Tahitian Dream











Tropical Paradise


When listing my favourite travel destinations
Tahiti would have to be at the top of my list.
When I was young and adventurous I wanted to explore the world,
trekking jungles, climbing mountains, camping through Africa,
backpacking through Europe, Asia and America. 
Now I'm older and lazier ~
I just want to go somewhere beautiful,
stay in luxury resort, laze by the pool and sip cocktails at sunset.
It's funny how things that make you happy change so much over the years!

Watermelon Crush




Watermelon Crush






One of my favourite summer fruits is watermelon.
It is the perfect antidote to a hot summer's day.
Simply slice it up and serve it chilled
for a deliciously refreshing summer treat.
If you are feeling a little more adventurous
why don't you make some watermelon popsicles
or a batch of icy granita.

Sydney Beachside Apartment









 




Sydney creative Jessie James gives her beachside apartment the feminine touch 
with an all-white palette and pared back details.

When it comes to decorating small spaces you need to work it a little harder to create a light filled home that appears bright, open and spacious. Keeping furniture to a smaller scale and having an eye for detail will help to maximise a small space. It's also a good idea to use furniture that serves a dual purpose - e.g. a sofa becomes a guest bed and try to keep window furnishings to a minimum in order to let in as much natural light as possible.

This one bedroom apartment in Manly is a wonderful example of what you can do with a small space proving that style and creativity do not need to compromised, even if the space is. This apartment, not only possesses a fabulous view, but is full of beautiful things such as the Moroccan wedding blanket, Balinese tin boxes and one-off vintage pieces

My Chilli Prawns







 


Relaxed weekends, sunny days, salty air, bare feet and good friends 
calls for these tempting morsels.
If we've got company on the weekend
I pop into the local fish co-op for some freshly caught prawns.
Sea salt, crushed garlic, chilli, home grown lemons and parsley
is all your need for this quick and simple tasty dish.
Washed down with a glass of wine
they are a perfect light lunch or evening appetiser.

Nautical Seaside Chic







Nautical Decor



 



Nautical Chic


Create a sleek nautical look in classic stripes.
Stick with the old favourite navy and white
or give it a new twist in black and white.
A great staple in a coastal wardrobe and 
perfect for accents in a seaside cottage.
