Kinfolk Freshen Up Workshop

A few weeks ago I had the proud moment of hosting my first Blog Society event with Kinfolk Magazine – a dream come true and certainly one to tick off the life list. It was a workshop long in the making but the end result was all worth it.The theme was ‘Freshen Up’ and we spent the afternoon making lavender hand scrub, peppermint home spray, lavender sachets as well as enjoying delicious food from Mario’s Kitchen and getting to meet some wonderful people. I was too busy to snap as many photos as I’d like but if you want to check out the real deal – head on over to The Loved Ones site to see the amazing work of photographer, Matt Johnson.

In order to make this event happen I was lucky enough to team up with some incredible people including my talented co-host and kindred spirit, Natalie Hayllar from Eat Read Love and the lovely Madeline Johnson who styled the hell out of our venue!  I also want to thank the following partners for making the day such a dream:

CATERING: Marios Kitchen
STYLING: Madeline Johnson (THE LOVED ONES)

wide open spaces


Judging by my absence and lack of recent posts this seems to be a concept I’m struggling with. Life has been busy – good busy, great in fact but it has left little time to breath never mind blog but happy to report I’m back, with a renewed focus and desire to reconnect and write with wild abandon. I’ve missed blogging, more than I thought I would. I’ve missed connecting with blogs that have become a daily reading habit, I’ve missed writing about moments and milestones that when not captured soon fade into distant memories.

The past few weeks have been filled with highs and lows.  From mourning the loss of my grandfather to watching Jimmy’s band launch their first album to seeing Blog Society flourish and evolve – these are the events that have filled our days and I’ve missed sharing them here.  Strangely enough I’ve found that by stepping back I’ve come to appreciate the outlet that Little Paper Trees has become for me, a place of my own to write, ramble, share and vent. As I’ve rushed through the past few weeks on a sleepless adrenaline high, I’ve barely picked up my camera or could muster the energy to write a post but I’m glad to see that things are turning around and you can expect me back here posting (somewhat) regularly.

These photos are from a spur of the moment trip up to the Blue Mountains a few weeks ago when both of us were longing for an escape from the city, wide open spaces and fresh mountain air.
