Happy Sunday!

How is your weekend going? It’s been a glorious couple of days here in Melbourne so Mark and I spent most of yesterday walking around the city and enjoying the sunshine. For some reason, I got into a bit of a decorating mood when I got home and decided to re-arrange all of the furniture in our living room as well as switch our art pieces around.  Honestly, it feels like we’re living in a whole new space! Not only do I not have to look at our big (ugly) wall heaters anymore (until next winter anyway) but the room now feels much more spacious. Win.

I hope you’re having a lovely weekend too. If you’re looking for reading material, here are some fun links I found this week:

♥ A small Tunisian town was turned into an ‘open air museum’ with 150 street artists using the city’s walls as their canvas.

Four ways to keep your mind organized.

♥ Jenny Bernheim’s (fashion blogger at ‘Margo and me‘) home in Hollywood is as stylish as you’d expect. Love her office space!

Who is living your dream? A great reminder that jealousy can sometimes be a positive thing.

♥ Ever since I read this post I’ve been craving a french baguette like crazy!

20 fabulous (and free) desktop wallpapers.

♥ On the menu this week: haloumi with chickpeas salsa and couscous, beer steamed mussels, and liquorice all sort slice.

♥ The mercury retrograde is here again which means it’s time to watch what you say, triple check your travel plans and back up your computer! It’s not all bad though, here are 10 ways to make the most of the next three weeks.

♥ 9 gorgeous ways to decorate with plants.



  • Thanks so much for the shoutout! Those French baguettes are sooo good! I haven’t had one again since Paris, and honestly, I’m afraid whatever I have outside of it won’t be the same.
    Gonna check out the other reads now!

  • I love how moving furniture around can make it feel like an entirely new space! Glad your weather is warming up too, it sounds beautiful!
