Loving right now: Australian design favourites June 2018

Brrr. It's getting chilly and I've got my eye on warm knits, texture, stone, pottery mugs for warm cups of chai tea and the mustard, ochre, tobacco and rust tones of late Autumn. These are a few of my favourite Australian design picks for June 2018!

9th Birthday Harry Potter Theme

My girls are both mad for Harry Potter, and with my youngest's 8th birthday just around the corner, I thought I'd revisit my older daughter's 9th Harry Potter birthday party to reuse some ideas. Aparecium!

Snap up one of these gems in the eeni meeni miini moh and e3-M AW17 end of season sale

Every season eeni meeni miini moh (for kids 0-5 years) and e3-M (for kids 2-12 years) bring out a line of super-special clothes for baby, boys and girls. My two daughters have lived in these brands for years and we've passed all the clothes on to friends and family - they are that special. So when sale time comes, it's always worth snapping up pieces that you know will go this distance.

Be inspired by Proteas

My Instagram feed has been full of proteas over the past two weeks! Yes, these lovely blooms are in season, but I've seen them in art and fashion too.

Many of us think they are native to Australia but they're actually from South Africa, where they are also known as Sugarbushes, and according to local tradition, they represent change and hope. They are so well suited to our climate, and work so well with other natives, it's no wonder we've seconded the protea for ourselves.

Here are some of my favourite spottings of proteas in Australia this week:

Last chance and 50% reductions on eeni meeni miini moh and e3-M SS16

For one week only, eeni meeni miini moh and e3-M are offering 50% reductions on all SS16 clothes for kids 0-12 years. These are seriously quality clothes that your children will reach for all the time; a great combination of style and comfort that makes them super-wearable.


I think it's always interesting to see which pieces people actually have in their shopping cart, that their children wear (as opposed to those we wish our children would wear). These are the e3-M clothes that our girls (seven and nine years) have had so much use from this summer, all heavily discounted until 21st February 2017.

Bondville's Tutti Fruiti 7th Birthday Party

My youngest celebrated her seventh birthday recently and with Summer in full swing, she requested a tutti frutti. Both girls were excited to help organise and decorate the party, and we had plenty of bits and pieces that we could reuse from other events. The key here was to have one large focal point to set the scene for the party - in our case it was the honeycomb fruit decorations. Then it was easy to just serve up as much fruit as the girls could eat!
