Spring in Sydney

Spring is my favourite time of the year in Sydney. The days get longer, the air turns warmer and everyone starts to get that holiday vibe...

Spring has finally arrived in Sydney and oh boy it is so lovely! You can honestly feel the difference straight away. The air is slightly warmer, the sun lingers for longer and there are more people showing their faces to the sun.

Spring is my favourite time of the year – how can it not be, it’s when we got married. It also means we are getting closer to the end of the year. This means summer in Australia! There’s nothing like it. The beaches here are just divine when the warm weather kicks in.

We’ll be heading off again soon for another travel adventure to celebrate our two year wedding anniversary! How time passes.

Here are some snaps from some precious time I have been spending at home (also got to celebrate my birthday – hooray for cake!). For me home is Manly in Sydney. It’s my dream home – right by the sea surrounded by nature.

Enjoy xx

What’s your favourite season?

Give Yourself A Reality Check This Christmas

Why do we stress so much? Why do we let ourselves worry so much about the little things? This year has made me realize how fragile life is- I’ve heard of many deaths and illnesses and I’m still so young. It makes you realize how silly it is to petty over all the things we do.

This festive season don’t let stress or work take over your life. Take a break and relax and give attention to the people in your world. As the quote says “No one looked back on their life wishing they spent more time at work.”

For me Christmas is a time to celebrate the year- look back and pick up on all the little things that made you happy. It’s a time to celebrate with your loved ones, family and friends, to all be in the same place at the same time and to be able to share stories and laugh and enjoy each others company.

Let’s not get caught up on things that in a bigger perspective don’t even matter. Stress less- about Christmas presents, work, about organising Christmas parties, New Year plans, plans for 2014.. Let’s start the New Year with a brighter perspective, with dreams and ambitions but above all a relaxed and refreshed you. Let life take you on a journey and stop trying to force your way through- if it’s meant to happen it will.
