gorgeous goodies...

You might remember that back in May I blogged about winning a give-away on Natalia's blog.

I received a $40 gift voucher to spend in her store - Realisation Creations.

Her store is full of beautiful things & choosing was quite difficult, but I'd had my eye on these gorgeous brooches for a while. I might have spent a little extra too....

I just couldn't resist these beautiful, bright earrings. The vintage beads are such fun & the earrings are light & easy to wear.

{I got all these beautiful things a while ago, I've just been a little slack taking photos :) }

Recently I subscribed to peppermint magazine, which is a cool australian mag, full of gorgeous photos, interesting articles & great interviews. 
They have stories about eco designers, natural products, handmade goodness & much more. I just love the whole feel of the magazine, including the paper it's printed on :)

& if that wasn't enough to convince you to give it a go, the current issue also contains a DUST (down under street team) ad, with something extra special for peppermint readers - a web address leading to all sorts of DUST-y goodness & discount code - for getting said DUST-y goodness at an extra special price.

so, what are you waiting for?

Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book

day 6 - { whimsy }

Today is my sister Kathryn's 18th Birthday.
Kathryn is funny, warm, generous, organised, crazy, talented, determined, amazing....she never ceases to amaze me. I fully believe that she will reach her goals & sometime in the not-to-distant-future you will be buying a copy of her first novel.
I'm very lucky to have her as a sister & a friend.
So Happy Birthday gorgeous, I love you :)
