Well my weekend was a fairly cruisy one, filled with BBQs, Christmas decorating & a whole lotta sun! Probably the last weekend before things turn a bit crazy, so it was nice to sit down & get the bulk of my Christmas decorations all made up & ready to go. I cannot wait, this neon Christmas thing is going to be a goodie for sure! 

The weeks' seem to be absolutely flying by, so hopefully you are able to take a break & sit back & enjoy them, like I was able to this weekend!

(By the way my weekend posts are based on images from my instagram, so get over there & follow me!)

I just love this home of Devon Dyer from Devon Rachel. It has white walls, pretty furnishings, flowers & a whole lotta sass. My kind of place!

Isn't that top chair just amaze? I could also see it in a pink velvet...or all white...

I adore this shelving. It's so versatile & could be used as a bookcase, for pretty storage boxes or just a good ol' showing off of your fave things! Handy investment.

I hope you have a happy & sparkly Monday!

There isn't much I love more than a lil' bit of leather (actually a lot of leather does the trick just as well!) This dress has the perfect amount of leather to make it an easy wear on a summer's day. It is light & loose, with a wee bit of sass. Just what I love. Pair it with heels for evening, funky wee sandals or jandals for day & Converse for a more casual look. Win, win, win methinks!

I recently came across the talented design duo that make up Tassel + Gaine, a quirky new homewares business. Having met while working for two of Australia's leading retailers, the girls still manage to work full time & manage every aspect of their new venture- providing fashion forward products at affordable prices. 

These gorgeous colourful cushions are a treat for the eye & would look great in a number of settings, whether piled up on a bed or couch or separate on a desk chair or outdoors. I don't know what it is about watercolour & paint splatter cushions, but I really just can't get enough. I am sorry to say that my cushion collection's already getting a tad out of hand- but one of these babies would definitely be at the top of my list if I was in the market for more!

I have admired the illustrations of Megan Hess for quite some time now & always dreamed of owning one of her beautiful cushions. Commissioned to illustrate pieces for some of the biggest names in the fashion business such as Chanel, Dior, Cartier & so many more, this beauty certainly has it made. A couple of months ago, her home was photographed for Adore Home Magazine & I could not wait to get a sneak peak into the world of Megan Hess. 

 Boy, was I impressed! The elegance & glamour that exudes through her work & person is only intensified throughout her home. Old Hollywood glamour is brought to life with appearances from Coco & Audrey. A relatively monochrome pallete creates an opulent feel, with playful snatches of pastel pink & blue throughout.

Isn't it just stunning!? I really enjoy looking into the homes of talented creatives to see what they surround themselves with & what inspires them on a daily basis. 

I hope you are having a lovely Friday- the sun is shining here & has me wishing it was five o'clock already!

I wish I had the room to have a proper workspace, but alas the past couple years moving around have not allowed for it. I'll continue to admire & perve on other beautiful spaces, until the time comes where I can create my own!

I had a fabulous weekend with my BFF, checking out the scenery of this stunning place we call home & managing a hike on each day. Proud of our efforts we also indulged in a few cocktails to treat ourselves & to cool us down from the heat. I am amazed at how warm it is so soon, but I am not complaining in the slightest- bring on summer I say!

When I came across the image below on Pinterest, I had to know more about where it came from! After a little investigating I found the source to be that of Society Social, featuring stunning furniture, fabrics & goodies their online store stocks.

 I love that these wee vignettes have been created to give the consumer ideas on how they could potentially style a product. Very crafty!

Ahhh, doesn't it just make you want to race home & create some cute corners all of your own?

Although the weather has now gotten a lot warmer, this was my favourite outfit of winter/spring. Returning to living in the north has been just wonderful when it comes to dressing- no longer do I need to bundle up in many layers to brave the Wellington weather. All that is needed is a singlet, shirt & jacket! A coat is needed on the occasionally cool moments & a scarf is always an easy way to add a bit of fun & excitement to an outfit, but hardly an essential.

I recently stumbled upon these photos I had saved onto my computer earlier in the year via the very cool blog Citizens of the World. The home was one I could immediately see myself living in, with a neutral colour palette & an abundance of colour in the way of pretty things- a very 'me' space if you will.

I had the images saved for an occasion such as this. At the time I had not started this blog & knew this space would be a perfect showcase should I ever start one. It has just the right amount of colour, geometry, girliness & edginess- a combination I very much aspire to.

Citizens of the World is a great website which has articles on a range of different things, including interiors, life & travel. So don't be surprised if you see mention of them here again! (They also sell these amazing candles, but unfortunately they only have the one stockist in New Zealand, sad face)

Best wishes for a happy & sunny weekend!

Domino kindly introduced me to these images, which is the fine work of Houston interiors stylist Sally Wheat. There is much to love in her 'works of art'- from the clever use of old & new to the exciting use of colour & pattern. Each of these rooms have a lot of depth & personality, which really draws the eye in. Now I wont go on, I'll just leave you to drool over the rest of these babies...

This is me. Feeling like a kid again in my stripes, jelly shoes & overalls. Now, I am not usually one who dresses with comfort at the forefront of my mind. BUT if I was, this would be the outfit I would chose. Comfortable, practical & a wee bit ridiculus. But that's what life is all about, right?!

Happy Monday folks!

Another wonderful weekend has been & gone- & this one certainly felt like summer was here! I even busted out the old 'kini & made an early start on the tan this year (yay!). I may have become a little too red & sore, which is a fairly good warning for me this early on in summer.

 Other highlights were school fairs, fireworks on the beach, flowers & of course, lots of yummy food (image shows cranberry nut nougat, very Christmassy & quite possibly the yummiest nougat I am yet to try!)

Hopefully you enjoyed some fun in the sun this weekend too!

As we head into the silly season, there is so much build up & anticipation of good things to come! I honestly love this time of year; it's my favourite. Nothing beats summer, with the longer days, swims at the seaside, outdoor BBQs & picnics... the list could go on & on. There's just that unexplained extra special fizz in the air, everyone's moods lift & there is general jolliness & silliness all round- it truly is contagious!

One thing I especially love, is preparing for Christmas. The decorating, the baking- I LOVE it. The images shown here are my inspiration for this year- nothing suits Christmas in summer more than a neon Christmas, wouldn't you agree? While I can appreciate a traditional Christmas with red, white & green decorations, it really just isn't me. My family have had a different colour themed Christmas for as long as I can remember- & I hope to keep it that way! With lots of DIYs planned to achieve this jolly look, I feel I better get cracking...

Wish me luck!
