Nicki Plowman Handmade Clutches




If you are anything like me, leaving the Christmas shopping until the last minute is a given. You get there somehow but only just. Well I am going to help you out and point you in the right direction when it comes to shopping for all of the women in your life. Mums, friends, sisters Aunts, and I think you deserve to buy yourself this gift also.

I am actually amazed that I have only just discovered these beauties but how divine are they? These handmade indian bohemian style swati clutches from Nicki Plowman are incredible and would make any girl swoon. Hand stitched in exotic colours and patterns suggestive of the festivals, adventure, and culture of India. These one of a kind clutches add a bold statement and pop of colour to any outfit, making the perfect Christmas stocking filler for all of the girls in your life.

Shop here or contact Nicki, sales@nickiplowman

House Tour



In absolute, total awe of these rooms found over in this house here. Loving everything about them. Shows how well you can decorate a white room using unique furniture, rugs and art work. 

Madly trying to get things sorted in this last week of Christmas. Have done all of my shopping online this year and I am loving it! So convenient and I have not stepped foot into one shop. Sorry retailers but town and me just do not mix at the moment.

Nga Waiata




Last month I graduated from a 4 year primary teaching degree. It feels like it has taken me forever! During this time I got married, had 2 babies, started a business with my husband and kept Milo and Mitzy running so its fair to say I deserved a wee treat!

Hot hot hot on my wish list was a Nga Waiata ring and it has been on my wish list for a long time. Ngas jewellery is made from sustainably mined brazillian crystals and recycled native New Zealand black maire hardwood. 

Nga Wai has worked for many years in the fashion industry and has been heavily involved with fine arts, her work reflecting both of these.Each piece is hand made and takes on its on uniqueness while being created.

Check here for a list of stockists and perhaps leave this page open for hubby/boyfriend/partner to see!

This house, those rugs!






via
What I like here in this home is the neutral colours, the linen fabric used through out, the wish bone chairs, the white washed floor boards, those kitchen subway tiles and most of all the kilim rugs stitched together to make a real statement in the living room. TOTALLY obsessed with anything kilim right now! Top of my wish list!





Check out the amazing Kilims that Pip and Lisa from Siggada Kilims have an offer. I am in awe.

Happy week to you.

Sara Landstedt







The blog posts from Milo and Mitzy are few and far between and the words are fairly sparse, but do bear with me. All will be back to normal in the blogging world soon. For now I am busy taking the time to love my new wee family. I should really emphasize the word BUSY in the previous statement.But let me tell you, as busy as we are, we are over the moon and enjoying every minute of it all, even if we are walking around like zombies from a lack of sleep.

Above is the ridiculously awesome work created by photographer Sara Landstdt which you may have spotted before but I couldn't resist sharing with you all again. Check out more of her work here. Have a swell week and do keep popping by Milo and Mitzy when you get a moment as I will be posting as often as I can.
