Mason jars are so hot right now – my love of them is no secret. I decided to get crafty this afternoon and glam up some jars to use around the house. Was so easy, here's what you'll need if you want to give it a try yourself.
Jars or vases
Glitter (I'm digging gold lately so went with that)
Glue (something that dries clear – I used Mod Podge which works brilliantly)
Over the hill, down the windy road. Welcome to a little part of Mr Abel Tasman's greatest discovery.
The adventurer in me set out to explore this wonderful part of the world, tucked into the northern coastline of New Zealand's south island. This is Kaiteriteri. Golden sand meets clear bluey green water. I'm told this little spot is packed in the summertime and I can see why. This is the kind of place that reminds me of my childhood beachside holidays..You just can't help but smile, breathe in the fresh air and forget any worries you had prior to arriving.
Spring is settling in, the days are getting longer. The sun is shining and each day I get more excited about this wonderful time of year. Here's a list of spring and summer inspired things I am lusting after this month.
I'm a huge fan of cream based makeup products and blushes are no exception. I've been a long time user of Stila's Convertible Colour but there was only so long I could ignore all the hype in the beauty industry surrounding Illamasqua's Cream Blush in Rude.
I am the daughter of two Melbournians, but have never lived there myself. After my parents married, they moved to ‘God’s Land’ (that would be Perth according to my dad) where I was born and raised. All of mum’s family remain in Melbourne to this day so lucky for me, over the years I have had plenty of reasons to visit and people to stay with.
When you think of kale, do you think of that leafy green cabbage like vegetable that you want to like because it's so healthy, yet you can't because it's just so… unappealing? Well boring it is no more! There are many varieties of kale that are grown for their beautiful ornamental leaves. Think vibrant pink, lavender, red, blue and violet and brilliant white and cream.
Sometimes it's the little things that can make the biggest difference. Next time you're having a part-ay, think outside the square a bit and consider doing things a little bit differently to give your event the wow factor. Attention to detail goes a long way.
Nestled quietly up in the Perth Hills lies a quaint little cider house, Core Cider. Presenting itself as one of those fabulous little eating and drinking holes you would expect to find in the Swan Valley, it was a welcome change to instead head in the direction of Pickering Brook for a lazy weekend luncheon.
