15.06.14Inspiration Board

willow&eve inspiration board3

I've been wanting to make one of these inspiration boards for some time now. My own little collection of things that remind me why life is so great and why I do the things that I do. These boards are certainly not an original idea, but you can be as creative and original in your design as you like.

I collected a bunch of images that I love for whatever reason and started from there……

willow&eve || Queenstown17

I've just come back from a few glorious days in what would have to be one of the most stunning places on earth, Queenstown. Somehow though, amongst all that beautiful sunshine, I managed to catch a cold. My head is now somewhere between a state of dizziness and floating in the clouds and I've struggled enough trying to attach these photos, so I'm not going to attempt to say too much about my time in Queenstown.

One of my all time favourite things to do is explore the local homewares stores, galleries, markets and gift shops on offer while travelling through and exploring new little towns.

When the opportunity came up to visit Akaroa, a historic French and British settlement just 75km from Christchurch, I jumped at the chance.

willow&eve || kaiteriteri5

Over the hill, down the windy road. Welcome to a little part of Mr Abel Tasman's greatest discovery.
The adventurer in me set out to explore this wonderful part of the world, tucked into the northern coastline of New Zealand's south island. This is Kaiteriteri. Golden sand meets clear bluey green water. I'm told this little spot is packed in the summertime and I can see why. This is the kind of place that reminds me of my childhood beachside holidays..You just can't help but smile, breathe in the fresh air and forget any worries you had prior to arriving.

05.07.13A stroll around Melbourne City











I am the daughter of two Melbournians, but have never lived there myself. After my parents married, they moved to ‘God’s Land’ (that would be Perth according to my dad) where I was born and raised. All of mum’s family remain in Melbourne to this day so lucky for me, over the years I have had plenty of reasons to visit and people to stay with.

27.05.13Vinoti Living – an unexpected surprise.


On a recent trip to Bali (a.k.a. trusty holiday destination for many a West Australian) I was walking back to the villa when I stumbled across something I didn't really expect to see in Bali – an absolutely stunning homewares store filled with beautiful, quality furniture and homewares. I know what you're thinking, buddha head statues and wood carvings… but no, none of that here folks. The quality and presentation of this store was on par with any good homewares store I would enjoy browsing in back home. It was a visual feast to my slightly crossed after one too many KuDeTa cocktail eyes.
