Hear that? It's the sound of New Year's motivation. It kicks in once the hangover wears off the evening of January 1 and it usually only lasts a few weeks into the new year.
I've been a big fan of Adore Home Magazine for a while now, so I was rather delighted when I was asked to take part in the latest issue, by compiling a list of my fave buys for summer. As with most of the things I adore, the picks showcased high velocity hue and were all a bit fun and frivolous.
When I attended this week's Cotton On Open House event, Mother Nature was again in fine form - beaming down some glorious golden rays (she's been in such a good mood lately!). And when I use the term 'open house' I actually mean it; the event took place inside and on the lawn of a glorious home in Point Piper. It was all rather amazing. Not only did I star spot Didier Cohen and papp the lovely Lara Bingle, but I immersed myself in a tonne of Typo goodness!
Jayde Leeder is one busy gal. Not only is she a mother to two little ones (six-year-old Iggy and 14-month-old Minty - who Jayde tells me suffers from FOMO and thinks she’s 27), but she co-owns my fave store for all things stationery, Little Paper Lane, in the Sydney suburb of Mona Vale. I sat down with the former makeup artist and learnt a few things about stationery, running a family business and her hatred of tomatoes!
I'd known for a long time - being an absolute stationery lover - that an expedition to Little Paper Lane in Sydney's Northern Beaches was going to be an awe-inspiring experience. I wasn't quite ready, though, for just how jaw-droppingly amazing it actually was (cue the love song!).
