Rifle Paper Co inspired baby shower

Swoon!!! I'm such a huge fan of Rifle Paper Co and Anna Bond, who does all of the lovely illustrations.
When I spotted this sweet baby shower, centred around a Rifle Paper Co theme, I instantly loved it. What a beautiful idea. Lots of gold, white, peach, baby blue and mint green.

vintage + little's Halloween

Halloween was days ago now, but I haven't had time to post some of our photos from a very very great night! For the past two years we've been going to a friend's place in the city we live in, where they host a Halloween party that seems to be getting bigger and greater each year! They are very gracious hosts and I had to post a couple of pics of the night. Particularly the wonderful food - each guest brings along a dessert.

Likewise, I think Halloween in Australia seems to be getting bigger and better each year. Although its not traditionally something we've celebrated in Australia in the past, (no Halloween when I was a kid - boo!) its something that Australians seem to be relaxing about and embracing. Who doesn't want to have fun, eat truckloads of sugar and dress up?

vintage + little likes: Halloween edition

Four very cute ideas spotted online this week!

1. Pumpkin pot plant with succulents.
2. DIY pumpkin decoration. I particularly liked this one - spray pumpkin black, paint on simple white moon shape, decorate with simple gold star stickers. Voilà!
3. Mime costume.
4. Frida Kahlo costume.

Ummm ... I keep seeing bear prints everywhere. 
Is this a new trend? Is it the replacement for swans, who replaced owls not long ago? Oh and what about the deer trend? 
I think I've seen enough deer and owls for quite a while. 
Still loving the swan trend though ... AND the up-coming bear trend! ☺️

Getting ready for Halloween

I'm sure I've mentioned before that we don't really "do" Halloween in Australia. 
Or do we? I think we've been rethinking the concept in the past decade here. After all, it's fun, right? Who doesn't want a bit of fun? Oh ..... and there's the candy!!!

Here are some really cool, spooky ideas I've seen on Pinterest this week that are Halloween related. One of the things I love about Pinterest is, when there's a holiday coming up, how there's so many amazing ideas running through my feed. 

Shall we start with a really cool pic of some vintage kids, all dressed up?

Love these healthy "pumpkins" made with mandarines and celery sticks. 

These free printable masks and below them, diy chalk paint pumpkins

Healthy eating

Brought to you by Nuffnang and Mission Foods

I've been reading Pip Lincolne's fab book, Craft For The Soul, this past weekend, while at the beach, and it's been very instrumental in getting the cogs in my head turning about my health and overall well being. 
(This is a very personal post, I usually post about more impersonal things, like interiors and pretty clothes, don't I??) 

So ... like a gift from the health gods, a box of gorgeous healthy goodness arrived at my house today. It contains all kinds of yumminess from Mission Foods. They make those yummy wraps and delicious authentic Mexican food products. Perfect for a Mexican Fiesta. (I've been gathering info on/planning a Mexican Fiesta for a while now - gathering ideas on this Pinterest board). 

Today I took a step towards my health plan for myself by making these delicious Chia and Red Quinoa wraps.
Mmmm ... superfoods anyone? Yum. They're a great source of fibre and tasted great as sandwich wraps and next time i'm going to toast them and serve them with some healthy options like Tsatziki dip or home-made hommus. There are no artificial colours or flavours in these either. 

My family and I had a little picnic out in the garden and got all Mexican Fiesta inspired..
