This is a little collection of photos I took over the last holidays... It was full of green lawns, sunshine, surprise packages in the mail, cookbook reading, organizing precious things and trips to local cafes and the windy beach. It makes me happy looking at how beautiful these photos and places are. The nostalgia is so pleasant, especially when I'm not having the best of days...
Gorgeous roses complete this charm bracelet.
The gorgeous array of macarons at a local cafe. I know I have featured this photo before but I just love the look of macarons! Whenever I buy one I always feel slightly reluctant to eat it because it's so pretty. I sound silly!
The Retro Cookbook by The Women's Weekly is beautiful. I borrowed this edition out from the library and instantly fell in the love with the gorgeous layout and recipes that depict the 'olden days' so well.
I'm a little obsessed with Izzy's pointe shoes! The last time I went over her house and fiddled with her camera, I draped them in tulle. I can't help it! They are so beautiful. It's wierd to think how much pain they cause ballet dancers.
Rosey (my eldest sister) stirring her luxurious french coffee... and eyeing off a divine lemon tart for the side!
I'm actually not a huge 'beach person'... I don't like sand or salty water (how depressing) but the day I did go to walk along the board walk it was looking more stunning then ever. The water was a vibrant blue, the sky 100% cloudless.
This little keepsake box is where I store most of my stationery. It's quite large and fits perfectly in the shelf of my bedside table so I can easily reach it whenever I need to write a letter.
