A Playlist To Thank Spontaneity

Hello hello friends!

Today’s post is one of my favourites. This whole post is created around one specific day I spent out in the city with one of my favourite people in the world, Mia.

Last week Mia and I were in the city, and on a bit of a whim, decided to do something so spontaneous, I was a bit of a nervous wreck. Want to find out what we did? Whelp, guess you got to head over to Mia’s post to find out.

All I’ll tell you was that it was, spontaneous as heck.

So to celebrate the spontaneity that created a great little bonding moment for Mia and I, something we can look back on together in the future, I thought I’d create a playlist to thank that moment of spontaneous living.

A Playlist Dedication // Summer 18/19

Hey friends. How are we?

Summer has officially come to an end here in Australia, but due to the warming of the globe, unpredictable weather, unreliable weather reports/apps and general nature of the way it all is here, the sun has been kicking it up into the next gear, meaning these last few weeks have been spectacular.

We had an incredibly rainy and wet end to 2018, but luckily 2019 showed it’s face with plenty of sunshine and great weather, which has in turn made me that much more optimistic towards this year and what it has to offer. The last three months have been fantastic weather-wise, which means I’ve actually been leaving my house. Yeah.

Also, this has been my first summer with a driver’s license that allows me to drive by myself, meaning I’ve found myself heading to my friends house, planning days out, going away and driving myself to the beach a heap more. It’s been fantastic. I don’t even regret the petrol it all costs, because it’s been without a doubt, worth it.

So with that said, I thought I’d do the first of what I’m hoping to be quite a few posts, a playlist dedication. I mean, my Rye//2019 playlist was the post that sparked the idea because I shared a playlist that I felt belonged to the trip and the getaway with some of my friends, so this is a playlist for this summer. I feel like I might even extend this post to people and places, rather than just times and experiences. Tell me what you think of the idea in the comments below.

A Playlist To Get Nostalgic To

Hello friends.

If you’ve been here for more than a couple of weeks, then you may have picked up along the way that back in April my family and I moved houses. I recently read a post, (linked) written by one of my favourite YouTubers, Margot Lee, about her ‘happy place‘. It was a beautiful post to read, and honestly got me thinking a lot.

I only moved recently. This house, will be my fourth house. This current townhouse I’m living in, the house I lived in before, and the unit I lived in before that one, are all in the same suburb, and the house I was born in, is several suburbs away, close to forty minutes in the car. So since moving from my first house ever, I’ve never really moved out of this current suburb and I can walk to either of my last two houses if I really wanted to.

However, the house that I moved from most recently, was a house I spent a large majority of my childhood in. From the ages of six to nineteen I was in that house, and I did a lot of growing up there, as did my younger sister, who spent most of her life there, and my cousins.

My four immediate cousins from my mother’s side, my sister and I, spent a heap of time at my old house, especially during school holidays and breaks. When we were really getting into the swing of moving, going through the motions of slowly packing everything into boxes, labelling all our stuff, emptying out our house and garage, one of my cousins, my favourite, vocalised that she was gonna be exceptionally sad to not come back to the house again, and I was really confused for a second, until I realised how much of our childhood together was spent at my house.

We’d film music videos, short films, we’d have fashion shows and photo shoots, we built the fort of all forts and had sleepovers that went far too late in the night for kids aged between 4-12. When our parents all went out for parties my cousin and I who were the eldest were in charge, which meant all the kids were at my house, mattresses were pulled out and the big screen was powered up to watch movies.

For me, I got my first dog in that house, and I got to spend several weeks watching my younger sister running through the house, jumping from the kitchen counter to the sofa, refusing to touch the ground and grant the little puppy access to nip her ankles, even though she’d covered herself head to toe, down to the Ugg boots. I watched my house get renovated and extended, which meant my family was relegated to the front half of the entire house, with our microwave on the dining table, the mini fridge next to the sofa and all of us crammed into a small area until the extension was finished.

I celebrated my 18th birthday in the backyard of that house, drinking for the first time in front of my parents, and hosting a huge pyjama party to celebrate the occasion with my friends. We celebrated New Year’s eve in that house, as a big goodbye, with my whole family and nearly everyone commented on the memories made in that house over the years.

/just the spread the gals and I created/

The point of this blog post is, your gal’s feeling nostalgic. Since moving, I’ve kind of been moving around the house without the same feeling I used to in my old house, and it makes sense, considering I’ve only been in this house for three months, compared to the thirteen years I spent in my previous house. However, I’ve come to find that as soon as my sister gets home from school, or whenever my cousins and my family drop in unexpectedly for lunch or tea, or a couple of nights ago when a few of my cousins decided to spend the day here during the holidays, which ultimately turned into a sleepover, I find myself feeling right back at home, regardless of whether I’m in my big house of thirteen years, or in this new double-story townhouse for three months. So as is a must for all my posts, here’s a playlist. A playlist to feel nostalgic, but to also give you that real good feeling of knowing that home isn’t necessarily four walls and a roof.

Castle On The Hill – Ed Sheeran
