Today I was scrolling through Instagram when I saw someone I admire and follow sharing something they loved. And a yukky thing happened – my first thought was, ‘I wonder if she really likes this or if she was paid to say she likes it?’ I immediately felt awful and pessimistic, but the truth is, she probably was paid. It got me thinking about how I feel about this. I don’t want to feel hoodwinked. So I felt that it was a good time to get really clear on what I share, promote, recommend and talk about – across all forms of media. Because I don’t ever want you to feel hoodwinked!

One thing I love doing is op shopping. But rather than search for that one-off beautiful dress, I have recently been obsessed with finding the perfect teacup. Not because I love to drink tea (which I most definitely do) but so that I can make soy candles in up-cycled, vintage teacups, glasses and jars. So I thought I’d share with you how I make them.
Yeah Yeah Yeah, we’ve all heard about recycling before. Boring. But did you know that there is sooo much you can do before you make the choice to put your rubbish in the recycle bin? Did you know that it takes a lot of energy to actually turn your rubbish in to something new?
