DISNEY x SHORT STORY

Disney has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are my parents reading bedtime stories from my vast collection of Little Golden Books, all the classic like Bambi, Peter Pan and Sleeping Beauty.
Then I grew up, had my own kids and the tradition continued with Disney bedtime stories. These stories hold special messages of family, friendship and dreams, they encourage kids to be themselves, be honest and be brave.

My kids, now 18, 17 & 8, have embraced the same love for Disney which becomes quite obvious when a Disney song comes on and they all break out in singing at the top of their lungs. So, when Disney & Short Story approached me about sharing their collaboration I jumped at the chance!

I first discovered Short Story about 5 years ago through social media. I instantly loved the unique way they use paper to create beautiful art and homewares, from their origami art to their paper lamps, their attention to detail is just beautiful. It is no surprise to me that Disney have chosen to collaborate with them on this incredible collection and I can’t wait to share it with you.

Let’s go …..

For this collection they have created a sophisticated and stylish range of homewares and jewellery for all ages, my 18 year old daughter is just as excited about this range as my 3 year old niece.

The framed art is whimsical and uplifting with stunning gold-foiled quotes inspired by the movies. The origami is individually hand-crafted from iconic Disney scenes and hand signed by the artist. They come packaged in a velvet lined box ready to gift. These collectors edition pieces are limited to 120 pieces and will be treasured though the generations.

Perfect for a child’s bedroom, the lamps are individually hand wrapped with vintage scenes from the Disney original animations, they bring a comforting glow at night sure to put a smile on anyones face.

I’m in love with the candles and I can’t pick a favourite! The soy wax candles come in pretty pastel glass jars and embellished with real flower petals. The delicious fragrances are beautifully paired with the princesses and include Coconut Sea Breeze for Ariel and Enchanted Rose for Belle. They are ready to gift in bespoke designed boxes complete with nostalgic scenes from the Princess stories.

22B0F9F2-17C2-4B4A-B2FA-35082AFA7A65

The votive candle lantern sits on a wooden lacquered base and showcases favourite Disney scenes wrapped around the heat proof glass. They are presented in a beautiful box, pair them with some tea light candles for a gorgeous gift.

5E4E81AA-9016-4D73-8DF7-7DCD65D15A7D

Floating flowers make these diffusers something really magical. The glass jars showcase real flowers chosen to embody the princess and the scents are just as enchanting with fragrances like Night Lit garden for Jasmine.

If you want to share your love of Disney with the world, the range of earrings is super sweet and they come in a huge range representing all your favourite Princesses. Crafted by hand in sterling silver and 14K gold plating, these earrings include characters such as Elsa, Ariel and Mrs Potts.

24BBF53B-562A-4596-A9BC-D2372044BF0A

The bubble earrings are fabulously fun with a ball of sparkle or real flowers on one side and a sweet representation of your princess on the other side, and the best part is they are reversible, it’s like having two pairs of earrings in one!

06F16D06-03EC-4BF5-B31E-EFB58B7E5AF4

Lastly, and so lovely, are the trinkets created to conjure special memories, positive thoughts and to serve as a lucky charm. They come in their own special pouch with an inspiring story card ready to gift or treasure as a keepsake.

Mother’s Day 2019

Our Mum’s, Mom’s, Mummy’s and Mother’s are all unique and different, that’s what makes them special.
That’s why I’ve put together a gift guide with something for every Mum.
I’ve selected gifts for the Mum’s that love pretty things, the Mum’s that choose comfort, the Mum’s who are practical and the Mum’s who already have everything …
Let’s go!

Mother’s Day in Australia is on the second Sunday in May, its Autumn and the weather is starting to get cooler, which makes it perfect timing to buy her some luxurious layers for Winter style. Think scarves, hats, bags or sleepwear.I’ve hunted down the pretty, the comfortable and the practical.

I love the colour palette of this check scarf, it super soft and big enough to double as a throw. The pom pom on the beanie had me at hello, who doesn’t love a big fluffy pom pom! And the french style purse (see below for a view of the inside) is the perfect size in the best shade of caramel.

CCEA4F20-D281-4282-BE86-0E76E078C8BC

If Mum is more of a pink girl, I found a gorgeous blush felt hat which is perfect to protect her from the winter sun, while also looking super stylish. The gorgeous grey bag (my Mums Mother’s Day gift, Shhh) is crafted from a buttery soft leather with antique brass hardware and those tassels are so fun! The pink star scarf is a gorgeous match to complete her accessories.

