Guess Who Got Married?




Me and Dean! After eight years, 13 trips between our countries, and a significant change in plans, me and Dean finally got married on June 17 - a casual 6 months before we planned to! If you read any of my Wedding Planning posts, you'll know that I genuinely did not give a damn about the details. Flowers, napkins, and centerpieces never seemed like more than a waste of money to me, so when I ended up in Australia eight months earlier than we planned, I just said fuck it. We canceled the reception venue we had chosen back in October and moved our wedding date up to the closest availability. We married in a simple 10 minute ceremony at the Parramatta BDM Registry, in front of Dean's parents and sister, plus our five closest friends. The celebrant was sassy and straightforward, she really kept it all low key. Following the wedding, we parted ways with the family, and met a few more friends at Nando's for dinner, then headed back home. We partied with friends all weekend and had a great time. While it may not seem like much to most of you, after nearly a decade and so much immigration bullshit, this is exactly the wedding Dean and I wanted. Quick, easy, and just about stress-free - I only would've changed one thing - I really wish my mum and best friend Tom had been there. We plan to celebrate with them in a few months. Anyway, that's why I've been so busy lately, I should be getting back to my normal posts soon!

May 2016 Favorites+Blogs of the Month





It's been a while since my last Favorites post, hasn't it? The last one to go up was my February Favorites! I didn't have time to finish my March favorites - I had to rush out the door and to the airport, leaving it unfinished in my drafts.Then,  April came and went, and I was too jetlagged and uninspired to wear or care about makeup and the like, so there were no clear favorites to share. May was a much better month for me, and I had some standout favorites. The way I share my favorites is a little different now, I've decided to add a couple more categories instead of having one long "other". Click through to see what I loved in the month of May.
