Having your own space and the money (sometimes a whole dollar to your name!) to decorate is possibly one of the best reasons being a grown-up is awesome. When you’re an adult with your own space, money and a big fan of something, you have plenty of design ideas to show your love to your favourite sports team, show or movie. A lot of the time, though, you’re living with someone else or just want to have a more grown up look.
Despite there are loads upon loads of examples for kid’s rooms, it isn’t impossible to put together a grown-up area.
To help you along, I’ve come up with some handy hints to help you get started!
“I hate clothes.” I mutter to myself as I go through my shirts yet again. I’m constantly trying to weed out my clothes and other belongings, longing to be minimalist while at the same time collecting my Funko Pop bounty.
You might not be like me in any way. I have never kept an eye on trends; had loads upon loads of clothes and accessories, neither have I ever really been into clothes shopping. Yet between moving (which I will be doing yet again in the coming months), a fluctuating weight and having my audition/acting clothes on standby, you might be like me in that you have more clothes than you usually know what to do with. I don’t really have many bottoms or dresses, but I sure to have a mound of tops. When I go away I usually come back with a top, when I’m at a convention I might grab a top, when my overseas friends or my family go overseas, I get a few more tops again.
To top this problem (pun maybe intended), I know that not just my shirts but all of my clothes are made in different countries, from different material blends and in really haphazard ways (the shirt I’m wearing right now is asymmetrical and not intended to be, but what did I expect for $3?).
One night as I was scanning Pinterest for minimising ideas, I happened to come across this book by Elizabeth L. Cline. Overdressed had a lot of articles written about it, as well as raved reviews, so while I was at the library I rented it out. What I had learned (and trust me, if you thought you knew it all, you will still learn something) has changed how I feel about the clothes I have and how I shop for them.
Ahhh yes, winter has now settled in around here and my skin knows it. Grumpy, itchy, dry skin that begged for exfoliation even after exfoliating. Remembering that I have some products stashed away, I decided to have a peek to see if I have anything to help my skin and wouldn’t you know it, I happened across this five-day treatment by Dr Dennis Gross that I bought when I was in Canada and totally forgot about. It was like my skin spirit animal was singing to me.
I decided to document my progress over the days and see if I can revive my very grumpy skin.
We’re back! I hope you haven’t missed us too much (if you’re on Twitter, you might be sick of us and our Eurovision live-tweeting). We were going to update and move the site to its first .com site, however we’re holding off on that until later in the year.
While we’ve been away though, we’ve had time to try out oil pulling ‘toothpaste’ by Keeko!
Hey, everyone! I hope this week is treating you all well.
We just wanted to let you all know we’re just taking a few days to revamp the site, do some changes to make it a bit cleaner and spiffy while we continue working on some posts for you. So come back next week, we’ll keep the drinks cold

There’s a lot I want to do in my life. I’m not just a grumpy, ranting cynic, I also have things I would really love to accomplish, a bucket list (nice tie-in, right?). Own a Vivienne Westwood piece? On the list. Go to an awards ceremony? Yup. Swim with the sharks? Love them! I even have a Pinterest board of the things I’d like to do!
On the flipside though, I have things I never, ever want to do. Most stuff I will say isn’t on my bucket list, but if the opportunity arises, I might give it a shot. However, there’s stuff you hear about and just nope about. You might have heard people call a list of these “nopes” their Anti-Bucket List.
I was telling a friend of mine I’m going to do this post and she was really confused. “Why the hell are you doing an anti-bucket list of stuff you never want to do? It’s really counterproductive, isn’t it?” You might be thinking that too and, honestly, I was initially going to do it as a nice, ‘get to know me’ filler while I write other posts. Yet once I started, I realised that I’m actually more open to experiences than most people thought I was, including myself.
So, I’ll show you mine, then you show me yours…
