Interrupting my break to bring you these gorgeous products by Aussie Company Maine Beach! I discovered them yesterday while indulging in a little retail therapy (as you do!!) and I can vouch for the fact that this range is truly divine.
Main Beach is a range of body care products such as bath gels, moisturizers, lip balms and soaps available in four collections – Organic Ligurian Honey, Kangaroo Island Eucalyptus, Organic Macadamia and Organic Olive Oil. They all smell amazing and the exquisite embellished packaging is just next level.
What a beautiful gift for someone special… or yourself!!
Have you heard? Mister Moss has stemmed into homewares!
From the makers of those amazing hanging plants bundled in bright string comes a new, equally colourful range for your home. The debut range is made up of rugs, planters and stools designed by Jenna Spence, who is the founder and senior designer of Mister Moss. The new homewares range captures that same sense of fun and vibrance that we have come to associate with the company, incorporating plenty of colour, geometric prints and clever design concepts.
My favourite pieces are the stool which can also be turned upside down to create a planter, how clever is that?! It is available in four different patterns in a whole rainbow of colour choices. But the side table and coat stand are my absolute picks of the bunch, more of a minimal, Nordic design style then the rest of the collection they just ooze class and sophistication. LOVE them!
With prices starting at just $32 I suggest you pop on over to the Mister Moss website and get shopping!
My current creative crush is Brisbane based artist Matt Stewart.
Matt is a self-taught artist that creates amazing street art style works using a combination of mediums from aerosol cans, acrylics, charcoal and pencil. All his works are edgy and raw, but I love the pops of bright colours he brings to some of his pieces!
Matt’s artworks have now morphed into various other incarnations, he has designed a series of wallpaper patterns for Wallpaper Republic, smartphone covers for The Dairy, or you may spot one of his many corporate murals around Queensland in places such as NOVA 106.9 FM Brisbane or the Novotel Brisbane to name just a few. Impressive stuff!
I personally discovered Matt’s work through Fenton & Fenton, who stock some of his large artworks as part of their curated collection. I just LOVE that first Indian girl artwork!
If you are looking for some fun wall art for your nursery or child’s room, but are working on a budget then you absolutely must check out the range by May and Belle!
How cool are these new super hero themed prints?! Better yet they also cost a super price of $27! Say whaaat? Yay!
Or if your more the pooch lover you can’t go past these too cute for words dachshund prints by Lisa Bengtsson available in Australia through Norsu Interiors. Twelve variations of pooch perfection right there to choose from and each print is just $25! Ker-Ching!
Mrs Peterson Pottery is a Blue Mountains based business that create some very divine pieces.
A stunning range of hand-made porcelain jewellery and homewares that have me smitten with their charming irregularities, wonky forms and cute impressions. I really am a sucker for anything that shows the mark of the maker and the process it is created with!
Tell me I’m not alone, aren’t they just beautiful?
