A-M’s Winter Holiday Capsule Wardrobe 2015 Now that the work year is finally coming to a close, and school is out for all, I am allowing my thoughts to turn to our impending ski holiday in Switzerland. We have just over a week before we head off, so it’s time to start packing my winter

I don’t read too many blogs these days … but there is one that I have delivered to my inbox every day. Every post lifts my heart. Check out ‘Be More With Less’ and Courtney’s two latest posts, that have really resonated with me …. Living With Less, The New Definition of Success, HERE 7
I had every intention of publishing my Monday Nook post earlier this morning, whilst answering emails and generally getting ready for the day, but I spontaneously decided to drive my big lad all the way into school today, so he could skip public transport. I am getting all sentimental about his last 2 terms
Well, here is a building company after my own minimalist/small-living heart! Small Change Design & Construction, a building company that focuses on high quality small housing (that is both affordable and sustainable) has this gorgeous little beauty up for sale in Geelong, Victoria. On a teeny tiny 160sqm block, this 2 bedroom home has a 56sqm
Favourite Balconies. I live small. It may not look like it, with my shed full of pretties, but on the home front I prefer the ‘less is more’ mantra … when it comes to the things I surround myself with, my living spaces and the size of my wardrobe. Less mess … with less things,
One day I will have a Parterre. I will. Somewhere. Hedges and symmetry and gravel paths and pretty, tiny flowers … … so I can still have my urban life, be close to everything, hang out in my local digs … but have an elegant, stylish, ordered garden. A bit of French Renaissance, in inner
Small living can be just so beautiful. This sweet little nook is the work of Anna Carin Design in Sydney, Australia. I am drawn to her clean lines, Scandinavian accents and her love of white. You can see more of her work HERE. Happy Thursday! A-M xx
Our big Christmas tree, that touched the ceiling of our last big house it was so ridiculously tall, remains at the back of the shed this Christmas! It’s just too big for our compact urban dwelling this year, so I have been looking at ways of doing the tree thing without doing a tree as
Time to pack for Dubai! I have been adding bits and pieces to the ottoman at the end of my bed, for the past week or so, as I come across things I would like/need to take with me. Time to sort it all out and cull! It’s no secret that I like to travel as light
I have just over one week to go before I head off to Dubai. So while I am preparing for my auction next weekend, arranging furniture installs for real estate listings in the week that I get back, taking phone calls from family members about Christmas presents for nieces and nephews (Christmas? what?
This is NOT a sponsored post. I was not paid money … I spent money. Life has been rather exciting since Aldi moved in across the road. I like to kid myself that I am a ‘non-consumer’ and that I strive for ‘less things and more moments’ …. but that Aldi middle aisle gets me more often
I sort of love the idea and the look of a platform bed. Not a loft bed, not a bunk bed, but a bed just elevated enough to get that delicious storage in (spoken like a true apartment dweller!). Maybe as I get older I am drawn to things more utilitarian?! My teenager would love
Ok, so I may be a minimalist when it comes to my wardrobe, but having been the proprietor of an online jewellery store, (back in the day when my youngest was in nappies -when no-one was online!) I still have a rather large collection of ‘stock’ on rotation to add variety to my work wardrobe.
I needed a rest this past weekend. I really did. Hooray for the long weekend. I had to force myself to slow down and remind myself that I occasionally need to just ‘go slow’. I took the time to make my boys a yummy breakfast. All greenery was supplied by my #balconygarden … spinach, parsley, basil.
