Happy mid-week! We had lunch out and Henry rode his bike out on the road, as little Charlie toddled along behind him. I finally got the last of my supplies to make stock for the upcoming ‘The Journey Person‘ Market, so I will be busy stocking up ready for it over the next week. Today’s special Twelve days of sales offer is 12% off lip balms. My lovely Macadamia lip balms are Australian inspired and perfect for the summer.

A simple Christmas- inspiration

A simple Christmas- inspiration


I have been a little lazy this Christmas, I haven’t done any kind of decorating, baking or preparing yet, apart from buying gifts. I just don’t really feel that into it for some reason. I think it has just been such a crazy, busy, stressful, full on year, adjusting to the juggle of caring for a baby and toddler, that all I want is to just sit down, relax and breathe. Enjoy a cup of tea or cold drink in peace and maybe.. by some miracle have a peaceful shower, that would be nice. So once I finally get my festive on, I think I’ll be keeping it simple and elegant.

We are now halfway through my 12 days of special offers. We had a lovely wet day today. It seems funny to enjoy a bit of rain, after a very wet winter this year, but after some very hot sunny days, the rain just made a nice cool change, which just shows change is what I love most, when things are too same with no break, I get frustrated.

Eco-Friendly Cleaning and allergies

Eco-Friendly Cleaning and allergies


From the time I first fell pregnant, I became concerned with the cleaning products I used, and the chemicals and toxins I was breathing in. Knowing a new delicate life was growing inside me, made me very conscious about what I was letting into my body.

Botanical Advent- Day 2


It’s day 2 of my botanical advent, 12 days of Christmas sales. Anyone else feeling the pressure and impending doom (just kidding!)? It feels like Christmas is sneaking up on us at an alarming pace. I know a lot of people put their tress up on the first of December, but I still haven’t got to it, our house has no hint of festivity yet, I have a funny feeling it’ll all be a bit last minute this year.

FREE Kids Cookbook Helping Children Know, Cook and Love Their Food By Getting Hands-On In the Kitchen

FREE Kids Cookbook Helping Children Know, Cook and Love Their Food By Getting Hands-On In the Kitchen


Since late 2012 I have been working with author Bianca Ross on a series of Children’s books, about a special little Farmer called Herbert Peabody.

Herbie helps children know, grow and love their food through his children’s book series of vegetable patch adventures. Bianca is an ex food marketer who saw first-hand the disconnect between children understanding where food comes from. She was running research groups where children were telling her milk came from a supermarket in a bottle, and it struck her something needed to be done. There was a lot of great information about growing and cooking food for adults, but not that much for kids. And this was the inspiration for Herbert Peabody.
