TAKING TIME TO MAKE TIME

You guys might remember, last year we took a two week time out to prep for the relaunch of our site and design new products for our shop. We have been writing this blog for nearly 7 years now and have always been open and honest about our need to take time off and have done it almost every year since we began. It has been detrimental to the way we run our business and believe it is the reason for so many of our successes. This year our new years business resolution has been to work smarter and part of that means taking time off to make time for the new things we want to create. So, once again we are planning to go offline for a week as we brainstorm new posts and DIY’s, create new routines and design a new line of products.

30 UNIQUE WAYS TO DECORATE YOUR EGGS THIS EASTER

30 UNIQUE EASTER EGGS DIYS

Spring is upon us and it’s time to start prepping for one of my favourite holidays, EASTER!! This year won’t be quite the same however, back in January, I challenged myself to become sugar free, dairy free and gluten free. Well nearly 4 months in and I am still on track, in fact I’ve not even been tempted to stray, but I’m sure Easter will be the true tester.

Becoming vegan has not only meant no chocolate but it also means no Easter egg decorating for me, well so I thought? A quick Google search revealed a plethora of Easter eggs alternatives, ceramic, wooden, plastic, felt, you name it there was an egg made out of it, YAY!

Thrilled to hear I wouldn’t have to also give up another of my favourite Easter traditions, I ordered some made out of ceramic and did what any Easter egg enthusiast would do… spend hours scouring Pinterest for the most unique ways to decorate them.

So if your putting on an egg hunt or hosting an Easter breakfast, these fun and colourful designs are sure to make you and your guests ‘hoppy’!

THIS COUPLE WENT TO THE CARNIVAL FOR THEIR WEDDING DAY AND ITS ADORABLE

CLASSIC CARNIVAL WEDDING (14)

Jessica + Kevin are super adorable. Their wedding day was a beautiful classic affair but they wanted to stay true to their inner child so they went to a travelling fun fair! The Amusement Park kept the bridal party entertained with food and games and everyone enjoyed the Swing of the Century – even when Jessica’s dress started to have its own Marilyn Monroe moment as the swing went faster and climbed higher!
