Monday Mix Up | New Online Finds & Build


I have so much to share with you right now, that I'm kicking off the week with a post full of online discoveries I hope you'll love as much as I do! 

I received a delightful box of treats last week from Happy Little Poppets, the brand new baby care range by the NZ Skincare Company. The cute packaging won me over straight away, as did the inclusion of a bag full of smarties (yum). Candy aside, the products themselves are 'spot' on when it comes to their use on fragile young skin. Created using the gentlest ingredients possible like manuka honey, calendular oil and my personal favourite, calming lavender oil, they are designed to nourish and protect skin naturally. 

Kind to baby and the environment, the range includes All Over Baby Balm, Handcrafted Soap, Hair & Body Wash, Moisturising Lotion and Nourishing Baby Oil. To find out more, visit the Happy Little Poppets website and Facebook page.

If you haven't yet discovered Perch Home, the beautiful NZ online homewares store, then you're in for a lovely surprise! Founded by Helle, who is originally from Denmark, I'm thrilled to have had Perch Home recently come on board as a sponsor. Perch offers a diverse range of products from many sought after European brands such as House DoctorBloomingville and Orla Kiely, to name just a few. 

Currently I have my eye on the gorgeous new range from ISAK, by graphic designer and illustrator Sandra Isaksson. Unmistakably Scandinavian, I love the Birchwood Leaf Tray and Set of Cups, which can be also be used as storage jars. To see the full range and to shop online, pop over here. For product news and updates, make sure you 'like' their Facebook page

Having first introduced you to the beautiful linen bedding by Cultiver in this interview with founder Nicolle Sullivan, I'm very excited to tell you about the recent addition of a new colour range.  How inviting do these pastels look? The hard part is deciding which one. See the full collection, including their incredible range of rugs over here

Our friends over at MintSix have just added two new product lines to their already fabulous mix. First up are the very cool Billy Heckenberg Cushions, by Sydney-based designer Madeleine Duggan. Inspired by her love of New York, the gorgeous graphic designs are digitally printed onto a canvas linen blend fabric, and come in a range of monochrome and bright colours. Guaranteed to add a striking and unique touch to your home, all cushions have a signature corner tag and are finished with a large metallic zipper. Pop over here to check them out.

When Talia of MintSix said she was drooling over the Kilim Rugs when they arrived, I can understand why. Having coveted them for such a long time, they are thrilled to finally have them as part of their offering. See the full range here.  

I first gave you a taste of one of my fave online stores and sponsor, Ten Things with the Sokeri Cushion that I included in my Home Build | Living Room Inspiration post. I can't tell you how happy I am to finally have it on display in our new home, and I've received so many compliments already. 

With a range of lovely products on offer, the newest addition to the Ten Things collection are the stunning Warang Wayan range of wooden pieces. Handcrafted out of Balinese Teak, I love the Japanese style of the products which include the Small Round Bowl & Miniature Spoon Set, Small Oval Bowl and Scoop Set

Alongside the gorgeous homewares, you'll find unique accessories including bags and jewellery. I'm a little bit in love with the Triangle Trio Necklace right now. Hand made by LA-based Nikki Montoya, the pendants are wrought in bronze and suspended along a fine 14ct gold fill chain. Shop online here

Lastly, here are a few instagram pics of the house taken last week. The living area is starting to take shape with a new TV unit, and the highlight, getting the String shelf from Bob and Friends assembled (with the help of hubby). The Fiddle Leaf got a new new pot and now just needs some more plant friends! The dining table came together nicely, allowing plenty of space for that bench seat I'd like to add in later on. The trestle legs are from Trees Furniture and the clever guys at Trestle Union made the table top. I can't wait to install the pendant lights and add in a rug. 

With it being school holidays there hasn't been a lot of spare time and I'm trying to be patient until we get around to hanging the artwork. In the meantime, I decided to take a quick snapshot of my beautiful Kristina Krogh print from The Wooden Horse, and X art by Jane Denton
