[scrumptious berry interiors]

This morning's purple carrot porridge was completely berrylicious!
Today I thought I'd share with you a few fabulous spaces that celebrate these delicious berry hues.

This last space is my favourite of all.  I love the arrangement of art - perfection!

To make my sweet little purple carrot porridge, just grate one whole p. carrot into your oats with a handful of blueberries and almond milk.  Cook on the stove as per usual and top with a few more blueberries, goji berries, pomegranate arils and yoghurt (or coyo as I have) if you so fancy.

[converted factory in amsterdam]

I could not be more in love with the kitchen!
The beautiful oversized chandelier creates the ultimate statement against the rusticy goodness of the exposed bricks.  The wall of windows overlooking the private courtyard and the long flues of the rangehoods accentuate the grand height of ceiling so beautifully.

And the converted building love continues...

If you'd like to see more of this beautiful converted factory, stop by here.
Happy Monday everyone!

[croquet engagement brunch]

My little sister Sarah is engaged!
To celebrate this happy occasion, we threw her and her fiancé Chris an engagement party.  Rather than your typical evening soiree, we held a Sunday brunch at a sweet little croquet club.
I had a friend of mine who's an aspiring florist to create the beautiful arrangements for the brunch table and had a few family members and Sarah's other bridesmaids to help with the tasty morsels.
It was truly a perfect winter's morning here in sunny Brisbane!
The lovely Rachel Evans created these stunning blooms, complementing the mint green and yellow theme beautifully with dewy succulents and billy buttons.
Gluten Free Banana Cake with Passionfruit Icing.
(Made by yours truly)
I discovered this completely divine recipe over at My Darling Lemon Thyme - a fantastic food blog full of delish gluten free goodness.
Clockwise from the top, Sarah, me (her MOH) and her lovely bridesmaids.
Me and my bearded husband.
Long time friends Brooke and Britney looking the part for a morning of croquet.
and the happy couple.
I love these shots,
they're a bit cute.
And so the planning begins.

[fixie fascination]

Rather than folk tucking away their treasured set of wheels in the darkest corner of their garage, more and more are choosing to display them proudly in their home.
Definitely not a look suited to every home but if you're a fan of industrial décor then this aesthetic trend and incidental storage solution may be right up your alley!

[the last few months...]

Hi to all my lovely readers!
I've been so busy the last few months with my interior design course that my poor little blog has been neglected like never before.
I thought it best to give you all a quick pictorial rundown on what I've been up to the last few months.
My step sister's wedding at the prettiest little winery just north of Brisbane.
Me and my 'usband.
Me and my gorgeous mother.

 Got some bangs.
(Stupidest decision ever! Pinned it back everyday because Brisbane rained for 3 months straight!)

Weekend getaways to the "Sunshine" coast.

Ran in the Mooloolaba Triathlon.
In 32 degree heat.
In the middle of the day.

 Styled a wedding shoot for Sugar Blush Photography.
(Featured on Style Me Pretty Australia last week!!)
I'll be posting some of my favourites from this shoot shortly!

Created mood-boards galore.
 Completed my first presentation board!

A few late afternoon bushwalking expeditions.

 More beautiful Sunshine Coast getaways.

Another wedding.
(Sporting my Lady Chatterley's Affair necklace)

The occasional baking on the weekends.
(Sarah Wilson's Crunchynut Cheesescake - Sugar-free amazingness) 

 Finally completed my 3rd granny rug (started one year ago) and gifted it to my step-mum for mother's day.

Went camping in Brunswick Heads over the June long weekend.
Little did we know that they where hosting a whole-town garage sale! I think they knew I was coming.
This is me enjoying a raw avocado and lime tart - loving these healthy raw desserts! 

 And finally, here's a sneak peak from my sister's engagement brunch that I organised for her a few weekends back.
I'll be sure to share more photo's from this day too!

And that's about it!

I'm now back at college thank goodness.  I was itching to get back!
I'll be trying my very best to keep you posted with what I'm up to.
You can also follow me on Instagram @ajaneday.

Hope you all have a lovely week ahead!
Stay warm!
