Happy weekend + links

Welcome to December lovelies. The first official day of summer was ridiculously hot in Sydney, like 37 degrees hot, so it was hard trying to keep cool today. This time of year means Christmas parties, drinks and overdue catch ups, so I feel a bit like this weekend is the calm before the storm. I still have loads to do before the end of the year, but I'm also eagerly awaiting the arrival of 2013. So I'm resolving to be as organised as possible this month so I can enjoy all of craziness of the holiday season. 

On to some rather exciting news... I'm thrilled to let you know that I have joined the Life InStyle team as a guest blogger and my first post is now up. You can take a peek here. I'm in amazing company with the other bloggers this year so I encourage you to hop over and visit the Life InStyle blog to check them out.

Here a few of my favourites from this week...

+ Garance Dore has opened an online boutique selling her famous and very lovely illustrations.

+ A very exciting announcement from Net-a-Porter is that they will soon be launching a print edition of their magazine. This is going to be good.

+ I loved Jaimi Brooks' super pretty home tour over on the Glitter Guide

+ The Design Files second Open House is on this weekend in Melbourne at a beautiful home in Windsor; I would have loved to have been there but will have to rely on the website and the recaps to follow.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  10. Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
    to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
