Stocktake and Sunrise


I’m a fan, a pretty big one, of creative Melbourne blogger, Pip Lincolne from Meet Me At Mikes. A blogger from way back, this chick has released books filled with exciting cakes, craft, granny square how tos and positivity plus commentary on life in general.

I think she’s awesome.

Miss Pip has inspired me to do a little stocktake of life, in general. This stocktake was loads of fun to do and made me realise that even though it’s fucking hard to wake up daily at 5.15am with a dinosaur stabbed into your eyelid, it’s totally worth it to see some cracking sunrises that have been sneaking into our sky.

Go on, try it. Take stock and see what you come up with. 
*notice I didn’t mention jeggings once.
