Hunt and Seek



Being from the small town of Havelock North in New Zealand, quality clothing shops are few and far. However, we are blessed with the beloved Hunt and Seek. Hunt and Seek now offer online shopping which is an added bonus if you don't feel like leaving home! Do drop in if you are in the area. This shop is super cool and seriously worth a visit. You will find chic labels such as Maison Scotch, Juliette Hogan, Madame Hawke, Zanerobe, True Religion, Neverblack and the list goes on. A x

Very very vintage





I have a strong apprectiation for giving things new life. I have just finishied revamping an old chair that i found in a shed on the farm. Will post images at some stage but for now here are a few vintage inspired images to make you smile. A x

I thought I would share a few images from our wedding last February. It was held at my parents place in Havelock North. Our photographer was awesome. Such a perfect day! A x

WHITE ON!






When I got married a while ago, a friend of mine held a pre-wedding party for us. While most people have a kitchen tea or a bottle party I was lucky enough to be asked what theme I wanted for our pre-wedding party. With out running it past the hubby and without a second thought I said that "we" would very much like a white themed party please. I love all things white! This colour works in so many ways! Hope you enjoy the images I have found. A x

Girls just wana have fun!






If it werent for your girlfriends where would you be? I know I would be lost!

A few happy images I have found. A x

Black and Spiro





I have been following this blog for a while now. Anna Spiro owns a shop in Brisbane, Australia by the name of Black and Spiro. She has the most exquisite taste and when it comes to colour she is a genius. Go and take a peek. A x

Minty and Rosa!





Mint green and Rose pink- A colour combination to die for!

Stripes make me happy

















Well here it is... the moment I have been dreading/ anticipating/ looking forward to. The day I start a blog. You see the problem with me, me being a 26 year old girl from a farm in Hawkes Bay New Zealand, is that I have too much creative nonsence going on in my head. I find it hard to make room for other things! To me it is not nonsence but when you are studying for a degree, sometimes that nonsence takes over and I simply dont get much study done that day, but do get a lot of 'creative nonsence' done instead!

I adore stripes so I thought what better way to start off with than sharing some of the beautiful images that I spend hours drooling over. I can take no credit for these images, although I wish that i could! I hope you do come back and visit me! Untill next time. A x
