Taking Stock – September


Inspired by fave blogger Mrs Woog who was inspired by the fabulous Pip from Meet me at Mikes, I thought I’d give Taking Stock September a crack.

It’s a new season and although it doesn’t really feel like it yet in Sydney, a new season brings new beginnings and is a great opportunity to check in with where you’re at, where you’re going and what your coveting, buying, listening to and drinking!

Have a read, then it’s your turn my lovelies!
