My Home Tour

The last time I did a home tour on this blog, I lived in New Farm and had recently moved into a new apartment. It was a little sparse and although there were some things that were my style (hello parquet flooring), there were definitely things that weren’t (cream walls, I’m looking at...

Trend I Love: Modern Farmhouse

I don’t think it’s any great secret that in my dream scenario, I would love in a period farmhouse, with chickens in the backyard, children running around and dogs scampering after them. At this point in life, my idol is Joanna Gaines – and I’m okay with that. So it...

August Goals

Happy August friends! How is it August already? Somehow, despite the cold weather, wind and copious amounts of tea, August always means the end of summer to me. The excitement of buying new school supplies, spending those final days of summer with friends and family before school starts up again. I...

July :: Love List

Hey friends! Over the years, there have been a couple of iterations of this. We’ve had The Weekly Edit, Loving Lately, 5 Under 50 and {Friday Faves} – all of which, I’ll be honest, was too much work. I love this little space on the interwebs, but between home and work, it can...

My Favourite Neutral Cushions Under $100

I know for a fact that I’m not alone in being a cushion addict. In fact, it’s a constant battle at my house – I would happily have the sofa, armchair and beds full of pillows, Rob, on the other hand, would be happy with none. I also know that I’m not the only one that falls...

Trend I Love: New Victorian

I’ve been in love with this trend so waaay longer than I should admit (we’re talking at least 5 plus years), but when you love something, you can’t help it. I don’t think it helped my cause that one of my dear friends lived in a Victorian home until around 6 months ago so I...

Capsule Shoe Wardrobe

Boy, how has it been over 6 weeks since I last blogged? I knew it had been a while (and I’d been having all the blogging guilt about it) but I didn’t realise it had been quite that long. I think it’s mainly because I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write, so instead, I just...

June Goals

Holy crap, how is it June already? I swear it was March two seconds ago and now we’re officially started the second half of the year! May was a weird month for me. Good but weird. I turned 31, cut my hair off, lost one client but gained another, flew to Melbourne and back in just under 18...

Winter Capsule Wardrobe: Wish List

Hi lovely! I’ve been sorting out my Winter Capsule Wardrobe this week, and whilst I’m not quite ready to share it with you yet, I thought I would share my wishlist with you! As this is the first year I’ve done a capsule wardrobe, there are a few gaps in my wardrobe. But...

A Simpkins Adventure: Montville

This past Monday was a bank holiday here in Queensland. And even though it was raining, I decided not to waste it inside. I have wanted to visit Montville pretty much since we moved here over four years ago but it’s not really Rob’s thing, so I decided to go solo and I had a lovely...

On Recipe Journals

I have what may seem a slightly odd question for you today. Do you have a recipe journal? No? Then why not? I do, and this is why… In this age of Pinterest, blogs and Instagram, recipe journals may seem a little redundant but in much the same way I will never give up books for a Kindle (even...

May Goals

I can’t believe that, as I write this, there are only a couple of days left in April. And that, in less than a month, I will be 31. Thirty was not what I expected, in the slightest. And most of the goals I set for myself to achieve in my 30th year didn’t happen. But I’m okay with...
