[retail] club monaco | belgium

Club Monaco has always been a staple to my closet. I am loving their updated look - it's very personal, interesting and I never feel overwhelmed by too much product. Shopping in their store is like being in your own personal closet! This location is in Belgium!

[guest post] style + interiors

The lovely and talented Debra from Dustjacket 
has put together a delightful combination of high fashion and interiors. 




I love fashion and interiors, so I thought this guest post was the perfect opportunity to combine them both!

As soon as I saw these photographs, they looked like a matching combination... All exude a subdued elegance, with a glamorous undertone. The colours are beautifully understated and I'm loving the pale grey, silver, charcoal & white.






... and how stylish are Olivia & Johannes!

Thanks for having me over Sara

delicious rock candy

This sugary treat is delicious at any age. Dip your lips in sugar and dress yourself in crystals. I have found myself loving mineral jewelry these days and it reminds me of the rock candy treats I loved as a child. Yum!

luscious green gardens

I have been in the garden daily watering the plants to keep them looking luscious and green. 

Tip - don't water the leaves or petals in direct sunlight, it hurts the plants!

wooden rackets

I have always adored the game of tennis, there is something so simplistic yet exciting when watching a match. You truly get caught up in the game!

take time to relax

Always make sure you take time for yourself to relax. Enjoy the cool breeze, the waves and the sand beneath your feet.

lox on a bagel

Go to your local farmers market and pick up fresh produce to create a tasty sensation. The watercress is so flavourful with the sliced organic tomatoes, soft white cream cheese and thin pieces of lox. To complete, squeeze a fresh lemon overtop!

decorating with maps

Decorating with maps can add a very personal touch to any room especially if it is a place that holds great meaning to your family. Since they can take up a large area on a wall, try spacing them out amongst a few frames! The maps below have added such a sophisticated look to the rooms!

blue on stoney lake

For generations my family has been enjoying great summers at Stoney Lake. There are so many great activities such as sailing, tennis and canoeing and lots of amazing people from all over the world. This place truly is a unique and wonderful community.

Dee Dee Taylor Eustace has built a vibrant blue cottage overlooking the great big open waters of Stoney Lake. While they were building I was always so intrigued by stunningly large windows, the bright blue exterior and glistening tiled columns on either side of the cottage.

Stoney Lake truly is a delightful place to visit - I do caution you, there are lots of rocks so be careful while boating!
