Video: Eeee! This time lapse of LA is so beautiful
Article: A tour of Iris Apfel’s Manhattan apartment. This woman has always blown my mind with her incredibly exciting style. I have always loved the way she dresses and after seeing her home in this article, I’m even more in awe.

This week I’ve also been thinking hard about goals for 2014 – a vision board is on the cards for this weekend. What are your plans? I hope it’s nice and warm wherever you are =) xobec

Good morning! This week I set up my art exhibition ‘of wildflowers & wings’ I’m always so nervous having my art on view like this! But it feels so good to push through arty barriers.
We are having beautiful summery weather and I went for my first swim of the season. Golden sands and crystal clear blue water – Nelson summers are the absolute best. I cannot wait for the outdoor movies to start!
How is your Christmas shopping going? I haven’t even started. Only 6 sleeps to gooo.
