Christmas Style with The quintessential Magazine

Nov 26, 2013

Styling: Glen Proebstel, Photography: Sharyn Cairns
Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas over at THE quintessential MAGAZINE HQ. I love Christmas so much - the decorations, the food, the holidays, time with family, and just the feeling that the year is coming to an end and a fresh new one awaits across the time border into January. This year I am embracing all things Christmas and really getting into the spirit in my heart and home. A first stop for inspiration is always here. In the sixth edition of THE quintessential MAGAZINE, the amazing and inspirational duo, stylist Glen Proebstel and photographer Sharyn Cairns, bring to life the most beautiful collection of vintage finds from my favourite Balmain store quintessential duckeggBLUE. Rustic chopping boards, the smell of fresh Christmas trees, natural linens, twine, and a stack of vintage suitcases - these are just some of the  things that evoke such beautiful memories of Christmas. I am sure this will give you a little inspiration for your Christmas styling at home, a little touch of nostalgia and a lot of character. Be sure to jump across and check out the online magazine for plenty more ideas...after all there is only five more sleeps until December.

Afternoon Tea with Kinfolk Magazine Part #1

Photos by  Tealilyphotography

Welcoming Kinfolk Magazine to Australia -  afternoon tea at the home of Supply Paper Co for the Sydney media launch, hosted by Eat Read Love and  Blog SocietySome days you just feel really lucky and happy to have followed down a certain path. In the three years I have been blogging Kinfolk magazine has been a huge source of inspiration to me. Kinfolk is all about celebrating small gatherings. Bringing together communities, sharing with fellow creatives and like minded artists. On the eat read love journey I have made some beautiful friends and found what I call my 'creative soulmates' along the way. (You know who your are!!) So when Luisa Brimble told me she was bringing the Kinfolk team to Australia and asked if Jaclyn and I would like to host the afternoon media launch of course there was only one answer. A big YES! Sharing the love and planning anything with Luisa, Jac and Mario (from Mario's Kitchen) is always a treat. 

Trish from Tealily Photography has captured the beautiful afternoon spent welcoming the gorgeous ladies from Kinfolk Magazine to Australia - such an honour to meet Kinfolk Community Manager Julie Pointer and Co-Founder and owner Katie Searle-Williams - you are truly so humble and clever and it was such a pleasure to spend a few days with you both. Thanks for your time and generosity. Loved catching up with you also Lisa Madigan, Nadean Richards and of course rock star knitter Jacqui Fink.

We had such a brilliant afternoon at Jessie's home in Manly. The rain didn't keep anyone away! A huge thank you to all of our guests and partners for being part of this day. A special thanks: Catering by Mario's kitchen. Venue at the home of Jessie James from Supply Paper Co. Photos by Tealilyphotography Flowers by Jardine Botanic Floral Styling, Wine by Gilbert by Simon Gilbert.