4DE4CC1F-A2F1-495C-B04A-79C620C08E9F

Does your Mum like a little bit of sparkle? This combo is just what she needs. The metallic spotty scarf is light and versatile with just the right amount of sparkle. While the phone holder in rose gold metallic is ideal to keep the essentials safe in a comfortable cross body or long strap style.

DE4AE23A-0F61-412E-92A4-9E3770ADC5F5

Slippers are one of the best go-to gifts for Mother’s Day, my Mum looks forward to a new pair each year. Have a look at what your Mum is currently wearing to decide what type of slippers to get her, you might like a slip-on type while your Mum might like a loafer or a boot. My Mum likes a boot type slipper and needs extra support after some foot problems, I chose a pair from Vionic as they are podiatrist designed for extra support. While I was there I also grabbed a pair for myself because hello … they are plush leopard print in my style – a relaxed slipper.

EXTRA BROWNIE POINTS – Watch a movie with Mum, make her a cup of tea and let her choose the movie.

9024D178-4F29-4238-A06E-A41D986C89AF

While we are talking slippers, you might also want to consider some sleepwear. I personally love a pretty cotton nightie and while I love a simple white nightie, I really love the floral print on this one.

07175BC0-1C0F-4FBF-9032-7176C7FD4305

Pair it with a sweet teacup, a vase of beautiful blooms, a candle in her favourite scent and a beautiful book to make it a complete gift experience.

7939EC0E-3CA9-4588-B640-041C2DCF8D5B

EXTRA BROWNIE POINTS – Make her a breakfast tray with her favourite tea and then let her stay in bed as long as she likes.

C44336B8-63AA-48B4-8BC0-B6A4CCE6D270

If your Mum is a bit of a coffee connoisseur, consider getting her a new coffee machine. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my old pod style machine die a little while ago, I replaced it with an amazing automatic machine that grinds the beans, froths the milk and makes the coffee all at the touch of a button. It is super easy to use and look after, I thought my old style pod machine was good, but this … THIS IS AMAZING!

8DCF6494-EABD-4099-AF58-E7A22796CDBE

EXTRA BROWNIE POINTS – Make Mum a cup of coffee and magically make the house silent for at least half an hour!

The plush pink loungewear is my Mother’s Day gift to myself, it is so soft and snugly, the only problem is my daughter keeps ‘borrowing’ mine.

AD2BF673-14E9-4CE8-94B8-7954DBF9B369

A classic Mother’s Day gift for good reason, it’s always a winner – get her some bubble bath or scented soaps. These have the prettiest packaging and they smell just as gorgeous as they look.

EXTRA BROWNIE POINTS – For the ultimate bliss, pop on some music, light a candle and pour her a glass of wine or champagne and let her soak the day away.

F38CEE71-A6CC-43A8-AC4F-7F3C72FA046A

For the practical Mum, gift her some luxurious housekeeping products. I love this beautiful bench spray and hand wash, they are scented using Australian bush oils and are available in a range of unique scents.

707192DB-8B1B-4134-9352-A513F01AD028

If your Mum is a baker, how about the gift that keeps on giving. I recently got a kitchen mixer and I absolutely love it. Trust me, she’ll love it so much she’ll find any excuse to use it and you’ll have cakes and cookies because it’s Tuesday, okay, maybe that’s just me.
Pair it with some cake mixes and some fancy cake tins and she’ll never leave the kitchen!

912F169B-A34F-4E15-8F7D-4F8B6168D01E

If your Mum appreciates the finer things in life, consider gifting her a beautiful tea set. You could buy the whole set or just a few pieces for each occasion until she has the whole collection. I love this collection inspired by the Quinsai Gardens with its exotic flowers in delicate and pretty colours, there are peonies, camelias, magnolias and chrysanthemums. Each bloom has a deeper meaning, for example the magnolia shows special respect for beautiful women, what could be more perfect as a Mother’s Day gift?

8901253B-2021-403B-8AEB-B48C686FAAFB

CHEEKY TIP – Choose a tea set that you love too, then cross your fingers your Mum hands it down to you one day!

6024940C-42D3-4914-B94F-C2D3E2265ABB

Lastly, this is always one of my favourite gifts to put together – a basket full of goodies. I love finding a stylish big basket and filling it with lots of little gifts that I know Mum will love.

I know my own Mother loves receiving candles, flower seeds, chocolates and handmade trinkets from the kids.
Your Mum might like these too, or maybe she’d like skincare, make-up, jewellery or craft supplies. Here’s a few ideas to get you started …..

80D1CA98-01A0-48E2-8AAA-7D67C0474F3B

One last tip for Mother’s Day shopping – many stores offer free gift wrapping, take advantage of it!
Here’s an example of the wrapping available at Bloom & Co.

