Console me

I am totally obsessed with a good console set up!
My one pet hate in our apartment is that they didn't put a power point near the front door.
 Meaning we can't have a lamp on our entry console table. 
I barely ever use the down lights, I'm a real lamp/ambient lighting girl - so candles it is at the front door!

Loving - Pip Boydell

Ok, so i saw some of her work a little while back when it was exhibited at Brisbane interiors institution Black & Spiro. 
Loved it...then it slipped my mind. A few days ago i came across Pip Boydell on Instagram & proceeded to look through every single one of her images. Boy oh boy am i in love! Delicate hand drawn & coloured watercolours of seemingly all my favourite things?! 
Hydrangeas, striped bikinis, a bottle of reef oil, slices of watermelon, a cut passionfruit & a shimmering fish! 
I think Pip has seen inside my head & illustrated it all!  Ok, I'm going to stop gushing like a crazy woman now :) 
Check out more of her work & buy prints of these slices of heaven at Pip Shining.

Sunday Breakast

Im really embracing this whole clean eating thing at the moment.
After around 8 weeks of eating (mostly) clean i can see the difference in my skin, eyes & energy levels.
The other night i had a diet soft drink with artificial sweeteners in it (after not having any for 2 months) & i broke out in a rash on my legs! 
I guess my body is getting used to all the 'good stuff' too! Interesting! Don't get me wrong, i still have a glass of wine here & there & today i think we are off to yum cha for lunch, but when I'm at home & as much as i can I'm trying to eat clean.

Thought id share one of my fav breakfasts at the moment (& what I'm eating right now!)
100g blueberries
25g rolled oats or natural (un toasted muesli)
Teaspoon of shredded or desiccated coconut
a couple of pecans or walnuts crushed up
100g of greek yoghurt (Evia from Harris Farm is my choice!)
Almond milk

2013 - this is your year

I have to say, this time of year always has me feeling all inspired - you know that warm fuzzy, 'the possibilities are endless' type of inspired? There are so many great bits & bobs floating around - i particularly liked this one i saw on Pinterest the other day.

Stone Sourcing

I've just been out to Bankstown to one of my stone suppliers to look at potential slabs for a kitchen I'm doing at the moment.
Wow there were some amazing pieces of marble out there! Took a few snaps to share :)

My favourite - Calacutta marble 

Check out this amazing Onyx
not what i was looking for but i had to take a photo of it it was so beautiful!

After the stone expedition, i met my hubby (who is a policeman out there) for lunch at An Restaurant for some to die for Pho - if you like Vietnamese food, Bankstown is the place to be!
