Bedside Stories.

The elegant bureau with the black & white theme is instantly made modern with the POP of deep yellow and the graphic patterns. Loving that lamp too.

I have always adored bedside tables, I believe they reflect a very personal style. I remember my grand mother having an entire vintage bureau as a side table, I thought this was extremely classy as a child. Have you given your bedside table an update recently? I hope you are inspired to take a closer look. Take care my Lovelies.

 I love this space and its subtle palette as well as its quiet nature and beach theme.


 Mint and turquoise very inviting and refreshing.



Fresh, simple and the linen headboard gives a soft dreamy visual texture.


   I LOVE the usage of the reclaimed barn beams for the headboard and the sculptural knotted tree side table is simply a work of sheer genius.   


 I LOVE the usage of the Campaign style side table with its patina zinc legs.  Elegant yet breezy, inspiring yet subtle…


I ADORE the layered visual textures and the controlled usage of bold colour with the layering of bold patterns…a truly sexy bedroom.

What I'm Lovin Today - The Jamaican Patty.

Jamaican Beef Pattie in Coco Bread...Yum!


I am thrilled to say we now have our very own Tastee Patties in our neck of the woods, here in Barbados and I have been eating one too many Jamaican beef Patties this week already...someone hold me back from the lovely buttery goodness of the Coco bread as well. YUM!!!!

 Talk about major flour I've consumed in the last five days. Anyway I no longer have to wait for one of my friends to send me frozen patties to bake, I can now eat them fresh each morning and evening. Some of you might be wondering what the darn is she going on about, but when you taste these babies there is no turning back. You can even experience these patties in lentils and chicken, if you are vegan or don't eat red meat... wonderful.

Well that's it about my diet, and the week is off to a great and busy start. I find myself longing to catch some wonderful sunshine each morning I drive pass the beach to go to work...a girl can dream can't she, but seriously I plan on doing something about it, one morning I'll swerve out of traffic, kick off my shoes and walk right to the water's edge. LOL.

Days To Come.

White Sandy Beaches



I can't seem to fathom its Easter in a few days. I am looking forward to some down time with my family, and since the kids are pestering my Hubs and I about renting a beach house for the long weekend, we are considering having an away from home mini holiday. 


Seriously, all I want to do is lie around and catch up on a good book, go Easter egg hunting, eat chocolate and hanging out on the beach for insanely long hours. Easter Sunday is traditionally church for our family and then we are off on a tour of the Island with a picnic basket in tow and Monday is a big, lovely street fair with lots Caribbean food to experience....like grilled fish with Plantains.... Yumm.


What are you planning ??? Whatever it may be, have a great Easter break. See you soon.
