Just a few shots I've taken so far this summer. The first and fourth images are both taken at a small lagoon style bay off the coast of Western Australia near Smiths Beach. This beach was secluded and absolutely beautiful. The water was calm and blue as it was surrounded with rocks that protected us from the gnarly waves out the back!
The others are taken at Rottnest Island and Eagle Bay, all in Western Australia.

These bags and necklaces can quickly add a burst of colour and individuality to any outfit!
Etsy is the greatest place to find handmade gems at a reasonable price! This particular shop - Love Obsessed - is unique and currently on-trend featuring bright popping colours as well as pastels on their jewellery.
Stacy Dill, the designer, solders various vintage jewellery pieces and hand paints them individually to create a customised one-off amazing piece.
My favourites are the necklaces (especially the first one featured above) because they give an instant lift to any outfit! These necklaces can be paired with a simple white tee and jeans for daywear. Or add one (the 4th would be perfect!) to a feminine style dress as it will achieve that edgy-yet-girly look.
With the new year close by its definitely time for a change in décor.
The first two images I came across on homewear blogs. The first looks like something out of Rachel Zoe's apartment, each clothing item is carefully sorted into the correct section, and lets not forget the colour coordination either. I love the library of books that have been separated by colour - I would quite happily spend all day in there. Mirrors are often said to make a room appear larger. In the case of the third image, the mirrors basically teleport you into another world where everything is sparkly... I wouldn't say no.
