A whale of a time...

I'm looking at getting one, or three of these gorgeous prints from Studio Tuesday for my little boy's nursery. They'll also be suitable for his room as he gets older which is a bonus!

All available at Studio Tuesday on Etsy :)

In our imaginary home...

Flowers, flowers, flowers...

I love having flowers in the house, they add a feminine and beautiful touch. I picked these up at the EQ markets yesterday where you can get the freshest most beautiful flowers - for a fraction of the florist shop cost!

Olli Ella Poppet collection

How gorgeous is this Olli Ella linen for bubs room? I'd love to get it for our little man's room... it is exactly our colours! We shall wait and see..

Whilst we're there I'll take one of their Mo-ma gliders for the nursery...

Starlight, starbright...

After searching high and low (on I've found the ideal mobile to hang above my little man's crib.

Dear baby,

Christmas wish list part one....

I can smell it in the air. Summer. Parties. Warmth. Christmas.

I love this time of year, with a passion. The end of the year with the 'end of year trimmings' makes me happy and excited and loved. Dinners with friends, Kris Kringles, parties with colleagues, classroom parties everything! I love it. I also love browsing blogs and finding fabulous wishlists of lovely things, decorations and Christmassy items and compiling my own. So here is number one!

An Eames moulded plastic rocker... for anywhere in the house. 

The ultimate yummy mummy nappy bag! Every yummy mummy needs a gorgeous nappy bag to tote around the gazillion of items that a bubbie needs. This one is perfect. Loads of pockets for bits and pices, the interior completely zips out for washing and cleaning (the ocd in me LOVES that) and it is super strong, hardy leather. 

Love it!

An il Tutto nappy bag  - Chiara in cream

Beach towels are often too-brightly coloured, too small, too big, too fat to pack in a bag. Then came along the Boathouse Beach Towel. Light weight, soft, large beachtowels designed by two Aussie mum's who know just what we need! I'll have two please - one in sky blue stripe and one in duck egg stripe.


A Cannes-esque beach maxi for brunch by the beach - that will fit over my growing bump!


And a breezy, summery, bright top for the super hot days in Sydney.

One day upon arrival...

Trawling through Etsy there are loads of gorgeous birth announcements avaliable. I love looking for ideas for the announcement of our little man. My gorgeous brother will ultimately design the announcement (in four+ months time!) but in the meantime these are some of my favourites...

Etsy Nursery finds #1....

I love Etsy and am looking for some gorgeous prints for our little one's room. The room theme will be baby blue, mint, grey and white. Here are a few I've found so far...
