Don't we all love to receive books in the mail, well I got my new cookbook and I'm over the moon. I don't remember how I found Jennifer's blog, but her cookbook Meals in Heels is a keeper for the hostess looking for brilliant and eclectic meals to treat her guest. I can't wait to try out my new cookbook, wish me luck my lovelies. Be sure to check out the sample page below for inspiration .

What's for dinner??? Here is the author's video of her amazing Pork scallopine with lemon and caper. Enjoy lovelies and be sure to checkout Jennifer Joyce's Meals in Heels blog and cookbooks here. Her next cookbook Skinny Meals in Heels is also on my wishlist. Have a great week peeps.

apartment decor

Hello everyone, I am here and I've missed you all more than you know. Life has been unusual of late with me not feeling very inspired to blog, but life is like that as we prioritize what's most important. I am currently on a bit of a vacay, but work has taken up most of my time as well as my pending divorce and finding my way through the maze of pain, hurt and injustices that comes with it. Of late I have been looking for some great decor inspiration as I might be moving to a smaller space just me and the kids, but that's all it is right now looking and hoping we can leave behind the memories of what was once a happy home sooner rather than later and as finances would allow.

Don't get me wrong here our little family has gotten closer and I never thought I could be this close to my kids. They are my world and life is filled with new memories, trips to the beach and to the movies. Finding happiness and peace, has been almost effortless with God in the midst of us. I guess He is amazing like that, holding all of us in the palm of His hand. We all have plans some expected and some well thrust upon us, like being a single mum was not what I had planned for my life, and there was no adjustment period, it was either sink or swim.  Looking back I realize I made the right choices as kids are very resilient and are happier when they are spared the strife and drama of a selfish parent, or I should say a parent in crisis.

Looking at all these lovely images gives me hope for the future and the possibilities that may lie ahead and I am currently pinning this decor space for future reference because I love everything, especially the sassy space saving ideas. I adore the column of books next to the bar cart as well as that stainless steel shelving in the kitchen, making everything accessible.

Well take care my lovelies and in the mean time please bear with me if my visits are sporadic, but know "Girl at the Beach" is going nowhere.

happy tuesday and beautiful vanities

Hello everyone, it's been a busy couple of weeks and blogging has not been high on my priority list. But I have missed you all  terribly while life has taken it's toll on me. 

Well firstly there was a fire at my house not major, but there was some damage. It was quite scary and thanks to some fast acting neighbours, my home did not suffer, what could have been brutal. 

While I was away however, I've been trolling for decor inspiration collected some amazing pics of vanities and organization inspiration for you to be inspired by.

Have a great week everyone.
