Life, updated

Hi everyone.

I know I haven’t really blogged, like, at all this year. I guess it was a combination of factors. After returning from holidaying in the Gold Coast, I returned to work. As soon as I started back, it was full-on. I was working long hours and had a lot to do. Stress soon took over and with added stress, depression started to take hold again. I found the black dog had well and truly come to stay. In order to get back to my happy place, I knew I had to make changes. I just didn’t know what. In the end, I decided to resign from my job. It was an incredibly hard decision. The people I worked with are absolutely awesome and I miss seeing them everyday. Soon after I had resigned, Man Piece got a job offer in Wellington. It was an easy decision to make, as moving back to Wellington was always our end game. Instead of looking for a new job in Sydney, I began packing up my life and looking for jobs in Wellington.

We’ve been back about a week and a half now. I can feel happy returning and the creative juices beginning to flow. For the first time in months I actually want to blog! And write and go out and see friends. A huge change from only a few months ago.

So, to catch you all up on my life in the last few months, and some of the outfits I have worn, here is a post full of pictures and outfits.

Vivid Sydney

Last weekend I went down to check out Vivid Sydney with my aunt and experiment with doing some night photography.

It was actually so much fun. I hadn’t picked up a camera in months, so it felt good to be behind the lens again.

I would highly recommend going to check out some of the installations if you’re in Sydney, but it does get quite hectic with all the people around.

Here are a few of my snaps, but you can check the rest out on my Flick (which they now give you 1TB of space! Score! I’m totally going to utilise this so much more.)

Sydney So Far…

I haven’t done a personal update in a while, so I thought it was time.

As many of you would have deduced by now, Man Piece and I did not end up in Melbourne, but instead moved to Sydney.

Man Piece got a job offer so we decided to just go. We’ve since found a nice little inner-city apartment and even I have found a job. I thought it would take me awhile, but I found a one fairly quickly, which was quite surprising.

But I thought I would catch you up on what I have been up to for the last two months –  Man Piece and I have been here for 10 weeks now.

And I decided to be a little creative. I have recently found some really good picture framing apps on my phone, a lot better than the ones I have used before.

So I present to you, Sydney So Far…
