Just popping by to let you guys know I’ll be taking a short break from blogging over the coming weeks. Things have been a little quiet recently and will be for another few weeks as I’m having carpal tunnel release surgery tomorrow. I’ll still be posting over on Instagram and Snapchat (username: hvnstourniquet) to help prevent cabin fever while I recover, if you’d like to come along for the ride. I can’t wait to get stuck back into things in a few weeks! Wish me luck x

This glorious treasure-trove of handmade goodies has a huge range from local and WA artists and creators, making it the perfect place to buy a gift or something special for yourself. It also makes shopping local super easy – it’s open 6 days a week, so you don’t have to hunt down your favourite artists at the markets or make guesses about the opening times associated with small shops.

For any time you feel sad, or lost, or uncertain – here are 100 wonderful things to think about instead.

I was lucky enough to be invited to see a couple of movies recently and thought I’d share my thoughts on them with you. If you follow me on Snapchat you would’ve seen my immediate reactions – the movies I saw were both incredibly moving but in very different ways.
