This week has been a relaxing one…working on the blog and getting inspired to paint. Summer is being perfect here in New Zealand so Arlo and I are taking advantage of it by eating outdoors, evening walks at the beach, morning coffees by the water. Life is what you create it to be. And we are creating our own little lives filled with what Arlo and I love. Its fun! And exciting! And I am really happy to be sharing it with all my sweet readers
One thing I LOVE about summer is all the fresh berries and using them in different ways. On the first day of my 365 project Arlo and I went boysenberry picking and I decided to test them out in a smoothie.
Ingredients: 1 cup boysenberries, 1/2 cup yoghurt, scoop of frozen yoghurt (use any flavour you want!), grated ginger, lime zest and juice (I used 1/2 one), grated cane sugar (about a tablespoon). I also added a banana right at the end.
Put all the ingredients into a blender and whizzzzz. Taste it to see if you want more of anything, I love ginger and lime so always add more of these. This could be the perfect breaky for Valentines Day! xo Bec
What an amazing Christmas we had… fresh berries, fruit salad, flowers, sunshine, family and friends, blueberry pancakes (Look at the one that came out in the shape of a smiley face! I didn’t make it that way!), beach, swimming. Arlo gave me some very professional photography lights that Im excited to use for product photos for the Shop. I hope you all had a perfect Christmas. If you have any photos, leave a comment below so I can check them out! xo Bec

Today I thought it would be nice to take part in the popular ‘Weekly Photo Challenge” that wordpress hosts. Each week they choose a theme and you post photos related to that theme- this weeks is ‘Thankful’. Check out the link here for more info.
I am thankful for good food with family, summer berries & fresh seafood…
Old china designs, friendship, sunshine, nature and being a New Zealander!
Creativity, water colour paintings, blogging, inspiration & photography.
And my awesome life!
What are you thankful for? Hope you’re all having a lovely week! xo Bec
This week seems to have been a delicious mix of food! Arlo bought the latest Whittaker’s book which is FULL of delicious recipes. I found a dinner set that looks like some of my drawings! And a friend and I have started brainstorming for our blogs for 2013…what better way to do it than in the new Frankie diary! I found a jar of Marmite at our family bach yuuummmm…because of the Christchurch earthquakes, these are almost extinct now! Happy Thanksgiving to all my lovely American blog buddies! xo Bec
