Noosa Holiday!

Ben & I are off to Noosa today for a week! I cant wait! 
Not only is it 14 years since I've been there {the last time was schoolies.Won't be sharing any of those memories with the husband haha}, but we are meeting up with some friends we met in France last year on our cycling trip which will be so much fun! 
Plus we are driving up there & lets face it a road trip is kinda fun - especially if you get to stop in Byron for the night!
If anyone has any recommendations for restaurants, shops to check out or things to do i, all ears.
We are staying in an apartment up near the national park so looking forward to some ncie walks in the park & swims at little cove!.
Catch you all in a week or so!

Sass & Bide Resort 2013

Its no secret i am a MASSIVE Sass & Bide fan.
If there was one label i could live in for the rest of my days S & B would be it!
While in hospital after having my appendix out {in a painkiller haze} i even managed to have a little online spree in the middle of the night. Needless to say my husband was quite confused when, while i was still in hospital, sass & bide boxes started arriving at our apartment! 
Their packaging when you order on line is divine too by the way!
Loving these latest Resort 2013 campaign images featuring Heidi Middleton & her daughters!

Our Kilimanjaro Expedition Documentary!

A few months back i was the Australian member of a team of 12 Type 1 Diabetics to go to Africa to climb mount Kilimanjaro. 
We hope to inspire others with Diabetes, other illnesses or indeed no medical issues, to get out there & have a go! 
We had a camera crew with us & this was the film they made about the expedition
It was released today for World Diabetes Day. 
Hope you enjoy {and get a laugh out of how terrible i look!}

Makeover your desk with TYPO

I dont know about you but I love Typo! It's rather hard to go in there & come out empty handed! 
Something else i love is a great workspace!
So when Typo asked if i would like to take part in their Desk Rescue Campaign it was a no-brainer! Um, YES!!!
Yes, you heard it folks, Typo are giving away 3 'Desk Rescue Packs' worth over $600 each!
Its really simple to enter, just head over to their Facebook page and upload a photo of your tragic looking desk! 

Let me inspire you with my own 'Desk Rescue'
My workspace was looking a bit lacklustre....However a trip to Typo has fixed all that! 
Behold my new desk space! Its all in the details, so let me take you on a tour!

First up, what you cant see off to the left is my new friend & the gorgeous magnetic baroque white board.
Ive been loving working at night with the Hydrangea lanterns on! 

I am a bit old school & like to send hand written cards. 
I filled the mail holder with a variety of Birthday & Thank you cards - always good to have a few on hand! 
How cute is the OMG gold foil card
Im also a bit of a bandit for colour co-ordinated stationary (did someone say OCD?) 
I used a milk bottle to fill with pencils & pens & grabbed a 'Morning Cup' full of tiffany blue pins, paper & bulldog clips! 

Some tunes on a cute radio and a cup of tea from a pretty teacup always makes working more pleasurable! 
Ive been using the little gold toadstool to store my USB sticks that always tend to go missing!

Then just for something different, I created a corner as a wrapping station.
Its aways handy to have paper, some cute cards & ribbon or twine on hand - especially with Christmas approaching.
In my opinion the wrapping is as important as the gift inside {i spend far to much time on wrapping}! 
And of course, given my obsession with all things French, i can see a bit of a theme developing here! 
Hello awesome Eiffel tower scissors!!!
I've filled a vase with ribbon, twine & gift tags, & used some stamps to decorate envelopes!
The gorgeous gold faceted vase is also actually a pen holder!

And last but not least I think its always nice to have fresh flowers on your desk
I used typo's skull pen holder as a vase! Loving their super cool 'Book of Skulls' too!

Big thanks to Natasha Mulhall Photography for the beautiful images!

Lana Del Ray - Shameless girl crush!

I never tire of listening to the 'Born to Die'  - I listen to it while i work, drive & run!
And i admit i have a little girl crush on Lana del Ray... she is as cool as her music in my opinion!
Hello old Hollywood glamour!

Happy Cup Day!

Happy Melbourne Cup Day! Are you up to anything today to celebrate?
I used to work in an office where we didn't do anything aside from listen to the radio for the 3mins it was on!
Now that i work for myself my husband & i go out for lunch & to watch the race somewhere. 
{although the year before last i was on a building site with all the tradies listening to the radio haha}
Have a great day whatever you are up to & good luck if you place a bet!

Vegetable Patch

I love gardening.
There is something so satisfying seeing something you have planted grow. A few weeks ago i went to an event hosted by Jamie Durie & we were all given a packet of coriander seeds to take home. Last weekend i planted them in pot we had free & what do you know, yesterday it was full of green spouts! My excitement was somewhat childlike i suspect ;)
I also have a pack of seeds for baby tomatoes so they'll be finding a spot this weekend! We grow rosemary, mint, oregano, chives & have a bay tree - one day i would love to have a big vegggie garden where we can grow as much of our food as possible!
