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.

I've been noticing some beautiful rugs on pinterest and I've started to feel the urge to revamp my place with some new rugs. Since staying at this amazing home in Daylesford (pics on Insta) I have wanted to buy myself a jute rug. But, on my search for jute rugs, I came across so many other beautiful rugs, I kinda had to share it in a post.

What do you think about these rugs? Lemme know in the comments below.

I love candles, especially lighting them after you've cleaned the house, about to take a relaxing hot bath or setting up a zen space for yoga. I feel so much more relaxed once a candle is burning. I was sent these two scented candles and I thought I'd show you three ways you can style candles in your home. 
However, there is something special you need to know about these Airwick candles, they change colour when you light them! I was busy taking some photos of these for my Instagram and wanted to light one for the photo and I got the best surprise. I had totally forgot about them being multicolour that it made it so much more exciting to blog about! 

A great place to show off your candles is on your coffee table or pouf. Styling your candle with some soft furnishings like pillows, throws and books can add some nice colour to your lounge and cosy it up. Just don't light the candle near any soft furnishings!

Your side table is a great area to display some cute things you've collected over the years and also to display your decorative candles. I try to change things around in my house every now and then, because I sometimes get sick of seeing the same things.What I've done is grabbed a bunch of my magazines and used them to prop up this marble tray that the candles are sitting in. Then I've added in some beautiful roses that add some colour and height to my side table. Viola! A nicely styled side table! 

Doing your work doesn't mean you can't have some zen vibes going on. Lighting a candle can help keep your stress levels down. Okay, I made that up! But when I was writing my thesis, I was lighting candles in the house because that's what I thought.

These button down skirts are everywhere. I've seen Aimme from Song of Style post an outfit on her insta, to a bunch of skirts on my latest Topshop peek over the weekend!
These skirts will be a must have this summer (soon for us Aussies, okay!?)
I thought I'd show you how some bloggers are wearing them and hopefully inspire you guys to try it out for yourselves!

What do you think about this latest trend, would you wear the button down skirt?
