So today's five is beach inspired!

Friday Fives... Potential Asian Holiday Spots!

Happy Friday all! How has your week been?

With Gabe turning two in June of this year (cue the cliches of, "Where has the time gone!", "They grow up too fast!", etc.) we've decided that our focus is to save save save and try get away for a family holiday to Asia.

As all you mums of toddlers will well know, when they hit 2 you have to start paying airfare for the little ones so we're trying to take advantage of the discount!

I travelled a lot in Europe with my family when I was little and many of my childhood memories are of those trips. My dad worked really hard when we were little with my mum essentially running the ship solo with all the shopping, cooking, cleaning, netball matches, early morning swimming training, etc. How she did it I will never know! So holidays were a great time for us all to have quality time together.

We want Gabe to see as much of this beautiful world we live in as possible. So we're strapping on our backpacks and going on an adventure!

I came across this FAB site, My Little Nomads. It's about a father of 2 who gave up his Assistant VP job at a Fortune 500 company to be the primary caregiver for his sons. The family have travelled the globe extensively and he's posted his suggestions on where to go and what to do. They are a real inspiration and say that travelling with kids is even more amazing than without.

Here are 5 potential destinations... Would LOVE any recommendations you might have!

Friday Fives... Cushions

My sofas are in desperate need of some new cushions! Here are some great ones I've had my eye on!

I just love this new Melbourne based company!
A little controversial, I know. But it says Syd is better than Melb on the reverse!
Have a great weekend everyone!

New font love

Happy New Year all! Hope everyone had a great break. I'm in the middle of getting the studio organised for the new year. Lots of new projects so need to be super organised in my little space!

I'm currently working on wedding stationery for a lovely client and have just fallen in love with this new font! I love how it has that classical feel but in a very free way. The options are just endless! May take a while to master it.

I hope the client love it as much as I do!
