Congratulations Mum!

September 26, 2012 § Leave a comment

Congratulations to my beautiful Mummy who is having her incredible garden photographed for Highlife magazine. I’m so very proud of you Mum and I hope that you can put the stress aside and enjoy today.

I wish that I had some more photos of the entire garden, but here are a few of Mum’s pretty flowers and I’ll share some better pictures at a later date.

The Most Beautiful Wedding I Have EVER Seen…

September 19, 2012 § Leave a comment

Justine Cullen is the editor of Shop Til You Drop magazine and one very stylish woman so it would be expected that her wedding would be a sight to behold. But this wedding exceeded all expectations. These photos have been floating around the web for a while now but I still can’t get over how stunningly beautiful this wedding is. It’s basically everything I’ve ever imagined that my own wedding will be one day. Just gorgeous…

The details are just incredible and the location is gorgeous. Be still my beating heart!

You can see more photos on Paula Joye’s LifeStyled here, make sure you check it out, because it is STUNNING.

A day in the life 18/5

May 18, 2012 § 3 Comments

My day today looked a lot like this….

Uni is really kicking my butt at the moment so today I took it out into the sunshine, all in the name of hard work. There were apricot danishes, lots of coffee and a side serve of Foucault.

Some of my favourite foods are fresh fruits. Fresh fruits that are only available in summer or très ‘spensive this time of year. So lately I’ve been trying to track down some wintery fruits to satisfy my cravings. This was tonights dessert combo…

Kiwis and pear topped with organic vanilla yoghurt, deeelish!

In other news…

Some of my Mum’s beautiful roses chillin’ in the cool room.

Have a lovely weekend! -C x

Very bad blogger…

May 16, 2012 § Leave a comment

I’ve been a very bad blogger lately and life&otherbeautifuthings is feeling tres Neglected. With a capital ‘N’. Sometimes life just gets so busy and full on that certain facets of that life have to lapse in order to prevent one from feeling overwhelmed. I should have been a therapist right? Anyway in amongst completing the last semester of my undergrad degree, working full-time and organising a move interstate next month, there hasn’t been much time for The Blog. But I miss it a lot so I’m going to try to make an effort to check in more often even if its just to show you a pretty picture like this one…

This gorgeous image is by the very talented photographer, Sharyn Cairns. Possibly my favourite interiors photographer EVER. Seriously every time I see an image in a magazine that I LOVE, Sharyn is the talent behind it.

Happy Hump Day! -C x

Miscellaneous Monday

March 12, 2012 § Leave a comment

Not much of note in the last few days so I thought I would share some miscellaneous images of my day to day…

These beautiful pink spray roses are making up for the fact that my Mum’s incredible roses are too far away!


I haven’t finished styling the inside of my new bureau yet (I just can’t find exactly what I’m after!) but here’s a sneak peek of one little guy that made the cut…


Miscellaneous garden goodness…



A brand new coffee table book that has rounded out my Sibella Court collection…


Have a lovely week everyone! -C x
