Plastic Free July Finds

Plastic Free July Finds

Have you heard about plastic free July? I’s an initiative to encourage people to look at the plastic they use and try and cut back on your plastic usage (or if you are really keen cut it out for the whole month).  It has inspired me to try and make some plastic swaps, and reduce our plastic usage. I am not sure if we could ever achieve a plastic free life, but the less if our lives the better we will be for it. If you want to know more, and why reducing plastic is important and ideas on how, see the official site.

Does anyone else experience this, where they feel like a certain theme or topic keeps popping up, as if there is this collective thought and without intention, somehow this topic is playing on a lot of peoples minds and almost seems to be trying to speak to you, because even though you aren’t looking for it it keeps popping up. Not sure how else to explain it.

New (financial) Year Resolutions

New (financial) Year Resolutions


So on new years day this year I had a 3 day old baby, and my only ‘resolution’ was simple to care for my tiny bundle and learn how to be a mummy of two. Now that my little man in 6 months old, and I am getting back into work and contemplating things I want to do and achieve, I thought the new financial year is a fresh start enough for me to write down my goals and get thinking about what I want to change and do and work towards.

Thirty… and giveaway winner


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.

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.

You little Beauty

You little Beauty


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.
