Can you believe it's almost New Year's Eve? If there was ever a new year to celebrate, it's got to be this one. 2016 was rough all around (R.I.P to like, everyone), and while I'm not sure what 2017 has to bring, I know I'm ready to say "Bye, Felicia" to the past 365 days. Which means it's time to party. So break out the champagne, put on your dancing shoes, and try out these charming temporary tattoos. They make amazing New Year's party favors!
With Thanksgiving around the corner and Christmas not far behind, I thought it'd be a good time to start thinking about all those desserts that will be leftover in the wake of the festivities. Because at this time of year there always seems to be too much food, despite my best efforts to eat everything in sight!
These pie boxes are perfect for handing out the extra pieces after the party's over; and best of all, they're so easy to make...

Vintage prints of animals and specimens definitely have a Halloween vibe so I decided, for my decor this year, to do a simple DIY using free vintage prints I found online. This post has the instructions on how to do this simple DIY project and a roundup of some sweet vintage Halloween prints for you to download and use.
When I think of summer, one of the first things that comes to mind is the refreshing fruit that's in season at this time of year. Which isn't surprising I guess. After all they have so much going for them - they're simply scrumptious, they're fab in a summer cocktail, and they're so brightly coloured that they make great party motifs too!
I was at the airport the other day waiting for my bag to come out of the carousel and after what seemed like ages, I finally spied my little black suitcase. Just as I was going to grab it, someone else picked it up.
My first thought was a territorial 'get your hands off my bag!' (don't worry, I didn't say it out loud. And really, why I was being so protective of my dirty laundry is beyond me).
My second thought (after I'd hurriedly retrieved my bag) was a silent admission that my black wheeled case looked just like every other black wheeled case circling around that carousel.
I think we can all agree that Father's Day wouldn't be Father's Day without us sneaking in a good dad joke or two. After all, we can't let our dads have all the 'pun' now can we? (haha, see what I did there?).

Hands up if you've gone to buy a greeting card from a newsagent, only to be completely underwhelmed by the envelope? Okay, I get that it could totally just be me who worries about such things, but as a self-confessed stationery addict I feel like fun, colourful cards should have envelopes to match - after all, it's the first thing that your recipient will see!
While I like to dream about becoming a skilled gardener someday, the reality is I have a terrible brown thumb and I kill most plants I touch. I think a lot of my garden woes have to do with inattentiveness though - I forget to water my leafy friends, fertilise them, or do anything that might come close to caring for them. Terrible right?
Although we've hit autumn over here in Australia, it's been feeling very much like spring lately. The weather's a tad cooler, but it's still perfect for entertaining and while the leaves have started falling off some of the trees, there's brilliant green foliage and flowers everywhere due to the recent rains. In other words, I'm in a spring mood! :)
