Autumn Picnic

Liana of @findingfemme on an autumn picnic in Daylesford

Autumn is my favourite season by far. Since I haven't been well, my sister, Liv and I decided to have a relaxing day with a picnic lunch, breathing in the woody air in Daylesford. It was a simple set up. Some things you won't see in these pictures are the wasps hovering about the dropped leaves, the tiny spiders that kept dropping on us or little green bugs that ended up all over the blanket. I hated how I looked, particularly because I'm still fighting against this hateful haircut, but there you go. Enjoy!

How My Sister Died

27 Mar 2018


Something I wear quite openly in most of my blog photos is a small tattoo on my left forearm. It’s the logo from a bottle of perfume from the 1920’s, which shares the name of my late sister, Maja (pronounced: May-ah). Often I find that when people spark up a conversation with me about the tattoo, that they become apologetic when they realise it’s related to her death and they feel bad about talking about it, but it’s something that we really, really need to talk about.

Settler and Sons Twilight Dinner

20 Mar 2018


When I arrived at the Settler and Sons dinner, it was at the end of golden hour. I’d driven towards Nowhere Creek as the final light from the sun touched everything it could reach. Thick, lazy light, heavy like honey, oozed over the golden hills. My camera was heavy in my lap and I so wanted to stop and capture every view in every direction just to remember the moment. But, I was late, I couldn’t stop, so I glanced at the golden hills with their purple shadows, the windows of my car lowered, hoping the memory would be tattooed on my heart.

Juliette Has a Gun Masterclass

16 Mar 2018


Whenever I talk to people about the Perfume Masterclasses at Sweet Fern, they have often never thought about what is actually entailed in one. So after I have one yet another Perfume Masterclass visit, I wanted to share the proceedings with you, so can learn more about the mystery of them.

Sunny Side Up

Liana of @findingfemme roller skates in Geelong for Juliette Has a Gun

Last year I fell in love with the incredible experience of a Perfume Masterclass at Sweet Fern in Ballarat. At the end of my first masterclass, I walked away with a bottle of Juliette Has a Gun’s black bottled fragrance ‘Lady Vengeance’. It was my first proper perfume purchase and one that began a love affair. You may recall me talking about it in this blog post shoot I did which featured the bottle.
