My every day view from my hometown in North Avoca | Burning sunsets (wearing T by Alexander Wang Top / Michael Kors Watch) | Favourite rings at the moment | Fresh blossoms | Instagramming, always | The month of May on my Sarah Hankinson calendar | Walking in a pool of golden light | Notebooks from Paris and Hello Kitty | Tropical sunsets from my balcony | Running from Luke | Flower Bomb swirls on cliff tops | Sweet treat breaks (wearing Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats) | A slice of my office | Instagramming like Gollum because I can | Thinking about what lies ahead under a glowing moon with Luke

I’ve been at home for longer than I had originally planned after a few opportunities for work popped up that required me to stay in Sydney. I couldn’t figure out why I was going so stir crazy, as usually I love every second of being at home, but it became a little clearer when my friends pointed out that I basically haven’t stopped moving and traveling since I went to Shanghai with Louis Vuitton last July. After covering so much ground in Europe I guess everything feels like it moves ten times slower here at home, but then again that’s not a bad thing as it’s always so refreshing coming back to my marshmallow bed and being able to collect my thoughts while I roll around in the sand or sit by the ocean. As Luke and I both work from home we’ll take breaks to get away from our computers and out of the house, which usually means coffee runs or going down to the beach to watch the sunset. When I’m standing on the shoreline with nothing but the sound of crashing waves against my ankles it always makes any past, present and future worries quickly disappear, leaving nothing but a simple moment to remind me there really isn’t anywhere else in the world I’d rather be. Appreciating the small things and the beauty of what makes home just so beautiful is something I hope I never forget. There’s really no place like home.
