Fatmumslim's Photo A Day Challenge!

Did you read about the January photo a day on Fatmumslim last month?

Want to join me this month in the February challenge and have some fun on Instagram?

Have a read of her post but basically its super easy. Each day of the month you take a photo on Instagram using the word above as your guide eg. today being the 1st is 'your view' - what are you upto today, take a photo!

Then, share on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr or even your blog. If you're sharing on Instagram or Twitter use the hashtag #FEBphotoaday so everyone can find them. There's a great community around the photo sharing, so do share!

Fatmumslim suggests having a look at the photos at the end of the day, just before bed. A lovely way to see how the world evolves before you close your eyes to sleep.

My instagram user name is 'mymessyroom', follow me and I will follow you back.  

Have fun!

Australia Day Long Weekend

Australia Day and weekend was spent down the coast as we have our Little H starting school tomorrow and we wanted to enjoy the weekend not doing much.

As always, it was lazy, quiet and lots of fun. The kids love the space, playing outside, either at the beach or in the backyard.... they don't seem to play the same in Sydney.

Good friends stayed as well and we chatted, laughed, read, ate and enjoyed a few drinks.

We are home now. The school bag is packed, his uniform is out and we are ready for the '1st day'.

dinner parties...

While on holidays we decided to have a dinner party for New Years Eve... summer style in the backyard!

The weather was gorgeous, friends arrived for the day, kids played happily after a day at the beach and late afternoon was spent frocking up and getting the food prepped.

We deliberately didn't sit down until the kids went to bed so though we ate late, it made all the difference.

It was a beautiful night by candlelight, spent with friends. And made all the more special with that little bit more effort.

The table setting was quite simple - old pasta jars filled with candles, an old (but loved) doily tablecloth, a few nectar jars filled with flowers, paper napkins wrapped around the cutlery with twine and a shipping tag and the new pots I bought from the Shady Fig.

Dinner parties, we need to have more of them! xx

you the first to know - we are on SALE!

Yes its true!

Its our BEST SALE EVER and it starts today for all our favourite people!  Pop in, it's BIG!

We need to clear some room for new season (only 4 weeks away) so I've decided to reduce all Summer clothing (except Wellspotted).

Massive hey!

That means Paperwings, tutu di monde, Munster, Missie, Littlehorn, Snugglebum, Alphabet Soup, Electric Boy, Heavenly Creatures, One Red Fly, Havaiannas etc etc etc..


It's super easy to understand,  basically:
Buy 1 item  and receive 30% off the original price
Buy 2 items and receive 40% off both pieces
BUT if you buy 3 or more items you get 50% off all items of clothing!! 

Sale is until new stock starts to arrive and we will be adding stock every day until we have sold out.


ps. This is an instore event only. sorry to all your guys that dont live in Sydney.We are working on a new website that will have more fashion next season... and its looking pretty cute by the way.. x

my new word for 2012...

I decided not to do any new years resolutions this year.

I have some goals for the business that i have set, but for my 'life', I decided to follow Maxabellaloves suit and just choose a 'word' to define how i will live this year.

and I have decided the word will be focus.

Friend will laugh at this word, cause i am always teased that i am trying to do too much, or i am running late, don't remember a special day, forgotten a message .... and this is why i've chosen 'focus'... even if its just to focus in/on the moment.

Have you got a word? Have a think about it today..... xx

holidays are awesome

The two week holiday with the little h's has been awesome. Boxing Day we drove down the coast and stayed until Monday.

We had friends and family drop in every day and New Year was so much fun! The best bit though was just going with the flow and enjoying what each day presented...

Our last night was spent at The Huskisson Fair and it was a fabulous way to spend the last night. The kids had a ball and we enjoyed watching them. so pooped now though!

back to reality.. and a good nights sleep.. xx

while he sleeps...

While down south I had to visit a couple of favourites while the Mr H had a 10 minute power snooze...

Lisa Madigan has only been open a few months and already is looking to be a quick stop on the way through Berry. She took over the lease from One Wise Owl (they are now back at JindyAndy Mill) and there were so many pieces i ooohed and aaahed!  So beachy and her cordial was perfect for the warm day.

2nd stop was The Shady Fig in Nowra, and i couldn't resist these small plants, in fact i bought two!  I used them for NYE table decorations and they received so many comments. So simple and the hessian made such a visual difference to being in just an ordinary pot.

Did you visit any stores these holidays that you loved? 



you like it? i do! Besides being gorgeous to look at, I love the affirmation too..  It just seems to work for me in this month of January, thinking about the last year and what the new one will bring..

I'd like to say that the print is available instore, but not this time. This one is from  Urban Outfitters. The artist is Wesley Bird.

Enjoy your weekend! xx
