So, I decided to make some geometric artwork to add to my office using glitter cardstock. Here's how you can make one too. What you'll … [Read more...]

What Setbacks Can Teach Us About What’s Important

What Setbacks Can Teach Us About What's Important on Style for a Happy Home // Click for more

Setbacks are a pain. They are rarely things that you want to happen, but they can turn out to be quite helpful. My injury recovery has had quite a few setbacks lately.

I Was Told There'd Be Cake: A Book Review on Style for a Happy Home // Click for more

Back when I worked in the corporate world, I spent a lot of my lunch times hiding in a bookshop. I didn't love my job, but because it was my first real inner city - grown up - job I thought it was just how things were meant to be.

I love when my home feels organised, but it can feel like it's so much of a BIG job to really make the changes that I often put some of the more high use areas (that really need organisation the most) on the back burner. Organising my laundry about 6 months ago really opened my eyes to how things can stay neat if I just give everything a proper place to go back to. So a few … [Read more...]

There are so many websites that bring beautiful images of homes and have ideas on what makes a life "perfect" that we can easily get caught up in thinking that we'll never be good enough. That we'll never look like them or have as many pretty things or even stay as blissfully calm as they seem to. But here's the reality: A photo is just a moment in time.
