happy weekend

weekendlinks

And oh, how the weekend is already here. Does it seems like the days are flying past us or is it just me? The last time I thought about it, I was lazing about on my front porch enjoying my long summer holiday. And yet to think that in two weeks, we are halfway through the first school term. New York and London fashion week have flown by and Autumn is soon upon us (hooray! I’ve had enough of Perth’s stifling heat and humidity). But before the weekend is over, here are a few weekend links:

(clockwise, from top left)
one | white on white, beautiful garlands that would be a delight in any room
two | chocolate peanut butter cheesecake, need I say more?
three | lovely geometric jewellery
four | a natural scrub with four simple ingredients
five | what beautiful floors!
six | a citrus wreath, such a different but clever gift

Happy weekend!

First Monday, Then Tuesday

It seems as if Monday has flown by with me barely realising its presence, and after a short slumber, Tuesday will greet me from behind rain clouds and drops of dew rolling off leaves. But before we let Monday run through our fingertips into the dark shadows of the night, I will leave you with a few links from the weekend:

In the office: Desk Clocks | a roundup by Oh So Beautiful Paper

Gold: A necklace that when spun reveal the words “I love you

Wear: This beautiful dress by no other than the amazing Elie Saab

Hope you have had a splendid day.

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Cupcakes-brownies-and-blondies-3

For Mother’s Day, my dear brother, A, bought a set of bowls similar to these and many packets of mum’s favourite chocolates, whilst my fantastic sister S and I will be cooking up a storm. Whilst the specifics have not been planned out, there is sure to be something hearty (perhaps pumpkin soup or coq au vin), plenty of drinks and most definitely a delectable dessert.

Still haven’t gotten around getting a gift for you mum? How about…

Shops have all closed? Sometimes a sincere card of honest loving words is all she really wants. This printable card would be perfect!

Hope you all have a fantastic Mother’s Day weekend!
