Pin(n)ing for a getaway

Today I’m wishing I was anywhere but here. Actually anywhere isn’t completely true, I have some pretty specific criteria: Sand, sun, clear blue water but most of all solitude.

Somewhere like these places:


Lucky there is Pinterest to help me dream a little dream. Feel free to check out my Getaway board for some other blissful beach getaway pins.

Are you where you want to be today?


Ooh! That’s Pinterest…ing!

This week has seen the procurement of my two christmas presents from The Man.

New blinds for the deck…

Kinda like this...

And a beautiful new iMac!!

Exactly like this!

Needless to say, I’m a very lucky girl.  If I was even luckier, Santa might also bring me…

A Pandora Charm (or two)

A new fragrance…

Or a DSLR…

Ok, you’re right, that’s just being ridiculously greedy.

At the risk of sounding extremely corny, all I really want for christmas is a whole bunch of …

All these images are from my Pinterest xmas wish list board because today I’m linking up with Tina Gray {dot} me for *drum roll*

What’s on your Christmas wish list??

Ooh, that’s Pinterest…ing!

One goal of my life  this holiday is to cut some of the household clutter and get a little more organised.  And what would an organisation attempt be without a trip to IKEA? I’m heading there on Tuesday with a BIG wishlist and Anne from Domesblissity to help push the trolley 😉

I’ve been devouring the catalogue for inspiration but also have been having a little squizz at Pinterest for some IKEA ideas.  I would love it if my trip resulted in the following transformation of my humble home:

Love this kitchen

How much would the boys LOVE this playroom!

What I really need is the IKEA design team to come and do a little renovation rescue!  

What is likely to happen, despite my big plans, is that I will walk away with a spice rack, some wine glasses and a couple of storage tubs.  Perhaps I will just camp out in the displays for a couple of hours and play pretend. 

Do you love IKEA as much as I do?

So, I have a new online addiction – Pinterest. I place the blame squarely with Tina Gray {dot} Me for making it look so darn enticing! It is therefore her fault that I’ve been pinning this morning instead of doing the online grocery shop.

My current inspiration is my upcoming Melbourne shopping trip. Here’s a few things on my wish list:

Love this floral maxi skirt…

…and I’m going to attempt to pull off a maxi dress – even though I suspect I’m too short & round!

I’m a little obsessed with coral at the moment.

And I love everything here. Definitely need some strappy sandals.

Actually, I think I might just use this as my shopping list…

Are there any must visit shopping locations in Melbourne you recommend?? What would be on your list?
