 With Spring well and truly here I’ve been craving beautiful bright pops of colour, delicate pastels, neutrals and touches of gold – Spring really is such a wonderful time of the year where you’re able to shake off the darker hues and layers from Winter and enjoy that sun kissed feeling that the warmer weather brings. Here are a few of my favourite Spring finds to brighten your day, or of course add to your wish list for Christmas – I can’t wait for all of the Spring and Summer festivities to begin, I’ve a feeling it’s going to be the best Summer yet! x

HONEYCOMB GARLAND by Oh Happy Day

Party Mix by Eat Drink Chic

With spring hopefully just around the corner I’m craving bright pops of colour and of course waiting patiently for all the wonderful lazy summer parties that the warmer weather brings. I stumbled upon this absolutely stunning dessert table by Oh Happy Day she also shows you how to create your very own honeycomb garland – how lovely is that is that? Of course, no party is complete without a gorgeous goodie bag and this beautiful Party Mix by the lovely Eat Drink Chic really is too perfect for words! x

I’m so excited to share this incredible Bridal Shower that was featured on the stunning Hello May recently. From the delicious cakes and treats, macaron towers, little moss bunnies, wreath DIY’s, recipe card favours and the most perfect table settings and venue,  this would be such a wonderful shower to throw for a beautiful bride to be! I’m a little in love with the pink flamingo on the front porch – it’s just so gorgeous! x

Superette Space Oh, I’m beyond honoured and so excited to share the most stunning new lifestyle shop in Auckland – the beautiful new Superette Space! I’ve been a huge fan of Superette fashion for such a long time so I, like everyone, was giddy with exciting when they announced the expansion of their already beautiful shop to house an incredible selection of lifestyle and home products. The new Superette Space was beautifully styled by the hugely talented Claire from One Lovely Day, her eye to detail is just amazing – plus how gorgeous are the maple trees placed around the shop that will continue to drop their leaves throughout the winter months, it’s heavenly! If you haven’t had the chance to visit their new store yet, you simply must, it’s so beautiful and I promise you won’t leave empty handed – but if you can’t make it in person, you can also buy everything online, how lovely is that?! x

Well yesterday, winter arrived in all it’s hailing glory! And I don’t know about you but all I really wanted to do was to bundle up and go hibernate. This may lead you to believe that I dislike winter, but in fact it is quite the opposite.  I am fan. But I am all about being prepared. I love the thick layers of winter, knits and coats, wools and heavy delicious fabrics. yum. So rug up and get shopping from the comfort of your warm little home, because Winter is coming. ( shameless Game of Thrones reference. Thank you. )

Til next time.

Mothers-Day-Tablescape-Setting- Aw, with Mother’s Day this weekend it’s the perfect time to organise something special for your incredible Mama! I’m a little in love with this incredibly elegant yet simple table setting styled by the lovely Caitlin Moran for Glitter Guide - the soft gold and green touches are perfection, as is the very sweet name tag with a sprig leaves from the flowers. This weekend really is the time to spoil our wonderful Mama’s for everything they’ve done for us, I’ll be sending all my love to mine as she’s lucky enough to be spending Mothers Day in New York – how wonderful is that! x

I’ve had the true honour of being able to work along side Loni and help her out with selecting a few lovely products for the issue, it’s almost a dream come true! Be sure to have a peek at this gorgeous magazine while curled up with a warm cup of tea – it’s the perfect treat. x

Rimi & Jean's | Indian Wedding Rimi & Jean's | Indian Wedding Rimi & Jean's | Indian Wedding Ever since Ben and I traveled through India for a few months in 2008 I’ve always wanted to attend a traditional Indian wedding. I love everything about them, the colour, food, noise, decorations, jewel toned saris and of course the wonderful amount of tradition that runs through the many days of celebrations – I could imagine it being just like India it’s self, completely overwhelming yet incredible in every way! Perfectly captured by the very talented Celine Kim Photography, this amazing wedding really is a feast for the eyes and sense. x
