5 things December | Celebrating the everyday



It’s no secret that I love my recipes books. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably would have seen a few dishes from here! ‘It’s all Good’ by Gwyneth Paltrow is on the top of my stack at the moment. As well as having deliciously healthy simple meal ideas, the photography, design and even the quality of the page stock in this book makes me want to keep coming back.


Another book! Daring Greatly, by Brene Brown. This book is honestly life changing! Seriously. Brene talks about how vulnerability has the power to transform each aspect of our lives. I see vulnerability and shame in a completely different light after reading this powerful book. “Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.” Check out Brene’s Ted Talk here.


I’ve generally bought different things from the supermarket from my skin, but have never been completely satisfied with the results. So when I was at the duty free counter (always dangerous!) in the airport a few months ago I invested in some beautiful products from Origin. I love this natural range, it’s so nice to have a proper routine for my skin. Even if it doesn’t always happen…like on those nights where the only thing you can be bothered with is a quick swipe of a face wipe before collapsing into bed, it’s still reassuring to have it there.


Emily Ley’s Simplified Planner. I’ve never used a binder planner before, so it will interesting to see if this gets used frequently. This one will live on my desk, and I’ll still have a little diary for my handbag and of course my Google Calandar on my phone. I love the sections you can customise, and that I can use it to hold everything. I’m used to scribbling down things in random notebooks, so it will be great to have everything in one place. I’m also using Lara Casey’s 2014 Power Sheets in here, which is getting me so excited for 2014.


Love never fails. Print by the amazing Lara Casey. A beautiful reminder that will live on my desk.

What are some things you are loving at the moment? I hope you have some wonderful plans for the weekend! I’m photographing Hilary and Gary’s wedding tomorrow at the beautiful Yering Station, so exciting! I’m also going to New Zealand for Christmas on Sunday, I can’t wait to see my family again! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and that life is sweet for you right now. It’s such a crazy time of year, but I hope you can take a moment to soak all the goodness of the holidays in! xx
