Happy Monday!

And happy last day of winter too! Even though the weather wasn’t particularly great over the weekend, it was definitely beginning to feel more spring-like – almost enough to dig out some lighter clothes.

We had a busy weekend filled with great company and great food – what you always want, right? I hope you had a wonderful weekend too.

Here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

– The Rugby World Cup is just around the corner and the All Blacks are everywhere – including on Whittaker’s chocolate! If you’re looking for a sweet way to show your devotion to the team over the coming months then pick up one of their specially wrapped All Blacks blocks and slabs. You’ve got to admit, everything looks better in black.

– Before we went to Europe this year I finally laid my hands on a pair of Karen Walker’s ‘Number One‘ frames and couldn’t be more smitten with them. With a classic look, sturdy frame and beautiful case, there’s a reason people rave about these.

– With warmer weather on the horizon strawberries are already beginning to hit supermarket shelves (at a price!), so it won’t be long until we can enjoy beautiful summer treats packed with summer berries – like these roasted strawberries and cream popsicles. Yum!

This DIY circle chain mirror is not only quick to make but totally gorgeous too. Find out how to make it here.

– Need something cute to kick off your week? Then check out this short video of a penguin in Japan who wears a penguin backpack and walks into town each day to pick up fresh fish. Pretty cute!
