Happy Monday!

After a week battling a dreadful cold, this weekend was spent nestled up at home watching far too much TV and planning all kinds of adventures for our upcoming trip to Europe (turning 26 in Champagne, France? Yes, please!). Luckily I’m not feeling much better, am all TV’d out and am feeling very excited about our impending trip – seven weeks and counting.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are looking forward to the week ahead – let’s be honest, with The Bachelor finale and Pitch Perfect 2 hitting cinemas, it’s a pretty exciting week! Here are five things to get your week off to an even better start…

Happy Monday!

When you’re busy with work and general life it can be easy to forget just how much fun it is to spend a night with the girls. I was lucky enough to head along to the hens party for one of my best friends from uni on Saturday and had such a wonderful time – think games, drinks and burlesque dancing!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend too and have something lovely planned for the upcoming long weekend. Here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

Wasn’t it wonderful having another short week? The weekend felt as though it absolutely whizzed around. After a wonderful trip to the Hawkes Bay over Easter and a nice short week back at work, I’m feeling rested, relaxed and ready to get busy with a few projects – stay tuned!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and are all ready for the week ahead – here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

Homemade Easter bundles

Easter-bundles-1

Every year Kevin and I try to do something a little different when we gift out Easter eggs. After all, Easter only comes around once a year so you might as well make the most of it, right?

While cellophane, ribbon and baskets are usually my best friends come Easter time, this year I decided to try something a little different and use preserving jars and mason jar mugs to create cute little Easter bundles for friends and family – and they turned out pretty darn cute!

Happy Monday!

What an absolutely stunning autumn weekend, huh? It’s so lovely having a bit of reprieve from those stifling summer days, without needing to rug up too much – or hide inside from the winter rain.

I had a busy weekend working on some new twists on old favourite recipes just in time for Easter. While I don’t want to give away too much, keep an eye on the blog on Wednesday if you liked the Pineapple Lump Fudge I shared last year. Yip, I’m giving that recipe an Easter-y twist!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend too and are rearing to get into the week ahead. Here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

EziBuy’s latest Home collection is packed with gorgeous on-trend items that make it easy to breathe a bit of life into your home just in time for the chillier months – I couldn’t believe I was flicking through an EziBuy catalogue when I saw their new season pieces.

Happy Monday!

Phew – life has definitely been busy around here the past couple of weeks. As you can see, the gorgeous new-look for the site that I’ve been working pretty much all year is finally up and running – I hope you love it as much as I do.

Other than tapping away at the computer, I’ve been busy planning our trip to New York and Europe later this year (more about that later) and getting pottering around in the garden. It’s been a busy month!

I hope you have all had a wonderful couple of weeks – here are five things to get your week off to a great start…
