Home & Kids!

Even though we live in QLD, the winter chill has been solidly felt here at our house!
Early in the morning and late at night are the coldest and especially just jumping out
of a steaming hot shower into the cold air is torture! So we caved and bought a new
heater! At the moment this is helping keep the lounge room where we spend the most
of our time nice and toasty!

This will be used over the top of the black paint we also got mixed
 for us to not only protect the paint job and prolong it's life. 
This coat will give my DIY's shine especially with the 
to give a beautiful, subtle glittered texture and finish. I am so excited to do this!
(Bookshelf/Shoe Rack & Computer Desk! - I will definitely be sharing this project
with you as it happens so make sure you're following so you don't miss it!)

Even though we're renters, we have always spent most of our weekends out in the garden
doing not only general upkeeping but also changing things around and making it look as
beautiful as possible. About a year after we moved here we actually got married in our backyard
after I was super lucky and won a $1000 gift card from Bunnings which really helped to make
everything look pretty. Unfortunately after the wedding was over the grass had certainly seen
better days and ever since then it has been a never ending battle of getting the grass to grow back
properly. Recently, we heard a friend of ours was keeping an eye on his mates place while he was 
away and when his mate returned he told him he'd watered his garden and grass while he was away
for him. Little did he know he actually has ASTROTURF!!! hahaha! Must've looked pretty real!
Which got the husband and I thinking wouldn't that just make life so much more easier and be great
for the kids to play on! Luckily we don't have a huge amount of area to turf because Astroturf is mega
expensive, so we're currently keeping our eyes pealed for a good deal.

So what did we actually buy from Bunning this time?
My husband actually came home one night and surprised me with these gorgeous new
Arlec Lustrous 31cm Mosaic Solar Garden Path Lights ! They come in a 4 pack for $29.90,
so he got two packs to help cover the yard. They look so amazing and are completely my taste!
They look gorgeous at night!

If you've ever been to Ikea, then you know it's a crazy maze of endless eye candy
which makes it impossible to leave without having seen something you just have to have!
Recently I spotted this Pink Mala Easel $29.99 on displaywhich comes in both pink or blue
(I have no idea why the website is only showing plain wood)
 and couldn't resist spoiling my daughter with it! 
It has a chalkboard on one side and whiteboard on the other!
She loves to draw and before this she would either just draw with chalk either on our garage floor or
on the pavers out the back. Now she has her own special easel where she can be creative inside too. 

What's on your shopping list at the moment?

Love Candy!
