Need help finding the perfect gift? Home is where the heart is ♥ I’ve found some gorgeous homewares to make any house more homely – great for Christmas or the perfect house warming gift!
Well hello there, Friday! How nice to see the end of another week – and the beginning of a long weekend! I know that I’ll be spending it as I spend every Labour Weekend – sorting out my garden (which is horrendously overgrown) and getting it ready for planting things for spring and summer. Very domestic, but worth it when your flowers start to bloom and your veges are ripe for the picking! What are your plans this weekend? Make sure you take some time to relax and unwind!
I believe in treating myself well, and part of that is choosing to have lovely things in my life. They don’t have to be expensive (although those that are, I think they are worth saving up for), they just have to be things that make me feel like a million bucks. Nice fabrics, beautiful designs, jewellery that holds sentiment and meaning, even lovely cups that remind me to sit down and appreciate how fortunate I am.
It’s the beginning of October and that means that we are only a couple of short months away from Christmas – eek! Here are some of the things I’m coveting right now, maybe you can start your Christmas wish list early too?
It’s not long until Christmas (two and a half weeks, eek!), and if you haven’t got your Christmas gifts sorted yet then you need to hop to it! Here is the first of my Christmas gift guides to give you a bit of a helping hand.

LUSTING AFTER … Alex tote from Saben
This beautiful galaxy-inspired tote is even more beautiful in person than you can tell from this picture. What can I say, it’s shot straight to the top of my wishlist… If you want to fulfil my dreams (or perhaps your own), you can get your Alex tote from Saben for $440.
Whingy Meagan is in full swing at the moment – I’m unwell (like, “it’s taken me until 5pm to get out of bed so I can write this post” kind of unwell), exhausted, and one of my BFF’s moved to Wellington today. I also have no idea what I’m doing with my uni projects this year and haven’t even begun the huge amount of research I need to do because I’ve been so tired. Looking forward to an early night tonight (despite having only spent about 30 minutes out of bed today), ready for an early start tomorrow morning.
Okay, whinge over. Now on to the wonderful parts of my week…
1. Fresh flowers! I love having fresh flowers in my house. They look great, they smell pretty, and they really do brighten up the place. I took these to one of my BFFs for her birthday this week (making sure to include her favourite sunflowers), and also took a bouquet of lisianthus to a friend who has been unwell. Not only is it nice to have flowers in your home, but it’s nice if they’re from someone else who just wanted to take the time to let you know that they’re thinking of you! Someone should totally bring me flowers… Continue reading
