2AM

"Lit through the darkness at 1:58"
- Taylor Swift


3/7/15 2:00am and Perth was concealed under an eerie cover of fog. I was unable to grasp the truth that I was still in the same city. Wanderlust rushing through my veins, my eyes were like a child's once again as my heart beat in absolute awe. '2am's were made for poets, lovers, writers, visionaries, photographers, painters, over thinkers, silent seekers, these are my favourite hours.' - Tulisan Manda

Spontaneous late night adventures is what I live for, endless drives, late night wanders in a park, swinging in the dark, lying in the grass and staring up at the universe, even just going to a 24 hour food place and pigging out. Late night adventures with the best people. A blank mind and open heart with nothing but good vibes and good company. 




I have these moments where I'm so void of all the superficial things we surround ourselves with in our daily lives, where everything disappears and all that is left is the feeling of content and wonder. Yes, there are no elements of fashion in this article. And no, this isn't an article about travelling. This is just one very simple post about finding a state of peaceful happiness in the simplest form: in your own city, with the people you already know. The beauty of what you already have. See past the fog and cherish it.

This blog has always been about inspiring my readers, and I hope this inspires you. We are too often 'looking forward' to something, to the weekends, to a holiday, and we forget the majority of our life: the days during the actual week. Life doesn't have to feel mundane. Late night adventures are truly the best.

  7. I completely agree with this. And I especially love your quote about 2AM being the hour of the artists and writers. Usually the mind strikes its creative process on those times of the night, or early morning technically, and it's just plain blissful. <3

  22. Being able to let go of our thoughts and focus on the daily gifts of nature that we've forgotten is a great therapy: looking at the sky, the day, the night, the sun, the stars or the fog... pure delight
