There’s some very mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day in the couples and marrieds world (‘Valentine’s Day is every day!’ some argue), but there’s something about still wanting to celebrate it, maybe with just a little les

Breakfast at Nice at Nelson Bay

Nice bacon banana pancakes

One of my favourite weekend activities is to go out for breakfast on a Saturday morning. There’s no better feeling than starting the day with a good meal and knowing you still have the whole weekend ahead of you to enjoy! I may be a little biased but Nice at Nelson Bay is one of my favourite local breakfast spots. Nice has a lovely shaded outdoor terrace that looks out over the park and down to the marina.

DIY Concrete Polaroid Stand

Follow this simple tutorial to use a few items like concrete to create a display for your Polaroids, Instax films or any photos.

Edible Floral Ice Cubes

Giant floral Ice Cubes

For now we are back at home and re-exploring our neighbourhood with new eyes, after being abroad for 14 months! I am on the lookout for simple homemade projects and it can’t get much simpler and effective than adding a bit of colour to your drinks by making edible floral ice cubes.
To make a bit more of an impact I found a giant-sized ice cube tray from Kmart ($2!) which also helps the ice cubes to stay in your drink longer, rather than instantly melting.
