TEN THINGS

January has been an interesting month. It's been a tough one but a few things have gotten me through it. Here are some of those things....


  1. My new favourite youtube channel is Plant Based Traveler. They post videos on film photography, meditation, and so much more. The quality and the editing is phenomenal - please check them out as they deserve so many more views than they get.
  2. Castle On The Hill | Ed Sheeran
  3. It was the 15th anniversary of A Walk To Remember! That seems insane to me... I was 10 when it came out! This movie means so much to me and it is one I think everyone should watch.
  4. Hi, I'm a virgin | Slam poem (Savannah Brown response)
  5. No Pressure | Elevation Youth
  6. SKAM. This Norwegian series is so incredibly brilliant. It's similar to the show Skins but is made for today's high schoolers. High school was 8(!!!) years ago for me now but the themes of high school will never change - love, friendship, drama.... it's always the same. The great thing about Skam is how they incorporate social media into the show. One of the great things about it is that the 'episodes' are posted in real time - for example, if a scene happens on Friday night, they post it on Friday night. Each episode varies in length and each season focuses on a different character. It's truly wonderful and I highly recommend watching it on a weekend where you have no plans because you are going to want to binge watch it (I watched it in 3 days - it only took that long because of work!). If you want to get it with English subtitles you can find it with a very simple google search
  7. Someday | Passenger
  8. FAT // A SLAM POEM + YOU'RE NOT FAT... YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL by partylikemaddie 
  9. The Sketchbook Soul by KickThePj
  10. Kodak are releasing a new Super 8 camera and I am so excited about it! I'm a bit late to the party but I can't wait to give it a go. I'm thinking that I will buy an old Super 8 camera instead of their new one (which isn't going to retail at over $700) but buy their film. The only thing that has put me off shooting Super 8 is how expensive it is to get it developed, but Kodak are now building the price of developing and scanning your footage into the price of the film when you purchase it which is amazing. I'm hoping that this will truly be a resurgence of film and lead to many more exciting things!

2017 Goals

Happy New Year everyone! Almost all of us set goals or new years resolutions when the calendar year begins. I am no different. Here's my list for two thousand and seventeen...

December | One Second Every Day

Another year over. It's kind of crazy to say that. I've been filming my everyday life for 11 months (I started in February) and it's weird to see life just go by in seconds. Some days feel long, other days I struggle to catch my breath. Am I happier than I was this time last year? I think so. I think that's the mark of a successful year, isn't it? To be happier at the end than you were 365 days ago.

I've loved this project and am going to continue doing it next year, however I'm not going to post the video until the end of 2017. I have a lot of goals and a lot of things planned and I really hope that is reflected in my video at the end of next year.

November | One Second Every Day

November was about slowing down, taking it easy, and visiting a lot of natural and healing places. I went on holiday, visited Crystal Castle for the second time, and spent a lot of time with friends.

TEN THINGS

This will probably be the last Ten Things of 2016! I have a busy month ahead of me but I'm glad to be nearing the end of 2016. I think we can all agree that this year has been terrible worldwide - so many murders, violence and negative things have happened and I'm hoping we can leave it behind and move into next year choosing to live out of love rather than succumb to the fear that has paralysed us this year.


  1. The new Hay House oracle deck Keepers of the Light has exploded in the spiritual community. I'm still waiting for my deck to arrive so I can wrap it up for Christmas!
  2. Hannah Witton's new series The Hormone Diaries is completely unique and inspiring. 
  3. "Maybe I'm Amazed" live in Oslo, Norway (Paul McCartney Cover) | Gavin DeGraw
  4. Do You Need A Hug?
  5. GILMORE GIRLS IS BACK!!!!! Honestly I had some mixed thoughts on the revival - what did you think?
  6. Fujifilm finally released monochrome film for their Instax cameras! Unfortunately it has not been released for Instax Wide cameras yet, but I'm hoping it won't be too much longer.
  7. DIY | Magical Fairy Garden
  8. Light Is The New Black by Rebecca Campbell has been one of those books that I pick up and read a few pages of every other day. The writing style is completely up my street and I relate to a lot of Rebecca's story. 
  9. Perfectly Perfect by Simple Plan.
  10. Dodie's 'Intertwined' EP has been my favourite release this month.

October | One Second Every Day

October was one of the best months I've had in a while. In all honesty this year hasn't been the best - I think overall the world has been feeling quite a heavy energy - there's been a lot of loss and tragedy this year, and we of course are all affected by what's happening in the USA election.

