Current mood (feat. West Elm Acrylic Tray)


I was sent this West Elm Acrylic Tray to style a few weeks ago and finally managed to get a chance to do a quick snap of  it this afternoon. Ideally, I would have liked to frame this shot a bit better but I'm kind of running a bit behind schedule today (make that everyday!).

The tray has a simple and minimalist design and it's clean lines fits perfectly with my style aesthetics. Today I'm using it as a display tray to showcase my current mood -- a neutral palette. This palette has easily become my absolute favourite to work with. So calming and still, it's almost zen-like. 

Products, in no particular order:

Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser: Shower time luxury. I don't use this everyday but on days when I need the extra pick me up, this is my shower gel of choice. It has a delicate, sweet rosy scent that's so soothing, especially after a long day at work. 

Tea Forte Tea: Have you ever seen teabags any cuter than Tea Forte?! My husband and I used these in our 'thank you' giftboxes for the guests at our wedding anniversary a couple of years back. For those of you in Australia, you can order Tea Forte from

Anne Leibovtiz At Work: What can I say, this lady is genius behind the camera. She's one of my all time favourite photographers. Another favourite of mine is Tim Walker. Both very different in style but both create equally inspiring work.

Fujifilm X100: An oldie but still a goodie. Although, I haven't been using it all that much recently. My eyes have been glued to the back of my dslr.

Byredo Gypsy Water: Perfect in every way. Love the scent and the package design. Minimalism at its best! I wear Gypsy Water mostly on cooler days. My favourite Byredo scent is still Blanche followed closely by La Tulipe.

Magaret Howell: I did a bit of damage to my wallet when I was in Japan. Everything in the boutique was just oh so perfect!

Mixed Rice: We consume a lot of rice at my home and lately we've adopted a healthier approach by adding half a cup wild mixed rice and grains to one cup jasmine rice. 

MT Washi Tape: Addicted!!! 


Innarah Skincare Review

I was sent a few products from Innarah a couple of months back and I have been using their products in conjunction with my current skincare regime. I'm so in love with the smooth velvety texture of the Treatment Creme - a little goes a long way! I liken this product to La Mer Moisturising Creme which has been a staple in my skincare regime for many, many years. And for the first time, there's a close contender! Another two of my favourites from this range is the Treatment Serum and Oxygenated Moisture Oil. These two bottles are like liquid gold for my dry and sensitive skin! I use them at night, alternating between the two and have noticed a significant change in the overall clarity of my skin. It's a boost of hydration that my skin craves for every now and then. 

With the colder months approaching, I'm glad to have included these Innarah products as part of my skincare rotation and if you're keen to find out more information about these products, please visit their website
