I Only Let go of One Thing

A few days ago, I decided to finally get rid of a book I’d been holding onto for about six months (probably more if I’m honest but time goes so quickly it’s hard to keep track). I tried a number of times to sit and read this particular book, but couldn’t seem to get into…

Our Budget Bathroom Renovation

Apparently in Australia, the average bathroom renovation costs upwards of $10,000. I’m talking the entire gut job, replace everything, the works. And that’s a small bathroom. My husband and I live in an older home (30 plus years to be more exact) and the bathroom has for some time needed to be completely redone. Everything…

At Home Beauty Substitutes

Beauty products generally come with a high price tag attached. Moisturisers, cleansers, exfoliators, shaving, waxing, nailpolish. You name it, we, and women in particular spend a lot of money annually on these types of self care and pamper products. I feel like a lot of the expensive products on the shelf can be made at…

A Disco Party

Last night I went to a disco themed party and you know what that means – dressing up. A dress up party, depending on the theme, often involves having to purchase an item of clothing or an accessory in order to fit in with said theme, because let’s be honest and say that a lot…

Recipes with Long Ingredient Lists

I don’t know if I’m just being lazy, feeling overwhelmed or if it’s the minimalism in me, but I always tend the shy away from recipes that seem to have a list of ingredients as long as my arm. I’m constantly looking for new recipe ideas (usually one pot wonders) or anything that’s quick and…

Shoe Life Hack

One of my friends inspired this post, well, sort of. You see, today I bought a new pair of shoes. A pair of white sneakers to be exact, super versatile, comfortable and basically plain white to go with everything. This is in replacement of the cheap white canvas shoes I used to buy relatively frequently,…
