Found: Extracurricular Magazine

In celebration of ‘Good Thursday’ and Easter break here is a little publication that, coupled with some bourbon, has warmed my little heart this last week.

Thanks to Rohan Anderson, Whole Larder Love, instagramming I stumbled across this beautiful publication ‘for creative folk’ that comes out of New Zealand. Every thing good comes from the South Pacific.

Extracurricular magazine is a proper treat. Courtesy of the last issue I now have grande plans to make some homebrew, homemade ice blocks (if the sun ever arrives) and a little dinosaur terrarium. (!?!)

Looking forward to the next issue ‘New Beginnings’ which is timely as I am coming to the end of a long old chapter and starting a new little adventure in the next few weeks.  You can pick up past issues and the New Beginnings issue at BigCartel.


If you want to see pretty things, have good ideas and be inspired this little magazine is what you need to get your hot little hands on.  True.

They also have a sweet blog chockas with beautiful things, ideas and artists.

Thank you New Zealand for making something so special that we get to enjoy!

Found: Moleskine postal notes

Do you remember when you used to play that story telling game in school? The one where you would each say a line in the story? The one where the boys always used to say ‘And then she died’? Well, I think this is a really cute way to write a story with someone lovely that you know. You can write a little bit and pop it in the post. They can write a little bit and pop it in the post.


You can just send someone a notebook full a snazzy thoughts, pictures and bits and pieces just because you can. Thank you Moleskine

Found: Arthur Ransome books

Since our little trip to Hay-On-Wye this weekend my husband has rekindled his love for these childhood classics by Arthur Ransome. You may know Swallows and Amazons. If not, you should.

So we have started to collect these Ransome books (because we need more books…) in the original covers, as the illustrations are so lovely! Yes, we judge a book by it’s cover.

I’m looking forward to reading these heartwarming classics this autumn as the nights start to draw in.

Found things…Wild swimming books

A couple summers ago we found these great books called Wild Swimming and Wild Swimming Coast. Since then we have parked our car in tinier than tiny woodside car parks (or roads) and walked narrow footpaths to find some of these (sometimes) hidden treasures.

We have swam in a quarry in the Malverns, found sweet rock pools and beaches that we would have never come across had it not been for these books.

I would highly recommend getting a copy.

Let the adventures begin!

Found: The Scribble Diary by Lisa Currie.

So it’s no secret that I am a bit of a doodler/scribbler and last week Frankie blogged about this sweet book, The Scribble Diary by Lisa Currie.

I love it and it is totally gorge!

I may have bought one for all the foxes, I also haven’t told them that yet! Surprise girlies!!

Buy it here on Amazon, it’s such fun!

Happy Friday friends,

This weekend we thought we share with you the pearls from our perusals, for you to browse over the weekend:

Be still my heart, the new M.Ward album is out!

As is volume three of the delicious kinfolk magazine, celebrating food, friends, simplicity… Ahhh..

I couldn’t quite find the right veil on my wedding day, but a little too late I found it here (amid a million older wedding related delights):

Wise and witty prescriptions from the good doctor:

Have a brilliant weekend!
