HI FIVE FACTS.
ONE.
I’m a mum of one hilarious and strong-willed (!) two year old, I'm married to Ant, aka Nellie Fella (he can thank Clare from Trinket Store for that one!)

We transplanted ourselves from Toowoomba in QLD (not beachy QLD, the cold part) to the ACT about 7 years ago and I love the place an insane amount - mind your Canberra-bashing please peeps!

TWO.
I grew up in the bush but I was never very good at being a country kid, I can’t ride a horse and the first motorbike I ever rode I crashed and ended up in hospital. I’m still a bit of a tomboy though with a few bogan tendencies ;)

THREE.
Becoming a mother has changed me in all the good ways (except for the zero sleep but I'm not the Lone Ranger there!) After two big years with my daughter I can’t imagine life without her and her awesome dad and we would love to have at least one more kiddy running around. 

FOUR.
I once worked at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. I still wonder how this daggy kid from the country ended up there! Was my fave job ever until I became Ella’s mum xx

FIVE.
I am a total sook and I’ll cry at the most random things. I found myself bawling at the Sesame Street theme song one day (Hormones? Can I blame hormones?)

TOP FIVE TO FOLLOW.
@trinket_store Best. Workwife. Ever. I’m so glad we met at the quietest market of all time.
@thedustypoppy My friend IRL before we moved to Insta-land. So hard-working and fiercely loyal.
@brownpaperlemon Nikki gives me serious monochrome photo envy and she’s an amazingly kind human to boot.
@tinymountainstudio She wears her beautifully-drawn heart on her sleeve and she created the artwork for my mugs. And also cats. I love her especially because she’s nuts about cats. 
@dashthebrave Dash’s mum Carly is an inspiration. She’s a fundraising machine and I’m so happy when my phone dings with one of her post notifications. 
Oh and of course @captainandco but she already knows that I stalk her daily!
