OK so I’m starting off small in my Etsy shop! I think that’s the best way to do things.
I’ve put up four very cute notepaper sets that will make you want to write letters super badly.
Sometimes life kicks you square in the stomach. Yeah, it hurts. It hurts a lot. You have to suck it up and move on. This post is about motivation inspiration. Do that thing you always wanted to do. Be the person you always wanted to be. You don’t get second chances in life. You are lucky to be given this one so Do.It.Now.

These beautiful vintage maritime art prints are so incredible. The details are amazing. I’m pretty gobsmacked by how awesome they are really.
What do you think?
It will come as no surprise that I’m a magazine addict. The more obscure the magazine the more I want it.
I tend to gravitate between fashion, literary and home mags. I find that glossies help me to come up with ideas when I’m writing ad copy because the ads in these magazines use few words. Fewer words means every single one is included for a reason. It’s cool to dissect the ads to see how they are crafted (perhaps that’s just a writer thing?).
Over the last few weeks I have been cataloguing my magazine collection into Evernote. I am in love with Evernote. If I have an idea for an article I can just search through my collection to see if anyone has written about it before. Genius stuff that will save me so much time!
I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite magazine covers from my current catalogue. Do you have a favourite magazine? Perhaps we can do a swap!

Are you feeling inspired? After kicking this brutal chest yuckiness and mourning the loss of my Nanna I’m finally feeling a little happier (what a month!).

What’s up paper nerds? January is over and done – how crazy is that. 2014 certainly got off to a feverish start (I threw in the feverish part because I’ve had a fever/chest infection for the last bajillion weeks – my pathetic attempt at witty humour).
Today I am so stoked to be sharing a book review written by resident reviewer Bec. You’ll be seeing a lot more book and magazine reviews from now on so yay!
The Forever of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorenson continues the impassioned modern day romance of Ella and Micha originally set out in The Secret of Ella and Micha. While reading the first book in a series is always recommended, Forever is able to stand well enough on its own, as it delves into the difficulties of maintaining a long distance relationship, with Ella pursuing education and Micha touring the country with his band.
Both Ella and Micha are real people – the people you see in a café, at school or on the bus. They are characters with their own sets of very real problems that they need to handle and accept.
Sorenson has dealt with some deep issues is this book, and as such I would recommend it for readers aged 18+.
It is a story that is desperate and hopeful; somber and sexy; heartbreaking and beautiful.

Bec is a full-time worker, a part-time student, a when-the-occasion-calls-for-it drama queen and a forever-and-always booklover. Her love affair with books began when she was 3, and she hasn’t been without a book in her hand since. She is also a self confessed nerd and she embraces that title with open arms. She is very excited to share her thoughts with you and hopes you enjoy!

I have been toying with the idea of getting a tattoo but I am worried that I might get buyers remorse. That tends to happen with me. The minute I get inked will be the minute I am over the allure of the old skull/anchor/heart/ampersand combo chest piece that looked so awesome on Pinterest.
So, I’ve turned my attention to temporary tattoos. Have you noticed how awesome they are getting?
These ones are from Brisbane-based Pepper Ink and I love them all.
