and Carl the founders of Pampa

Photos Thanks to Pampa

diy blinds

I love a project and the long weekend was the perfect opportunity for a little DIY

The problem was 3 ugly windows, and because I focus on solutions not problems the solution was easy white shutters

I love the look of these classic white shutters and how they have transformed my windows, best of all it was all super easy, I measured and installed them myself all thanks to DIY Blinds

With an easy online service and excellent customer support I did this all by myself (well with the help of a couple of their how to videos)

One down two to go!

must love plants

Im not sure why its so but plants just make an interior come to life, maybe by adding some life this creates a feel good vibe, who knows but my indoor plant collection is growing (again) which ever way you look at it you must love plants!

 

boy smells

Its no secret I LOVE a good candle, my latest discovery Boy Smells all the way from LA available from Nikau Store via the Candle Library

I love there signature pink boxes and unique scent combinations, my favourite so far Prunus (oakmoss, fig, plum, vanilla and yuzu) is delicious!
