About a week ago I had the absolute privilege of meeting Cassie, the #girlboss behind Inspirationery, an eco-friendly stationery label that donates 50% of profits to empowering women and girls through education and leadership programs. Aaaand I also had the absolute absolute privilege of photographing Inspirationery's brand new collection!

I'm so glad I came across Cassie's post in a Facebook group looking for a photographer, because I absolutely love what Inspirationery is all about: empowering all women. I am all about #girlpower, I am all about empowering young women and helping them discover their worth and find their purpose in life. It really was quite special.

This is completely unplanned, but as I am writing up this blog post, I am also in the middle of looking up the statistics of bullying and suicide rates in Australia (for work, not just for fun). And it's put me in a bit of a poo-ey mood. But it's people like Cassie that gives me a little more hope in humanity, that reminds me that there are good ones out there that actually care. Anywaaaay...

I hope you enjoy the photos and show your support! You can shop the collection here!


Went for a casual photo walk round good ol Fremantle on the weekend with Ocean and Effy. I don't think I will ever get bored of Fremantle. There are always new art installations going up, new buildings and new shops. It is also generally an extremely photogenic area, you just have to keep an eye out for all the hidden gems!

Little Effy is such a model. She looks absolutely incredible and posed so naturally every time. I had a really fun afternoon snapping away without any pressure of deadline or briefs to fulfil. Ha!

Yeaaaa, these really cannot get any more hipster. Ha! Fremantle makes everything hipster. ;)


I had the absolute privilege to capture a few sweet moments shared between Jess and her fiancé Jay on the weekend. Jess contacted me via Facebook about 6 months ago and we've been trying to organise this photoshoot since. We got here in the end. Ha! It was the perfect day down at Coogee Beach. 16 degrees, clear blue skies, light sea breeze, and the Sun slowly setting in the background. It was pretty much the complete opposite of what the weather forecast predicted just two days prior! I had a short half hour to snap away and this is a selection of what I've got. Enjoy!

To Jess + Jay, thank you for being so great to work with! Xx

On the last day of the trip, I broke off from the group and caught up with an old friend from Singapore. We've known each other since high school but we've never hung out. It was so great catching up in Sydney and reminiscing our high school days, chatting about life Down Under - I had a good ol' time. I've been dying to share these photos because of how much I loved exploring The Grounds and Newtown. It was probably my favourite day out and about in Sydney! It also felt really great exploring with a local and not having to rely on Google maps every step of the way. Ha!

1. The Grounds of Alexandria

This place is actual heaven on Earth. I love it so much!!! There are florals in every corner, piping hot donuts, fresh fruits, freshly baked bread, amazing desserts and just very aesthetically pleasing everything everywhere. If you're a Perth-ian, The Grounds is kinda like a mixture of The Mantle and Bread in Common, but with a lot more flowers and a lot cooler. I actually can't find the appropriate words to describe just how great this place is. It was a Saturday morning when I visited which really added to the atmosphere. I could wander round this place all day and not get bored! I would love to come back someday and experience The Grounds in the evening, wine and dine under the festoon lights.

2. Black Star Pastry (Newtown)

Ah, the famous Strawberry Watermelon Cake! Maybe I've been living under a rock, I didn't even know this was a thing until I was in Sydney. I was a little bit skeptical of the combination of watermelon and cake at first, but I was pleasantly surprised after my first mouthful. It was light and fluffy and delicious. Definitely worth a trip down to Blackstar! The lemon/pistachio flavoured cake was pretty great too. To my fellow Perthies, Black Star Pastry (PLUS N2 Gelato) is available at the Night Noodles Market in Elizabeth Quay (30 March - 10 April)!

3. Brewtown Newtown

The last stop of the day was Brewtown. It was pretty damn packed but we managed to get seats for 2 right away. We stopped in here for a break from shopping, but most importantly to grab a delicious cronut (croissant x donut). Hit the spot. There is also a cool little shop upstairs that stocks some really great stuff that I cannot afford. Ha!

And that concludes my Sydney travel diaries. It's been really fun getting to visit Singapore then Sydney one after the other. Looking forward to spending some time at home and make some dreams happen. See you soon! Xxxx
