5 lovely things I can't live without {Lemon & Lavender}


Hello lovelies, happy Monday! It has been raining non stop in Sydney, so we spent most of the weekend indoors trying to stay dry. Although we did make a trip to IKEA & Bunnings to get supplies for a little DIY project.


I was completely inspired by the project over at Aubrey and Lindsay's blog to turn an ordinary set of pine draws into a fabulous set of side tables so decided to give it a try.




I even managed to source brass handles that look exactly the same; I can't wait to see how they turn out!


But today, I am very excited to introduce to you Ashley from the lovely Lemon and Lavender. For those who don't know Ashley, she is an extremely talented designer who has recently launched her own design studio, Lemon & Lavender Design, specialising in beautiful custom wedding invitations and paper goods. Ashley always shares her gorgeous designs on her blog and never fails to inspire. Thank you Ashley!

{one} Family -  I have been blessed with a pretty amazing family and they truly inspire me.  I couldn't imagine life without them :)

{two} Friends - There isn't anything better than sushi and wine with a girlfriend.  They are always there to make you laugh or be a shoulder to lean on when you need it.

{three} Espresso - My little Delonghi is my best friend when I am trying to meet a deadline or stay up late blogging :)  To say I love espresso is an understatement!  

{four} Macarons - I heart macs.  I have tried many times to make them but failed miserably.  Nothing beats macs + coffee :)

{five} My camera - I have to catch all those fleeting moments in life.

Thanks for having me Rachel!  Have a good Monday!

Thank you Ashley!

Hope your week is off to a good start lovelies!

  2. i'm so with you on the espresso.

    and i've never had a macaron before! i've always toyed with the idea of making them myself, but since they're so notoriously difficult to make, i've decided against it. i'd rather let someone else do the work on this one, while i enjoy the benefits :)
