On a cold winters day

 Vintage teapot   //   Darjeeling yellow teacups gifted by mum from Farmers  //  
Retro tablecloth by  Iko Iko    //  Vintage plate gifted from Etsy

So it's freezing in New Zealand at the moment and the best way to enjoy a cold winter is to eat good food and stay warm. To start the day on a good note I made me & mike some piklets with cream cheese & strawberry jam with a nice cup tea!

The other big news I have been waiting to share with all of you, is that me & my hubby will be
moving to Qatar to live for 2 years in August!!

So if I have any readers from Qatar I'd love to get in touch with you about
what goes on in Doha, Qatar.

Anna Amphigorously Photography

Loving this photography by Anna Amphigoriously & she is only 16 ! She is so good at photography. It makes me think about the things I am good in. Without being up yourself, it's good to acknowledge your strengths in life, and to focus on things your good at.

What are you good at?

Dreaming in Daisies

Winter is upon us and daisies are starting to die. I have been wrapping myself up in my pastel pink cardigan by Glassons and bought the new ChiChi smokey eye make up and some Channel bronzer.

I have been watching a few tutorials lately on how to get that perfect smokey eye look and found this one in particular which was very handy.

Happy weekend everybody.!
