Pretty happy with my Willy Wonka 🥰 I started our conversation on Tinder with “you look like trouble”. I slept with him on our second date. I was the one to bring up the conversation about exclusivity. I’m no expert on dating, I’ve definitely had far more rejection than success but here’s what I do know, there is no such thing as a right way or a wrong way in dating. There’s only a right person and a wrong person. The right one won’t care that you messaged first, won’t care when you sleep together, won’t play games, won’t send mixed messages. They will bring out the best in you rather than the worst. Wait for the one who makes loving you easy 💫 . . . . . #bluffknoll #denmark #willybae #westernaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #westsunset #beforeandafterphotoediting #worththewait #tindersuccessstory #nottrouble #exclusive #therightone #therightonewillcome #therightonewillcomealong #waitfortherightone #norules #datingadvice #datingapp #datingtips #attachmentstyles
Hello 👋🏼 I’d like to think that If I were to meet you (yes you reading this) there wouldn’t be a dissonance, you would be my people. We could talk about real shit, the things that matter, the experiences we have, we could be vulnerable and hold space for each other. We wouldn’t talk about the latest celebrity gossip, the hottest trends, our makeup or our hair. Here is what I have come to realise: I am so grateful to have a community of people who read what I write and who’s comments engage in conversation with me rather than tell me I’m pretty or that they like my outfit. I am blessed to have people follow me for substance over superficial and THAT cannot be measured by a number. I’m so proud to have created a space on this platform that allows vulnerability, real talk, learning and growing together. For a moment I felt that space didn’t matter, I undervalued it and in turn I undervalued you by focusing on the trolls and on what I didn’t have rather than what I do. I don’t know if I’m ready to open myself and this space up again fully just yet, but I wanted to pop in, say hello, and let you know that I’m working on it, on changing my perspective, on taking off the pressure to be everything for everyone and be more grateful. I know this isn’t conducive to conversation but just for a little while, I’m going to turn off comments. I love hearing from you guys so feel free to DM or give this a like but just until I feel I can give the attention and effort that your comments deserve and withstand any trolls I’m spending less time on here x Feeling pensive with Rhonda @hondaaustralia #sp . . . . . #hondaaustralia #yourvibeourtribe #yourvibeisyourtribe #yourvibeattracksyourtribe #yourvibeattractsyourtribe #honda #dunsborough #westaus #hiatus #digitaldetox #realtalk #realshit #realconversations #theimportantthings #vulnerable #vulnerability #vulnerabilityispower #higherperspective #beforeandafterphoto #undervalued
I took the past few days completely off sharing anything on social media. I craved privacy and peace after tabloid journalists tried to shame me for sharing MY thoughts on MY Instagram last week. Their articles led to people who don’t follow or know me coming to my page and trolling me. Whether I should have or not, I bit back, I spoke out against them and it all took its toll. I switched my profile to private and spent the weekend disconnected from my phone and connected with my loved ones. Sorry to those who have taken time to DM me about what happened, I haven’t responded yet, I just needed some space but I sincerely appreciate your support and kindness. I hate that I now second guess sharing my thoughts for fear of it being taken out of context and having my character attacked. I have tried my best to be open, vulnerable and speak my truth on a platform that rewards the opposite, knowing it would sometimes ruffle feathers and not make my opinion popular. So should I now be silent? While I certainly feel overly exposed atm and upset by what happened, as my semi colon tattoo represents; my story will continue; I will continue. The media and the trolls will not win. I wear this mint Amethyst ring for clarity and protection against negative energy as well as helping me to keep my heart open. Thank you to @uberkatejewels for sending me this gemstone ring when I need it most. (FYI Kate is having an end of financial year sale for anyone else who loves crystals and jewellery.)
What’s your why? Beginning any journey, especially a fitness one, starts with a WHY. 🤷🏼♀️ I sometimes get asked how I stay motivated to exercise. Nowadays my reason is more habitual, routine and values based but it hasn’t always been that way. My fitness journey was initially about my heart 💔 I felt so broken and so weak. I couldn’t be strong inside, I couldn’t protect my soft squishy heart, so I decided to become strong outside. To build strength from the outside in. That’s how it started anyway. 6 years later and fitness is now deeply embedded in my lifestyle and my values. It has helped me learn to have a true appreciation and fascination for the body and all that it does. It has been the one constant in my life no matter what else is happening. I think the older you get the more you start to pay attention to your body, mainly because things start to go wrong 😅 So my advice to anyone trying to find motivation (before it becomes habit) is to have a really strong WHY and remind yourself of it every day. Then find a source of exercise that works for you. I did Kayla’s #bbg for 2 years, then my own at home stuff, yoga, megaformer, running, gym and now for the past 6 months my favourite place to drip sweat is @f45_training_booragoon 🏋🏼♀️ I’m using heavier weights and pushing myself harder than I ever have! So tell me, what is your why!?
Haven’t posted in a week and it’s been nice 👍🏼 I’ve felt super disheartened by Instagram lately - a combination of an unexplained decline in engagement and the research I’ve been doing about the platform. I’m having a whinge but when I see posts that are of a girl in a bikini with a caption of the sun emoji ☀️ getting thousands of likes, and I try so hard to post meaningful content I really can’t help but feeling it is pointless even bothering. I’m also frustrated with myself for letting something so fickle as ‘likes’ even get to me. All of the research I’ve done points to how damaging it is to see ‘perfect people’ living the ‘perfect life’ and yet that is exactly the kind of content that we encourage each other to produce because that is what receives most likes. I don’t know how to change this. I don’t have an answer. I know that showing what has been edited helps which is why I’ve started posting the original pics (swipe to see) but I don’t know how the ‘real’ with ever overtake ‘fake’. It’s just disheartening. Makes me feel like taking a long step away from the platform. Sorry for the rant, thanks for reading ✌🏼 peace, love, positivity and all that Jazz.

