Another magical escape from the city, we drove to Byron last night in my friends amazing camper van called Mathilda, we arrived and set up camp in a random tourist park. The purpose of our Friday night adventure was to see Kooii play . I have rattled on before about this beautiful band from Brisbane before, We felt like true groupies. The night was so good, lots of dancing and beers in the freezing garden. The night ended being driven home on a rickshaw, so much fun.
Breakfast right of out the camper this morning by the beach... Perfect weekend....

I'm getting itchy feet, only 5 weeks till I get to go home. Its been nearly 2 years since i have been back and I just know it will be different, people grow and change, places smell different, your favorite coffee shop moves.
I lived with heat and beaches, new adventures, opening my heart to new people, made a home, bought a cat, painted my house, but it's been too long , I have finally let myself think about home and what i really need from it upon my return.
I'm ready to get a cuddle from my mum, to eat my Nan's Welsh cakes, to walk to Hilbre Island, drink tea at The Sweet Pea, play Back Gammon in my dad's kitchen, play with my Nephew, welcome my little Niece into the world, drink wine with the girls, walk the streets of Brick Lane, Hit Topshop-( Oh how I miss the), dance on my beach and gather round the fire, Listen to Allan sing those beautiful songs, Read my book on the Promenade, Walk in the woods, and most importantly just be with my loved ones, as time travels to fast .
So I will keep adding to wish list for home adventures, and with those memories I will keep them wrapped up tight in a jar until the next time..

My friend is getting married in September, her ideas and inspirations for the big day is rustic, vintage with a touch of Bo ho.. Imagine, a big beautiful tree covered in jars with fairy lights, hand picked flowers in jam jars rapped in lace and all things hand crafted and beautiful.
I put together a mood board of all her favorite things and ideas, Its gonna be a special day that's for sure...

I love Saturday's, a quick ride along the river on Ida Flower and then a morning of hustle and bustle at the West End markets. Its Bohemian, free loving, and the perfect place to unwind with friends. The veg is fresh and yummy, the European food stalls and beautiful handmade clothing labels are to die for.
Live music is truly magical and I always walk away with a little vintage treat from my friends vintage stall.
So happy days are always even happier when im pottering among the masses, winding in and out of the flow of travelers, locals and hippies.
So come all, come one , Saturdays are made with days like these...
