Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a beautiful weekend – isn’t it lovely now the weather is getting just a little warmer? I swear summer will be here before we know it!

We had a lovely weekend catching up with friends and enjoying plenty of time relaxing at home – the first chance we’ve had to do that since returning from holiday. And you know what? It was perfect.

Here are five things to get your week off to a great start – including a chance to win a copy of LeeAnn Yare’s gorgeous book, Rooms to Love

– Let’s kick things off with this video of a hamster having the best day ever at Disney World, complete with miniature rides, food and treats. Too much cuteness in one video!

– I’m a bit of a magpie and LOVE anything shiny, and these gorgeous glitter resin teaspoons are no exception. Yip, glitter teaspoons.

– Speaking of shiny, I can’t wait to pick up a couple of these gorgeous brass cactus planters soon – they even come with a plant so you don’t need to do a thing!

– With summer not too far away (yeah, I’m rounding forward quite a bit) I’m beginning to hunt around for some new summer dresses. This beautiful cosmic print dress is a current fav – check out the colours!

– Shore City’s gorgeous Art of Cake exhibition has officially kicked off again and the creations from this year’s finalists are truly stunning – we have some seriously talented cakers in Auckland! Each of the five finalists’ creations were inspired by mood boards created by fashion and design personalities, including the amazing LeeAnn Yare. If you’re in Auckland, be sure to pop into Shore City in Takapuna this week and check out the cakes yourself. If you spend $5 in the mall you can vote for your favourite and be in to win a whole bunch of awesome prizes – good, huh?


I have a copy of LeeAnn Yare’s book, Rooms to Love, to giveaway to one lucky reader! To enter, simply let me know which of the five cakes (above) you love the most.
