I'm so thrilled to announce that one of my favourite interior design magazines, Inside Out, has mentioned Eat Drink Chic in their Jan/Feb 2010 issue! It's listed on page 36 under "Stationery blogs we're loving" alongside four other gorgeous blogs.
Thanks Inside Out!
Also, thank-you to Jessie from Follow Studio (whose incredibly inspiring blog is also on the list) for informing me! It was a lovely surprise! :)

recently gave me the amazing opportunity to design one of their windows!! This morning, my fiancé and I went down to Borders, Jam Factory to set it all up.
The window includes a handmade poster that I designed and some new holiday freebies and DIY projects that
will be appearing on Eat Drink Chic over the next couple of weeks
leading up to Christmas.
The display will be up until Christmas so if you're in Melbourne, please come down to Borders at the Jam Factory in South Yarra and check it out!
This was my first time designing a window display and I had a lot of fun! Thank-you to Borders for the wonderful opportunity! And special thanks to my awesome fiancé for all his help throughout the whole project!

Lots of cuteness in the newly opened Moomah shop. Just in time for the holidays!
Spotted at the Melbourne Design Market over the weekend- Lovely rubber stamp sets to create your own landscape imagery! Hand-crafted in Melbourne by Two Degrees. Love the use of distinctive Aussie landscapes. Would make a very unique gift this Christmas and would even be great for making your own Christmas cards or decorating gift wrap.
An exquisite, pink rose created by Zoe Bradley and available in a gift box from her online store.
Her rose garlands, bouquets and other floral beauties would make stunning and unique eye fodder at a wedding. So beautiful!
