Long weekend joy



For all my Australian readers did you have a lovely long weekend? My Monday was perfect! I delicious brunch, a beautiful sun filled day and a spot of shopping. Then I finished the day with tidying our bedroom. The thing with me is that it isn't messy on the outside, the mess and disorder is hidden in our drawers and wardrobe. I try so hard being tidy but it just doesn't last.

As crazy as it sounds, I adore cleaning our bedroom. I find clothing I haven't seen for a while, sometimes a voucher or two i misplaced and things like lip glosses that i put away somewhere and just forgot about. Still I love the feeling of everything being in order (even if it's just for a little while). Kellie xx

  4. I am the same way. My closet and drawers are a mess, but as long as the outside is tidy, I am sane.

    Cheers,

  6. Gorgeous photos! I think it's a constant struggle to keep things organized and tidy. I try to make it easier to keep things tidy by creating storage spaces where I can easily put things away, and even then it's not so easy. But there is nothing like the feeling of a freshly cleaned room, so I try to focus on that when I'm delaying to clean up :)

    Have a great Tuesday!
