Hey Peeps! What’s happened around here this week? A lot of celebration (for our one year wedding anniversary), some online shopping, late nights painting around the house and very busy days at work! All in all, it’s been a full-on week and it’s not going to be stopping until about 6pm on Sunday. This weekend I’m going to be helping out a friend at the Finders Keepers market in Sydney. While I’m going to be there to actually work, I’m really looking forward to checking out all the vendors and feeling the vibe of this type of market. It looks to be a bit higher end than the typical town centre market and I think there is going to be more than a few inspiring stalls that will have me wanting to empty my bank account! Anyway, before all the fun and madness begins below are a few moments and inspiring bits a pieces from the week that was. I hope you all enjoy your weekend, if you happen to be in town stop by the markets!
Bathers’ Pavilion – Is where it all happened last year, so we thought it only fitting that going back to the scene of the crime would be a perfect way to celebrate. I absolutely love it here, the perfect spot for a relaxed breakfast or special dinner – it’s casual, but elegant. The food is divine, delicate and perfectly balanced. The architecture is timeless and to top it all off, Bather’s is nestled in our of my favourite pockets of Sydney – Balmoral beach.
Just Dessert – So I just couldn’t not share this with you all! Strawberry mousse, raspberry meringue, lychee sorbet, Prosecco jelly, orange cream and a crystal rose petal – this was the most incredible dessert I have ever had. Yep, my mouth is (still) watering too.
Berry dreamy dessert
Time to wash – Now moving on from favourite moments, and back to favourite finds – how great is this laundry? We’re in the process of renovating ours and hopefully it’ll be just the inspiration required to stop the procrastinating and get on with the job!

A home in Paris – Herringbone timber floors, perfectly draped curtains, cream linen – this room ticks so many boxes! Follow the link (in the picture) for the full home tour, it’s just divine!
Mothers Day – And of course a special shout-out to all the mums out there – May this Sunday be everything you wish for in a day that’s dedicated just to you! Happy mothers day!
Celebrations at Home
Can you believe it’s already Friday again? After the week of weather we’ve had, the first half almost felt like it rolled into one day and here we are as quick as anything on the cusp of the weekend again! Not that I’m complaining – this weekend is going to be a pretty nice one with my Mum coming to stay, I’m really looking forward to some quality time with her and perhaps a little mother-daughter shopping! If you’re in Sydney I hope you have kept safe this week and have something lovely planned for the weekend! With all that being said, here are a few things that inspired me throughout this stormyweek….
1. ANZAC Biscuits – This time of year always calls for them and this year especially as we remember 100 years since the landing at Gallipoli in 1915 by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
2. Poppy Flowers – along the same lines, this iconic red flower is another beautiful way we remember the soldiers who fought for us in World War 1.
3. Bold patterned floors – with shaker cabinetry and stunning bevelled edge mirrors…

4. The Painted Ladies of San Francisco – We’re visiting San Francisco in August so with all the rainy weather, dreaming of these beauties has been an instant pick-me-up!
This is not new
5. The perfect reading nook for rainy days – I actually think I could live in this little corner!
Nothing makes me smile more than knowing the weekend is right around the corner, and even better since this week’s journey has been a little shorter! I hope you all have something fun planned for the weekend, whether it’s staying in or having a fun night out. Tonight, the hubby and I are driving down to Canberra for one of my good friends Hen’s party (we’ll that’s what I’ll be doing – the hubby will be in his element helping a friend fix a few things around her house). But before we hit the road, here are a few things that warmed up my week…
Raw &Natural textures in the kitchen
Luxe interiors + design
A reminder to be pretty on the inside too…
Soft & sheer fabric layering…
Blush with copper & grey
Autumn cocktails to warm the soul…
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week. On Wednesday I had my wisdom teeth removed, so have been a little sore and off work for the back half of this week. All the same, I’m glad it’s friday! This weekend we have the whole family coming around for lunch so we’ll be having lots of fun getting everything together for that. But before I get too deep in planning and prepping, below are a few things that have kept me distracted from the pain this week…
Hanging indoor plants
Get away style
The beach – any beach will do, but this one looks perfect – Noosa
White on white
Bathrooms with Persian Rugs
It’s that time of the week again – time to kick of your heels and enjoy the next couple of days any way you please. There is something magical about Fridays – whether it’s dark and stormy (like it is right now) or warm and sunny, they never fail to disappoint. So in the name of all that love and anticipation, below is my share of love and inspiration… Happy Friday everyone! xx
Pretty corals and a pop of pink
Style me pretty
Wildflowers but even more, what I loved most about this image was the caption: “Flowers appear on the rocks when there is faith that their small seed will be fruitful even in most unusual circumstances”
Between the Wood and the Water
A beautifully framed window
I scream, you scream…
And finally, those lips…
