The Newport

The Newport is as incredible as you can imagine. Every last detail has been thought about - it's absolutely gorgeous and the interiors haven't even been completed yet! 

I've been shooting some social media content for The Newport and these images are from the last three times I've been there. If you've not been yet, it's definitely worth s visit - particularly on a sunny Sunday afternoon. So dreamy!

Insights #1

This house is across the road from us so whenever I pull out of our driveway I'm always blown away by how cute & perfect it looks with all the greenery & the two trees framing it so beautifully. Definitely something I love about driving out of the house every morning when I drop George at the train station :)

Recently, I've been going through what feels to me like a biggg mindset transformation.....and it's been soo good for me! For the past couple of months, I've been listening to some really great podcasts while I edit photos. One of them is Being Boss by Emily Thompson & Kathleen Shannon and through them I discovered Marie Forleo and her amazing videos! LOVE THEM so much! I just have them playing in the background while editing away and it makes me feel so reassured & inspired rather than bored & tired.

Then today I re-discovered Chase Jarvis and was absolutely blown away by his 30 days of Genius interviews with some of the world’s best creators, innovators, and entrepreneurs (Marie is one of them, along with soo many more incredible people, including Brene Brown who is also insanely amazing).

SO while I was at the park this afternoon with Winston, listening to The Chase Jarvis Live Show podcast (the one with Seth Godin) I was inspired to start a new 'insights' series on TLT. Essentially it will be regular posts that include just one super recent photo + some words on life, thoughts, feelings, dreams, goals & ya know....just whatever :) My goal for it is just to share without caring about it too much! "Done is better than perfect"

Highlights from the June Long Weekend


Ahh this super long weekend was such a marvellous little treat! It started on my birthday; Thursday the 9th. George took an annual leave day off work and we celebrated with beautiful presents, balloons, streamers, champagne & sparklers in the morning before going out for breakfast together to Hunter Gatherer in North Sydney. It was such a perfect way to start the day.

We then took Winston out to the dog beach because I am totally obsessed with that place - it's so much fun! After a little while there, we came home, had some birthday cake & more champagne and went out for mulled wine at Small Bar and a casual Indian together to Raavi's Cumin in Crows Nest. It was actually one of my all time favourite birthdays!! It's totally all about the little things!! :) :) We celebrated again the following night at A Tavola in Darlinghurst with the family. I'd been dying to go for ages & it was totally worth the wait; it was incredible!

The rest of the weekend, we spent all our time with Eddy (#threemusketeers) who finished his exams on the Friday morning. We caught up with Grandma over coffee, adventured around on mini road trips up to the central coast, had a late lunch at The Newport, watched the rugby at home, caught up with friends, played Madden & just generally soaked up every minute of having the luxury of five straight days off together :)
