Spring Treats at Sweet Fern

It's so easy when thinking about perfume and spring to think of floral scents, however, a perfume masterclass at Sweet Fern for the season turned out to be way different to that image. One of the greatest things about Sweet Fern is that they can take anyone from knowing nothing about perfume to an informed position where they can start choosing fragrances that they love. To do this they use the fragrance wheel, showing 13 different perfumes and explaining their histories and nuances. This time, it was with the added sensory connecting of eating sweets. To celebrate the arrival of spring I also wore this divine Thurley dress from Blanc Boutique, which would make an iconic outfit for Spring Races with the right accessories.

It’s a once in a lifetime thing when your regional Australian hometown hosts forty pieces of art from the Musée de la Chartreuse.

Today's post will be picture heavy, so I hope you enjoy the pretty shots. I'm trying to rock my curls lately thanks to the hairdressing skills of Chelsea at Eve Salon. She's the first hairdresser I've ever had that has styled my hair curly. She was so keen to try it and I was kind of indifferent so I let her do what she wanted. Her passion for my curls was super infectious and I couldn't help but leave feeling like I was as curious about what my hair could be as she was. I'm not a hair girl. I do like my hair to be nice, it does seriously knock my confidence when it isn't, but I'd be lying if I said I washed it more than once a week. You hear right. I don't like washing my hair or styling it or looking after it. I intentionally have my natural colour so I don't have to visit the hairdresser. I'm growing it. Also so I don't have to visit the hairdresser. I have one style I like and it modifies as it gets dirtier and the curl starts to ebb back into it. If it gets too long I flip it to one side to the cowlick on my forehead can be free. Curls? Not a chance.

My friend Nat has this tattoo on his ribs. It has the word ‘comfort zone’, surrounded by a circle and outside the circle, further along his skin is the word ‘dreams’. It’s a concept most people are familiar with: our dreams lay outside our comfort zone. This year has been critical for me in understanding the concept of my comfort zone and why the heck I would ever want to get outside of it.

Who do you think you are? I am someone who has worked hard to become very sure of who I am. It’s interesting how we learn to define ourselves. The things I knew defined who I was were things like I liked to wear flowing skirts, I loved straw boaters, I didn’t ever paint my nails, I loved weights at the gym and I hated outdoors. It’s interesting, the long list of things that I thought defined who I was. After all, it’s just a list.