I had some really great moments this month but it's been clouded by the self doubt and negativity I've been feeling towards myself and others. I'm going on holiday next week for a few days and it could not have come at a better time. I am really looking forward to it as I need a break from everything. It will be good to relax with a friend and not be surrounded by family or work people for a change.



I feel like I've been slacking with this blog which has been getting me down. Lack of time has been to blame, but honestly it's the fact that I haven't been living, and therefore I haven't got anything to write about or take pictures of. I'm really hoping this changes in 2017.

September | One Second Every Day

As I mentioned in my latest Ten Things post, things have been shifting in my mind lately and I think that's why September was a bit of a drag in regards to this project. I went a lot of days without filming anything and had to make it up later, and I generally just felt really uninspired. I usually go through this whenever things are clearing in my life and making way for the new, so I am excited to see what lies ahead in the next three months

TEN THINGS

I've been gone quite a while from this blog and in that time a lot has happened. I've been working on my mental state and getting myself ready to overcome fears and to create the life I wish I had, instead of waiting for fate to do the work for me.

I'm working on saving enough money to get myself a car and also go on a trip to Europe with my friend next year. I really want to do this European Quest Contiki tour as it covers all the places we both want to go and you get two nights in each major city.


There might be a bit of a shake up on this blog in the next few weeks. I'm really wanting to start talking about really personal things and taboo topics as that is where my interests lie at the moment and where my mind is at. I've always gotten a great response on this blog when I share personal things and hope that it goes down just as well this time.

Here's Ten Things....

TEN THINGS

It's been so long since I last posted "Ten Things". Truthfully I've been pretty busy with work, something I definitely was not earlier this year. I have two jobs at the moment so when I'm not at my day job I'm working from home. I really like both of my jobs but I find myself questioning everything else in my life. I suppose we all go through that stage, especially in our twenties.

Father's Day | A Celebration

Today is Father's Day in Australia which has always been a difficult day for me due to the fact he passed away 16 years ago when I was 8 years old. Last year I remember talking to him and saying how I miss his voice and had no idea what he sounded like anymore as any memory of his voice had faded over the years. A few months ago I discovered some VHS tapes of home movies that I have been looking for and got them transferred to digital format.

I finally got to see and hear him again which was an absolute blessing - I never thought that would be possible again. The footage below was taken on my 3rd birthday at my McDonald's birthday party.

August | One Second Every Day

August started off calmly and ended with my most feared planetary movement - Mercury retrograde (DUN DUN DUUUUN). The last 2 days of August really kicked my butt and brought out a lot of emotions and frustrations in me, but for the most part August was a pretty good month.


I'm really happy about getting into the warmer months now - the winter weather has been non-existent over the last month but for some reason the winter blues dragged on longer than I anticipated. Spring brings fresh starts which is what I desperately need.

Top 10 Things I'm Scared Of

The real world scares me. My head is a utopia; it's all rainbows and butterflies and equality and love. Everything works out there the way you want it to. Everyone gets to pursue passions and interests and help out people. We have time for things that make us happy and the concept of money is non-existent. There's nothing to be scared of there.


But here, on Earth, there is a lot to be scared of. The world is unpredictable - people do stupid things that hurt others without thinking of the consequences and the way society is structured hurts everyone. Either you're judged and treated like a lesser person because of futile things such as your skin colour, sexuality, gender, age and appearance. Or you fit in for the most part, but have to do things you don't enjoy.

July | One Second Every Day

Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful July and are looking forward to August. This year is going way too fast but I am looking forward to the end of winter (not that we have experienced much cold weather).


Something major that happened this month for me was that I started making a book! I have been wanting to make something along the lines of The Erin Chronicles for awhile where I have a series of hardcover books from certain periods in my life. It's going to be words, photos and memories for me to have and to look back on in 50 years which I am really excited about. I'm going to be printing them with Blurb and the first one I have been working on is the ages of 20 - 24. I'm turning 25 in January so I'm hoping to have it finished by at least two weeks before my birthday so I hopefully receive it around my 25th birthday. It's already 200 pages which blows my mind. I'm aiming for 300-350 pages.

June | One Second Every Day

This month I have been working my ass off. I'm looking forward to a large sum of money coming my way for the first time in months. I have two jobs at the moment so when I'm not at my new job (I'm there 4 days at the moment - they want me 5 though) I am working from home for my other one. It's been difficult but good - it feels good to have purpose again and to feel like I have stuff to do. Whenever I've had a day off in June I've not known what to do with myself which is quite a change from the rest of the year so far.

