Is it just me or are fathers so much harder to buy for than mums? I dont see why a pack of bath bombs and fluffy pink slippers cant be given to Dads, too. OK, so Ive never actually purchased that for my father, but I do tend to gravitater toward the same standard gifts every year. This year will be different of course, thanks to the gang at Officeworks.

Polka Dots in Decor - Wallpaper Inspiration from The Life CreativeI'm obsessed with polka dots and I'm not afraid to admit it. Personally I think they far surpass the fading fad of chevron and are far more classic than a stripe will ever be. Polka dots are fun without being too juvenile - and the size of the dots allows you dabble in the trend or go all out.In this post I've shared my top polka dot picks - that you can nab online with just a few clicks (totally didn't intend that to rhyme!).

Nicole Fiedler's Colourful Bachelorette Pad - Living RoomLocated just five minutes from the water in Warriewood on Sydney's Northern Beaches is this colourful apartment; the self-named bachelorette pad of Nicole Fiedler. Purchased last year, it was her first out-of-home experience, "So I was very fussy and particular about how I wanted to style the place," she tells me. "Being a visual person, I need to have different shapes, textures and colours to look at and enjoy". Trust me, Creatives, she certainly has it in this dreamy space!

Distressed Coasters from Stone InspiredI've been through my fair share of coasters over the years. Not only because some of them fall apart, but because it's hard to hone in on a style that feels timeless as well as working from a practical perspective (a cork coaster is a one way ticket to Absorption City). I was a bit overcome when I got my hands on these bad boys from Stone Inspired, then - with a personalised gift inside just for me!
