Quite easily the most beautiful bedding I’ve stumbled upon in a very long time, take a peek at Hunting for George their home decor and bedding range is to die for! I’m off to decorate our bedroom in soft bold colours and warm neutrals tones – I think it’s the most perfect colour combo this season! Plus, with so many beautiful quilt sets to choose from, it’s now more than ok to have more than one set to update your room at a moments notice right? xo
You may have noticed a little exciting news over on Instagram lately – there is a very exciting new foodie community that the truly amazing Bianca from Sunday Folk has just started. It’s called What Folk Eat and the idea behind this lovely venture is to create a community of people who love to bake, cook and share delicious recipes with others – it can be any type of recipe, from a personal favourite, one that has been handed down, or something deliciously new! Bianca has also added the most wonderful touch to this already beautiful idea, once you’ve register here to be apart of What Folk Eat and she will partner you up with another foodie where you will then exchange parcels along with the recipe and anything else food related that you wish to send – anything from a cute cooking utensil to a beautiful tea towel. And then of course share your parcel and delicious new recipe on your Instagram account using the hashtag #whatfolkeat or blog.
I’m also beyond honoured to announce that I alongside the lovely Nia from Life & Co will be helping Bianca judge the recipes shared – for more information on this beautiful new community of people, be sure to take a peek at What Folk Eat to find out more, and of course sign up! We can’t wait to see all of your amazing recipes. x
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a lovely weekend – we had such a wonderfully relaxing and lazy weekend, we worked out it was the first weekend we didn’t have to be somewhere, paint something, or landscape something for the first time since the start of the year, it was bliss! We also decided that after such a busy start to the year we should take a little more time out to just enjoy things and slow down a little – and creating a little outdoor picnic in your back yard or favourite park is the easiest way to do that! It doesn’t have to be much, just a couple of comfy outdoor cushions, cute wooden cutlery, amazing food and of course your closest friends and family! It all sounds so perfect, I think I might have to plan a lazy autumn picnic for this weekend. x
A few years ago while we were living in England we celebrated Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day, I’d never heard of this magical day before and have been quietly celebrating it ever since – it’s just such a good idea! So in honour of the most delicious ‘holiday’ I thought I would whip up a batch of wonderfully simply French Crepes, and of course top these paper thin treats with a little Nutella and freeze dried strawberries! This delicious recipe is from the stunning collection of pancake recipes from Nutella, if your a fan have a peek, Happy Shrove Tuesday everyone! xo

I adore the blogging world, it is such a magical place full incredible talented people – I stumbled upon The Sauce a little while ago and have been completely smitten since. There is something so romantic and lovely about a illustrated food blog, you simply must take a peek at Emma’s work and of course blog, it’s beautiful! x
Summer and ice cream really do go hand in hand – it’s just so delicious, wonderfully refreshing and always a crowd pleaser. I’m struggling to bring myself to bake anything at the moment, mostly because it just seems weird to be baking on a warm summers day, plus there is something so wonderful about whipping up a dessert that takes no time at all to prepare. This stunning slice is one of those desserts, and of course there really is something so magical about paring classic Tip Top Hokey Pokey with vanilla infused grilled peaches – this simple dessert really is perfect for summer, and of course to whip up for a any last minute Waitangi Day celebrations tomorrow. x
