Re-inventing yourself isn't about hating where you are. It's about respecting where you're going. Join me as I find inspiration and new perspective in a return to my favourite custom design hotel in Sydney, The Collectionist.
In the past 12 months, my perception of success has changed significantly. Until now, it's made me question whether I've given up early or lost motivation for the "larger" goals in life. What I've come to realise is that what I once thought was so large, may not be so significant to me.. at all. It's time to stop pretending; it's time to redefine success.
In 2018, I made the realisation that self-care or slowing down in the form of watching TV or lying on the couch simply doesn't work for me.

To reflect on 6 months in Melbourne seemed too predictable [so a 7-month recap it is]. Okay, so I actually lost track of time -- but it was for good reason. I was busy learning these lessons.
As a full-time freelancing digital media marketing manager + lifestyle blogger, it's safe to say that I've managed to avoid the 9-to-5. That is, until now. In the last two weeks, I've experimented with the most notorious "hustle" of all: introducing my pros and cons of the 9-to-5 grind.
At a time like this — on my way back to NZ for Fashion Week — I find myself particularly proud to be the person I am. Not because I’ll probably wear some cool clothes and take some cool photos and speak to some cool people. But because I’ve welcomed this scale of adventure into my life again.
CURRENTLY LOVING has officially re-launched! This time, we're skipping the small talk and going straight to the gritty stuff. We're meeting with the elephant in the room: she wants to talk about your niche.
