Happy Sunday!

I hope you’re having a great weekend so far. I hosted a brunch for a few of my girlfriends on our rooftop terrace yesterday and the weather turned out to be be fantastic for it! Could Spring have already sprung? I sure hope so! Last night, my friend Jo also took me to a great little Italian restaurant in St Kilda, if you live in Melbourne I definitely recommend you check it out! Their pizza were delish and the prices very reasonable.

Anyway, enough about moi. Here are some wonderful links I found for you in the last week!

♥ I am obsessed with these paintings from artist Erik Mattijssen, the colors are just stunning.

♥ I know the Frozen theme song has been done to death but this wedding toast is still a winner.

199 thoughts you have when you shop at H&M – OMG yes!

♥ Yummy things to make this week: smashed avocado, feta and mint on toast, lemon artichoke pasta, and pumpkin and walnut cake.
