A place to call home


After a near year of travel the time has come for us to find a place to call home. Come February we will be packing our swags and heading to Sydney. It's been one hell of an adventure, from the West Coast to the East Coast and everywhere in between. We spent a sweltering summer in Florida, lived the dream in a crumbling Brooklyn warehouse, hiked our way through dozens of National Parks, camped out in goodness knows how many Walmart's and soaked up enough Americana to last a lifetime. Oh and to top it off we got engaged, the land of opportunity has treated us well!

As much as I will miss the indescribable freedom of living on the road, exciting things await us back home. I will be returning to my handmade clothing label, something I have missed dearly whilst being abroad and Oli will be studying animation at UTS.

To all the wonderful people I have met during this odyssey, it's been an absolute pleasure and you shan't be forgotten. To any Sydney siders out there, lets get acquainted!

  3. Then get ready to burn because this summer has been a HOT one!!! I am from Brisbane but my friends in Sydney have been melting, hope it's not too hot when you return :)

    I look forward to seeing the new designs you come up with, I found your blog and Etsy after I kept seeing your wonderful kitty dress pop up in my Tumblr feed.

  7. I'm going to university in Sydney after this year in London. It's a small world; you never know. It'd be nice to see another Melburnian.

  9. It will be lovely to have you in Sydney, I'm also an animator and work right by ITS, so perhaps our paths will cross :)
