SEASIDE SUMMERS

For me, my summer holiday is just hours away now, and how welcome it is! I hope to spend most of my days by the sea, probably reflecting on the year gone, and looking forward with hope to the new year! Christmas in Australia is perfection. It means a brunch with family, an afternoon swim and lazing in the shade afterwards.... Bright summer sun, and the smell of salt in the air. 

BEJEWELED



Oooh some lovely pieces in Samantha Wills latest collection. The shoot is also just as lovely, so bright & summery.

BLOWN AWAY






Wow, something really blew me away when I saw these images by Glynis Selina Arban. Possibly the combination of the most gorgeous crisp colours, with amazing dresses, movement, and fresh photography. So I must thank Susanna-Cole for showing me. I am inspired.

KAREENA

At the finders keepers market on the weekend, I was delighted to find Kareena's stall. She designed the beautiful poster for the finderskeepers market that I posted here. I picked up myself one of the above for my wall!  
For more of her beautiful work see here

HOMEMADE

We are up to our 8th chocolate at home on our advent calender. How sweet is this one though! Little fabric cones wrap up a little present or treat for each day until christmas. Bit late now, but there is always next year.
  Found here through here.

PARROT CAY


My gorgeous friend, who is also an amazing chef, has just jetted off to the Bahamas, the Island of Parrot Cay to be exact..... and I just had to share with you some of the beautiful photos she has taken of this place. She has been busy cooking for the rich and famous, but managed to get a little free time to see and taste the local Conch and drink icy cocktails by the ocean.
