Coffee Flavoured Doughnuts And Lynch

All has been revealed!

After a week of eluding to something big coming our way, the countdown hit zero, announcing the release of Psychogenic Fugue – a 20 min movie in which John Malkovich plays David Lynch and 7 other Lynch themed movie characters! You can watch it via a donation to the David Lynch Foundation, and with Log Lady being one of the characters portrayed (yes!!) I can’t wait to get home and watch it!

Do you remember these beaded daisy chain necklaces? My friend mentioned wanting stacks and stacks of long 90s style beaded necklaces and it took me back to my teen years of obsessively making these necklaces and bracelets with friends.
Anyway – she has requested that I make her one (some?), so now I’m scouring the net for a simple tutorial – it has been quite a number of years since I last gave it a go! This one here looks like the best so far, so I’ll have to find some beads and see how I go.

You know my love of doughnuts right? This recipe from Gather Journal is my dream! Coffee infused donuts?! Ahhh dreamland! Can someone please make them for me? Pretty please? I’ve had plans to bake cookies for the past 2 weeks now, but I’ve just ended up slowly(ish) eating the bag of smarties that were set to be their “decoration” haha πŸ˜‰

Vista Tiny homes have released a new model – the Vista Go – which is priced at under $40k! It’s even more compact, but still in the incredible vista style! It’s got me wanting to move to the USA and spend my days roaming the country!

August dreaming

August is finally here which means it’s birthday month time wooohooo!

And while I still (technically…) have a week to go, there’s nothing against spending an entire month celebrating, right?! at least till i pass the birthday baton onto my sister-in-law later in the month πŸ˜‰

The days are (slowly!) getting longer and Spring is nearly here, so I thought I’d start the month off by sharing a few videos that have had me all heart eyes of late β™₯

The full unveiling of the Alpha Tiny House

Holy crap you guys – New Frontier Tiny Homes has just blown me away with all the features and functions of the Alpha Tiny House. The kitchen is bigger than my current kitchen and it has a full bath?!! YES!! This is actually my dream house!! β™₯ Check out the video above to see the full tour – it’s just incredible!

Prepd Pack Lunch Box

The Prepd Pack Lunch Box is quite possibly the most stylish lunch box I’ve ever seen! Mike spotted it online and less than 10 minutes later, we had placed our order for The Couple’s Pack via their Indiegogo website.
Considering we bring a packed lunch to work everyday, I am surprised we haven’t opted for some sort of lunchbox sooner. The Prepd Pack will definitely be much more stylish than our current plastic shopping bag option! haha πŸ˜‰ There are so many different options and configurations available and I can’t wait for production to begin!

The Secret History of Twin Peaks

Be still my heart!!! β™₯ β™₯ β™₯ The Secret History of Twin Peaks – A novel by Mark Frost is coming out October 18th and has moved right up to the top of my wish list! I’m pretty sure I could write an entire post (or two!) on my love of Twin peaks – I mean, we even went to North Bend and Snoqualmie on our honeymoon (and stayed perched above Snoqualmie Falls aka The Great Northern! β™₯) Pretty sure the last time I was this excited was when I first heard that Twin Peaks was coming back! eeeee β™₯ Best news EVER!

I’ve got my best friend and her family coming to visit this weekend – it’s her first time in Melbourne (ever!) and I’m oh so excited! Fingers crossed for some sunny skies and warmer weather – please Melbourne!
Now let the birthday celebrations begin! πŸ˜‰

Happy August friends! One more month of Winter to go!

Teeny tiny housesΒ 

I’ve been tiny house lovin’ for a while now, but lately it’s all I seem to think of! With that in mind, I thought I’d share a few of my favourite tiny homesΒ that i wouldn’t mind moving into πŸ˜‰

Vista Tiny Homes

This image still steals my heart!β™₯ large open windows surrounded by driving snow is my absolute dreamland,even if Melbournes climate will never deliver the white fluffy stuff for me!

Priced from $46000 (US), the Vista Tiny House just looks so open and spacious, and those windows just make my heart sing! I also love the bed not being in a loft for a change, and i’d totally upgrade to the XL version for a bigger bathroom (hello washer/dryer!)

Mint Tiny Homes

This custom design from Mint Tiny Homes has me wanting to sell off my possessions and sign up now! Not only does it feature a spacious loft bed, but there’s a separate back room/studio, another smaller loft space and a gorgeous porch too!

And these floating stairs?!!

Tiny homes like this one make me realise that I seriously could turn my pipe dream into a reality. I’m already imagining a wall of hanging planter boxes filled with herbs on the porch…not to mention the incredible car we would need to buy to tow this! Haha That alone would make Mikes car dreams come true (though I have a feeling the car might cost more than the home lol)


I just spotted the Kasita this week and I love the look and design of it. As their website states “a modern, minimal way of living” and it truly is. Actually, I think I love the CEO Jeff Wilson (aka @profdumpster) even more! From living in a dumpster for a year to travelling with no baggage, he really puts himself out there. I can’t wait to her more about this project – they begin rolling out of Austin late 2016, so I’ll be keeping tabs on this!

New Frontier Tiny Homes

I’m absolutely fascinated by the Alpha by New Frontier Tiny Homes. Mike spotted it today (while I was typing this post up) so I just had to include it! It’s going to be featured on HGTV’s Tiny House, Big Living next monday (11th July) and i can’t wait to see more of it! That custom fold down deck is just way too fun!

The Vanual

I couldn’t leave out this incredible van makeover by Zach Both, even though the lack of a Β bathroom would be too much for me (at least Β as a permanent home. I could totally do a road trip around the USA though!) The design is so beautiful and well thought out – perfect for a nomadic life!

I seriously have all the heart eyes for the tiny house and van life movement. There really is so much in life that is uneccessary – so many things that don’t add real value to our lives. Breaking it down, finding out what really matters to you is key and I have so much admiration for the people living it and turning their dreams into reality.

Who knows – maybe tiny house living isn’t that far off in the future for me either…
