Sensational Seafood


Summer Entertaing


One of my favourite things about the warmer months is entertaining.
I love cooking and I love having friends over because it gives me a good excuse
to get in the kitchen and cook up a storm!
My friends love their food ~ so they are always enthusiastic and appreciative of my efforts
and they are a lot of fun to cook for.
 Because we live by the beach
in summer it's generally seafood and barbeques because that's everyone's favourite.
There's something about sitting on the deck looking out to sea,
feeling the sea breeze and smelling the salty air
that makes seafood the perfect choice!

Tropical Aqua


Tropical Aqua


There's nothing more appealing than shimmering aqua coloured water,
a pearly white sandy beach and palm trees swaying gently in the breeze.
Combine that with a boutique style hotel or a tropical villa
and a suitcase full of aqua coloured resortwear and
I'm in heaven!

A Cottage in Denmak


Danish Summer Cottage


The owners of this cottage live and work in Singapore but when the school holidays start they pack up their bags and travel to Denmark to spend summer at their holiday house. The family of five have being living abroad for years now but their Danish home on the north coast of the Danish island of Zealand is where their heart lies.

I love the contrast of the wide chocolate floorboards against the crisp white timber walls. This summer house is a welcoming mix of cosy lounging spaces, eclectic pieces picked up on their travels and contemporary joinery. It has a relaxed style that looks like a great place to unwind and get back in touch with nature. The green Thai triangular massage cushion is a nice quirky touch and looks like a good place to sit and read in the afternoon sun.

PS : Notice the grass growing on the roof... don't you just love that!

The Italian Dream


Glamour Vacation

Feeling inspired by George Clooney's wedding in Venice
I was thinking how lovely it would be if I was somewhere in Italy right now ~
 a glass of chilled, white wine in hand!

I would love to be sitting on a sun drenched balcony overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean sea. Nothing to do except soak up the sun, relax, read and eat. When I get bored of doing that then I might get more adventurous and take a boat trip or a bike ride and see some of the sights.

Slow Coasting



Weekends are all about kicking back and relaxing,
winding things back and taking it easy.
Beach walks, fun with friends, time to do the things you love,
good food and a few glasses of wine 
puts work and play back into perspective and 
it makes you realise what's really important in life!
