Boho Baby Shower | Inspire Musings Creative

In late November last year I had the absolute pleasure of organising, styling and catering my lovely Auntie and Uncle's baby shower, before the imminent arrival of my little cousin Lara, who was soon born a month later (exciting!!!).

Set against the background of my back garden, it was only appropriate to make sure everything was homely, rustic and welcoming, with a touch of bohemian decor - true to what Inspire Musings Creative is all about. The event featured a subtle colour palette of blush pink, green and blue-grey against the natural timber chairs, dessert table, pallet bar and allll of the wild flowers that feature throughout the garden.

To keep our big family happy and full, I created a grazing 'runner' down the middle of our table, making it easy for everyone to get in on the action. All of the produce was sourced from local farmers' fruit stalls and small goods suppliers, with a few home-made goodies thrown in - like our savoury muffins and quiche, and lust-worthy cake by one of my talented Aunties.

Other elements around the garden were styled with native wildflowers, crochet bunting and our cute cactus candles, while the dessert table featured our natural wood cake stands, bohemian lanterns, bottles, and our gorgeous ornate tea cups. One of my favourite touches to the day was our pallet bar, sitting pretty as you walked in with prosecco spritz cocktails waiting for guests on arrival...

South Australian Travel Diary: Intro

Hello friends!

Welcome to my new blog series, the South Australian Travel Diary. Considering I tend to spend many of my weekends exploring our great state, camping under the stars and hiking SA's peaks, I thought it would be a perfect way to kick off the travel stories side of Inspire Musings. 

I want to inspire fellow Adelaidians to explore our bloody beaut state, and entice the rest of you Aussie babes to come and visit us down South. Throughout the series I'll be taking you around South Australia through my words and pictures, while letting you in on all my tips and tricks along the way.

Next Sunday I'll be dropping the first blog in the series - so keep a weathered eye on the gram for the announcement.

That's the way it is, but is it how it should be?

This evening I caught up with one of my closest friends, and a new friend, for beers, banter and a little bit of business (but mainly beers). After our conversations I reflected back on a beautiful piece of writing I read today, written by aforementioned close friend - and it got me thinking. Why do we conform to societal norms? I was so disgruntled/motivated by my thoughts that I literally scribbled them down on a piece of note-paper I had lying around. 

Scribbling in question. 

Scribbling in question. 

For those reading along at home, there's next to no way of deciphering said scribbles, so I've translated them for you.

Why do we need to 'escape' the weekly grind? Why isn't our weekly grind one of purposeful existence? It's amazing how fear rules our lives - the fear to quit our mundane, mind numbing jobs, take that road less travelled and exceed our own expectations of living. The fear of not being 'accepted' in society, to fill the 'normal' stereotype. 

Societal norms are not norms, they are constructs designed to keep our minds numb, our brains full of utter crap that does not matter. 

Consume this to make your life better. Dress like this to make you look richer, spend money on this to continue living this fucking monotonous drawl people call life. 

I'm taking a stand in this moment, to live life to the absolute fullest - in every capacity of the word. 

That's enough for today.
