The-Mexican-Dress

I saw this dress on Inez Daily last week and just love it.  So perfect in every way, especially on that dark beauty.

I’m taking a break from The Poppy Files for a couple of weeks as we are going on a wee family holiday and I am a little bit excited.  Xxx

French Terry Playsuit ♥

Paddo To PalmyJust saying “French Terry Playsuit” immediately whisks me away from my southern hemisphere Ugg boots and long-johns to the delights of Paris.  I love this little number from Paddo to Palmy:

Your one stop shop for an all in one outfit that earns extra points for being as comfortable as it is stylish.

Made from French Terry with a vintage inspired three-quarter tie up sleeve this playsuit will take you from the beach to the restaurant with ease.

Impeccably tailored it features a built in knotted belt that will cinch in your waist and generous culotte shaped shorts will flatter your pegs.

How beautiful is this photo from their Instagram feed of @maisieandthesevenseas admiring the Opera Building in Paris wearing her playsuit?

Ah … bring on summer!

James' 2nd Birthday

Our little James turned two on Monday.  It is hard to believe how different he is to when he was born, weighing in at 2.030 kg.  He was skin and bones but now look at him – a little bruiser who is chatting more and more by the day and has been nicknamed – Strongman.  💪

He loves his little Gumby and so I made him a Gumby cake, complete with green icing (sorry Mum’s)!  He had a special day with lots of presents and cuddles.  Happy Birthday little man.  xx

Salt : Pepper ♥

Menu Salt & Pepper Grinder

Today I am loving these Menu Salt & Pepper Grinders available from Norsu Interiors:

Menu’s new Bottle Grinder is built for performance with a clear ambition to intrigue your senses. It leaves a powerful first impression due to sheer size and intensity but Menu has spiced up the grinder experience by flirting with the unconventional shape of a bottle.
An upside down design secures that salt or pepper sprinkles out, when you grind only. This way the grinder leaves no marks of salt or pepper on the table or in the kitchen.
  • Minimalistic bottle design
  • Grinder located on top
  • Coarseness adjustment by turning
  • Solid handle
Menu’s Bottle Grinder is powered by a durable performance ceramic grinder and comes in natural Scandinavian colours.

Birthdays : Festivals

Hobart

Another winter festival in Hobart … another birthday.  We stayed on the boat in the city on Friday night to celebrate my husband’s 40th and went along to the Bonfire and Big Sing as part of the Festival of Voices.

Hobart turned out in droves to stand around a massive fire and belt out a tune or two.  I love seeing everyone out and about and rugged up, even when the temperature gauge is in the single digits.  Hobart continues to inspire.  Xx

Juggle : Juggle

Winter flowers

It’s been an interesting week, with no time for blogging as poor little Pops has been quite unwell with high fevers and tonsillitis!  James is getting over (just) his ear infection and so it has been a bit of a juggle with demands at work and looking after sick little ones.

We have had some nice moments in between however – enjoying a fab 40th celebration for a friend on Saturday night, and a drink and dinner catch up with an old friend who was visiting from Melbourne.  Xx

Uimi ♥

Bindi ScarfAlways a lover of natural products I am especially fond of the virtues of wool and wear it on a daily basis.

I bought this fantastic scarf made by uimi last week in Melbourne and it ticks all the boxes – it is a natural fibre; it is warm and cosy and it is bright and colourful to liven up these dreary winter days.  Perfect!

Logo

We create unique knitwear by bringing together vibrant colours, bold patterns, beautiful textures and the highest quality renewable natural fibres; from fine Australian merino wool to luxurious Egyptian and organic cotton.

Every uimi product is proudly designed and manufactured in our studio and knitting mill in Melbourne, Australia.

You can even coordinate with matching cushions and blankets if you are feeling so inclined, but they have so many other fantastic patterns too.
