While I proudly declare myself a city sleeker born and bred through and through, sometimes a girl just needs a little time away, time to unwind, smell the roses and get in touch with Mother Nature…
So on a chilly morning the Sunday past, Mister J. and I decided to take a last minute drive to the Dandenong ranges for some lunch. Comfy jersey maxi? Check! Fine knit jumper? Check! A super fluffy vest to brave the cold? Check! A wild scramble for a few winter essentials and we were off!
An hour out of town lay the Piggery, an old pig farm converted into a rustic cafe. I love this place on a cold day. Sipping on my chai latte, spooning rich, gooey mouthfuls of dark chocolate tart and other treats in the warmth whilst peering out onto sprawling lawn, the dewy grass sparkling as it catches the sunlight.
An attempt to alleviate the guilt of a gluttonous lunch calls for a light stroll in the gardens, despite the bitter cold. It was at this point that I regretted throwing on this cut-out knit, I was literally spotting cold shoulders! But hey, all in the name of fashion am I right?

It’s been almost two months since I started this blog and boy, has time flown! I was scheduling an appointment in just the other day and it struck me, we’re in March already?
First and foremost I wanted to thank you all for your support, and putting up with any potential technical issues caused by myself from changing my theme 100 times over! But I also wanted to give a shout out to my amazing boyfriend who has obligingly taken all my photos, regardless of my dictatorship like approach to giving directions.
The last two months have been lots of fun and reignited my love for writing, which between all the bits and bobs of life, I haven’t done much of in years. I’ve also found blogging to be quite therapeutic, at the end of a busy day it’s nice to be able cozy up in bed, put your thoughts on a page and ‘zone out’ into the little part of cyber space I’d like to make my own.
I always love to hear feedback and comments, so keep in touch! Thanks again for all the likes, follows and for being a part of one of my new years resolutions for 2015 (tick!).
