I just got back from Splendour in the Grass, a 3 day music festival in the far-northeastern corner of New South Wales and probably Australia’s biggest multi-day music festival. It was my first time going and although I am completely exhausted, I had such an awesome time!
The lineup was pretty epic this year and some highlights were Florence + the Machine, Death Cab For Cutie, Blur, Mark Ronson, Jenny Lewis, Tame Impala, plus some new discoveries too. I documented my way around like I did for Coachella, so a big Splendour post is definitely in the works :)
Can’t go wrong with some Saturday interior inspo. Jutta Tenninen is an interior designer at Finnish interior design studio, Bo LKV. Her home was featured on their blog and the moment I saw it, I fell in love – so much design goodness, I wouldn’t change a thing. Also highly recommend checking out the Bo LKV blog as there is a ton of interior inspiration on there, it’s all in Finnish, but hey, there are plenty of pretty pictures. Jutta also has her own blog, which is equally awesome.
I’ve been on the hunt for some new wall art for a while and my wishlist is starting to get a little out of hand… to the point where there wouldn’t actually be enough wall space for it all (or money for that matter, ha). Here is my somewhat condensed current wishlist of (affordable!) wall art goodness
The new apartment is coming along well, but some greenery was definitely needed, so I was super chuffed when I spotted the “it plant” of the moment, the fiddle leaf fig at my local garden centre. I have a habit of killing plants, but the lovely shop assistant assured me this one really difficult to kill, ha.
Here are 3 tips I was given for keeping your fiddle leaf happy:
- Only water when the top inch of soil is dry, test this by sticking your finger in the soil. Pretty soon you’ll figure out about how often it needs water. Keep in mind this can change season to season.
- The fiddle leaf is an ideal apartment plant and is best kept in bright, indirect light. So basically, you want it in a room full of light, but don’t have sun shining directly onto it as this can damage the leaves.
- Because the plant has such lush, large leaves, they may collect indoor dust which could block light to the plant, so carefully wipe the dust off with a soft, damp cloth to keep it healthy.
Can I start off by saying that there have been SO many 2015 albums that I have been enjoying – Florence, Death Cab, Jamie xx, Hot Chip – the list goes on. All of the songs on this playlist have been released this year and have been getting maximum play time on my Spotify. Enjoy :)
