I have, at last, moved into my own place. Woooooo.
I have moved 30 times in 28 years, and after much turmoil, have landed in my own home. That might sound a tad dramatic, I'm sure most twenty-somethings have roamed until they found a place to settle a while, and whilst there will always be a little bit of a gypsy wanderer inside me - I must admit that having your own little place in the world to call your own is a very wonderful thing.
Slowly unpacking boxes when I have the time outside of work, I stumbled across a box with this enormous scrapbook inside from 2009.
For me, 2008 is the year I wish had never happened, and when New Years came, I started making an enormous inspiration scrapbook to encourage a better year ahead.
This book is utterly bulging with pages of scribbles, magazine and newspaper cutouts (I'm a severe mag hoarder) of personal style, decor, yummy food, animals, nature, photography and art.
It was a pleasure to flick through the images that filled me with hope - and I feel blessed that I now live a life absolutely filled with images like this - for real!
Managing an Alice in Wonderland vintage boutique by the coast, owning an online shop, working as a freelance stylist and getting to be creative every, single day - goes to show that pictures in a scrapbook can become reality if you believe it, and work for it.
Okay, Disney moment over with.
