Well it so happens once you have little kids and their sticky little fingers get into all of your stuff (pretty stuff) like makeup and jewelry you start moving them to high shelves and forgotten boxes (the stuff not the kids) and after a little while you spend your days in a uniform (jeans+comfy shirt) and if its a good day add lipgloss to it, so to make Coco Chanel happy (and in accordance with this year's resolution) I have decided to pretty up my dresser in our new home (hoping it would equate to prettying up myself) and display all my long forgotten stuff, just have to figure out a way to keep it all camouflaged from my lil girl. Let me know if you have any tips!
I was contacted by Maree at Buyster Lighting before Christmas asking If I would be interested to either review a product from their online lighting store or host a giveaway for Chek readers. Although I was tempted to order a product for myself and review it I thought it was about time I hosted my first giveaway.
Buyster lighting have a great variety of products on their website and the giveaway is a $60 gift voucher. All you have to do is leave a comment here, thats it. I'll draw the winner with the assistance of my team (miss 3 and mr 11) over the weekend.
Unfortunately this giveaway is only for Australian readers as Buyster only delivers within Australia, so I am really sorry to all my overseas readers. But I will be hosting another giveaway for you all too so please don't hate me.
I thought I'll share two of my most favourite links to download free prints. The first one is Vintage Printable, you can find some amazing sets of vintage botanical prints etc here. (I discovered this one from another blog but am sorry can't recall which one)
The second one is Feed your soul-the free art project. Every month a free art work is available to download from various artists. Read more about this project here and choose your free prints here.
I have been coveting quite a few things on Spool No 72 website so couple of days ago I sent an inquiry to know if they would ship to Australia and guess what, they will and I was quoted a flat rate of $32....Yay! The two things on my wish list are currently out of stock but am hoping they'll get re-stocked again, yes I am patient like that ;)
I am a mum of two and love all design-related things from Fashion to Art. Grew up in South East Asia but have been lovingly calling Melbourne home for many years now. In another life (pre-miss 3) used to work in advertising. These days reading my fav blogs (instead of doing house chores) feeds my creative soul. Hope you'll find some inspiration here!
