Flatlay Love

I am fairly obsessed with flatlay photography. I recently got this new backdrop and this gorgeous wreath and so I spent an afternoon photographing it. This post is the reason why I couldn’t eat my lemon meringue pie until the next day! Sorry if I am a little absent this week and next – my…

RegularRandom – Five Minutes with Pens

I’m a stationery addict. There I said it. There’s comfort in knowing that I’m not alone. For this week’s #RegularRandom I decided to spend 5 minutes with my new Zebra Mildliners – (from http://www.bunbougu.com.au) these are seriously cool Japanese pens. I don’t know why Japan has such awesome stationery, but there it is. It is…

Olympus Macro Comparison – 30mm vs 60mm #RegularRandom

#regularrandom #regularrandom #regularrandom #regularrandom #regularrandom The lovely Jude from The Earth Laughs in Flowers asked if I had compared my two Olympus macro lenses. I recently got the 30mm macro lens after having used the 60mm macro for the last few years. I thought it was a great opportunity to compare the two lenses via our RegularRandom challenge, where…

Setting Cupcakes on Fire

Note that Julie tells this story very well here. It’s hilarious. Look at this beautiful cupcake. I can’t help it if they call it Bombe Alaska, and make me immediately think of fire! We tried vodka, not our most brilliant idea, but we had heaps of laughs (again check out Julz’ post, she has video!)….

More Pink Gerberas

Julie found these beautiful soft pink gerberas and I couldn’t resist getting up close and personal with them. And then I raided Julie’s props cupboard and found these little candies! Finally, it was my mum’s birthday on the weekend, so I used one of my favourite gerbera images to make this card for her: Wishing…
