It’s taken me so long to do this post, but I’m excited to finally share it. It’s from the family summer trip mid-summer. Considering it’s now mid-autumn I have got to share it before the sunshine is a distant memory. This particular day was really fun and exciting for me because I’ve wanted to be a pirate for a very long time. I felt it was silly to have that aspiration without getting the chance to go out on the water, but here I am.

It's time for a new Tuesday Taster from the Bok Bok B'Gerk range. This time I'm sharing another cute kitty from the Theodore and Friends Collection. I adore this brooch and I wear it often. It's another duo, featuring kitty and speech bubble.

I had a job interview today, and as I always do, I walked out thinking of so many examples of the things I could have shared. I did share plenty though, and it made me realise how much I value reflection as part of my personal growth and to remember what I do know at important times like in interviews. I reflect the most through my blog, which I really enjoy sharing with others. That also means that there are things I can’t reflect on here, like confidential matters at work or significant family stresses.

For this Flower Crown Friday I'm giving a recap of my 30th birthday! Happy birthday to me and all that jazz. Last week I celebrated by taking the day off work, visiting my uni in Geelong and hanging out with my sister, mum and nephew as well as a brief dinner date with my buddy Lovisa. It was all really low key. Well, at least from my end. My sister had other plans.

Yesterday when having breakfast at some spiffy Flemington café with my best friend, a waiter brought over my Earl Grey tea. “Oh, you can keep the milk. I’m not an amateur,” I teased him. He looked confused by my joke but whisked it away anyway. This is a regular thing for me, even if I order without milk I get it. Luckily today, someone made that same mistake.

The title of this blog post ‘Red on White’ is going to have an entirely different meaning to about 10 women in my life. I’ve been in a rock band called Kohl for quite a few years now, and one of our songs was called Red on White. While the band gradually stopped playing (we’re looking at a reunion) we never really ‘broke up’. The women who have played in that band have all been a huge influence on my life.

Hello hello! Here's a bit of darling news I've been working on with Michelle at Bok Bok B'Gerk: I'm now a brand ambassador! This means I'll be showcasing pieces of their collection to you regularly and telling you tidbits about the brand and why I love them so much. This brooch set is from the collection of Theodore and Friends, and features kitty Theo and a delicious fish. Theodore is obviously the brooch. This fluffy friend is my aunt's cat, Boots who joined us to see just who Theodore was.
