Top Ten Things I Love (apart from reading)


Today I’m talking things I love. Not the big, super-duper-important, high-level things like my family (because that goes without saying). No, today is about life’s little pleasures.

1. The beach. Pools. And swimming in those places (the picture above is my favourite place to be during summer – McCrae beach on the Mornington Peninsula).

2. Handbags. Particularly evening purses. Kate Spade is often my undoing.

4. Yellow.


5. Food porn, particularly Australian Gourmet Traveller.


6. Gossip Girl. Speak to me Chuck Bass.

7. ABBA. I’m five again, in the loungeroom, dancing to my Arrival record.


8. Gin and tonics. I won’t pretend anything healthier…


9. The scent of violets and coconut (but not together). Amongst my favourite things – Laura Mercier’s Violette andΒ  Kiehl’s Amino Acid Shampoo.


10. And last but not least, nail polish. I will never reveal how many bottles of nail polish I own but it’s shameful. I’ve been favouring shades of blue and green of late but metallics are creeping in for summer. And despite what my husband thinks, all of my bottles of red polish are slightly different.

For fun, check out bookish manicures here and here.

  1. Nail polish! I’m big on the blues and greens and black (oh, and nude), especially the metallic shades πŸ˜€ Though I have started wearing a bit more red and pink these days too xD

    Been loving the beach/sea/sky photos you’ve posted on Twitter. I’m not big on hitting the beach but your photos are so serene and bright and happy πŸ˜€

    I enjoyed reading your list! πŸ™‚
