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.
What are you up to today?

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.

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

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?
