Each Friday, I’ll post a weekly roundup of things I’ve found online that I’d like to share! Here’s the first installation…
♥ I often wonder if it’s possible to really have it all. As a woman today it is tough feeling like we’re pulled in so many different directions – career, family, what we want to do, what society thinks we should do… Sarah Wilson writes that maybe this would be possible, well, if she had a wife…
♥ HausWitch has become my new go-to blog for ideas about decorating and home-prettifying on a budget.
♥ Absolutely adored Illy’s Like a Version medley on Triple J – covering the likes of Silverchair, Hilltop Hoods, Paul Kelly and Flume – it gave me goosebumps and I now have it on high rotation!
♥ Cassie from the Veda House came up with a series of much more interesting questions to ask new clients to get to know them and their business on a deeper basis.
♥ Dolla dolls bill y’all – how do you handle your money? Isn’t it funny how some things we pay for, others we wouldn’t dream of?!
♥ I have a feeling that understanding the power of setting a schedule as opposed to setting deadlines, is really going to help me achieve my goals.
♥ I’m in love with Jaymee’s simple yet homely interior, what a beautiful peek into her home.
Inner-city north Brisbanites have an exciting new option to occupy the end of their weeks – Eat Street Markets at Northshore, Hamilton Wharf. – just a few kilometres north of Brisbane CBD.
‘Eat Street‘ is a wonderment of the senses. From aromatic international cuisines and vibrant textiles, to the enchanting sights and sounds of our live performers, Hamilton Wharf plays host to Brisbane’s newest and most interactive market experience, every Friday and Saturday evening (4pm til 10pm), from Friday, November 8, 2013.
Currently, there are a bunch of pop-up shops, art galleries and performance spaces in shipping containers as part of the Containerval Festival.
Mike and I attended on Friday night, but only for the last hour and a bit – there was so much to see that we are definitely going back next weekend! Such an interesting idea and great use of space in this up & coming neighbourhood – the whole area will be bustling in a couple of years. I absolutely adored the porcelain wares in Erin Lightfoot‘s pop-up shop, displaying her new range of bright, geometry-inspired cups, vases and jewellery. I also have to mention the delicious potato slinks (“it’s like chips on a stick!”) and the delectable strawberries & cream ice cream at Lick. Can’t wait to go back and explore (& eat!) some more!
I’ve decided to publish this list publicly to make myself more accountable in completing it. What is 25 by 25? Simply put, a list of 25 things I would like to do by the time I turn 25.
By the time I have spent a quarter of a century living, I hope to do the following (in no particular order):
- go on an overseas adventure (10 years between trips is way too long!)
- do SOMETHING with the multiple small rectangular blank canvases I purchased in 2010
- complete the first year of my diploma
- get another tattoo
- exercise regularly for an extended period of time
- make a voluntary contribution to my super fund
- teach myself to mend the bag of clothes that need mending
- learn to make jewellery
- revamp my wardrobe
- try a healthy detox
- see a movie alone
- start blogging again
- fall in love with my day job
- take an art class
- attend a networking event
- have a picnic
- carry something large on my bicycle
- host a murder mystery dinner
- find a solution for our lack of dining table
- have some photos printed
- learn how to brew the perfect tea
- utilise my lynda.com membership
- go on a family outing
- do something with the things I’ve been cutting out of magazines
- conquer a fear
I guess I better get cracking because my 25th birthday (not sure if I like saying that yet!) is only 179 days away, if my calculations are correct! Of course, I will post here to elaborate as I tick things off my list.
What are your current goals? Have you given yourself a deadline?
This will be a functioning web site again soon, I promise!
