I haven’t done one of these in a while and I’ve had some beautiful things come into my life lately, you know, just little things that deserve a spotlight every now and again because they add a little smile to your day.

I thought I’d put together a list and share with you 5 things making my life more beautiful this week and hopefully inspire you to check them out or make your own list!



Daily Love: Growing Into Grace
by Mastin Kipp


I stumbled upon Mastin Kipp’s book ‘Daily Love:Growing Into Grace’ earlier this week and I accidentally devoured it. Although I often tend to shy away from the super spiritual, Mastin’s story is completely captivating and humble to boot.

His journey is a true Hollywood story, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s turned into a movie or HBO miniseries one day. It’s almost hard to believe it’s true, but there’s a raw honesty to Mastin that is so genuine, I couldn’t put it down. I particularly liked his emphasis on taking a book like this and actually DOING something because of it, making it more than spiritual entertainment and actually something you can learn from.

And, until September 21st you can buy his book here and grab a few ‘thank you’ bonuses from the man himself. (This isn’t an affiliate link, I just want you to know so you don’t miss out!)



Kikki K Lilac Planner & Live Bright Collection

The evil geniuses at Kikki K created a stunning promo video for their new Live Bright collection. I absolutely had to have one because it was too cute to say no to and it matches my website (can you really blame me?).

I’ve always been into a paper diary (the iCalendar just doesn’t do it for me), I haven’t ever been this serious about getting organised and doing it in such a pretty way. But here we are (check out some of my snaps on Instagram, it’s getting out of control).



My spring + coffee working combination

I’ve made a huge commitment to myself to get out of the house more. I get into a homebody state, especially while it’s been cold and rainy in Sydney and then I find it a little too easy to stay in the house, in my little bubble (and my no-makeup + trackies zone) but as it’s warmer and Spring is, by far my favourite season, I’m getting out and about in my area, taking myseft and my laptop out for coffee, fresh air, and a change of scenery for some extra inspiration.

What do you love doing in Spring?



Naomi’s Wellness Toolkit


My beautiful client and friend, Naomi, recently launched her site, Project Healthy Happy Me, last week and I’m just absolutely in love with her free toolkit. Beautifully designed and chock full of tips and tricks to feel better about…everything, this toolkit features worksheets to get your life back in order (I think The Icky Housework planner is my favourite, but they’re all amazing!)

Because Naomi is generous and wonderful, you can get all of this for free from here so you have no excuse to not be as organised as this lovely lady!



Sparks by Imogen Heap

Imogen Heap Sparks (1)

I have been listening to Sparks ON REPEAT. It’s not even available in Australia yet but, lucky for me, the entire album is available on YouTube (in a playlist and everything so you don’t even have to go looking for them). I have listened to this album so many times lately that I know it will be one of those albums that takes me back to this exact moment in my life whenever i hear it.

I was going to say my favourite track is The Listening Chair, but to be honest, I have so many favourites from this album, that’s why it’s so easy for me to just keep listening!



What are you loving right now? What little things can you celebrate that are making your life more beautiful? Put a list up on Facebook (or in the comments), take a photo on Instagram and #thebeautyoflife – let’s enjoy the simple pleasures.
