Hello June! – 10 Things You Should Do This Month



Dear World

Is it really already June? Oh, how time flies! I cannot believe it.

I totally believe in making new months resolutions. Why? Because we can always aspire to be better. So, here is a list of things you should do this month (I’m doing them too!)

1. Make Chalkboard Paint.

I saw this project a couple of weeks ago on A Beautiful Mess and have been itching to do it ever since.

2. Look for motivation everywhere

The internet is crawling with quotes turned into cute pictures. Ok, some of them are insanely cheesy but I think some of them are quite inspirational. So, I want to start collecting these quotes and hang them up in my room so they can ‘inspire’ me, so to speak.

3. Document everything

A moment is gone in a blink, no matter how beautiful it is – beauty doesn’t slow down time. And then in a couple of days it’s forgotten, wiped from your mind, as if it was never there. A camera, a diary or even a blog documents these moments so they become memories and can capture a truly happy day.

4. Make Cake Pops

Ahh, cake pops (crumbled cake mixed with frosting, dipped in candy and then covered in yet more candy), the new baking trend. A marginally disgusting idea when you think about it, but really quite cute and probably rather pleasant to eat.

5. Buy a pair of funky tights or leggings.

Oh my goodness, the number or cute tights/leggings on the market is AMAZING *cue hyperventilating fit* !!! Now before I start sounding more bimbo and annoying lets just take a deep breath and take in this information.


Ahhh, so funky tights are kind of an obsession of mine, I don’t actually own a pair (shock horror!) but I desperately want to. Below is a collection of my utter favourites.

6. Make a new banner/logo for this blog

Inspired by the banner of A Beautiful Mess, I have decided I really need a new banner. I’m tossing up between a geometric pattern or a polka dot pattern. Thoughts?

7. Have a movie night (complete with caramel popcorn and hot chocolate)

Here in Australia, it’s winter. Therefore, a time to cosy up, knit, make thick blankets and drink amounts of hot chocolate that aren’t accepted by society. WRONG. Australian winter is kinda cold but not cold enough to heat up the open fire and do the classic winter things – this is something I find highly frustrating. A movie night however is nice because it’s cosy and captures the essence of winter! (sorry leaning into cooking show mode there!)

8. Find a new blog to read

I read a lot of very popular blogs…Gala Darling, A Beautiful Mess, Oh Hello Friend etc. But I don’t read any underdog blogs without many people reading them. So, what I’m really saying is, come forward with your blogs – I’d love to have a look!

9.  Plant a tree

Well, or a little garden, or herb patch. Bring out your green thumb and plant. Because planting is fun and, as people say so very often – it’s good to do your own bit for the world

10. Smile

If you frown on a bad day it’s only going to make your day worse. Smiling is a cure for sadness and it shows you’re a happy person – so we should all do it so much more often! Cheesy but true.

Have a nice day,



Inspiration – Jars

Dear World,

Vintage-style jars seem to be a massive trend at the moment, don’t you agree? I utterly love them! They have an old-style, homey edge that I think gives out an amazing warmth. I love it when people drink out of them (especially  with red candy stripe straws), however I like it best when people decorate them and put tea lights in or put flowers in them. They are such an amazing addition to a table!

My favourite jars on the internet

1. Reusable name glasses with chalk board paint from A Beautiful Mess

2. Drinking jars from What Katie Ate

3. Photo jars from A Beautiful Mess

4. Yearbook votive from A Beautiful Mess

Will post some of my personal jar projects too.

Lots of love,
