My beautiful Gran had many because every day she would wonder down to town dressed up in her sundress, stockings, hat and always, always a scarf with a brooch in it. It seems way to much work for me these days, but I always remember what an effort she made just to wander around the two local streets that was her town.
However I just bought a very cute cardigan but it needs a brooch to hold the front flaps together. I have a couple of my Gran's old brooches but they are very ornate. Beautiful though.
I really like this elephant brooch. It is fun. Cute colours too.
I have always struggled with finding the right skincare for my skin. I used to by one product and see how it went on my skin, and most of the time it made no difference. I have since worked out that this is probably because you need to use three or four products in conjunction to see a real difference.
This is why I love the JewellSkincare starter pack. It has your cleanser, toner and moisturiser in one pack so you can trial it and really understand how combining the three will make a difference to your skin. It is only $69 also, so far less expensive then most brands out there on the market.
I love having painting fingernails. I also HATE having chipped painted fingernails. So unless I have fake nails put on (which I don't really like, feels a bit bulky on my hands) I only ever wear nail polish for a day before it gets chipped and I have to take it off.
However I just found a nail nail polish called Shellac by CND. Apparently is goes on like a normal polish but dries like a gel for a chip-resistant finish. It is about $30-$50 which is about $25-$45 more then I usually pay for polish, but if it does what it says it will I would pay that.

Gone are the days when I can dress my little one in the fashion that I love. She has her own ideas on fashion these days - (well she is 6 for goodness sake). Most days she dresses in an interesting mix of colours and patterns. Her styling knows no boundaries and she is very confident in her choices. Yah for her.
However if you are still lucky enough to have input into you little ones wardrobe you should check out Hot Fudge on Etsy - gorgeous.
Since having my daughter 7 years ago I have been meaning to do a painting for her room with the words "Isn't She Lovely, Made From Love" on it. The song always brings a tear to my eye - it is such a happy song with loving lyrics.
Then I had my first son and I still aim to make him a painting with the words "How Wonderful Life Is Now Your In The World". Makes me cry as well.
Now my beautiful second son has been born and I am searching my favourite songs for a phrase that best explains how I feel for him. Still searching, but it will come to me and maybe one day I will deliver on my promise to myself to do these paintings.
Rant Clothing is the product of Sarah Garrett-Hodoniczky and Jason Hodoniczky who receive inspiration from their natural surroundings.
The design pieces are very easy wearing and are made from natural fibres, with all garments being produced ethically and in Australia.
On a personal level I love these designs because they are simple and structured. Obviously to easy to wear (and very little ironing, which is a virtue I am passionate about!) and the collection mixes and matches very well.
While we all like to look our best all of the time, sometimes work wear gets a bit monotonous. These dresses are great for the office environment but are versatile enough to add different accessories to give a different look so you don't feel like you are wearing the same old thing every week.
I'm very excited to have found this site : Monkey and the Brown Man
This label makes to order. The benefit environmentally to working this way? No excess products. Fabric, clothing and apparel make up a huge percentage of landfill. Much of this is due to consumers updating their wardrobe, but another very large amount is made up of unused fabric and unsold products. Hence, producing only what is needed is a fabulous way to aid in keeping our planet happy :)
Monkey & the Brown Man have some very cute, funky clothing for girls and guys. Quite simple designs, but very stylish cuts, bright hues and a flirty feel to them.
Each time I buy a new pair of glasses I swear I will put them in their hard case everytime to save those nasty scratches. But I end up just throwing them in my bag generally because the case is to big and bulking and whilst I have to carrying around a bag full of baby things, I have no room at all.
