My Little 'Work Station'

Since moving into our apartment I've realised that I've totally taken over the lounge and coffee table. It's become my getting ready space and my office, and consequently is always covered with my stuff (much to Pierre's annoyance). 

In the morning I do my make up in front of the T.V. It's great because I can spread my products and brushes out whilst I watch Sunrise and keep an eye on the time, and at night I curl up on the couch with my Mac to study and blog. Once we get the apartment properly set up I'm sure I'll find a more permanent set up for my make-up, but for the moment this is it!

My space.

Flowers, MacBook Pro, Make Up Bag, Mirror.

This is one of my favourite arrangements I've had in the apartment. The colours are so fresh and bright, and compliment each other beautifully.

My constantly over-flowing make up bag!

There's A Nip In the Air!

There's a nip in the air and I'm getting excited for the cooler weather! My favourite season is autumn because it's not too hot nor too cold and autumn/winter fashion is always the best. I just wish Queensland had more deciduous trees so Autumn really was 'Fall'.

This autumn I plan to 1. Read books 2. Drink tea 3. Read more books. 

My sister and I reading at home in our PJs. Luckily for us Mum is an avid reader/book collector and the house is sort of like a mini library.

Tea is always more enjoyable in a pretty cup - and this is my favourite one.

A book I thoroughly recommend.

An Easter Get Away

My Easter holidays were actual holidays this year which I am so thankful for. I got the chance to relax with my family in a beautiful waterfront apartment and enjoy some sunshine, the beach, pool and lots of wine!

Some highlights were kayaking to Bribie Island, hunting for Easter eggs, reading books and design magazines and spending time with the family.
