The best place to be when. . .

Over the weekend I turned 25! Woah - This happened to concide with a ski trip to Mt Hotham & I thought the top of a mountain was a pretty great place to celebrate 25 years!

The weather was amazing - The snow was soft and fluffy (and there was SO SO much of it!)

Here are a couple of snaps for you to look at while I continue to dream about how great it was

I can't wait to get up there again! Xx

One to live by

Believe it or not this year is my year off. Apart from working 2 jobs + freelancing + running my own business - I've been trying to work out what works for me / What ideals I choose to live by.

I'm doing this by reading / listening and learning as much as I can. Any talk / conference I hear of and feel is relevant I sign straight up, I keep my eyes peeled for books, blog posts, magazines and anything I can read to help enhance my learning.

Today amongst some other lot of gems I came across in my daily reading - I saw this. . . and I thought that's what I aim to live by in a nutshell.

If you want it on your wall as a daily reminder you can buy it here.

DIY: MT Washi Tape Pen Cups!

We live in a society where most of us are fairly time poor, so I thought I'd make a quick and simple DIY tutorial that is so super cute it will brighten up your desk in just a few minutes! - Also who doesn't love a DIY post? I did my first one back in October last year and here goes my second attempt! 

Here are the steps I took

Such a simple way to brighten up your desk!
I'd love to see anything you make inspired by this post! Please Tweet or Instagram any photos of your creations to @bypomegranate ! 

Since taking the photos and making these pen ups I've gone a little MT tape crazy! Below is the pattern on my new box to sit next to my pen cups!
