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.

Post Christmas Clear Out

Has anyone else had their post Christmas clear out yet? I started mine today and it feels mighty fine. I was blessed enough over the Christmas break to be the recipient of a number of very thoughtful gifts, however whenever I bring new items into my home I like to get rid of things that…

Pantry Clear Out

Last weekend, we cleared out the pantry. When I say cleared out, I mean everything was removed before anything was considered to make the cut and make it back on the shelf. Things had got to the point where you couldn’t find anything let alone find space to put anything new in. It was most…

Since COVID-19, it’s become apparent that many of us have taken day to day experiences for granted. Being able to catch up with friends, go out for a meal or even just leaving the house is a treat for many people around the world. I must admit, compared to many people, I personally have been…
