All white now

I may have mentioned this before, over the Christmas break we plan to paint the inside of our house, so domestic.

At the moment, I think we are agreed that all white is our color.

I so love this combination of white with wood, so clean and timeless.

Isn't this kitchen ah-mazzing. I love these Kevin Hicks pendants, they work so well in a white kitchen, actually I think they will work in any kitchen.

These stools are a little random, but I would totally love the clear one (or more than one), or even the grey one. We have also been looking for something like this in wood for our bathroom to sit next to a hurricane lamp.

We are avid hoarders of books in our houehold. I must create this library, and how about that couch... I think I would spend every weekend curled up on the the couch with books, chocolate and wine.

Finally, I'm loving the idea of the table setting below. So perfect for a night in for 2.

Ok we're nearly there - Friday tomorrow, woo hoo!

Handbag perfection!

I have been on a quest for months (feels like longer) to find my perfect bag and now I've found it - at least a picutre of it anyway. When we were last in New York, I dragged poor Geoff into so many stores and I think I got a little overwhelmed with too many options and came away empty handed. It hasn't stopped me looking though.

Usually, I opt for a black bag but this Celine beauty ticks all the boxes - love it! Now to see if I can actually fine it.

 Coming in at a very close second is Chanel.  I really love this bag, another classic beauty.

 Of course in my handbag hunt I had to wander past Mulberry. Geoff and I are always on the lookout for a Gnome for our courtyard. These are from Mulberry's courtyard - aren't they amazing.

Finally - how amazing is Olivia Palmero's outfit at this Mulberry event - always loving her style.

Hope you're having a great week,

Pink pants

I absolutly adore Bee's blog Atlantic-Pacific and look forward to her posts every day. She really knows how to put together an outfit!

When I saw Bee wearing these gorgeous 'Pink Pants' they were immediately included on my NYC shopping list. Needless to say, she styles them a little more glamerously than I do.

Happy Monday.

Room lovin...

Over the Christmas break we have decided we are going to paint the inside or our house ourselves. Pretty funny considering we haven't a clue what we are doing - thankfully we have some family members who can offer loads of advice. I have been looking through loads of websites and magazines for inspiration and below are some of my favorites.

I love everything about the way Tricia Guild puts together a room. This room is so light and airy yet still has loads of color, love it.

I also love how light this living room is - how amazing are these windows.

Loving this kitchen. Maybe after I finish painting next project could be tiling the kitchen in subway tiles.

Ok so this is Meg Ryan's dining room and it is absolutly stunning. I love the tiny pendant lights hanging above the dining table.

I have come across this courtyard picture so many times and must admit it has always been my favorite. I would adore to have an outside space as beautiful as this.

Getting comfy on the weekend

Often on the weekend I just stare into the closet thinking how can I have so many clothes and nothing to wear.

My weekend wardrobe generally revolves around a pair of jeans - check out these stylish fashionista's...

Sometimes I find the Olsen twins to be a bit hit and miss for my style, but I must say I love this outfit.

Can't go wrong will all black and red lippy

I so need this top - love it!

So totally glamerous - every weekend needs a little glamour.

And I would add this divine Kate Spade necklace. I am a girl after all.

Hope you have a great day!

Festive Friday

I don't know what's happening, it's still early November and everyone already seems to be getting into the Festive Spirit. Christmas parties are starting to appear in the diary, decorations going up, people already counting down the days - I haven't even thought about Christmas shopping yet! Time to get started...

I find the best way to get into the Christmas Spirit is to decorate. If only I had a fireplace and mantle - this is what Christmas would look like

I love this idea of a Christmas candy cane vase but maybe instead of roses, maybe some Waratah's. I love Australian native flowers.

 Needless to say, I have also come across some stocking stuffers.

Top and Necklace from one of Australia's best designers: Morrison - if you have never checked them out please do here, Morrison also make sure you explore through their website and the story behind Morrison the dog, will bring a tear to your eye.

Toms shoes: found here Toms
They look fab, but more importantly, buy one pair and they give a pair of new shoes to a child in need.

Tory Burch iPad cover Tory Burch
Yes I am obsessed with everything Tory Burch, but who can blame me.

And why not finish the end of the week with a super quote from Pinterest 

Hope you have a super weekend.

Summer has arrived

First summer weekend is finally here. Finally it's 30 degrees and I don't have to wear layers of clothes.

As I cannot function without coffee - generally our first stop on the weekend involves coffee. Today it was at Padre at the South Melbourne Market. If you're ever in the area it is well worth the visit.

Finally I have a photo of the gorgeous Geoffrey smiling - I caught him off guard!

Coffee is starting to take affect - I am able to function again. 

Finally, Sarah Jessica Parker was in town this week. I loved all the outfits she wore but this has to be my favorite, mostly because she is wearing a hair hat. Yes, that isn't all her hair, it is actually a hat made out of hair!