May | One Second Every Day

May brought about a lot of changes in my life, for which I am very grateful. As you may have noticed from my last few videos, life has been very stagnant for me so far this year as I have not had a full-time job. I'm happy to say that I am now working! My schedule is flexible so I can work as much or as little as needed, which is perfect for both me & the company. Something I struggled with in my previous job was working 9-5 every day of the week - I found it incredibly draining. Even during high school my hours were 8:30-3:10 and I would not go most Thursdays as by then I really needed a break (being an introvert is tough!). I think this job will be good for me and I'm glad I took a chance.

TEN THINGS

Hello all! Can you believe I'm back? I had an impromptu hiatus that I definitely wasn't planning, but after three months of posting every second day I think I genuinely just ran out of blog post ideas. My next post will be explaining everything that's been going on, but for now I wanted to share Ten Things I've been loving recently...

April | One Second Every Day

This month was filled with family and babies! It's kind of funny to have a month like this as it's so rare, but I absolutely love it. I often talk about how I can't wait for the baby, wedding & family stage of life so it was nice to get a slice of it.

Lest We Forget

Anzac Day is always an emotional one for Australia and New Zealand. It's the day that we remember the soldiers that went into battle and lost their lives. Many of us have family members that either fought in the war, or struggled through that difficult time in history. My grandfather (on my mum's side) was meant to fight in World War 2 but then got a minor knee injury which meant he wasn't strong enough for battle anymore. I am so thankful that he never had to fight in the War and that I was able to know him, as my other grandfather passed away shortly after returning from War when my dad was 8 years old.

Unfortunately we didn't go down to the Dawn service this year, but instead on Friday night my mum and I went down to Elephant Rock at Currumbin to check out the beautiful lighted up poppy's they had laid over the rock in memory of the soldiers that fought and lost their lives.

TEN THINGS

After taking a little impromptu two week break from blogging, I wanted to come back and share the things I've been loving whilst I've been gone.


  1. Maybe I’m Not "Fuckable"... That’s Fine, I’m Not For You to Fuck: Diane Goldie. This video affected me in ways that I can't even describe yet. I love all the videos on that channel but this one meant more.
  2. Bring It All Back - S Club 7 cover || Dodie Clark and Sarah Close
  3. CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: Episode 2 with Zoella. I watch all of Zoe's videos and it was really interesting to hear her perspective on her job and everything surrounding it. I wouldn't say I learned anything from listening but I think a lot of people might. 
  4. Hollywood Medium. I am loving this show - I've been watching a lot of psychics and mediums on YouTube over the last year and seeing celebrities get readings is so interesting and adds another layer to mediumship. 
  5. Lizzie McGuire. I've loved this show since I lived in Sydney back in 2001 and when I bought the DVDs off eBay a couple of years ago it made me appreciate it even more. It has everything you could want in a show aimed at young people - young women in particular. Life lessons, feminist attitudes (girls can do anything boys can do), a variety of cultures in the main trio of the show (Lizzie is the "All American Girl Next Door", Gordo is Jewish and Miranda is Hispanic) and a variety of cultures are celebrated and appreciated. I honestly couldn't recommend this show more, especially to a young tween-teen audience. 
  6. To my peers who make videos, from your peer who writes articles.
  7. I wanna give a shout out to a vlogging channel that doesn't get nearly enough attention for their little cup of happy, and that is Bits and Clips. Marie has gone through a lot and has what seems like many things working against her, but she has so much love in her life and so much strength which really inspires me. Her children are the most beautiful, well-raised kids I've ever seen and they are naturally full of love - they really are two little crystal children.
  8. The Psychic Twins With Co-Host Jessie Buttafuoco - Shane And Friends - Ep. 45. As anyone who knows me knows, I am really into spirituality and psychics so I found this really interesting. I watch some of Shane's videos (mostly the spiritual ones) and had never listened to his podcast before, and I had no idea just how many experiences he has had with the paranormal. It's a really interesting listen if you're into that kind of stuff, like I am.
  9. Every #1 Hit Song in Just 4 Chords
  10. There’s A Wild Conspiracy Theory That Louis Tomlinson’s Baby Is Fake. I don't even want to say anything about this except that #larryisreal.  

Hope you've all been well... ♥
