Holiday Dreaming


Bora Bora Resort Wardrobe

It's about this time of year
when we Aussies pack our bags and head north to sunny Queensland
or jump on a plane and head OS to warmer climates.
This is the first winter when my husband and I will stay put.
With a new house and a renovation that has blown the budget
I will have to content myself with some armchair travelling.
Dreaming about exotic destinations will have to keep me happy this year!

Summer Ripe


One of the things I love about summer is fresh fruit.
Nothing beats luscious, ripe fruit
so sweet and juicy that it dribbles down your chin!
Now that we have a backyard full of fruit tress ~
fresh fruit picked straight from the tree
is an everyday luxury!

White and Light

White & Light

I love the simplicity and purity of an all white interior.

White is the perfect blank canvas
to create your own personal style.
White is an easy way to blend 
old with new and
designer pieces with vintage treasures.
With a predominantly white palette 
you can mix various styles with confidence.

Vintage Blue

 Vintage Blue

Bring the colours of the ocean into your home 
with rustic finishes, a coastal palette and salvaged charm.
Here are some cost effective ways to  ~
dress up your table
add some charm to your living room
re-cycle some old chairs with a coat of paint and  
create a welcoming entry.

Moody Beach Days

I am been very proud of myself this winter 
making sure I do a 40 minute beach walk every day. 
It finishes with a big hill so there's plenty of puffing and panting 
so it must be doing me some good!
I miss my running (too hilly round here) but I have taken up Zumba classes which I love.
So after 8 months of renovating and living on pies, pizza and fish 'n' chips we have finally got back into healthy eating habits and plenty of exercise. And it's amazing how much better I feel when we have this balance in our lives. 

Today on our walk the sky was dark, stormy and moody
but there was beautiful light which reminded me of these photos.
