Speaking of weddings....

Oh I love this - had never seen this particular image before... I try really hard not to get caught up in things such as the royal wedding - its not like I know them personally!?! - but its too hard not to. Happy First Anniversary Wills and Kate. xox

They "do"

Ok - well I managed to narrow it down to 19 photos, but I could have easily posted all 180 and you would not have gotten bored. How gorgeous are these photos? I have been blessed to attend many weddings for beautiful friends, but there are some unions that really take your breath away. Ali and Justin's was just that. Having met in Year 6 at school, they realised they were 'more than friends'  in their 20's and their wedding day was a beautiful celebration. Two gorgeous people promising to spend the rest of their lives together - amen to that! Penny's Hill in the McLaren Vale was the scenic location and whilst the weather wasn't that favourable, it did not dampen anyone's spirits. Emma worked with them on styling concepts (her "mr and mrs' canvas was a wedding surprise for the couple, she did it from scratch - how fabulous) - Roy's photography = magic. Fun wedding transport - see Kombis4u

Many thanks to Ali and Justin for letting me share beautiful pics of their special day - taken by Roy V photography.

Shop Pretties 'in situ'

How lovely is this image. My friend F pinned this on one of her pinterest boards and I thought those birdies looked familiar - we have them in the shop! Buy them here.

Burning Bright

Don't ask me how - but I manage to justify all my purchases while in the Philippines. It's either because you can't get it in Oz (HELLO kate spade, get your act together...) or its significantly cheaper there than at home. After living there for six month last year I managed to haul back a little stock pile of diptyque (didn't help my excess baggage situation, but sooooo worth it). Last week I 'treated' myself to a (malin + goetz) candle. "Otto" is what I settled on but their options were endless and wonderful - "dark rum", "tobacco", "absolute rose", "geranium leaf" and even "mojito" and "cannabis"
I had a little lunch soiree at my house last Sunday and 'otto' burned bright the whole time, delicious scent at at the end of the day it didn't even looked like it had been lit - a long lasting candle - I likey! x

Urban Outfitting your home

Boo for the odd sized images but we all know I don't know anything about computers and the Internet etc so I don't know how to make them bigger and all the same size. But stay with me..... I'm loving how more and more international brands are embracing international shipping, because it really ain't that hard (you hear me Kate Spade????) - enter "Urban Outfitters" - I couldn't fit into their hip gear if I starved myself for six months, and I'm a bit old for it anyway... BUT, I'm loving their quirky and cool 'apartment' home wares. Fabulous quilt covers,
Cute cushions
Fabulous pendant lighting at an awesome price- we are thinking this will be finding a home in my new living room.
Mix and match cutlery - fabulous and fun
Love these band aids - I'd love to blame my next paper cut (being an accountant is VERY dangerous) on a ninja fight.
Thank you Urban Outfitters for shipping to Australia - I know not everything is available to us (ie furniture) but its awesome all the same x

Best Dressed

Without doubt - best dressed at this years Logies. In J'Aton. Perfect use of Neon. Asher Keddie - love your work.

Domino, Domino....

"Quick Fixes' is out in the States, but how do we get our little paws on one in Australia? I've been asked via the blog and I say 'good question', I wonder that as well? - Short of asking our darling blogger friends in the States to send us one over, anyone know who we might be able to source it from in Australia? I've contacted mag nation - hopefully they can come up with the goods! xx

So much about the image above to love - but the beautiful Eira wants to know where she can get her hands on the gorgeous bird print on the far left. Can anyone help?? She is currently decorating her home and this will be a very welcome edition if we can get our hands on it! xx

With a little help from your friends....

I have fab friends. And on Sunday a few of us had a little soiree at the SFC to recognise my 33rd year. Emma super styled and I put on the food and drinkie-poos. Kate and Emma have captured it here and here. I think I've said it before - my frequent overseas travel has allowed me to set up a decent little spirits haul. Mojitos and Neroni's were had by all (Negorni's Pip style - with OJ, yum)- the whole reason I sought out the SFC was to have a big enough place to entertain. Its just me after all and 'the shanty' did me justice 99% of the time, and it was MUCH easier to clean.... I have good friends coming for Easter Saturday lunch and then special ladies for afternoon tea Easter Monday. The extra space to clean is definitely worth it.... xox

Dark and Stormy

I've engaged White and Wander in a 'official capacity' to help me decorate my lounge room. Inspired by these images, I think this gives you some idea of what I'm wanting..... excited??? This little SFC won't know what has hit it.... bring it on.

Brilliant Find

I've often talked about the mine field that is etsy - some absolutely stunning things, some absolute hideous things..... but this shop definitely fits in the 'absolutely stunning' category. Devon Baer Designs is a fabulous mix of classic design, gorgeous colour and lots of fun. I know where to head when I need an outfit for the next special event. And that necklace in the first image? - too late kids, Tessa bought it after I popped it on pinterest. Got to be quick my pretties!! xox
