Turning 40

I decided to sneek away on the weekend and let turning 40 pass by quietly.
Not that I was worried about it, as they say life starts at 40.
But with all the building chaos in our life it was the easiest option.

We stayed at Peppers Salt resort and Kingscliff, lovely.

Hubby has promised our Ruby that he will buy an apartment there
when we win the lotto, she would move in in a heart beat.

My Mum and Dad came to stay with us for a couple of nights and 
my Mum and I snuck off for a few hours and ventured down to Bangalow.

What a little hidden treasure.

Completely fell in love with a shop called Island Luxe.
Apparently they have opened up another store in Byron Bay

I have misplaced my camera so have borrowed a  pic from Driftwood Interiors.

The dress on the stand is hand printed in Silk, completely Divine.
Having a background in textile design it caught my eye and as soon as my
little man passes the stage of rubbing messy fingers on my
 clothes I may go and buy one of her pieces.

I will get back to you on the designer , Mum wrote it down and am going to
do some research on her.

They also carry the Lee Mathews Label, which I have seen pop up in a few shops lately.
I worked for Lee for a while sewing and a little pattern making before I had my little man.
Such beautiful clothing.

The house is moving along quite quickly now, and alot of my spare time is being 
taken up rushing around organizing all the details and purchasing bathroom things
and lighting etc.

This is the last lot of photos I have taken but more has been done so 
will get down there this week to take some more ( as soon as I find that camera)

Is any one good at Bathroom Design out there, need to make final decisions on the
bathrooms today and having trouble..  Ahhh!!!
Too much pressure.

Have a great Day

  1. Mekaela, it is looking fantastic. I love the look of how that back deck is shaping up. My only advice on bathrooms is get taps that come out from the walls so you don't get the water/grime mess around the base of the taps which eventually happens. I did this in my bathroom and love it. Hope that helps! ;-)

  2. Sorry, forgot to wish you a Happy 40th Birthday and you chose a lovely spot to celebrate. Glad you had a nice few days. ;-)

  3. Happy Birthday! Wow, it looks like a wonderful getaway :)
    Your house is coming along really well. It must be hard being so patient, waiting for it to be completed so you can all move in :)
