bed time view

i'm a busy little beaver at the moment.
which means increased tiredness at the end of the day.
which means i do silly things like take accidental photos when i'm trying to set my alarm on my iphone.
thought i'd share it cause it looks so warm and inviting.
might pop home and go to bed.

(bedroom update – getting there very slowly – so far i have a new bed base, extra bedside table and sheer curtains.)

it's mango season! it's mango season! it's mango season!
plus some other market shopping…
coffee, veggies, healthy treats.

and buying a pretty fairy dress for a certain little princess.

warm summery weather means me bbq(-ing) after work.

catching up with friends at the races.
i'm still enamored with horses.
all frocked up, and all i wanted to do was go riding.

bedroom inspiration

my latest inspiration.
my bedroom is undergoing a bit of an update.
loving white with dark contrasts, sheer curtains, any kind of sparkle, muted colours and a vintage feel.
wishing most of all that i could paint the walls, but it's not worth the bother in a rental property.
i'll post some photos once i'm done!

francoise nielly

amazing find: francoise nielly: a french female artist.
i love the bold palette knife technique, the flashes of fluorescent colour and the intensity of the subjects faces.
my kind of portraiture!

lazy saturday morning food

i adore breakfast.
especially on saturday morning.
saturday morning:
no food.
but i had eggs, soy milk, self raising flour and frozen berries.
voila… pancakes with raspberry sauce.
and i whipped them up in a few minutes.
good for a kitchen avoider like me.

recipe from here
(thank you iphone)

raspberry sauce:
heat up frozen berries in a mini saucepan and add a bit of sugar and vanilla extract.

try it!
