Happy Friday everyone, how lovely are short weeks and long weekends, I think they should be compulsory! Can anyone else believe that it’s already February, how did that happen, although my hubby did remind me that it’s my birthday this month, so that’s very very exciting! I hope that everyone has a fantastic weekend planned and enjoys pouring over this weeks stunning and oh so bright Weekly Roundup from Toodles Noodles – I’m a little smitten with the necklace and boat shoes, they’re the perfect summer accessories! x
What a beautiful summer New Zealand has been experiencing these past few weeks! I don’t think I’ve had this kind of heat and clear blue skies in years – and am loving it!
One of the great things about living in Auckland compared to Wellington is that people love to wear colour – it reminds me of when I moved from San Francisco to Los Angeles. You go from an all black wardrobe to an assortment of brights and patterns - something this designer loves! One can’t help but feel vibrant and happy when surrounded by brights!
A lot of new things have been buzzing in the studio this past week! We released our latest addition to the shop: baking decorations! Here you can find cake and cupcake toppers in all our designs. And don’t forget, just like with any of our work – have something in mind but don’t see it online – let us know and we can custom make it!
We’re also working furisouly away getting ready for the New Zealand Gift and Homeware Fair - our first trade show! Not to mention working on two new products to be released soon and a few markets coming up as well! All to be released in detail soon..!
Now enough talking and onto link sharing:
1. Vibrant streamers and pom poms light up this barn in a heart felt Main wedding.
2. Loving the typography treatment on this poster by Luke Williams.
3. Gluten free has never looked so good - beautiful packaging by Nancy Hope.
4. In love with this hand painted flower garland cake topper - what attention to detail!
5. We found this shop earlier this week on Etsy and fell in LOVE – everything is just amazing!
6. Rhubarb Ice Cream with Oatmeal Shortbread, don’t mind if we do.
7. J.Crew has come out with a new line of boat shoes - I’ll take one in every colour and pattern please.
I hope you all have a great weekend and stay tuned for more announcements and February’s wallpapers! x
Oh my, could this styled shoot by Grey Likes Weddings be any more perfect! I love the idea of your beautiful bridesmaids wearing bright dresses with gorgeous statement necklaces, it’s stunning! I could gush on forever about this shoot, to me it’s everything a wedding should be, fun, bright and wonderfully thoughtful – I have to admit I’m a little obsessed about the pineapple invites and oh so sweet table setting, it’s too perfect for words! x

I adore the summer holidays, it’s the perfect time to relax, catch up with family and friends and of course take lots of afternoon naps after eating and drinking so much on Christmas Day! We had a lovely time away in Wellington, but it’s so so lovely to be back home and to potter around the house and garden while the weather is warm – hehe I’m kind of in love with our little veggie garden to be, I can’t wait to see how it grows over the summer months! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful break so far, I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to – but for now, enjoy this absolutely perfect summery Weekly Roundup from the wonderful Toodles Noodles. x
To all my readers in the southern hemisphere - Happy Summer everyone! As you may have read from my previous post – the weather here in Auckland has been a bit pants but as of tomorrow we’re supposed to experience sun for a whole week! I’m getting quite excited about the prospect of going to the beach, exploring waterfalls, going on walks – oh the possibilities!
Yesterday we went strawberry picking – my first time berry picking! I had such a blast even though it was a bit drizzly out and we left the fields with 4.2kg worth of delicious, ruby red strawberries! In hindsight that may have been a bit of overkill but we had a blast doing it and now have heaps of berries for our morning smoothies – win win!
So with all this excitement of summer I decided to make this weekly roundup a bright and colourful one! I hope you’re all having a great holiday!
1. Stunning single Marbella Hammock from Citta Design – want.
3. I’ll take two margaritas please!
4. Protection from the sun is important down here – this stylish hat is available at Witchery.
5. You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! This beautifully packaged organic ice cream picked up a silver award at the Best Awards this year.
6. You can’t beat a good beach towel – Country Road has a great range on sale now!
I sure do hope you are all enjoying some delicious sun and enjoying the holidays with those close to you! x
Oh my, I am quite excited about today’s post – I’m in love with how bright and cheerful is it! I’m so very honoured to be featuring the beautiful Style Tail of Brisbane’s Eastern Suburbs featured in the impossible gorgeous new issue of Adore Home Magazine - where if you flick to page 70 you can read all about Leesa Curtain’s lovely morning of Christmas shopping at Espial, Coming up Roses and Green Grass! Each shop is just as wonderful as the next and fill to the brim of stunning gift ideas for that someone special (hehe or yourself) this Christmas! x
Every year the very talented and lovely Anna Spiro of store Black & Spiro dresses up her shop windows with the most beautiful and ‘out of the box’ Christmas window displays – you can read all about it in the latest issue of Adore Home Magazine! I love how bright and fresh it is without being too ‘Christmasy’ – it’s perfect! There are so many gorgeous items that your eye falls upon, I’m quite smitten with the cushions and pineapple accents, I couldn’t think of a more beautiful way to enter Anna’s gorgeous store – which is at the top of my ‘must visit list’ when I go back to Brisbane. x
Happy Monday everyone, I hope that you all had a lovely and safe weekend and weren’t too affected by the very windy and stormy weather that we’ve been having. A while ago Ben and I decided to not book anything in for our weekend just gone so that we could have a good old fashioned clean up around the house – we even hired a 9 cubic meter skip that we managed to fill in less than two hours! It was amazing to see just how much stuff we had lying around the house, everything from left over wood from renovations, rotten veggie garden wood to a whole lot of rubbish under the house left over from the previous owner! Our power then went our for over four hours so it was the perfect excuse to go through all the cupboards in every room and tidy things up – it’s honestly the best feeling ever and our home feels so much ‘lighter’! I’d love to hear what you got up to over the weekend. xo
