Slightly Bookish

One of the major perks (besides free accommodation in beautiful locations up and down this fine land!) of housesitting is the abundance of personal libraries I get to swoon over.

Transformation Tuesday: On A Friday

Ok, so I’m either a little late or a little early with this, but who cares! All you guys really want to see are the results right?

Fortitude Valley Forever

Fortitude Valley, described by Visit Brisbane as “a contradiction in itself – raw, yet sophisticated. It is where elegance and style meet grungy and offbeat” It’s a fantastic, kinda grubby, little gem about a mile outside of the Brissy CBD and I absolutely adore it! When I first arrived in Australia back in August 2014,… Continue reading Fortitude Valley Forever
