You guys, there are only TWO DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS. This is your final warning to get all that shopping DONE. The finish line is in sighte, you’re SO close, can’t you just see the glass of champagne and your slippers waiting for you next to the couch on Christmas Eve? If you’re like me and you still have one or two small gifts to buy, you just know, despite you’re best intentions not to, that you’re going to end up at the shops tomorrow or Thursday anyway to get them, right?
Well, never fear, I have put together a final gift guide for last minute things you can grab while you’re out. They’re affordable, stylish and very easy to wrap and stick under the tree, so behold, my dears….
I did something a few weeks ago that I don’t normally do. I did SUCH a blogger thing and I “reached out” to a company to see if they wanted to partner up for a post reviewing their products. I know, très blogger-ish, right? But here’s the thing. When you’re browsing the internet, specifically scrolling… Continue reading ->
An introduction to this post isn’t really needed, I guess. It’s about books (duh) that would make great gifts. Some of them I’ve read and loved, some of them I haven’t, but plan to very, very soon! Okay, here we go! David Herbert’s Best Home Cooking $40 I was lucky enough to review this cookbook… Continue reading ->
The eyes are the window to the soul, right? But what about the skin around your eyes, does that say anything about your soul? Probably not. But if it did, what would it say? My eyes often look tired because I don’t get to sleep in past 7am much, and the beginnings of crows feet… Continue reading ->
Okay, since last week’s post I’m officially half way through our Christmas shopping, hooray! I’m hoping to have it all knocked over by the end of next week and I think that’s totally doable. Of course, I’m sure there will be one or two last minute gifts to purchase, but as long as the big… Continue reading ->
We’ve been home a lot the last few months, but between having Netflix for a brief six month period, and sneaking out here and there on the weekends to see a few films, I’ve amassed a few that I realised I never reviewed here. So this is kind of a brief catch-all review post. Straight… Continue reading ->
I was recently asked to decorate a cake. Not bake and decorate, just decorate. It was nice not having to worry about baking the cake and just focusing on the decorations. The request was for something simple, and now that the weather is warmer, I knew I wanted to do something with berries since they’re… Continue reading ->
Recently the kind folks at adorebeauty.com.au reached out to me and asked if I would like to try a product from their Lancôme range and I practically jumped into their website to browse immeditately. I’ve been wanting to try Lancôme anything for ages, but given that the price points are generally at the higher end… Continue reading ->
If there’s one thing I bake fairly consistently it’s banana cake and banana muffins. We never seem to consume the bananas I buy at the supermarket, so at least once a month I come into the kitchen in the morning and realise there are two bananas that I need to use immediately or throw them… Continue reading ->
Huge thanks to the lovely folks at Penguin for providing me with a review copy of this new release! I’ve had JoJo Moyes’ books on my radar since this time last year when I spotted them in Hawaii. The covers jumped out at me, and a quick scan of the blurb told me they’d be… Continue reading ->
