Although I am quite addicted to the Arbonne range of skin care and cosmetics, I’m also a BIG fan of making my own all-natural, homemade beauty products. Whilst I’ve always preferred to steer clear of added chemicals and animal testing, becoming Mum to Rei Baby has made me even more conscious of what I’m putting on
Oh I had so much fun today making yet another scrap-fabric, handmade item. Today’s project was this DIY Fabric Garland for Rei Baby’s room. What do you think? Like many people, I love projects which follow 2 simple rules: Can be made in under an hour Can be made without forking out $s for materials Most
I’ve had these embroidery hoops sitting in my craft box for a few months now and decided it was finally time to go ahead and use them, and add another point of interest on to the walls in Rei Baby’s room. I had always intended on creating some Embroidery Hoop Art. I also particularly wanted to create this in
I am loving the dip-dyed trend for Rei Baby’s room. This look easily adds bright pops of colour to small pieces of furniture and accessories, for a fun modern twist. When it came to buying a laundry basket for Rei Baby, I spent ages searching for the right one. Each time I thought I’d found the

These chocolate bath melts are somewhere between a traditional bath bomb and a melt. I was playing around with my bath bomb recipe, to make something a bit more decadent and masculine for The Big J, as a treat for Valentines day, and the resulting chocolate bath melts are really lovely. The smell is dee-vine!
I think I’ve mentioned it before, but Rei Baby is going through an Extreme Dribbling phase and my mid-wife informed me this morning that it’s about to get worse. I’m not a huge bib fan, mainly due to their look, and somewhere in my mind bibs are reserved for eating and not constant dribbling. Enter
I am in LOVE with these baby bloomers (with free pattern) by See Kate Sew. I love them so much that I’ve already whipped up 4 pairs for Rei Baby in the past 24 hours… See Kate Sew provides the tutorial and link to the free pattern on Craftsy. No matter your sewing experience, this pattern
The Big J and I have a bit of a tradition when it comes to calendars. Each year we wait until January when the calendars have been discounted (you’ll understand why in a minute) and we head down to the shopping centre to buy one. We get there, we look at the stand, we um
