Happy Friday everyone, I hope you have all had a lovely week and have survived the chilly winter weather so far! I’m beyond honoured to share this gorgeous 1st birthday that the very lovely and talented Mel from All the Frills styled for Caden’s 1st birthday party – perfectly captured by Sheera Gordon, this really is the most gorgeous birthday ever! From the delicious dessert table, refreshing drinks table, gorgeous little picnic spots and of course lots of games for the kiddies to keep busy, plus how lovely is the tree full of polaroids from the day of celebrating – everything really is just so perfect! You can see more of this gorgeous party here and here! Have a wonderful long weekend everyone, I hope you all have something nice planned. x
Oh goodness, is there anything more wonderful than a vanilla layer cake with delicious poppy seed specks? I made this lovely cake as part of the New Zealand Weddings shoot that I did a while ago, I love how rustic yet classic it is – perfect! I hope that everyone had a fantastic long weekend, how perfect was the weather?! I’d love to hear what you got up to – we had a lovely lazy weekend full of friends, bbq’s and lots of Spring cleaning. xo

Yay happy Friday everyone, how lovely is it that the weekend is upon us again – and not just any weekend a lovely long weekend! Do you have anything special planned or will you be taking it nice and easy? Oh I can’t quite believe that Valentines Day is approaching, how did that happen?! However I am quite smitten with this weeks gorgeous weekly roundup by Toodles Noodles, how incredibly stunning would a luxury picnic be – especially while sipping on pomegranate + vanilla vodka, oh my! Have a wonderful weekend everyone. x
Well it’s that time of the week again – time for our weekly roundup! It’s been quite a week around this neck of the woods.
We moved house and studio last weekend (leaving us without internet until yesterday….sigh), we were super lucky and won tickets for the Auckland Seafood Festival this weekend through Te Awa Winery, and had some lovely birthday celebrations out with friends and delicious cakes from the lovely Made From Scratch.
The shop also had a big week being featured in the Etsy Finds email with our Full of Hearts gift wrap, our Blue bird gift wrap making the front page and our Your My Superhero note cardsmade the new To & From Valentine’s Day Guide - all of which has left me feeling well – a bit lovely dovey!
With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought I might just theme up this week’s Weekly Roundup with a bit of a romantic feel. We also have heaps of gift tags, cards, prints all for that special day in our shop, so shop on by and have a nosey!
1. These sparkly hearts make the perfect accessory for that sharp blazer or pretty bun!
2. A sweet treat made with bittersweet chocolate is a direct line to my heart.
3. Is there anything better than a luxury picnic with the ones you love?
4. Cold never looked so cute with these leggings.
5. I sure do love a relaxing bath after a long stressful day!
6. Time to spruce up those cocktails…mmm… pomegranate…
I hope you all have had a great week and have fun plans for the weekend ahead! Until next time… x
Hello everyone, I hope that you had a glorious long weekend – even if the weather was terrible! I hosted a wonderful baking class for a Hen’s night, caught up with my lovely family and relaxed with my hubby, it was total bliss – I’d love to hear what you got up to or what yummy things you baked. I’m so excited to share the gorgeous new range from Hop & Peck, I’ve been a huge fan of their work for a while now, and I adore that they make chopping blocks in different shapes! It would be so sweet to have a few of them so that you could chop and dice depending on your mood, I’m a little smitten with the cupcake, bear and cheese board – they’re just so perfect! x

Hello everyone, I hope that you all had a fantastic weekend we had a lovely break over the long weekend but it’s so lovely getting back into the swing of things. I was so excited when I stumbled upon Letitia and Kristian’s beautiful 50′s themed wedding photographed by the lovely Feather and Stone. I honestly can’t get enough of the style of their wedding, I adore that they had some of their photos taken at the local swimming pool and served some oh so sweet treats for their guests, plus how amazing is her dress! You can click here to see more of their stunning wedding, I promise you will adore it! x
Happy Friday everyone – can anyone else believe that it is already June, where has the year gone! With winter now ‘officially’ here, I can’t think of a better time that to start potting in the kitchen and making a whole bunch of yummy things to nibble on during the colder months. I made the easiest Peanut Butter, Chocolate and Vanilla Muesli the other day and I been eating it with some generous servings of delicious Russian Fudge Yoghurt from The Collective – it’s amazing and would be so perfect for brunch or dessert over the long weekend. x
