New House - My Room

creative bedroom styling
I already gave some clues to my new room in this last post but today I'm showing you my full room tour.  It's the first room I've lived in as an adult where I haven't had to store most of my belongings in and one which hasn't had carpet - double yay! I've enjoyed styling it so much! During some heavy rain I did notice the windows start to leak so I had to do a switch-a-roo with my book shelf (made of books) and my filing cabinet but that's only a little hiccup!

My favourite things about rooms are all the little details! I'm sure you'll spy lots of things I've shared over the years, on my blog - it was nice to be able to put my favourite things into one space!

I also dig that the room has lots of little pops of colour!

It's utterly amazing having a room void of ugly storage boxes and a space that's happy and really easy to keep clean and tidy!

Year of Blooms - October

blog flower project

azaleas flowers
So with October came a lot of flowers! 
We're definitely in the thick of Spring here in Australia :)

 A local bush, came abundant with pink azaleas so I took the opportunity to do some mini shoots with my wooden stands which I'm sure I'll be flooding my instagram with at some point (#sorrynotsorry :P)

red flowers with rain drops

It also rained a lot which I'm sure the flowers loved!

october spelled out in flowers

planting sunflowers
This month, I planted the sunflower seeds that I got when I went to visit Ben's Nephew at the start of the year. They have already sprouted so I'm super excited to see them grow tall!

Rose Easter Cactus

I picked up a Hatiora Rosea (aka Rose Easter Cactus) from Bunning the other day, I knew nothing about the plant but the little pink buds sold me straight away.  To my surprise those buds opened into flowers a few weeks later - a definite face palm moment but also a super excited face too!

Ben also bought me a sweet bouquet!