If you’re not a dog person, I’m not sure we can be friends. Who else judges ppl they meet on how much they like dogs?🙋🏼♀️😂 These two bring me so much joy! Suzie is 9yo and is a bit of a space cadet. She’s calm, tolerant, likes to sleep and loves chinese prawn crackers. Lucy is 7.5yo and is completely neurotic. She is anxious, affectionate, likes to lick the air and loves to fetch. They couldn’t be more different but they really are #bestbuddies as their cute customised #dogbandanas say! 🐶💞🐶 For lots more doggie accessories go to @brightstarbuddies I also got them matching collars, leads and dog tags (swipe to see plus the unedited versions).

I feel so flat and defeated today 😔 so here’s a pic of a better day doing the #valleyofgiantstreetopwalk in Denmark. I feel flat because (a) I stayed up most of last night trying to get my assignment finished (b) I didn’t finish my assignment and had to ask for an extension (c) I’m too tired to go out tonight with my man to a concert (d) My profile visits have hit an all time low and I don’t know why (e) I did not exercise and ate junk food the past 2 days whilst locked to my computer (f) all of the above have resulted in a skin flare up 😩 and yes I know there are worse problems in the world, and I know it will be okay, but right now i feel heavy and exhausted because I am human and bad days are okay too.
Who else has felt the pressure to figure out their passion? 🙋🏼♀️ Who else has felt inadequate or they’re failing because they haven’t figured ‘it’ out? 🙋🏼♀️ Who else is still trying to decide what they’re going to be when they ‘grow up’!? 🙋🏼♀️ If you are someone who has known all your life what you want to do, what you were destined for and go in pursuit of that with everything you’ve got, I am so happy for you. Keep going. But this post isn’t for you. This post is to say f**k passion! And f**k the passion bullies. Mainstream inspirational clichè has us all scrambling to find our one true passion and then spend our life in pursuit of it. I heard the most incredible podcast from the writer of Eat Pray Love, Elizabeth Gilbert, protesting the idea of pursuing passion and it was a total ‘ah-huh’ moment💡🤯 If you’re like me, you don’t have one burning passion, one true calling, you have a lot of interests. You pursue some of those interests and sometimes it works out and a lot of the time it doesn’t and you try something else. It’s sometimes exhausting to look back on all the shifts and changes in direction trying to find that one burning passion. Elizabeth Gilbert describes people like me as Hummingbirds. We fly from place to place, trying many things, building a mountain of perspective from which our gift to the world is just that, our wealth of wisdom & experience. Gilbert’s advice for the Hummingbird is to follow your curiosity and let it take you to all the amazing places that it allows you to go! Let CURIOSITY rather than passion be your guide!! Passion is an intimidating, grand concept. It is demanding and greedy and insists it takes everything out of you. It can be a dangerous impulse. If you don’t agree then I challenge you to look back on your life and recall the most passionate love story you’ve ever had. Remember that? Yeh, how did that work out for you? And what kind of condition were you in when it was over and passion had taken what is always demands, which is EVERYTHING?! Passion can strip your life bare and leave you lost and empty. So f**k pursuing passion. Pursue curiosity. F**king AMEN! Swipe for unedited photo
You guys are the best!!! I’m seriously overwhelmed by the amount of support and information I’ve received regarding adult cystic acne! 💞 I took this photo a couple of months back to promote @saharasoul_ (face tanning mist which I love) but I hated every single photo because I was so embarrassed by my skin. I’m posting it now and I have you guys to thank for giving me the confidence to do so. I think the biggest take away is that I’m not alone in this. So many people experience problems and the more open and honest we are, the more open and honest we invite others to be. So thanks you, thank you, thank you for sharing 🙏🏼 A couple of things I wanted to address: 1. Accutane: The reason I will never take It is because of the concerning side effects, one of which is depression. Given my history of depression I won’t go anywhere near it, my mental health trumps my physical appearance. 2. Diet: Lots of suggestions to go dairy free. I went dairy free for pretty much the whole 7 months I was in Bali and my skin was worse than ever. I have noted suggestions to try sugar free and gluten free. I also had a lot of recommendations to drink celery juice first thing each morning. 3. Ointments and treatments: I think these are an expensive bandaid to the real internal issue. While skin care is important, it is not a long term solution as it doesn’t address the root cause (so Rodan & Fields reps you can stop contacting me). 4. I have tried prescription medication and topical creams which haven’t worked. Many suggestions to try Spironolactone which I’ll need to research. 5. Everyone’s skin is different, the treatment that works for one won’t work for another. I’m so grateful for all the recommendations but it shows me just how varied the solution can be! I think the next step for me is going to a naturopath (I’m sick of doctors) and getting my hormone and cortisol levels tested as high testosterone and cortisol can lead to acne in the areas I have it. Once I know if it’s hormone or diet related I can take the next step. I shall keep you posted! Seeking recommendations for Perth based skin specialist naturopaths?!?
