Growing in to 2016 {One Word} | Life


2015 has been a pretty unbelievable year. I started off the year with the decision to head to Tafe and study photography, in the hopes that it would help me pursue my passion of being a professional photographer. Little did I know when I signed up for that first 9 week course that I would go on to complete my Diploma and learn so much along the way.

{Punky} It's been slowly coming for the last couple of years, but this year Punky is well and truly into the Christmas spirit now. She knows all about it and loves every bit of it. I was in two minds about putting up the big tree this year, but after seeing how much she enjoyed helping decorate Mum's tree the week before, I decided that the risk of Zee destroying it was worth the joy it would bring Punky. It was the right decision.

4 Simple Ways to Improve Your Sleep | Lifestyle

4 Simple Ways to Improve Your Sleep

This post written in collaboration with Sleepy's The Mattress Experts

For many years, especially when I was a teenager, I suffered from insomnia. I've always been a night owl, but these periods of insomnia are something else. I could lie in bed for hours, trying every kind of relaxation technique to try and get my body to switch off and relax in to sleep and nothing would work. I would find myself sitting at the kitchen bench at 3 in the morning, eating slices of pineapple straight out of a tin, close to tears at the frustration of being so tired but not able to fall asleep.

{Punky - Forty-Six} She was not impressed that I told her off for putting her fingers on the lens of my camera. This was taken just after the meltdown.
