What’s going on Melbourne? You look like autumn but you feel like summer? Just as long as winter’s not involved, I’m happy 😉 #melbourne #fourseasonsinoneday #crazycity #weather #autumn #fall #summer #leaves #prettyfootpath
This week’s mood board comes from Polka Dot Bride, and is built around this weeks theme; green. I love how this board is so casual and even includes a Christmas tree!
Wow. Thank you for sharing @vmacandcheese by @dailyletterings. What a way to start the week after a long weekend! Speechless. #inspiration #betheinspiration #typography #graphicdesign #lettering #blackandwhite #perfection #speechless #wow
My Weekly Muse - Green
Why hello there! So lovely to be back blogging and designing and ticking things off my lists again! I cannot tell you how frustrating it was not being able to just get on with it these past few weeks! If they say bad things happen in three’s, then I have had my three *touch wood*. After coming down with a bout of migraines, my computer/technology packing in, then my poor little pup Harry - a miniature schnauzer, you may have seen him on my Instagram from time to time - had to have emergency surgery last Tuesday. Phew! But, I’m back =) And this week my weekly muse is green.
I have chosen this muse for two reason - the first being St Patrick’s Day is next Monday, and also, universally the colour green represents growth and renewal. Green is the colour of balance and harmony, it renews and restores depleted energy and it is a natural peacemaker. Therefore I thought it was quite fitting to have green as my muse after the past few week’s I have had; having been forced to renew my energy and rethink my balancing of work/rest/play, etc.
So thank you very much for putting up with all the randomness that has consumed the blog these past few week’s - and welcome to Crave by Lust Creative 2014 - Take Two!
Quick break from working and came across these adorable munchkins over on @greenweddingshoes. If you’re looking for some wedding inspiration over the long weekend, this backyard wedding is so lovely. #wedding #weddings #backyardwedding #flowergirls #girls #cute #casual #family #love

Lemon prep for the week. Getting strict with my health again to keep those nasty migraines and stress levels at bay. Does anyone have any tips? I already take magnesium and avoid sugar as much as I can. And haven’t drunk coffee for about five years. #health #healthy #healthkick #migraines #migrainemanagement #stress #stressless #lemons #lemonwater #yellow #fruit #citrus #pretty
Painting while my computer is MIA. Forgot how much I enjoyed mixing colors rather than clicking them with a mouse! #paint #painting #art #artwork #therapy #therapeutic #arttherapy #pink #abstract #backtobasics
My favourite words
I must begin today’s post by apologising for my missing Thursday Thoughts yesterday, I am having a lot of computer/technology trouble at the moment and was not able to finish my Thoughts post. Further to that, after being so patient with me while I personally took a break last week, I am so sorry to say that I won’t be posting next week while my computer takes a break…! Which is also why today’s post is purely text based - it just cannot handle anything ‘complex’ (aka pretty) right now.
Thank you so much for your understanding, I (and my computer) will be back on Monday 10th March. xxoo
This week’s muse was a word; aesthetic. It is one of my all time favourite words. I love the way it sounds, the way it looks on the page, and to me, it embodies what it describes. This got me thinking about my other favourite words that also have these properties, and I have compiled a little list for you below. Feel free to share your favourite words in the comments - I have a bit of a thing for linguistics! And if you do too, you may want to visit this page.
1. concerned with beauty or the appreciation of beauty.
1. recover from illness or exertion.
1. characterized by or causing cohesion.
1. characterized by pretentious or showy display; designed to impress.
1. representing the most perfect or typical example of a quality or class.
1. causing difficulty; hard to do or deal with.
— I am always amused by how awkward the word ‘awkward’ is! —
1. the practice of spying or of using spies, typically by governments to obtain political and military information.
1. a meeting at an agreed time and place.
Today on the blog, Crave by Lust Creative, I shared a visually stunning restaurant (with an unexpected cuisine) as well as my thoughts on eating out. Image via Heirloom
This is how I’m feeling right now. Turns out my computer had to be wiped…. and now I can’t access my backup (and this dufuss only did one extra back up…! 😡😰😫) SO….. Does anyone know how to retrieve Time Capsule passwords (or override them) without doing a reset? The rest thing didn’t work, and I’ve tried every possible combination of every possible password. I’m in an almighty BIG pickle. #help #computertrouble #whydontthingsjustwork #timecapsule #passwords #lost #hopeless
This week’s mood board comes from Vasare Nar, and embodies this weeks theme; aesthetic. I wanted a simple board this week, but one that featured typography. And when I came across this one that included shape, colour, tone, texture, and pattern, I thought it was perfect.
My Weekly Muse - Aesthetic
Hello lovlies! Thank you for being so patient and understanding while I took a week to rest and recuperate.
This week’s muse is a word; aesthetic. I love it’s meaning, the way it sounds, the way it looks on the page. To me, it embodies what it describes.
Thank you to everyone for your patience and kind words while I took some much needed time to rest last week. A fresh week ahead and I cannot wait to get back into it 🙏 #thankyou #grateful #patience #rest #newweek #fresh #add #subtract #letsdothis
