See you in a week!

Hey peeps. Off to a cramped caravan (that is way not as pretty as this one) with some great friends  for a week then finishing off with a marquee wedding on Sat. Good times peeps. I'll miss you. x

Oh and don't go doing anything i wouldn't do.

This weekend was cherrytastic. We literally picked these zillion babies from a friends tree.
And i spent over an hour on Sunday de pipping them to make a crumble. Not pictured! Because my hands looked like i had murdered two Cherry trees with my bare hands and there is still stains in the sides of my nails. Any tips for getting out cherry stains?! The colour was awesome though. I'm going to channel the cherry vibe with some cherry coloured nail polish on Saturday to cover any remaining stain on the girls big night out.

Restaurant Decor

Went for a cheeky lunch this weekend at Zizzi's after a trip to see Toy Story 3 with the sproglets. How cute is this restaurant decor? Loving the orange and check out the flooring. Bang on trend!

Mr C didn't appreciate me taking pics on my iphone whilst in there though. Can you tell?

I have to share this with you

I hate to jump on the bandwagon and copycat posts and stuff but sometimes you just gotta share for the greater good of mankind. Today two posts i particularly LOVED. Check them out for yourself.

1.Desire to Inspire post on Stylist Maxine Brady. Seriously this room is bananas. Seriously speechless (in a good way!)

2. The City Sage post on Reese Witherspoon - one of my all time fav women ever.

So chic and casual at the same time. Thanks for sharing bloggers!

PS. Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY. Closes Sunday. xx


Sydneysider Louise Bell runs this beautiful blog and its sister online store selling her uber popular Moroccan pouffes and a whole host of delectable fanciful things. Her blog is daily filled with the most gorgeous colours, fashion, interiors and inspiration. I'm sure if you didn't already know her, she will probably become one of your favourite bloggers real soon!

And it probably won't come as a massive surprise to say her husband is pretty talented too. Just a mere architect who designed their entire house. Nice bathroom Mr. B!

She's a cutie huh?

And she's on sale at Habitat. Darn you budget!


And i know i'm probably a bit late on this one but i went to see Eclipse last night with the girls. Apart from having to control myself from pinching my sister in the next seat at the really exciting bits all i have to say is... team Jacob.

Do you really have to ask?

P.S I know he's like well only just an adult but what the hell!

Black white, pink and yellow...seriously my favourite colours. OOh and turquoise. What's not to like?!

Sneak Peek: My Home Tour

I think one of the my favourite things on the blogs i read is the home tours. Up until now i have been reluctant to show my home because it is not finished. It's in a mid state. We moved in January of this year and really the house needed very little work overall but it is not necessarily how i would like it.

Hey ho. Time and money folks. i have reached 100 posts (enter my giveaway) i have decided to get ready to photograph and do a house tour sometime in August for you, before i go and change it and make it even more fabulous. You have probably picked up some of what it looks like from previous posts but here's a sneaky peek if not.

And remember i'm not called procrastination mama for nothing, but i promise to post it sometime in August!! xx
