CREATIVE SLUMP












































I'm one of those people that can sit on the computer for hours, getting lost within beautiful blogs, feeling so inspired to do something creative, my head is bubbling with ideas, yet I'm unable to articulate my ideas, or create them how I'd like. 
I love photography, and my goal in life is to travel as much as i can, capturing the beauty of this world, hence the move to Canada, my issue with this, is i get so scared to share my photos with people, always thinking that they are not good enough, or no one will like them. I'd like to think this is something i can overcome, and hope I'm not the only one out there struggling with this.

FINDING THE BEAUTY IN LIFE




































Take this photo for instance, is it strange that i find this wall so beautiful, even though that graffiti is pretty ugh, well i do, strange right? I don't know if this happened to me overnight, or if it has been a gradual thing as i transition into a young adult, but give me something ugly, or even boring, and i will somehow find it beautiful.

So, it got me thinking, the most mundane occurrences in my everyday life are those that make me the happiest. Sleeping in, reading a magazine, drinking coffee, eating eggs, watching a film, cruising around town, listening to a favourite band, simple joys like these ones are what gets me smiling each day, and isn't that ultimately the goal in life?

IM MOVING TO CANADA






















Can you believe it? It hasn't really sunk in for me yet, but yes i am moving to Canada, and i couldn't be more ecstatic. 
Ever since i took my first trip overseas around three years ago (to New Zealand), i knew- i was meant to travel this world. I was meant to immerse myself in different cultures, explore vast terrains, meet new people, eat great food, and all the other wonderful things that come along with traveling.
So, on the seventeenth of October, i'll be saying au revoir to Australia, and starting a new adventure.
I plan on sharing my experiences through this little place of mine, really as a little keep sake for myself, so in years to come i can look back and think how lucky i was to experience something so precious.

DOWN SOUTH

























I was lucky enough to take some time out from everyday life, and head down south, for a mini road trip.
Little adventures with my family similar to these ones always leave me in awe, Australia really is a spectacularly diverse, beautiful country, which for the most part i take for granted.
We ate great food, shopped in quaint little boutiques, attempted to stay warm, and enjoyed the beauty of our homeland.

BLACK CRANE

Black Crane has recently become one of my favourite clothing brands. Although i only own one piece so far, i'm already eyeing off so many others. I'm particularly drawn to the simplicity, and high quality of each garment, that leaves me feeling so elegant.
I'm currently revamping my wardrobe, going for more simplistic yet elegant pieces that will last the time, and i can honestly see myself still wearing Black Crane in forty years time.

MIX | WINTER IS COMING

Instantly after naming this mix, i couldn't help but laugh, Game of Thrones anyone? Sorry for the disappointment but i'm not actually here to talk about the show, or the books for that matter. But instead here to share a winter inspired mixtape with you.
I'm a born and raised Australian, so we are currently heading into winter. I don't think i will ever get sick of those crisp nights spend inside with family, eating as much as you possibly can, drinking hot tea and coffee, whilst chill tunes play in the background. If you haven't guessed already, i love winter, and in celebration of this wonderful season here's a mixtape!

WELCOME














































Hello lovely people-welcome to littlered.
After being quite a religious blog reader for awhile now, i have finally decided to delve into the world of blogging. I have no clear view for what direction this place will go. All i know is i was in desperate need of a little place of my own, so here we are.
