Friday's Fancies and a Giveaway

Happy friday everyone! I'm really excited about today's post. The wonderful team at Boticca has kindly allowed me to select an item from their site as a giveaway for you! There were so many pieces that I loved but in the end settled on some arm candy (who doesn't love arm candy right?).

I wanted a piece that felt timeless yet modern and at the same time dainty enough to wear everyday. I think this Madamoiselle Felee Love bangle ticks all those boxes. The inspiration behind this piece is taken from the iconic 'I Heart New York" t-shirt. I love the feminine ribbon enclosure paired with the delicate lettering. Based in Paris, Aurore Francois is the designer behind Madamoiselle Felee. She describes her vision as "My universe is the search of beauty in simplicity...". I cannot wait to send this beauty to one of you. More details below.

For details on entering this gorgeous bracelet please scroll to bottom of the page. Winner will be announced next Monday and is open to international readers. And now, back to my regular Friday's Fancies post. Here are some moments this past week that made me smile.

I was pleasantly surprised one morning when I opened up a carton of eggs to find a dozen happy faces smiling back at me. They were almost too cute to crack open. 

The Little Miss has developed a newfound obsession with Hello Kitty. I may or may not be encouraging her with a plethora of merchandise. What can I say, the kid in me just loves all this kawaii-ness.  

The quintessential Aussie meal- grilled lamb chops or meat pops as I like to call them. Super easy to prepare, easy to eat and finger lickin' good, it's a win-win-win.

Although there's still a slight chill in the air, spring has officially arrived in Australia. I'm looking forward to sipping coffee in the open air, visiting farmers markets, the smell of new blooms and of course the Spring Racing Carnival (Melbourne Cup day) in November. 

The kids and I enjoying a rare bout of sunshine this past week. We spent it by the river eating ice-cream while watching street performers. 


Enter to win the gorgeous Urban Love bangle by Madamoiselle Felee sponsored by Boticca. Winner will be emailed and also announced on Facebook on Monday September 24th. This contest is open to international entries.
