Well I made it to 30! It was a cold wet day, and Dan took Henry for a few hours, so I could quietly potter around the shops with Charlie, which was a nice change from the usual stressful shop with toddler and baby in tow. And then we rugged up back home and had some pizza for dinner. Just a simple family day, enjoying the rain and relaxing.
I have recently come across some really amazing homewares. Things that have been beautifully designed, with stunning detail, textures and uniqueness. Since I keep finding such wonderful things, I thought I would share some of it with you, plus makes it easy for me to find again too!
So this Sunday I am turning the big 3-0. It’s time to say goodbye to by 20’s and start a new decade.. the 30’s! It occurred to me the other night that my blog here has documented much of my 20s, as I started it just a few months before turning 21, and have continued to blog right through my 20s. I wondering if I will keep going right through my 30’s too! My grandma said to me she thought the 30’s were the best decade of life, as you are more settled but but still young.. so bring on the best years!
As I was adding more projects to my portfolio (it really needs finishing!! I will get there one day!) I went to the Finders Keepers site to get their web link, and found myself browsing vendors and getting lost in all the pretty businesses. (Seriously there is almost too much talent in this country, it just amazes me the wonderful things people are creating). As I lost my way through the internet wormhole of loveliness, I came across this lovely little business ‘Happy Hands, Happy Hearts‘. They make natural play dough and it comes in a recyclable jar and is oh so pretty and such a gorgeous idea.
I have just released a beautiful new lip balm range, to my Nourish and Nurture shop, inspired by Australia’s natural beauty. The new line is called ‘You little Beauty’ a range of 3 all natural, vegan, Macadamia based lip balms.
Macadamia protects, soothes, and conditions the skin/lips. Macadamia Nuts also contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids that are known to effectively provide extra nourishment and moisture for dry lips. Macadamia is rich with antioxidants and is especially high in vitamin E. It is mosturising and keeps skin/lips hydrated. It is also healing, and will benefit cracked lips because it is so similar to the oil produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands.
I wanted to whip up a super quick take away breakfast, but being too lazy to look for a recipe, and wanted to just use what I had on hand, I made up this breakfast biscuits, and by chance they turned out sooo good and taste amazing! So heres to ‘throw it in a bowl and hope for the best’ cooking, sometimes something amazing happens.
While on maternity leave I wrote my very first e-book! Using recipes from my old range of skincare products, a few new experiments and information from all the research I did into creating natural skincare I put it all into creating a wonderful, and gorgeous ebook, so that others can learn how to ditch the chemical filled cosmetics and go natural.
Guess what?? Nourish and Nurture is back!!
Nourish and Nurture began in 2015, out of a desire to have less chemicals in my life and my families. After making skin care products for myself, I decided to take it a step further and create products to sell, so that others could also use all natural chemical free products. Just days before I launched the business I found out I was pregnant with my second child. I went ahead with the launch but knew I would have to shut down for maternity leave once the baby was born.
I enjoyed the business and learned a lot and found a community and great customers, and so now that my maternity leave is over, I have decided to re launch the business. With a new line and bringing what I learned and my customers feedback into the re-launch, to create something even more wonderful.
I am starting off with a range of 3 face creams, and will later be adding some wonderful lip balms to the range.
Just like this recipe is a mash up, to create something fast and super delicious, that a busy mum can throw together (yes its a messy throw together thing), this post is also a messy throw together miss mash from a busy mum! Rather than two posts, I am giving you this cool recipe mixed in with a Charlie update!
