Shop: Botanical Charts

Thursday, 17 July 2014

In today's edition of things Soph is obsessed with, I give you botanical charts. I quite like the look of wall charts and I think I'm that far out of high school that they don't remind me of science classrooms. Although most of my high school science memories (biology only, chemistry can GTFO) seemed to involve hi-jinks so it wouldn't be so bad if they did. Whether you prefer cutesy illustrations or vintage reproductions, these botanical charts would look much better displayed in the home than in a classroom.

Wear: Floaty Tops + Floppy Hats

Tuesday, 8 July 2014

It may be winter, but it's barely sweater weather here in Queensland. The mornings and evenings are chilly at best, but the days are still full of sunshine and clear skies. Which is quite excellent as it means that I can still get away with wearing lightweight, summery tops like this lightweight number from Front Row Shop. Now, while my wardrobe flip flops between minimalist basics and over the top prints, one thing you wouldn't expect to find in the mix is a floaty, bohemian-inspired top. But for some reason I was drawn to this top. Maybe it was the boxy cut and subtle cut outs that sealed the deal. Or maybe it was all the Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks records I've been listening to lately. Either way, team it with some classic blue denim and a floppy hat and you're good to go (your own way).

Decorate: Arro Home

Thursday, 3 July 2014

I've long been a fan of Beci Orpin's work so when I heard that a homewares range was in the pipeline, my inner homebody squealed with excitement. Arro Home launched earlier this week and it doesn't disappoint. The designs are in keeping with Beci's aesthetic and feature her signature use of colour and pattern. I have so many favourites I don't know where to begin! The debut collection is currently available for pre-order via the Arro Home website.

Love: 'Toute la Chance' Necklace

Monday, 30 June 2014

In a previous post I mentioned that I visited the Molten Store Pop Up Trove the other weekend. Molten Store stocks a lot of great statement jewellery but these days my jewellery preferences err on the more minimalist side of things. Luckily, Molten Store also carry quite a few delicate pieces like this 'Toute la Chance' necklace. The wishbone pendant is pretty cute and the minimalist design makes it a great everyday piece of jewellery. This design also comes in gold and rose gold, and they're available to purchase either at the Trove or online.

Make: Cakes I'd Like To Eat

Wednesday, 25 June 2014

June seems to be a month full of birthdays. There are family birthdays and birthdays of close friends. Every day I'm met with birthday reminders on Facebook or see on Instagram that it's a cyber buddies' birthday. And at the end of the month there's MY birthday (insert all of the confetti emoji). Birthday celebrations have always been my favourite because birthdays = cake. While there's less of an emphasis on cake and parties as I get older, that doesn't mean I'll forgo them entirely. Sure, the celebrations might become more low-key but the cake still has to stay. Even if it's a cheap supermarket bought mud cake. So, to celebrate the month of cake, these are just some swoon-worthy cakes that I wouldn't mind having a slice of.