Disclosure : Some of these items were gifted to me, all of them were hand selected by me, all opinions are my own. Y’all know I don’t share things unless I love them, I love the quality and I love the brand.

My Last Minute (don’t panic) gifts for EVERYONE!

Flashback to yesterday … I was PANICKING!

I am usually THAT person that has everything beautifully wrapped in pretty papers and perfectly paired ribbons, placed under the tree with care and ready for Christmas by the first week in December.

Yes, I am usually THAT person that everyone does massive eye rolls at while they are loaded with coffee, armed with their shopping list and battling the crowd during midnight shopping hours.

This year, I am NOT that person!

Yesterday, I wrote out my list and cleared my calendar for the entire day to shop, I had 12 hours of uninterrupted shopping hours to get it done.
Yes, I was panicked, but I was a lady on a mission!

I started at the stores that have something for everyone, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids and West Elm and I took you all with me in my Insta-stories, which is what brought me here … It seems I am not alone and the messages started flooding in –
What one is that?
What size does that come in?
Does that come in another colour?
Is that available online?
Do I still have time to order online?

Because we all know I believe sharing is caring, here I am, sharing all my last-minute gifts complete with links direct to the website for you to shop.

Let’s Go!

Starting with one of my favourite gifts for just about anyone – a lantern, pair it with a beautiful candle and tie it with a bow, no wrapping required!
I couldn’t pick just one, so here’s a few that I love, but really, they are all gorgeous.

I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t love a snugly blanket!
The Cosy Pom Pom throw was actually on my 16 year old daughters Christmas list, one of her friends has one and she was raving on about how soft it is, then she came in store with me and made me feel it … we bought it and now I’m the one raving on about how soft it is. It’s seriously softer than any blanket I have ever felt before!

Christmas is entertaining season, buy one of your friends some bar tools and let them make you cocktails, it’s a win win!
I love this one finished in nickel with gorgeous leather accents.

Do you know someone who has a crown? Then I’ve found the perfect jewellery box!
The McKenna range comes in 5 sizes, there’s one to suit everyone’s  jewellery collection. It also comes in a few different colours including white, porcelain blue and blush pink.

If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know I love a personalised gift.
Monogram everything I say! These vintage print mugs are fun and easy to gift to just about anyone on your list.

For your funky friend or family member who has everything – I bet they don’t have a salad plate with a shark sporting a bikini? I have one of these awesome plates hung on my wall, but they are equally as fun to eat from.

For the plant lover, these terrariums and planters would make a gorgeous gift paired with some fresh plants. Try some succulents or a fluffy fern.

I didn’t forget the kiddies!

But seriously, can I have a tea party with this Kitty tea set?
It is absolutely adorable!

Jewellery Boxes are one of my favourite gifts to give to kids, they love to have somewhere special to hide their secret treasures. I used to find the funniest things in my kids … random buttons, shells, parts from board games and body parts from broken toys.

I love wooden toys and Pottery Barn Kids has the best range around!

They have some fabulous train sets, Orly loves this one …

Wooden Metropolis Play City Train Track Set 

This is a few of my favourite toys that my own kids had/have. They are tried and tested by my kids and they have been played with again and again, some of them for all 3 kids and they are well loved.
These are toys and games that I gift often because I know they will be favourites.

The Gotz Doll collection by Pottery Barn Kids is truly a gift your little one will cherish for years. They have a few Special Editions out for Christmas including the three below that I thought were absolutely gorgeous.
What I love about gifting a child with one of these dolls is that you pretty much have every birthday and Christmas covered for the next few years with all the fun accessories. You can add to their collection every year with everything from awesome outfits to doll size furniture and even a horse stable and pony!

Are you lucky enough to be buying for a baby this Christmas?
Then you are going to go ga-ga when you see these animal chairs and rockers! They are super soft and snugly and come in a range of adorable animals, good luck choosing just one!

OK, So that was all the gorgeous gifts that I shared on my Instagram yesterday.
I hope that has answered all your questions!

Here’s a few more things I found while scrolling the websites that may have just jumped in my cart, or are currently on my wish list.

This jumped in my cart … because you can only get it at Christmas so you simply must make the most of it!
I know y’all go crazy for the Peppermint Bark and I get it, it’s pretty good …. but the TOFFEE!
The Toffee is something else and I may have just ordered 2 tins that I will be hiding and not sharing with anyone, yes I’m greedy like that!

handcrafted-toffee-z-1

Williams Sonoma Handcrafted Toffee

On my wish list … because I want to feel like I’m in a fancy hotel everyday!

hotel-piped-trim-robe-z

Hotel Piped Trim Robe

And lastly, on my wish list … because everyone loves a good vase. I adore the organic feel of this range that is crafted by hand inn terracotta and finished with wrought iron handles.

