After a delightful few days on Praslin Island, we departed on a slightly grey day to our next Island, Félicité.
On our final day on Praslin we went for one last stroll on the beach to take in the last memory’s of its gorgeous beaches.
Anse Lazio is often amongst the most beautiful beaches in the world to visit, and it was right next to our hotel. So needless to say we took walks there whenever we could, not that we could pull ourselves away from Raffles Seychelles often
Is there anything better than waking up to this view from your own villa pool?
As it happens, there is...
For our 3rd wedding anniversary, my husband asked me if there was anything I wanted, and my reply was "an adventure together".
Last years Easter tablescape was my favourite so far (I'm certain I say this every year...in fact I do )
I used all the pastel flowers I could find to create a pretty feminine spring inspired look. Lilac chrysanthemums, cream roses, rice flower and soft pink spray roses helped me create the most beautiful center piece
I am a total event person. Give me an Easter, Halloween, Birthday or Christmas and I always try and make it into something special.
I really enjoyed putting last years Easter theme together and thought you might like to see it too! Not only do I love the creative process of putting something together but capturing it all on camera is part of the fun
For me, my prefect Easter is spent at home with my family. I fill the house with flowers while my husband cooks up a storm (full disclosure, I am not the best cook (but I cant be good at everything right...ha ha)
Creamy Vendela roses are just perfect for a spring feel. Mix in some chrysanthemums, freesias and tulips and you have the perfect spring bouquet
For Easter I like my flowers to be of the season, and try and purchase pastel shades. I absolutely love Ranunculas, and love that its in season for Easter.

And for in the kitchen where things are a little more colourful, A mixture of daffodils, hydrangea and roses is perfect

I hope this gives you some ideas for your own Easter prep this year, stay tuned for some an Easter tablescape post later this week here
For some reason, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day... especially on a day where I can take my time over it and not have to rush. And if you have time to sit and enjoy your breakfast, you may as well find the cutest place possible right?
Having seen pictures of Elan's to die for flower wall and baby pink suede sofas I headed down to Brampton road check it out for myself.
There is no denying that Elan is Instagram heaven! It is SO pretty it hurts....just up my street! Totally lives up to its insta cuteness... with all of the things I love.
Floral wall and canape, tick, Edible flowers on your food, tick, pink sofas, tick, swan coffee art, tick!
The hardest part is resisting the temptation to eat all of those croissants
Order a coffee and something from the menu and think about ways to re create that flower wall at home (well, that's what I did)
Unfortunately, I had no insta hubbs so totally missed out on getting a shot of me in this floral setting from heaven (rolls eyes). He can redeem himself by taking me back...
I ordered the pan fried banana bread with berries and coconut yoghurt. It tasted as amazing as it looked!!! And give me swan coffee art and I am sold.
It was worth every single calorie, although probably not as naughty as it looks with all that lovely fruit and chia seeds
I had a lovely morning at Elan cafe, both the service and the food were excellent. If you in the area I definitely recommend it for a fabulous coffee, delicious breakfast and a dose of inspiration!
