love people: we are kingdom ethical fashion market


A big SHOUT OUT to Hannah, blogger extraordinaire, creator of We Are Kingdom, ethical shopper, and all round great person. We Are Kingdom is a Melbourne-based, ethical lifestyle blog and soon-to-be ethical event organisation that seeks to see the the justice of the kingdom of Heaven here on earth. If you're in Melbourne this weekend, don't miss We Are Kingdom's debut ethical fashion event. In addition to pieces from Hannah's wonderful wardrobe, you will be able to buy from an awesome range of pre-loved clothes, jewellery, shoes, scarves and hats and learn more about ethical living! So make sure you head to the Salvos, 17-23 Nelson Road Box Hill tomorrow between 10am and 3pm. 

And the best part is, not only will you be buying in a super fashionable, planet-saving, ethical kind-of-way, all proceeds will be going to the Box Hill Salvation Army's emergency relief program. It's so much goodness in one spot, I can hardly contain my excitement! Here is a sneak peek at some of the goodies on offer (as modelled by Hannah herself and her helpful sidekick Naomi).

love your life: brunch at miss frank


If there's one thing I've missed lately, it's a good weekend brunch. Between house inspections, packing and moving, we've hardly had time to throw some bread in the toaster, let alone enjoy some quality food and each other's company.

But brunch is honestly my favourite meal of the day. So recently, we decided to rectify the situation and had a lazy morning at Miss Frank in Melbourne's east (Camberwell). I had one of the specials, because I can never pass up a good avo smash, and this one came with pomegranate (little pops of goodness), goat's curd, snow pea tendrils, chia seeds (super food so...), lemon and sour dough bread. Needless to say, it was amazing.

So, if you're in the east and looking for a great feed in a trendy little spot, you need not drive into Richmond- Miss Frank is worth a visit.

make time,

love your life: artfully displayed

Last week we moved into our first home which means that I have gone home decoration (and pinterest) mad! It's so much fun thinking up different ways to make this house our home. 

One of my must-haves is a feature wall filled with photos and prints that represent us as a family. I can't wait to carefully curate my collection. Here are some print walls that have got me inspired. You can find more home inspiration over on my Pinterest page here

happy picture hanging,

love people: maya angelou

image from huffingtonpost.com

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.


Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.



Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me. 



thank you Maya,

love your body: tropical breakfast smoothie


There's something so refreshing about starting the day with a smoothie filled with delicious tropical fruits. I've woken up to the sound of rain on the roof (ergh...) so this morning, I'm trying some reverse psychology- it sounds like winter, but my smoothie says summer...

what you'll need:
1/2 cup coconut water
1/4 cup organic greek yoghurt
1/2 banana chopped and frozen*
1/4 large peach chopped and frozen
1 passionfruit, pulp frozen
1 teaspoon chia seeds

how to make it:
Put all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth
Pour into a glass and enjoy!

*Preparation is the key here. I pre chop my fruit and freeze in zip lock bags (banana) and ice cube trays (passionfruit pulp).

gorgeous mornings,
sarah x
