When Long Tall Sally and Taller Than Your Average released their latest high Summer collaboration, I was asked to review a couple of pieces. You know how much I love Long Tall Sally, so I was delighted to try … Continue reading
Does your skin care routine change during Winter? My skin has been incredibly dry lately, especially on my hands. All of the extra hand washing, heater use, dry air and a little bit of stress thrown in means that my … Continue reading
One of the things I love about Facebook are the small businesses that have sprung up. It’s the perfect way for people to sell their wares, in addition to markets, Etsy and Made It stores. I wanted to share five … Continue reading
Last week I brought you this post about vegan handbags that proved to be quite popular. It was great bringing awareness to others about vegan products. I have been online window shopping again, and today I have eight of the … Continue reading
It was a good old Southern Highlands day on Friday – freezing, raining and windy. We had an appointment to attend, so decided to take advantage of the trip and have morning tea at a little coffee shop on the grounds … Continue reading
Do you change your beauty routine in the cooler months? My skin care routine remains very much the same, but I definitely change up a few things to account for dryer skin. I wanted to share a few of my … Continue reading
Are you looking for a new handbag? If you are, and even if you’re not vegan or vegetarian, you could consider a vegan bag. They are made from leather alternatives, and in many cases from ethically sourced or sustainable … Continue reading
Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I am snowed under with school work at the moment – it’s programming and reporting time again so I have been very busy and will be for the next few weeks. I wanted to bring you a Favourites Unearthed today that brings you some of my latest favourite bits and pieces from around the web. Perhaps you can share some of your own in the comments below.
Each week, Norlin from Baubles, Bubbles and Bags Style File brings you her loves, likes and loathes of the week. This week she’s talking about nourishing body oils for Winter, and also has a competition to win a very funky pair of Rollasole flats. They’re cool little shoes that can be rolled up and stashed in your bag in case you need some emergency comfortable shoes. You can see the post here – be sure to enter the competition!
We’re coming into Winter, and many of us find it extra hard to get motivated to go to the gym. My beloved DailyBurn shared a great article from their archives over Facebook on the weekend, featuring four scientifically proven ways to up your motivation. Make sure you get your active wear ready before you read this one so you’ll be ready to go.
I was recently sent some delicious Verival porridges to try from Spiral Foods. We’re big fans of porridge for breakfast, especially for Winter, so these have been very appreciated. Spiral Foods aim to create high quality foods, and are passionate about slowing climate change. They have a wonderful collection of recipes to suit any occasion that you can try here.
Last week I went to a professional learning day about using iPads in environmental education. It gave me lots of great ideas. One of the favourite things I discovered was a very cool app called Bookry. It’s not just for educators – it would be incredibly useful for parents or even bloggers. The program would be perfect for creating eBooks to sell on the iTunes book store. Definitely one way to diversify your website!
My final favourite thing is something I hope you will love too. I am a big fan of scented candles, and have been having a love affair with Yankee Candles (particularly the salted caramel scent). They are just delicious and good enough to eat! If you don’t have Yankee stockist near you, you can apply for a shop to become a stockist and be rewarded with two large candles. To find out more, check out Yankee’s Facebook page.
