Indoor plants for your office

Liven up that work or home office with a few indoor plants that will be hard to kill (I know, it’s still possible!). These plants are pretty good in low light, don’t need a lot of love, will clear the air, plus bring you good vibes… Peace Lily A nice colour and leaf shape with […]

Hang a DIY tapestry

A couple of weeks ago I picked up this huge piece of canvas from a Facebook marketplace. It was already painted with some pinks/grey/black. It measured about 1.5m x 1m and was only $20. That’s definitely a bargain! You can buy unstretched canvas from craft stores too so if you’re on the hunt for a […]

Stunning Sunday: Country-meets-coast

This cosy and welcoming home caught my eye this week when looking through the real estate pages. It’s currently for sale and is located in Flinders, south of Melbourne (on the Mornington Peninsula). I chose it because I am always in love with any home with weatherboard exterior, timber floors and white walls. I love the […]

How to grow a healthy rubber plant

The rubber plant has won my heart. It’s becoming my favourite indoor plant. It’s better than the fiddle leaf if you ask me! Big call I know, but look at those leaves! They are thicker, more defined in shape and the colour is stunning. The leaves don’t droop or become tattered like a fiddle leaf […]

Bored or Board

It’s already started… “I’m bored!” Of course, it has. You hearing those words in your house too? Drives me bonkers! It’s not for lack of stuff around them… it’s more because they expect entertainment to be provided at all times. They have 2 brothers so you’d think they’d be able to find something to do?? […]

Stunning Sunday: Luxury Living

Hi there! It’s time for Stunning Sunday again and look at what one of my readers sent me… this magnificent home is like a fairy tail… The home is located in Hastings, Victoria. The gardens are jaw-dropping! A one hundred and twenty square (approx.) reproduction of ‘Oak Alley’ a historic mansion located on the Mississippi […]

The camping trip

Morning! So the New Year celebrations are over and I’ve returned home to start thinking about the year ahead… We’ve just had 3 nights away camping. Not glamping, but serious camping. Not sure I really loved it though! It was dusty and windy and there was no water, electricity, toilets or showers so it was […]

Everyday Gratefuls for 2014

Want to join in for 2014? Let me share with you what I’m going to do… My lovely friend Emma initially gave me this idea. She started writing something she was grateful for every day on her private Facebook page (I mentioned it here too). I became addicted to reading them. I waited each day […]

Owning less

I am an organiser. I like things to be neat and ordered and I am not a hoarder. Husband calls me ruthless 😉 I have this thing about one thing in and one thing out. I realise that after a while I need to sort through and dispose of things in my home. Especially after […]

Filling in the days

 ♥ I have not folded a piece of washing since Tuesday. This means my bedroom floor is full of clothes and we’re grabbing them from there. ♥ The kids haven’t had a proper lunch in days – just grazed. ♥ I have eaten ham and pavlova for lunch and dinner since Christmas. ♥ I’ve packed […]

My family Christmas

It was a lovely Christmas Day at my house yesterday. I had 30-something people for lunch and everyone chipped in and helped, so it went smoothly! We even managed to get a family photo… it’s not often we get those! My brother has been overseas for almost 2 years so it was good to see […]

Take the time to do nothing…

Hi there! Thanks for popping in today! How’s the Christmas hoo-hah treating you? Ready to go, or feeling a little overwhelmed? I will be happy when it’s all over. It feels like it’s been going on forever! I can’t wait to RELAX. I have a habit of doing everything quickly and full-on. I don’t like […]
