i'm going... to europe!

so goodbye for now lovelies.
i fly out in two days for five (and a bit) weeks of travel.
in to amsterdam and out of rome, and who knows where in between.
my little blog may be a bit silent for this time.
but i'll be full of stories, pictures and inspiration when i return.
i'm so excited!
wish me luck.

i'm a little teapot

i have a slight obsession with teapots.
so i thought my little collection deserved a post all of their own.
my favourite is the first little orange teapot from my darling friend sj (found it at a garage sale years ago).

30 before 30 update

11. watch breakfast in tiffany's [done]
i watched the gorgeous visual feast that is breakfast at tiffany's.
it's glamorous and humorous and got me hooked on audrey hepburn movies now.

23. buy a pair of real ugg boots come winter time [done]
so i finally got some ugg boots.
the 'proper' kind.
not red – you have to order them.
but black'll do.
so warm and comfortable.
my feet are very happy.

26. visit the planetarium [done]
and finally, I took (dragged) jamie along with me to the planetarium yesterday.
i was so excited, possibly to the point of embarrassing for my poor little brother.
it brings back all the magic and amazement i felt as a kid.
who wants to go with me again?

my current favourites:

1 // blueberry banana breakfast smoothie.
made with about half a cup of frozen blueberries, half a frozen banana, 1/4 cup oats, spoon of chia seeds, couple of spoons of greek yoghurt, splash of water and a bit of honey.

2 // chilled, chilled, chilled water with lemon.
so refreshing!

3 // gin and tonic.
with only the best… hendrick's of course.
plus a sliver of cucumber floating on the top.

4 // gorgeous geisha tea from t2.

save the date flowchart

my mummy is such a clever lady

as you could probably figure out, my mum is over for a visit.
(+ my little brother).
she was showing me her latest craft project photos and i just had to share these two…
a beautiful handmade baby blanket.
made out of old woollen knits from the op shop.
and a bright red hand knitted cushion cover.
now she's knitting me one!
i'll admit i'm knitting too now – just a simple scarf.
i hope it turns out to be a scarf, rather than a scrap of messy wool.

my mummy is such a clever lady.
