Time to refresh

The weather hasn’t been that great lately. Monday was freezing wet and cold and made me long for summer. I am starting to get that spring clean feeling. Planning fun things for summer always gets me through the cold winter months. I decided to start with the bathroom and refresh the body with some nice shower gel. I spotted the new Go fresh range from Dove. The bright fresh colours of green, turquoise and sunny yellow of the packaging really attracted me in the store. Remind you of a spring day. Just looking at the packaging you know what the contents are going to smell like fresh air and the scent of flowers on a summer’s day. I decided to try all three fragrances the cool minty deodorant the grapefruit and lemon grass shower gel and the cool cucumber and green tea shampoo. I am now starting the day feeling refreshed which you need when you have a little baby in your life and you have sleep deprivation.
Did you know that Dove are running a competition at the moment so I thought why not I would give it a whirl and send them a picture that shows me refreshing my spirit. Check it out and have fun looking through your old photos and have ago at the competition you may have a chance to win some gorgeous prizes or $20,000 now that would be a refreshing start to summer. Check out the fun photos and competition on their site http://www.dovegofresh.com.au/
Here I am with Jarrod last year on Holiday sailing out to the Great Barrier Reef to go snorkeling it was really nice to look at old summer holiday photos. http://www.dovegofresh.com.au/

Time for a Mass Denimstration

It's Time for a Mass Denimstration on August 1st ...ditch the dresses skirts suits and ties.
Have fun and get your wide legged, high waisted, baggy , boyfriend or skinny jeans on and support a very worthwhile cause. Jeans for Genes Day
I was lucky enough to be invited to the Gala fund raiser Gold Denim Ball at the Hilton Hotel last Wednesday night at Sydney's Hilton Hotel. Everyone has to wear a touch of gold. Jarrod wore his gold dragon pants and caused a bit of a stir with the photographers.
The reason we where there my husband Jarrod directed their latest Deminstration
It was an amazing event and nice to have a glam night out and support a good cause.
It makes me so grateful I have a healthy happy little baby boy.
There was amazing artwork for sale jeans donated by celebrities and Artists donated their talent and time and created these amazing pictures incorporating Jeans. which you can see on
I loved the fashion show where each outfit used recycled jeans very inspiring it makes you want to chop up your old clothes and create something beautiful... maybe think twice about that. ..but you can see these creation in an a exhibition. Do it with denim
Felix has his new pair of jeans to wear on Aug 1st so visit their website http://www.jeansforgenes.org.au/ and find out about their worth while cause and how you can help and start mass Denimstration Felix in his new jeans..

P.S. I managed to make a small evening bag for the Gala event in indigo suede with a little rose maybe next time I will make one in Denim. I am thinking of making them for the store what do you think?

What's the Russh?

What's the Russh? Ever think about how you just don't have anytime left in your life?
Imagine not using cyber world and mobile phones to keep in touch with friends. Using old fashion letter writing calling someone for a long chat on their land line instead of a text or e-mail or dropping by unannounced at a friends place for tea and bickies?
Check out an interesting article Hanging on the telephone by Nicole Haddow in this months Russh ( one of my favorite fashion mags) and the impact of technology in our social life is it reducing us to cyber social life with less actual physical meetings and good old conversation or is it helping us by being obtainable 24hrs a day?
Taking the slow life the answer? I just discovered this movement watching the news this week.. about a cafe in Japan practising Slow life. Probably old news to some people but new to me. I thought I would find out more and found this website http://www.slowmovement.com/ interesting reading can we help by going slow?
Maybe all these things I discovered this week are messages to me to take it slow.. and you do when you have a little one in your life. i.e Felix You have to stop and play and give time . Everything else just has to wait and you know what ?
You get things done in the end. Taking it slow can make you get things done faster.
P.S. If you are reading Russh check out the article on Louise Cuckow lovely home in NZ.
I wrote about Louise's work last year checkout her website of all things cute.
Happy to see her in Russh Spookly enough she has a husband called Jarrod too and moved from London to live down under..
