Sequins, beads and silk!

I'm a bit of a fuss pot when it comes to styling at weddings and the photography... Saw these photographs and loved them! Such a gorgeous concept that is pulled together fabulously. The photographer, Josh Goleman has captured the essence perfectly. 

And you know i do love the small details... xx

Lipstick, fragrances & a stunning home...

I came across the fabulous home of Aerin Lauder, grand daughter of Estee Lauder and Senior Vice President and Creative Director of the iconic fragrance and cosmetics brand. And what a beautiful home it is too. Such beautiful colours, gorgeous wall decor, stunning fabrics and style that is unassuming and elegant. 

I unfortunately cannot wear Estee Lauder fragrances as they make me sneeze but i absolutely always adore their scents and their divine print campaigns, they manage to incorporate flowers so incredibly and they always ooze elegance. Lovely to see the gorgeous campaigns reflect this home perfectly. Kellie xx

What makes me tick...

I dragged Luke off to the flower markets at 5.30am on Saturday morning and on the way home we were laughing at how outrageous it was that i was excited to get out of bed that early to buy flowers. Ask me to go for a run at that hour or go on a holiday at this time i would most likely refuse. Yet, the thought of trying to find some sweet peas in the middle of winter is exciting and very glamourous. P.s I didn't find any sweet peas but found some pretty roses (the orchids are from my mum's garden).

Whilst Luke doesn't jump out of bed in the search for flowers it did make me think how different things make people tick...  Give me first pick of the flowers, for Kate (my best friend) she would love a sleep in and a late breakfast, my mum, a healthy breakfast and a game of tennis. What makes you tick of a morning?

Pretty fabric swatches

Not sure what i might do with these fabric swatches, perhaps just admire their beauty for the moment. I am looking to change our bedroom, i just can't seem to make my mind up. 

I adore the lovely detail and quality. You can see the beautiful threads in some of these photographs. 

Any suggestions?? Kellie xx

Wide open spaces....

I love beautiful big properties that feel as though they are the only place for kilometers. Yet, as you know, i also love to shop so would need my home to be close enough to the city. You surely couldn't blame me for falling in love with this beautiful home at Avalon, on Sydney's fabulous Northern Beaches. I just happened to cross paths with it today by luck. It must be a sign....

Sure the decor isn't exactly what i would choose but with 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms there is lots of room to play. Here are some of my favourite pictures i would use as inspiration for this beautiful home.

One day we will move here. Dream with me. Xx

Buy this divine property for me here. x Pretty pictures from here.
