With February about to come to an end I am here to give you my latest favourites!  I must say February is one of my favourite months of the year.  The kids are back at school so I have time to get on top of all those chores that build up over the summer holidays when kids are around a lot more and it is a time of new routines and goals!  It is also probably one of the warmest months of the year and I love summer – it just makes me happy!  On Thursday it was a scorching 38 degrees here in Sydney and I took a deviation from the norm and headed to Bondi for a walk on the beach in the morning and then came home and went for a swim in my pool all by myself in the middle of the day! Unheard of!  I even went for a second swim with the kids after school!  

So here I have for you my February Favourites!  I hope you enjoy them.

I have never been one to spend much time in Bondi but in the past few months I have headed there to capture images of what is really a beautiful place in the world.  The image above is one I took this week however, the main inspiration for all of this is the daily email I receive from the one and only Uge from Aquabumps!  He really is the master of the Bondi image and I love everything he creates!  Check out his website here and make sure you join up for his daily email which will make you smile.

Next up is my favourite Instagram and You tube film maker – Sam Evans.  Just love his 15 second clips on Instagram and his longer versions on You Tube.  Mini films is definitely on my to do list for 2016!

If you have kids, especially teenagers or soon to be teenagers, this great article on raising awesome teenagers is worth a read.

Support a wonderful cause by visiting the Aussie Wellness Women website.  Purchase the beautiful e-book From Our Kitchen to Yours which is filled with beautiful, healthy recipes or take part in the Aussie wide donation drop.

And finally I am loving the wall makeover from the one and only Kara Rosenlund.  See it here.

With a new year always come new inspiration so I have decided to try a regular favourites post where I share four favourites from the week – anything from blog posts, to inspirational articles to new things I just love!  Here is my first one for the year!  Random things this week – things I think you should check out!  


First up is the recipe to this amazing cake & cordial I enjoyed last year!  Both amazing and both definitely worth giving a try.
Find the cake recipe here and the cordial here.

I have found a few great You Tube Channels to get into lately.  This weeks favourite is by Mimi Ikon.

I write a gratitude journal every day so when I read this article this week about setting goals for 2016 around what you already have it really resinated with me.
Find it here.

We are heading to the USA for a family holiday later this year.  I have always dreamed of staying at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica – even just one night would do me.  I might be dreaming but you never know!  Check it out here as it is just worth the look even if I don’t get to stay the night!  Would love to hear from you if you have stayed here or have any good tips for other places to stay in Santa Monica!
