Enjoy Your Weekend!

I loved looking at the January/February issue of Real Living magazine yesterday (thanks, Amanda!) because it's summer down under so naturally the issue reflects that -- so happy and bright! All the yummy outdoor settings, beach houses, and umbrellas (they refer to them as brellys, so cute!) made me instantly feel warm and ready to collect shells on the beach. Given that it was 1 degree here yesterday, I have to live through the pages of this magazine for another few months! Have you heard of Real Living? It was voted Australia's best home & food magazine for good reason -- it's gorgeous with attainable rooms that you can actually imagine affording and/or living in yourself. Here's a glimpse of the issue I'm enjoying right now, the first one is my favorite because I want the blouse ($35 from Tree of Life) and that curtain made out from vintage handkerchiefs.

And this image below is from last year but I can't resist posting it because the turquoise and the food is just so enticing!

Psst: Their Editor in Chief Deborah Bibby authors a blog with behind-the-scenes footage of shoots -- love it!

Have a great long weekend (U.S. Holiday on Monday 19th) -- I'll see you here on Tuesday, January 20th!
