Hi! It’s been kind of quiet around here this year, hasn’t it? My posts have been sporadic at best, which I’m fully aware of. Not sure how many people still read my blog (going by my stats I would say not a lot, disappointingly), but for anyone still checking in, I wanted to explain my absence. But first, I made a quilt!
In case it isn’t super obvious, this quilt is a floor quilt. For a baby. Specifically, the baby I am pregnant with.
That’s right – we are expecting bub number two in about three weeks! Heh, I know, I kept that well under wraps, right? Continue Reading ->
I don’t make cookies and cakes with nuts in them because my daughter has a nut allergy. But recently I was overtaken by the urge to make a really nice, soft peanut butter cookie. I do have a peanut cookie recipe in my favourite recipe book, but I wanted something super soft and chocolate-y, which… Continue reading ->
I recently did a wardrobe clean out and threw away literally every pair of sandals I own. Every single pair. They were all at least three years old or more, some of them had straps that were wearing out or broken (but the sandal itself was still wearable), and a lot of them weren’t really… Continue reading ->
Despite all the rain here in Melbourne (seriously, dudes), I’m starting to day dream about warm Summer nights where we can relax outside on the back porch and eat dinner as the sun sets and watch our daughter play in the backyard. Before we moved last year, we only had a very small courtyard space… Continue reading ->
Hey, hi, how are you? I’ve been AWOL, I know. It was unintentional and due to a number of things, mostly because we have been on and off the Winter cold, flu, and tonsillitis merry-go-round since about June. – Every cough and cold around has come home with my daughter, then she got a nasty… Continue reading ->
Resurfacing after an unscheduled blogging break to bring you the Emmy Award Fashion hits and misses! We’ve had a tough month of sickness in our house, and though I wasn’t sick as my husband and daughter, I feel very run down and exhausted. So this year’s Emmys red carpet was a welcome breath of fresh… Continue reading ->
I finally got around to seeing Ghostbusters last week and I loved it. I feel like that should just be my review: I loved it! But I know there are people out there who are faithful fans of the eighties movies, or are just plain curious to hear what the remake it like, so I’ll… Continue reading ->
I’ve been annoyed at little girl’s skirts in shops the past two Winters (and Summers, let’s be honest). They are usually about as long as the bottom of their bum cheeks, and even with tights on in Winter, they’re still too damn short for my liking, especially on my four year old with long, long… Continue reading ->
First of all, I will not apologise for the title pun. I’ve realised in the last year or so that whenever I stock up on earrings, usually at Lovisa’s three for two sales, that I tend to exclusively buy stud earrings, always in silver. I do own dangly earrings and a few pairs of hoops… Continue reading ->
Bliss hand cream $20 I know we’re in the depths of Winter because in the space of three weeks my hands have become cracked and dry, no matter how much hand cream I slather on them. I was looking at reviews of hand cream and this Bliss one came highly recommended. I already use their… Continue reading ->
