Cute Easter Cookies






Loving these cute Easter cookies over at Sweet Style.
They have inspired me to get in the kitchen and start baking.
I don't think I could achieve anything quite this clever
but I'm sure I coulsd whip up something tasty for Easter.

Happy Baking!

Tropical Sunset

Beach Chic

One of my favoutite things about holidays is cocktails at sunset ~
especially if it coincides with happy hour!!
After a hard day by the pool, swimming, snorkeling, shopping and sight seeing ~
there is nothing more romantic and relaxing than
dressing up for a pre-dinner cocktail and watching the sun go down!

French Seaside Cottage



beach look

Vive La France

I love the use of crisp white and natural materials
in this simple, seaside cottage in the South of France.
It's rustic, uncomplicated finishes promises fuss-free holidays and weekends.
The pop of turquoise really caught my idea.
These fun loving owners have used colourful accents with a sense of whimsy.

Natural Temptations

Mare, mare, mare, tanta voglia di arrivare

Natural Outdoor Furniture

 1 / 2 / 3 / 45 / 6 / 7 / 8 

We live outdoors in the summer months
so outdoor furniture and spaces are a really key element in Australia homes.

I am a big fan of natural materials and fibres
but I have conceded that the synthetic cane seen in modern outdoor sofas and chairs
is way more practical and durable than the real McCoy.
My favourite timber for outdoor furniture is teak
 and I'm loving this new trend of the fire pit.
This, and a lazy hammock swinging from a tree
makes for a well considered beach house.

A Blissful Weekend

 Soft & Neutral



For me weekends are all about chilling out and relaxing.

Long gone are the days of high energy weekends, parties
and back-to-back socialising.

Since moving to the coast my life has taken on a slower pace.
On weekends you're more likely to find me relaxing on my deck,
laughing with friends over a glass of wine in the sunshine.
