Caitlin Wilson's home

I seem to be spending a lot of time packing & preparing for our trip and so
I haven't had the time to blog. However I have had the time to 
quickly read a few favourite blogs.
I spotted some extra pics of Caitlin Wilson's home on Design Sponge 
(a bit late posting) and they are fabulous!
I especially love the blackboard wall with frames.

I love the mint green Caitlin has used in her daughter's bedroom!

New York, New York

We are off to New York for a holiday in a few weeks
& I absolutely can't wait. I have wanted to visit this city 
for forever and I can't believe my husband has agreed to it!! 
We are taking our little person, so the pace will be a little slower 
than our previous overseas holidays, but nevertheless 
I will be pounding those pavements taking in as
many sights as I can. 

If you have been to New York, I would love to know what
your favourite places, restaurants or things to do are?
Thankyou x

The Weekend

I'm packing for a weekend at the coast! So looking forward to dipping 
my toes in the water and taking the little person for a splash too! Have a lovely weekend!

A variation on gold polkadots, but amazing none the less!
How pretty is this monogrammed card from Sugar Paper

Black and White Photo Walls

I love black and white photography, so a black & white photo wall 
always catches my attention. I am thinking of doing one in our place.
Here is some inspiration...

I love the three in a row!

All images via Pinterest

I'm partial to black frames and using all different types of frames! 
I'll be sure to post some pics when it is underway!

A Baby Shower

Having finally recovered from the flu I wanted to share some photos from my sister's baby shower!
My number 2 (there are 5 girls in my family) sister, is expecting her first baby - A Boy,
at the end of this month. We set about creating a lovely brunch for her family & friends
to celebrate the little man that will soon make his arrival. I hope you enjoy!

And the outdoor area - a fabulous space for a party. Enjoy!

You can see the rest of images here.

Spring is in the air...

Today was a beautiful winter's day, with Spring saying 
'i'm just around the corner', and I can't wait!

I'm dreaming of cute polkadot skirts

Sweet little bowed sandals and pretty painted toes

Relaxing beachside in a cute cossie....must eat less cake!

And with all that dreaming, I purchased these sweet blooms.
The goal is to keep them alive until spring!

Have a fabulous weekend!
