What's that now - a pet Lion

Anyone who knows me knows how much I spoil our dog Harley. Yes he has cuddles in bed, cuddles on the couch, sticks his head in the fridge to make sure everything is still fresh, BUT he is a dog. This family below is taking things to the extreme, this Lion get's treated like Harley, but seriously, how could you not, he looks so cuddly. This is one content, not to mention super spoilt Lion.

Hope you enjoyed these images as much as I did.

The Wheatfield

I recently came accross these most stunningly beautiful illustrations - The Wheatfield by Katie Daisy. Today I am particularly relating to the top illustration as it has rained continuously for the last 2 days! Isn't it supposed to still be summer, at least for 2 more days.

Which is your favorite?

Wedded bliss

Yesterday we went to the most stunning wedding. Even though the wedding was in a garden and the temperature was 38c and we all nearly melted, it was still such a special day with a stunning bride and a very nervous groom.

I was so impressed with their wedding cake (below), a new take on cheesecake. How beautiful is this cake and super tasty too.

The gorgeous long tables at the reception - oh so pretty.

Was such a beautiful wedding.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend.

Artful Friday

I recently came across the very talented Lizzy Stewart's artwork, more can be found here.
I think these pictures would look stunning framed in all white.


The weekend is finally here - hope you have a great one!

To scarf with love

I love scarves, I would wear them every day if I could. I was such a lucky girl at Christmas time and had the good fortune of being given a Hermes scarf. Although I haven't worn it much (insane I know) as I haven't really known how to wear it - until now...

Now I know the pictures below aren't really options for a silk scarf but they are too beautiful not to include dont you think?

Shingles, ouch!

  I'm so lucky that most people I work with are travelling today as I was running so late to get myself out of the house this morning, so casual outfit - you bet. I know right - why did I stop to take a photo of myself... And then to throw another rather big spanner into the works, my poor husband has just come down with the shingles so trying to be a nice wife and make sure he is comfortable, poor boy.

I am going to a wedding on the weekend and need these shoes - it's going to be a fabulous summers day and these shoes would be ever so nice.

Ok so I don't know where the above shoes are from but any of the shoes below will get the job done.

1. 2 & 3

I think the last ones are my favorites - which do you prefer?

Shoes today - super cute clutch tomorrow and then I'm set. So organized and so unlike me, yes I'm proud! there will be no last minute trying on outfits, driving my husbane insance because I can't fine anything to wear.

Weekend snaps

Married for 3 years, how time flies. We went out to celebrate at Newmarket in St Kilda, my new favorite restaurant. Their roast chicken takes 48hrs of preparation and cooking time and is the most amazing roast chicken I have every eaten - yum!! 

Harls out on the town for a weekend coffee, isn't he handsome.

My Tory Burch flats - similar here

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

Be my Valentine...

Hope you have a lovely Valentines Day.

I am so hopeless at remembering special dates, yes even Valentine Day, I know its shameful. GK went to work super early this morning and it wasn't until he got there did he realise we forgot to wish each other a happy V Day!

Hair-raising Thursday

My go to hairstyle of late is to quickly wrap my hair up in a bun in under a minute then race out the door. Let's admit it - I really need to spend more time on my hair as this can be a little boring.

I have come across some really inspiring hair do's that I'm goint to adopt this year - what do you think?

Don't know if I have the skills to create the below do - but it is super cute.

Obviously will be saving this one up for winter - such a great look and I love that you can look this great whilst having a bad hair day.

When all else fails - a la natural is always best (sometimes)
Please do let me know what you think - would love to hear from you. Which hair style do you like best?

Need a little more glamour - who doesn't

Totally in love with Elie Saab's Spring 2012 collection. It's such a shame I have no events coming up that I could swan around in one these little beauties.


I recently bought Elie Saab's fragrance - have you sampled? Totally intoxicating - yum
As you can see I am a bit of an Elie Saab fan.