 So here’s the low down –
The cut off for online orders to be received by Christmas is midday 21st December (Friday) for small parcel deliveries to Metro Sydney, Melbourne  and Brisbane only,
OR
You can shop in store until Christmas Eve with FREE gift wrapping.

Oh, and remember how I said I had 12 hours of kid free, uninterrupted shopping time … I got my list ticked off in just a couple of hours!
Do you think I went home to the kids?
No way, I made the most of those hours of bliss! I sat in cafes and sipped coffee, went out to lunch with my daughter and went clothes shopping, because I always need another pretty dress!

Happy Shopping!

Gift Guide 2018 – For my Blue & White loving tribe!

I couldn’t let this opportunity slip by!

The chance to share all my favourite blue and white finds, some of them that you haven’t even seen before, just in time for Christmas shopping! That’s right, I’ve kept a few pieces in hiding until this blog post. I wanted to reveal all the goodies together to give you all an equal chance to nab your favourite pieces before they sell out, and they will sell out, because they are all AH-MAZ-ING!

8DA75750-9B8A-4EE6-AF84-BEA97743D57C

Blue and White ceramics have been around for 100’s of years, they are used in many different decorating styles these days from Chinoiserie to Hamptons, Coastal, Country, Nautical and more.

B8F1F265-5B34-4248-A97D-E37345561194

I’ve also included some of the essential styling items that we all like to mix in with our B&W … things like rattan, silver, iron and white ceramics. They all compliment each other and are sometimes necessary to break up all the B&W.

I’ve also tried to include pieces that will work in all the different decorating styles so hopefully you can find something perfect for your home and your style.

A0A7BB8A-B154-4F8B-9D33-09DBC7D54C6A

Australia has come a long way in the home decor market over the last last few years … finally! We have many more options available to us now, so I’m going to tell you exactly why I chose each of these pieces and what I love about them.

Scroll Pattern with gold trim Ginger Jar – These speciality ginger jars with gold trim are some of the most coveted pieces by B&W collectors. They are hard to find and sell out at lightening speed. Never fear, I’ve found the mother load! There is only 1 or 2 pieces of each design and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. This will be a treasured piece to hand down through the generations, good luck just choosing one!

Lotus Ginger Jar – I chose these ginger jars because they have a striking blue pattern that really demands attention and they are a great price for the size which makes it affordable when you want 2. I love to buy things in pairs, styling with pairs brings symmetry and symmetry makes my heart sing.

EAE80679-0839-4DDA-802D-1B4D70607C39

Rattan Round Tray with Cloche – OK, lets be honest here, I have wanted one of these for ages. I don’t care if I never use it, it can sit in my home and look gorgeous. Rattan brings an instant country or coastal vibe to your home, especially when mixed with blue and white. It is classic, affordable and would make a lovely gift paired with some luxury food items.

D03C6F2A-2ACD-4C6C-BDC1-A3B258941FB8

Rectangle Rattan Tray – A tray is such a versatile item. Use it to create a stylish coffee table vignette with a stack of books, a few B&W pieces in varying heights and a candle ….. Use it in the bathroom for your bath items, a beautiful orchid in a blue & white pot and a candle ….. Use it to carry your plates and cutlery from the kitchen to the dining table or use it to serve your loved ones breakfast in bed.

4C4E983E-C19F-4706-9A3E-9E258E3BE635

Shibori Throw – I love the organic nature of this Shibori throw. If you don’t love floral prints, Shibori is another way to break up all the graphic prints and harsh lines. It brings movement to your space and a fabulous pop of colour.

Mohair blanket – Ummm, did you see this blanket? Mohair is made from pure angora goat wool, it is super soft and indulgent. This one is the most beautiful duck-egg blue and just oozes sophistication. Everyone deserves a little bit of luxury, right? This is one of those gifts that you would absolutely love to receive but is probably something you would never indulge in yourself, I think it’s those things that makes the best gifts!

ACFDD576-FD12-455F-97B9-BED1DB24CA4B

Stonewashed Linen quilt set – Y’all know how I feel about linen, completely obsessed! I chose this quilt cover set because it is plain white so it will mix back with any colour, including our beloved B&W, but what I really caught my eye was the sweet fringing around the edge. It’s the small details like this that really elevate a piece into something special.

6781284B-3DE3-4270-A741-1A75E5F6B6B2

Melmaison ginger jars – I love something that is unique, the print on this jar is hand painted with the brands own signature print by Chinese artisans. You won’t see this pattern everywhere. Again, at under $100 per jar, they are well priced and perfect to style in pairs.

