Happy Monday to you. It is freezing here and the rain is still falling heavily. A busy busy week and weekend, so a quieter week is very much needed.
I'm still receiving emails asking for advice on blogging. My biggest advice is to keep up with it. Sometimes I don't practice what I preach. It is hard to fit it all in but if you leave your blog static for a few weeks then unfortunately you will lose your readers. If it is not about numbers for you then that's okay to post few and far between. Numbers is just a part of it for me, an important part at that. The more readers I have, the more opportunity that comes my way. In saying that, standards and quality play a massive part also. Being consistent in both of these (regular posting and the standard of the blog) works for me. What I have just said above, I think goes for your social media pages also. Right enough of that, onto the good stuff...
When I saw this property, First Light, in the local real estate paper I just had to investigate further. I have spotted this home before so immediately the for sale sign my ears pricked up. This beach house is situated at popular Hawkes Bay beach, Waimarama and was beautifully designed by a group of Victoria University architect students who have since gone onto form architect firm, First Light Studios. Listed by Sothebys agent Nic Goodman, this property, with its cedar cladding and solar energy, is going to make some lucky person or family very happy indeed.
I have always been a massive fan of New Zealands Misery Guts. I love the vintage vibe and the fact that they are different to anything else out there on the market. These two hangings are next on my wishlist.
And lastly before I go to clean the pen off my wall that my little hurricane just out there, I am all over Country Road's latest homewares. I'm loving their clean modern designs. Versatile and fitting for many different styles.
