I'm sick of all the clutter in my life - it's annoying and makes me feel messy. So, I've started to do something about it. 

First it's the bedroom. I went through all my clothes and donated so many bags of clothes, shoes and stuff I was 'holding on to'.  I think I've mentioned cleaning out my wardrobe SO many times on my blog, but I haven't been so brutal about it, ever. It felt so good to donate the items and not have them sitting in my cupboards for the off chance I might wear them again, or keeping them in a bag to sell one day.  

I sold a clothes rack on Gumtree and gave away a chest of drawers. I'm returning some other drawers to the family home and I should have a pretty minimal room. My plan is to sell the bed frame, bed head and rug and just have a super simple room.

To inspire you to clean out and minimise your bedroom, I've selected some inspirational images from Pinterest

Here's the second Izabel London dress. I'm actually not impressed by this dress very much and I was looking forward to it the most. I thought the material would be soft and velvet-y. It's the complete opposite. The material is a little rough and feels a bit cheap.

I wore this for a day at work and I came home, got changed into my PJ's to find that my entire beige singlet (it's winter okay!) was coloured black and so were my arms and armpits - the black dye from the dress had rubbed off onto my clothes and it also ruined my comfy bra too!
So, I'm pretty weary about wearing this dress again especially because the dye rubbing off.

First of all, I want to thank Adrian for taking these pictures of me with a bandaged finger from his kitchen accident last week. 

I was sent two dresses from Izabel London to showcase to you guys - here's one of them! I wouldn't normally pick a dress like this. Maybe I've watched too much Pretty Little Lairs or something. This dress is really soft and flows nicely. I kind of don't mind the cut outs at the front, they're not too much and add something extra to a would be basic dress. The gold belt came with this dress - I left it on because, I thought it looked nice and it also cinches in my waist - which during mid winter, I feel happy about. (Too much Netflix and snacks for me).

In an attempt to redeem my blog and give you guys something new to read, I'm posting about a nice weekend away I had with Adrian a few months back in Daylesford. First, I just want to tell you a little about my absence. In the past three weeks: I've gotten the flu, started a cool temp back filling role where I work and sat in hospital emergency two nights in a row, because Adrian nearly cut his finger off using a slicer. All in all, my life has been hectic and I've but a few things on the back burner, e.g. blogging. 

On a happier note - I'm sharing this with you because it was so beautiful. I first heard about this place maybe 3 years ago and I've wanted to go. I fell in love with the bathroom (that tub!), styling and decor. I'm pretty sure I've seen this house all over Pinterest! 
Adrian and I didn't want to leave this house, it was amazing. We spent a night in The White House and it wasn't enough. We sat in the garden and watched the sky, cooked a romantic dinner, made hot coco and read old stories from the library in bed.
