Since I decided to declutter my entire house while having some sort of mid-life crisis following the introduction of Bee Glad Eco Wraps into my orbit I have tried to be really mindful of no longer bringing pointless possessions into my house. Just when I was on the verge of Kondoing the joy out of everything I … Continue reading Piccolo & Peony, minimalism and motherhood.
The school holidays are almost upon us. I can hear the collective whimpering of mothers and fathers and other carers across the state as they prepare their already paper thin patience for the whinging, whining and general irritation which is 24/7 with kids.

When my mum gave me … Continue reading A week in review part 3: Tot Books

Did it involve needles and stretched skin? Would the waiting room be full of women with perfect eye brows? But when I mentioned to … Continue reading Now It’s Time For Something a Little Different

And how many different swear words can I come up with when the lids to all the containers fail to come home? The answer to one of these is '2' and the … Continue reading Bee a better person with Bee Glad Eco Wraps
It's no secret that I am Frankston obsessed. So when I heard that the founders of the Emu Plain Market were spreading the love to Funky Town, I knew I had to get the low-down stat. "We have been looking for a sister site for over two years and have finally found a space that conveys … Continue reading You Little Beauty
