Easterfest 2014 – Day 1

Easterfest 2014 - Day 1

I have not been to Easterfest for years. Years and years actually. After today, I am left wondering why on earth not? We arrived before midday, the kids and Mr Cool made their way straight to the Kidzone while I waited to watch a forum on ‘Klout’. On the panel were Tonya from ‘The Crafty Mummy’ (my blogging gal pal, it was fun to be there with my virtual pom poms), also on the panel were Tessa Violet and Shawna {Read More}

What I Wore: Festival Fashion: Scarf Shawl

Easterfest Fashion _ Friday _ Flat Lay

Today, I have been at Easterfest, a fabulous family friendly, hipster cool music festival in my own home town. It has been years since we have been, but am thrilled to be an official ‘Easterfest Blogger’ for 2014. I decided that I needed clothes that were: a) cute b) layering friendly c) a bit hippy fresh This is my first outfit… I have to say I LOVE it… colourful, comfortable and a bit quirky with the scarf/shawl thingie…  (I will {Read More}

Last Minute Easter Decorating

Easter Decorating - FIa

Usually, I am all over Easter. I cook, I clean, I shop, I decorate. But, this year, my Easter wheels have fallen off and I am all out of ‘Easter-Mode.’ Thankfully, I have a slight hoarder bent and a creative streak. I thought I would share my ‘Last Minute Easter Decorating’ tips with you all… 1. Use what you have! I had these porcelain egg cartons back when we had chickens. Pop in some Easter eggs and you have yourself {Read More}

What I Wore: Vintage Dress & Erstwilder Brooch

Vintage Dress & Brooch FI

My beautiful friend Shelley was turning 40. Shelley is all kinds of fabulous, she is stylish, she is fun, she cooks like a chef and is into lots of the things I am into. We are firm friends who op-shop together and don’t mind at all that our husbands head off to the footy together if we can be stuck together on a couch together somewhere. For her 40th, Shelley was hosting a canapés and champagne party for her inner {Read More}

Goodbye Rainbow Unicorns

Rainbow Unicorn FI

Well… *B lets out a big breath* here I am… back again. Life has a way of sitting you on your butt and forcing you to think and think and think, doesn’t it? I had surgery (ankle reconstruction) nearly 4 weeks ago now. It has been quite an interesting time of healing and reflection and crochet. I haven’t posted much here, thanks to some fairly epic pain drugs that addled my brain. The joke around here was that I was {Read More}

Generosity – Part 1

Generosity 1

So… I have had my ankle reconstructed. You can read about it all here…  I just thought I would share how we have been faring since then. Firstly, I am in a bit of shock. I had no idea how impacting this operation would be. I know that probably sounds dumb, but I did not realise that I was not to put any weight down onto my foot. Neither did I fully appreciate how difficult it would be to get {Read More}

The Story Of The Ankle

The Ankle

So… the ankle… MY foot… let me tell you the story… It begins with a cat… Back at the turn of the century, my cat was in a fight and developed an infection above his eye. I had to take him to the vet. When carrying the cat in a precarious cardboard box into the vet clinic, I fell into a small pot hole in the grass, and sprained my ankle. It took a while to heal, but it did. {Read More}

The Panel: When Should You Start Talking About Skincare With Your Tween?

Skincare Preteens

I have had a few friends suggest I ask ‘The Panel’ about when to start a skin care regime with their tweens/teens. So, here it is! My bloggy mate Norlin from Baubles, Bubbles & Bags has written some GREAT posts on this topic… THIS one gives really great insights into how to introduce regimes to pre-teens and THIS one talks about some really great products you could try. My skincare journey is a bumpy one (pun intended). I wish I {Read More}

What I Wore: Folk Dress & Tea Stained Petticoat

Folk Tunic - Together

I am loving the ‘Boho’ look at the moment, I love the natural colours and fabrics. I found this ‘Talisman’ tunic at a thrift store a few weeks ago, it was $6. I loved the colours and the style and thought it was so bohemian. I tried it on and found it to be just a bit shorter than what I would have liked. I found a cute white lace trimmed skirt for $4. The skirt was just too white, {Read More}
