A few months back I was contacted by the Stampington GreenCraft team asking if I was interested in writing an article and sharing my Bohemian shirt DIY.  I was super excited to be given the opportunity to be published along side some other great designer makers, of course I said yes!  So you can find the article in the up an coming spring 2014 edition.

This jam packed magazine has some great features to make including eco friendly home cleaners, home d├ęcor ideas, plus clothes and accessories. It truly is an Aladdin's cave of  upcyle goodness and taking reuse an re-purpose to a whole new level.

GreenCraft is a great quality publication, it puts emphasis on recreating items to make eco-chic new ones, resulting in cutting down on waste, landfill and getting makers to think outside the box when it comes to supplies.




When it comes to make up most mornings I have a "quick fix" look, as for most people it's the time of day that's super busy busy busy. I just want a routine that's easy, light, quick and something to make me look fresh as a daisy!
Currently these are my top quick fix six, they see me by nicely; to do the school run and quick errands while I'm  out.


I truly adore this stuff!  It makes instant wide awake eyes in one swoop, with a lovely light luminous sheen it really wakes up the eyes which is just the ticket for early mornings. I love how it can be worn alone or under eye shadows, such a universal primer and a must have in my make up bag.


These smell divine! When I got my first hair powder I was a bit apprehensive of using a shake powder on my hair. It's super easy and makes your hair smell so good, think of the scent of exotic lit incense sticks but in your hair (tell me who wouldn't want that!?), it leaves your hair feeling a little fresher and full of body. Perfect for in between washes or hair that need I little boost.


I'm a huge bare minerals fan and this blusher is my newest addition to my quick fix picks, it is from the up and coming collection True Romantics. The collection isn't out until February but they had a pre sale so I jumped on it and ordered the Swoon blusher. The colour is a perfect spring pink with a hint of coral, it's truly is the most natural and healthy looking blush ever. Plus it has a gorgeous rose gold coloured lid that I'm just loving, I want it all!


Such a great scrub! Just enough exfoliation to be used everyday and buffs the skin nicely,  it's super gentle and leaves my skin  feeling so refreshed and clean with out feeling stripped or dry. A little of this facial scrub goes a long way you only need a tiny amount to do the job well.


My usual foundation is the bare minerals original, but on a morning I just use this primer to get me out the door. With it being the brighting primer it adds a healthy glow and brightness to my skin with no fuss.  When I get back from drop off  I can come home and buff the foundation in to my skin and I have my base good to go.


While I don't use this every day this is for those times where the extra coverages is needed,  it's so great for under eyes, concealing blemishes and any uneven patches that need a little something. It's lovely and creamy, doesn't crease and goes on so smooth. 



So there we have it a little peek in to my daily "go to" products, this whole routine takes under 5 minuets easily. When I things aren't so busy or I know am out for the day I will spend more time and use extra products, but also there are days when a good lick of moisturiser does the trick.
I'd love to know what your "quick go to" products are?

Since being a kid I have always loved bed canopies,  I think there is something really magical and romantic about them.  They are a perfect way to hide away from the world,  dream the night away or get lost in a good book.
We have been contemplating getting one for our master bed room,  Penny has a sweet little children's version but I think mama needs one.  Mind you as if getting out of a big fluffy white cloud bed isn't hard enough on a morning! 
The beauty of them is what ever your style there is a canopy that would work for you,  whether big and full of layers or small, fine and minimal. they are a great addition to a bedroom whatever the bed size.
You can pick them up from so many places, my favourite is the Spell sahara mosquito net (which is on sale currently)  Bed canopies are pretty easy to get hold of now even eBay have a great choice of them.
What's your thoughts, do you have one on your room?







Arnhem are truly one of my favourite fashion brands, with a few of there pieces tucked away in my wardrobe, no matter what the season I always find an excuse to wear them. I would have to say my ultimate item from Arnhem is my saffron songbird kimono, its truly perfection in so many ways.

When they launched there children's collection, my heart literally skipped a beat, it makes me sooo happy I have a little girl. When the warmer weather comes I will 100% be getting some matching mama & daughter pieces for me and Penny. Argh i'm just obsessed!!

My love grows each day for pretty little succulent planters, there is always a little nook in a room that would be perfect for one of these little beauties. Recently I was lucky enough to receive an Atelier Stella planter and  now i'm even more hooked on her work,  not only do they look beautiful but they are handmade in small batches ensuring stunning unique pieces. Problem! One is never enough.



















Happy new year! 2014 is here with new adventures waiting to be had. What are your plans and dreams for the year ahead?
