While I know that consistency is key, I’m beginning to doubt I’ll ever have it. I think I’m ok with that.
The past few weeks have been busy and I know the next few are going to be even more hectic. Things are finally starting to happen in this life of mine, big things. Watch this space…
With the Spring Cup Carnival now in full swing, it’s time to sort out your outfits! This year I am going to two events, my local cup in Geelong and Oaks Day in Melbourne. I have never been to a Melbourne racing event before, so I’m really excited to get all dressed up and hit the track! In celebration of racing season, I’ve put together a little style guide for three of the main events. Hopefully you can find some inspiration, as it can be a really difficult thing to shop for!
First up is The Melbourne Cup, which is all about bright colours, bold prints and statement making silhouettes. Experiment with fun accessories and don’t be afraid to try something a little out of your comfort zone! Check out these dresses at Beginning Boutique.
The Derby Day dress code may be traditional black and white, but that doesn’t mean your outfit has to fall short! White lace is a great option for this event as well as quirky prints and unique shapes. Go for something chic over classic, Dissh have a great selection.
Oaks Day – otherwise known as Ladies Day – is all about embracing your femininity. Midi dresses and skirts are a hot on trend MUST for keeping it classy, try a block colour or fun print. Florals are also great for keeping to the theme and anything that you can twirl in gets my tick of approval! Check out Showpony for more ideas.
What Spring Racing events are you going to?
With the weather gradually getting warmer and the days longer, I have been spending the last couple of weeks organising myself. After a cold couple of months and 5 weeks spend abroad, I have been inspired to change things up a little and I figure, what better time to do it?
Recently, I’ve been experimenting with the paleo diet; not only to lose those extra kg’s, but also for my health’s sake. I’m a big fan of processed food, so I have definitely found the change to be quite significant; it was a pretty hard adjustment to get used to at the start. I have to say though, I’ve actually really started to get into it. It’s brought out my creative flair in the kitchen and I’ve really enjoyed experimenting with different meals and recipes. For this reason, I’m hoping to take what I’ve learnt and put it into practice a lot more often.
Ironically, I’ve also been inspired to get back into baking! I used to bake all the time, especially when I was stressed out about something; it’s so therapeutic. Cooking in general is something I’d like to do more often.
Finally, my workspace is in definite need of a little refresh, so I’m looking forward to adding some bits and pieces to it and generally cleaning up the area. Anyone with a computer will also understand my need to organise all my files and folders; it’s actually ridiculous how messy it’s gotten and is in definite need of a good clean up.
Do you have any inspired plans for Spring? x
