I’m writing today’s article for my Mum, so she can understand what I do. I think she has this vision that I shop all day with other people’s money – if only! In order to debunk this myth I recently documented an entire day in the life of Hannah.
I wake up…
Please note that I do not normally sleep in until 8am it just so happens that I forgot to set my alarm last night & today is the day that i’m writing about my life. Did I think about recording the time as 6am for the purpose of this article? Yes, of course I did but honesty is the best policy etc.
I’m now up & unenthusiastically eating a banana smoothie bowl as I read my emails. Please note that I don’t enjoy eating healthy, however I have to eat some fruit & vegetables to counteract my love of wine.
Gus is death-staring me because he hasn’t had breakfast yet & he knows that he won’t be going on a walk today because Mamma slept in. Sorry Gus, I’ll make it up to you tomorrow.
I always set aside one morning a week to blog. Writing is not a task I overly enjoy so I need to blog in the mornings when my brain is fresh. I know that many bloggers are super organised and plan their topics weeks in advance – that’s not me. I prefer to improvise and write about whatever is on my mind at the time. Today I’m writing two blogs; ‘How to decorate a baby nursery when you don’t know the sex’ and ‘The crush I have on blush’.
Gus & I play fetch in the house with his tennis ball while I straighten my hair & choose a super cool outfit
I’m now shopping at Lilly & Lolly in Rosenberry. On my shopping list is the perfect crib for one my e-decorating clients. She is having her first baby and wants to create a gender neutral nursery as she doesn’t know the sex – this inspired my blog post earlier today. I find what I am looking for & also purchase this adorable ‘Basil the Fox‘ (image via Lilly & Lolly). I don’t need Basil (as I don’t have a baby) but I plan to give him to one of my pregnant friends as a gift – hopefully before Gus get’s him.
Late lunch – sushi of course
I’m in Bondi now meeting a client for an initial decorating consultation. Her name is Sally & she has hired me to decorate her lounge room & balcony. She pours us both a glass of wine & we sit down to discuss her decorating dreams. We talk about her style, her vision what she likes/doesn’t like, how often she entertains and a little bit about the decorating budget her Husband has suggested… I also take some photos & measurements before I leave. I explain that I will put together a decorating proposal and be in touch shortly. Sally says she can’t wait, neither can I!
I’m finally home, don’t you just love Sydney traffic! Gus is excited to see me but deep down I know he is still mad about missing his walk this morning. I sit down and email an e-decorating proposal to a client who hired me to style her entry room.
Time to get ready – my BF will be home shortly & we have plans to go out tonight
Gus is glaring at me… I can understand why but he is it getting upset for no reason because he is coming out with us!
We are out the door – my stylish BF, Gus & I. We are going to a local brewery for a few beers with our friends (Wayward Brewery
in Camperdown for those who are interested – dog friendly & really cool).
This is obviously not taken on this particular day – I forgot to take a photo of us!
We are home. I’ve possibly had a few too many beers & Gus has definitely had too much popcorn (drunk people love to feed him snacks). I’ll be tired in the morning but at least I remembered to set my alarm this time. Goodnight stylish folks x
