What a crazy week it’s been!  In fact, when I arrived at work yesterday and realised it was the 1st of July, I almost fell of my chair!  I keep asking myself, where did June go?

The end of financial year is always a busy time at my workplace, coupled with several other changes happening including my workplace moving locations next week.  As an Executive Assistant, I’m one of the “Change Champions” which pretty much means getting everyone excited and organised about relocating office.  With the Big Move Day only a week away, so I’m really looking forward to getting settled into a new workplace.

Here’s a handful of things I’ve also been loving this past week!

QUOTED | “When a defining moment comes along, you can do one of two things. Define the moment, or let the moment define you.” – Unknown

SHOP | a few months ago, I mentioned I was on the hunt for a beautiful winter coat.  Well, I found the One.  It’s definitely not the style that I’d usually pick but after some encouragement from lovely ladies at Cue, (and trying it on multiple times!) I caved!  It was the last one they had in stock in a beautiful, rich caramel colour. I always choose black when buying my winter coats, but this time I went for a different colour, that’s still a neutral and I absolutely love it!  I’ve received so many compliments (even from stranger’s walking down the street!) when wearing it out.  No doubt, you’ll see it regularly appearing in upcoming blog posts!

READ | I’ve read Shannon’s blog, The Simply Luxurious Life for many years now.  She has a beautiful ability to write such beautiful, inspiring posts.  I recently read, Why Not…Embrace Mini Summer Resolutions and whilst its definitely not summer here in Melbourne, I can certainly embrace some winter resolutions.  Have a read, over here and be inspired!

HOME | whilst owning and decorating my own home is many years away, one can always dream and begin in small places (such as my one-bedroom apartment!).  I’m absolutely loving this look which I re-pinned on Tumblr (if you don’t follow me already, you should!).  I love neutral coloured walls, contrasted by the dark wooden floors and the mixed-matched photo wall behind the desk.

WANDERLUST | I must follow a lot of Canadian bloggers, because everywhere I’ve been seeing Happy Canada Day popping up on my feeds (including, Tim Hortons Snapchat filter) and it led to me searching for Canadian images on Pinterest and #ohmygoodness! I cannot believe how beautiful the country is!  Perhaps, I need to tack this destination onto my travel bucket list?

Hope y’all have an wonderful week ahead! xx
