So very proud of my Mumma bear and her beautiful garden. Since this piece was published, two more ponds/lakes have been built, complete with a gorgeous hardwood jetty. It really is such a beautiful place.mum1

Real Living June 2012

May 22, 2012 § Leave a comment

I know I’m a little late to the party on this one but the June 2012 issue of Real Living magazine is a cracker!

Will you just look at that cover! The stunning artwork is by the talented Andrew O’Brien and I would kill to own a piece like that.

This issue also marked the release of a very exiting collaboration between Real Living and Target. That gorgeous hot pink bedlinen on the cover is only $109 for a queen set!

There are so many great spaces featured in this issue. Talk about major home envy…

Look at that side board!

Those Moroccan pouffes and wedding blanket!

That hot pink pendant light!

Be still my beating heart! -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.

Coasters Retreat

April 20, 2012 § 2 Comments

This gorgeous waterside home in Sydney’s Pittwater belonging to botanical artist, Cherie-Christine Curchod was featured in Country Style magazine a few months back and the photo’s have been saved on my computer, waiting to be shared ever since.

I love the way this home is styled, it’s so cozy and welcoming, fresh and warm at the same time with a beautifully ‘lived in’ feeling. Not only do I love the incredible style of this home but I love that it is only accessible by boat! What a dream… -C x

Wednesday Wisdom

This little piece of wisdom really touched me, I’m thinking I should take it seriously…

A whole pile of shiny new mags makes my little heart skip a beat!

My new toy! There’s a reason that these should only be given to professionals. So many choices…

On The Seventh Day She Shopped…

March 7, 2012 § 1 Comment

Today I had a day off from work so I decided to do a little bit of shopping. A little bit of shopping turned into a lot of shopping and here are the spoils!

This gorgeous pineapple from Bed Bath N’ Table reminded me of the 60’s brass pineapple ice buckets that I LOVE but this one is a candle!

Cuter than cute navy cotton bloomers from Peter Alexander

Funky fluro pink alarm clock from Spotlight

This pretty poppy bowl is also from Bed Bath N’ Table. It’s the perfect size to hold keys and coins on the coffee table.

This shower gel from The Body Shop smells scrumptious and is environmentally friendly to boot! The mask is from the Tea Tree Oil range which has recently whipped my naughty skin into shape.

Unusual brass candle sticks from one of my favourite vintage dealers in Southport.

Here’s what’s new in Mag Land, House&Garden, Marie Claire and Belle. I inhale magazines for breakfast, can’t get enough.
