1st Birthday Post

I can’t believe Danni Saw This is one year old!

It has been the most brilliant 1st year of blogging, finding lots of wonderful and quirky photo’s, illustrations, designs and products to share with you all, where has the time gone?!

Amongst blogging about the things I love, it’s been a great year of learning too and finding my blogging feet! I can’t believe this was my first ever blog post, my I Saw This & Thought photography challenge, looking back why didn’t I introduce myself? Haha, hopefully you all know me by now!

I hope you all continue to enjoy my posts, as I have lots more to share with you.

Sweet Chocolate Pyramids

Posted On: Wednesday, September 24, 2014

When I came across these chocolates I knew I had to share them with you. At first glance they don’t look like chocolates, but upon closer inspection, these beautiful, pyramid chocolates are a wonder to behold…

N&S 1

Designed and hand crafted by Nectar and Stone, an Australian dessert designer, these amazing chocolates are not only tantalising to the eye, but are full of unique flavours, with colours ranging from pretty pastels to dark moody hues. They not only create chocolate pyramids, they also design wonderful chocolate shapes like pineapples and lollies.

N&S 2

The chocolates look like a work of art and I don’t think I could bring myself to eat them. Sadly they’re not available to buy over here yet, only in Australia, but that doesn’t stop me from looking at these chocolates all day, just visit their Instagram account, it will leave you wanting more.

Colour Trend Picks for 2015

Posted On: Monday, September 22, 2014

I have an exciting colour post to share with you today – just a little something to brighten up your Monday!

Over the past year Pantone have been releasing their Fashion colour report/trends for 2015, with some mouthwatering colours on offer. With many colours to choose from I have picked out my three favourites to share with you; Strawberry Ice, Scuba Blue and Lucite Green. Now without realising I have already blogged about similar colours in the past; Mint & Blue Hues and Coral Crush but these are slightly different shade, and are well, just lovely.

I don’t usually post about fashion trends, but these colours will filter down into the interior and homeware market, so you can be the first to have these wonderful colours in your home.

Pink Montage

Strawberry Ice is a cool and refreshing colour that has a warmth to it. Pantone state that Strawberry Ice is a confection colour that emits a flattering and healthy glow.

Blue Montage

Scuba Blue is a beautiful and refreshing colour, that coveys a sense of freedom and playfulness. I think Pantone have got this hue of blue just right.

Green Montage

Lucite Green is a wonderful shade, with dark mint undertones that offer a warm sense and feel to it. Similar to Lucite Blue, it also has a cool and refreshing tone, giving it a playful edge.
