Hi there! I’m Teresa Watts, often known as Chisa – a digital designer from Perth, Australia.

By day I work as a senior designer for Bam Creative; by night (and by weekend) I dabble in various personal projects as well co-running a creative magazine, Side Project.

This blog is a haphazard collection of random thoughts, photos and things that I’ve created, with an occasional focus on travel, food, decor and other lifestyle things.

Recently I’ve been exploring the concept of “less but better”, the Slow Movement, mindful consumption, simplicity, minimalism and questioning the cult of busy – from my personal perspective, as a young(ish) person with to much ambition and too many commitments.

You can get in touch with me by emailing:
