Happy Australia Day

Wishing you all a wonderful Australia Day!

I couldn't resist making this "Iced Vovo" cake for morning tea.


It was too easy as I bought pre made sponges, made pink icing using Betty Crockers finest in a tub, popped on some jam and covered the whole cake with desiccated coconut.
Delicious!
What are you up to today?

Home Tour - Annika von Holdt

I stumbled across a photo of Annika's living room on Instagram this morning. 


I loved it and immediately wanted to see more of her home. When a photo of a room catches your eye there is always that curiosity to see whether the rest of the home lives up to the image.  

I think Annika's home does. Every room is beautiful.  It is stunning in it's simplicity.













I also love how she changes the look and mood of the room with a subtle change of the sofa cover.
So simple but so effective.  A truly gorgeous home.



Home and photos of Annika von Holdt.

What do you think?
Could you live with a muted colour palette? I really want to try a white floor one day!

Our Week - holiday edition | part 2

The holidays are still going strong around here.
 The days are still blending into each other and it takes a few moments to work out which day it is.
Here is a look at our week -

Lots of beach time, our Sunny Jim shelter is still a hit

I tried out a watermelon "cake" for afternoon tea, it was a bit of a novelty and the boys loved it!

I think I'm raising 3 fish, they are never out of the water

I received a gorgeous package in the mail from Milly and Eugene

It contained a colourful hand painted "sugar skull" that has found a spot on my bookcase

A friend brought me over the most beautiful hydrangeas from her garden. Aren't they pretty?!

Leisurely breakfasts are being enjoyed, I know this will all change in a week or so

More beach time

Relaxing with a magazine is a must most days

We  headed off for one last holiday away before school starts. With Noah just recently toilet trained, stopping to wee by the side of a road is a huge novelty for him!

Here in our favourite place for a week. Bliss! 
I'm putting together  a post on my favourite places in Byron Bay, coming soon x

How has your week been?
