Welcome weavers! ILY big time. As the temperature starts to descend, my inspiration to write and share seems to ascend. I think it’s something about the cardigans and cups of tea that Autumn brings. Standing in your cardigan/ Kissing in my car again/ Stopped at a streetlight/ You know I miss you (Taylor Swift “Betty”).AsContinue reading “Marvellous March”
“You gotta rise above it. You gotta harness in the good energy, block out the bad. Harness. Energy. Block. Bad”.
I’m baaackk! Have missed you guyZ and bloggY. Since I’ve been gone-bloggY turned 4 and Melbournians turned 164 due to Stage 4 restrictions. I’ve decided to post whenever/wherever I’m inspired to so do (sign up to email list below for a heads up). The survey results (link to take it below if you’re yet to) showed a pretty even split between the topics you enjoy reading on WFM; Money, Sobriety/ Health, Recommendations (books, movies etc), Self-help stuff (law of attraction, mindfulness). So, I thought I’d give you a little of each to kick off the comeback.

I’m looking forward to being more mindful with my spending, basing my purchases on needs rather than wants, embracing minimalism and simplicity and strengthening my will power. Some things are in my no-buy category (clothes, books and homewares), some thingsContinue reading “2020 We have plenty”
There is no shortage of inspirational quotes in our world; avalanches of them online, on fridge magnets and in books. Occasionally I stumble across one that gives me a moment of illumination, some comfort or a reframe of hope in this crazy old world in which we live… “Don’t focus on your competition, focus onContinue reading “Words to live by”
You need to just stop
Like can you just not step on my gown?
You need to calm down
We waste so much time lamenting things we wish we didn’t do or say or wear or buy. This is unhelpful and floods your body with negative ninny neurones (it’s science). When I was giving up the booze, I felt attacked by my thoughts and hazy memories of shame and blame. Idiot! Why? Why me?Continue reading “No shame and no blame”
It’s been over a year since I summoned up the courage to ‘put myself out there’ by online dating. Please, no medal for bravery required, but I do appreciate the sentiment. It did involve the challenges of leaving the house, trying to look nice and talking to strangers. Here’s what I learned from 13 firstContinue reading “Vetty vs. dating”
