After purchasing and converting an old sheep and cattle station into a private guest house, just off the coastline of Banks Peninsula in New Zealand, real estate developer Mark Palmer added another farmhouse inspired villa to the ever so secluded Scrubby Bay. Surrounded by hills of tussock lies a cedar-clad, ocean front house that is completely remote, private and simply stunning. Take me there and please, do not disturb.
Justina Blakeney is a creative genius. Her botanical portraits on Instagram have ignited a Face The Foliage hashtag craze, including Erica who created her own #facethefoliage not too long ago. Her talent also caught the attention of Moda Operandi, who recently collaborated with her on a series of portraits that incorporate the online retailer’s collection of fine jewelry. Grace Jones is rocking Stephen Webster’s diamond feather earrings as eyebrows and Twiggy is donning Shaun Leane’s stunning ring sets on her ears. Just brilliant!
Cool weather isn’t too far off so it’s time for a little camel coat eye candy to get us excited for fall. Every woman should own at least one camel coat in their closet, wouldn’t you agree?
If you don’t know by now, Lauren and I are obsessed with pom poms. Discovering the almighty pom pom maker when we first started HonestlyWTF a few years ago was an absolute game changer. Pom pom birthday garlands, pom pom gift tags, pom pom luggage tags, pom pom beanies, pom pom bag charms . . . for awhile there wasn’t a single thing protected from our pom pom craze. Except pillows. After recently lusting over a traditional Moroccan blanket, adorned with giant, fluffy pom poms, I was instantly inspired. My new outdoor sofa was in desperate need of some color and fluff and adding them to a handful of pillows, with Hmong and Guatemalan fabrics I had on hand, was a no brainer.
