Bassike = Kids: 21.12.12

Ok, so as you are probably all aware I love Bassike clothing. I am not going to lie, I may or may not have a slight Bassike clothing problem....lets go with the latter. 

This very wearable, comfortable and stylish Australian label has made quite the impression on my credit card in the past few years and today it happened again, BUT not for me.... for Oscar!
Enter the baby dot tee, get yours here

I just couldn't resist, this ridiculously cute tee for O - I am picturing/styling it up with some cute stripe shorts (of course) and some nike kicks.
Good work - Team Bassike we Love.

Our Christmas Table: 18.12.12

This year we are holding Christmas Day lunch at our house. Yikes! 
I certainly have alot to live up to, as my Mum is the Christmas table dresser extrodinair! 

Over the weekend I was doing a little Grocery shopping when I came across the most perfect bon bon for the Chrissy table.Enter Woolworths (yes - Woolworths) multi-coloured polka dotted bon bons! These couldn't be any more perfect for my Christmas theme.

Yesterday I ventured to my local Spotlight to purchase a few 'Preston style' Christmas table decorations.
I wanted a variety of bright coloured cotton voiles in pinks, orange's, blue's and yellow's. 
The above pic. is what I ended up with and I am very very happy with the selection I ended up with!
These are going to be used for the Christmas table decorations - table runner, Napkin holders... you get the general jist.

What do you think??

And finally my diy paper-mache "noel" letters painted in hot pink and glitter. Oscar and I had a morning of painting and making a big mess, but we had fun all while listening to none other than Michael Buble's Christmas album - Love a good Christmas tune.

I would love to hear what you are planning for your Christmas table themes.

A day in the Life: 06.12.12

Can you bloody believe it, It is less than 3 weeks till Christmas......Ahhh

First Things first Have you made your Christmas List? 
Here are a few things on mine.
1. Petite Grand Necklace (purchase here)2. Country Road Neon orange + spot Pj's (purchase here) Rachel Castle canvas tote (purchase here) and some amazing Loeffler Randall Gladiator sandals (purchase here)

I just hoped off the phone to my husband (I think he thought I was crackers - Ha, a Christmas cracker! jeez I am hilarious) and I was telling him everything that I have to do in the lead up to Christmas,it's almost as if the world is going to end. I feel the need to be writing 50 "to do lists" and NEVER seem to get any of it done. Please tell me someone else is feeling this way?!

Anyway, this morning O and I got up bright and early and went to the beach to meet with my good friend Lainey and her sister in law and niece and nephew. The perfect way to start a day.
I enjoyed a Nudie Coconut water. Delish!

I managed to go to Beacon Lighting and pick out two ceiling fans which are getting installed next week ..... our new air conditioning units are also getting installed as well. The 40 degree heat last week sent me over the edge! I was to also pick out a pendent light for above our dining room table but got completely inundated....there were just to many!
Here are a few that I liked....suggestions please

Must be off need to start wrapping some Christmas pressies.
