hazy shade of winter...

The first day of winter certainly hit with a blast of frosty air! We have been running the oil heater in Evie's room, layering up in our cosiest knits, and just generally settling in to enjoy the cold weather.

This Witchery Coatigan has been worth it's weight in gold as the chill really sets in - it's somewhat akin to wearing a blanket hahaha

It has most definitely be slow-cooker weather, and ours has been getting a real workout!

Chicken cacciatore...

Kashmiri lamb korma...

Winter is birthday season in my family. This week, we celebrate my mum, sister and brother, then me in a fortnight. 

I don't understand how Coles can be selling roses in winter for only $10 a bunch, but I'm not complaining! 

We bumped into a neighbour-to-be at the new property flying a drone-mounted camera to take photos of his new apartment - he was kind enough to send us a few awesome aerial shots. The scaffolding is almost all down now and it's looking so fantastic!

We have been getting right into the interiors magazines, so many ideas for the new place! Some would say it's a fairly generic space, but I love that it's all white and neutral, it's a real blank canvas for us to personalise, and I cannot wait!

I'm currently making the most of the bright winter sun and the wind to get a week's worth of laundry done. Winner!

Hope the weekend is good to you all - stay cosy!


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your new home! It looks amazing.

  2. Almost done! How exciting! I can't wait to see what you do with it! I'm hanging out to get a generic neutral space hahaha our blue kitchen does my head in. 2 weeks until we list for sale (so much to do).

  3. How exciting that it's almost done!! Such a great shot, it kind of looks like a model apartment building!

    Love your shoes in the first pic!

  4. Your apartment building is amazing!! Check out that view! I know you'll make it so gorgeous

  5. Recipe for the korma please?
    Thanks Tammy
