my sister has an amazing collection of children's books.
including a gem from what has to be about the 50's with these gorgeous and [these days] politically incorrect illustrations.
i love it!

2. skydive (eeeeeeekk!) [doing]
a birthday gift from some of my darling friends in perth.
when i got the card from charlene, i didn't know whether to laugh or cry!
I'm quite excited either way.
so stay posted for this one...
5. run 10km [done]
somehow this was preferable to completing than say making pizza dough (no. 14).
we had a public holiday the other week and I just got up after dinner and decided to do it.
it's not easy.
i'm talking running 10km.
no walking, no breaks, no leisurely jog.
i did it in 62 minutes.
and not going to lie, i'm pretty proud of myself!
12. have a whole month of no shopping [done]
quite easily done when you're not earning money for a while.
so i made it more like 12 weeks without buying any shoes, clothes, etc.
a good lesson in deciding what you want as opposed to need in life.
16. spend a whole weekend at home [done]
some people might think this is strange, but in a life where you're so busy with work and social activities, it's great to have a real break from everything – including "fun".
another one i'd seriously recommend trying.
17. knit a scarf [so, so close to being finished]
and because of this i'm going to slightly cheat and say done.
i only have to cast-off and that requires some concentration and possibly a youtube video to learn.
18. go to body balance, yoga or pilates consistently [done]
and it's amazing what it does for your peace of mind, posture and strength.
my favourite is yoga i think.
the class i do at my gym is pretty intense.
i am more sore the next day after a yoga class than a 10km run…
i'll indulge you all (or myself) in a proper round up soon.
i have had some amazing feedback about this list and want to share my thoughts behind it all.

here is a little snapshot of my amazing 30th birthday party.
just how my iphone captured it.
i'll share some more pics soon.
i had the most fantastic birthday weekend with my family and friends in tasmania.
my musketeers and family threw me the most amazing celebration!
totally like my dream ultimate party.
i am truly blessed to have such amazing people in my life.
and that cheese cake, oh that cheese cake... it was INCREDIBLE!
a real masterpiece girls.
i'll also share the final round up of my 30 before 30 soon.

a little over a year ago, two of my gorgeous friends got married.
the smilebooth at their reception has produced some serious, fall-of-you-chair-laughing moments.
i found these images while cleaning up my computer.
HAD to share.
new favourite: frozen banana + mixed berries + oats + oat milk + chia seeds + honey + frozen spinach.
can't even taste it and get some bonus greens in your morning.
another new discovery is oat milk.
it's creamy and kind of nutty.
i wouldn't go drinking it by itself, but it's perfect in this drink.
this little concoction of mine is so delicious + super healthy!

...and here is a little more pattern loving.
i created this one myself.
if you think it's slightly reminiscent of a man's handkerchief, you would be right.
a design job i did a little while ago for my friend to give to her husband as a gift.
