Friday's Fancies

Happy Friday! Hope everyone's been having a wonderful week. Mine has been eventful to say the least. This week I discovered that if your iPhone accidentally ends up in the washing machine it may not necessarily be the end of your world. Mine went through an hour of soak, wash and spin and amazingly came out alive. That's right, you heard me! After a day of charging, my iPhone miraculously came back to life, even my sim card was still operational. Talk about value for money! Here's a look at some of the other less eventful things that went on this week. 


Forget Pinterest, there's so much beauty in the mundane, one just has to open their eyes to see it. I cannot begin to describe how happy I get whenever I come across beautiful little details hidden amongst the everyday. It's little surprises like that, that lifts the human spirit. 



I bought my very first pair of Karen Walker sunnies back in 2004 and ever since then I've had a soft spot for her line. Enter 2012, the latest addition to my KW collection these quirky black, white and fluro yellow cat eye sunnies. When my mum first saw these she thought I was wearing a pair of movie theatre 3D glasses. I guess they're not for everyone. What do you think? 


Isn't everything so much better when it comes in little wooden crates? I came across this adorable vegetable stand at a local farmers market. And even though I wasn't in need of any root vegetables, the allure of the wooden crate was enough to draw me in and empty my pockets.  




This was how we spent last sunday. I think the girls were on that hammock for a good hour. Talk about low maintenance. 



Imagine biting into a delicious fresh baked pain au chocolat, except instead of chocolate you bite into a melted slab of toblerone! My sister introduced me to these delicious little pastries this week and I am hooked! Best part is, they are readily available for purchase at any supermarket. Well, that is unless they're sold out which happens more times than none.

I love coming across unexpected things too- and I would so paint my front door a bright color like that if my husband would allow it, but probably not going to happen! AND O.M.G. those Karen Walker sunglasses look amazing on you!! Congrats on the purchase- I love them. Your mom must be so funny! I don't see the 3D glasses but moms/grandmothers always see things that we younger ones don't. And how cute are your girls in that hammock? I hope my kiddos are that chill!
