Ramadan Mubarak!

We may be a few days in but better late than never right? Ramadan last year was a wholly new experience, what with COVID restrictions, and this year it’s going to be new again but in different ways and for different reasons. Here in Australia we don’t have much restrictions this year, so Iftars andContinue reading “Ramadan Mubarak!”

Cultivating your own garden

Hello all! My goodness, it has been a long long time since I’ve last written here. Two years have gone by without me writing a single post on this blog, I got swept up in Instagram, the ease of sharing on stories and the concise posts it allowed made writing on here seem cumbersome andContinue reading “Cultivating your own garden”

On having a slow year

As I lay in bed last night listening to the pop of fireworks I thought back to the year that was 2018.

Beautiful & educational posters for the kids

We love posters for kids that function on two levels, they are educational as well as being beautiful art. Creating a home environment for our children that is beautiful and not garish aids in their upbringing, as it teaches them to also appreciate and value beauty. Here’s a selection of our favourite posters. Check outContinue reading “Beautiful & educational posters for the kids”

Why conscious consumption is a lie

Off the back of Black Friday, which was incredibly stressful (anyone else feel that it stressed them out?), with every single business handing out discounts like drugs at a concert, even the ethical ones, I’ve come to a realisation about purchasing ethical, organic and sustainable. If an alternative that ticks all the above boxes exists, IContinue reading “Why conscious consumption is a lie”

Four great children’s books

What makes a great children’s book? To me, it needs beautiful illustrations, an engaging story, fantastical facts and interactive activities. I picked up the following four books recently which have all of the above and they have been on high rotation with the girls lately… “Women who Dared: 52 Stories of Fearless Daredevils, adventurers &Continue reading “Four great children’s books”
