Yesterday I told you about my new fancy pants mirror... well after several hours of Aidan "helping" me put the drawers together there it is, the finished product. I'm over the moon. You can imagine me smuggly strutting about the house, proud of my flat pack constructing skills. Totally by surprise both the mirror and the drawers sit neatly side by side. I didn't plan on doing that but to be honest I really wasn't sure where I was going to put the bloody thing! It wasn't until I stepped back that ... [ Discover More ]

Mirror Mirror

I went to Aldi this morning to buy a chest for drawers for the dining room, flat pack furniture to house Aidan's craft supplies which have somehow outgrown the plastic drawers they're currently in. With pre-school just around the corner and more craft activities and inspiration on the horizon I wanted to have the space prepared. When the Aldi catalogue came out with a nifty set of drawers I made sure to be there when the store opened to go and buy it. I had absolutely no intention of buying a ... [ Discover More ]

I am not a morning person. For me to function even in the slightest way, the morning needs to be an easy time of day.

When I saw the Smoothie Cubes at Aldi I figured it couldn't hurt to try and now I'm hooked. For ... [ Discover More ]

How to Make a Video Beauty Tutorial

BEAUTY_SETUP_DANIMEZZA-9

It would seem you guys loved my video tutorial and some might say I'm crazy stupid but I wanted to share how I created it. A lot of my friends are bloggers and I know we're always looking for new ways to create and share content. I don't have a DSLR that shoots video, I don't use fancy lighting... anyone can do what I've done. Here we are in my little studio which is really just a fancier name for "spare bedroom". The curtains are pulled all the way to one side to let in lots of natural light ... [ Discover More ]
