It's been a while since I've bought a brightly coloured duvet cover for my bed. There is nothing more pleasing then crisp white bedlinen, but this vibrant, painterly Anthropologie duvet is tugging at my heart and ultimately my purse strings...

going spotty

I don't want for much (hmmm... I think thats probably a lie!) but I want these spotty numbers from Harvest Textiles.

Bag / Leggings

I had to show you a photo of these little dudes in my parents aviary – check out his hair-do! It looks like he's wearing a toupee!!

If you could waterproof the bottom, this would be a great indoor hanging herb planter for the sunny spot in your kitchen.

fun alternative

For all you un-traditonal brides, this felt flower bouquet is a fun alternative to the traditional fresh option.

This mint coloured runner combined with white walls and floor is just so summery!
I had a quick look and they ship to NZ - tempting!!!

must see

Im not sure if there are still spaces available, but how cool would this class be? Im useless at cake decorating, so perhaps this is my chance to learn!

oh so pretty!

I wish paper cups and parties had been this pretty when I was a little girl!

Over sized knot cushions for your couch - love!

I bet this recipe smells and tastes like summer. I can't wait to try it.

Coconut Pineapple Banana Bread

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
2 large ripe bananas
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup crushed pineapple
1/2 cup coconut flakes, and a little extra for sprinkling on top

Preheat oven to 180c. Spray a little vegetable oil into each pan, line with baking paper, and set aside.

With an electric mixer, beat together the butter, sugar, coconut milk and mashed banana in a medium size bowl.
In a seperate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt, then slowly add to the banana mixture.
Fold in the coconut and pineapple.
Spoon into pans and top with coconut. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until skewer, inserted in centre, comes out clean. Allow to cool a little on a wire rack, then enjoy!

>> I made this cake in the weekend. It was super easy and delicious! 
My only comment is that it took longer than 30 minutes to bake - more like 50min to 1 hour. But that might just be my oven :)
