How To Live A Life Full Of Roses

how to live a life full of roses

This post is brought to you by Fresh Flowers

I may not be a huge diehard fan of flowers, but when it comes to roses, it’s a different story.  I just love roses!  Pink, red, cream, yellow, peach – I like all the colours!  I had two wedding ceremonies (one in Melbourne and one in Scotland) and both times, my brief to the florists were “pink roses” and I love the interpretation of both rose bouquets.

Here are some ways to make your life full of roses :-

What’s In My Domo Bag?

domo bag, domo kun, cute handbag

Last week, I turned my back for 30 seconds and somehow, Baby Bunty had crawled halfway across the living room, over to my furry Domo bag and emptied out its contents!  Yep, it seems she has inherited my trait of being a nosey parker!

Anyway, this post is for all you curious cats out there who love having a sticky beak into people’s handbags.  Here’s what is currently in my Domo bag…

Bake It! Easy 3 Ingredients Scones Recipe

easy scones, best scones, lemonade scones

When things are quiet on the blog, it’s guaranteed to mean that “real life” is hectic.  Anyway, even when life has been busy, I have found time to make scones.  Not once, but twice.  Life just tastes better with scones smothered in strawberry jam and cream!!

I thought I would share this SUPER EASY PEASY 3 ingredients scone recipe because it is simply scrumptiously delish and it is ridic how easy it is to bake!  Remember, I am NOT a domestic goddess and I “wing” a lot of things in the kitchen and I need failproof recipes and this is one of them.  Do yourself a favour today and bake these!  Your happy tummy can thank me later 🙂

indulging in whatever tickles my fancy

Fantastic news!  Hubby got a job which he started last week which explains the lack of posts due to full-on SAHM (stay at home mum) duties.  And boy, I seriously underestimated how a mini human could keep me so busy!!

Don’t get me wrong, I love my little fambam dearly but when they went on a Daddy Daughter Date recently (they actually went supermarket shopping in Coles hehe), I was beyond ecstatic to have a couple hours of “me time” to indulge in whatever tickled my fancy.  The first thing I did was strip naked…

10 Tips for Travelling in Hong Kong with Babies & Young Children

travel tips, Hong Kong travel tips, HK travel

After sharing my Hong Kong shopping haul a couple weeks ago, a lovely reader – Hi Grace! – asked if I could share some tips as she would be going to Hong Kong in September.  Although I am not from Hong Kong (my parents are but I’m a true Scottish lassie!), I have holidayed there plenty of times – as a young child, grumpy teenager and as an adult.  In fact, I have been to HK for the last 8 years in a row – the lure of the cheapo shopping and yummy food haha!

Anyway, this year’s trip to HK was different as we had a baby (who was a mere 3 months old then!)…AND we survived…AND rebooked our flights to spend another week in HK so it must have been good!

Here are 10 tips for travelling in Hong Kong with babies and young children :-
