Only Limited x Annabell Kutucu x Laing

Eeek, the first day of winter. Stay warm and enjoy your long weekend. We are off to friends to enjoy a night drinking Allan Scott wine by the fire. Kidless, might I add!



Only Limited. Its easy, limited designs for a limited time. Such a perfect concept. I dont know about you but I love having different in my home. Items that dont up in every second home. Quality, unique pieces. You get my drift? Only Limited is where you will find special limited edition items or smaller quantaties of collections.  Each collection stays on the site for up to a month, showcasing a curated range of new designer pieces launching every Sunday.

The artworks above are some of my fave online now. These are prints from The Virtue. Unfortunately this sale is ending on Sunday. However, so many more exciting collections will be launching online over time. See here to shop the full range and if you are a designer and keen to hear more, get in touch with Only Limited here.






I adore the work of stylist and designer Annabell Kutucu, having followed her closely for sometime now. Here she puts her touch on a 19th Century apartment in Berlin. Floor to ceiling curtains, leather modular sofa and the most incredible wooden flooring. How beautiful?






So if you follow me on instagram you will know that I recently purchased myself a pair of gorgeous striped cotton pyjamas from Laing. It is fair to say that I am absolutley loving these and living in these, thats for sure! We spend so much of our life sleeping, that for me, it is essential to be comfortable whilst in bed. Bonus being stylish, also.

Laing put a real empahisis on quality. Each of their Pyjama sets and their seperates are of absolute top quality. There is a lot of noise around sustainable fashion but sustainability is just as much about how long something lasts and where it is made.  Laing designer, Anna Murray makes her pieces to last until her customers does not want it anymore, not because it has worn out. Hence the reason that she has used french seams, high quality, durable pure cotton, pre washed, pre shrunk. Less stuff, better quality is where Laing is at. A perfect gift for that hard to but special lady or perhaps a pre baby treat for yourslef before you spend a lot of time in your pyjamas, feeding.

A bit of colour thanks to Dulux in today post. And if I must add, thanks Meg of Tea Pea you've gone and made me all clucky with your delicious Papinelle bloomers. Happy reading and thank you for the constant support.

Mumas of baby girls, run don't walk. How adorable are these Papinelle bloomers from Tea Pea at $20. So fricken cute it makes me clucky. And they make beautiful gifts for the new little ladies of our world.



Stop the press, the latest New Zealand House & Garden has hit the shelves and she is a goodie.



What I like is the diversity of each issue. From a charming cottage fit for a young family to an incredibly sleek and modern beach house overlooking  New Zealands Coast line. Not to mention the reader friendly recipes that I use and refer back to each time a new issue comes out to really impress the dinner guests. Perfect weekend reading. Cue Moana, you're welcome!

The Public Catering Company

I am supper excited about this one. This is the very cool Public Catering Company in New Plymouth which has been on my radar for sometime now. Here at Milo and Mitzy, we have just started working more with photographers around the country to shoot the spaces and the places that I feel fit well with Milo and Mitzy, and this sure does tick all of the boxes, thats for sure. Public Catering was shot by our very talented photographer, Anna Briggs. Anna is a New Zealand lifestyle photographer who takes a more documentary approach.









The Public Catering Company is an artisan provider of catering, bakery goods, breads and gelato using only traceable products and a focus on fresh and seasonal. The Public Catering Company front of house bakery is a part of the very cool West End Precinct and well, the photos speak for themselves really don't they? A space to admire, a space to inspire. The perfect spot to meet for lunch and I very much look forward to visiting. And, on that note, I am told the donuts are a must! If you have an event that needs catering for, these are your guys. Who wouldn't be impressed turning up to this food?

Thank you to our very talented photographer, Anna Briggs. Do pop over to check out the rest of Annas work or visit her on instagram to keep up to date with her goings on. If you have a space you feel might suit Milo and Mitzy, drop us a line and if you are a photographer  that may be interested in working with Milo and Mitzy, please also get in touch.

Father Rabbit x Frankie Wears x George and Willy

Happy Monday lovely people. I hope you all had a good weekend. I had a nice weekend with the wives and kids of the duckshooters.

I got to experience a  Dermologica facemap last week from Mia Dolce. I have been using Dermologica for the past 6 months or more and although I have never had bad skin, I receive so many comments since I have started using their products on how good my skin is. Their facemaps are free and your dermologica specialist will put you onto all of the products that are suited specifically for your skin type.


I am back to school tomorrow after 2 months off with Patchys leg. Hopefully we get his cast off on Wednesday. I am crossing my fingers like mad and counting down the hours. I have pulled back a bit this term on my teaching days which I am really excited about. I am focusing a bit more on Milo and Mitzy. I have a few writing and social media projects on the go and a couple of massive projects that are in the planning stages. (In my head!) Now I just need an investor! Come at me investors! :) No but seriously, if you are interested in finding out more about what Milo and Mitzy is up to or if you have any ideas you want to chat through with me, do get in touch. I am super pumped about pushing the brand and am open to any ideas from Milo and Mitzy readers.




Father Rabbit you never disappoint me. Father Rabbit Interiors Volume two is out now and its a goody, that's for sure.  I know I always harp on about these guys, but seriously, they re the best in the business. One can learn a lot from them.



We were lucky enough to be chosen by Witchery to shoot some photos of Frankie in their new occasion wear range. I can honestly say it is so beautiful, every piece and every detail and the bonus is that Frankie approves. (win win) I have been asked a bit lately if I am doing any Frankie Wears posts. I am going to be doing the odd one here and there so if you do have something that fits with our style, do get in touch. I would love to see your range.



As the days get colder, the washing piles up.  How great and essential are these drying racks from the incredible George and Willy boys?
