Hello World!

Welcome  to my little patch of cyberspace!

My name is Tracey, I live in Perth’s southern surburbia with my new hubby of nearly a year and our furbaby, Corey (he is a 6-year-old Bundle of Destruction with Legs Staffy, who is also the love of our lives).

I am re-discovering my love of beauty and fashion (once lost somewhere in my younger, slimmer years) after 4 and a half years of spending a large majority of my week in a rather monochromatic work uniform. Speaking of work, I work in my perfect job as a travel agent and thus try to spend a lot of time travelling, or at least dreaming of destinations to travel to next – not difficult as I am surrounded by travel all day long.

I also love crafting – mainly beading, cross-stitch, crochet and card-making but I jump from one to another depending on my mood and motivation, but always looking to try new creative pursuits. I love food and cooking, I’m attempting to grow a small vegetable/herb garden and I am always trying to be a better wife, home-maker, all-round-good-person-in-general. Oh and I am obsessed with stationery. And True Blood.

Hopefully through this blog journey, I will make new friends, pick up new ideas and skills, develop those creative sparks and become that better all-round-good-person-in-general that I aim to be.

That’s it for my introduction, at the risk of boring you all to death.. plus I still have to retain an element of mystery somewhere! I wouldn’t like to call my blog a beauty-blog, craft-blog, food-blog as it wouldn’t be fair to all those amazing blogs and bloggers who specialise in their respective fields.. I am more an all-over-the-shop blogger who just wants to share the snippets from my little patch of the universe. I look forward to sharing our little journey with you all :)

P/S: I’m new to this whole blogging thing (long-time reader, first-time blogger) so please be patient with me if things don’t go the way they are  meant to in blog-land initially!


  1. Your blog seems a lot like my one that I only recently started. I just like having a platform to pretend I can talk about anything I want and people will listen :-) Hope you enjoy your blogging journey as much as I have so far. It can become quite addictive!!

  2. Hi Michelle, thank you for reading my blog! I have just visited yours and love your post on the Better Homes & Gardens show, I wish they had one in Perth too. I visited Ikea last weekend as well and was completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of items and people there. I think I will stick to circling things in the catalogue!
