Happy Halloween! Decorations, Food and DIY.

Happy Halloween!
We've popped up a few decorations to celebrate :)

We're going to a Halloween party this afternoon and some trick or treating tonight.
The boys are very excited! 

There are so many cool ideas on Pinterest for Halloween decorations and spooky food. One year I will do a party and use these ideas! Here are some of my favourites -

My decorations didn't cost a lot, all of it was from our local bargain shop.
You can get that spooky effect without spending a lot of money.

Have you decorated for Halloween?
Are you trick or treating?

My Fashion picks for the Spring Racing Carnival

The Melbourne Cup and other carnival days are coming up and talk has turned to the Fashion on the Field. 

It has been a couple of years since I have been to the races but I remember the fun of dressing up, having a couple of champagnes and a little flutter on the horses. It is a great day out.

I've put together a few of my favourite looks for this years Spring Carnival.

You can't go wrong with classic b&w, this outfit would be perfect for Derby Day. You can find everything in the pic here

If you are after something with a little more colour, this outfit is lots of fun with its pops of pink.

Dress from here, shoes from here, fascinator from here
This outfit is a little more simple. A headband instead of a hat/fascinator. All colour brought in with the cute clutch.

I loved these little tips about the best hairstyles to wear with a hat or fascinator. You can find them here

Myer always do fashion well for the Spring Carnival. Lots of options and inspiration here

Are you heading to the races or a Melbourne Cup lunch this year?
Do you prefer a hat or fascinator?

Sculptures by the Sea - Bondi 2014

We went for a walk at Bondi today and checked out the annual Sculptures by the Sea.

It was the perfect day for a seaside stroll with the sun shining, slight ocean breeze and not overly crowded.

We started at the Icebergs. I love that place!
 It always looks so beautiful and I can never resist taking a photo.

Here are a few(a lot!)snaps I took along the way.
If you want to go and check it out yourself, look away! ;)

A new addition this year was the pop up cafe by The Grounds set up amongst the sculptures. I thought it was a great idea as you could stop for a coffee or a drink along the week and added to the whole social vibe of the walk/art.

We only ever walk to Tamarama so I don't know if the sculptures continue? 

This is about the 4th year that we've been and some pieces are a bit similar to previous years but there is always one or two standouts. This year I loved the whale and the frying pan.

Have you been? What was your favourite sculpture?

Thinking about checking it out?

My favourite items for Summer Entertaining.

Now that we have had a few successive days of gorgeous sunny weather, my mind has started turning towards Summer entertaining.

Our house lends itself to Summer entertaining as the back of the house opens up into our covered outdoor lounge area, BBQ, backyard and pool. Everything flows and having people over seems easy.

Here are a few of my favourite things to have on hand for entertaining friends in the warmer weather.

1. Fun drinks tray by Kate Spade found here

2. Perfect Summery door mat. I need this!

3. Inflatable donut ring, a must have for the pool

4. A cute drink dispenser

5. A bright new take on a salad bowl

6. These headbands scream fun!

7. I love these fun molds for either ice or chocolates

8. A chic drinks trolley for a fab price
