Creativity is all around. You just need to look around. Some might look down on street art. I see it a form of expression in the most public of spaces. Swipe to see what I saw in LA today.

Los Angeles. City of angels.

Packing for holidays is so hard. When you wanna take everything but you know you're going to find heaps of cool shit to buy while you're away. Here are some of my faves coming with me...

I'm sitting on the couch looking through my 20,596 photos on my laptop (I know, it's disgusting and the thought of moving them off the hard drive nearly gives me hives) and I found this one of a flower crown workshop we ran with @chelseasflowercrowns for the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week back in 2014. To me it only feels like a year ago, but even I, a person who is not great at maths, can work out it was more than a year ago. Reminiscing about all the awesome things Unleash Creative has been a part of over the years makes me realise just how much I have accomplished. I think it's important to reflect on achievements, learn from mistakes and grow as a person. Even if I don't quite know just how to do that right now. But I know in time I'll find my next adventure. Whatever that may be.

It wasn't until around 3pm this afternoon whilst sitting at the park that I realised my nails and #adventuretime tights were a little matchy matchy. Zoom in to see the speckled detail on my nails. Just avoid looking at my dry cuticles please. Winter making everything so awfully dry. Galactic purple for the win today. Plus colour makes everything better. ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿป๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ”ฎ๐ŸŽ†๐Ÿ’œโœจ

I'm super sad to hear that fellow creative and friend @emmavanleest sadly lost her battle with Hodgkins Lymphoma early yesterday morning. I first stumbled upon the delightful Emma when I was looking for creative mentors for the first ever Unleash Creative Melbourne event back in 2014 (Emma is pictured here with the other three creative mentors for that inaugural event). She had mad paper-cutting skills and was a genuinely lovely human being. I can't even imagine the long, sad and difficult situation her family now face including her amazingly supportive husband Hunter and their two young ones Koen and Saskia. She'll forever be in my thoughts as one hell of a scalpel-knife wielding woman. Because people should be remembered for all their greatness instead of the way they exited this world. โœจSqueeze your loved ones extra tight today. And every day.

Fresh sheet day โœจ. Basically the best domestic day of the week. And also, what has my life become that I get excited about fresh sheets ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ. It's the little things though, right? Hands up if you love clean sheets day!? ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿผ

Still coming down from one of the most amazing events I've had the privilege of organising. Saturday's Etsy Community Market powered by Square was months of work. Over 100 local @etsyau stallholders, live music acts, a food precinct, craft workshops and a live art demo by @dannisimpsonmua for @ironlakartanddesign. Huge! And exhausting. But so much fun to see it all come together.
Working the past 5 months has taken it out of me. So I'm now taking some extended time out to hang with my peeps, do some holidaying (eek, two weeks to go) and then maybe back to a little freelance work. ๐Ÿ“ท of some of the #etsyxsquarebrisbane action by @amanda_peppermintphotography

My baby turned 5 today. So naturally her day was full of rainbows ๐ŸŒˆ unicorns ๐Ÿฆ„ cupcakes, streamers and magical presents. Like this custom candy heart necklace with her name on it which I ordered through @originals_lab. We also discovered it's scented. I didn't think she could love it more than I do. But she does. She had to show all her teachers at daycare today. Can't thank you enough Yvonne @originals_lab. You made our day ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐ŸŒˆโœจand now she has an adorable keepsake.

That time I went on holidays. Seems like a lifetime ago. Dreaming of my next adventure which is just a few weeks away. Can't say where I'm going because it's a surprise for my lover's 40th ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Dreaming of fairy bread cookies ๐Ÿช. They were a limited edition flavour release through @badassbiscuitco a little while back. And they were darn delicious.

Quite possibly one of the most difficult colour jobs to capture on camera. Pale mint roots, turquoise mid-lengths and peacock blue ends. This photo doesn't even capture the complete vibrancy of those blues but I've given up trying at different times of the day. And filters just blow it out. So I figured I best just share it before it fades to a nasty washed-out dirty blue. How long do you think I can get away with dry-shampooing my hair before it falls out!? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚ thanks to my lovely Jas @ladylockshairparlour for this one!
