Taking Ikea Living to a Whole New Level

3 guys, 1 store, these photos are hilarious!  Can you imagine some of the looks they must have gotten from other shoppers!  Love it!  Check out more of their comical snaps here!

Bestest Bunny Bookends

How flipping cute are these guys?  I spotted them at an adorable store over in Malvern, aptly named 'White Rabbit.'  I couldn't resist & I must admit they look darn fine on my bookcase!  Eeeee...!

Gotta Love a Wedding

Wow!  What a dress!  What a couple!  & as anticipated, Kate had barely left her hotel before Hubby here was fast asleep on the couch :)

May they live happily ever after!


What a Royal To Do


Before I settle down with my cup of tea & Rich Tea Digestive biscuit (how distinctly British of me), I thought I'd pay homage to some of the more obscure memorabilia I've seen dotted around.  How insane is that pizza?  I was supposed to be heading out to a super special 'Royal Wedding Party' this eve's but am laid up with a sprained ankle after a fall at netball last night :(  Instead I plan on making Hubby sit through the entire thing, what's the betting he shall be asleep in 5?

Can't wait to see the frock!

Dream a Little Dream...

Okay, so how much do I wish I was walking through this magical book archway in Lyon, France right now?  I could select a few enthralling titles from the bookstore within, take a slow meander down to the park with a flask, or sit at a local cafe & sip hot coffee whilst people watching!  How fun is it to dream? ...Especially when sat at your desk waiting for inspiration to hit!

Here's to a wonderful (& productive) week everybody xx

Royal Wedding Fever

It appears everywhere you look at the minute there's something about the upcoming Royal Wedding.  A friend sent me this video last week & I thought it was a hilarious spin on the occasion, can you imagine if it really happened?  I adore Camilla & Phillip's bottom bump & William's intro is gold!  The resemblances are uncanny :)  Enjoy!

It's a chilly Friday night here in Melbourne town & Autumn is in full swing.  Time is flying by & I can barely believe it's mid April already, Eeeep!  This week has been a blur of assignment writing & the usual hectic term life but here are a few wonderful's I've stumbled across of late:

Fun game idea that I seriously dig!

Horse Bike...for those of you, like myself, who have always dreamed of owning that pony :)

Possibly the only time that Cranky Pants can be cute!

I think I neeeeeeeed this super cute USB Key USB Key Drive.

...and finally, this awesome guide on how to make a dreamy lamp shade made from doily's!

Here's wishing you a super spesh weekend Chickadee's!

Discovering Birdy

So on listening to UK radio today my ears pricked up at this beautiful cover of Bon Iver's 'Skinny love.'  After a spot of research I discovered the singer is a talented little lady who goes by the stage name of Birdy, & at just 14 years old I think you'll agree she's pretty dam amazing!  Enjoy :)

Happy Weekend x

Happy Weekend Wonderfuls!

Despite having a mammoth To Do list at present it's been somewhat of an unproductive week in the life of me. Procrastination has been the name of my game & I just know it's going to come back & bite me :(  As a result I have vowed to work my little socks off this weekend, to make up for my sheer pantsness this week!  I'm out with the girlies tonight for a post Practicum dinner & have a brunch date planned on Sunday but other than that it's just me, my desk & a monster pile of assignments, Ugh!

What do you guys have planned for the weekend?  I hope it's full of sparkle whatever it is you get up to :)

Darling Egg Holders

How cute are these wooden egg holders from Hop & Peck?  They're almost too pretty to eat out of & would make an insanely cute Easter gift for somebody.  I hold fond memories of eating soft boiled eggs when I was a child.  My Mum used to let us draw faces on the shells after we'd finished and then turn them upside down & bash them with our spoons :)  

First spied over at the wonderful Eat Drink Chic!

Sweet Squirrelly Loving

I adore these little guys, they make me happy :)  I also figure that if Mark were to annoy me for any reason I could shuffle the female squirrel away from the love heart, as is the bottom picture.  Boys need us to spell it out for them sometimes, Ha!  Squirrels found here & spotted first via Design Sponge!


Wooden Wedding Stationary

(Images via Cards of Wood)

I absolutely adore the idea of having Wedding Save the Dates and Invitations printed on wood & was reminded of just how much after viewing a fabulous post on The Senses Five (via A Cup of Jo).  Unfortunately for our own wedding we struggled somewhat to find a supplier here in Australia & instead my designer friend Steph (of Wit Design) helped us in creating the same look.  We carefully selected the paper we printed on so that in actual fact the invites themselves almost felt wooden.  We were super happy with the results & felt that they reflected our light hearted and super fun approach to our big day.  Here's a slightly colour distorted version of our invites, they were more impressive in real life :) The calendar acted as the front & was intended for people to pop on their fridges/pinboards as a reminder, and the back had all of our details on.  I hope you like :)


Coffee Cozies

These handmade reusable Coffee Cozies are ingenious not to mention cute to the max!  They're perfect for protecting delicate fingers from hot drinks and means we can save the earth 1 cardboard sleeve at a time :)  I think I like the grey one with the red heart the best.  Check out the full range at The Cozy Project!

Hilariously Terrifying Nose Blowing

Woah!  So I know YouTube is chockers with hilariously cute baby videos these days but this little fella is too adorable not to share!  Not only are his giggles infatuating, his absolute shock horror at his Mum blowing her nose just cracks me up!  If you haven't seen already...Enjoy!


Let There Be Cake...

(Images via here, here, here)

...& aesthetically pleasing kids cake at that :)  How grrrrrreat is that Hungary Caterpillar cake?  It makes me happy just looking at it!  I hope by the time we make babies I shall have perfected my cake making skills to be able to create one of these master pieces, some how I highly doubt it!

Magical Maternity Book

I know of so many friends that have announced the exciting news of their pregnancies of late, I swear there must be something in the water :)  As much as babies aren't on the cards for Mark & myself for a good while yet, I can't help but swoooooon & daydream over this marvellous Maternity book as created by Johanna over at Hanna Mac Photography.  I can't think of a better way to record 9 months of growing a little person.   I loved their story & fabulous photos.  To view the full book in all its glory head here!
