Akira + Jimmi | This Beautiful Baby Belly


I love photography. 
I love that light and magic can come together to permanently record a fleeting moment in time. 

I took these photos of Akira and her partner Jimmi at the Amilita launch in Byron a few weeks ago but pulled them from the Amilita post at the last minute... because I realised that they needed to stand alone. 

Life. Beauty. Love.

I'll let the photos tell the story.




What a fabulous style power-duo they are. Trio even. I have a little feeling that I need to shoot with Akira again in the next few months, so watch this space!

How do you feel about pregnancy and blossoming baby bellies? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Amber. XO

p.s. Can you tell that I love them? ;)

The Rainbow Mama on Kidspot!

Hello Wednesday :) 

I've been dealing with snotty-nosed boys and such things all day so it was a sweet surprise to see my #styletips in today's A - Z of Blogging post by the lovely Pip Lincoln on Kidspot! Yay! Yes, that's my day made now. 

S is for... Styling.

Okay, it's only a little piece but I'm all for celebrating the small moments. And this one is making me happy! Tra-la-laaaa. 

I've pasted my part below and added some photos for emphasis, but you should go read the full article... and then, add your own tips at the bottom of this post. 

Time to get your styling' pants on!



Do you take the time to style your photos or do you just SNAP? 
I'd love to hear :)

Brown Rice Stir-Fry | Healthy Lunch Idea #2


Helloooooo Lunch-Eaters!

My 2nd Healthy Lunch Idea is ready :)
BROWN RICE + QUINOA STIRFRIED
IN COCONUT OIL WITH KALE, PEAS,
AND ROAST PUMPKIN. YUM. 
And it's another brown rice + quinoa one { this combo is my new fave thing; I cook twice what I need if I make it for dinner so that I have a stash of pre-cooked protein-punch in the fridge for lunches! }

Last week I shared a salad, but this week it's something for the chillier days: a very quick stir-fry.

Kale is such a great thing. I buy a big bunch each week and appreciate its versatility. Eat it raw - or wash, chop and pop it in a pan with a little coconut oil for a few minutes, season { I added some Tamari which is a gluten free soy sauce alternative if you haven't heard of it before }, and eat! Or toss in some more veggies plus your rice mix, and you have a warming, wholesome lunch FEAST :)

What are your fave healthy lunch ideas? 
Amber. XO

p.s. I think I made it all a bit unnecessarily complicated last week. { Lol. Never ;) } so have decided to set this up as a LINK-UP! Add your link below. I'd love to see your food files :D

Amilita SS14 Launch | Byron Bay

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post, but I am starting to accept them. If you feel your brand aligns with my blog and audience please get in touch! I'd love to talk. Amber :)x


Last Friday night I attended the "Paved Paradise" Spring/Summer 2014 launch party for Byron Bay-based fashion label Amilita.

The launch featured an exhibition of photographs by the amazingly talented Carly Brown { Carly shot the dreamy Amilita SS14 lookbook in Mexico with model Ariel Beesley }, live music by Ziggy Alberts { see my busking portrait of Ziggy from a few weeks ago here }, a heady collection of creative peeps and some beautiful clothes.






Shop the look:

               


I'm going to buy myself the Coretta skirt. L-O-V-E. It's even on sale right now. Shhhhhhh... ;)

What are you wearing - or lusting after! - at the moment?
Amber. XO
