Cotton Candy

Because it's the middle of Winter, every day in Sydney has been either rainy or freezing cold. There were a couple of warm days in the holidays and of course the day that I decided to shoot this outfit was one of them! However, I survived, despite some odd looks from members of the public.

I got this black coat and dusty pink knit as early birthday presents and I'm completely in love! I picked them out specifically for my trip at the end of the year (any guesses where?? Hint: it's going to be very cold when I'm there). The coat is so so warm and the hood makes me look like an Eskimo! 

Oh and I'm 18 today! Thank you to those of you who have been following me since I was 15 years old (feels like ages ago) and WELCOME to those of you who have only just discovered my blog. I truly appreciate every comment/ email I receive and it means so much to me that you all support me in what I love to do. 

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Much love as always,
G x

Dancing with Fairies

Welcome to another series of photos by my wonderfully talented friend Tashi. We spent another weekend together last holidays gallivanting around Sydney visiting the city, outdoor pools and the Botanical Gardens. We shot lots of different outfits, one of which was this dusty pink cropped shirt and black skirt. I usually don't wear skirts as they don't sit right on me, but this one looked half-decent and really pulled this outfit together.

There was something magical about this place. The way that the sun peeped through the trees and the breeze that made my top flutter. The ocean was calm and peaceful. Oh how I wish I could go back here when I didn't have a care in the world (I actually had hours of holiday homework which I had barely started, but let's just pretend I didn't). 

Also, this is my final week as a child!!! Next Sunday I'm turning 18 which is so crazy. High school has just flown by so I'm really trying to enjoy every day of this last term of school. I have something super exciting coming up in 2 weeks which I've been wanting to tell you all for ages but you will just have to wait for a little while longer...

Have a lovely week and enjoy the photos from our blissful day at the park, that I doodled all over!

25 ways to productively procrastinate

I'm sure I'm not the only one here who is an expert at procrastinating. Unfortunately, sometimes it can be hard to avoid so I have started 'productively procrastinating.' This way, at least some things are getting done. It also can help you to feel refreshed for when you're ready to get back into your to do list.
milky way blogger's list of ways to productively procrastinate
  • Clean out your wardrobe
  • Redecorate your room
  • Update your diary/ planner/ journal
  • Respond to emails
  • Meditate
  • Do a yoga session (there are some great ones on YouTube)
  • Get outside, go for a walk, run, swim, bike ride or anything that gets your heart rate up
  • Read a few chapters of a book
  • Have a bubble bath
  • Cook a meal to have later that day/ week
  • Buy some herbs/ veggie plants and create a small veggie garden
  • Create a vision board for your bedroom
  • Clean out your make-up bag
  • Colour in (you can either buy a colouring in book or download a free image off the internet)
  • Catch up with an old friend
  • Have a power nap
  • Spend time with a sibling 
  • Create a music playlist (for study, exercise etc.)
  • Read through your favourite blogs 
  • Make a list of things to get done that day/ week/ month 
  • Watch a hair tutorial and try out some new hairstyles 
  • Watch a TED talk
  • Make your bed

How to keep a Bullet Journal

milky way blog, milkywayblog, milky way blogger, milkywayblogger, mwb, georgia, gigi, abbott, bullet journal, bujo, journaling, blog, blogger, vlogger, diary, journal 
A few days ago, a friend who I haven't seen in a couple of years wrote to me and said that she had read my previous bullet journal post and had started one! Since that was a little while ago that I wrote that (and some of you new readers won't have seen that post), I thought I'd give you an update on my bullet journal and maybe it can help you start one or even get some ideas for your store-bought diary.

For those of you who missed my last post, click here to read about what a bullet journal is, why I prefer it over a store bought diary/ planner and how you can set up your own one. I first heard about bullet journaling in January when I was getting organised for the year ahead and have been using the system since (so for over 5 months). I find inspiration for layout ideas mainly from Pinterest and Tumblr and others I make up as I go. 

My favourite layouts that I have been using:

gratitude log
study tracker
monthly memories
daily logs

Layouts that I haven't used frequently:

 expenses log
monthly overview
monthly habit tracker

Layouts that I'd like to incorporate into next month:

places I have visited
blog post/ YouTube video ideas
weekly goals
food log
exercise diary

Here is flip through of my bullet journal (I haven't included every page as there are over 100!) If you're interested in starting one, hopefully this can give you some inspiration on some layouts to use. During the school term, I film myself setting up each day so head over to my snapchat (milkywayblogger) if you'd like to see that and also see other snippets from my day.

Hope you are all well,
Much love as always

Every time I start a new page, I will put down the page number and write it down at the start (I don't pre-plan what will go where).

I got this idea from Kara who runs the blog Boho Berry. Pretty much you write down the 10 key aspects of your life (I added a small description under each one) and then on the left page, you rate how you are going. Every time I make an improvement in one area, I colour in another part of the circle.
