Goodness me, could this incredibly gorgeous wedding featured on Smitten Mag be any more wonderful! Everything is just so pretty, relaxed and incredibly inviting – plus how cute is the sweet flower girl and the gorgeous pup and floral collar, I adore that even the paper goods had little puppy prints on them, it’s just so perfect! I could gush on forever about this lovely wedding, but I’m going to let the pictures tell the story – I’d love to hear what your favourite part of the day is. x

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was filled with meeting the very lovely Natalie Dent for a hair and make up trial for amazing friend Emily, before celebrating the night away with her and some very gorgeous ladies at her hens night and of course a little baking – it was the perfect weekend! I often find that after I bake cakes like my pretty Ombre Tinkerbell Cake I crave making something simple and incredibly delicious, plus my hubby needed a birthday cake for some lucky work mates so it was perfect! This Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip cake is so divine, I promise that it will be your go to cake in no time at all! x

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had the most wonderful weekend and of course spoilt your gorgeous Mama for Mothers Day! We had a really lazy but productive weekend after a week away, it was perfect – plus a little lazy Sunday afternoon is wonderful while it’s a little chilly outside. My gorgeous Mother-in-law gave me this delicious blondie recipe years ago, I’ve made it more times that I can remember – it’s just so good!! Her recipe calls for macadamia nuts but I didn’t have any so I added in pistachio nuts and crystallised ginger – either way this recipe is absolutely incredible and so quick to make I promise it will be your go to treat in no time! x

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week so far. So yesterday I shared the sweetest Mothers Day table setting – today is all about gorgeous gifts for your incredible Mama! I’ve always found giving gifts to my Mum a little tricky, as I feel that whatever I give it would never be enough to thank her for everything that she’s done! But all Mama’s deserve something beautiful, be it a delicious cup of tea while wearing sparkly slippers or a subscription to endless goodies by the gorgeous Sample Bar (you might remember the incredible Mothers Day parcel I received a little while ago – I can now share what’s inside!!) either way no matter what you give your Mama this Mothers Day, she is going to love it! xo
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
Oh my goodness, I’m so incredibly honoured to introduce you to one very talented lady, she’s part owner of the beautiful The Little Details and has just started her own styling business called Blackbird - the absolutely gorgeous Gem! A while ago Gem and I caught up through a gorgeous mutual friend of ours Coralee, over tea and chocolate covered raspberries and got chatting about styling, home decor and how to shop for your body shape – she completely floored Coralee and I with her knowledge of how an outfit works, what doesn’t and what will suit your beautiful body the best!
It took Gem and I no time at all to think of ways that we could work together, and it naturally turned to closet styling. I’ve always been a huge fan of a beautiful styled closet and ‘effortless day to day style’ – I wouldn’t say that my style is that bad, but like everyone I find it so easy to get into a ‘comfy style rut’. So I invited Gem over last week to have a peek at my closet and give me a little style make over, her eye for detail and getting the perfect line on your body is incredible! Plus there really is nothing like a fresh set of eyes, and style, to help give you a little boost. We’ve only just started, but we will be covering everything from Fashion Personality, Body Analysis, Textures & Patterns, Wardrobe Makeover, how to take two staple pieces turn it into 5 outfits and many other wonderful tips – Gem will be generously posting once a week on Made From Scratch, but of course if you’re after a personal style makeover be sure to get in touch with her, I promise you wont regret it! I can’t wait to share what we have planned, be sure to have a look at her blog Blackbird today about our exciting collaboration! x
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend – how incredible is the weather at the moment, you wouldn’t believe that it’s almost winter with how warm it is! Something very exciting happened in our home over the weekend, after three years of trying to decide on a couch to get we finally found our dream one from Freedom – and it’s perfect!! So now I’m on a little mission to decorate our lovely new lounge room with gorgeous cushions, throws and of course a little humour – how incredibly gorgeous is the dinosaur bookend! We absolutely adore simple white and grey tonnes as a base for everything – but of course I love injecting shocking bursts of colour into the mix, I can’t wait to wander around Sydney this week and pick up a few new goodies for our lounge. x
