gingerbread house

24 December, 2015

I love all things Christmas. Christmas movies. Christmas parties. Christmas lights. Christmas shopping. Even Christmas stress seems  bearable.  In fact, everything seems a little bit more joyful and a lot more purposeful when you add Christmas to it.  Take Christmas baking for example. A pinch of cinnamon, a sprinkle of sugar, a cup of wholemeal flour and a healthy dose of self-denial as you convince yourself that wholemeal flour makes it totally ok to have an extra piece of fruit cake (what…

kmart addicts unite

27 November, 2015

Has anyone been to Kmart lately? Seriously, that place has upped its game. And I have jumped on the Kmart band wagon BIG time.  It’s to the point now that I may be a little obsessed.  How do I love Kmart? Let me count the ways. Take this for example. It was one of my best friend’s birthdays a few weeks ago. To find her a present, I went to Kikki K, T2, Adorne and Lush looking for something suitable. And you…

A few months ago I noticed a sign for the Mater International Women’s Day Fun Run to raise money for breast cancer. Having wanted to volunteer somewhere for a while, I decided to see if they needed help. It turns out they did, so on International Women’s Day I left home at 4.30am to get to Southbank in time to help participants register and collect their packs. It was such a great atmosphere and experience. Since then, I have received emails…

fabulous five fridays: pinterest projects

20 March, 2015

It is no secret that I love a good project. So when I discovered the incredibleness that is Pinterest just before my 21st birthday, I have to admit that I may have gone a little project crazy. A lolly bar, chalkboards made from vintage frames, bunting and up cycling jars were just a few of the many projects that had my sister and I up and visiting local flea markets at 6am every Saturday morning looking for bits and pieces…

flat pack joyride

18 March, 2015

Life has been pretty chaotic recently. I am not sure why, but I am finding that my diary is filling up before I have even had a chance to get my head around the week ahead. It’s not that I don’t have any down time to myself. It’s just that lately I have had so little down time that I have been using every spare minute I get to cook, write and generally catch up on life. Unfortunately, that has…

ikea

14 March, 2015

Ikea is such a wonderful, dangerous place. I always go looking for things I need and come out with things I never even knew I wanted. Ah, the beauty of Ikea. It’s probably a very good thing that I don’t live near the store, as I always end up coming home with a head full of ideas, a boot full of flat packs, a bag full of chocolate and a bank account not so full of money. That’s not to…

fabulous five fridays: beautiful blogs

13 March, 2015

Don’t you just love a good alliteration? I have to admit that I cannot resist the urge to add in a good alliteration at the first available chance, which is probably no secret considering the name of my blog. However, at the risk of turning this entire blog into a daily alliteration cliché (Motivation Monday, Tasty Tuesday…), I have decided to limit my reoccurring weekly alliteration blog post to Fabulous Five Fridays (because I had to have at least one…
