Strawberry Ice-Cream Crush



Strawberry ice-cream

   





I have a major summer crush on strawberry ice-cream.

Somehow that melt-in-you-mouth
fresh, fruity burst of flavour
sums up all the good things that summer has to offer!

I have a total weakness for traditional shingled houses like this one in the Hamptons.
So when I saw this one was for sale I had to check it out.
 It sits on almost an acre near Sagg Beach and is listed for a mere $6.5 million!
 
The listing says: “On a private lane, this 6,500 sq. ft. traditional Hamptons home has ocean and pond views as well as a pool and pool house”. Sounds good so far! It also features soaring ceilings, beautiful hand-hewn barn beams and dramatic windows. The focal point of this dramatic open first floor entertaining area is the stone fireplace and multiple seating areas. The house has 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. That would do me very nicely!

Loving this bright and zesty trio
of lemon, lime and tangerine.
A great fun summer colour combo
that's happy, vibrant and full of energy.

A Fluoro Pink Summer











What a perfect solution to a hot summer's day
Champagne Popsicles
That is my idea of a great end to
a fun day at the beach!

Today’s post features a house decorated by Portuguese designer Vera Iachia. Casa Tatui is a summer home with an interior outfitted in shades of seafoam, blue and white. Together with the use of natural materials these colors give a clean fresh feel throughout. The innovative use of wood adds warmth to the cool toned color palette and I just love amazing ceilings throughout and the beautiful filtered light that shines through.

New Wave






SUMMER IS THE MOST NOTORIOUS TIME FOR YOUR HAIR. 

Here are some secret tips for shiny-super soft hair from Pantene
 
* Give your hair a break from using hot hair tools during the summer months and consider letting your strands air-dry. If you must blow-dry - use a leave-in conditioner designed to protect your hair from heat. 

* Control potential frizzies caused by humidity by wearing your hair up in a knot, bun or braids. 






* Be religious about your having your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks. When your ends feel frizzy, it means they’re damaged, split or both. 

* Always use products with a SPF protection to protect your hair and scalp when you’re at the beach - or better still, wear a hat. 



* Hair needs to be treated more gently during the summer. Consider switching to a more moisturising shampoo and conditioner. 

* Before you dive into the pool, soak your hair under the shower first to lessen the hair's absorption of chlorine. 




* For sun exposed or sun damaged hair, apply a deep conditioner to damp hair, wrap in plastic wrap before bedtime. Leave on overnight for extra repair and re-moisturising benefits.

Tropical Style














Bring the beauty of the tropics inside with rattan accents, bamboo furniture, cane baskets, jute, coir and seagrass matting.

Natural textures and a tropical spirit make woven accessories the perfect addition to laid-back beachy tropical style. Use them as room accessories such as feature pendant lights, bar stools and feature furniture pieces to create a relaxed feel. Bright fresh greens and pops of tropical colours inject a sense of fun and vibrancy into this style/scheme.
