I’m working on something really exciting at the moment, well exciting for me and hopefully it will be received well by all of you too! To give you a hint, it’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a very long time but until now because it didn’t feel right. I won’t have you hanging on for long but I just want to wait until it’s set up until I reveal it to you!

I’ll leave you today with some flower vignettes from my Instagram feed from the past couple of months. Well most of them are vignettes; sometimes flowers are just so perfect that they needn’t anything else.

You can view more of my Instagram photos @mel_chesneau or click here. I’d love for you to follow me.

  • That moment when you find the perfect still life and it's sold. Can't tell you how this painting makes my heart sing! I'll be looking out for more work from @jude_rae . If you're in Auckland it's the perfect weather to get lost in the @Aucklandartfair
  • Breakfast here at @therawkitchen Is always a good idea! Happy weekend everyone!
  • Nature's art 💚
  • Here's to a new week!
  • Thank you everyone for your lovely comments and messages. I'm truly okay and so relieved we found it so early. I'm hoping that my story will inspire others to get checked. 🌷
  • Hi everyone, it's been a while since I wrote on the blog and some of you will be aware that life has thrown me a challenge. Here it is, I am a healthy and active 41 year old and on a routine breast screening, a very early form of breast cancer was found. After much thought and soul searching, I feel very strongly about sharing my story on the blog to what I hope will encourage women to get checked and not put it off. While I still have a bit of journey ahead of me, I have been very lucky. Early detection saves lives. ** If this is as far as you read, please respect my wishes to never mention the C word around my children or their friends. While they are aware that the doctors are fixing something, we have decided to not use the C word to protect them from unnecessary anxiety.** If you wish to read my story, you can find it on www.styledcanvas.com.

  • Earlier in the week when I was the first one through the door of the stunning @jomalonelondon Britamart boutique that day to discover and fall in love with their new Rare Teas Collection 🙌🏼 #rareteascollection
  • Love hanging out with these little munchkins. Happy Mother's Day to all the hard working Mums out there 😘🌸
  • My weekend 🙌🏼 Expect a garage sale in Auckland next weekend. Decoration, designer clothes, shoes, kids clothes and toys, plants, books, kitchen bits and bobs. I'm going to go crazy. Watch this space. #toomuchstuff
  • Beautiful flowers in the afternoon light today. Sent to me by my sweet friend Michelle @thedesignchaser . Five days later and they are as fresh as the day they arrived @bloomsocialnz ✔️ Happy Friday and weekend IG friends.
  • Self care #2. They got me at “Tea” but seriously, who can resist a visit to the @jomalonelondon boutique? I popped into the Britomart flagship store this morning to try out the new six-fragrance Rare Teas collection. The fragrance is completely different to their others and was created using a traditional infusion perfumery process. My two favourite scents for the cooler weather are the Midnight Leaf Tea and Golden Needle Tea. Tough choice but I ended up choosing the latter. The Rare Teas collection is available in only selected stores around the world, in NZ it’s exclusive to The Britomart store. #rareteascollection
  • Self care #1. I've really been focusing on looking after myself lately, mind body and soul. I arrived back from Sydney to this beautiful new hand ritual by @compagniedeprovence . The volcanic rock and cocoa butter scrub has left my hands so so soft and the hand balm lovely and nourishing. Our hands get such a workout, it's nice to give them a once a week pampering after a long soak in the bath. #compagniedeprovence #cittadesign
  • Five years ago today, our little family (with the youngest in my tummy) arrived in this beautiful country called New Zealand. Feeling very grateful to this place and its people. Whakawhetai koe Aotearoa
  • For the first time in years I played tourist in my own city. I grew up with season tickets to the ballet here. Being away for almost five years, I realised that my children haven't been exposed to this magnificent piece of architecture. I could have spent hours walking in and around the Sydney Opera House. From every angle, another work of art and picture. #jornutzon #architecture #sydneyoperahouse
  • My little people remembering fallen soldiers with a little reenactment today. Their Papi (granddad) is the best teacher and they even got to see him talk at a  service last night.  #anzacday #lestweforget
  • Can't beat salty air, the laugh of kookaburras to wake me each morning and days filled with friends and family. It's good to be home. #sydney #coogee
