February Wish List

February 2016 Wish List

What a great month it has been so far! I’ve just gotten back into the routine of things (i.e. stopped being a potato couch watching trashy tv shows all day erryday) and I’m finally getting productive and doing things I’ve been wanting to do all holidays! I’ve gotten an amazing graphic design internship with Axel & Ash, a design duo creating beautiful books and journals about travel and life passions! I’ve had the opportunity to do some cool projects under their wing and it’s been really enjoyable so far :) Apart from that, Jenny & I have been working on some awesome stuff for Two Threaded Poppies and the stuff we have in stall… it’s insaneeeeee and we can’t wait to share them with you!

And of course, with the productivity, means more blog posts! So this month, we wanted to share some products we’ve been lusting over this February – rose gold everything! Clean, fresh whites. Mom jeans… well, denim in general; and sweet, feminine tones.

Two Thousand Sixteen Calendar

IMG_0656

Hello friends!

Boy, am I late for this post. Like REALLY LATE. I’ve had so much on my plate prior to the new year with end of year final assessments at uni, to working 2 jobs (now 3) and juggling other things in between. Firstly, I wasn’t even going to make a 2016 calendar because I thought – I’m never going to get it ready before the new year (and I didn’t haha). But last year I made a cute little customised 2015 calendar for my brother’s family which they loved (and I loved seeing it hang in their home whenever I visited). And I offered to make another calendar for them! So now that I’ve gotten into the routine of 2016, my productivity has been improving! Thus, my calendar is finally finished.  A few of you were interested in having this one for your homes too which is why I’ve decided to upload this to the blog for you to print :)

I hope it finds a nice place in your bedroom or living room or walls. Please tag us on Instagram if you do end up using my calendar! I would love to see pictures :)

Summer Trends

Summer 1516

How is it February already? I feel like time is such a luxury these days… it’s always passing so freakin’ quickly. And it’s the last month of Summer? Wow. I know this post is a little late because trend reports are supposed to be out before or in the beginning of the season and not the end… So, sorry about that. But some trends that I’ve been noticing popping up lately are the ones drawn above! Yes, I’ve changed things up a little with this category on the blog. I wanted to show a little more of my artistic/drawing side and I thought this was the perfect way :)

This season… and transitioning into the next, it’s all about the lace-up front tops and dresses, skinny neck ties, white sneakers (particularly Adidas) and the combination of both blush and white together are Summer’s match made in heaven!

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel

2b copy

What I love about summer is enjoying days like these. Good weather, good food and good company. This week, we’ve been blessed with beautiful Sydney weather, so my friend and I decided to take advantage of it and hit up Watsons Bay for the day! We wanted to try out this food hub by the water that everyone raves about here called Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel. We had to see for ourselves.

Continue reading

It’s a 20 minute ferry ride from Circular Quay and once you hop off, it’s right outside; a short one minute walk. I loved the ambience and chill vibe of the place and they played some cool music to set the summer-y mood. I loved that you got to enjoy the view whilst enjoying your meal.

1

My friend ordered the Hot Smoked Trout Salad with avocado, walnuts, apple, celery, citrus dressing. It was packed with flavour and you could really taste the smokiness of the trout.

3

I ordered their Roasted Atlantic Salmon with cucumber salad, pomegranate & lemon infused olive oil yoghurt. And yes, it did taste as good as it looked.

One thing I wasn’t the biggest fan of was how confusing ordering food and drinks were. There were no waiters to take your order, we had to go to the bar to order… and there were quite a few drink stations on site. But nonetheless, we both enjoyed our food, the weather and the view.

Because we were there, it was a must to go to the beach. We headed to Camp Cove beach, a family-friendly environment, just under 10 minutes walk from the ferry station.

We enjoyed a couple hours here just relaxing, listening to music, reading and snacking on fruit before we headed up near the rocks and witnessed this gorgeous view… Well done Sydney.

After more relaxing from this vantage point haha… we did the Watsons Bay coastal walk. It was so amazing to see the oceans and to feel the strong, cooling winds on the hot day we went.

10 11

By favourite part of the walk was seeing the Sydney skyline from the cliff. The sight of this makes me love the city I live in. I would LOVE to come back to this view at sunset one day.
