Look, I have to be honest: I didn't start 2016 high-fiving myself saying "this is going to be the best year ever!" Just before Christmas, I received some really awful news that I may eventually talk about here, and I'm still dealing with the fallout from that. Needless to say, this news has had a pretty negative impact on me and I've essentially lost all motivation in most aspects of my life. I'm really lucky that I have wonderful, supportive friends around me as the past few months after honestly been some of the hardest of my life.
As such, I haven't really been posting much here, so I thought it might be nice to do a bit of a catch-up with some photos of things that have been happening since January 1, 2016. Hopefully I'll be back to normal soon, but in the meantime here's what I've been up to.
Spent January 1 on Cape Woolamai Beach, Phillip Island / Pretty purchases
Ate gelato on the steps of Parliament / Pledged to do #52FilmsByWomen and started with the incredible A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
Buying cakes from my favourite bakery in Melbourne / Enjoyed the rainy weather after a week of unbearable summer heat
Road tripped to Turpins Falls for a swim / Pre-Lanway Festival selfie
Lanway Festival 2016 was incredible, highlights included Grimes (pictured), CHVRCHES, and Purity Ring
Started reading Anna Karenina / Bought nice things for myself from The Lab Organics
