Cold Snap - cosy knits + jumpers

A cold snap has been forcast for this weekend and I'm definitely feeling the chill in the air!
I've put together a selection of cosy knits and jumpers. A perfect mix of ones to curl up at home in or to wear if you have to venture out in the cold.
My favourites for winter are always a grey knit or grey marle sweatshirt. I love the combination of grey and denim. But this winter I've been drawn to blush and pink. 
Do you have a favourite colour knit that's your go to?

Here are a few options to add to your winter wardrobe........

Room Tour - a sweet + pretty nursery

I came across the photos of this nursery the other day on The Glitter Guide and loved the statement wallpaper and the airy, girly feel.

It's all about the pink and the pretty! The nursery is also sophisticated enough for the room to be suitable from the newborn stage though to toddler age. 

Here is a browse through the nursery -

How are you? I feel like the weeks are flying by so fast that I haven't gotten a chance to share much of what I've been up to. So I thought I would pop up a post to show a snippet of life lately.......

Winter is the perfect time to stay inside and get crafty! I finished my cross stitch of our family.
I'm so happy with how it turned out. 

I felt like a little refresh around the house so I gave the bedroom a little rearrange.
Simple changes like the lamp shades recovered and some balloons above the bed gave the room a whole new look.

Our niece Coco was born and is just the cutest! We're all loving the baby cuddles.

I'm loving a green juice in winter, it makes me feel like I'm keeping germs and colds away. 
I love finding time to sit down and flick through the latest magazine.

I'm adding cosy touches to each room. 
My chair got a furry throw and cushion to warm up the winter months.

I love getting vouchers for my birthday or christmas presents. It extends the celebrations through out the year. Mum + I used my Christmas voucher last week and had a delicious lunch at Burnt Orange.

The weather was perfect over the weekend so we took the boys out to burn off some energey with their scooters, bikes and skateboards. I love Noah's new pose for the camera! 

It's been so lovely to sit out and enjoy the winter sun. The bougainvillea was in bloom at mum's house last weekend. Stunning!

Simon's 40th birthday is coming up next month so I am in the planning stages for his celebrations!

What have you been up to lately?

Raw Vanilla Cheesecake

I came across the company The Stable Co on Instagram and loved the idea of trying out some of their unbaked desserts. Cheesecake is a family favourite and I thought I would try out the raw version.

I loved that everything was pre measured and ready to go. The box contains all the ingredients for the cheesecake base. You also receive the filling mix you just have to add your own coconut oil (1/2 cup) lemon juice (2 lemons) and sweetener of your choice. (I went with honey) You can also add your own fruit to the mix if you like so I threw in a few blueberries.

After soaking the dates, I added them to the cheesecake base mix and whizzed it all up in my Vitamix. I then pressed the base into a lined cake tin and popped it into the freezer to chill.

While the base was chilling I made up the cheesecake filling (again mixing it in the Vitamix) poured it over the cheesecake base and put the cake back into the freezer for 3 hours. It was so simple.

Everyone loved it and the cake disappeared very quickly! I will definitely be trying it again and experimenting with different flavours for the filling. I've also got a box of Raw Caramel Slice that I'm dying to make up next.

Here are a few of Stable & Co's delicious creations -
