Our girl boss in Cosmo

So y'all, our bosslady Sam was in Cosmo this month! (She doesn't know about this blog post, because she's mad shy about having her face all over the place. Too bad for her, because I quite like her face.)

It was for the Awesome Women feature, ahbviously, because she's awesome. And as though that wasn't awesome enough (so much of awesome going on here), she got to go have an actual photo shoot. I felt it was my duty to tag along and get under everyone's feet so you could all see behind the scenes footage. Don't say I never did anything for you guys.

And guys, there was so much make up. And so many shoes. It was the best, and I wanted to keep everything. As you can see, Sam was never far from her laptop, so if you ever needed proof that the woman doesn't stop working to make your Hello Pretty experience better, you've got it.Β  (So don't say SHE never gave you anything!)

After hair and make up came the most fun part: dress up!

That sparkly skirt is by KLΓ»K CGDT, and still haunts my dreams. Want. So much.

While we waited we got to hang out with some of the other ladies in the feature, and dayum, Cosmo is right - they're awesome. (Feel free to kick my in the shins if I say awesome one more time. It's totes cool, you wouldn't even see the bruise in amongst the others.)

And then all of a sudden she was a schmodel! (I won't lie, it looks hard. I wouldn't be able to put aside my immense awkwardness.)

So ja, like, go buy a Cosmo man. Not only does the December issue have Sam in it, it also has Taylor Swift and pugs in it, which basically makes it the best Cosmo of all time.

Team HP hearts you bosslady - you're the bomb diggity.

Frankie Spaces Volume 2

We were recently surprised by an awesome present in the post, all the way from Frankie magazine!

As long time fans of this gorgeous craft bible, we were soon oohing and aahing over their latest issue of Spaces in amongst the shredded packaging (think birthday girl at the gift table).

Frankie Spaces Volume 2

257 pages of beautiful spaces by super creative people - these aren't the super styled interiors you'll see in an edition of Vogue Living though. They're actual, real homes, carefully crafted with love and over time, and reflect decor as unique as the people that live there.

Each detail tells a story, which makes this all so much more special. Not only do I want to pack my bags and move in - I actually want to be besties with the owners, hang their art in my lounge, and talk about foreign cinema over hazelnut lattes on a Saturday morning. (Truly - they don't know it yet, but they're all my spirit animal and we're meant to be bff's. Every single one of them. I'm not crazy.)

They sent us some beautiful professional photographs of the issue and of some of the content that does it quite a bit of justice. Grab a cup of something and just sink into their prettiness. AND, while you're at it, there are two totally swoonworthy videos about featured homes, here and here. Watch them, really. You won't regret it.

Then once you're done mentally revamping and refurnishing your entire house, order yourself a copy - it's gigantic, beautifully printed, and basically belongs on your coffee table: http://www.frankiepress.com.au/shop/frankie/spaces-volume-two
