The roads we travel…

by Kate on September 8, 2014

Over the weekend, I was fortunate enough to disconnect from life for a while and reconnect with myself. A couple of months ago a post on my instagram feed popped up about a weekend yoga retreat being held by Emily, the founder of Travel Light Yoga. I clicked over to the website, had a brief […]


The week that was…

by Kate on May 26, 2013

On Thursday I arrived home after ten very full on days in Manhattan. That place never ceases to amaze me. It is so full of energy and from the moment you arrive, you get swept up in the frenetic pace of it all. I walked, ate, shopped, walked, ate, went to a few favourite places, […]

Hanging out with my favourite people. It was just SO much fun and I left with a very full heart. Happy Birthday mate, love ya x


My Creative Space

by Kate on August 9, 2012

It has been a little while since I played along with Kirst but a promise is a promise and well I think my tip is a goodie. For me, staying creative is about connecting with like-minded crafty people. Regular readers will know that the main reason I started this space was to connect with like-minded […]


The hunt

by Kate on June 8, 2012

I had a lovely weekend, spent with my most favourite friend. Copious amounts of gingerbreads were consumed and lots of laughs were had. I was gifted some gorgeous blue glass and the collection is back to its best. The Juki was sold and replaced with a very, very special piece – the blue horse. Popped […]


Oh look, tag…

If you are a long time reader, you may have come to the conclusion that this space isn’t about the ‘real’ me. I generally only post stuff that has a crafty spin because I just don’t think that this space could ever really be a true representation of me and who I am. The thought […]


Summer Haze

by Kate on January 3, 2012

It seems Sydney has finally decided to turn on a bit of Summer weather not that I am getting too excited. The bureau informs us that we are going to experience one of the coldest Summers in 50 years. We headed down to Coledale, a great spot 50 minutes south of Sydney and given the […]


The new horizon

by Kate on January 2, 2012

For me, the start of a new year is all about looking at what has been and what may come. 2011 was a big year. The start of school for Maddie The start of daycare for Alfie Two kid free days to myself Sad goodbyes – *sob* An interstate move A school change for Maddie […]


The last four days…

by Kate on September 12, 2011

We flew to Sydney, dropped off the kids and lost the bags. Arrived here a day late but saw some humpbacks on the way. Enjoyed the warmth of the sun. Made the most of the quiet. Read two books and loved both. Have eaten more food than I thought possible. Savoured a pretty drink…or two…or […]

by Kate on August 27, 2011

At the end of the month, my family and I will be leaving Melbourne and moving back to Sydney. Our stint down here was always a temporary one and although I am thrilled to be moving back home, I will miss Melbourne – a lot. Which got me thinking. What makes a place? I think […]
