Festival Inspo

Leave a comment

After a weekend of enduring my friends snapchats, facebooks posts and instagram pics from one of my fave music festivals (Splendour in the Grass!) I’ve managed to find the perfect cure for my jealousy at being absent. Buy a ticket to a music festival over here in Canada!! So in less than two weeks I’ll be setting up my tent for three sun filled, sweaty, sparkly days of fun. In preparation for this I scoured […]

Another wanky post about self-discovery because I’m 21 and trying to figure out my life. Today I answered three simple questions, honestly and without hesitation, in the hope of discovering something new about myself and my goals. I found it a pretty useful, revealing exercise. Let me know if it works for you! So what did I ask? And what did I discover? I’m at my happiest and most inspired when I’m… in nature writing […]

What Ruby Wore 002

People often say that birthday don’t change you . You’re still the same person that you  were yesterday right. Well this year I’ve decided to prove them wrong. Like Jess mentioned in her previous post it is super easy to fall into slumps. You get comfortable and lazy, well I have anyway. So it’s time to kick it to the curb. And if that means writing motivational quotes on my forehead so be it. One […]

Maintaining Creative Practice

I want to learn to create again, just for the sake of creating. When I was younger I would write story after story, my head always full of ideas that needed to be expressed on paper. I would draw too, despite my mediocrity as an artist, doodling away on any surface available- school books, scrap paper, magazines, even the occasional desk. In high school I turned to photography, carrying my beloved Canon DSLR everywhere, documenting […]

Another outfit post on a day too sunny to stay indoors. I spent the morning sipping chai at The Merri Table, a cafe based in my favourite Brunswick destination, CERES environmental park- if you’re ever in the area check it out. There are chooks, veggies, a market full of fresh produce, plus lots of school uniform clad kids running around , learning about sustainability. Now I’m sitting on the balcony, getting organised for university and listening […]

HEY GIRL, IT’S YOU’RE 21st BIRTHDAY! Just a quick shout out to the other side of the globe, where Ruby is hopefully sunning by the lake, a birthday drink in hand. Hope you have a glorious day and that you party as the Whistler locals do (do they party harddddd!) Above are some of the more attractive pictures from our 9 years of friendship (say what!!) Lots of love!!! Jess xx

Camping Adventure

Leave a comment

As most of you would know Canada is full of some of the most amazing scenery, so recently we decided to take full advantage of it by heading out on a camping trip. We picked one of our favorite local spots, Hippie Lake. Its miles down a dirt road so you feel in the middle of no where which in my opinion is the best way to feel when you’re camping. We pitched our tents […]

How to: Feel Healthy When Your Feeling Like Shit

I am finally starting to feel well again after nearly a week of being extra careful to take care of myself. In the last couple of months I’ve fallen out of my healthy-ish daily routine, trading early morning yoga for some extra cuddling time and my home-cooked meals for dinner, drinks, and late nights of live music. This lifestyle, while rewarding on a social level, has wreaked havoc on my body, with my trifling yet persistent cold […]

My health is finally starting to look up after nearly a week of bed rest, refreshing nature walks, and ridiculous amounts of vegetable soup. Thank goodness for this return to wellness- life is about to get very busy, I can’t afford to be rundown. Just two more weeks of work work work, then I’m off to Cairns for some much needed vitamin D, before returning home to start university. I’m going to be studying archaeology […]
