The more birthdays I experience, the more I like them. The most important thing I’ve learned regarding the annual celebration is to be comfortable telling people it’s my birthday. I’ve got so many great people in my life but if they don’t know it’s on then they won’t have the opportunity to celebrate it with me. Because of this I happily tell people when my birthday will be.

Autumn Picnic

Liana of @findingfemme on an autumn picnic in Daylesford

Autumn is my favourite season by far. Since I haven't been well, my sister, Liv and I decided to have a relaxing day with a picnic lunch, breathing in the woody air in Daylesford. It was a simple set up. Some things you won't see in these pictures are the wasps hovering about the dropped leaves, the tiny spiders that kept dropping on us or little green bugs that ended up all over the blanket. I hated how I looked, particularly because I'm still fighting against this hateful haircut, but there you go. Enjoy!

How My Sister Died

27 Mar 2018


Something I wear quite openly in most of my blog photos is a small tattoo on my left forearm. It’s the logo from a bottle of perfume from the 1920’s, which shares the name of my late sister, Maja (pronounced: May-ah). Often I find that when people spark up a conversation with me about the tattoo, that they become apologetic when they realise it’s related to her death and they feel bad about talking about it, but it’s something that we really, really need to talk about.

Settler and Sons Twilight Dinner

20 Mar 2018


When I arrived at the Settler and Sons dinner, it was at the end of golden hour. I’d driven towards Nowhere Creek as the final light from the sun touched everything it could reach. Thick, lazy light, heavy like honey, oozed over the golden hills. My camera was heavy in my lap and I so wanted to stop and capture every view in every direction just to remember the moment. But, I was late, I couldn’t stop, so I glanced at the golden hills with their purple shadows, the windows of my car lowered, hoping the memory would be tattooed on my heart.

Juliette Has a Gun Masterclass

16 Mar 2018


Whenever I talk to people about the Perfume Masterclasses at Sweet Fern, they have often never thought about what is actually entailed in one. So after I have one yet another Perfume Masterclass visit, I wanted to share the proceedings with you, so can learn more about the mystery of them.
