Kmart Elf door GIVEAWAY

Hey friends!
Well, this weeks been a bit of a whirlwind… Last week I posted about finding an elf door at Kmart, that went viral (over 267,000 views on Facebook!)

Then the Daily Mail shared a post I wrote which you can read HERE… From that came an offer to be in a magazine & also a spot on a morning talk show… Yep – TV.
I am a tiny bit nervous about that, yes I make YouTube videos – but they aren’t live TV! So yes, it’s all exciting and when things are more confirmed I’ll let you know. And what does one wear for a TV appearance?? Help!!

The Daily Mail also shared another one of my article todays, kind of stretched what I said a bit in that one though, but that happens… You can read that one HERE but keep in mind what I actually wrote can be found HERE & HERE... (my child does watch TV occasionally, mainly animal DVDs (movies or documentaries) but I stand by disliking Peppa Pig!) 

To celebrate a great week & to thank you all for liking, sharing & always supporting me, I am hosting a giveaway on my Facebook and Instagram.
You could win yourself an elf door! I have 2 to giveaway, so make sure you enter on both Facebook & Instagram so you double your chance to win!

Rescue Mumma {Give Away}

Hello friends!
Today I have an exciting new company to talk to you about…
Rescue Mumma…
Rescue Mumma is a new subscription & gift box company created by Kimberly from KimberlyRose, this service is designed with Mummas in mind!
The idea behind Rescue Mumma is proved a service to pamper Mums. We often are so hesitant to treat ourselves but this service not only will benefit you, $1 from every box sold goes back to Baby Give Back, an organisation that assists Gold Coast Mums & their children who maybe struggling.
So treating yourself can help another Mum!
These boxes are a great idea for a baby shower gift, a surprise treat to a new Mumma or even just a little gift in the mail to your bestie – because all Mums deserve to be spoilt!
I did my first ever unboxing video with the lovely Rescue Mumma box I was sent, make sure you check it out HERE.

Rescue Mumma did send me this box as a gift, but all opinions are my own. 

The Simple Home by Rhonda Hetzel {Give Away}

‘Being in charge of your own life, and making decisions based on what you want to do rather than what you have to do, gives you a rare kind of contentment and shows you that every ordinary day offers magnificent opportunities.’ 
– Rhonda Hetzel.

The simple home Rhonda Hetzel

Hello friends!
Today I come to you with a give away!
A give away to celebrate being back at blogging and the new year…
(Sorry I did plan for this to go up 1 month ago, but life is a bit busy!) 
So we will make it the start of February competition.

For this competition I am giving away a book.
The Simple Home by Rhonda Hetzel. 
I love this author/blogger and get so much inspiration from her, I’ve been following her for years!
This is her latest book and I just bought myself a copy & one for someone else – one of you!

I briefly saw Rhonda last year at the Toowoomba Library when she was on her book tour and she was so incredibly encouraging to listen to. She was honest about why she made certain lifestyle changes and why she has chosen to live a more simple life.
To me she is so wise & she has such a kind & warm charm to her – kind of like an old neighbour or grandmother you could listen to for hours & learn so much from. That’s what reading her books are like, advice from a wise friend. I really admire her and her practical approach to living.
The message she promotes of simplicity, frugality, back to basic living, family, kindness & the importance of home is something I love & to me it makes sense.
I strive to live a simplified life, a life that is more focused on enjoying moments and each other instead of things.
During her speech last year, she said something that resonated with me – that everyone’s idea of simple living is different. And I absolutely 110% agree with this, there is no one or right way to live simply. I like to think I live a little more simply than others but I know I don’t live as simply as others do. If that makes sense.
We are all on our own journey and doing things at our own pace.  My goal with my version of simple living is making my own cleaning products to eliminate the need for harsh chemicals in our home, making more food from scratch to reduce the number of preservatives & additives in our diet, trying to be more frugal & live with less and to declutter our home. And to eventually live a life where we are growing our own produce & maybe raising our own protein and if we are dreaming big – maybe even be self sufficient to an extent. (The last point is a long term “dream goal”, but for now we try to harvest our own venison when we can.) 

This book is a year long guide broken down into months.
“A month-by-month guide to self-reliance, productivity and contentment.”
There are chapters on organising your year, finances, growing & preserving your own food, recipes for not just food but also cleaning products, sewing & crafts, cleaning, health and slowing down plus much more. 
This book is full of beautiful images and crammed full of so much knowledge and wisdom for life & the home and I’m sure you will love it!
I have owned Rhonda’s first 2 books for years and find them incredibly helpful & inspiring to living a more slow & simple life – the type of life I aspire to. I regularly use them as guides to flip back to for advice.
If you think you would enjoy this book, which I think most of my readers would, I encourage you to enter this give away!
There is an entry form below with multiple ways to enter & you can gain extra entries for sharing on Facebook & Instagram about the giveaway!
I highly recommend this book (as well as Rhonda’s first 2 books; Down To Earth & The Simple Life. )