16030808-4FFD-47A0-A621-714136150DF1

Shiloh cushions – A classic trellis pattern evokes a chinoiserie vibe, but the gentle colour palette makes it beautiful for many more home style. I love creating a mix of cushions consisting of one graphic print, one floral or organic type print and one solid. This trellis ticks all the boxes for my graphic selection.

46F0D5CF-5461-4B8E-877F-FF72FD3B7A57

Bailey cushions – I choose this one because I love the colours, the baby blue and navy blue has the ability to feel quite cold, but the pop of mustard on this cushion instantly warms it up.  I also love the strong embroidered pattern.

0D666930-6877-4B73-99B4-70A96FA85A3D

Providence Urn – This piece is such a classic shape and is finished in a beautiful hand crackled finish. The natural white ceramic looks amazing with a group of blue and white pieces, it gives your eye somewhere to rest and brings a sense of timeless French style.

2B086479-E1DA-4DCC-9EEE-7078AFFC7E24

Avery Stand – I love adding a little bit of vintage to every space, but it’s not always possible to find the right piece for each space. This iron stand is hand painted to appear aged and brings that same warmth and sense of history to your display. It is such a versatile piece, I love it styled with a plant or flowers, or you can use as a bowl/food stand and cloche for food as it is actually 2 pieces.

D4F8CA7E-BA2F-43A7-9358-0AD66B391BA4

Open Weave rectangular basket – Not just for fashion, a great bag like this one also makes a gorgeous styling prop. Fill it with books or magazines, or use it for your knitting, whatever you put in it will look stylish. Also, seagrass is a perfect warm compliment to B&W, particularly gorgeous in Coastal homes.

D4137A58-887D-44E0-98B5-66EC2AF93C52

Decorative Bell on Jute – Like that little cherry on the top of your ice-cream sundae, this little bell is a finishing touch that adds interest and personality. I adore it’s braided wool embellishment in our favourite colour palette.

877B0979-1934-4B5D-A9BE-35F439D86BF1

Whale Cushions – For the nautical and coastal homes, whale decor is a necessity, and this cushion is so chic. It is embroidered on a natural cotton with contrasting piping, the blue colour palette mixes perfectly with your B&W pieces.

13A5D534-4440-43A9-A18C-BF9C5FB87EAF

Wooden Boat – While we are talking coastal and nautical …. how fun is this wooden boat? It is a playful decor item, but the rustic wood makes it stylish rather than childish. I love adding a conversational piece like this to a space, and its B&W.

64AACDD3-48E2-4DCF-9003-E40D5A2B9173

Pink Leopard cushion – Sometimes you need a bright pop of colour to break up all the B&W. This pink cushion is so fabulous and would be ideal for a modern chinoiserie styled home.

38933F8D-6A13-4851-91CA-9C31E48D8ECD

Cowrie Shell necklace – Shells go hand in hand with B&W in Coastal and Hamptons style homes. The tribal necklaces look beautiful on stands, on the wall or around the neck of a giant ginger jar.

D8F20569-470F-40E8-884F-189420BEAC2B

Squat Jar – What I really loved about this jar is the shape. It is a substantial size, but it is low, which makes it great for a coffee table or dining table because it doesn’t block the conversation, it’s also perfect for the kitchen bench as it fits under the overhead cupboards without looking crammed in.  I have been searching for a piece like this for ages!

9B9F10AB-A68D-44D6-B28D-3DA1AAF64DD8

Mini Ginger Jars – Yes, Mini! We all love something that is miniature and these ginger jars are no exception. They are the perfect size to use in the kitchen for tea, coffee or sugar.

Egg basket – This caught my eye as soon as I saw it, I can imagine it in a Country or Farmhouse kitchen full of fresh eggs and styled with some vintage B&W pieces handed down through the generations.

Melmaison teacups – Everyone loves a pretty tea cup and this is one of the prettiest ones I’ve found in ages. The delicate blue and white print is complimented by a shiny gold trim. It’s lovely to drink from and would make a lovely gift, especially when paired with some fancy tea.

Spotty Bowls – Hello spots! Have I told you how much I love spots? They are playful and classic and I love these little bowls for ice-cream sundaes on a Sunday night.

XL Silver Clock – This is such a statement piece! Silver always looks classy with B&W ginger jars and this clock is the perfect piece to style with a pair of ginger jars on a sideboard or entry table.

B&W Decorations – Most definitely not just for Christmas, I think these will be sweet little additions to a bedside vignette or coffee table tray. Keep an eye on my Instagram, I’m sure you’ll see these pop up in my photos often.
