When the team from Papaya invited me for an exclusive tour of their Mosman store last week, it's safe to say I was a little beside myself. I've been a longtime fan of the brand, always rather fond of their contemporary designs and use of raw materials. When I stepped into the interior of this North Sydney oasis, it was like being transported into another universe, where I lost my mind in the best way possible and am not certain I have it back yet.
This week saw me hit the Moore Park Supa Centa, snapping loads of home and decor goodies. I also discovered gorgeous goodies outside of the centre too. Which one is your fave?1 | I am addicted to buying cards. So much so that I have a stack in my drawer just waiting for an occasion to roll around. I was in all sorts of fits of ecstasy this week when I got my hands on these mind-blowing cards from TJ Stationery. They're letterpress ones - printed on 100% cotton paper stock - and I just love how simplistic, playful and charming they are. The Kite and Swing ones are my fave, but there are many more, all with the same sense of love. Too good.

The new issue of Inside Out - available now - proved it by including me as one of its Six Blogs to Bookmark. That is, of course, not the only phenomenal thing about this issue, but it certainly helped raise my excitement levels when I got home to rip open my subscription and flick to page 42 to see The Life Creative mentioned!
Where does one start when it comes to describing Oz Design? While it's been around as long as I have (30 years and still doesn't look a day over 25!), in recent times it's multiplied its amazement factor. When I walked into the Moore Park store for my exclusive tour, I almost needed the store manager, Joe, to slap me across the face to wake me out of my design-induced coma; the current range is that phenomenal.
